Hello !

I know something you can try.
If you look inside the printer for the rubber wheels try to take a file or rasp and rubb the surface to be less shiny .
After that it should work because its just need to get a little rugged/rough. It work on all printers that have somekind of rubber wheels..

Good Luck and
Best Regards

Hi! It may not really work on first try. Try to run cleaning for several times and it may resolve it. If no luck, please remove the ink cartridge and check the ink cartridge seat if there are dried inks. You may need to clear the residue for it may be blocking the ink flow. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Hi there you can download this from my website.
There no easy way the printers are been made this way so you take them to the shop, but if you are handy with your hands and know what you are doing then you will need to take all apart and take out the ink pads inside the printer and clean them up make sure they nice dry when put back in, then you are going to need a program that you can find on the internet it will be called waste reset tools, or your printer will not work even after you done the clean out.

You must reset the chips on your cartridges. To do that you need a re-setter. You can either buy one or go to a refill shop, they usually have them.
The re-setter assigns a new serial number to your cartridges, thus enabling you to print with refilled cartridges. I think that is the only way to bypass your problem.

Download the _free_ "Graphic Image Manipulation Program" from http://www.GIMP.org
and use it, as if it were the very-expensive Adobe Photoshop, to convert colour to grey-scale.

The two clips that swing down and hold the ink cartridges can be easily removed without breaking anything or removing screws. Look at the hinge points and use a screwdriver to gently pry one hinge of each clip out and the clips will simply lift out. But after that there are 2 small screws that hold the print heads in that ink cartridge carriage. Remove them and keep track of them. The white clip positioned in the color ink cartridge bay helps to hold the ribbon cable in place, but once you see what will move in regard to the print head, you can loosen the white clip and the print head should lift up. In this way, conceivably, the CX3200 print head should detach from the ribbon cables (there are 2) and a new one goes in its place. I'm dealing with a friend's CX3200 that the black is not printing and I'm cleaning it out and finding a lot of dried sticky ink. Probably used until dry or refilled the cartridge with the wrong type of black ink.

Restart your computer and power-cycle your printer off and back on.

Make sure the paper tray is not overloaded.

Make sure the paper in the tray firmly pushed into the paper tray towards the printer.

look for anything jamming the print head, then try lubricating the bar the print head runs on. power off then gently move the head left to right so spread the oil. hope this helps

If you have MS Word 2007, by default, the file extension is .docx and it can't be open by previous versions of MS Word unless conversion packs are installed. To make your scanned documents accessible to others, save it using .doc extension. You can do so by following these steps:
  1. Click on file (round button) then Save As
  2. Save your document with compatibility with Microsoft Office '97 to 2003.
  3. The file extension will be .doc and you should be good to go.

Press one of the Menu buttons repeatedly until Head Cleaning appears on the LCD panel, and then press the Color Copy button.

When the On light stops flashing, print a nozzle check pattern to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle.

Press one of the Menu buttons repeatedly until Nozzle Check appears on the LCD panel, and then press the Color Copy button..

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......

I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


This is the only advice I can give you.

The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

yep that is the bad thing about some of these printers. Now you might be able to get some of your money back if you offer to sell it on ebay. However if the printer is not busted then it should work with the new cartridge

Try cleaning the print head: http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/cx32__/cx32__pg.pdf
If that doesn't work, may need to replace the print head altogether. If it's been sitting on a shelf for a while, the ink can easily dry up and clog the jets.
