Introduction
After you have set up your Epson Stylus® CX4200 Series or Epson Stylus®
CX4800 Series all-in-one as described on the Start Here sheet, turn here to:
■
Load paper
■
Make a quick copy of a document or photo
■
Print photos stored on a memory card (Epson Stylus CX4800 Series only)
■
Print photos directly from your camera (both the Epson Stylus CX4200 Series
and Epson Stylus CX4800 Series)
■
Get the basic steps for printing from your computer
■
Start scanning a document or photo, including restoring a color photo as you
scan
■
Perform routine maintenance
■
Solve simple problems
This book tells you how to do most of these things without ever turning on your
computer! Of course your Epson Stylus CX can do lots more when you connect it
to your Windows® or Macintosh® computer. For additional instructions, see the
on-screen User’s Guide by selecting the icon for it on your desktop.
Please follow these guidelines as you read your Epson Stylus CX instructions:
Warning:
Warnings must be followed carefully to avoid bodily injury.
Caution:
Cautions must be observed to avoid damage to your equipment.
Note:
Notes contain important information about your Epson Stylus CX.
Tip:
Tips contain hints for better copying, scanning, and printing.
Note:
The illustrations in this guide show the Epson Stylus CX4800 Series all-in-one and
its software, but the instructions are the same for the Epson Stylus CX4200 Series
all-in-one except where noted.
Introduction 3
Loading Paper
Follow the steps here to load paper in your
Epson Stylus CX all-in-one.
1. Open the paper support and output tray,
then slide out the extensions.
2. Flip the feeder guard forward. Then slide
the left edge guide to the left.
3. Insert the paper, printable side up, against the right edge guide. Always load it
short edge first, even for landscape printing.
The printable side is often whiter or brighter than the other side.
Narrow paper
Place paper
beneath the
tabs
4 Loading Paper
You can load up to 100 sheets of plain paper and up to 20 sheets of photo
paper. (See the User’s Guide 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 Premium Glossy Photo
Paper. See page 25 for more information.
4. Slide the left edge guide against the left edge of the paper (but not too tightly).
Then flip the feeder guard back.
5. Make sure the paper thickness lever is set down to the m L position.

10 Copying a Photo or Document
Printing From a Memory Card
(Epson Stylus CX4800 Series
Only)
The Epson Stylus CX4800 Series all-in-one lets you print color photos directly
from your digital camera’s memory card; just insert it into a memory card slot on
the Epson Stylus CX4800 Series and you’re ready to print.
If your digital camera supports DPOF (Digital Print Order Format), you can
pre-select the photos you want to print while the card is still in the camera. Then,
when you insert the card in the Epson Stylus CX4800 Series, it knows which
photos to print and how many copies of each.
See these sections:
■
“Compatible Cards and Image Formats” (below)
■
“Inserting the Card” on page 13
■
“Printing an Index Sheet to Select Photos” on page 14
■
“Printing All Photos or DPOF Photos” on page 17
For instructions on copying memory card files between your Epson Stylus
CX4800 Series and a computer or other device, see the User’s Guide.

Inserting the Card
1. Make sure the Epson Stylus CX4800 Series all-in-one is turned on.
Note:
When you print directly from a memory card, it is best if the Epson Stylus CX4800
Series is not connected to your computer (or your computer should be turned off).
2. Open the memory card door.
3. Make sure the memory card access light is off and that no cards are in any of
the slots. Then insert your card into the correct slot. (See page 12 for details.)

Printing From a Memory Card (Epson Stylus CX4800 Series Only) 13
Note:
You can print only in color when printing directly from a memory card; you cannot print
in black and white.
Caution:
Do not remove the card or turn off the Epson Stylus CX4800 Series while the memory
card access light is flashing; you may lose data on the card.
Printing an Index Sheet to Select Photos
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 mark
the pictures on the index sheet that you want to print, scan the sheet, and let the
Epson Stylus CX4800 Series automatically print the selected photos.
Printing the Index Sheet
1. Make sure your Epson Stylus CX4800 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 13).
4. Press the Memory Card button one or more times until
the Print Index Sheet light comes on.
5. Make sure Plain Paper and Letter are selected.
14 Printing From a Memory Card (Epson Stylus CX4800 Series Only)
6. Press the x Start Color button. The P On light flashes, and the Epson Stylus
CX4800 Series starts printing the index sheet(s). (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.
Now follow the instructions below to select which photos to print.
Selecting Photos on the Index Sheet
1. Once you have printed the index sheet, use a dark pen or pencil to fill in one
of the ovals beneath each photo you want to print to indicate how many
copies you want (1, 2, or 3).
OK:
No
good:
Make sure just one oval 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.
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.
Printing From a Memory Card (Epson Stylus CX4800 Series Only) 15

the top of the sheet is aligned against the left edge of the glass.
3. Close the document cover.
4. Load up to 100 sheets of plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper at a
time (see page 4 for details). You can load more paper later as necessary to

