The most common problem found with the CX is the tubing on the cap asselbly becomes disconnected. There is only one pattern set on this and I had to realign 5 times using the 7 before I got a rasonable alignment. Fourth and hardest, I got a locking curved clamp onto both the clear tube and second one onto the white plastic nipple. Cleaned under the heads, but problem still persisted.

Well, I had the same problem as many of the people did epsob this forum. My first time on the forum and I had not registered, so thanks for getting back to me.

He is the engineer after all. So, here I am two months later after my printer still is not working.

Will I need four syringes if I want to do all four heads at the same time? I know this has gone on a bit, but I wanted to let you know how I got on and thank you for all your time and help. Its almost impossible to get back on I reread your first posted message and can’t really tell what your exact origional problem, actually is. Denny, My original problem appeared to be feint and broken chopped?

The printer has to be disassembled to clean the tube properly.

Laptops by Dan Ackerman Sep 25, I’m epsson, but I cn’t help you with that edge prunter edge printing problem, because thats normally a software related problem, such as a setting in that software and I don’t actually work on the computer related problems.


When you run a “Nozzle Test”, if just some of the printhead nozzles are not printing, then its possible that there may be a partial clog in that printhead assembly.

I moved the cartridge carriage over, them unplugged the printer so it wouldn’t move back, lifted up the mechanism. Several people have posted that they have manuals available for the newer printers, that are not actually available from other normal sources If you clamp on closer to the end, it will flatten the end and prevent attachment.

Took me about 7 tries, but got it.

Hi there, my dads CX print quality is not as good as it used to be, when printing tables from excel the horizontal lines have little niks in them, its not to bad but not he same as it used to be, tryed cleaning the heads, nozel check and re-alinement, it doesn’t solve the problem, anyhow i swaped my dads printer for my new cx because he needs it for work. Well to cut this short I tried just about every combination and this worked: Here is what happened I had a cx and recomended it to numerous customers of mine.

Researchers find way to track ‘untraceable’ 3D-printed guns The 3D-printer leaves a hardware fingerprint. Whenever I try printing a document in black ink, some of the lines print out perfectly fine, some don’t really print out at all, and other lines are only partially there.


You can try it if you want to and see if you can get the printhead nozzles to open up again, but that will only help if they are actually clogged. Try running several sets of “Printhead Cleaning Cycles” and “Nozzle Tests” and see if the problem clears up. It’s of course possible that the Printhead Assembly may simply be clogged or partially clogged, but no way to really know. I did NOT use any inside any of the hoses.

My epson stylus CX has an error message that reads “printer error see your documentation and call service if necessary”. Third of all – go out and buy some coffee filters and Q tips – seriously now – you’re going to need them. There are other cleaning solutions available elsewhere, but they are not as good as the actual Epson Solution for flushing out the cz5200 printhead nozzles, or trying to dissolve possible clogs in those nozzles I had the same problem, and just fixed it, took about 40 minutes.

Looking for a tech bargain real soon? Why in the world can’t we buy a decent printer and not have to spend either the time or money to maintain it? Under the ink tray there is a clear rubber tube that apparently sucks the ink to the roller.
