Epson 925 printer spinning/whining action

My Epson 925 printer just shoved out a bunch of paper then when into a whining spin, then the 'general error' message came on. I cannot find anything in the manaul that disucsses a 'spinning' sound. With the cover open, when I turn it off and back on I can see the the belts or bands (tan in color) moving quickly and making the spinning, whining sound. I can't clear the error, or make it quit the spinning. Any suggestions? This printer is about 4 years old and has never had any problem (except when I use cheap paper which causes paper jams!).

This is the typical symptom of a paper missed & jam. Clear the paper larger and try again. BE SURE TO UNPLUG ELECTRIC PLUG.

SOURCE: jammed

First of all, look at the paper you pulled out - if it's in one piece, no corners missing, then the error isn't a paper jam thing. Now turn off the printer, push "stop", maintenace button and power button toghether, till a message appears. I also found the following tip that's also related to the same error, could be usefull: "As Epson printer users will know, waste ink from head cleaning etc. is channeled into absorbent pads in the base of the printer. Eventually these will fill up and need to be replaced, and some time before they actually fill the waste ink counter in the printer's firmware will signal an error and the machine won't print any more until the counter is reset. This normally requires a trip to the service depot (if the printer's worth the cost, and if it's realised that this is the problem -- lots of otherwise good printers go to the dump through this relatively minor problem.) The service depots have a program that can, among other things, reset this counter (but of course won't part with it -- there's money to be made, new pads to be sold...) There's a third-party utility available that can do this (look for sscserve.exe on the 'net -- carefully read the documentation and use it with great care...), but at the same time the pads need to be changed, otherwise you risk ink pooling in the base, sometimes finding its way out and making a right mess. Replacing the pads isn't for the faint-hearted, you have to virtually dismantle the printer to reach them. Here's how to get around it -- the two pictures below are almost self-explanatory: On the left rear of these printers is a small trapdoor held by a single screw. Remove it, look inside (down and to your left) and you'll see the waste ink tube. The tube is free at one end, and with a suitably curved piece of wire you can hook it and wangle the end out through the opening (you may dislodge a small piece of plastic in the process -- just put it back where it was, it's only a vibration damper.) At this point, you're almost there. All you need now is a suitable container for the waste ink, and to file a small slot in the trapdoor cover so you can put it back without pinching the tube (or you could just lave it off.) The container in the photo is a small square one with a snap-on lid, approx. 60mm square and holding about 150ml -- they're sold in sets of three for a few cents and are for making ice-blocks etc. in your freezer. Make a hole in the lid as shown (slightly larger than the tube to let air escape) insert the tube and forget about the internal pads forever. (I've used a new machine for the photos, don't expect the tube in yours to look so clean.)" Good luck

SOURCE: When I turn on my printer it makes a whining sound

Hello, dreadhead68

How old is the printer? Printer will ware out after a few years, I had an InkJet, and it sounds like yours is doinf the same thing mine did before I had to replace the unit. My printing unit made a single move then ... nothing after that.

Have you tried to re-install the software for the printer? How was it working prior to this?

I have Epson stylus photo 925 and get horizontal lines on printed page. I have run the Print Head Alignment program but the printout is too light to see. Aolution?


Hi

I suggest you clean it manually by removing the print head and then rub the print head in a plain paper with isopropyl alcohol until ink flows. Return the ink cartridge into the printer and run the print nozzle for 2-3 times.

Please let me know if you need more help.

My printer is only printing half of the page


half page? just half top page (top-bottom), or left and right. If just left half page, set page setup as actually paper wide that inserted. because, if actually paper wide is smaller than page setup, some epson printer jsut print half. before starting printing, the paper sensor measure paper wide first.

The high pitched whine and the paper stopping just before the fuser (the hot) unit is a known issue on the C3000 and C4100. If you are still searching for the solution to this issue, let me know, as I now have a working fix for the problem.
