Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, a couple of ideas you could try:

  • download, install and run Epson SSC Utility or click hereassuming would work with your model) and perform deep cleaning. It may be to your advantage to make use of cleaning solution in ink cartridges that simulate the regular inks;
  • soak the printheads with warmed isopropyl alcohol;
  • use a suction bulb on the printheads;
  • worst case scenario, replace the print heads. Or alternately consider other options such as a printer replacement.
(Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

HI
If ink cartridges are new, perform print head or maintenance cleaning at least 3x consecutively.

    Apparently, sometimes the cover over the laser sticks shut after replacing the print cartridge, or removing a paper jam.

That means that the printhead is clogged or faulty.

Try first using an EPSON CLEANING CARTRIDGE.

If that does not work , replace the printhead.

How to maintain your ink-jet printer


In the printer market there have thousands difference brands and models ink-jet and laser-jet printer, how can we eleminate their trouble to the minimon and extend their lifetime as long as we can. The paper tray for the ink-jet printer most are open top style, therefor very easy to catch dust and other cbject and cause paper jam, paper skew, paper rinkle, some cases are easy to remove some don't,when you have those case happen, the first thing you have to do is check the paper tray inside of the bottom , looking for somethings it not belong to, then clean up the paper feed roller with rubbing alcohol. Now how can we prevent it happen, the way is when finish printing use something to cover the tray. when paper jam occure, remenber, never pull the paper opposited way, you have follow the direction let he paper go forward, otherwise you going to damage the paper senser.
How about laser printer, the laser printer it's structure much stronger than ink jet s the cost much higher too, but their maintainence much easier, when it have paper jam occure, commonly replace paper pick up roller and paper stop roller, if you hear noise from back of the machine, 90% the fusing unit have problem, if the noise come from front, the problem almost in cartridge, the cartridge, here , I like to give you advise, use brand name cartridge better than generic one. because, too much manufacture, skill all difference as well as quality all difference, be careful, be smart !

Gives me error 5200


Start with printer powered off
1. Open cover of printer and verify that the ink cartridge carriage is not in the center of the printer. Leave cover open.
2. Unplug the electrical cord from the printer and wait 30 seconds.
3. Plug electrical cord back in, when ink cartridge carriage moves to the center of the printer quickly unplug the electrical cord again. This should leave the ink cartridge carriage in the center of the printer so you can get to it.
4. Lift up the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridges.
5. Remove the entire ink cartridge holder (not just the ink cartridges). It will lift out easily as a unit. Lower the gray arm that you lifted to remove the cartridge holder.
6. Close printer cover. Plug electricity back in.
7. There should be a message about checking the ink cartridge on the display (I can't remember exactly what it said but it was something like that).
8. Open printer, lift the gray arm that surrounds the ink cartridge area and reinsert the ink cartridge holder (with the ink cartridges in it). Lower the gray arm.
9. Close printer cover.
10. The display should appear normal now, and you should be able to print again.

I am having trouble with an HP Deskjet D4260 printer. The printer has full ink cartridges and paper, none of the problem lights flash. When I print something, it prints, and the cartridges move back and...


Are you using HP's genuine cartridge and paper? Both have been designed together to work, maximizing the ink flow for efficiency and reliability. If you use a third party paper or ink, you will have a problem 50% of the time. Sometime you'll get lucky. HP recommends you use the genuine stuff, not just because they want your business, but because they want your printer to work.

If paper has jammed in the printer, clear the jam, replace the paper in the printer correctly and press the RESUME/CANCEL button.
See Paper Jams
bullet.gif Four flashes: Empty ink tank
If you press the RESUME/CANCEL button, it will continue printing with an empty ink tank. However, when printing is finished, replace the ink tank immediately. If you continue printing with an empty ink tank, it will be a cause of trouble.

Press the RESUME/CANCEL button to cancel the error so you can continue printing. Before the waste ink tank becomes completely full, contact a Canon service representative.

Printer will not work. Error E3


What may have happened is that the Paper sensor is locked down and tells the printer that there is paper in the path (although there isn't any). The paper sensor is a toggle switch and there is a paddle that pushes it down as the paper goes in/out. Look on the right side of the unit ,under the roller assembly. Sorry, but I do not have a service manual for this unit.

Error list :

E2-2 = No paper (ASF)
E3-3 = Paper jam
E4 = No ink
E5-5 = The ink cartridges are not installed or a non-supported ink cartridge is installed, or the ink cartridges are not installed properly
E8 = Waste ink absorber full, or platen waste ink absorber full
E9 = The connected digital camera / video camera does not support Camera Direct Printing
E14 = The Ink cartridges whose destination are wrong
E15 = Ink cartridge is not installed E16 - Ink remaining is unknown
E16 -E19 = Failed to scan head alignment sheet
E22 = Carriage error
E23 = Paper feed error
E24 = Purge unit error
E25 = ASF(cam) sensor error
E26 = Internal temperature rise error
E27 = Waste ink absorber full or platen waste ink absorber full
E28 = Ink cartridge temperature rise error -
E29 = EEPROM error
E33 = Paper feed position error
E35 15 = USB Host VBUD overcurrent error - USB
E37 17 = Abnormal motor driver error
E40 20 = Other hardware error
E42 22 = Scanner error

First, download the software at http://www.box.net/shared/4yblbn34kg

Secondly, to run the software your printer has to be in service mode. Do that by
- unplug cable
- press and hold "power" button
- plug cable
- press "resume" and release
- release the "power" button
At this stage, your computer will detect a new hardware

Run the software.

oke

I just today threw away my R220. If your 2 red lights are going and the power light is off, then your printer has died. It just happened to me. It sucks, but there is no way to fix it.
