Epson CX5500 fault number 1180 Posted by Author imageGuest on 2/17/2013 Details Despite head cleaning and nozzle check several times, the fault persists. What can I do ??

How nozzle check result? Perfectly or Appear "another" lines.
Possibility: waste ink on the bottom plate of the head. Will disappear by itself, when used continuously. Try printing with enabling "Thick paper" option.

Why do i get lines though photo prints on epson sx535w printer

This is usually caused by blocked print nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the printthen a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase anew printer.

My epson model cx5500 has problem i want to change my head nozzle .my head nozzle clott.printer warranty perod will also over .please tell me the price of reparing it in kolkata,westbengal & also...

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, thenprint head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

My epson cx5500 does not print (test print ) I've been through a nozzle check and have fresh cartridges.... just end up with a blank page

If the inkjet printer has not been used for some time, and the ink cartridges are full then the print head nozzles may be blocked. If running the maintenance nozzle cleaning does not clear the print head nozzles then the print head will need to be replaced.
NOTE - inkjet print heads are not cheap, it may be better to purchase a new inkjet printer.

I had purchased an epson stylus printer cx5500 .

Ensure the nozzle check has 4 colours if it doesn't you will need to try head cleaning. you may also need to align the print head. All this can be found in the same place as the option for nozzle check.

If that is ok try a different paper type, ensure you are using relativly fresh ink

CX5500  Responds ok and tries to print but no print on paper

this probably means that your nozzles are clogged. try to perform a cleaning cycle on your printer . like reseating the ink cartridges, head cleaning for about 4 to 5 times. then try again

CX5500 Doesnt Print.

most likely your print head is clogged up.
could be from the following:

generic ink
not using the printer a long time
when the printer says the inks are low, a big print job is done and some air is now getting sucked into the printhead.

also possible the tubes going to the wastepad are clogged up.

you will need to take the unit to a service center for repair, approx. repair if no printhead is needed about $65.

I have an Epson Stylus CX5500, i currently replaced the cartridge with Miro Jet cartridge which is compatible with this tpye of printer. i started printing and the colours come ut incorrect. Also how do...

You can clean the heads with software function.
Open epson print center maintenance clean head. Or Right click on printer icon on task bar, Select clean head.

Even though the Miro cartridge is compatible the ink color, texture, drying time, is different. Resulting in colors coming out wrong. Try going to Miro jets site & download printer driver or color correction file for your printer. Most provide them.

Good Luck!

EPSON CX5500 SUCKS ink....

Epson printers will clean the head if the printer is not used for a long period say a week. The only option is to switch on the computer and printer and give a noozle test every 2 -3 days. This will stop the printer from doing a head cleaning which uses the following amount of Ink

Black 1/8

colour 1/16.

Thus if the head cleaning is done 4 times your black is half empty.

thus as the saying goes either you switch on the printer every day or loose the printer

I also had the same problem and now this is what I am doing, and now the cartridge is giving a good amount of prints that too image quality
