Question about Epson Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

My Epson Stylus Photo R2400 is not working. When I open the lid to change the ink cartridges, the cartridge drive does not move into the open like it used to. Besides that i just can't get it to print, it just did that overnight. Any suggestions?

    Thank you Gremlin, this was a very helpful post. I was hoping it was an easy fix because I doubt it id still under warrantee but I have barely used the thing and so sad that it now doesn't work.
    Will look up service agents.

You have a failed main board, I have seen this before and there is nothing you can do. You need to replace themaiin board and have the firmware updated. This should be done by a regestered service agent.
As the unit is a high end a3, it is well worth repairing. The cost for your repair will not even come close to the cost of a replacement unit, and besides that, none of the new units can do any thing better than this one.
If it is still under warranty, you have nothing to worry about. It will be fixed without question.

Epson R2400 paper and ink lights blinking red. Ink waste pad replaced and counter reset to 0. Lights still blinking red. Close inspection for any loose objects in printer but none found. Please advise....


Try to turn on your printer without the ink cartridges. When the printer starts and ask for the cartridges, put them back in.

(To remove the cartridges turn on the printer, watch the print head carriage move, when it is at the center quickly unplug the power cable, move the carriage by hand to a position where you can remove the cartridges, after removing the cartridges push the carriage to the right where it should be parked.)

The cartradge block is blocked at the right handside most likely due to a faulty cartridge. How can I manually move the block to the left and get the cartridge out??


For a forced cartridge change it will either be a quick press of the ink button or by holding the paper feed button for 10 seconds. Or there may be a an Ink cartridge replacement option the Printing Preferences > Maintenance section of the driver.

Epson stylus k3 r2400


Hi Lisa
The R2400 has the choice of two black inks, MK and PK. One is for Matt printing, the other (called photo black) is for gloss.
If the printer has the matt cartridge fitted it only allows suitable options, including paper choice, to be selected. If you change the black cartridge from the MK to the PK one, you should then have the choice of gloss paper.
