Reset ink level counter using hardware resetter, or use CISS chip with autoreset function. But, i suggest do not leave empty ink tank at printer. Ink at head will dried, and next the head will clog.

How to solve the problem of my Epson stylus CX5900, when i turn the printer the message appear in the screen, E-90 please contact Epson. how could i fixed this problem?


Error E-90 means that something is stopping the ink carriage from moving its full extent.
Open the scanner and check that the ink carriage lid is firmly locked down, check along the path of the carriage for any foreign/loose objects. Use an alcohol wipe or similar & gently wipe the plastic registration strip that goes through the top rear of the ink carriage. Be careful not to dislodge or damage it. If the carriage moves when you switch it on, pull out the power cable when it is across to the left and check for loose gears or foreign objects in the gears on R/H side.

If I could be of further assistance, let meknow. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonialfor my response.

I have a problem my printer cannot print because of E-91?


The error code is telling you that the Ink Pads for wasted ink need replacing. If you ignore this, there might be ink spillage within your printer.

Since I don't see the model CX5900 within the USA website, I will assume your in another country.

There is an Epson Ink Pads Reset Utility, but it is only offered within the USA. Here is the link, but the CX5900 will not be in its list. You might try fooling the system and get the CX6000 model. I am not sure if they have to be exact, or if it is the same utility program for all.

HERE IS ANY WEBSITE OFFERING THE RESET UTILITY without any questions.
