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)

On play back I have sound but no picture


You just need to clean the video heads. You can get a tape cleaner for this, or you can do it manually.

To do it manually and it's the better option. You will need a can of Servisol Video 40 (from places like Maplin or on the Net). Some cotton buds.
Remove the top cover of the video. Once done, spray all the parts the tape touches with Servisol. Wipe any visible dust and dirt away with the buds.
Concentrate the spray to the big video head. That should look clean when done.
Leave to dry, it won't take long and try a video. If you can see the picture, but it is breaking up or has "sparkles" on the screen. Then clean the head again till it is a clear picture.

Notes: don't clean with a tape in the machine.
If you don't know which parts the tape touches. With the lid off and powered on play a video. And watch where the tape goes.
It will take longer to clean the video if anyone smokes in the room where the video is kept.
I repeat NEVER put a tape into the machine till the deck is dry.

You might have to do this again a few weeks months later.

If I hit play on my magnavox mwr20v6 for VHS it will play for a bit and than sudenly shut down


The problem could be a couple reasons. It could be jammed gears inside. Or the payer needs to be cleaned which they should be done yearly anyways. They make vcr head cleaning kits.
Worst case senario is the motors could be wearing out..

Sony 8mm camcorder will record sound but no video


Since it is playing the tape, the play head is ok. Now recording is done by recording heads so you may have a clogged heads or damaged recording heads. Try to clean the heads with head cleaning tape to see if it would help. 1. remove the tape and leave the door open. 2. using a canned air, blow out any dusts in the tape area. 3. run head cleaning tape for about 10 seconds and no more. 4. try the recording.. If this does not resolve, you may have a damaged or heavy clogged video heads. Take it to nearest video technician for a diagnostic. -James

Blue screen when I push PLAY, audio distorted.


The heads are clogged or the alignment is out. In either case, a professional cleaning and alignment should be done. This should not require any parts, just labor. Bring this to a shop as specialized equipment and tapes are required for proper alignment.

Camera Will Not Play Back Video!!


normally you receive a head cleaning tape with the unit or you should purchase one and let it run untill it stops playing. i suggest you run it 2-3 times if this does not solve the problem then you may need a head chage. the change will have to be done by a qualified technician.

Tape eject door will open but tape will not eject


got door open and looked in and saw what looked like the tape head sitting very slightly proud of tape and believe it or not inserted a very thin and pointy bladed knife up as far as the head then pressed it down on top of the head very lightly and the head slid down its shaft to its original position switched camcorder back on and tape then ejected as per normal and it has worked normally since and as i did'nt touch the head (face?) no damage was done and it can record and play with no problems, a little unorthodox perhaps but it worked for me and saved me a probable fortune

Tapes won't play


This is an indication that both data heads are dirty. In a digital camcorder both heads need to be operating correctly to obtain a full picture. Insert a new cleaning tape and run it for only 10 seconds or less, this should clear up the problem. Avoid using the tape that caused the problem. Do not use the cleaning tape for regular maintenance, this will damage the drum surface. Good luck to you! Joe Weibel Custom Electronics (customelectronics.org)
