Epson Printer Fix

Thank you so much.  I was messing with my printer for almost 45 minutes using the Epson website and their diagnostic tools before I got the idea to google "epson cx8400 blank pages" And your answer was #1 on google -- after just posting it yesterday.  Your answer had me fixed up in two minutes, and now I'm printing like a champ!  Thanks so much for saving me further frustration and time wasting.  I'm super grateful to you.
Respectfully yours, Silver Persinger
PS. I'm running for US President as a write in candidate.

SOURCE: Epson C88 printer only prints blank pages

See my post about about underhead cleaning. If that makes no difference you will need the countermeasure for the split cap tube. The document about loss of ink on CX series machines is also applicable to C88

SOURCE: Epson CX8400 ink cartridges run out early

Epson gives you a miserable 12 ml of ink. Then it reports empty when there is still 10-15% of the ink left. I saw someone set up a brand new CX8400, print a single 4x6 photo and it said he was out of cyan. I use reusable cartridges from They hold 20 ml, which is 2/3 more ink. The chips automatically reset to full if you take the cartridge out and put it back in, so you get to use every drop. The ink is in a separate container inside the main cartridge. When it's really empty, you pop out the ink tank and pop in a new one. The tanks are under $3 each. I think this is brilliant because it's like refilling only it avoids the risks and mess of refills.

SOURCE: Cannot Print from on Epson CX8400 from Mac OS X Leopard

I could only get my CX8400 to work with Leopard once I manually selected the driver located at /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/EPSON Stylus CX8400.gz

I think that may have appeared after installing a driver downloaded off the web, but I didn't track my steps carefully enough to be certain. I used

I know this is a bit jumbled, but hopefully it helps.

Parts inside your printer are near the end of their service life

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A possible workaround to "end of life" on Epson printers; download, install and run "SSC Service Utility"

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

My epson stylus c 45 does not operate both red and green keeps on blinking

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your describe concerns and considering the age of the unit indicates that the Epson printer has reached its " end of life " (most likely) or there is an internal fault (least likely). Initially, I would suggest to download and install ' SSC Service Utility for Epson Stylus Printers '. Its purpose is to bypass the counters and reset most Epson printers. The reset would force the printer to revert to factory defaults. The printer would be " fooled " into thinking that it is new (again).

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.
