Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

1 Answer

We have a MacBook that we have downloaded the latest drivers from Epson for our CX8400 printer. The printer just repeatedly spits out blank pages when we try to print anything and will not stop until we power the printer down. The printer works great with a Dell desktop PC. We uninstalled all the Epson drivers and reinstalled them again but with the same results.

    Already tried the original Epson CX8400 install CD but that did not work either. We will try your other suggestions later when my daughter gets home from school. I'll let you know how it goes.

    I let my Mac search for the correct driver via the Internet. It only took a minute and printed perfectly! Thank you leethedeuce!

You may want to remove the drivers etc. from the mac and then try adding it through the add printer in the print dialogue box. Here is a thread that has covered this issue that should help you:

Sounds like there is a major issue with their updated drivers. Even going back to the orignal cd should work.
Thanks,

Epson stylus cx8400 won't print web pages


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

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=90342&prodoid=63069506&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows&x=20&y=9

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.

Cannot Print from on Epson CX8400 from Mac OS X Leopard


I could only get my CX8400 to work with Leopard once I manually selected the driver located at /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/EPSON Stylus CX8400.gz

I think that may have appeared after installing a driver downloaded off the web, but I didn't track my steps carefully enough to be certain. I used http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=90342&prodoid=63069506&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh

I know this is a bit jumbled, but hopefully it helps.

Misfeeds and partial printing with CX8400 on Vista Machine


Make sure you are connected to a USB 2.0 port on your computer. The printer does not do so well on a USB 1.1 port.

If you have a desktop, you can add a USB 2.0 adapter card. If you have a notebook you can use a USB 2.0 converter card (PCMCIA or PC Card or CardBus(32bit) or whatever).

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!
