Hi, its the print heads are clogged up, couple of things to try, head cleaning would be the first option, right click on your printer status program ie on the bottom right of the screen the small icon, and you should find maintenance or head cleaning, try doing this a few times, print something out see if any change, if still no success, change the ink cartridge, if still no success last try would be http://www.supermediastore.com/cleaning-cartridge.html its a head cleaning cartridge to try and clean the blocked print head, if none of the above work you would be better replacing the printer as epson charges £75 + vat to repair any printer, the last time i tried to buy print heads at trade they were about £48+vat & delivery and is really a nightmare to fit with epson,most new epson printers seem to only last about 15 months on average but its the amount of money you can save through using compatible ink, as we only sell epson printers ourselfs and this happens with 99% of returned printers..

Happy New Year

John

Epson Stylus CX4800 printing blank pages


Are you out of toner, if haven't used for awhile the heads maybe be hardened and no toner can get through. It is an inkjet after all. Epson usually has a diagnostic routine to check the problem.

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blurred pictures


ok..first you will need to print the nozzle check and see if all the color are printed out fine.. this feature is under the printer properties , under the utility tab.... assuming all your colors nozzle are printed fine..then the next thing for you to do is do the Print Head Alignment.. it's under the same place where you print the nozzle check.. when you press the Print Head Alignment, it will print a page out with many lines.. choose the one with the best alignment.. once u done that..try printing the image again..
oh..if your nozzle check print out is not good.. then you will need to perform head cleaning to clear the clogged head..

Am getting black streaks on my printouts from my EPSON Stylus CX4800. They are darkest on the margins of the paper but the lines are visible across the entire page.


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)
