This sounds like a common problem that affects many CX models. You can find a countermeasure for this issue HERE. This should get you up and running again.

The fix requires some dis-assembly of the printer.

My epson cx5500 does not print (test print ) I've been through a nozzle check and have fresh cartridges.... just end up with a blank page


If the inkjet printer has not been used for some time, and the ink cartridges are full then the print head nozzles may be blocked. If running the maintenance nozzle cleaning does not clear the print head nozzles then the print head will need to be replaced.
NOTE - inkjet print heads are not cheap, it may be better to purchase a new inkjet printer.

Epson Stylus CX5400 will not print. This printer was unused and stored for 3 years. We replaced the ink cartridges and cleaned the print head and aligned the print head and ran a nozzle check. The printer...


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!You might have dried it up.


This is the only advice I can give you.

The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

My printer epson 5400 wont print my word document


Try to use the copy function to isolate the issue, if it is from the unit or from the computer. If copy is blank, run a nozzle check ( Press the left Menu button on the control panel until you see Nozzle Check, then Press the Color Copy button.) to see if all inks are shooting out. If nozzle check pattern is not good, do head cleanings ( Press the left Menu button until you see Head Cleaning on the LCD screen.Press the Color Copy button ).

I have an Epson stylus CX5400 all in one printer. It does not print, when I send a document to print the pages are blank, I have put in new cartridges


Do a nozzle check sounds like your nozzles need to be cleaned!! Here is a link to Epson http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Doc&oid=25301&prodoid=36478881&category=Products

Still getting blank pages.


You have air or dry ink in the nozzle chambers, you use the head cleaning facility but when it finishes it asks you to print a nozzle check pattern, click the finish button.

You need to do 4 head cleans and cancel the nozzle check print after each until the 4 are done then allow it to print the pattern.

This will prime your heads and clear out any air locks.

The only other thing I need to check, but it's a bit of a numpty suggestion. If you have not removed the yellow 'tear off' strips, no ink will flow and your chambers will be full of air. If this is what happened, remove the 'tear off' strips and carry out the procedure above.

I hope this helps.

You don't need the utility for this but it would be handy for you to have.

It is quite easy to find, it's on our home page and on the Epson page just below the big blue drop down menu box. It's simply a 'click here' link along side the text "If your printer needs resetting" etc etc.

Good luck!

Won't print(after changing cartridges


blank pages and bad print are not the same problem. Regarding costly ink, a epson printer tech told me once that the secrete to cleaning a bad print head was to run deep clean 7 times in a row and then a head test and it has worked for me several times on other printers (not an expert here, just personal experience).

Additional note, I have seen both cleaning chemicals and cleaning cartridges on the web, example, searching google for one for my printer I would search for cc-bci-6c which is for a canon cyan cleaning cartridge. Don't know if they work but in case it helps.. good luck.
