Follow these guidelines when loading paper:
4. Insert the paper, printable side up, against the right edge
guide and beneath the tabs. (The printed side is whiter or
brighter on some papers.) Always load paper short edge first,
even for landscape printing.
❏ 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.
Place paper beneath the tabs
❏ Always load the short edge first, even when printing in
landscape mode.
❏ 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.
Envelopes
1. Open the paper support and slide out the extensions.
You can load up to 100 sheets of plain paper and up to
20 sheets of photo or matte paper. (See page 6 for capacity
guidelines on other paper types.)
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 Epson Ultra
Premium Photo Paper Glossy (see page 1 for more information).
5. Slide the left edge guide against the left edge of the paper
(but not too tightly).
2. Open the output tray and pull out the extension.
6. Flip the feeder guard back.

4. Close the memory card door. Now you can:
Selecting Photos on the Index Sheet
❏ Print an index sheet so you can select which photos to
print (see the next section)
1. Once you have printed the index sheet, use a dark pen or
pencil to fill in one of the circles beneath each photo you
want to print to indicate how many copies you want (1, 2,
or 3).
❏ Print all the photos on the card (see page 10)
❏ Print photos pre-selected on your camera using DPOF
(see page 10)
When you want to remove the card, make sure the memory
card access light is not flashing, then pull the card straight out
of its slot.

Caution:
Do not remove the card or turn off the CX5000 Series while the
memory card access light is flashing; you may lose data on the
card.
No
good:
Make sure just one circle is filled in for each selected photo
and mark the sheet carefully; once it has been scanned you
will not be able to change your selections.
Printing an Index Sheet
You can print an index sheet (which is like a photographer’s
contact or proof sheet) to see small “thumbnail” images of all
the pictures on your card. Then you can mark the pictures on
the index sheet that you want to print, scan the sheet, and let
the CX5000 Series automatically print the selected photos.
Note:
If you want one copy of all the photos on the index sheet, fill in
the ALL oval at the top of the page.
2. Place the index sheet face-down on the glass, in the upper
left corner, so that the top of the sheet is aligned against the
left edge of the glass.
1. Make sure your CX5000 Series is not connected to your
computer (or your computer is turned off).
2. Load several sheets of letter-size, plain paper. (Use only
letter-size paper to print the index sheet.) Up to 30 images
are printed on each page, so if there are more than 30
photos on the memory card, you’ll need enough sheets for
all the index pages to be printed.
3. Insert the memory card if it is not already
in the slot (see page 8).
4. Press the Memory Card button one or
more times until the Print Index Sheet
light comes on.
3. Close the document cover.
5. Make sure Plain Paper and Letter are
selected.
4. Load up to 100 sheets of plain paper or up to 20 sheets of
photo or matte paper at a time (see page 4 for details). You
can load more paper later as necessary to print all your
selected photos.
6. Press the x Start Color button. The On
light flashes, and the CX5000 Series starts
printing the index sheets. (This may take a
few minutes.)
For multiple index sheets, the pages
containing the most recent images are
printed first. If you want to cancel printing
more sheets, press the y Stop button.
Note:
Make sure the triangle mark on the upper left corner of the index
sheet is printed completely so the CX5000 Series can scan it
correctly.
Now follow the instructions in the next section to select
photos and print.

photo paper at a time (see page 4 for details). You can load
more paper later as necessary to print all your photos.
3. Insert the memory card (see page 8).
4. Press the Memory Card button until
the Print All/PictBridge light comes on.

You see the EPSON Scan standby window:
Scanning
You can use your CX5000 Series to scan a photo or document
and save it on your computer or other device, or to fax or email it to someone else.
You can even automatically restore faded color photographs as
you scan (see page 12 for details).
The EPSON Scan software provides three scanning modes for
progressive levels of control over your scanned image:
❏ Full Auto Mode scans quickly and easily using automatic
settings.
❏ Home Mode previews your image and provides automatic
image adjustments, cropping tools, and preset options for
various types of scans.
4. If the Mode setting in the upper right corner is set to Full
Auto Mode, click the Scan button.
❏ Professional Mode previews your image and lets you
manually configure your scan settings with a full array of
tools.
Note:
If you want to automatically restore a color photo as you scan,
click the Customize button (see the next section for
instructions).
Scanning Directly From EPSON Scan
You can scan from any TWAIN-compliant application—such
as ArcSoft PhotoImpression™—using EPSON Scan. Or you
can start EPSON Scan directly from your computer and save
your image to a file.
If you are in Home or Professional Mode, you see a
different EPSON Scan settings window. You can change
the mode using the Mode selector in the upper right corner.

