Printer keeps jamming and says to turn printer off and turn back on. once I turned the printer off and then back on a printer code of 59.90 keeps appearing.

Error 59.90 refers to the problem with the transfer belt motor. Try to open the front cover and reseat the ETB, sometimes it helps. If the error appears again, probably you'll have to change the ETB.

I have a cx6400 epson printer, when I turned it on the gold belt inside made a noise as it turned. I got an error message to call a service rep. Is this something I can replace myself, or do I need to take...

If you mean the rubber belt with teeth on it, first check it's still attached at both ends. If it can't move your head along its slider, it will be because the head is in the locked position.

There will be a little plastic release bar in front of the print head which is locked on the right hand side of your printer. Gentle push the release bar and you should be able to pull the print head away from its locked position.

When you turn on the printer, the head will move and reset itself, hopefully without locking this time.

If it continues to lock then the whole assembly on the right hand side of your printer has lifted slightly.

With the printer turned off and the head slid to the left (see above) put your hand onto the locking/cleaning assembly and press down and it should pop back into its seat.

Turn on the printer and it should reset.

If its the gold/copper looking sensor marker strip behind the print head you are talking about, this is held in position by sprung hooks at each end and the strip is simply hooked over protruding hooks. Attach one end then stretch slightly (compressing the spring) to attach the other. The head uses this to position itself when printing and it is a precise and essential piece of equipment. So be careful with it.

I hope any of this helped.

Not workin'

I assume you've checked and done all the basic things like a power down and power up reset and checked to make sure all the ink cartdridges are properly installed and seated.

The user manual discusses your error message and suggests you do the following: Open the scanner unit to make sure any tape securing the ink cartridge holder has been removed; close the scanner unit/ press the ON button to turn off the CX6400, then turn it back on . If the error message still appears, contact your epson dealer or Epson tech support. If so,then you may want to get direct support and information from Epson at this website :

I would be willing to be it's one of two things.

Most common is a jammed gear on the imaging units. Remove all imaging units CMKY. The turn on machine. If the noise is gone, start replacing imaging unit one at a time tile noise reappears. Replace defective imaging unit.

If that doesn't work remove the accumulator belt from the right side of the machine and then turn machine on, see if noise is gone. If so replace accumulator belt.
