Epson DX3850 will suddenly not print

Hi there
my epson printer, although it has been working OK previously, suddenly does not print. I had to change all print cartridges, this was done easily as normal. Now the PC displays "printer not ready to print" but there are no error lights on the printer. Just the Green On line, and the Green light under A4 indicator.

I have unfortunately lost the instruction leaflet so do not know how to solve this.

Would you kindly help?

SOURCE: Copies and prints but won't scan

if your scanner is on a wireless network, you will need to make sure the scanner address in epson scan settings matches the address your router has assinged to it. The DHCP address. Log on to your router by typing or some variation thereof into your window internet explorer address bar. or find out how to log on to your router via the manufacturer of the router. When you do that find the DHCP client list and see what address your router has assigned to your scanner. Once you have this address open epson scan settings and delete the current information there, then add a new scanner by manually entering the address you got from the router.
I have to do this all the time!!!
email me at if you want more help

SOURCE: Epson printer: print head not moving to replacement position

Unplug the printer when the head reaches the point where you can take out the cartridge.
After you have replaced the cartridge, plug the printer back in.
Good Luck.

SOURCE: dx3850 epsonprinter problem jam

It was not easy, but we found a solution.
There are two key points: how to remove the panel with all the LED and buttons, and how to dismount the scanner.
The first is easy: back to the panel there is a small ****. Raise it up, and push the panel to the back of the printer. The panel will slide backwards, and can be easily removed. Carefully disconnect the flat cable and remove it.
The second point is *much* more tricky. The chassis part near the USB plug is only cosmetic, and can be easily removed once the button panel was removed. There is a clip that may be operated in the most back part of the button panel. After opening the clip raisin it a little bit, the small part may be easily removed (forcing a little bit).
Under it there is a screw fixing the left side of the scanner. To remove it you must disconnect all the cables going to the scanner.
The screw on the right side is easily accessible from the scanner top.

The rest is easy
