Note:
You cannot print when a cartridge is expended, even if the other
cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before
printing or copying.
If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall
and use the cartridge.
If a cartridge is more than 6 months old, print quality may
decline. If necessary, try cleaning the print head (see page 10).
If printouts still do not look their best, you may need to
replace the cartridge.
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the
ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
Note:
Leave the expended cartridge installed until you have obtained
a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may
dry out.
Scanning
You can use your CX7400 Series to scan a photo or document
and save it as a digital file on your computer. You can even
restore and correct photographs as you scan.
1. Make sure the CX7400 Series is on and the red B ink light
is on but not flashing.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it is expended, run the
Ink Cartridge Replacement utility in the Windows driver (see the
on-screen User’s Guide for details).
The Epson Scan software provides three scanning modes:
❏ Full Auto Mode scans quickly and easily using automatic
settings.
❏ Home Mode previews your image and provides preset
options for scanning.
2. Open the scanner.
❏ Professional Mode previews your image and provides
a full array of tools.
For detailed scanning instructions, see the on-screen
User’s Guide.
3. Press the y Stop button. The print head moves to the
_ position to indicate which cartridge is low or expended.

7/07
Epson Stylus CX7400 Series
If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head
moves to the replacement position on the right. Go to
step 5.
7. Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it
four or five times. Then remove it from the package.
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.
Caution:
Do not move the print head by hand; this may damage the
CX7400 Series. Always press and release the y Stop button to
move it.
4. Press the y Stop button again.
If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the
_ position. Press the y Stop button again to see if more
cartridges are low or expended.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.
If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head
moves to the replacement position on the right.
9. Insert the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and
push it down until it clicks into place.
5. Open the cartridge cover.
10. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the
cartridge cover and press it down until it clicks into place.
6. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge
straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take
the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
11. Close the scanner.
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. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.

12. Press the y Stop button to begin charging the ink. This
takes about 2 minutes. When it’s finished, the P On light
stops flashing and remains on.
Cleaning the Print Head Nozzles
Note:
You cannot clean the print head if an ink cartridge is low or expended.
You must replace the cartridge first (see page 8).
Caution:
Never turn off the CX7400 Series while the P On light is flashing
or you’ll waste ink. If the B ink light flashes, press the
y Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.
1. Load several sheets of plain letter-size paper (see page 4).
2. Hold down the y Stop button for 3 seconds to start the
head cleaning cycle, which lasts about 1 minute. The
P On light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays
on when the cycle is finished.
Adjusting Print Quality
Caution:
Never turn off the CX7400 Series during a cleaning cycle or you
may damage it.
If the print quality declines, you may need to run a utility to
clean or align the print head. You can use the control panel or
software to run these utilities. See the on-screen User’s Guide
for instructions on using software.
3. Run a nozzle check to verify that the print head is clean
(see page 10).
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head
two times, turn off the CX7400 Series and wait at least 6 hours to
let any dried ink soften. Then try printing again.
Checking and Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts become too light, or you see dark or light
bands across them, you may need to clean the print head
nozzles. Cleaning uses ink, so clean the nozzles only if print
quality declines. You can check for clogged nozzles before you
clean them so you don’t clean them unnecessarily.
If you do not use your CX7400 Series often, it is a good idea to
print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print
quality.
Checking the Print Head Nozzles
Aligning the Print Head
1. Load several sheets of plain letter-size paper (see page 4).
If your printouts look grainy or blurry, or you see light or dark
bands across them, you may need to align the print head.
2. Turn off the CX7400 Series.
3. Hold down the y Stop button as you press the P On
button to turn the CX7400 Series back on. Hold down
both buttons until the P On light begins to flash, then
release the buttons.
Note:
Banding may also occur if your print head nozzles need cleaning.
You can align the print head using the control panel or your software.
See the on-screen User’s Guide for instructions on using software.
1. Load several sheets of plain letter-size paper (see page 4).
2. Turn off the CX7400 Series.
3. Hold down the Copies button as you press the
P On button to turn the CX7400 Series back on. Hold
down both buttons until the P On light begins to flash,
then release the buttons.
The alignment sheet prints.
4. Look at pattern #1 and find the patch that is most evenly
printed, with no noticeable streaks or lines.
4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are
gaps in the lines:
5. Press the Copies button until the number for that patch
appears in the Copies window.
6. Press the x Start B&W button.
Nozzles are clean
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for each of the other alignment
patterns.
Nozzles need
cleaning
8. The CX7400 Series will turn off when alignment is
complete.
5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean. If there are gaps
or the pattern is faint, clean the print head.

8. Pack the CX7400 Series in its original box or one of a
similar size using protective material to keep it from moving
inside the box.
Cleaning the CX7400 Series
To keep the CX7400 Series working at its best, you should
clean it several times a year.
9. Keep the CX7400 Series level during transportation to
prevent damage.
Caution:
Do not use a hard brush, benzine, alcohol, or paint thinner to clean
the CX7400 Series or you may damage it. Do not use oil or other
lubricants inside the CX7400 Series or let water get inside it.
10. After transporting the CX7400 Series, remove the tape
securing the ink cartridge holder.
If print quality has declined when you print again in a new
location, clean and align the print head (see page 10).
1. Turn off the CX7400 Series.
2. Unplug the power cable.
3. Remove all the paper.

If you need to ship your CX7400 Series or transport it a long
distance, prepare it for transportation as follows:
1. Turn off the CX7400 Series.
2. Unplug all the connected cables.
3. Remove all the paper.
4. Close the paper support and output tray.
5. Lift up the scanner and check that the ink cartridge holder
is all the way to the right (the home position). If necessary,
turn on the CX7400 Series, then turn it off again.
6. Fasten the ink cartridge holder to the case using tape. Leave
the ink cartridges installed to avoid damaging the printer.
7. Close the scanner.
