Hi


The ink reservoir doesnt have to be completely empty to fail. Replace the cartridges. Some of the jets or all of them may be clogged especially if you have not used your printer in a while. If there are cleaning instructions in the manual clean the jets and then try to print from the printer's self test


Goodluck

Epson stylus nx400 no ink after changing cartridges


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

How to remove epsom NX400 print head


The print head on the NX400 printer is integrated into the ink cartridge and therefore when you remove the cartridge you are removing the print head. . . If you want to clean the print heads / nozzles then see the procedure in the NX400 User Guide in the section for Adjust Print Quality. . . .The User Guide can be found at http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Doc&oid=106004&prodoid=63075469

hey friend,

This should be the problem of print head ink nozzle block.The nozzle for the black ink cartridge got dry.So the ink getsdried state.It won't allow any inks passing through the micro nozzles.Head cleaning won't help with the heavy nozzle block.So try replacing a new black cartridge or else bring the printer to the nearest service center.It'll help so.

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...


There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

Try to print something that is pure yellow and pure black. Set it to BEST PHOTO. If you see gaps or missing lines, your print head could be clogged. You will need to use a cleaning solution to remove the clog.

My magenta ink will not print out. All other colors (including black) are printing out fine and alignment is good. I have run the nozzle check, head cleaning, status monitor, and ink cartridge replacement,...


Depending on the age of the printer and how often it is used it could be a dead piezo element in the magenta head or some dirt that is trapped in the feed mechanism to the head.That's why i never use refilled or poor quality substitute cartridges. Some Epson printers lasts for ages but unfortunately due to the head being permanent on all epson inkjets the only way out is for the replacement of the heads or a new printer. You could also try the magenta cartridge on another same model epson if you have access to one to see if the cartridge is perhaps a dud. Or alternatively purchase another cartdridge and check it out.