3. When the EPSON Scan window appears, do one of the
following, depending on the currently selected scan mode:
❏ Home or Professional Mode: go to step 4.
If your printouts are faint or have gaps in them, some of the
nozzles in the print head may be clogged or ink may be
running low in one or more of the ink cartridges. Follow the
steps below to check the print head nozzles and remaining ink
levels using the control panel.
❏ Full Auto Mode: click the Customize button, click the

Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are unexpectedly light or faint, or you notice
light or dark bands across your printout, you may need to
clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can
deliver ink properly. Run a nozzle check (as described above)
to see if the print head needs cleaning.
❏ Professional Mode: Scroll down to the Adjustments
area and click the Color Restoration checkbox.

Checking the Ink Supply
Note:
Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines and the
nozzle check indicates that the print head needs to be cleaned.
To check your ink supply, do the following:
❏ Windows: Double-click the
icon on your taskbar (in the
lower right corner of your screen). You see a window like
the following:
If the red B ink light comes on or flashes, you cannot clean the print
head. In this case, replace the appropriate ink cartridge first (see the
next section).
1. Make sure the CX5000 Series is on and the B ink light is
off.
2. Hold down the B ink button for 3 seconds until the On
light starts flashing. The CX5000 Series runs a head
cleaning cycle and the On light flashes.
Caution:
Never turn off the CX5000 Series while head cleaning is in
progress. You may damage it.
3. When the On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check to
verify that the print head is clean.
4. If there are still gaps or lines, or the test patterns are faint,
run another cleaning cycle and check the nozzles again.
❏ Macintosh OS X: Open the Applications folder and select
EPSON Printer Utility. Select CX5000 Series in the
printer list, click OK, and select EPSON Status Monitor.
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head
three times, turn off the CX5000 Series and wait overnight. This
lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the print head again. If
quality still does not improve, one of the ink cartridges may be
old or damaged and needs to be replaced (see the next section).
You see a window like this:
Tip:
If you do not use your CX5000 Series often, it is a good idea
to print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good
print quality.

about it.
Replacing Ink Cartridges
❏ When the red B ink light flashes, one or more ink cartridges
are low on ink.
❏ When the red B ink light stays on, you need to replace the
cartridge(s).
You’ll also see a message on your screen when you print telling
you which cartridge is low or expended. (You cannot print
when a cartridge is expended.)
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin.
Once you start replacing a cartridge, you must complete all
the steps in one session.
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 even if it is not low.
Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
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 CX5000 Series or touch any
cartridges during printing.

If no cartridges are low or expended, the ink cartridge
holder moves to the ink replacement position. Go to step 5.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the
ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Install a new ink cartridge immediately after removing an expended
one. Leaving cartridges uninstalled can dehydrate the print head
and may prevent the CX5000 Series from printing.
Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained a
replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry
out. To ensure good results, use genuine Epson ink cartridges and
do not refill them. Other products may cause damage to your
CX5000 Series not covered by Epson’s warranty.
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
CX5000 Series. 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.
Caution:
Do not move the print head by hand; this may damage the
CX5000 Series. Always press the B ink button to move it.
4. Press the B ink button again.
If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall
and use the cartridge.
❏ If more than one cartridge is low or expended, the next
cartridge moves to the _ ink out mark.
1. Make sure the CX5000 Series is on.
❏ Once the CX5000 Series has identified all of the low or
expended ink cartridges, the print head moves to the ink
cartridge replacement position.
2. Make sure that the document cover is closed, then open the
scanner.
5. Open the cartridge cover.
Caution:
Do not open the scanner when the document cover is open.
3. Press and release the B ink button. The On and B ink lights
flash.
Note:
Do not hold down the B ink button for more than 3 seconds or
the printer will start to clean the print head.
If one of the cartridges is low or expended, the CX5000
Series moves that cartridge to the _ ink out mark. Go to
step 4.

6. Squeeze the tab at the back of the cartridge and lift it
straight out. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used
cartridge apart or try to refill it.
9. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and
push it down until it clicks into place.
10. Replace any other cartridges that need to be replaced.
Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and
water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with
water.
11. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into
place.
7. Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it
four or five times. Then remove it from the package.
12. Close the scanner.
Caution:
Do not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge. This can
damage the ink cartridge.
8. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink
cartridge.
13. Press the B ink button. The CX5000 Series begins charging
ink and the On light starts flashing. This takes about one
minute. When it’s finished, the On light stops flashing and
remains on, and the B ink light goes out.
Caution:
If you do not remove the yellow tape before installing the ink
cartridge, print quality may decline or you may not be able to
print.
Caution:
Never turn off the CX5000 Series while the On light is flashing or
you’ll waste ink.
Do not remove any other seals from the cartridges.
Note:
If the B ink light stays on (not flashing), the ink cartridge may not
be installed correctly. Press the B ink button again and reinstall
the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.
