It appears that the Epson SX400 all-in-one requires four new inks inserted at the same time. Inserting less than four will result in the unused cartridges being 'unrecognised' by the printer's software. Then when these unused cartridges are grudgingly replaced the also new, full, unused cartridge will inexplicably be almost empty or unrecognised. So, if your printing requirements utilise one/two colours be prepared to waste all four. This is not explained in the literature and users, encouraged by salespeople, are under the impression that having four cartridges is a benefit. This myth should be dispelled before purchase.
