Question about Epson Stylus CX6400 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Won't print Lost my operation manual so I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Would like to see which buttons are for what. Right now all buttons surrounding printer screen are on and I don't know if that's right or how to operate it. Everything seems a GO but nothing prints. Every once in a great while it prints something from a while back but not current. Tried to clear everything out. Now nothing prints. I think I need owner's manual.

How to clean inkjet nozzles on hp psc 1300

I don' t know if this problem has been solved since...
In another similar occasion with my Epson Stylus D78 all I did again was to let the job done by my Mac (operating under OSX Version 10.9.4 dubbed "Mavericks" - I presume under Windows it works similarly- ). It searches , downloads , and invites one to install the driver of the printer. Then use "printer utility" and clean nozzles, and others functions ( print test pages , etc..) .
Of course, one can do similar tasks right on the printer, such as pressing over more than a few minutes various buttons on the printers ( couleur , page button etc..).
Do it randomly !yes, one learns and it works!
if manuel is lost or google for manual.
Hope it helps.

Several tips for your printer troubleshooting

<span style="font-weight: bold;">The Paper Jam</span><br /><br />We have all had this one happen. You are printing merrilyaway when all of a sudden you hear that distinctive crunch of paper gettingeaten by your printer. You immediately cancel the print job, leap from yourdesk and flip open the printer. "Ugh," you say as you notice the crinkled edgesof paper wrapped around god knows what. Okay, so you have found the problem,but what do you do?<br /><br />The best way to remove a paper jam is to gently pull thepaper in the direction of the paper path-with power off, of course. Whateveryou do, don not pull the paper backwards. You could damage your printer foreverby doing so!<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Missing Driver</span><br /><br />This is another common problem. You are all geared up andready to print but your computer can not find the right driver to "talk to" theprinter. Why is this? Not all drivers are pre-installed on all operating systemsand as new operating systems are released, you will need to install driversyourself. Consult your printer manual. You can also most likely find thecorrect driver online at the printer manufacturer's website. If not though, asimple web search should help you find what you are looking for. Tryingsearching for your printer manufacturer, the model and "printer driver."<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Printer Picks Up All the Paper</span><br /><br />This is a frustrating one. You are trying to print outsomething and the printer feeds in the whole paper stack rather than just onepiece at a time. For starters, make sure you fan the paper edge before puttingit in the printer feed tray. This helps separate the sheets. Also, be sure tostore your paper in a cool, dry place as humidity can contribute to this peskyproblem.<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Blank Page Syndrome</span><br /><br />So you have just installed a new printer ink cartridge andyou print a document only to see a blank page come out. Aggravating, no? Butthis usually has a simple solution. Make sure you completely removed thatlittle sticker from the ink cartridge before installing it. If it is removed,run the clean print head function on your printer to make sure all air bubblesare removed. Just whatever you do, don not remove the cartridge once it is beeninstalled!<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Color and Print Quality is Diminished</span><br /><br />This usually happens when one ink well is running low. Ifall of your images start to look a bit purple, blue or orangish, this may beyour problem. The usual solution for this problem is to replace the wholeprinter ink cartridge, unless you can refill the individual ink wells.<br /><br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Smudgy Printout</span><br /><br />This happens a lot when you print out pages with a lot ofimages with bright, vibrant colors. The cause is usually having the wrong papersetting selected. If you are printing text documents, don not print at thehighest quality. And if you are printing on photo paper, make sure you don notuse the regular printer setting.<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Computer Won not Talk to the Printer</span><br /><br />Once you rule out that it is not a printer driver issue,check to make sure you are using the right cables to connect everything. Onceyou confirm everything is connected properly, read your printer manual and yourcomputer manual-at least the part that pertains to printing. Older printersmade for Macs may need a serial cable to work while PC printers an IEEE 1248cable.<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Blinking Light</span><br /><br />While there is no surefire answer to this problem, it is acommon enough one that it should be included. Each printer has a differentreason for its dreaded blinking or orange light but some general reasonsinclude a paper jam, a printer cartridge problem or a problem with the printerhardware. It could also be an indicator that the computer is not talking to theprinter. Check your printer manual to see what specific light errors mean foryour model.<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Printout Looks Misaligned</span><br /><br />Problems with alignment have a lot to do with maintainingproper print head alignment. You can run a simple diagnostic to fix thisproblem. If the ink seems to be going onto the paper improperly or you noticeuneven coverage, try aligning the print heads before you bring out the bigguns.<br /><br /><br /><span style="font-weight: bold;">The Printout Looks Grainy</span><br /><br />This may have nothing to do with the printer at all. In factit may have more to do with the quality of images you are using than the printer@squality. Make sure that when you print photos that they are of print quality,meaning 300dpi. Anything lower than this will appear pixilated and lower thanphoto quality.

A friend gave me her HP psc 2210 AIO. She did not have the owner's manual. I have it hooked up. It turns on, but won't print. I need the operating instructions to get it going. I have a newsletter...

Hi Peggy,

Have you already installed the printer driver to your computer? This is one of the first things you should do when installing the printer aside from hooking it up to your PC. If you don't have the driver don't worry because you may download it by clicking on this link. Then follow the steps below:

1. Select your operating system (ex. Windows XP) then hit on Next.

2. Afterwards select Driver Product Installation Software.

3. Then hit on Download.

4. Once driver is downloaded, install it .

5. Lastly, restart your computer.

For your instruction manual download it from here.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

My Canon Pixma MP258 printer can't print the red color but other colors are okay.When I print out any words or pictures that needs red color,it becomes green color.I don't know what's wrong...


1. Press START - Devices and Printers
2. Right-click the Canon MP258 series - select Printing preferences
3. Click Maintenance - Cleaning
4. Select All Colors BK, C, M, Y - Execute
5. Wait until the process is finished (Do not start another operation until the cleaning has finished).
6. Click Print Check Pattern OK


If the results print out like this, there are two possibilities:
1. Red ink in the cartridge runs out. Solution: injecting with red ink
2. If the red ink has been filled, and check pattern is still not out, meaning the color cartridge error.
Solution: replace the cartridges

Hi I have a Lexmark X75 which won't print....status button is flashing, don't have drivers disk to reinstall and can't seem to find online....any suggestions? Thanks.

Hello Lchalfa,

  • Okay, so I go to the Lexmark web site. This is the page where you download the files you need. (Either because you've lost the original CD, or because you want a more up-to-date version.)
  • Choose inkjet printers
  • Choose Z705
  • Choose the operating system you have (such as Windows XP)
  • Click on the file and choose Download and Run
  • The program will unpack into a folder on your hard disk, then run to install the printer.

I don't know which button to press for it to print. I have no instructions manual

You do not have to use the printer buttons to get a print except power on button after connecting to mains supply & usb/parallel cable to PC. After installing the driver in your PC, it will show in print menu of respective application. Nowadays the manual in pdf format is available in the driver CD/DVD itself.

Canon mp390 won"t print,on third print head in 12 mths still won"t work ,don"t know what else to do other than scrap it and buy a different make of printer

Hi. I share your frustration. Three heads in one year is unacceptable. I think your idea of purchasing a new printer is a good one. Look for sales and put this frustration in the trash as it must have a more serious issue going on. J.

Error Message "Page too Complex"

Hi Sccfire, This apparently is a fairly common problem with the 2800 series printer and associated with connection to a PC using USB. It can only be overcome by manually configuring the printer?s USB port to work in standard mode rather than at high-speed USB2.0 mode which probably won?t be to much of a problem. Here is a link from a support page on HP?s site that should walk you through the process: Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
