Question about Epson Stylus CX5400 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a chance to buy 1 on ebay for 10bucks u think its worth it?

Same as the man was describing after cleaning the heads several times. Several new ink cartridges. Some kind of printer error. I also know it might not have enough memory if he has to many programs.Even my Intel 2gig computer has trouble with 512mg rdram almost not enough with the anti-virus & spyware a printer. Everything to high tech for this ole man.

    Thanks jackboy,
    But I don't think a fairly new printer could would have problems that deep unless maybe in a office. But I'll remember that.

Buying anything on E-bay was probably a mistake. Blocked head are common on well used or neglected Epsons, another problem is waste ink tank overflow. All these thing can be dealt with is you have patience and dont mind getting covering in ink. Suggest you look at www.fixyourownprinter.com for the waste ink tank solution as the instruction varies from modele to model. As for blocked jets - take a look at the pc.

    One more that you can try depending on your location.
    These things are complex and Epson are aware of problems thet can happen
    Here in the UK they have a swap out service for out of warranty devices- whereby for a modest flat fee they simply swap the machine for a refurbished one.
    Take a look at that route - depends where you are living I guess

Is your colour ink come out when you print nozzle? If yes, your printer head is alive. In this setuation you should push some alcohole cleaner through plustic seringe several time. If no, there is a trouble in your printer's main board. replace the main board or repair it by a repair man.
Thank you.

My brother MFC425CN black ink does not work...but the colored inks works perfect, i tried to replace the black catriage and i also tried cleaning it several times but still does not work...


This could be several things, some of which may mean your machine will have to be repaired by a Brother agent (probably cost you more than a new one), and/or it's time to bin it.
However, sometimes it's just because the print head, or the pipes that connect the ink tanks to the print head, have become blocked with dried out ink.
If you search on YouTube, you will find a few videos that show how to clear such blockages - you may not find your exact model number, but many Brother machines use almost identical components to many others so the basic technique will be the same. Also search on Ebay for printer cleaning/head blockage kits - quite a few printers (not just Brother) suffer similar problems and a few businesses have sprung up on EBay that sell kits to help you sort this. They sometimes have links to a video they have produced showing how to use the kit which can give you ideas. Again, your exact model number or even make might not come up but these kits might be adaptable to your machine. Got to be worth a tenner or so before binning it ! Good luck

Cant print


Ink button on? Check status monitor? I think is ink out message. Head cleaning for several time, throw ink too much. If u don't use CISS, after instaled ink tank, just wait for 1 hour before use printer. Ink will flow to head itself.

Bought a used c86 epson off e-bay and it wont


that means that the heads must be replaced or the ink pump is faulty. It is not even worth the repair.
Call the Ebay seller and have your money refunded.

Timing belt sliped


Normally YES, I would have a new belt fitted and try it just in case. I have had several 'interference' motors break a belt and not damage any valves. Its worth taking a chance before running the expense of pulling the heads off for inspection.

Poor printing


yes when you have left your printer in storage the ink tends to dry out, its cheaper to buy a new printer, taking it to a service professional might be costly, more than whats the printer is worth.

you can ask around not very many places do head cleaning. and check on how much, since they will spike you for parts and other stuff.

Not printing in color


Hi-

Chances are the tubes are clog and you need to dismantle the printer to clean it, if you have tried cleaning the heads several times then nothing change. Might as well have it service or buy a new one, call epson customer service- 562 276 4382 or 1300 so that they will offer you the loyalty website and you can get a new epson printer, discounted in price.

Hope this help
