Question about Epson Stylus CX7800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer


The scanner on my Epson Stylus CX7800 suddenly creates a huge blurred streak across anything I scan. I've cleaned all the print functions, but that shouldn't matter to  begin with. I've never liked this slow, noisy all-in-one contraption, so it may be paying me back for the nasty things I've said.

Scaner can preview but not scan

I had the same experiences before.

What I always do is I unplug the scanner's usb cable and then switch usb ports till i find which port it will work.

In some cases this solution didn't work, I replace the usb cable with a new one. I always buy usb 2.0 compliant cable.

My printer is leaving horizontal streaks across

When I had the same problem, I found out, that Epson did not like Generic Ink. As soon as I replaced it with Genuine Epson Ink, it was fine.

Make sure you do Maintenance, Nozzle Check and Head Cleaning. You might be clogged?

Good Luck.
