Question about Epson Stylus CX3200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

No color ink cartridge

It has been awhile since I've had my Epson Stylus CX3200 hooked up to my computer and had ink in it. Now I've hooked it up and turned it on to copy something. I only have black ink in it and the message on the front says " No color ink cartridge-- Press color copy button to install new ink...". Do I have to have color ink in it as well in order to copy even just black and white?

Bought new cartridged, replaced the old one but the content is not getting printed


Hi,

Check the control panel for error indicators. The error light is to the left of the display and is marked "Error," it will illuminate. The error will appear on the screen and is in plain English, so very simple to interpret. An example is "Color or Black Ink Out," meaning there's no ink.

  • 2 Verify that the Epson Stylus CX3200 is connected to the printer with a cable. Try connecting without a USB hub while troubleshooting---that way you can identify if the problem is with the hub or printer. Replace the cable, it may be bad.
  • 3 Print a nozzle check pattern to determine the extent of the problem. The nozzle check will allow you to determine whether the printer will print at all, and the results will give you a good indication of print problems. Press the Menu button on the Control Panel until you see Nozzle Check and press the Color Copy button.
  • 4 Replace the printer cartridges if the Control Panel suggests you do so. Press the Menu button until you see "Change Cartridge" Press the Color Copy button and the cartridges will move to their change position. Lift the scanner and unclamp the cartridge. Replace the cartridge---color is on the right and black on the left. The Epson Stylus CX3200 will start charging the cartridge and after about thirty seconds the printer will be ready for use.

    Epson cx3200 printer has printing problem


    Hello cockie ,

    You can diagnose most problems by checking the control panel LED's for ink out, paper-out or copier problem.
    If a problem occurs while you're printing, you'll see an error message in the progress window on your computer.
    It may also be helpful to try running a printer nozzle check.

    See the following message problems and solutions:

    Ink not empty


    You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
    Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

    Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

    The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
    I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

    For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
    When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

    I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

    If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

    Happy trouble free printing