1. Insert the memory card (see page 13).
2. Load up to 100 sheets of plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo paper at a
time (see page 4 for details). You can load more paper later as necessary to

PictBridge light comes on.
Note:

If you select Plain Paper, the photo(s) print with a white

PictBridge light also flashes.) Epson cannot guarantee the compatibility of any camera.
Depending on the Epson Stylus CX settings and your digital camera settings, some

PhotoImpression™—using EPSON Scan. Or you can start EPSON Scan directly
from your computer and save your image to a file.
1. Open the document cover and place your original face-down on the glass, in
the upper left corner. Move your original about 0.04 inch (1 mm) away from
the top and left edges so all of it will be scanned.

Maintaining Your Epson
Stylus CX All-in-One
If you notice a decline in print quality, follow the instructions in this chapter for:
■
“Checking the Print Head Nozzles and Ink” (below)
■
“Cleaning the Print Head” on page 30
■
“Replacing Ink Cartridges” on page 31
Checking the Print Head Nozzles and Ink
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.
1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX.
2. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.
3. Press the B ink and P On buttons together and hold them down for about
3 seconds. The Epson Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern. It also
shows the percentage of ink left in each cartridge:

If the pattern does not look good, try cleaning the print head as described on the
next page.
Note:
You can also check the ink level using Status Monitor 3; see the on-screen
User’s Guide.
Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX All-in-One 29
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 on
page 29 to see if the print head needs cleaning.
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.
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 page 31.
1. Make sure the Epson Stylus CX is on and the B ink light is off.
2. Hold down the B ink button for 3 seconds until the P On light starts
flashing. The Epson Stylus CX runs a head cleaning cycle and the P On light
flashes.
Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX while head cleaning is in progress. You may
damage it.
3. When the P On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check (as described on
page 29) 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.
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head four or five times,
turn off the Epson Stylus CX 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 page 31.
Tip:
If you do not use your Epson Stylus CX often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at
least once a month to maintain good print quality.
30 Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX All-in-One
Replacing Ink Cartridges
When the red B ink light starts flashing, one or more 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
empty. (You cannot print when a cartridge is empty.)
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper from an authorized Epson reseller.
To find the nearest reseller, please call 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766). To
purchase online, visit www.epsonstore.com (U.S. sales only). In Canada, please
call 800-463-7766 for reseller referral. Use these part numbers when you order or

Caution:
Leave the empty cartridge installed until you have obtained a replacement, or the ink
remaining in the print head nozzles may dry out.
We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges. The use of other products may
affect your print quality and could result in printer damage. See www.epson.com for
more cartridge information. Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print
settings, paper type, frequency of use, and temperature. The printer ships with full
cartridges and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer.
1. Make sure the Epson Stylus CX is on.
2. Make sure that the document cover is
closed, then open the scanner.
Caution:
Do not open the scanner when the document
cover is open.
Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX All-in-One 31
3. Press and release the B ink button. The P On and B ink lights flash.
If one of the cartridges is low or empty, the Epson Stylus CX moves that
cartridge to the _ ink out mark. Go to step 4.
If no cartridges are low or empty, the ink cartridge holder moves to the ink
replacement position. Go to step 5.
Note:
Do not hold down the B ink button for more than 3 seconds or the printer will start
to clean the print head.
Caution:
Do not move the print head by hand; this may damage the Epson Stylus CX.
Always press the B ink button to move it.
4. Press the B ink button again.
■
If more than one cartridge is empty or low, the next cartridge moves to
the _ ink out mark.
■
Once the Epson Stylus CX identifies all of the empty or low ink
cartridges, the print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position.
32 Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX All-in-One
5. Open the cartridge cover, then 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.
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.
6. Before you open the new ink cartridge package, shake it four or five times.
Then remove it from the package.
Caution:
Do not remove or tear the label on the cartridge;
otherwise, ink will leak.
Do not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge.
This can damage the ink cartridge.
Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX All-in-One 33
7. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down until it
clicks into place.
8. Replace any other cartridges that need to be replaced.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10. Close the scanner.
34 Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX All-in-One
11. Press the B ink button. The Epson Stylus CX begins charging ink and the
P On light starts flashing. This takes about one minute. When it’s finished,
the P On light stops flashing and remains on, and the B ink light goes out.
Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX while the P On light is flashing or you’ll waste
ink.
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.

