Question about Epson CX8400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I just bought this printer and after installing the ink and turning it on it said there was a printer error. Itdidn't even prime the ink. Does anyone know what to do with this problem?
Basic thing to do is take out the inks.
Check for any obstructions in the printer ( packaging tapes ).
Reinsert the cartridges if same error persist
Recommendations > Have it returned / replaced to the Place of Purchase or Call Epson Tech Support
to avail the warranty options for your printer.
I believe it has a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase
be ready with the proof of purchase and serial number of the printer if your planning to call Epson Tech Support.

I have the same exact problem of paper half torn removed but I can not see the other half anywhere. The printer has hardly worked for at the most six pages and now showing paper jam error. How do I fix it?

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

Epson gives you a miserable 12 ml of ink. Then it reports empty when there is still 10-15% of the ink left. I saw someone set up a brand new CX8400, print a single 4x6 photo and it said he was out of cyan. I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 20 ml, which is 2/3 more ink. The chips automatically reset to full if you take the cartridge out and put it back in, so you get to use every drop. The ink is in a separate container inside the main cartridge. When it's really empty, you pop out the ink tank and pop in a new one. The tanks are under $3 each. I think this is brilliant because it's like refilling only it avoids the risks and mess of refills.
