Question about Epson Stylus Photo R320 InkJet Printer

10 Answers

No power? Nothing, nada, happens when I push the power button. Tried the stop-maintenance button combo also. The fuse in the power supply is good. Power gets to the power supply but who knows from there.

    Unit is out of warranty.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    Problem is still there.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    Yes there is power at the outlet.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    Outlet is hot. Door is not blocked.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    As I said, the fuse in the power supply is good. The power cord itself has continuity from the outlet to the power supply.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    Are technical troubleshooting guides available? Schematics?

    Already tried that.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    Sorry, I was assuming that all of my previous comments were available to all viewers. All of your questions have already been answered.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    So much for the DIY self initiative.

  • adwoz Sep 16, 2008

    Thanks, This IS helpful information. My dream solution would have a method to determine if the power supply is in fact bad or not without replacing it. The service issue has not come up as far as I can tell. (I personaly don't use this printer. I just get called when it doesn't work.) I'll try the links for tech manuals.

How long have you owned the printer. Please do not pass or ask for more assistance til I have all the information and can assist you properly. Your best bet is to locate the nearest authorized service center at this link
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&category=Products&infoType=Contact&oid=47541
though you may have to contact their tech support. Your only other option is replacement in the future you may want to consider an extended warranty. If you have a moment to accept and rate this solution it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Lee

Remove the ac power cord from the printer for 5 min and then plug it back and check if its power on ,if it fails try another ac mains even this fails then try to change the power cable ,if this did not work then you need to give the printer for service.........


Good luck....

Hi,
Could you give me the model number for the epson, so that i can tell you if there are any serviceable parts for your printer. Generally the best option is to replace the printer.Coz that would be a more cost effective proposition then trying to fix this one.



Thanks

Hi,

I am assuming that you have a fair knowledge of electrical/electronics components and circuitry as well as safe practices involved in repairs of this nature.

Having said that, I would further assume that you have opened the casing, did continuity check on the fuse and visually inspected the power supply section. To mu knowledge, the PSU used by this printer is an SMPS (switch mode) very similar to what a desktop PC would be using, though compact. Repairs of the PSU would then be component level and often requires voltage checks (of course live) and preferably with a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram for reference.

In most instances, the entire power supply is replaced. Pls reference this page for replacement assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Re Service Manual:

    To my knowledge, an Epson the R320 is an enhanced R300/310. it has the optional color view screen plugged in as a standard, hence the service manual for R300/310 would also serve the purpose.

    Pls try here.


  • Louie  Role
    Louie Role Sep 16, 2008

    A question pls, was there an instance that the printer displayed "Service"? and if so, was service down or was it ignored? I was made to understand that some versions of this model would shutdown if a "service is not performed and a special reset has to be done (not the "Press and hold 'stop' 'maintenance' and 'power' buttons for about 10 seconds.").

    Should the initial link not be sufficient, pls go a Google for r300s_m.zip.

Try unplugging it from the PC and the outlet, and plug it in elsewhere in another socket in the room or home; check if there is something blocking the printer's door.

If you live in australia.. make sure the switch is on for the outlet... even other countries sometimes have wall switches for the outlet.... if you have not already... plug a lamp or other device into the wall socket to confirm it works

    that printer is fairly new and if the warrenty is out of date.  you could open
    up the shell of the printer and the board has a tiny glass fuse...


    Note: this would be your last option so please understand that If you are not confortable doing this
    i would bring it back to the store ans see if this modle has a recall or othe power issues.

    Not all printers have a fuse inside so this model I can only give you the best knowledge that I can and it would not hurt to take a look?

    Thank You Jayson

    You need to take it apart

  • Jayson Brollini
    Jayson Brollini Sep 16, 2008

    Just Kick it real hard and then see if it has any life left in it ..

    I think that your printer is DOA and I would really suggest that
    you call the manufacture and say that the plug hot and this is
    a FIRE HAZZARD and that you demand a replacement.

    Because you are not risking a loss due to the poor workmanship 
    of this Printer..

    Hey it is better than taking it all apart and finding out that you 
    can not fix it the problem.

    Thanks Jayson

You may have a problem with the switch panel board. If you disassemble it, you may be able to test the panel by shorting the two connectors to the power button. On the other hand it could be the power supply that is dead on the output side. Both are problems that do occur with R3** series but not that common.

Nothing happens when I push the power button on the front panel of NAD917 Preamp. Any idea why? Is there a way to reset the box?


Probably a fuse in the unit. Unplug it and open it. If you see a blown fuse, take it out and look at the writing on the metal part. buy a fuse with the same power ratings.

Dishwashers will not switch on. The power is connected, but when pushing the button, nothing happens.


Maybe you did not connect it properly in the first place. Try to ask a Tecnician to check the power Supply board cos next time you might not be able to start it

Nothing happens when push start button. power cord etc good ??? is this a power unit failure?


make sure the outlet is recieving power

unplug the tower from the outlet & then replug it in & see what happens

make sure all cords are plugged in correctly in the back of the tower

then if nothing happens after you push the start button, power supply & cord could be bad

the same thing happened to my daughter's pc & had to replace power supply & shorted out the motherboard
