    Sorry, it'd didnt go thru. My last post I said, that I had the same problem with my Epson. I went ahead and opened up the printing preference utility, and clicked on the maintenance tab. Just like when you're changing cartridges. I did all the procedures like I was changing cartridges, and when the carriage moved into position to the far right hand side, and followed thru, the end results was amazing. I never heard the griding noise again. I think by moving the carriage back and forth, did the trick.

    My last suggestion is to call customer support, if anything.

    Hope this works out for you.

    Good Luck.

    pls let me know if it does.

Printing problem

Your black nozzle is partially clogged. If the cleaning cycle does not work then you will need to take/send to an authorized epson repair center as this is not an owner serviceable part. Hope this helps.

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
