Yes - if you start your computer, it connects to the printer. If the printer was in stand-by mode (saving energy), this "wakes him up".

My epson tx700 printer dispaly ink pad at end of life and printer not start


A fix from a forum:

Procedure 1 We found this procedure to work for the Stylus Photo 1270 type printer, and understand that it also works for the 870 range and even earlier models like the Stylus Color 740. The error is indicated on these printers by all four lights on the printer flashing. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable, for at least 20 seconds;
  3. When you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer's power switch was 'on' - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds (i.e. then release the button);
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
Procedure 2
  1. Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at it's home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete it's processing, then turn off for a few seconds, and back on again for a newly working printer!
Procedure 3 - for 1290 and possibly 890 printers 1290 printer with green (power / data) and red (ink / paper feed) lights flashing alternately:
  1. Switch off printer with panel switch;
  2. Switch off printer at mains switch - leave off for 20+ seconds;
  3. Hold down roll feed and sheet feed buttons;
  4. Switch on at mains;
  5. Switch on at printer panel;
  6. Continue to hold down roll and sheet feed buttons until both green and red lights flash together in synchronisation, not alternately;
  7. Switch printer off and then, after a few seconds, on again at mains switch;
  8. When red and green lights are both flashing in synchronisation, release the roll and sheet feed buttons;
  9. Press and hold down the ROLL FEED button (the one at the extreme left) and keep it down until the machine finishes whirring, cleaning etc and the green light comes on steady;
  10. Release the roll feed button and all should be well.

I get an error messige printhead error, and under this messige it reads: turn power off now before this message it reads for a fraction of a sec it reads offline under this message feed paper arros up...


for drivers go to http://www.usa.canon.com
you will find every driver for free download
after you have made this upload add printer but unziping each file and setting it on your system
under all Programs you will see new programs associated with your downloaded files Next, add Printer from "Start" add printer menu it will auto upload W8400 Printer.
make sure yout canon is "ON" and pluged to your "PC"
after this has uploaded you will see from the programs now downloaded one program called imagePROGRAPH firmware update too, click on the icon close all programs less this page and the program itself click OK and it will search for target printer, if the unit is conected it should show data of the W8400 Canon Printer including firmware, if the firmware reads 2.15 and the year you are in is 2011, then you are uptodate for now, if it reads a smaller number then do the next step, which is goto you printer and switch it off, then press (OK + stop/eject + information) do not let go of the bottons and switch unit ON.
do not let go untill you see GREEN online light come on

you now will see on the screen DOWNLOAD MODE send firmware. walk back to your PC and in the above menu you will see "file - view - printer - firmware - help" click on firmware and send the file.
Make yourself a coffee, by the time you drank it the screen should say load finished and switch off
do that and re start normaly the firmware should have updated. and 2.03 now read 2.15 any other number above this and you may have the wrong frimware.
If the unit still reads Printhead Error, and you see the ink is running okay, not block then it may be something wrong with the heads but if it is blocked place in hot water and you will see the ink flow
dry with paper towel by preding not sliding if you have print head problems still, check circuit conection if there is power comming to the head,

The printed pages come only from behind ......


There is probably a change-over swithc/wheel which either allows you to eject hard paper or board out of the back of the machine thereby avoiding folding it along the normal paper path. Flip this switch the other way and the paper should then follow the normal path. The switch is probably located next to or near the slot where the paper is coming out now.

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Try shutting down your PC and printer. Next,unplug PC from wall outlet. Next, unplug printer USB cable from the PC, then unplug the USB cable from the printer. Unplug the printer from the wall outlet. Wait 30 seconds. Next, plug PC back into outlet, turn it on, and wait until it has completely initialized and is ready to use. Next, plug in the USB cable from the printer to the PC, and turn on the printer. Windows should automatically detect the printer, and will proceed to install it. After the PC finishes the install, test the printer in all modes, including self-cleaning, to see if the problem is eliminated.

Epson 760 Problem


I found this procedure to work for the Epson Stylus 760 printer. The error is indicated by all four lights on the printer flashing and appears to be caused by the internal counters of the machine being exceeded. Even if you press the power switch on the printer, the lights continue to flash, and the printer does not turn off!

1) Turn off your printer, ensuring that the print head is at its home location and locked in place as normal.
2) Remove the four screws securing the top cover two at the rear and two at the front under the lift up cover and lift the cover off.
3) Remove both ink cartridges.
4) When you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer’s power switch was ‘on’ - switch it off and return to step 1.
5) Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down.
6) When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons.
7) Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds (i.e. then release the button).
8) The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
9) Insert the cartridges as normal and replace the cover.
