Question about Epson Stylus Photo RX600 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Suggestions for a dead display on a epson photo rx600
After quite a bit of searching on the internet, I found a solution that involves soldering a "jumper" across a fuse (F1) on the board behind the LCD screen. It was tricky because the fuse is very small and I burnt my fingers a couple of times, but finally it worked. Did that several years ago and my printer is still working today.
"It is on the board located directly behind the LCD screen. I looked and looked before finding it - it is very close to a larger component and that sort of hid it - you will need a magnifier glass unless you have great vision. It is about 1/16" long and as a matter of fact, the F1 wording is bigger than the component."
Here are instructions posted by John Phillips on "FixYourOwnComputer.com:"
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.

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
