Hi altashll,

Printers can be such a headache. Your problem could be one of two things.

Change the Ink
First, your printer may just be low on ink and the cartridge needs replaced.

Clean the Print Head
If you are having the same problems after replacing the cartridge, you may need to clean the Print Head. This is easier than it sounds. All you have to do is press and hold the Stop button for at least 3 seconds until the On light starts flashing. Then release. You will hear the printer making quite a racket, but the cleaning should only last 1 minute (do not turn off your printer during this process or you may damage it permanently)

Good luck.

I get a thick vertical black line/margin down the entire page when i scan on my SX115


Please make sure the scanner flatbed is clean.
You can also try to copy and see if it happens on copying.
If it does, then your printer needs servicing.

Change black ink and now prints with white lines through the words on every other line


It is CLOGGED print-heads that cause the ink to _not_ be sprayed onto the paper, resulting in "white" horizontal lines.

Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", using the Epson software installed when you installed the printer.

My Epson cx7450 ran out of ink a while ago. I


Did you remove the cartridges when it went out of ink? If so, the printer head is clogged. Anyway, If you didn't remove the cartridges and the "a while ago" means "Long time ago", is more likely the printer head is clogged. You may need to run the "cleaning printer head" feature from the printer or replace the printer head.

Inkjet printers should be used frequently to avoid this issue.

MY PRINTER IS NOT PRINTING CORRECTLY


you need to use the head cleaning tool in the printer properties, youll need to keep running it untill it runs clear and it uses alot of your ink while it does it.

youll find the cleaning option if you go to your
start/settings/printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to printer preferences then maintinence

How to use only black cartridge on cx7450 epson !


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. You need to consider 2 things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) 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. 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. It is also why the "print in Black only" option (available on some printers) only works when the coloured inks are OK.
The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

Vertical lines


1. Took out the ink carts and cleaned the copper contacts of both the ink carts.
2. Clean the copper contacts on the ink carts slot in the printer and then insert the ink carts in the printer and then print out the page.
