Re: Epson cx5000 won't recognize the usb cable

You can try using another USB port.

Also try this:
Go into Printers and Faxes in your control panel.
Right click on your printer's icon.
Go to "Properties"
Go to the "Ports" tab.
Expand the left-hand column
Select another USB port.
To check if it's correct, right click on the printer's icon again and go to printing preferences. If there are ink levels in the bottom right, your computer is connected to the printer.

Hope this helps!

No longer recognizes the ink

Are you using compatible ink cartridges? When a compatible cartridge is empty in an Epson printer the printer reports "Cartridge not recognised". This is Epson's way of scaring you into using Epson branded cartridges. Just change the cartridge and it should be OK.

If it's not that issue then maybe the chip on the cartridge is faulty. Again, just change the cartridge.

Can't connect my printer to computer


What do you mean by you can't connect it? do you have a USB cable still? for the software/ driver you can download it from site or then go to drivers and support and select your printer model and choose drivers and download for your operating system. then connect usb cable when it prompts you during the installation process.

Hope this help

If you use Windows, go to (long URL follows)

Download the driver for your printer. Then access the control panel and add hardware. Tell the wizard you have the disc and direct it to the folder you put the Epson driver.

I hope this helps. By the way, make sure you don't have a bad or loose cable.

Epson Stylus cx5000 - no power

If you have already tried different, USB cable, different power cable, different USB port you may even go as far as trying it on a different computer and if for any unfortunate circumstance you're still experiencing the same thing chance are its already a broken fuse or broken board on printer. Unfortunately this is a non-user replaceable part. I suggest that you contact Epson support if you printer is still under warranty from the date of purchase they may send you a replacement (brand new or refurbished) otherwise they'll be referring you to a service center in you area.
