Question about Epson Printers & Copiers
SOURCE: no ink on pages
Try cleaning the small tube that is located under the sponges. When it becomes clogged no ink will go to paper. Move ink cartridge cradle to the left,now pull out wiper sponges,clean them and flush out tube re-install sponges and do test page.

SOURCE: EPSON CX5500 SUCKS ink....
Epson printers will clean the head if the printer is not used for a long period say a week. The only option is to switch on the computer and printer and give a noozle test every 2 -3 days. This will stop the printer from doing a head cleaning which uses the following amount of Ink
Thus if the head cleaning is done 4 times your black is half empty.
thus as the saying goes either you switch on the printer every day or loose the printer
I also had the same problem and now this is what I am doing, and now the cartridge is giving a good amount of prints that too image quality

You can download the drivers for that printer here:
The driver is what enables your computer and printer to communicate....that should get you printing again!

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers 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. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. 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.

Open the Epson Printer Utility, Click on the printer name if you have more than one printer then OK. Click on Epson Status Monitor at top. A dialog box will come up telling you if any ink needs to be replaced. Click on the OK button in this box and this will take you to another dialog box which will show you the amount of ink left for each color.
