    I have gone through all the maintenace on the printer my ink catridges are showing a loss of ink but there is nothing showing up on paper. I have tried copies,scans and texts created on my computer.

    We have/had 3 of this very same printer copier/scanners and suggest throwing out these pieces of junk from a high place as it's easier to dispose of the smaller pieces. Seriously, it seems if you do not print for only a week or 2 even with full ink carts, these units are notoriously bad for the heads drying up and becoming unusable. Epson gives a run-around when contacted and give only the canned instructions about just cleaning the heads with appropriate solvent regarding the issue.I have tried repeatedly and had no luck. Only get VERY light printing that is unacceptable.

    I just pulled the last one from the network Friday and replaced it with an HP C6280 that was on clearance that uses same carts as my other HP's and it was discounted to $59.00 from $199.00 with Office Max clearance price, a $25 off card and extra 10% off. Too good a deal and has all the same features plus RJ-45 jack in addition to USB. It just wasn't smart to keep fighting the issue and wasting the time.

    Bottom line is I found no fix if the heads have dried up, and even ordered special cleaner from an "expert" printer fix-it site. (not this one) An expensive lesson learned. If you have one of these, run some pages through every 3-7 days or you'll be sorry. I have MANY full unused carts I have NO USE FOR!!!!! I still have one Epson left I only use to print on CD's and hope that it works when I try it next time.

    Enuff long-winded rant, and sorry for no help. RC

    I have the same problem with my 6400, I just spoke with epson and after going through everything that I already went through online with their automated assistant they directed to their website where you could buy a better replacement for a litlle over $50. they also e-mailed me the number of a service center to have it fixed, that cost was $55 for them to clean the heads with they said "happens often with these models" In a solution soak overnight. Does anyone know how to take the head apart to soak it? I'm sure it wont be hard to find something to soak it in to clear it up.

Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?

Epson C88 printer only prints blank pages

See my post about about underhead cleaning. If that makes no difference you will need the countermeasure for the split cap tube. The document about loss of ink on CX series machines is also applicable to C88

Epson cx 6400 not printing colors

Chances are you are running out of ink or need to do more cleaning cycles.

Its also possible that your ink is "Very Old" and may be slowly becoming clogged in the cartridges.

Pritning fine, but no inks coming!

Have a look on tradebit for this rescue kit. It should give you a good idea as the cause of this very common problem with Epson CX machines.

There is/was a manufacturing issue that caused a problem with one of the vacuum pipes. It did not affect every CX but was quite common. Also see my previous posts about under head cleaning

I would try putting in a new set of inks (ALL COlors) and try running a few (5-6) cleaning cycles.

Try some test pages to identiy any other problems.

IBM 6400 model i10 print problem

It's likely a "hammer" is defective. This can be caused by
a build up of ink under the ribbon shield and/or around the hammer "fret" itself or the fret is physically broken. Remember
that this is a "shuttle" printer and each fret covers anywhere from
one to three characters depending on model. Some cover fractions of characters as well. The problem will appear as either
data missing on the left or right margin or a blank column of missing data going down the page.

A technician is required to solve all of these problems as the
shuttle assembly must be removed.

Printer won't print

If the ink is too low the head cleaning won't work. Also, I have had to do the cleaning functions several times for it to work. Will it print a test page? Look in to reinstalling a print driver.
