Introduction
After you have set up your Epson Stylus® CX7400 Series all-in-one as described
on the Start Here sheet, turn here to:
■
Load paper
■
Make a copy of a document or photo
■
Print from a memory card or digital camera
■
Get the basic steps for printing from your computer
■
Scan a document or photo and restore or correct the color, if necessary
■
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 CX7400 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 double-clicking the icon for it on your desktop.
Please follow these guidelines as you read your CX7400 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 CX7400 Series.
Tip:
Tips contain hints for better copying, scanning, and printing.

Loading Paper
You can print documents and photos on a variety of paper types and sizes. For
details, see page 6.
1. Open the paper support and flip up the extension. Then open the output tray
and pull out the extensions.
2. Flip the feeder guard up.
3. Press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it left.
4 Loading Paper
4. Insert the paper, glossy or printable side up, against the right side and beneath
the tab.
Always load paper short edge first, even for landscape
printing. Load letterhead or pre-printed paper top edge
first.
You can load up to 120 sheets of plain paper, 80 sheets of
matte, or 20 sheets of photo paper. Load other special
papers one sheet at a time.
Note:
The type of paper you choose affects the way your printout looks. If you are just
making a copy or printing a rough draft, 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 6 for more information).
5. Slide the edge guide against the paper, but not too tightly.
Loading Paper 5

26 Maintaining Your All-in-One
Nozzles need cleaning
4. If there are no gaps, press OK to continue printing.
If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, press x Start to clean the print head
(see the next section for details).
Cleaning the Print Head
If print quality has declined and the nozzle check pattern indicates clogged
nozzles, you can clean the print head. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only
if necessary.
Note:
You cannot clean the print head if an ink cartridge is expended or low. You must replace
the cartridge first (see page 29).
1. Make sure the CX7400 Series is on and the B ink light is off.
2. Hold down the y Stop button for at least 3 seconds until the P On light
starts flashing, then release the buttons. The CX7400 Series runs a head
cleaning cycle, which takes about one minute.
Caution:
Never turn off the CX7400 Series during head cleaning or you may damage it.
3. When the P On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check (as described on
page 26) 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 two times, turn off your
CX7400 Series and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then try printing
again.
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.
Cleaning the Print Head 27
Checking the Ink Cartridge Status
When the red B ink light starts flashing, a cartridge is low on ink. You can
continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement. When the red B ink light
stays on, you need to replace a cartridge.
Note:
You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges
are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.
A window may also appear on your computer screen when you try to print when
ink is low. This window can optionally display ink offers and other updates
retrieved from an Epson website. On a Windows computer that is connected to
the Internet, you may see a screen asking if you want to receive these Epson offers
the first time you try to print when ink is low. Click Accept or Decline.
Note:
To disable checking for ink offers or updates from Epson, see the instructions in your
on-screen User’s Guide.
Tip:
If a cartridge is more than six months old, print quality may decline. If necessary, try
cleaning the print head (see page 27). If printouts still do not look their best, you may
need to replace the cartridge.
You can purchase genuine Epson ink and paper at Epson Supplies Central at
www.epson.com/ink3 (U.S. sales) or www.epson.ca (Canadian sales). You can
also purchase supplies from an Epson authorized reseller. To find the nearest one,

Use the following list when you order or purchase new ink cartridges:
For Heavy Use
For Moderate Use
69 Black
88 Black
69 Cyan
88 Cyan
69 Magenta
88 Magenta
69 Yellow
88 Yellow
28 Maintaining Your All-in-One
Note:
It’s best to use 69 for heavy use and 88 for moderate use.
We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges and do not refill them. The use
of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage.
Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency
of use, and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge
after the “replace cartridge” indicator comes on.
For best printing results, use up a cartridge within six months of opening the package.
Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
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.
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 any cartridges are low or expended, run
the ink cartridge replacement utility. See the on-screen User’s Guide for details.
2. Open the scanner.

30 Maintaining Your All-in-One
5. Open the cartridge cover.
6. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up. 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. Keep ink cartridges out of the
reach of children.
7. Before you open the new 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.
Replacing Ink Cartridges 31
8. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.
Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink may leak.
9. Insert the new ink cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks
into place.
10. Once you replace all the cartridges that need replacing, close the cartridge
cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
32 Maintaining Your All-in-One
11. Close the scanner.
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,
and the B ink light goes out.
Caution:
Never turn off the CX7400 Series while ink is charging or you’ll waste ink. If the
B ink light flashes, press the y Stop button and press down all the cartridges
securely.
Note:
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.

Problems and Solutions
Check the solutions below if you’re having trouble using your CX7400 Series.
Printing and Copying Problems
■
Make sure your original is positioned in the front right 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 side with the edge guide against its left side. Don’t load paper above the
arrow mark inside the edge guide.
■
Make sure the paper size settings are correct for the paper you loaded.
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 side, and
slide the left edge guide against the paper (but not too tightly).
■
Do not load too many sheets at once. Load up to 20 sheets of photo paper, 80
of matte, or 120 sheets of plain paper. Load other special papers one sheet at a
time.
■
Do not load paper with holes punched in it.
36 Solving Problems
■
If paper is jammed, follow these steps:
1. Gently pull out jammed paper from the output tray or sheet feeder.
2. If paper is stuck inside, turn off the CX7400 Series.
3. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the
scanner, and turn the CX7400 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 CX7400 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 in your printer software (see page 23).
■
For the best print quality, use Epson special paper (see page 6) and genuine
Epson ink cartridges (see page 28).
■
If you notice light or dark bands across your printouts or they are too faint,
you may need to clean the print head (see page 27). This unclogs the nozzles
so they can deliver ink properly. Run a nozzle check as described on page 26
to see if the print head needs cleaning.
■
Clean the print head as described on page 27.
■
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 low on ink. Check your cartridge status (see
page 28) and replace cartridges, if necessary (see page 29).
■
If a dotted line appears in the image, clean the document table 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.

Important Safety Instructions
Before using your Epson Stylus CX7400 Series all-in-one, read and follow these safety
instructions:
■
Be sure to follow all warnings and instructions marked on the CX7400 Series.
■
Use only the type of power source indicated on the CX7400 Series label.
■
Use only the power cord that comes with the CX7400 Series. Use of another cord
may cause fires or shock. Do not use the cord with any other equipment.
■
Place the CX7400 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 CX7400 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 CX7400 Series for sufficient ventilation. Do not
block or cover openings in the CX7400 Series case or insert objects through the slots.
■
Do not place the CX7400 Series near a radiator or heating vent or in direct sunlight.
■
Place the CX7400 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 CX7400 Series is at least 4 inches (10 cm) away from the
wall.
■
Do not open the scanner section while the CX7400 Series is copying, printing, or
scanning.
■
Do not spill liquid on the CX7400 Series.
■
Except as specifically explained in your documentation, do not attempt to service the
CX7400 Series yourself.
40 Notices
■
Unplug the CX7400 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 CX7400 Series, do not tilt it, stand it on its side, or
turn it upside down; otherwise ink may leak from the cartridges.
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 CX7400 Series or touch any cartridges during
printing.
■
Install a new ink cartridge immediately after removing an expended one. Leaving
cartridges uninstalled can dry out the print head and may prevent the CX7400 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 CX7400 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.