Problems and Solutions
Check the solutions below if you’re having trouble using your Epson Stylus CX allin-one.
Copying Problems
■
Make sure your original is positioned in the top left corner of the glass. Place
it 0.04 inch (1 mm) from the edges to avoid cropping.
■
Make sure your paper is loaded short edge first and is positioned against the
right edge guide with the left edge guide against its left side. Don’t load paper
above the arrow mark inside the left edge guide.
Paper Feeding Problems
■
If paper doesn’t feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Flip through the stack to
separate the sheets a little. Then reload the paper against the right edge guide,
and slide the left edge guide against the paper (but not too tightly). Make sure
the paper is not in front of the feeder guard.
■
Do not load too many sheets at once (up to 20 sheets of photo paper and 100
sheets of plain paper). See the User’s Guide for more information.
■
If paper is jammed, the red b Error light flashes. Follow these steps to clear
the jam:
1. Press the x Start Color button to eject the jammed paper. If the jammed
paper is not ejected, go to the next step.
2. If the paper is stuck near the sheet feeder or output tray, gently pull it out.
If the paper is stuck inside the Epson Stylus CX, press the P On button
to turn it off. Open the scanner and remove any paper inside, including
any torn pieces. Do not pull it backward however; this can damage the
sheet feeder. Close the scanner, then turn the Epson Stylus CX back on.
38 Solving Problems
Print Quality Problems
If you have any problems with the copy or print quality, try these solutions:
■
Make sure the document is placed flat against the document table glass and
the Epson Stylus CX is not tilted or placed on an uneven surface.
■
Load the paper printable side up (usually the whiter, brighter, or glossy side).
■
Make sure your paper isn’t damp or curled.
■
Use a support sheet with special paper or load your paper one sheet at a time.
Remove sheets from the output tray so not too many collect at a time.
■
Make sure the type of paper you loaded matches the paper size and paper type
settings on the control panel or in your printer software (see page 25).
■
For the best print quality, use Epson special paper (see page 25) and genuine
Epson ink cartridges (see page 31).
■
Set the paper thickness lever to the m L position for most paper types. If you
are printing on envelopes, set the lever to the ^ H position.
■
If you notice light or dark bands across your printouts or they are too faint,
you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can
deliver ink properly. Run a nozzle check as described on page 29 to see if the
print head needs cleaning.
■
Clean the print head as described on page 30.
■
If you notice jagged vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. See
your User’s Guide for instructions.
■
The ink cartridges may be old or low on ink; see page 31 for instructions on
replacing an ink cartridge.
■
If a dotted line appears in the image, clean the scanner glass with a soft, dry,
lint-free cloth (paper towels are not recommended), or use a small amount of
glass cleaner on a soft cloth, if necessary. Don’t spray glass cleaner directly
on the glass.

■
Place the Epson Stylus CX 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 Epson Stylus CX, 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 locations that are subject to rapid changes in heat or humidity, shocks or
vibrations, or dust.
■
Leave enough room around the Epson Stylus CX for sufficient ventilation. Do not
block or cover openings in the Epson Stylus CX case or insert objects through the
slots.
■
Do not place the Epson Stylus CX near a radiator or heating vent or in direct
sunlight.
■
Place the Epson Stylus CX 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.
■
Make sure the back of the Epson Stylus CX is at least 3.9 inches (10 cm) away from
the wall.
■
Do not open the scanner section while the Epson Stylus CX is copying, printing, or
scanning.
■
Do not spill liquid on the Epson Stylus CX.
■
Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service the
Epson Stylus CX yourself.
Notices 41
■
Unplug the Epson Stylus CX 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.
■
When storing or transporting the Epson Stylus CX, do not tilt it, stand it on its side,
or turn it upside down; otherwise ink may leak from the cartridge.
■
The lamp in this product contains mercury. Dispose of according to local, state, or
federal laws.
Ink Cartridge Safety Instructions
■
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 Epson Stylus CX or touch any cartridges during
printing.
■
Install a new ink cartridge immediately after removing an empty one. Leaving
cartridges uninstalled can dehydrate the print head and may prevent the Epson Stylus
CX from 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 Epson Stylus CX. 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.
