The jet is clogged... set the self clean mode on if this does not fix it try another cartridge. if you have been using refilled, recycled cartridges this may have damaged the jets. common fault that recyclers know about but dont give a toss. ink should be filtered 9 times before being injected into cartridge most recyled are filtered once. this causes jets to become blocked, overheat and actually melt

Factory reset


This type of problem is typically caused by one of the ink cartridges which is suffering from marginal electrical performance - either the HP92 (black) or HP93 (color) ink cartridge.

Can you perform the 'Self Test Page' test (see below). If this test is successful then this demonstrates the printer is 'generally operational', but if normal printing is still not permitted then either the HP92 (black) or HP93 (color) ink cartridge is likely electrically damaged and may need to be replaced*.

Perform Self Test Page:
1. Press and hold the CANCEL button.
2. Press the COLOR COPY button. Release both buttons.
3. The self test prints. The printed pattern will verify printer is generally functional. Inspect color bars to verify proper nozzle/jetting health.

-- Inspect printed nozzle stair step patterns - verify all ink nozzles are properly firing. Generally, if the Self Test Page prints ok then the printer is functioning correctly and the problem is with the ink cartridges - replace the suspect ink cartridge and retest. Refer to 2nd video procedure at the following link on how to read the Self Test page test (NOTE: HP74/75 cartridges are electrically identical to the HP92 thru 98 cartridges).
http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=579

*Many cartridges eventually do encounter problems or failures. Severe cartridge errors are primarily caused by an electrical breakdown at the cartridge's nozzle plate. Ink *********** or corrosion into the nozzle plate will cause a failure of the tiny micro-electronics resulting in a variety of different error messages being displayed - see picture at bottom of this page: http://inkjet411.com/?page_id=1216

It is suggested to install a new HP92 and/or HP93 ink cartridge in it to resolve the current issue.

Please telme how can clean the nozell of a stylus cx6400


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 CX4800 prints blurred pictures


ok..first you will need to print the nozzle check and see if all the color are printed out fine.. this feature is under the printer properties , under the utility tab.... assuming all your colors nozzle are printed fine..then the next thing for you to do is do the Print Head Alignment.. it's under the same place where you print the nozzle check.. when you press the Print Head Alignment, it will print a page out with many lines.. choose the one with the best alignment.. once u done that..try printing the image again..
oh..if your nozzle check print out is not good.. then you will need to perform head cleaning to clear the clogged head..

Black ink jet doesn't print


if your black ink does not print, there is a possibility that the nozzle of your printer are clogged by dried inks, to print a nozzle check. turn off the printer then press and hold the paper (middle) and power buttons together for 3 seconds then release. it should feed the paper and print a nozzle check pattern. if the black lines are full of gaps or breaks in the line. you need to do head cleaning to remove the clogs, press and hold the ink button (teardrop) for 3 seconds, wait until the power (green )light stopped flashing. turn the printer off then print a nozzle check again. just repeat the head cleaning process until the black pattern is ok, as well as the other colors. all shld. be complete.

then print

Color differences


i apologize for the inconvinience.

the possible reason why its printing the right color, is bec. some of the nozzles might be clogged by dried inks, so when inks come out, the combination of colors are not balance. try printing a nozzle check first, if the nozzle check have gaps or breaks, try head cleaning, nozzle check after it so you can see if it improve or still w/ gaps, just do nozzle check, head cleaning, then nozzle check, head cleaning alternately until no more gaps then try to print.

Printing a nozzle check pattern
Load paper in your printer
In SelecType mode, press the Paper Feed (fontu1.gif) or Paper Feed (fontd1.gif) button until TEST PRINT is displayed on the LCD panel, and then press the SelecType button.
Press Paper Feed (fontu1.gif) or Paper Feed (fontd1.gif) button to display NOZZLE CHECK
Press SelecType button to display PRINT
Press the Enter button. The nozzle check pattern is printed as shown below. After printing, printer exits the SelecType mode and return to the READY status.
Nozzle check pattern examples:
good

My epson cx6400 printer won't print it not been use for several


I'm not sure what you mean by not printing, is it trying to print but only blank pages?

Make sure its on and the "!" is off.

Try copying first using the unit itself since this is an all in one printer. If it prints then we know its working.
If scanner is not working you can try printing without using the scanner featured on the unit. press on the setup button use the left or right arrow repeatedly and select on nozzle check then press on the color button.

If it prints but the pattern is incomplete (gaps or breaks on the lines) you can try head cleaning.

Press setup use the arrow left or right repeatedly and select on head cleaning then press on the color button then it will clean it.
Make sure that everytime you clean it you have to print on a nozzle check so that you will know that it prints properly.
If there are no gaps or breaks on the lines print on a document or picture it will give you good printouts

Black ink


You may want to do the ff. just to make sure 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 Up or Down arrows to select NOZZLE CHECK. Press the OK button,
then press OK to print a 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 does not print, prints out with gaps in it or some of the colors do no appear, then there is an issue with the printer. That means that troubleshooting is required on the printer prior to using printer on the computer.
If the Nozzle Check Pattern page prints correctly and completely, the problem may lie within your software settings, the interface cable, or your computer.


according to the manual, goodluck!!!

A faded line prints across the page


The imaging bar has speck of dust on it.
Turn printer OFF.
Open the printer. Pull out the transfer roller. Should have a big green handle. Do not touch the roller.
Look inside for a shiny rectangular block about 5inches x 0.5 inch.
This is the imaging bar. Using a lint free cloth with no chemical and no water, gently wipe this bar to remove any specks of dust/paper specks.
Put roller back.
Close the printer.
Turn printer ON.
Problem fixed.
