Use the cleaning option that is available in the Epson driver utility . Not the head cleaning one but the paper rollers option

Espon cx5000 printing problem


Try to reinstall your printer.

Check if you have installed the ink cartridge properly.

Clean your print head.

Make sure you are installing a original Epson ink cartridge and not just a refill ink.

Epson CX5000 Paper will not load. Tries to but says paper jam even when there is no paper jammed. Blank pages will go through during reset but not otherwise.


Most of our printers pull the paper down on one side slightly faster than the other. The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.
If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Finally, turn the printer upside down and carefully shake it for 10 to 20 seconds to see if something falls out of the paper feed path. Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print again.
If it still fails to feed the paper correctly, please reply with the following information:
What type and brand of paper were you using? Have you ever used this type or brand of paper before and if so what were the results? Once we have this information we will try to fix the unit through email support.

Epson cx5000 all in one


Work around solution is to trim paper to 8.25 x 11 inches and  setup a 8.25 x 11 custom size and then specify it each time you print. You probably can get by using the 8.5 x 11 setting on 8.25 paper but do not use borderless printing. Good luck on a very irritating problem.

Epson Stylus CX5000 blurry or smudged printing


epson uses pigmented ink and compatibles use dyes and thus if the paper is not of good quality then you can have this problem.

do the following

change the paper and try.

As there will be ink in the head and the ink feed tubes , print some 10 -15 copies of all color prints so that the original ink starts to get into the head and then the paper.

this should solve your problem

Also use your printer every 2 -3 days if you dont have any prints then give a noozle check and then switch off the printer. This will avoid the printer from doing a head clean very time you switch on the printer and also the ink will give you more output as there is less amount of head cleaning

bye

Epson Stylus cx5000 - no power


If you have already tried different, USB cable, different power cable, different USB port you may even go as far as trying it on a different computer and if for any unfortunate circumstance you're still experiencing the same thing chance are its already a broken fuse or broken board on printer. Unfortunately this is a non-user replaceable part. I suggest that you contact Epson support if you printer is still under warranty from the date of purchase they may send you a replacement (brand new or refurbished) otherwise they'll be referring you to a service center in you area.

Paper jam possibly due to lego piece


Try opening the ink cartridge load slot. Look inside and see if the lego piece is there. If it is, try and pull it out with tweezers.

You could also try unplugging the printer and turning it upside down. DON'T SHAKE IT but the lego piece may fall out when you turn it over.

Other than that, there's not much you can do.

Paper will not feed


> Epson replaced the printer.

I think that you have been "unlucky" to get a replacement-printer with the same problem as the first printer. Get them to replace it, again.

Check that there is nothing "extra" inserted into the printer to stabilize the moveable parts during "shipping" -- such "padding" must be removed before using the printer.
