My printer won't print it sat for 6 months we put new ink in and it scans and goes through the actions but doesn't print ink


The problem with printers like Epson is that they cannoy stand without being used for that long. The print head that is largely responsible for print quality is built into the machine and the last ink that passed through 6 months ago is hardened inside. Dry several deep cleanings with nozzle checks inbetween. You may need to send it for manual print head cleaning with a printer technician.

INK DOES NOT FLOW. HOW TO CLEAN INK AREA.


Hi there,

Here is a few steps to clean the print head of your printer.


1. Make sure the CX5000 Series all-in-one is turned on but not printing, and the ink cartridges are not low or expended.


2. Right-click the printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen). Select Head Cleaning.


3. Click Start or Next.
Cleaning takes several seconds. The CX5000 Series runs a head cleaning cycle and the On light flashes.
Caution:
Never turn off the CX5000 Series while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.


4. When the On light stops flashing, make sure paper is loaded in the CX5000 Series, then do the following:
Windows:
Click Print Nozzle Check Pattern. Then click Print.


5. If there are no gaps or lines, click Finish.
If there are still gaps or lines, or the test patterns are faint, click Clean to clean the print head again.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three times, refer to Problems and Solutions. You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight. This lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the print head again.

Tip:
If you do not use your CX5000 Series often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.


Cleaning the Print Head


Hope this initial / info idea helps.

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.

How do I set my epson cx5000 to print in black and white?


Okay I take it its not printing blacking and white with this type of question, there is no true way of setting this to blakc and white as its a automatic thing if your printing in color only check the black and white cart. to see if its despensing first also whatever printing program you use you can tell it not to use color then it will defualt to black and white but you would have to keep doig this for every print job.

Epson styus cx5000


Go into Printers, Properties, Printing Preferences, then Black Ink Only. If you make that the default, it will automatically print black ink with you click on the printer in the toolbar. If you want to print one document in color, click on File, Print, Properties, and set it for color for that one job only. The default of Black Ink should stay the same.

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
