Hi, maybe your having problem with your printer head. try this step.


There are a number of ways that the print heads can be cleaned. The first way that I have always tried is to put 5-10 drops of Print Head Clog Buster onto the docking station that the print head comes to rest on when the printer is turned off. Be very careful not to allow the solvent to overflow the edge of the pad. If it becomes flooded, it will run below onto sensitive electronic components. If you overfill the pad you can also create a perfect siphon at the print head and it can actually cause the cartridges or bulk feed system to drain into the waste pad in the bottom of the printer.
To accomplish this you must first push the paper eject button for 3 seconds in order to get the print head to move off of the docking station. Now, unplug the printer. Go ahead and slide the head over to the left. This will now give you the freedom to access the pad to place the solvent onto it. Do not touch the docking station because it is held in place with very delicate springs and once these springs are damaged, the printer is history.
Now go ahead and plug the printer in and turn it off, so that the print head will dip itself into the Print Head Clog Buster. Let it sit overnight. Doing this process will solve the majority of the plugged head problems. To see if you were successful, do a print head test. No Success? Do a print head cleaning and print head test and do this at least 3 times. If this does not work the first time, repeat the above process at least 2 more times, each time waiting overnight. Be patient. It's cheaper than sending the printer to Epson.

i hope this would help you...

Epson Stylus cx3200 wont print good.


You're jets are pretty much shot. Have you recently used generic ink or used ink that has sat for a while? I had almost the same model and bought my ink in bulk not thinking about it and same thing occurred. Time to upgrade to a new printer...sorry.

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

My epson stylus cx3200 is not printing in black but does print colour even though ink levels in both colour and black cartridges are fine


If you are brave I had the same problem. I removed my ink disconnected the data ribbon to the Head. Took off the nozzles. I used a child's med. syringe with the tube. Filled it will rubbing alcohol. placed the tube on the head where the ink cartage attaches and slowly put pressure on the syringe. Be care full it will flush the black ink everywhere. I kept doing this till the black was all flushed out. Put it back together. make sure you put the ribbons back in the right way. Mine works great.

Changing black & colour ink cartridge


My guess is that it will be the non gen carts they cause heaps of trouble, beleive me. Hard to tell you for sure but the first thing I would do if you brought it in for repair would be to put in manufactures cartridges.
