Question about Epson Stylus DX8400 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

On printing the text overlaps and is unreadable.

I have a epson dx8400. I moved the printer when moving house but did so very carefully. I removed cartridges before moving printer and replaced with all new cartridges when new position was found. 
When i now print the text overlaps and is unreadable. Anything that is in colour appears to be printing twice.
Appreciate your help.

Roger.

Go to Settings and do a Print Head Alignment, you may have to do it a couple of times. Open the printer and check movement while it's printing.

How to Fix Epson Printer Error code e-01.


Unfortunately the E-01 error can indicate a hardware failure with the unit that requires repair. Either a paper sensor has failed or the printer board has gone bad, please try these hard reset steps:
Sharply unplug the printer from the wall outlet while it is still on, and disconnect it from the pc if connected there
Remove all paper from the paper feed and blow it out with compressed air a few times > With a flashlight look in the paper feed
Make sure there is no foreign object like a paper clip > Blow some compressed air inside the printer as well to remove excess dust > Very carefully double check on the far left and right sides of the printer (Where the printhead moves back and forth) to make sure no paper has jammed up in there as it often does.
Still have issues, feel free to contact Epson Printer Customer Support +1800-243-0019...

How to remove print head from epson workforce 7515?


You probably meant the print cartridges - power on the printer and lift up the cover above the paper feed and collect area , the print cartridges would move to center from where you can pull the cartridges at angle towards you . Reinserting the cartridges is done in the same way . Remember to use less force while removing as well as reinserting else you break the housing and damage

My printer is not recognising the replacement ink cartridge although I've used these before many times


If you have just installed a new cartridge and you still see an ink related error, the cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow these steps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:

  1. Make sure the Epson Stylus is turned on.


  2. Do one of the following:

    • If your printer indicates that an ink cartridge is expended, press OK.


    • If your printer does not indicate that any ink cartridge is expended, press Setup, select Maintenace, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
  3. Open the scanner.


  4. Open the cartridge cover.

    Caution:

    Never attempt to open the cartridge cover while the print head is moving; wait until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.

    To avoid damaging the Epson Stylus, never move the print head by hand.


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

    Note:

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


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


  7. Close the scanner.


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

    You see a message on the display screen when ink charging is finished.

    Caution:

    Never turn off the Epson Stylus while the ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
If the issue persists, it appears to be an issue with the cartridge(s). Contact Epson for further assistance.

Epson DX8400: how can i get it to print black only


Sorry Desperate. All inkjet printers, from all companies,  are programed to only operate with ink in all containers to avoid other problems. Their is no workaround. Please rate me not harshly just  because you don't like the answer. Rate based upon the truth of an answer.
