I have a Epson CX5400 and i have changed the ink cartridges and carried out several head cleans but it does not print. This was given to me by my late father and had been used in his business, but has not been used for over three years. Do i need to replace the heads or can they be cleaned with metholated spirit. If they need replacing how do i get them and at what cost. I am in Athens Greece

Hi. Reusing my old Epson Color (photo) Stylus 870 after a period of non-use; took it to work to use with my work laptop. Plug and play found and installed the drivers instantly. Bought new cartridges...


normally you will need to let the printer know that you have preformed any maintenance on it by clearing the error count after such an error occurs and is fixed it is normally listed under general or service options on the printer menu but you may need to look through the users manual

hope this helps

Epson Stylus Photo 870 only prints black and white


WHen your p;;rinter name comes up, check the printing p;references. You have "P:rint colors as black & white" checked. Un check it. It is in the printer dialog box, not PSP.

Photo 925 broke print and i need to replace it


It is probably cheaper ,unfortunately,to replace the printer.Heads are roughly $60 US and it takes a tech to install plus new ink required to seal the vacuum.

Ink


Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Epson 1280 red lines on photo


One of the best possible solution that we can suggest is to run a cleaning cycle for three times. Just to make sure that cleaning is effective please try the step below:

1. Using your computer go to printer utility.
2. Click on Maintenance then select Head Cleaning. Head cleaning usually took 1 minute.
3. Once the Head Cleaning is done Print a nozzle pattern to check whether the head cleaning is effective or not.

Repeat those steps for 3 times. If the nozzle pattern after 3 cleaning cycles still bad. Reseat ink cartridge if possible replace the ink cartridges.

After all those steps and issue still present printer needs to be in service.
