Black LCD continued. In fact, the Epson Stylus Photo RX600 appears to be notorious for the LCD burning out! If you go to the Epson Website, they list 3 parts dealers (in February 2007). 2 of 3 of them do not appear to list the LCD screen for replacement. The website of the 3rd one is down. I may call them on Monday. MEANWHILE-- Sooner or later you will want to change your ink cartridges. Here's how to get the cartridge holder to move: 1) Turn off the printer, then turn it on again. Wait until the lights stop blinking. 2) Press the [Setup] button. It should light up. 3) Press the DOWN ARROW 4 times (It is the down part of the concave circular button immediately to the right of the burned out screen). 4) Press the [OK] button TWO TIMES. If you are successful, the printer should buzz briefly. When you open the top, the ink holder should have moved to its "load/reload" position, and you can then change the ink cartridges. Other things to try: After unplugging the printer, I was able to remove the LCD screen with an assortment of flat head screwdrivers and phillips head screwdrivers. The LCD screen itself is in a metal holder, and plugs into a small circuit board, so it could be replaced if any of us can find a new one. It may also be possible to buy a surplus compatible LCD screen, and just plug it in. If it works, the new screen could be taped to the front of the printer, even if it doesn't fit into the manufacturer's hole... Some of you (who have the same mixture of tool skills, boldness, and stupidity as me!) will have the tools and the know-how to remove the dead screen. See if you can find it at an electronics parts supplier The serial number in mine was 0396563 -- If you can find a replacement, post who, where, how much and what. If you don't have the skills or the tools, don't try it. There is too much delicate stuff that can easily be broken on the way in... Just get another one-- Or maybe a Hewlett Packard next time around :-)

Found this fix (for FREE) on a thread of people who have had their LCDs go blank (include me in this number). Here is the thread address http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/30847 Steps I took ? and it worked beautifully ? display problem solved !! 1. Ease off the plastic facia that covers the control buttons ? (no screws ? it just clips on) 2. Remove the cross head screw that is seen to the bottom left of the display unit. 3. Flip display unit open ? remove the cross head screw that holds the dark plastic support clip that is behind the unit and top right ish!! 4. Remove the display unit ? unscrew the 4 small cross head screws that hold the display assembly together ? NOTE THAT THE CONNECTING RIBBON RUNS THROUGH THE HOLE ? I didn?t make a note at first, and it took me ages to work out where it went when trying to re-assemble it !! 5. Mark the connecting ribbon so that you know which way up it should be, then carefully pull it away from the black connecting block ? Re-assemble merely by pushing it carefully back into place. 6. On the circuit board you will see a large (ish) black Integrated Circuit ? using a magnifying glass you will see a tiny soldered fuse marked F1 just to one end of this Integrated Circuit. 7. Using a single strand of clean copper wire ( a single strand taken from a multi strand piece of speaker wire is ideal) carefully solder it across the two terminals 8. Having a soldering tip small enough is vital if you are to attempt this ? an ordinary tip is TOO BIG. I used a piece of copper earth wire (obtained from ordinary ?Twin and Earth? electricians household mains wiring cable) I then wound it around my soldering tip and filled it down to a fine point. 9. Re-assemble ? switch on ? and if you have been careful and succeeded in this feat of micro soldering ? you should have a realistic chance of having a fully functioning display once again.

Solution #5 worked a treat. I tried micro-soldering but it was beyond me so a blob of solder was deposited across the F terminals and I re-assembled ..... it works!!! Many thanks for sharing that.

Hi, I found this forum while searching for help for my burned out LCD on my epson RX600. I have a solution that actually worked 100% for me. After I left this site I found an ebay auction the guys ebay ID is ice*cube. He sells a set of fix it instructions for 7.99 no shipping because you download them. All you have to do is either replace a fuse with a small piece of wire or put one little tiny blob of solder in place to by pass the fuse (I choose the second option). My printer is now function 100% again. Thanks Theresa

My LCD display went black also. I can think of two possible reasons for a black display-- 1) The display is burned out. Comment: This is unlikely, since LCD's have a very long life. 2) The display has somehow gotten disconnected. Comment: More likely. The Epson Stylus RX600 has moving parts inside that could possibly jerk a wire loose or rub through it. My printer is past warranty, so opening the case will not void anything I was likely to get from the manufacturer or dealer. I plan to open it up, find and trace the wiring back, and look for any obvious damage or looseness. If that doesn't work, I will see if I can figure out how to replace the LCD screen. Then I'll see if I can get a replacement part from the manufacturer.

Hi!
Seems that the LCD screen of the printer is malfunctioning. Honestly it will be best if you will purchase a new one. One way to resolve the issue is by sending it to an Authorized Service Center in which may cause more.

The LCD display is black on my EPSON RX600 printer . I am unable to view menu on screen. How do i change the ink cartridges?? Do I need a neww bulb?


If you epson rx600 is installed on your computer, print from the Smart Panel. You can install drivers and programming by connecting it to your computer and letting the "found new hardware" wizard do it's job.

A bubble will pop up to let you know when you are low on or out of ink. Click on the bubble for more information and follow the instructions.

The RX600 does not print anymore. The screen on


This message indicates that your waste ink pads are full and require replacing. Replacement is costly, messy and requires the printer to be taken completely apart. Most often the counter has "jumped" to the end of life number, this especially happens where 3rd party or refilled inks have been used. If you believe this to be the case and there is no sign of ink leakage and the pads look fairly clean then you can just reset the counter using special software called the SSC utility. See these sites:

PC monitor is black unable to view


Most probably your LCD screen has got spoiled and the liquid has leaked making the screen blank. Remember our old calculators, how its display changed colors(black) when pressure was applied on it?.....sodeep

If the LED display screen on your printer is blank please try disconnecting
the USB cable from the computer and then disconnect the power to your
printer. Reconnect the power to a different power outlet, and turn your
printer back on. If the same issue occurs, your printer will require
service.

I seem to have fixed my own question. Thanks to the "silly girl" pressing buttons. On the Epson Stylus Photo RX600 try pressing the stop button, color button, B&W button and the On button all at the same time. It starts up without that fatal red indicator with a message saying the ink tray has been emptied. Press the OK button and things are back to normal, I hope!
