Question about Epson Stylus CX6400 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

My epson stylus cx6400 doesn't print. it was doing fine at first. when i changed cartridges nothing prints out on the paper. paper goes through fine, i hear the printer printing, but nothing comes out on the paper. Same issue -- Ink levels show 60%, but paper comes out as clean as it goes in, even though the printer makes passes as if it was printing. I'd really appreciate any help with this! I've had this printer for a few years now and all of a sudden, it won't print. The printer goes through the motions of printing, but the paper comes out clean. I've changed to new ink cartridges and not luck. I've read in this Epson troubleshooting website that another Epson CX6400 has the same problem. Is this a common problem with this printer? Please help.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

SOURCE: please telme how can clean the nozell of a stylus

Please perform the following steps to ensure your printer is physically functioning.

1) Disconnect the printer cable that is connecting printer to the computer.
2) Turn the printer ON by holding down the POWER button for about 3 seconds.
3) Load A4 or LETTER size paper in the sheet feeder on the back of the printer. Press the SETUP button to enter Setup Mode.
4) Press the green button next to the LCD screen until you see NOZZLE CHECK is displayed, then press the COLOR button to print the nozzle check.
5) The printer will print a pattern displaying a number and a nozzle pattern with black & color. Examine the nozzle check pattern that has printed. Each staggered horizontal line and straight vertical line should be complete.
6) To exit the SETUP mode, simply press the COPY mode so that it is illuminated or the copy options appear in the LCD.

If the nozzle check pattern page doesn't print or if it prints with gaps or missing sections, the print head may need cleaning or the ink cartridge(s) may need to be replaced.

If the nozzle check pattern page prints correctly, the problem may be with your software settings, the interface cable, or your computer.

Epson Stylus Photo R300 sounds like it's printing


I know there are some cleaning cartridges with a chemical thinner that could clean any ink residual that could interfere with proper function of the printing head.
If this doesn't work you probably have to replace the head.
Check also the flat cable that follows the printing head during movement.

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

I press print. It acts all busy and loud. Prints NOTHING


If paper is feeding through and you don't get any errors try this: Try doing 4 to 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Hope this helps.

Not printing


You probably have paper debris stuck to the underside of the print head.

While you are printing, pull the lead from the back of the printer leaving the head free floating and unlocked so you can slide it back & fore. Get a piece of kitchen roll and fold it until it's the size of the track beneath the print head slide the head to the left, place the folded kitchen roll flat down in the print track, slide the head over the folded kitchen roll until it appears on both sides of the head. Grab both ends of the roll and lift it toward the head. Slide the roll sideways left and right to physically clean the bottom of the print head. Try not to tear it as it will trap under the head. let go of one end and slide the head away until you can pull the roll out. It should have a lot of ink and gunk on it. Plug the printer in and the head will reset itself.

Now because printing has been non existant, you'll need to "Prime" the heads. Use the maintenance software and click head cleaning, when finished do not allow the nozzle check pattern to print. Carry out 3 more head cleans cancelling the nozzle check after each one by clicking [Finish] until 4 cleans have been completed. Then allow the nozzle check pattern to print and it should be back to normal. If not perfect, carry out another "Prime" as above.

Hope this helped.

try doing 4 head cleans and then leave the printer powered up over night. Don't print or anything else after the head cleans until the morning then do one more head clean (this soaks the print head in ink overnight and then the final head clean should clear any obstruction. If the printer still refuses to print in colour, you could try replacing the cartridges anyway as they can be faulty. The only problem is thaty sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new priner. (how silly is that!) By the way, are you using compats or epson original ink carts?

Blank pages are indicative ofdried ink.

If the printer has not been used for a long time ink may have settled and dried in the heads.

You may need to replace the cartridges (IF they are very old) and run several head cleanings if there is no improvement.

I typicall try to print a few test pages to see if some of the color work.
