Re: Fluffy print not sharp

Have you changed ink stock? What about paper, are you using specific ink jet paper? Make sure the gap from the printer to the paper has not been opened up (if set to envelope or similar)

How do you remove printer heads on cx3200

The two clips that swing down and hold the ink cartridges can be easily removed without breaking anything or removing screws. Look at the hinge points and use a screwdriver to gently pry one hinge of each clip out and the clips will simply lift out. But after that there are 2 small screws that hold the print heads in that ink cartridge carriage. Remove them and keep track of them. The white clip positioned in the color ink cartridge bay helps to hold the ribbon cable in place, but once you see what will move in regard to the print head, you can loosen the white clip and the print head should lift up. In this way, conceivably, the CX3200 print head should detach from the ribbon cables (there are 2) and a new one goes in its place. I'm dealing with a friend's CX3200 that the black is not printing and I'm cleaning it out and finding a lot of dried sticky ink. Probably used until dry or refilled the cartridge with the wrong type of black ink.

Epson cx3200 error light is on and screen reads "printing error consult documentation if neccessary contact service" have tried reseting the protection counter but doesnt seem to work any ideas?

look for anything jamming the print head, then try lubricating the bar the print head runs on. power off then gently move the head left to right so spread the oil. hope this helps

Epson cx3200 wrong colour

It is possible that when the printer senses not enough black ink it will swap to using the colour tanks to try and make a BLACK.

It is also possible that you have mistakenly adjusted a setting in the epson printer program to use the colour tanks to print black and white photographs.

Either of those would certainly cause the problem you describe

Check ALL your printer settings both the windows ones AND your epson ones

CX3200. When printing A4 document in normal mode, it starts correctly then after maybe half a dozen lines there's much clunking and whirring and the print realigns itself more to the centre of the page,...

it could be one of 2 things, your carriage shaft might be dirty and needs lubricating. when the printhead goes left and right, if it has to work hard to do it, the part that holds the belt could be releasing tension causing a noise. another possibility is the screw that is holding the part that holds the belt is loose and needs tightening.

Epsom cx3200 off brand ink refill

Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. You may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.

When you don't turn on your EPSON CX3200 for a long time, the print quality can decline. It's a good idea to turn on your EPSON CX3200 at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

1. Make sure the EPSON CX3200 is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off.
If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.
2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Cleaning and then press the Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON CX3200 makes some noise and the Operate light flashes. Never turn off the EPSON CX3200 while the Operate light is flashing, unless the EPSON CX3200 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes. setViewedFAQCookie(14082, 31605);

Epson stylus cx3200

If using XP or Vista:

Go under Control Panel -> Printers -> Right Click on printer preferences and choose option to service/clean print heads.

After that print test page.

If still not right suggest new printer due to cost of repairing.

Hope this helps.
