Epson CX4800 print problem - NO INK

by cptrout / August 16, 2011 2:34 PM PDT

Hello Everyone,
I have an Epson Stylus CX4800 that was working flawlessly. Three of my ink cartridges were getting real low so I decided to replace all 4. I went out and bought true Epson cartridges and installed all 4 using the Epson cartridge replacement feature under Printer Preferences - Maintenance menu. All 4 cartridges seemed to install fine, were charged and Replacement Tool feature finished fine. I received NO errors or messages telling me there were any problems. I then tried to do a Test Print from the same Printer Preferences - Maintenance menu and the printer draws in paper the sends it thru the printer but NO ink. I then checked the status of the ink cartridges and they all show only about 1/2 full. I tried printing using Word and wordpad with same results. FYI: I am running Win XP SP3.
