The conversation did not go well! Are the heads just screwed up? Until that chip is reset, it will not work in your printer. However, I’ve decided to keep the printer for black and white photo copying only, which means it can be disconnected from my PC, any ideas how I can get over the problem of the Yellow, Cyan and Magenta cartridges running out the result of head cleaning routines being carried out? I think Epson should re-think the policy of how they treat their life-long customers amd show a little more respect. Is your experience that this issue is also related to the tubes? I am now happy as can be over this issue, it’s been like this for a few months!!

Epson Stylus CX5400 printing problem

I’ve only used Epson cartridges. I checked the tube, and it was connected just fine. Maybe I hooked something up wrong.

I am so frustrated right now.


The information in a forum like this is very valuable, but it would be much more useful if it could all be pulled epsoj in one place, so that all the relevant instructions could be brought together if only by html links to read more like a page from a well-written technical book for the layman, instead of a bunch of bread crumbs leading to disparate clues that, when assembled together, form the solution to the puzzle.

Of course I did. I am now happy as can be over this issue, it’s been like this for a few months!! We checked that the tapes were firmly attached and noted the caution about reconnecting them.


Then I apparently used an entire set of cartridges trying to run multiple head cleanings on several different days.

If not, where is the damn thing? It must have been a design mistake because that shouldn’t come loose like that. I spent an inordinate amount of time and money with these clowns to no avail. I own a CX with the tube problem. I think Epson should re-think the policy of how they treat their life-long customers amd show a little more respect.

I have a slightly different problem – CX and have read all of above – my tube is attached – I was doing alot of printing incl. I didnt try to replace the catrages yet, as they were brand new and had worked fien before. And thank you, anonymous, for pointing me in the right direction!

It includes a syringe and some epson print head cleaning solution, which is designed to dissolve most clogs, especially if you were using epson inks. I think there might be an easier way than disassembling my whole printer anyway. Anyone seen “Office Space” where the guys take their copier out to the field? Congratulations to anyone who manages to connect the tube to the tip, but I’m at a point where I don’t want to invest any more time into this boondoogle of a project.

A friend had an Epson Stylus Color which he was having problems with, he emailed this to me which epsln how deceitful Epson can be: After that, I managed to stick the rubber hose back onto the black, plastic tip from where it came. It’s the troubleshooting group that I really do not care for. The Blue is full of streaks and I can barely get any red or yellow out.


You can see 540000 they can get clogged so easily, or even why the nozzles can be so easily damaged. Hi I have the same problem see below with my Epson CX, did you ever find a solution?

I think the printer had been sitting unused for a while. I love this printer, BUT it is strarting to seem like it may be time to change it up in the household. So Epdon rang him next day and he faxed the article to me.

Hello I have one question. And the connection was complete! I followed this link http: Show only see all Show only. I have a CX as well.

I bet you guessed it The nozzles inside the print head assembly can be easily damaged by using to much force on the plunger of the syringe.
