Usually copiers use toners to transfer images from one document to the other. Most copy problems are as a result of a low level in the toner in the system or the toner being unevenly distributed in the system. When the toner is more than expected in one part it brings about bands and when it is just sufficient the print comes out just as it is supposed to finally when it is not enough in one part the prints come out blurry..
All three symptoms can be seen in your copied documents. Regardless of the integrated nature of the unit the document printing goes through different procedures thats why the printing has no problem and copying is affected.
Simply get the toner pack replaced and the problem will be sorted out.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I suggest you clean the flat bed scanner glass using a lint clothe and windex. Examine closely the glass, remove dirt, stained or dried ink.
That should fix it.

Make sure you are using a compatible paper type and that the Media Type setting matches the paper you loaded. Let the driver automatically set the print settings for the paper type. Verify that the printable side of the paper is face up in the sheet feeder. It's usually whiter or shinier.
If you see banding when you print, but not when you copy, try using Automatic mode. Make sure you're not using the Maximum Printable Area setting. Banding may occur in the expanded area.
Check the ink levels to make sure that you're not low on ink. If your ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it.
Run a nozzle check to confirm the print head nozzles are clean. Make sure paper is loaded, press a Menu button until you see Nozzle Check on the LCD screen, and press the Color Copy button. The nozzle check pattern prints.
If the pattern has any gaps as shown below, follow these steps to clean the print head.
1. Make sure the EPSON printer is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off. (If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.)
2.Press a Menu button until you see Head Cleaning on the LCD screen.
3. Press the Color Copy button,Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the printer makes some noise and the On light flashes briefly.
Caution: Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing, unless the printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
If you don't see any improvement after cleaning three or four times, check the solutions in the Problems and Solutions section of your printer basics manual. You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight - this allows any dried ink to soften - and then try cleaning the print head again.
Caution: When you don t turn on your printer for a long time, the print quality can decline. It s a good idea to turn on your printer at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

Run a Printer Check
Run a printer check to determine whether the problem comes from the Epson Stylus CX itself or some other source.
Make sure both the Epson Stylus CX and computer are turned off. Then disconnect the USB cable from the Epson Stylus CX.
Make sure letter-size plain paper is loaded in the Epson Stylus CX.
Press the ink and On buttons together and hold them down for about 5 seconds. The Epson Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern. It also shows the percentage of ink left in each cartridge:
Turn off the Epson Stylus CX after it prints the test page. Then reconnect the USB cable and turn on the Epson Stylus CX and computer.
??¦ If the test page prints correctly, the problem probably lies in your software settings, the USB cable, or your computer. It's also possible that your software may not be installed correctly. You should check to see if you have the most current driver for your printer and operating system. Updated drivers and utilities can be downloaded here. Use your Start Here sheet for instructions on reinstalling the Epson Stylus CX software.
??¦ If the test page doesn't print correctly, you may have a problem with the Epson Stylus CX. Try the suggestions in the Problems and Solutions section of your User Guide. As you seem to only have problems when copying I would suggest you check the the default settings for all windows programs as there may be different setting for the copy program, i.e. paper size..
When you change the printer settings within a program, they apply only to that program. If you want to change the default printer settings for all your programs, follow these steps:
Right-click the printer icon in the lower right corner of your screen (taskbar) or open from the printer menu.
Select Printer Settings.
Select the default settings you want for all your applications, then click OK.
You can still change the printer settings in your individual programs, when necessary. They will override the Windows default settings until the next time you turn on or reset your computer.
Trust this is helpful.
