Question about Epson Stylus CX5400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
The error light is on with the message:printer error--->see your documentationand call service if necessary, plus i dont have the cd disc to install it would that be the problem??
To the original problem post auther, wckdclrk:
This resolution, the only working one I could find for the generic "Printer Error" message, was posted by FixYa user willyinfcva:
"I downloaded the Epson CX5400 manual from 2manuals.com, and the remedies for the printer error light were plain and fell into 5 categories; print or carriage motor ohms out of spec (not likely), a latch holding the paper eject mechanism not locked down, or one of the sensors for head or paper position not functioning properly. Confident with this new information, I aerodusted both sensors, cleaned a smudge off the CR alignment strip behind the head carriage, and also reseated the head for good luck, as I'd had it out before. I ran a test and ... it worked!"
Your problem details are very sketchy. First you report you have the same problem, yet indicate that your "scanner prints", which is non-sensical and not the same problem. However, taking some shots in the dark, I'll try to best address the details you gave.
Your unit appears to have problems with both the printer and the scanner. Messages related to printing, ink, or ink colors (like Cyan) are in fact a problem with the printer part of the unit. And it sounds like that will be resolved by replacing the Cyan cartridge. If a partial, fuzzy image appears on your screen when scanning, try cleaning the glass window of the scanning bed (regular glass cleaner will do), and then try uninstalling and reinstalling the Epson software and drivers.
