Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I bought new cartridges for my Epson Stylus CX4200 All-in-One, but the yellow and Magenta barely print. I have run the head-cleaning program on the computer, the one with the colored lines, and it improved marginally. Is there a way to manually clean the print heads- the intake part, which is obviously clogged?

Use "spet" (tube only). Add flexible pipe (cut from oultet pipe of head cleaning mechanic). Connect to nozzle. Fill tube with cleaner. Move head to parking position. Do suction from outlet pipe of head cleaning. It's the safely way to clean print head manually.

New ink not printing


If the printer is recognising the cartridge it is probably installed correctly. When you choose Print, check that the magenta image is red and showing a level. If you have run the purge and head cleaning options I would say you have a dud cartridge

Only black and blue will print on test page; yellow and magenta does not. Ink was just replaced.


Did yellow and magenta print OK before the previous cartridges ran out? If so, it looks like your new cartridges are not working properly. Try another yellow and magenta cartridge - you can re-use the previous cartridges if they turn out not to be faulty. If new cartridges don't solve the problem, you can try soaking the print head, in case you have nozzles blocked with dried ink for some reason.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you get any magenta/yellow ink on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Repeat the head clean/nozzle check process 2 or 3 times, but not more. Leave for 24 hours for any air bubbles to disperse. If nothing, repeat the soak process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Color printing problem for Epson CX4200


try this :

Please confirm that the head cleanings were done using the most effective method listed below.

1) Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing.

NOTE: You cannot clean the print head if the any of the cartridges are expended. Replace the appropriate ink cartridge before proceeding.

2) Load letter size paper.

3) Click on START.

For Windows 95/98/ME: Click SETTINGS, PRINTERS, then RIGHT-CLICK on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PROPERTIES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows 2000: Click SETTINGS, PRINTERS, then RIGHT-CLICK on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows XP: Click CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS AND FAXES. RIGHT-CLICK your EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. If this icon is not showing, select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS. Then RIGHT-CLICK the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows Vista: Click CONTROL PANEL,HARDWARE AND SOUND then PRINTERS. Note: these steps may vary depending on how Vista is setup. RIGHT-CLICK on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

4) Click on the UTILITY or MAINTENANCE tab, then click on HEAD CLEANING.

5) Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the printhead. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which time the printer makes some noise and the power light flashes. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing, unless the printer has not moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

6) When the power light stops flashing click PRINT NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN and then click NEXT.

7) If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.

8) If the situation continues after three cleaning cycles and nozzle checks, replace one of the affected ink cartridge(s).

9) Once the cartridge(s) has been replaced, please follow steps one through seven up to three times.
