In Windows, click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click Printers
Be sure that the installed printer is listed as the 'cx5400' printer, not some other printer.

Talk to a different supplier, e.g., http://www.theinkshop.ie
in Ireland.

You can always do it thru the utility.
click on start, click on printer n faxes
You will see your epson icon with a check mark, double click on that icon, click on printer tab, then slect printing preferences, printing preferences utility will come up. click on tab, Click on the Maintenance Tab as shown below, then select ink replacement icon. I have a red bullit on it for you to see. Follow thru to changing cartridges. It will move the ink station to the proper stop.

If you find this helpful pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck.

Epsonr220 does not print megenta or light megenta colors


The problem seems to be the printhead nozzels are plugged or burntout. I beleive on the Epson, to remove the printhead for cleaning, you must partially disassemble the printer. If you are not up for this, Quit here. If you game, remove the cartridges and tape over the outlet and air hole of each. I find electrical tape the best. Tape snugly but not too tight and once around the cart. If you have a digital camera or a webcam, take photos along the way to help in re-assembly. Remove the drive belt and disconnect the guide rod the printhead slides on at each end. Try and remove the guide rod and print head as one unit. Use alcohol and/or water to clean the print head nozzels, or completely wash the print head with running water. Blow it off and let dry. Put the guide rod back in the print head and put that assembly back in the printer. Attach the guide rod at each end then put the belt back in place. Put the cartridges back and do a nozzel/print head check. If the printer works completely, then you are set. If the magenta still doesn't work, the nozzels may be burnt out. I don't think you can get Epson Print heads, That means a new printer. Lastly DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I can't even guarantee my work!

Epson c88 how print in magenta


Do you mean "how do I print text in Magenta instead of black". Well, you change the colour of the text from black to magenta. For example in Word, you would select (highlight) all the text, click on Format, then Font. Then click on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, then click on Magenta. To check you have the right colour, click again on the down arrow at the side of the Font Color box, and select More Colors. Then click on Custom. Magenta has a Red-Green-Blue value of 255-0-255. Now print the document and it will come out with magenta text.

If this is not what you want, please come back with a new comment explaining further.

Cx5400 printer will not access the magenta color


Sorry. You have a clogged printhead. A new printhead from Epson cost 114.00. Plus labor.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
