Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

1 Answer

I can't get my MacBook to work with my Epson Stylus cx8400 multifunction printer. The printer works okay with a Dell computer but not with the MacBook. When I tell it to print, the printer just repeatedly shoots out blank pages until I turn the power off. The CD I loaded into the MacBook says it is compatible with Apple Macintosh.

    I downloaded the new driver and now the printer does not just spit out blank pages but prints garbage instead of the text I sent to the printer. It is made up of strange symbols and regular letters but does not look anything like what was sent to the printer. I would send you an example but FixYa does not seem to have any way to send attachments to you.

    We did as you instructed and the printer just spits out blank pages until we power the printer off.

    I sent the following response a few days ago but I am not sure you saw it. Here it is again:

    I let my Mac search for the correct driver via the Internet. It only took a minute and printed perfectly! Thanks for your help, Dsandles.

I have an epson cx8400 and i replaced the black ink cartridge but theres an error message saying that i need to replace other ink coartridges. I just want to print in black, how do i bypass the error...


hello

i have this link below that gives you allinformation about your Epson printer. specifically the manual , required for review to address the issue with the ink cartridge error.

Run a Printer Check A printer check will help you determine if the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating properly. 1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series and your computer, if connected. 2. Disconnect any connected USB cables. 3. Load plain paper in the sheet feeder. 4. Press Setup. 5. Select Maintenance and press OK. 6. Select Nozzle Check and press OK. 7. Press cx7400_cx8400_ug.1.109.1.jpg Start. 8. The Epson Stylus CX8400 Series begins printing the nozzle check pattern. • If the page prints, your Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating. Your problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections. Check for additional solutions or re-install your software. If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head. • If the page does not print, the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series may have a problem. Check for additional solutions. If they don't work, contact Epson.

I lost my cdrom software to my epson stylus cx8400


go to epson website. click on support, look for drivers and downloads. You need the driver at very least but they may offer additional software to download that ordinarily would be on the CD. Unplug printer, install driver first, reboot and plug in printer or just follow the msi instructions.

Epson stylus cx8400 won't print web pages


There are 6 downloads for your printer, 5 are software and one is the driver.

The help is free because we are all users like you who hare or knowledge sometimes learned the hard way.

Now disconnect the printer and go to printers and faxes and uninstall/delete it.
Go to add/remove programs and uninstall all epson programs.

Install the driver and connect the printer when told to by install prog.

Install other epson software.

Can't print to Epson CX8400


I had the exact same problem with the endless blank pages "printing" out.  I have a MacBook Air with OSX 10.5.6.
Before I got a chance to try and delete and reinstall all the drivers all over again, my phone call was answered by a very helpful lady from Epson's support line US: 562-276-4382.                           
Here's how easy it was to fix: Go into Apple System Preferences, click Printer & Fax. HOLD CONTROL while clicking on the printer on the left side of the screen.  When you HOLD CONTROL, it allows you to choose the option to "Reset Printers".  
Click "Reset Printers", and you will see them all disappear.  Simply plug in your CX8400 and click the plus button to add new printer.  It will search for the driver for you if you have an internet connection.  It worked for me on the first try and took only about 2 minutes total!!!!
I'd wasted so much time installing drivers and screwing with the printer before this.  Save your time for things that make you happy!  Share help when you can!
