Did what you said downloaded the Epson Utility...reset my counters......turned the PRINTER OF and then ON while holding down the Red stop button and the Green colour button at the same time...hey presto......printer works good as new...
Its criminal that Epson makes your printer fail based on the number of copies you do even tho there is no fault with the printer in the first case !!
Do you know if there is a Utility for the Epsom sx400 that i have been foced to buy due to my Red Light fault with the CX3200...cant see it on the download..??

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

You willl probably need to clean the Pump Cap Assy.
You will need a strong flashlight/clip-on lamp to see what you are doing up in the area you are cleaning.
Move the print head to the left side of 9600. (If you need help with this let me know.)
Use a foam tipped swab slightly dampened with warm water to GENTLY wipe around the seal area of the Pump Cap Assy.
DO NOT USE A COTTON TIPPED SWAB !!!
Dip, Blot, & Wipe. Clean the Foam Swab often to wash off the residue it will pick up. Remenber to keep the swab slightly moist - not dripping wet.
If this does't help, it generally means that the Print Head is also very clogged with gummy/dried ink.
The Print Head cannot be cleaned without removing the Right Side Cover & then removing the Pump Cap Assy. This removing and cleaning is about a 1.5hr-2hr job for an experienced tech. Anyone with moderate mechanical skills can do it though.
Pump Cap Assy cleaning is usually done BEFORE replacing the Print Head.
If the Print Head cleaning doesn't work then a New Print Head is in order.
Hope this helps ! Good Luck !

Just had this happen to me. Turned it off, turned it back on... nothing. In/out with the cartridge several times and when I blew on the contacts of the printer (where the little microchio on the cartridge touches) it finally worked. Did the blowing on the contacts help? Maybe, but more likely is that the it was just repeatedly trying to d oit before the machine figured it out.
