Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are missing, you may need to
clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print
head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
Note: You can also use a printer software utility to clean the print head right from
your computer. Select the ? or Help button on your printer settings window for
instructions running the print head cleaning utility.
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on but not printing, and the
Error light is off. (If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an
ink cartridge; see Replacing an Ink Cartridge for details.)

2. Press the left Menu button until you see Head Cleaning on the LCD screen.
3. Press the Color Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON Stylus CX5400
makes some noise and the On light flashes briefly.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing,
unless the Stylus CX hasn’t moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
4. When the On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check to confirm the print head
nozzles are clean.
Make sure paper is loaded. Press the left Menu button until you see Nozzle
Check on the LCD screen, then press the Color Copy button. The nozzle check
pattern prints.
49
Note: You can also use a printer software utility to print a nozzle check right from
your computer. Select the ? or Help button on your printer settings window for
instructions on running the nozzle check utility.
5. Examine the nozzle check pattern you print. It should look something like this:
Each line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If your printout
looks okay, you’re done.
If you see any gaps in the dot pattern, clean the print head again.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three or four times, check the
solutions in Solving Problems. You can also turn the EPSON Stylus CX5400 off and
wait overnight—this allows any dried ink to soften—and then try cleaning the print
head again.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your EPSON Stylus CX5400 for a long time, the
print quality can decline. It’s a good idea to turn it on at least once a month to
maintain good print quality.
Purchasing Ink Cartridges
Use these EPSON ink cartridges within six months of installing them and before the
expiration date on the package:
50
■
Black ink cartridge: T0321
■
Cyan ink cartridge: T0422
■
Magenta ink cartridge: T0423
■
Yellow ink cartridge: T0424
Caution: To ensure good results, use genuine EPSON ink cartridges and do not
refill them. Other products may cause damage to your EPSON Stylus CX5400 not
covered by EPSON’s warranty.
To get the best prints and copies, use genuine EPSON ink and paper. You can
purchase ink cartridges, paper and accessories from your local retailer. Please call
(800) 463-7766 to locate a retailer near you.

Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Checking the Ink Supply
If the Error light on the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is flashing and you see an ink low or
ink out message on the LCD screen and your computer monitor, you need to replace
one of the cartridges.
When a cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if printouts
don’t look their best. If the quality doesn’t improve after cleaning and aligning the
print head, you can replace the cartridge.
To check your ink supply, do one of the following:
■
Press the left Menu button until you see Ink Levels. This gives you an
approximate percentage of ink remaining in each cartridge. You can also check the
icon on the LCD screen to see an approximate indication of the ink level.
■
Windows: Double-click the
printer icon in the lower right corner of your
screen. If a cartridge is low on ink, you’ll see a message in the window that appears
on your screen.
■
Macintosh:
OS 8.6 to 9.x: Choose File > Print. Click the
ink icon.
51
Menu buttons
OS X: Choose Applications > EPSON Printer Utility > CX5400 > Status

Ink Cartridge Precautions
Warning: Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets
in your eyes, flush them thoroughly with water.
Caution: To avoid damaging the EPSON Stylus CX5400, never move the print
head by hand.
You cannot print if any ink cartridge is empty. Leave the empty cartridge installed
in the EPSON Stylus CX5400 until you have obtained a replacement. Otherwise
the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
52
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start the ink
cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing. The LCD
screen tells you which ink cartridge is low or empty.
2. If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is low on ink, press the left Menu button until
you see Change Cartridge, then press the Color Copy button.
If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is out of ink, press the Color Copy button.
The ink cartridges move to the replacement position.

6. Unwrap the new ink cartridge and lower it into its holder, then press down on the
top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
54
Caution: Don’t touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge; you
may inhibit normal operation and printing.
If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat steps 4 through 6 before
continuing with step 7.
7. Carefully lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The
EPSON Stylus CX5400 begins charging the ink delivery system.
The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus CX5400 makes noise. Charging takes
about 30 seconds. When it’s finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing,
unless the Stylus CX hasn’t moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
Aligning the Print Head
If your printouts look grainy or vertical lines appear jagged, you may need to align the
print head.
Note: You can also use a printer software utility to align the print head right from
your computer. Select the ? or Help button on your printer settings window for
instructions running the print head alignment utility.
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing, and the
Error light is off.
2. Load a stack of plain, letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.
55
3. Press the left Menu button until you see Head Alignment, then press the Color
Copy button to print the first alignment page.
4. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical lines most precisely
printed on top of each other. You may need to use a magnifying glass or loupe.
Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. (In this example, the best
pattern in each row has been circled.)
5. Press the + or – Value buttons to select the number of the best pattern for the first
row, then press the Color Copy button. Repeat this step for the second, third,

