Question about Epson Stylus NX400 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Scanning and printing pictures.

I am having trouble printing pictures. I have to work quite awhile before they will print and when and if they do there's lines going through them. I set it for the type of paper used whether plain paper or photo paper. Also when I print something it's getting paler and skips lines. I think it needs to be cleaned and alligned. I have misplaced my manual and don't remember how to do that.

I have never been able to use the scanner. It shows the icon is on the computer but when clicking it it says unavailable.
thank you Xyla

Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Network Error CE-02


There is a Windows Port that is being blocked. First make sure the IP it's scanning to and IP on the machine are the same. disable the firewall. I'm working on narrowing down the port now and will post as soon as I find it.

IP1000 cannot print black ink


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

First off, I'm not too sure if that Printer is a color printer. Its a color scanner yes, but i don't think is a Color Laser Printer! Secondly, can you explain in more detail what kind of scanning and printing issues you have witht the printer? Prints unclear as in blurry or too light? are u having trouble installing the scanner or is it not scanning the images correctly? regards babb
