Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Epson dx3800 stopped printing. I get a communication error message. All cables etc checked, scanner works and printer will print scanned article when not connected to computer. Seems files cannot be sent from computer to printer? I removed all epson programmes and reinstalled them, printed just fine for 3 pages and then stopped again, with the same communication error.

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 192.168.2.1 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!!!

SOURCE: EPSON BX300F prints a page and then shows Printer Error.

Try uninstalling your printer, rebooting the computer, then re-installing your printer. If this does not work, it will require the printer top cover to be removed for further investigation. Either take the printer to a technician to investigate, or if you want to have a go yourself, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide information on how to proceed.

SOURCE: epson cs5500 scanner software wont work

try downloading the latest drivers from epsons website. if coping is working and printing is working, it sounds like a software problem. Its possible there is a bug in the scanner part of the drivers.

Communications error between Windows 8.1 computer and Artisan 835 scanner


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Epson scanner cannot communicate


My solution was that Epson Scan was set to connect via network instead of local. (All was working fine, then it quit-something changed this setting) Try this, go to start, choose all programs, choose Epson folder, choose Epson Scan, choose Epson Scan Setting. In the pop up box set the connection to local or network, whichever is appropriate. Close the window and open photoshop and all works fine. It could be that your problem is the opposite of mine- I try switching this to the other setting even if the change is wrong, then switch it back to see if that works too.

Good Luck.

Printer error


Hi,

Here a few common problems that your Epson printer and ink cartridge can suffer from.

Improper Installation of Cartridges

A common Epson printer and ink cartridge problem! If you have changed the ink cartridges then you might just receive this error message. The message might state that the cartridge is not installed correctly in the printers. In such cases, re-install the cartridge in the correct manner. If the problem persists then it is advisable that you replace the cartridge as it might be defective. If you still get the same error message on installation of the replacement cartridge then its time that you clean the print head. You could do this yourself or could take it to a repair facility.

Printing Failure

Failure to print documents is yet another common problem with respect to Epson printers. The print heads of Epson printers are sensitive and this sensitiveness is the culprit behind such problems. If the print head is clogged or blocked you will have to unclog or unblock them. This can be done by using a special fluid that is available for just this purpose only. This fluid flushes the print head, and your printer is once again ready to print.

Communication Error

'Communication Problems' are yet another one of the common problems surrounding Epson printers. Once you give the print command you might be shown the message that there is a communication error between the printer and the computer. This means that there is the occurrence of a minor problem. One of the reasons for this problem could be the inappropriate selection of printers from the print options menu. Cable connections should also be checked. Another solution could be the re-installation of the driver of the printer.

Print Jobs that are Slow or Incomplete

These are problems that occur during an ongoing process. The printing might stop midway and then start again after some time. At times, the printing process will repeat itself several times and then finish printing the page. There are times when the page will finish printing, but you will find that it is an incomplete print. More often than not, this is not a printer related problem.

What might have happened is that the driver might have corrupted or a virus might have infected the computer; or a spyware might be affecting the working of the printing process. If such a problem occurs, the best solution would be to scan the computer for viruses and spyware. As can be seen these common Epson printers and Epson ink cartridge problems can be sorted out quite easily.



hope it helps..

Thanks for using fixya...

Scaner Epson CX-5400 error message


What is the error message? SCANNER ERROR?
If that is what you getting, turn printer off then open scanner cover- on the left hand side there is a toggle log for scanner, position it to unlock then turn printer on then try scanning/copying again.

if your having a different error message pls indicate the exact error that you are getting.
