It could be the Waste Ink Pad. Call Epson tech support for the correct answer. If it is the pad go to the site below and get a Waste Ink Container. It sits outside the computer. Lood at the CISS, it will save you Tons of money.
I have a CX9400Fax and occassionally print is mixed/missing lines. You must do a Cleaning cycle usually at least 4-6 times or until it prints a clear pattern. It will use LOTS of ink during the cleaning cycle. The printer normally uses a lot of ink, my solution was to purchase a CISS system along with a Waste Ink Container. IMO the best CISS is sold by the company below. I did have to call for tech support once and they returned my call in 30 minutes, problem solved and never came back. I purchase refill ink and it seems that I do a lot less cleaning cycles.
the reason why the printhead is going bad is because this was a problem with the printer since it was launched since day one all tech support will do is replace the print head but if u call them and ask them to escalate the case to a manager and you need to act very irate then maybe and just maybe you should get a refund. the printhead keep rubbing against the bottom of the carriage in this printer causing the contacts to wear off really fast and thats the problem ur facing ,it was one factory faulted printer that was launched
This is the same problem I have with my Kodak ESP-3 printer. Even after installing new cartridges I had faded color and lines (banding) thru the picture. I found many people wit the same problem and found out that Kodak had a very large batch of defective printer heads that were sent out with the ESP and 5500 series printers. I called Kodak customer sevice, the automated systym even has a number to push for the problem printers. Then you get a live tech person who runs you thru some diognostic steps. They are well aware of the problem and will send you a new printer head and cartidges for free and they pay the postage.
all you guys i know you are all frustrated but m just trying to be helpful to you all............First thing there are lot of compatible and look alike and refilled ink cartridges available for the kodak printers which actually screws the printer........i have the whole list of numbers on the ink cartridges which are genuine and i can give it to you all if you want........to fix your issue just try and do the print head cleaning from the home center software on computer to which this printer is connected......if still the same issue then just call kodak tech support as its a print head issue.........
It seems that this printer has issues, I called the number below and went through a few steps with them, my issue was the black printing and the printing of pictures being red.. they are sending me a new printhead...this might just be the issue
Troubleshooting with the Kodak tech (1-800-421-6699 US & Canada)
When this happen it means that your Fuser assembly and printer interior has toner contamination and build up. You can replace your fuser or run some more test print. Usually, the printer corrects itself.
According to a service manual for a similar Canon printer, the grayscale printing should only use the Pigment Black ink PGI-5BK.
On fast it is 300x300dpi with 1 pass, standard is 600x600dpi with 1 pass and high is 600x600 with 4 passes.
On plain paper in colour it is meant to still only use the C/M/Y and again the big pigment black ink PGI-5BK, it only uses the smaller black ink once you set it to use a photo type paper in the printing settings.
You have to replace the cyan cart with a new one. error should disappear.
Even though you didnt use cyan the machine needs some ink to keep the noozles wet. Therefore machine does some automatic cleaning cycles which consumes some ink.
BTW: did you program the date/hour settings? Do so and do NOT disconnect machine from constant power, because data will be deleted. machine will do its cleaning cycles about every 2 weeks. otherwise it will do the cleaning everytime its powered up!
