Cannot Print from on Epson CX8400 from Mac OS X Leopard

Followed all Epson's instructions, reloaded latest drivers. Whenever I print the printer either puts the job on hold or spews out blank pages. Scanner works fine. Now running out of ideas apart from dumping the printer!

I could only get my CX8400 to work with Leopard once I manually selected the driver located at /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/EPSON Stylus CX8400.gz

I think that may have appeared after installing a driver downloaded off the web, but I didn't track my steps carefully enough to be certain. I used

I know this is a bit jumbled, but hopefully it helps.

Most likely you have configured the printer to output a "cover sheet" as used in a large organization, to identify you as the owner of the print job, but you've not put your name in it. This is likely in the "printing preferences" part of the setup.

Why wont my epson printer model # cx9300f print

Okay I would first go to epson's site and get the latest drivers for the device. The problem could be if your using the driver given to you by the manufacturer that the drivers could be useless due to a random windows update. Verify that you have the latest drivers and then attempt to connect the device again. If you continue to get the communication error then the device is likely faulty and needs to be replaced.

Prints blank pages and gibberish

You may have to shut down the printer completely, including disconnection of power. When you reapply power, the printer should be indicating it is offline so you will have to put it online again.

Hi the Epson R350 printer when it prints a photo it is going beyond the size of the photo size with a narrow strip of cyan evenally spaced all the way down the photo like its over printing. It only the one...

There are several potential solutions:
First, see if the paper guidance system is working properly and is aligned properly. It may be a case of misalignment, so the paper is positioned too much at one end so the print heads seem to be going off the page, while in reality the paper is to the side. If the print cartirdge box is aligned as the CMYK model, then the Cyan color is printed on last, with Magenta Yellow and Black spewing out ink onto the paper guiding mechanism.
Second option is print head misalignment, so you'll need to run a realignment procedure from your Epson control panel software.
Third is a drivers issue. Make sure you have the latest drivers that match your operating system, here's the download page
If this doesnt help, a general reset of the printer may be useful: Turn off printer, then press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds. A message will appear on the screen. power off and back on for reset.

New Epson RX595 won't print

Apparently the latest software doesn't work with Leopard 10.5.2. I uninstalled the Epson software and installed the earlier version [driver version 3.88] that come on the Installer CD with the printer. Printing now works.

I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.

No printing

The issue that your having is not with the software. Try cleaning the heads using the printer utility/driver, then try to take the cartridges out and put them back in. Then try to print
