Epson cx3900 printer

The paper will not feed through the machine to allow printing, I tell a lie it will go through for about 2 inches of the paper and then stops. The printer is still printing but god knows what on because the paper has stopped feeding through.

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blank pages


I'm not familiar with the Epson Stylus printers, but I'm going to hazard a guess. If the paper does not move at all, the paper pickup feed mechanism is at fault. One of two methods is used to pick up the sheet. Either the front lower portion of the tray is lifted up to force the top sheet into the feed roller, or the feed roller is connected to a drop-swivel to drop the feed roller onto the top sheet of paper. You'll need to look carefully at the feed mechanism to determine if a gear or clutch is failing. If the paper moves into the machine about 1/2 inch and then stops, either the first paper feed roller past the pickup roller may be at fault. Also check to see if the paper sensor between the paper pickup roller and the first feed roller is working properly.

My Epson Stylus CX3900 is printing faintly though it is showing enough ink in all cartridges to print another 100 pages. Please let me know the solution. Thanks


Most epson cartridge monitors lie! unfortunately!
if the image if getting fainter try doing a head clean do this by entering your control panel and bring up the printers and devices file, click on the printers icon and look for the maintence/cleaning tab..tell it to do a deep clean if it doesn't get any better it's more than likely the cartridges are nearly out...
go and buy some new ones:-)
hope this helps,ben

I am trying to print my guest receipts and it is only printing out a quarter of the sheet with no ink.

hello, lets see if we can seperate problem with computer and printer, try running printers self test, i am curios if the machine will print properly, turn printer off, then hold paper feed button and turn machine on, paper will feed and print, once the first test pass, if you want to print the rest, press paper feed button, and machine will print and cut paper, this test is rather a little long, but it will give you info regarding paper feed, and cutting as well as impressions. if paper is dragging, check to see if the paper in machine is in correctly, you might want to check this out first, if the paper is in correctly, then problem is feeding, this is a little hard to clean, but you might want to try some isoproply alcohol and put some on the lead in paper, just enough to get paper wet, and try to allow machine to feed in, or maybe, if paper is already feeding in wet some area before going into machine with alcohol, and press feed button, and allow the paper to feed thru. tear off paper and try the printer test again. if still fails then machine has a problem and will need service.

Print wedding announcements and the print is not straight

Card stock on an HP can be a nuisance, due to the paper feed path. The stock has to curl around the platen.
Some things to check: Make sure you are telling the print driver you are using card stock. It should be in the printing preferences as paper type. The printer will respond differently, knowing it has the heavier paper. Also make sure that your paper guides are adjusted to fit the smaller stock. Just putting in 5.5 x 8.5 paper into an 8.5 x 11 tray may cause it to skew.
I am assuming that you are already telling it to print high quality, as it is for a wedding announcement, but make sure that you are. Slowing down the paper feed speed by putting it into high quality mode can help.
Your printer is an older model, so it could be that the rollers are wearing down, and it just can't feed the last bit as well. You could try to print it in "landscape" mode. Turn the paper 90 degrees in the paper tray, so that the 8.5" is the feed side. This will allow the printer to have a better grip on the paper as it goes through. A word of caution with this method, though. HP's have a 1/2 inch margin at the bottom of the paper where it can't print. Turning the paper 90 degrees will force you to have a side margin of 1/2 inch. Currently, your bottom margin has to be 1/2 inch. I don't know what your layout looks like, so I don't know if you can turn the paper.
If you are the one getting married, the congratulations, good luck, and mazel tov! (Have to cover all the basis).

Paper will not load into my Epson PHOTO R340 printer.

May be the problem is at paper sensor, that dirty. The sensor is at bottom of head casing. When paper feeding, the sensor not get the light back, so the printer "think" that no paper. Try to clean paper sensor.

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper

Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.
