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

3 Answers

CX6400 won't pring at all

I was almost done printing about 70 pages in all colors and it ran out of yellow ink. I replaced the cartridge and it printed again but the colors were off. Soon after, it only printed in cyan. Now it won't print anything.

    I've done a nozzle check, cleaned the print heads several times, taken the cartridges out and shaken them, etc. Nothing works. I read that it might be an alignment problem but nothing prints so I don't know how to fix if it is an alignment issue. It might also be clogged nozzles but I don't know how to fix that either.

Welcome to Fixya! You need to disconnect the Cables and Power from the Printer for 5 Min. Uninstall and Reinstall your Software for the Printer and Restart your PC. Reinstall the Cables and Run the Software. Run the Setup and Print a Test Page. Should be just Fine.

Can you tell me how to change ink on an epson stylus cx400


The Epson Stylus CX6400 is an all-in-one printer that also features a scannermag-glass_10x10.gif for scanning and copying. The Epson CX6400 prints with ink via four separate ink cartridges in black (high or standard capacity), cyan, magenta and yellow. The cartridges sit in slots in a cartridge holder underneath the scanner. As cartridges run low, or cartridge print quality problems arise, ink cartridge replacement become necessary. As each cartridge snaps effortlessly into the cartridge holder, changing cartridges doesn't require much effort beyond unsnapping the old cartridge from the holder and replacing it with a new one. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions
  1. Step 1 Turn on the CX6400.
  2. Step 2 Check the ink levels for each cartridge. Press the "Setup" button to enter the setup mode. Press the topmost button on the left side of the LCD repeatedly until you reach the Ink Levels screen and then press the "Color" button to see the ink level percentages (for example, 0 percent or 50 percent) scroll across the screen for each cartridge (C for cyan, M for magenta, Y for yellow and K for black). Press the "OK" button to exit.
  3. Step 3 Select the empty cartridge or low cartridge option on your printer. If you're dealing with one or more empty cartridges, press the "Color" button. If you've decided to replace low ink cartridges, press the "Setup" button, press the topmost button on the left side of the LCD repeatedly until you reach the Replace Ink screen and then press the "Color" button.
  4. Step 4 Reach into the slots on both sides of the printer under the scanner unit. Lift the scanner unit up carefully to reveal the cartridge holder on the right side of the printer. Lean the scanner back to rest on its hinges.
  5. Step 5 Grip the unhinged end of the cartridge cover near the back of the printer and then pull the cartridge toward you. If this is done correctly, the cover should flip back and hang slightly out from the printer on a hinge.
  6. Step 6 Press your fingertip against the grooved tab on the cartridge that you're changing to unlock the cartridge from the holder. Once it is unlocked, pull the cartridge straight up and out of the printer and set it aside for disposal.
  7. Step 7 Shake the new replacement cartridge in its sealed packaging four to five times using a rapid side-to-side motion and then remove it from the packaging without touching the green circuit boardmag-glass_10x10.gif.
  8. Step 8 Insert the replacement cartridge in the holder and push down on it until you hear the grooved tab click, locking the cartridge in place. Remove and replace any other cartridges as needed.
  9. Step 9 Flip the cartridge cover over the cartridge holder and push down on it to lock it in place. Grasp the sides of the scanner unit and lower it gently into its previous position. Wait for the "Charging" message to disappear from the LCD and then begin printing.

Canon Pixma yellow color problem


Either the ink you are using is not going to give the color you want, or you have print heads that are blocked.

It depends what type of things you are printing. If you are printing text, you should be able to print more pages. If you are printing photos, you are using more ink per page. If you use more of one color, you may also run out quicker. You didn't say if you were running out of ink in the black or the color or both cartridges. The black cartridge is rated at 200 pages and the color cartridge is rated at 150 pages. This is based on printing pages that may differ drastically from what you actually print. Here's a web link that explains this in more detail.

http://www.hp.com/pageyield/articles/us/en/IsoInkjetYield.html

Next time you buy a printer, spend a little more and find a printer that has a larger cartridge (check the number of ml (milliliters) in the cartridge). These printers cost a bit more but you will save on the cost of the ink. Cartridges all cost roughly the same regardless of how much ink they have. You can also look at websites that rate each printer cost per black and white and color pages.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Epson CX6400 Wont Print after being left on for a week.


I agree with Epson. Epson printers are very very hard to unclog. You can spend around $25 for a cleaning kit and *maybe* get it to work, or get a whole new printer that is faster and better quality for less than $100.

Epson Stylus CX6400 All-In-One InkJet


try doing 4 head cleans and then leave the printer powered up over night. Don't print or anything else after the head cleans until the morning then do one more head clean (this soaks the print head in ink overnight and then the final head clean should clear any obstruction. If the printer still refuses to print in colour, you could try replacing the cartridges anyway as they can be faulty. The only problem is thaty sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new priner. (how silly is that!) By the way, are you using compats or epson original ink carts?

Color Quality is not so great anymore


Sounds like the machine needs to be cleaned. Probably a heavy use machine that has quite a bit of ink spray build up on the inside. I would imagine your service station has quite a bit of ink build up in it as well possibly causing the cartridges not to be cleaned like they should. A good cleaning cures most of what ails inkjet printers. We would charge $85 in our shop for complete disassembly down to the metal frame and cleaning.
