  • Do you supply compatible ink for the Epson SX430W printer please?

    Epson SX438W ink for other models

    Yes, as a result of your enquiry we've now added the Epson Stylus SX430W printer model to our website. It uses the same set of cartridges as the Epson Stylus SX438W printer and compatible cartridges are available. Please see:

  • I recently purchased a set of cartridges which were sold as fitting my Epson SX438W printer (from a local store), but the printer will not recognise them. When I look at them the printed circuit on the top is different. They all had the correct cartridge numbers on, the same as the ones on your website. How can I be sure that these will fit, unless I buy the Epson cartridges?

    Will compatible SX438W inks work in my printer?

    As long as your Epson Stylus SX438W printer was purchased in the UK, the compatible Epson Stylus SX438W ink cartridges that we supply are guaranteed to work in your printer. If not, we'll give you your money back as part of our 30 day money back guarantee. Our premium brand compatible Epson SX438W ink cartridges are very reliable and are fitted with the correct chip so you can install them directly into your printer without any problems. Unfortunately, we can't pass comment on cartridges you purchased from another retailer but we hope that if you try our cartridges you'll have a much better experience of using compatible Epson SX438W inks. For further peace of mind you can check out what some of our customers have had to say after purchasing our compatible Epson SX438W multipack in the 'Customer reviews and ratings' section:

  • I have Epson SX438W cartridges in now for T1281 - T1284. Do your T1295 ones fit and work?

    High capacity Epson SX438W cartridges

    Yes, any cartridge listed on this page works in the Epson Stylus SX438W printer. The T1295 is a 4 colour pack of high capacity cartridges (T1291 - T1294) that you can use instead of the T1281 - T1284 cartridges you're currently using. There are two sets of ink for the Epson SX438W printer indicated by the different packaging with Fox ink cartridges being the standard capacity inks and Apple ink cartridges being the high capacity inks. You can use either of these ranges in the printer and mix and match them within the printer as long as you have one cartridge installed in each of the four separate colour slots for black, cyan, magenta and yellow.

  • My printer is an Epson Stylus 438W and I'm a home user only. The printer has a paper jam and I'm wondering what the cost to repair it will be? The printer is approximatey three years old.

    Epson SX438W printer repair

    Cartridge Save is an online printer supplies retailer so we only supply the Epson Stylus SX438W ink cartridges and consumbales rather than handling repairs for the printer. We advise you to contact Epson's technical support team in order for them to diagnose the printer error for you and run you through some troubleshooting steps. If your printer does require repairs Epson should be able to advise you of the estimated cost and how to go about finding a printer engineer to come and service the machine.

  • My printer stopped recognising the cartridge T1283 although only the black T1281 cartridge is half empty. I've had no problems until now, what could I do? Also, where could I buy a new pack of four cartridges for an Epson Stylus SX438W printer? Thanks.

A 'cartridge not recognised' error can sometimes occur when using compatible Epson SX438W ink cartridges in the printer.

Epson Stylus SX438W Printer Review

Expert review of the Epson Stylus SX438W printer

Our Verdict:

The Epson Stylus SX438W may be small, but this impressive unit is a multifunction printer that is also capable of copying and scanning. The Epson SX438W small-in-one is great for home use as it delivers text documents, graphics, and photos. It can deliver a resolution of 5,760 x 1,440 dpi; scan resolution is 1,200 x 1,200 dpi. This compact unit comes with an LCD display. Since the Epson Stylus SX-438W multifunction printer is small, it lacks several features like a PictBridge port.


Measuring 390 x 300 x 145 mm and weighing 4.1 kg, the Epson Stylus SX438W flexible small-in-one printer is one of the lightest and smallest multifunction units in the market. This modern and stylish printer has a flatbed scanner and a printer at the bottom. The Stylus SX438W printer can handle 100 sheets at a time. The small control panel features a colour LCD display. The Epson Stylus SX438W inkjet printer is equipped with Wi-Fi and it also has a memory card reader and a USB slot.


This handy unit has a small footprint making it ideal for small offices or homes. It delivers great looking output and it has handy features. The Epson Stylus SX438W all-in-one can work PC-free and offer photo enhance and red-eye removal. Print speed for black and white, 33 ppm, is impressive, and reasonable for coloured, 15 ppm. The Epson Stylus SX438W wireless printer is compatible with Macintosh and Windows computers and it can print wirelessly through tablets and mobiles. Options are plentiful when it comes to replacing the Epson Stylus SX438W ink cartridges. With high capacity inks and cheap compatibles that will also work in the machine, saving money on the Epson SX438W’s consumables can be really easy.


The Epson Stylus SX438W wireless all-in-one colour inkjet printer does not offer a PictBridge port and automatic duplexer, even as options.
