    I got the same error message. The problem solved after I unlocked the tab on the top left coner . It works but prints out nothing when I press copy B&W and copy color. How can I solve this problem?

    Epson Scanner CX5400, red light on, starts as if it will scan, but stops
    The little screen,
    Scanner Error -- See your documentation or call service if necessary

    I've tried everything–won't photo copy

    Printing from Illustrator or photoshop is no problem.

What is the error message? SCANNER ERROR?
If that is what you getting, turn printer off then open scanner cover- on the left hand side there is a toggle log for scanner, position it to unlock then turn printer on then try scanning/copying again.

if your having a different error message pls indicate the exact error that you are getting.

My Epson CX3200 printer has a printing error message that shut down the printing. Paper is not jammed. Ink is OK.
Any tip? Thanks!

I have a message on my cx5400 3 in 1 that says

Scanner could not allocate required memory. Quit other application and try again.

I don't have anything else on the screen when this occurs. It runs through the scanning process and then instead of finishing flips out this message.

Any Ideas. I tried turning of the printer and starting over
I have also restarted my computer. No change

Cx 4800 not printing quality colors


Are you using Epson Genunie Cartridges?

Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill 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. I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

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

Thanks and Good Luck :0)
