Epson Epson Stylus CX5400


First off thanks for the great site. I have replaced the overflow tube as suggested in other posts and that resolved some problems, but still having a couple.

I currently have minor banding (blank lines) and when printing color I do not get magenta or yellow. Most notably on the windows xp printer test page. I only got this problem since replacing all the cartriges (black, cyan, magenta, yellow)

Probably clogged printheads, any other suggestions or ideas? Will order print head repair kit and test.

Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
If you cleaned the ink purge tube then it usually is just a clog. Be sure to buy the plus kit.

thanks, thats kinda what I figured. Just sort of weird how 2 colors got clogged at the same time.

Had an Epson CX5400, got clogged up, found 8000 posts (no exaggeration) about the same problem, got no satisfaction from tech support or customer service. Piece of crap.
Switched to HP, happy since.
