Question about Epson STYLUS CX3900 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

When ever I replace all of the ink cartirges, all the color ones work fine but the Black does not print well (as if it were running out of ink, or tht the print head is dirty because the print is skips on every word at the center. Tried changing the black cartrige twice and the print still looks as if the center is dirty. Is there a way of cleaning the print head manually?

Poss the black dries faster than the other colors and gets clogged.

I have a all in one color LC61 printer, do all colors have to be filled to print blk only?


Greyscale is color not black only.
You can print in black and it will look grayscale only darker, printers are a pain to work with after a year has gone by, I can expect almost a half hour to print something with my $400 epson because one of the colors is out even though I never printed in the last year a colored page. I take the color cartirges out and they are empty, but I only print a page 2-3 times a year. I use the scanner all the time. Brother and epson have their print heads in the printer not the cartridge so make sure your inks are always have something in it or it will be miricle for the printer to last more than a year. Check colors every other week. One Epson printer only lasted 3 months because I never used it(print head dried up). Never use the set up with tubes running outside printer to small tanks of ink if you only use it occationally.

Black ink wont print, but color works fine


The black cartridge needs replacing it sounds like. On many printers, that is the only way that you get black.

Black and white not printing correctly, color is fine


If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene

Heavy black stripe on back side of every printed page


This is probably due to miss alignment, there is an option of test page which will be scanned to allign the cartridge, if ur's a all in one printer. This test page is printed at the first time and scanned instantly for first time operation.

Thankyou
