Question about Epson Stylus CX9400 Photo Printer
Everything is hooked up. I just changed the ink cartridge, I cleanded the nozzle head, and the more I clean the printer nozzle head, ink starts to go lower and lower. Another problem is when I "hit" print, there are some sheets with blurry prints on it and some sheets with blank print on it. What is the problem? Please help me out with this. Thank you.
Every time you do a nozzle clean routine in an inkjet printer, like the Epson CX9400Fax, ink is wasted. When it is $20.00 for a quarter ounce, that is wasteful to your wallet too. The nozzle head cleaning routine flushes your ink from the cartridge through a tube to the nozzle, where it mostens the nearly microscopic holes and flushes hardened ink residue away.
The wasted ink from machines often goes through a rubber gasket or wiper, and into a large, thick felt pad, maybe an inch thick, hidden deep inside, near the bottom of the printer, where it eventually soaks in and dries. In some machines, this happens every time you start the printer, so it makes sense to keep it plugged in. Each cartridge uses some ink, even if you only use it for black and white, so you pay a lot for something you don't even use.
Unfortunately, HP and Epson abuse the trust that users put in them. Word is that HP makes more money on cartridges than it does in printers and plotters. This leads to poor printer design that makes it impossible to refill cartridges, get 3rd party cartridges, or use a printer for black and white and not waste color ink.
