Question about Epson Stylus C46 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

INK REFILL Hi, we were short of printers in my office and recently dug up an Epson Stylus C46 from storage. It seemed to be fine, but once plugged in the red light started flashing and then when I tried to print something, it said the black ink cartridge was low. I replaced the inkcartridge in a haphazard manner (the cartridge holder didn't want to come out and no one can find the manual) and then when I tried to print something a sign popped up saying the ink cartridge needed to be replaced. Only blank paper comes out the printer and the red light continues to flash! Could you give me some advise?

Can i print without using my black ink


Unfortunately, you cannot print without using black ink on Epson, and most other, printers. Some printers allow you to use a combination of the color ink to create a "false black". But, the Epson Stylus C46 cannot do this.
Time to pick up some ink!
Thanks for using FixYa

How to refill black ink in my printer EPSON STYLUS C45,please help me guys!


The C45 uses an ink cartridge, if you're brave you can buy refills cheap, then replace the printer when it quits working. This model (and most) doesn't tolerate cheap ink well.

Epson C46 colour printer green and red lights are flashing....but


Basically your printer says that you need to replace the waste ink pads. If this happens for the first time to this printer you can just reset the counter using SSC Service Utility (http://www.ssclg.com/epson.shtml) or if it happened more than once you shoul first replace the ink pads and then reset the counter or the printer may overflow. That's it.

Epson stylus color 880


This is a very late response to your query, but you did have it in the C46 section. It sounds like you have blocked heads but there could be other reasons such as a faulty print head or main board. If you still require help with this problem, please post a new comment to this effect.
