Introduction
After you have set up your Epson Stylus® CX5000 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
■
Print photos directly from your camera
■
Get the basic steps for printing from your computer
■
Scan 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 CX5000 Series can do a lot 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 CX5000 Series 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 CX5000 Series.
Tip:
Tips contain hints for better copying, scanning, and printing.

Loading Paper
Follow the steps here to load paper in your Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one.
1. Open the paper support and slide out the extensions.
2. Open the output tray and pull out the extension.
3. Flip the feeder guard forward.
Loading Paper 5
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.
Place paper beneath the tabs
You can load up to 100 sheets of plain paper and up to 20 sheets of photo or
matte 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 Photo Paper
Glossy (see page 26 for more information).
5. Slide the left edge guide against the left edge of the paper (but not too tightly).
6. Flip the feeder guard back.
6 Loading Paper

Printing From a Memory Card
The Epson Stylus CX5000 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 CX5000 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 CX5000 Series, it knows which photos to print
and how many copies of each.
See these sections:
■
“Compatible Cards and Image Formats” (see below)
■
“Inserting the Card” on page 14
■
“Printing an Index Sheet to Select Photos” on page 15
■
“Printing All Photos or DPOF Photos” on page 17
For instructions on copying memory card files between your CX5000 Series and a
computer or other device, see the User’s Guide.

Inserting the Card
1. Make sure the Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one is turned on.
Note:
When you print directly from a memory card, it is best if the CX5000 Series is not
connected to your computer (or your computer should be turned off). If you see a
message on your computer screen when you insert a card in the CX5000 Series,
just cancel the operation and close the screen.
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 13 for details).
The memory card access light flashes and then stays on.
Insert just one card at a time (it won’t go in all the way)

4. Close the memory card door. Now you can:
■

■
Print all the photos on the card (see page 17)
■
Print photos pre-selected on your camera using DPOF (see page 17)
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.
14 Printing From a Memory 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 can
mark the pictures on the index sheet that you want to print, scan the sheet, and let
the Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one automatically print the selected photos.
Printing the Index Sheet
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 14).
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.
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 which photos to print.
Printing an Index Sheet to Select Photos 15
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 circles 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 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.
Note:
If you want one copy of all the photos on the index sheet, fill in the ALL circle 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.
3. Close the document cover.
4. Load up to 100 sheets of plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo or matte
paper at a time (see page 5 for details). You can load more paper later as
necessary to print all your selected photos.
5. Make sure the Print From Index Sheet light is on.
16 Printing From a Memory Card
6. Select Plain Paper or Photo Paper (whichever you loaded). If you select
Plain Paper, your photos print with a white border. If you select
Photo Paper, your photos print borderless, to the edge of the paper.
7. Select Letter, 4"x6", or 5"x7" for the paper size.
8. Press the x Start Color button to start printing.
Note:
If you need to stop printing, press the y Stop button.
Printing All Photos or DPOF Photos
Follow the steps below to print one copy of each photo on the card or to print
only those photos that were pre-selected with your camera’s DPOF (Digital Print
Order Format) feature.
1. Make sure your Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one is not connected to
your computer (or your computer is turned off ).
2. Load up to 100 sheets of plain paper or up to 20 sheets of photo or matte
paper at a time (see page 5). You can load more paper later as necessary to
print all your photos.
3. Insert the memory card (see page 14).
4. Press the Memory Card button until the Print All/PictBridge light comes
on.
Note:
If the memory card does not contain DPOF information, one copy of all the photos
on the card will be printed.
5. Select Plain Paper or Photo Paper (whichever you loaded). If you select
Plain Paper, the photos print with a white border. If you select Photo Paper,
the photos print borderless, to the edge of the paper.
6. Select Letter, 4"x6", or 5"x7" for the paper size.
7. Press the x Start Color button to start printing.
Note:
If you need to stop printing, press the y Stop button.
Printing All Photos or DPOF Photos 17
Printing From a Digital
Camera
If your camera is PictBridge- or USB DIRECT-PRINT™-compatible, you can
print your JPEG photos by connecting your digital camera directly to your Epson
Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one. Your photos must be sized from 80 × 80 pixels to

9. Select the photos you want to print with your camera. Then adjust any
necessary settings and print your photo as explained in your camera manual.
Note:
If your camera is not supported, a flashing P appears in the Copies window, and the
b Error light and Print All/PictBridge lights flash. Epson cannot guarantee the
compatibility of any camera.
Depending on the CX5000 Series settings and your digital camera settings, some
combinations of paper type, size, and layout may not be supported. In addition,
some of your digital camera settings may not be reflected in the printed output.

