    Same here, except it is all cartridges. I had used "generic" cartridges and figured that was the problem. Over $50 later with genuine epson cartridges, it still won't work.

    I have the same problem. the printer is saying my cyan ink is empty, when i have printed anything. Also my magenta and yellow are reading 50% and yet again, i haven't printed a single thing. Is there a solution. The one listed is not working for me.

I just want to print a word document in black ink, my other colors are empty. Why won't it let me print in black, if I don't want the other colors?

When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

How to refill ink cartridge of Epson me32?


Follow these steps:
1.
Buy an Epson ink refill kit. A refill kit gives you all the tools you need to refill Epson ink cartridges. Kits typically include a syringe, rivets, ink, and instructions on how to refill the cartridge. You can find Epson ink refill kits on the Printer Filling Station along with instructions for each specific model (see Resources).
2.
Cover your workspace with a paper towel and fill up the syringe with the ink color you need. Epson refill kits will either include black ink or the color combination cyan, yellow and magenta. On average, you'll need 10 ml of black ink or 5 ml of color ink for Epson ink cartridges.
3.
Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal.
4.
Empty the contents of the syringe into the Epson ink cartridge. You'll want to perform this action slowly in order to avoid spilling or overfilling the cartridge.
5.
Remove the rivets. Use tape to cover the holes you made in the ink cartridge. Return the ink cartridge to the printer. Allow the printer to go through several print cycles in order to ensure that the Epson printer operates properly.

I JUST PUT IN NEW INK CARTRIDGES IN MY CX6000. THE BLUE ONLY SHOWED ON PAPER THEN ONLY YELLOW CAN YOU HELP ME PLEASE


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE
BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.


This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson CX6000 will not recognize the full cartridge I replaced. I have put in old empty cartridges, another full one, unplugged the printer, reinstalled the drivers. Nothing works. It says Install ink...


There is a problem with this printer I had the same one and had the exact same problem called Epson and the told me that part of the board was out and that I could send it to them and they would fix it and it would cost around $200.00 plus shipping. I bought a new printer.

Refilling ink cartridges for epson printer CX6000


Hello,
You can purchase re-manufactured cartridges online from Re-Inks and Atlantic Inkjet. This is usually the easiest way to get them, if you refill them your self they have a better chance of leaking and ruining your printer.

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

Changing Ink Cartridges


I'm assuming you are using originals. I would suggest you taking the cartridges out and re-inserting them. If you are using refilled cartridges and you used the cartridges to almost empty then probably the chip may have short circuited rendering the chip useless. If you bought remanufctured cartridges I suggest you ask them for replacements. This isn't really that high tech but I hope this helps.

Epson C66 won't print without color cartidges


epson printers won't really print if one cartridge is not detected or detected as empty. the only option that i can suggest to you is that, buy a continous ink kit at any ink refilling station in your place. i highly recommend that dont leave a cartridge empty with ink cause it might clog your printhead. using a continous ink system's cartridge is auto reset, whenever the printer says that the cartridge is empty, it will automatically resets itself. ink refill kit comes with 100+ml of ink per color i think. and it is much cheaper using original epson ink.
