Question about Epson CX8400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Problems first started with print job having bands.. so I cleaned the heads. Still had troubles. Cleaning the heads again emptied the black ink so I changed the black. After that, the black was bleeding into the yellow according to the nozzle check page. where the yellow was supposed to be, it was mostly black. cleaning the heads helped for about one-two pages than it was doing it again. I used a Q tip to clean the area where you put the cartridge around the nozzle that sticks into the cartridge. it still was not printing correctly so i changed the black ink cartridge again. for one or two pages it printed correctly but is back to the same story. Nozzle check shows mostly black where yellow should be.. also black where it should be as well. I can't just keep cleaning the heads after every other page. Any help?
You may try to clean up the sensor, it behind the cross bar is a clear plastic strip clean whit alcohol, good luck!
