Replacing Inkjet on Epson CX5000

I have followed the directions, but the red light keeps flashing and the "on" light keeps flashing. The directions say not to turn the machine off if the red light is flashing. Is there another step I have missed? All of the inkjets appear full and I believe it was only the black that needed replacing.

    I have installed software and "new" ink cartridges and both the red ink light and the on light are flashing in a flash, flash, pause pattern. I have received one error message "PrintOMatic Lite XL error, error type=24". I have uninstalled software and reinstalled it, when alignment page was suppose to print nothing happened. I tried to delete print job and it froze. The ink moniter shows all ink cartriges grayed out with a 'x' symbol over the black. There is something going on with the paper feed as well, at start up and shut down. I am running on 98se. Epson Stylus CX5000 is not supported by the SSC utility.

INK DOES NOT FLOW. HOW TO CLEAN INK AREA.


Hi there,

Here is a few steps to clean the print head of your printer.


1. Make sure the CX5000 Series all-in-one is turned on but not printing, and the ink cartridges are not low or expended.


2. Right-click the printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen). Select Head Cleaning.


3. Click Start or Next.
Cleaning takes several seconds. The CX5000 Series runs a head cleaning cycle and the On light flashes.
Caution:
Never turn off the CX5000 Series while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.


4. When the On light stops flashing, make sure paper is loaded in the CX5000 Series, then do the following:
Windows:
Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern. Then click Print.


5. If there are no gaps or lines, click Finish.
If there are still gaps or lines, or the test patterns are faint, click Clean to clean the print head again.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three times, refer to Problems and Solutions. You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight. This lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the print head again.

Tip:
If you do not use your CX5000 Series often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.


Cleaning the Print Head


Hope this initial / info idea helps.

Cx5500 printer cant print


Unless you have an empty ink cartrige, I'm guessing the print head is worn/burned out. You can check with Epson, but you are probably better off just finding another suitable replacement.

Red lights flashing. I dont think the ink is out and i did try taking them out following the instructions and put the same ones back in but it still won't print and the light is still flashing, will it...


Printer wouldn't print if red light flashing. Check status monitor for detail? Are some ink not recognized? Do replacement procedure from status monitor on "How to...". Unplug all ink tank. Plug only one ink tank . See status monitor. Is ink tank recognized. repeat procedure, and add ink tank 1 by 1. How about status monitor then?

Download the driver for your printer. Then access the control panel and add hardware. Tell the wizard you have the disc and direct it to the folder you put the Epson driver.
