Question about Epson CX3810 Stylus Color All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Epson cx3810 prints blank pages.

My cx3810 gets the message to print, the print "bar?" goes back and forth like it is printing but I get nothing on the page. The ink was replaced about a week ago. I use the printer on a regular basis, so I don't think anything could be dried out. Please please please help! Thanks!

    ummmm... yep. I have changed the ink on this printer multiple times. It also worked for a few days after I replaced the ink this time. This was completely out of the blue. I have no error messages or flashing lights. It is definately getting the message from the computer, too.

    My dad, who fixes printers (the BIG ones) for a living is baffled, too! And when I called customer service, I spoke with someone who doesn't speak clear English, so that option is out!

    Yes, I get blank pages whatever function I am trying to perform, printing, copying, test page.

    My Epson prints parts of the lines on the page. For example, it will print the first line of the paragraph, parts of the next line and not print the next two lines. Then it will print the next line clearly, print only parts of the line below that one, and not print the next two. It has new ink cartridges.

    I have tried it on two different computers. No error messages or flashing lights from either Windows or the printer. Both times Windows sent me messages that the software loaded successfully. Am stumped!

Did you remove the seal stickers from the cartridges before putting them into the printer?

    Then it's probably an electronic fault or the cable connecting the carriage to the engine board. Sound like the printheads are not getting the signal to fire.

    Does it do the same thing if you try to make a photocopy or print an internal test page?

    Then it would seem like a faulty board or cable. If it's under warranty call Epson, if not get an RX680, printer is awesome!

Epson CX3810 started leaving blank streaks, now no ink on page

I went to's technology on google - and as I followed their prompts, I learned that it was the printer heads and that you aren't supposed to tilt the machine. I have been moving it a lot, so undoubtedly tilted it. You can follow the prompts after a right click on the printer icon on the bottom left corner of the monitor and it cleans the printer head. This also solves a white streak problem if people are having white streaks where there's no pringint....They had lost of answers there too.

CX3810 printer will not print

Take out the cartridges from the printer, put them back.

Remove the printer completely from your computer. Reboot. Re-install the printer.

Try to print again.

It sounds like your print heads are shot.

Epsom stylus cx3200

Care to let us know what the error message says, or so should we just pick one from the air?

Not printing at all: does that mean it goes through the motions of printing - like feeds paper, head moves back and forth but paper comes out blank or that it sits there like an ornament no matter what you do?

If you give no information about the problem, you will get no answers.
