    How do you scan with this printer (Epson CX9400) ? I can't find anything indicating a scan function even though it is a printer/scanner/copier/fax

    If you have
    just installed new ink cartridges and now your printouts don't look
    like they should or pages come out blank, the cartridge(s) may be
    incorrectly installed.



    Follow these steps to reinstall your ink cartridge(s):




    1. Press the On button to turn on the Epson Stylus CX, or (if already on) press the Setup button.



    2. Select Maintenance and press OK.



    3. Select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.



    4. Open the scanner.







    5. Open the cartridge cover.







    6. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place to make sure they are properly seated.







    7. Note:




      If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.








    8. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.



    9. Close the scanner.



    10. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.



    11. When you see a completion message on the display screen, ink charging is finished.







      Caution:




      Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX while charging or you'll waste ink.




      If you
      remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from
      dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus
      CX with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink
      supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to
      prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not
      touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area, and do not
      store the cartridge upside down.




      If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...


There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

Just purchase and set up Epson Stylus CX9400 Fax Series. States "Cannot recognize ink cartridges." It also has a RED box with a Y and a YELLOW box with a Y both have same number (69) next to them Removed...


Make sure cartridges are part number 69 on all four or 68 on the black if its the high cap cart.

Also check the carts contacts and the machines contacts in the cartridge recetacle for contamination or damage.

I got an Epson CX9400 Fax and it won't print?


Hi!

Have you installed the necessary software already? The driver is needed for the connection between the computer and the printer. You might want to also check the physical connections like the USB cable or other cables which connects the device and the computer.

Horrible ink issues..


Unless you are printing a lot in that color, my Epson Stylus photo color R300 uses black at about twice the rate as the color ones. Most packages or ink, I find, also come with two black and one of every color. All my color ones seem to emply at approximately the same time as the others.

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

New out of box!!


If you already have tried reseating all of the inks and and inks are still not recognized, Please contact Epson tech support for a replacement ink or if they find out after some diagnostics that it is the printer that is having an issue they would be replacing your printer.