Scanning a Photo or Document
You can use your Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one to scan a photo or
document and save it on your computer or other device, or to fax or e-mail it to
someone else.
You can even automatically restore faded color photographs as you scan (see
page 31 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.
■
Professional Mode previews your image and lets you manually configure
your scan settings with a full array of tools.
Basic Scanning
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.
1. Open the document cover and place your original face-down on the glass, in
the upper left corner.

Restoring Color in Faded Photos 31
Maintaining Your CX5000
Series All-in-One
If you notice a decline in print quality, follow the instructions in this chapter for:
■
“Checking the Print Head Nozzles” (see below)
■
“Cleaning the Print Head” on page 33
■
“Checking the Ink Cartridge Status” on page 34
■
“Replacing Ink Cartridges” on page 35
Checking the Print Head Nozzles
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 using the control
panel.
1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one.
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 CX5000 Series turns on and prints a test pattern.
Print head
nozzles are clean:
Print head needs
to be cleaned:
If the pattern does not look good, try cleaning the print head as described on the
next page.
32 Maintaining Your CX5000 Series All-in-One
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 32 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 35).
1. Make sure the Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one 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 (as described on
page 32) 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 times, turn off the
CX5000 Series and wait at least six hours. 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 35).
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.
Cleaning the Print Head 33
Checking the Ink Cartridge Status
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
expended. (You cannot print when a cartridge is expended.)
Tip:
If a cartridge is more than six months old, print quality may decline. If necessary, try
cleaning the print head (see page 33). If printouts still do not look their best, you may
need to replace the cartridge.
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper from an Epson authorized reseller.
To find the nearest reseller, call 800-GO-EPSON (800-463-7766). Or you can
purchase online at www.epsonstore.com (U.S. sales) or www.epson.ca (Canadian
sales).

34 Maintaining Your CX5000 Series All-in-One
Replacing 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.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability.
1. Make sure the Epson Stylus CX5000 Series all-in-one 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.
3. Press and release the B ink button. The P On and B ink lights flash.
If one of the cartridges is low or expended, the CX5000 Series moves that
cartridge to the _ expended ink mark. Go to step 4.
If no cartridges are low or expended, the ink cartridge holder moves to the ink
replacement position. Go to step 4.
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 CX5000 Series. Always
press the B ink button to move it.
Replacing Ink Cartridges 35
4. Press the B ink button again.
■
If more than one cartridge is low or expended, the next cartridge moves to
the _ expended ink mark.
■
Once the CX5000 Series identifies all of the low or expended ink
cartridges, the print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover.
Caution:
Never attempt to open the cartridge cover when the print head is moving. Wait
until the cartridges have moved to the replacement position.
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.
36 Maintaining Your CX5000 Series All-in-One
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.
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:
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:
Do not remove any other seals from the cartridges.
Replacing Ink Cartridges 37
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.
11. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
12. Close the scanner.
38 Maintaining Your CX5000 Series All-in-One
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:
Never turn off the CX5000 Series while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink.
If you removed a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the
cartridge.
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.
If you replaced a cartridge while copying a document or photo, cancel printing and
make sure your original is still placed correctly on the document table. Then copy
your original again.

Check the solutions below if you’re having trouble using your Epson Stylus
CX5000 Series all-in-one.
Printing and Copying Problems
■
Make sure your original is positioned in the top left corner of the glass. If the
edges are cropped, move your original away from the edges slightly.
■
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.
■
Make sure the paper size settings are correct for the paper you loaded.
42 Solving Problems
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 or matte 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, 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 CX5000 Series back on.
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 CX5000 Series 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 26).
■
For the best print quality, use Epson special paper (see page 26) and genuine
Epson ink cartridges (see page 35).
■
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.
Problems and Solutions 43
■
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 32 to see if the
print head needs cleaning.
■
Clean the print head as described on page 33.
■
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 35 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. Do not spray glass cleaner directly on
the glass.

may cause fires or shock. Do not use the cord with any other equipment.
■
Place the CX5000 Series near a wall outlet where the plug can be easily unplugged.
■
Do not let the power cord become damaged or frayed.
■
If you use an extension cord with the CX5000 Series, 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 CX5000 Series for sufficient ventilation. Do not
block or cover openings in the CX5000 Series case or insert objects through the slots.
■
Do not place the CX5000 Series near a radiator or heating vent or in direct sunlight.
■
Place the CX5000 Series 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 CX5000 Series is at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the
wall.
■
Do not open the scanner section while the CX5000 Series is copying, printing, or
scanning.
■
Do not spill liquid on the CX5000 Series.
■
Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service the
CX5000 Series yourself.
46 Notices
■
Unplug the CX5000 Series 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 CX5000 Series, do not tilt it, stand it on its side, or
turn it upside down; otherwise ink may leak from the cartridge.
■
Please consult your state and local regulations regarding disposal or recycling. Do not
put in the trash.
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 CX5000 Series or touch any cartridges during
printing.
■
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.
■
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.
