Follow these guidelines when loading paper:
Note:
The type of paper you choose affects the way your printout
looks, so be sure to select the correct paper for your job. If you
are just making a copy or printing a rough draft of an image, plain
paper is fine. However, for the best results, you’ll want to use
one of Epson’s special ink jet papers designed for your printer.
For example, your photos will look great printed on Premium
Glossy Photo Paper. See “Media” on page 1 for more
information.
❏ Don’t load paper above the arrow on the left edge guide.
Make sure the paper is under the tabs on the left and right
edge guides.
❏ Load the printable side face-up. It’s often brighter or whiter
than the other side.
❏ Always load the short edge first, even when printing in
landscape mode.
5. Slide the left edge guide against the left edge of the paper
(but not too tightly).
❏ Load letterhead or preprinted paper into the printer top
edge first.
❏ If you experience paper feeding problems, try loading fewer
sheets.
❏ If you’re using special paper, check the package for special
loading instructions.

twist it diagonally. You may damage the document cover.
When you are done, replace the document cover by inserting
the tabs back into the slots.
Copying
Using the Epson Stylus CX5800F buttons, you can make

below to check the print head nozzles using the control panel.
Note:
Make sure you selected the Paper Size setting that matches the size
of paper you’ve loaded. If the incoming fax pages are larger than the

Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head
four or five times, turn off the Epson Stylus CX5800F and wait
overnight. This lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the

as described below.
Cleaning the Print Head
Checking the Ink Levels
If your printouts are unexpectedly light or faint, or you notice
light or dark bands across your printout, you may need to
