Question about Epson Stylus C86 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson stylus 880i -All lights flashing

I tried Epson's instructions to turn off, disconnect from computer, turn back on -No go...

I tried reset key combos (turn on while holding ink and paper buttons down for ten seconds, then ink button for up to one minute...) -No go...

Any suggestions?

Also, if I do have to have the counter reset and ink pads replaced, how much $ should I expect to pay? And, where can I get it serviced?

Got the alternate red/green flashing light ona photo830. The app shown by Bill Miller sorted the problem and got the printer back on line. Use the 'protection counter' / 'reset counter option'

Thanks Bill :-)

You need to do some cleaning on this printer, because that causes it not to work , you can take the parts off from the printer and use alcohol to clean the dirty parts of the printer..

Hope that helps.............

Tip

Manual Counter Reset Method


To manually reset the Ink Jet Counter that compels you to clean your waste pads. For the tip on how to clean your ink waste pads go here.

Please Note: In some cases, your printer may be leaking ink so much and so often that not only does your ink pads need cleaning, but you may need to replace the ink reservoir on your printer or you will have a leaking mess on your hands. This is a decision and judgment only you can make. If your printer is leaking quite of lot of ink, you may have to take it to an authorized Epson Repair Shop or Person. Find an authorized location by starting at Epson.com

The solution below is valid for most of the following printer models listed below this solution, some listed may not work, some not listed may also work it varies as this method is listed below is illegal for an authorized Epson Tech to release.

Thanks to the many user boards on the Internet for this solution that I know has worked for people I've helped here on FixYa.

Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work the first time. The key is in pressing the buttons exactly at the same time. So if this doesn't work the first time, try again and try again. Most people state they get it eventually.

[thanks to fixyourownprinter.com for the crux of this particular solution]

"Printer Onboard Control Panel Key Sequence"

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

Don't give up, if it does not reset the first time. The timing is tricky for some people.

Supported Epson Models that I am aware of, others not listed may work and some listed also may not work, it varies but don't be discouraged to try and try again.

You can also try the software download solution listed in this tip I posted.

All the lights are flashing?


Here you can download the manuals and user guides: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=14430&infoType=Doc
Acording to the manual, when all lights are flashing an internal error has occured. EPSON recommends that you turn off your printer, wait 5 seconds and tunr it back on. If after turning it back on you still have the problem you should contact EPSON. Also try powering the printer off and disconnecting the power cable for a few minutes.

Hello Stompson,

You can go here and download this utility. It will allow you to select your printer model so you can reset the maintenace request.

http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html

If in the event this does not work try this 2nd procedure, it normally works with the older Epson models and may work for your model too.
1. turn off the machine for at least 5 minutes and disconnect the interface cable to the computer
2. push and hold down the "ink" button and the "paper" button and turn the printer on.
3. When the "paper" light flashes quickly release both the buttons and then immediately press and hold down the "ink" button only for at least 10 seconds.

Epson stylus cx5400 reset???


try doing this :

Reclamping the Ink Cartridges

Once you start the ink cartridge reclamp procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing.

2. Press a MENU button until you see CHANGE CARTRIDGE, then press the COLOR COPY BUTTON. The ink cartridges will move to the replacement position.

3. Lift up the unit's cover, to access the ink cartridges.

4. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, and lift it out of the printer.

5. Lower the cartridge back into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, as you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

6. Carefully lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus CX5400 begins charging the ink delivery system.
The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus CX5400 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on steady.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX5400 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

if the issue still persists - you need to call the vendor - it´s a hardware issue

Epson Stylus Ink Jet Printer


1. Turn printer off
2. Press the left 2 buttons down and continue holding them down while turning the power button on. (all 3 are now pressed down)
3. In 3 or 4 seconds, the paper feed (jam) LED light begins to flash. (middle button)
4. Within 3 seconds as the paper feed button LED still flashes, release all 3 buttons together and immediately press down the ink cleaning button (left) and continue to hold down for about 10 - 20 seconds. As soon as the cleaning docking button LED flash, release it. That's it! You are now reset and ready to go.
NOTE: This is a strict timimg procedure and must be done fairly precisely in order for it to work. It may require several attempts for it to work for you. But...it does work! Happy printing!

"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons", then hold down the ink button for approx. half a minute until the printer lights flash again then release it. That resets the printer.”
