Note:
Since the quality of any particular brand or type of paper may be changed by the manufacturer at any time, EPSON cannot attest to the quality of
any non-EPSON brand or type of paper. Always test samples of paper stock before purchasing large quantities or printing large jobs.
Poor quality paper may reduce print quality and cause paper jams and other problems. If you encounter problems, switch to a higher grade of
paper.
Do not load curled or folded paper.

The figure given is based on continuous printing after ink replacement. The actual
print capacity may vary. The ink charging process reduces the print capacity of the
initial cartridge, even though it contains the standard amount of ink.
** Ink thaws and is usable after approximately 3 hours at
77 °F (25 °C).
Caution:
To ensure good results, use genuine EPSON cartridges and do not

7. Open the File menu and click Select Scanner. You see this
window:
Cleaning the Print Head
If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are
missing, you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs
the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head
cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
8. Select EPSON TWAIN 5 and click Select. (You need to
perform steps 6 and 7 only the first time you run EPSON
Scan to File.)
9. Click Next on the File Save Settings screen. After a
moment, you see this screen:
Note: You can also use a printer software utility to clean the print
head right from your computer. Select the ? or Help button on your
printer settings window for instructions on running the print head
cleaning utility.
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5200 is turned on but not
printing, and the Error light is off. (If the Error light is
flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge; see
page 8)
2. Press a Menu button until you see Head Cleaning on the
LCD screen.
3. Press the Color Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON
Stylus CX5200 makes some noise and the On light flashes
briefly.
10. EPSON TWAIN begins scanning your image in Full Auto
Mode. Wait for scanning to finish.
To stop the scan and select settings in manual mode, click
Cancel. Then click the Manual mode button on the next
screen. You see the EPSON TWAIN settings dialog box.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5200 while the On
light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX5200 hasn’t moved or made
noise for more than 5 minutes.
4. When the On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check to
confirm the print head nozzles are clean.
Make sure plain paper is loaded, press a Menu button until
you see Nozzle Check on the LCD screen, and press the
Color Copy button. The nozzle check pattern prints.
Note: For detailed information on EPSON TWAIN settings, click the
Help button.
11. When scanning finishes, EPSON Scan to File saves your file
to the location you selected. It’s ready to open in a
compatible image editing program, print, e-mail, or use as
you like.
5. Examine the nozzle check pattern you print. It should look
something like this:
❏ If your printout looks okay, you’re done.
❏ If any dots or lines are missing, clean the print head
again; see the previous section for instructions.
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three or four
times, see the “Problems and Solutions” section of your onscreen User’s Guide. You can also turn the EPSON Stylus
CX5200 off and wait overnight—this allows any dried ink to
soften—and then try cleaning the print head again.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your EPSON Stylus CX5200 for a
long time, the print quality can decline. It’s a good idea to turn on
your EPSON Stylus CX5200 at least once a month to maintain good
print quality.

Replacing an Ink Cartridge
3. Lift up the entire scanner unit.
If the Error light on the EPSON Stylus CX5200 is flashing
and you see an ink low or ink out message on the LCD screen
and your computer monitor, you need to replace one of the
cartridges. 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.
Use these ink cartridges within six months of installing them
and before the expiration date on the package:
❏ Black ink cartridge: T0321
4. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, lift it
out of the printer, and dispose of it carefully.
❏ Cyan ink cartridge: T0422
❏ Magenta ink cartridge: T0423
❏ Yellow ink cartridge: T0424
Caution: To ensure good results, use genuine EPSON ink
cartridges and do not refill them. Other products may cause
damage to your EPSON Stylus CX5200 not covered by EPSON’s
warranty.
When you need new ink cartridges, contact your dealer, or call
the EPSON Store at (800) 873-7766 or visit
www.epsonstore.com (U.S. sales only). In Canada, please call
(800) 463-7766 for dealer referral.
Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the
ink.
5. Shake the package of ink four or five times. Then remove
the cartridge from the package.
Caution: Don’t touch the green circuit board on the back of the
cartridge; you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and
water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them thoroughly with water.
Caution:
To avoid damaging the EPSON Stylus CX5200, never move the
print head by hand.
You cannot print if either ink cartridge is empty. Leave the empty
cartridge installed in the EPSON Stylus CX5200 until you have
obtained a replacement. Otherwise the ink remaining in the print
head nozzles may dry out.
Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges
Don’t touch the green part
6. Lower the cartridge into its holder, then press down on the
top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once
you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must
complete all the steps in one session.
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5200 is turned on and not
printing. The control panel tells you which ink cartridge is
low or empty.
2. Press a Menu button until you see Change Cartridge, then
press the Color Copy button. The ink cartridges move to
the replacement position.
If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat steps 4
through 6 before continuing with step 7.

7. Carefully lower the scanner unit and press it down until it
clicks into place.
4. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical
lines most precisely printed on top of each other. You may
need to use a magnifying glass or loupe.
The EPSON Stylus CX5200 begins charging the ink
delivery system.
Charging takes about 30 seconds. The On light flashes and the
EPSON Stylus CX5200 makes noise. When it’s finished, the
On light stops flashing and stays on.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5200 while the On
light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX5200 hasn’t moved or made
noise for more than 5 minutes.
Aligning the Print Head
If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may
need to align the print head.
Note: You can also use a printer software utility to align the print
head right from your computer. Select the ? or Help button on your
printer settings window for instructions running the print head
alignment utility.
1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5200 is turned on and not
printing, and the Error light is off.
2. Load a stack of plain, letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.
3. Press a Menu button until you see Head Alignment, then
press the Color Copy button to print the first alignment
page.
Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5. (In this
example, the best pattern in each row has been circled.)
5. Press the + or - Value buttons to select the number of the
best pattern for the first row, then press the Color Copy
button. Repeat this step for the second, third, forth, and
fifth rows.
Note: If you select a pattern other than 8 in any row, that pattern
becomes pattern #8 next time you align the print head.
