EPSON R220 - Open

Dear Worldv:

I am trying to retrieve an object that fell into my printer and the object is not visible from just opening the usual lids. Do you have any diagrams that show how to open this printer? I'd appreciate any help. thanks.

    Hello, Worldvet:

    Thanks for your reply. The object that fell into a printer is a metal ring and since I cannot see it I have not wanted to turn on the printer in case it creates a short circuit.

    Ken.

    With a little giggle or two this ring should settle towards the bottom. Still, the chance of that causing a short circuit is very very slim. There are no real open exposed wires. Everything is circuit board level and insulated from potential ink spills.

    So, you can rest assured it won't cause any problems. The process of disassembling this cases is not all that easy, even for those of us who have been doing this since they came into existence.

    The only thing I can caution you to be alert to would be during the power on self test the printer runs. If the ring is in position to jam a moving part that should cause the printer to halt and the light panel will start blinking. If that were to be the case, an inspection of the compartments that can be opened by a tech onsite should reveal the culprit. Me, I've found broken light bulbs and child's toys in printers. Only then, though, would I endure the expense to have a local tech look at your printer.

    Hope that gets you going and feeling more assured of your problem. Please, don't hesitate to keep this open before you rate until you are satisfied with your printer and have turned it on and watched the power on self test.

    Regards,
    Worldvet

    Have this resolved your problem or do you need further assistance.

    If you are up to it I can get you instructions to open this outside cover of your printer.

    You could also remove the ink cartridges, place each in its own zip lock bag and shake the printer upside down (not so easy on the RX series as they are heavy) this might get the metal ring to drop out.

    So, let me know if you are done with this trouble ticket and then you can rate my solution. Please, don't rank it Thanks for Trying, because I'm willing to try to help you more and my energy to handle your request would be in effort to FIX your issue not just be helpful.

    Regards,
    Worldvet

Colors are way off


Leaking cartridge, heads need cleaning, and alignment. Run your utility it will solve those that are fixable, if it is sttill bleeding, you got a bad cartrtridge, open the area where the ink goes and look for visible leakage of ink to start, I'll await you findings and go from there, But you cand clean the heads and line up the heads thru the utility. Shut down and retart before printing a test page, good luck

When i try to reset counter, it comes up communications error


A communications error usually means that there's a problem with the connection between the printer and the computer.

This could be because of a duff USB cable or something pulling on (and damaging) the connections. However I've also heard of this behaviour when using the SSC utility in an attempt to reset the waste ink counter which I'm guessing is what you're trying to do.

If you are based in the USA I'd recommend filling out the form for this utility:
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/InkPadsForm.jsp

It does invalidate your warranty but the R220 is that old that you won't have anyway.

If that doesn't work then you could try looking for an adjustment utility but be warned they are a lot more complex and it's easy to bork your printer if you're now careful.

Clear the obstructions.

Turn it off then do the self test and check if the printer will printer without using computer
self test (press and hold the paper button and press and release the power button, if you can see the green light is flashing release your hold on the paper button. By the way make sure there is paper on the printer)
If it prints good then you need to check the settings on your computer.

Epson R320 carriage jammed


The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly.  Unplug the printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink cartridge out.
 
Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before applying the power.
 
Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as some remnant of paper.

The printer may have an internal error or a hardware issue already.
Ink pads full usually indicates if all lights are flashing and an error msg would pop up in your computer screen "parts inside..."

Here's what you may want to try.
Just turn off the printer.
Checked for obstructions or any foreign objects inside the printer.
Try to check from inside the printer where the ink cart holder is, from where you load the paper and from where the paper comes out.
