    My Epson CX8400 is just a week old, ran out of color ink & when I replaced cartridges, NADA! Still have a bit of the original black left, but don't know what will happen when that's gone. Heard there's a patch available that will fool the printer into thinking Epson cartridges are installed, but haven't found it yet - am looking....

Let me know if you find it--my computer and the printer show that my ink cartridges are full, but blank paper comes out when I try to print.

I filled the Epson genuine black ink but the orange light in the ink indicator blinking and the status of black ink shows only 1%. please help. Printer is Epson L210


Did you refill the cartridge? If so, then you will need to reset a chip on the cartridge somehow. Usually epson doesn't sell "refill" ink unless it is an EcoTank series printer.

My epson c59 says the ink cartridge is expended, and the it is not the genuine ink cartridge of epson, what will i do now, but its new


You may have a defective Epson cartridge (internal ink level monitoring circuit) - Epson uses a piezo-electric sensor (in all their cartridges) that is subject to this type of failure...the cartridge may need to be replaced.

However, if after replacing the T0753 cartridge with brand new Epson Original ink cartridge, does NOT correct the problem, then you may have a defective PRINTHEAD in the printer (i.e. permanent electrical sub-assembly which the cartridges plug into).

Will the EPSON SX405 not scan unless all ink cartridges are full?


the printer scanner will still work if you have a considerable amount of inks in your ink cartridge. the printer scanner will not work if one of your inks is out.... this is caused by a sensor which puts the printer on safemode. unfortunately there is no way for us to bypass this function without tearing it down. epson made this feature for you to keep on purchasing inks for you to use their brand.

My epson R260 says Service Required how can I fix this?


Many of the Epson printers ink cartridges have a sensor that allow the printer and the associated software know when to replace the printer ink cartridges (even when the cartridges have ink within them) and/or when the printer needs to be cleaned. In some cases you can bypass this message by following either of the below steps.
Use printer buttons to reset
Use the printer buttons to reset the printer by pressing and holding the "Stop", "Maintenance", and "Power" buttons all at the same time.

I have refilled my ink cartridges on my epson c60 printer and the printer display on the screen is still showing ink empty and the printer will not print


If you have refilled your cartridges and haven't re-set them, that's why they won't work. You have chips on both cartridges that need to be re-set every time you do a refill. You can either buy a re-setter on e-bay, or go to a refill shop to re-set them. What the re-setter does is assign a new serial number to the cartridge, thus "fooling" the printer to think you have popped in new cartridges. That is the only way to bypass the protection (chips) that Epson has put on their cartridges.
Sometimes, the message "low ink" or "no ink" appears even if the cartridges are not totally empty. If you are certain that their still is some ink int the tank, just re-set the cartridge without refilling it.

Epson stylus cx5400 reset???


try doing this :

Reclamping the Ink Cartridges

Once you start the ink cartridge reclamp procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing.

2. Press a MENU button until you see CHANGE CARTRIDGE, then press the COLOR COPY BUTTON. The ink cartridges will move to the replacement position.

3. Lift up the unit's cover, to access the ink cartridges.

4. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, and lift it out of the printer.

5. Lower the cartridge back into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, as you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

6. Carefully lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus CX5400 begins charging the ink delivery system.
The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus CX5400 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on steady.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX5400 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

if the issue still persists - you need to call the vendor - it´s a hardware issue