Before using your EPSON Stylus CX5400, read and follow these safety instructions:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the Stylus CX5400.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the Stylus CX5400 label.
■
Connect all equipment to properly grounded power outlets. Avoid using outlets
on the same circuit as air control systems or other high-load devices that regularly
switch on and off.
■
Place the Stylus CX5400 near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily
unplugged.
Placez l’imprimante près d’une prise de contacte où la fiche peut être débranchée
facilement.
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.
■
If you use an extension cord with the Stylus CX5400, make sure the total ampere
rating of the devices plugged into the extension cord does not exceed the cord’s
ampere rating. Also, make sure the total ampere rating of all devices plugged into
the wall outlet does not exceed the wall outlet’s ampere rating.
■
Avoid electrical outlets controlled by wall switches or automatic timers.
■
Keep your Stylus CX5400 and computer system away from potential sources of
electromagnetic interference, such as loudspeakers or cordless telephone base
units.
■
Avoid locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or
vibrations, or dust.
■
Leave enough room around the Stylus CX5400 for sufficient ventilation.
■
Do not place the Stylus CX5400 near a radiator or heating vent or in direct
sunlight.
99
■
Place the Stylus CX5400 on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond its base in all
directions. It will not operate properly if it is tilted or at an angle. Leave enough
space in front of the Stylus CX5400 (at least 9 inches) so it doesn’t tip forward
and fall off of the work surface.
■
Turn off and unplug the Stylus CX5400 before cleaning. Clean with a damp
cloth only. Do not spill liquid on it.
■
Always turn the Stylus CX5400 off using the On button. Don’t turn off
the power using a switch on a power strip or unplug the Stylus CX5400 until the
On light is off.
■
Do not block or cover openings in the Stylus CX5400 case or insert objects
through the slots.
■
Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service
the Stylus CX5400 yourself.
■
Unplug the Stylus CX5400 and refer servicing to qualified service personnel
under the following conditions: if the power cord or plug is damaged; if liquid has
entered the product; if the product has been dropped or the case damaged; if the
product does not operate normally or exhibits a distinct change in performance.
Adjust only those controls that are covered by the operating instructions.
■
Before transporting the Stylus CX5400, make sure the print head is capped in the
far right position, the ink cartridges are in place, and the scanner is secured by the
transportation lock.
■
This product includes a lamp component that contains mercury. Please consult
your state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling. Do not put in the
trash.
Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions
100
■
Leave the ink cartridges installed. Removing the cartridges can dehydrate the print
head and may prevent the EPSON Stylus CX5200 from printing.
■
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
■
Be careful when you handle used ink cartridges; there may be ink remaining
around the ink supply port. If ink gets on your skin, wash it off with soap and
water. If it gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
■
Do not put your hand inside the Stylus CX5400 or touch the cartridge during
printing.
■
Do not move the print head by hand; otherwise you may damage the
Stylus CX5400.
■
Install the ink cartridge immediately after you remove it from its package. Leaving
the cartridge unpacked for a long time before use may result in reduced print
quality.
■
Do not use an ink cartridge beyond the date printed on the cartridge package. For
best results, use up the ink cartridges within six months of first installing them.
■
Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place. Store each ink cartridge so that the
bottom of its package faces down.
■
After bringing an ink cartridge inside from a cold storage site, allow it to warm up
at room temperature for at least three hours before using it.
■
Do not remove or tear the label on an ink cartridge; this can cause leakage.
■
Do not dismantle the ink cartridges or try to refill them. This could result in
damage to the print head.
■
Do not touch the green IC chip on the side of the cartridge. This may affect
normal operation and printing.
■
If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt
and dust and store it in the same environment as the Stylus CX5400. Note that
there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but
care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches.
Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area.
LCD Panel Safety Instructions
■
Use only a dry soft cloth to clean the LCD display. Don’t use liquid or chemical
cleaners.
■
If the LCD display is damaged, contact your dealer.
■
If LCD solution gets on your skin, wash it off thoroughly with soap and water. If
it gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
