Question about Epson Stylus Sx445w Inkjet Print Scan 5760 X 1400 Dpi Print 33 P
Posted by Anonymous on
What you have I highly suspect is a highly clogged print head. Even if you continue to clean your print head you will use ink to do it, so you will be spending a lot of ink and trust me it wont fix the problem. I have two epsons 1400 and had the same problem and used cleaning solutions but at the end it helped but did not fix the problem.
So at the I decided to use a cleaning solution that comes in cartridges specific for your printer. Its name is UNBLOCK UNCLOG CARTRIDGES, Its seller in E-bay is Sy1507. It worked. but for example it took me around three days. I printed a job and let it sit for a couple of hours until the page printed all white. After the page prints all white then you change the cartridges with ink and do a test print and if prints right, do a print job, You will be amazed at the results. Good Luck.

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. .
IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.
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.

Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.
