Question about Epson Stylus CX4800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Says it is out of paper...?

My printer will bring down the piece of paper a little of the ways and then I can hear the ink cartridge moving as if it is printing, but the paper is never brought down far enough to be printed on, and after a few seconds it says it is out of paper when it is not!

Does this happen when you use the copy function of the printer? If it does, try to check if there are any objects stuck in the rollers or if there are any obstructions inside the printer that may cause a paper jam.

If if doesnt happen when you do the copy function, it may be driver related. What is the operating system of your computer? You may have to uninstall/reinstall the drivers.

Printing blank pages


Hi Wendy,

This is known issue with Canon printers. Try the steps below.

Instructions
    • 1

      Remove all of the paper from the paper tray and slide the paper guides all the way to the side. Examine the paper for any crumpled or torn pieces, then reload the tray. Make sure the guides fit snugly against the sides of the paper. If the guides are too loose, the paper can feed into the iP1600 skewed and cause a paper jam. If the guides are too tight it can cause the printer to grab more than one piece of paper.

    • 2

      Open the front of the printer and wait for the print cartridges to move to the center. Do not move the cartridges by hand--this could damage the printer and void your warranty.


      • 3

        Pull the cartridges slightly toward you and lift them free of the printer. Set the cartridges aside.

      • 4

        Wipe the interior of the printer with a soft cloth to remove any ink residue and paper dust. The Pixma iP1600 has a tendency to accumulate a lot of paper dust, especially during periods of heavy use. Cleaning the printer periodically is the best way to avoid problems.

      • 5

        Dip a cotton swab in warm water and carefully clean the bottom of each print cartridge. The print cartridges in the iP1600 printer also tend to accumulate paper dust. In addition the print nozzles can become clogged with ink residue, resulting in poor print quality and shortening the life of the cartridges. Continue wiping the cartridges until all ink residue and paper dust have been removed.

    The printer shows error code 5100 I think it has


    Hi You can Try 2 things.

    ERROR 5100 means that there is some foreign object blocking your cartridges carriage that disables it from moving. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

    First step, remove the ink cartridge, and turn the printer upside down and gently shake it, see if anything comes out.

    If nothing goes, or you can't hear anything rattling around, get a piece of cardstock paper (60lb or heavier) and gently push this through the printer, to see if it will help push out what might be stuck in there

    Next try.

    It may be a piece of paper or a scotch tape or a staple wire.
    Solution 1:
    Clean the timing strip.

    Solution 2:
    The purge cap (the white sliding mechanism that the print head parks to when it's not in use) may be not lubricated well enough .

    Lubricate the sliders with some white grease (don't get it on the small wipers or the black caps); this repair probably require to remove the right panel off of the printer to gain access to the purge mechanism.

    Good Luck.

    Ok there
    You may not see a paper jam.
    This may work for you, it has worked for many here I given this advice so gave it a try it could work for you. Generally when this happens, something has fallen into the printer, or a piece of paper has been jammed in there.

    And gave the rode that the ink slides on a good clean and maybe a bit oil on cloth and wipe the rod with it.
