Any ideas please as this is now urgent for me to get the document to my PC TIA

Can you tell me how to change ink on an epson stylus cx400


The Epson Stylus CX6400 is an all-in-one printer that also features a scannermag-glass_10x10.gif for scanning and copying. The Epson CX6400 prints with ink via four separate ink cartridges in black (high or standard capacity), cyan, magenta and yellow. The cartridges sit in slots in a cartridge holder underneath the scanner. As cartridges run low, or cartridge print quality problems arise, ink cartridge replacement become necessary. As each cartridge snaps effortlessly into the cartridge holder, changing cartridges doesn't require much effort beyond unsnapping the old cartridge from the holder and replacing it with a new one. jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Instructions
  1. Step 1 Turn on the CX6400.
  2. Step 2 Check the ink levels for each cartridge. Press the "Setup" button to enter the setup mode. Press the topmost button on the left side of the LCD repeatedly until you reach the Ink Levels screen and then press the "Color" button to see the ink level percentages (for example, 0 percent or 50 percent) scroll across the screen for each cartridge (C for cyan, M for magenta, Y for yellow and K for black). Press the "OK" button to exit.
  3. Step 3 Select the empty cartridge or low cartridge option on your printer. If you're dealing with one or more empty cartridges, press the "Color" button. If you've decided to replace low ink cartridges, press the "Setup" button, press the topmost button on the left side of the LCD repeatedly until you reach the Replace Ink screen and then press the "Color" button.
  4. Step 4 Reach into the slots on both sides of the printer under the scanner unit. Lift the scanner unit up carefully to reveal the cartridge holder on the right side of the printer. Lean the scanner back to rest on its hinges.
  5. Step 5 Grip the unhinged end of the cartridge cover near the back of the printer and then pull the cartridge toward you. If this is done correctly, the cover should flip back and hang slightly out from the printer on a hinge.
  6. Step 6 Press your fingertip against the grooved tab on the cartridge that you're changing to unlock the cartridge from the holder. Once it is unlocked, pull the cartridge straight up and out of the printer and set it aside for disposal.
  7. Step 7 Shake the new replacement cartridge in its sealed packaging four to five times using a rapid side-to-side motion and then remove it from the packaging without touching the green circuit boardmag-glass_10x10.gif.
  8. Step 8 Insert the replacement cartridge in the holder and push down on it until you hear the grooved tab click, locking the cartridge in place. Remove and replace any other cartridges as needed.
  9. Step 9 Flip the cartridge cover over the cartridge holder and push down on it to lock it in place. Grasp the sides of the scanner unit and lower it gently into its previous position. Wait for the "Charging" message to disappear from the LCD and then begin printing.

Doesn't recognize the color ink cartridge


Good day!Your cartridge is the problem..even if its new or original if the printer never detected or sense your cartridge's presence..then that error will appear..

So,try to change a while or borrow if you have friends there just for reading or proven the problem..

I was changing an ink cartridge on my epson cx6400 and it stopped at the chearge step. Now all that happens is an 'error mesage and nothing works. I have rebooterd the computer and the printer. Thanks


have you tried installing and reinstalling your ink cartridges?, if so their might have been a physical defect on the ink cartridge itself, this may occur if the inks you installed are 3rd party ink cartridges where the handling is not that good

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Nothing prints out on paper.


Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

Hello,

View the user manual here. http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00449611/c00449611.pdf

go to page 60 and follow the instructions for replacing the ink cartridge, remember to have the printer on when you do.

Then go to page 62 and allign the print head automaticly following the instructions it gives.

This will re-callibrate the ink level on the printer and should read correctly for you.

Printer does not print black ink - only blue.


You'll find the printhead, beneath the ink carrier, is clogged with dried ink. Go to http:www.inkjetprinterhelp.us/cx6400 and download the dismantling instructions. Use alcohol (vodka works ok) to remove the gunk and things should work ok again. If you find excessive dried ink, you may need to clean out the drain tube, but this should be obvious on a visual inspection.

How do i change the ink cartridge on my epson cx6400?


I am assuming that you already have a replacement ink cartridge.
  • Make sure the printer is on.
  • If the LCD screen says that your ink cartridge is empty than
you can simply press the Color button (the button looks sorta like a diamond with a line in the middle of it).
  • If you wanna change the ink cartridge but the printer does not say that it is empty then
press the setup button, then press the top left button until Replace ink is displayed. Finally, press the Color button.

  • Lift up the scanner section
  • Wait for ink cartridge holder to move to replacement position then open its cover.
  • Identify which cartridge you want to replace. Press in the tab to release the cartridge, then lift straight out.
  • Before unwrapping the new cartridge, shake it gently four times. Then remove from wrapper.
  • Lower new cartridge into holder, press down firmly until clicks.
  • Close cartridge cover
  • Carefully lower the scanner section and press it down until it clicks
These instructions were found in http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/cx64__/cx64__pg.pdf on pg 12.

Ink Cartridge


Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
