Screens Picking off on press

133/1200 screens look great on the plate, but soon disappear once on press. Doesn't take long, either, 30-50 sheets. Have done everything Xante told me to do, all settings adjusted. Tried several fountain solutions. Any ideas?

Re: Screens Picking off on press

It definitely is a fuser problem. Plate is not getting enough heat to bond. We had same problem--put printed plate in oven at 250 degrees for 2 minutes--and like magic the plate was perfect. Not a permanent solution but sure works in a pinch.

Re: Screens Picking off on press

The problem is due to the fuser not to anything else seems that the fuser do not heat up the toner enough, what i did is to run the plate twice , as blank of course . it did the trick for my press.

Screen Setup

Do you mean for screen printing? How many colors? You need to assign specific LPI's, angles and dot type depending what you are trying to print. Your art also might need to be set up better. Can you send link to image and print?

Paper not feeding for epson nx400

Check the following:

  • If paper doesn't feed, remove it from the sheet feeder. Reload it against the right side, behind the tab, then press in the tab on the edge guide and slide it against the paper. Make sure the paper is not above the arrow mark inside the edge guide.

  • If multiple pages feed at once, remove the paper from the sheet feeder, fan the edges to separate the sheets, then reload it.

  • If the paper doesn't eject fully, you may have set the wrong paper size. Press the c:\users\home\appdata\local\temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif Stop button, then open the scanner and remove the paper. Select the correct paper size when you reprint.

  • If it's wrinkled when it ejects, the paper may be damp or too thin. Load new paper.

  • Make sure you use new, smooth, high-quality paper, that is not curled, creased, old, or too thin. Make sure to load it printable side up.

  • Do not load paper with holes punched in it for insertion in a binder.

  • Make sure you load only up to the recommended number of sheets. If you're printing on both sides of the paper, try loading fewer sheets.

Paper type

Load up to
this many sheets

Plain paper

Approximately 120

Epson Bright White Paper
Epson Presentation Paper Matte


Epson Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Ultra Premium Photo Paper Glossy
Epson Premium Photo Paper Semi-gloss


Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte
Epson Premium Presentation Paper Matte Double-Sided
Epson Photo Quality Self-Adhesive Sheets
Epson Iron-On Cool Peel Transfer Paper


If the paper jams, do the following:

1. Gently pull any jammed paper out from the output tray or sheet feeder.

2. To eject the jammed paper, try turning the Epson Stylus NX400 off and then back on.

If that doesn't work and paper is stuck inside, turn off the Epson Stylus NX400. Open the scanner, remove the jammed paper and torn pieces, close the scanner, and turn the Epson Stylus NX400 back on.

My Px 7 do not start, get stuck and the screen reads searching for OS


First of all, let's make sure that the computer is booting up from the Hard Disk Drive. To do so, follow these steps:
>Turn computer ON.
>After pressing the power button to turn the computer ON, keep tapping "F12" until Advanced Boot Configuration" comes up.
>Look for an option that has HDD. Select that option using either with the "UP" or "DOWN" arrow and hit "ENTER".
>If your computer boots up, then it means that the computer is not booting up to the Hard Drive but from somewhere else. If it still does not boot up then it means that the Operating System is corrupted and needs to be reinstalled using a Recovery Disc or a Retail version of Windows Operating System.

Solution!! Use "HP premium Plus Photo Paper" for the paper type setting. Works great with Avery labels & card stock as well. (business cards had the same alignment problem)

Printing problem with Pixma MP500

It sounds like the black tank/printhead is leaking. If it is, it'll be empty soon. New tank will solve that problem.

Brother MFC 6800 shows Replace Drum Soon even after replacing drum

Put back the sheet in.

Remove the drum, put back the starter sheet in with the flat edge toward you.
Turn the drum left gear to get the sheet in till the plastic notch are even with the edge of the sheet.

The put back the drum in the printer unit, close the unit and printer will eject again the sheet clearing the message.

you may have to try this more then once, the sheet should be at the right place in order for the message to clearout.

You also need to clean the 1/2 inch plastic windows at the bottom of the printer prior to put back the Drum. this will allow the laser to get to the drum unit more accuratelly.

Don't use alcool, or any liquid. this could damage or scratch the clear plastic windows and thus alter the print quality.

Printing fuzzy / bleed text with fuser saying needs changing soon!

Hi the blurring maybe down to the machine needing a color registration. Press the menu button then press either the up or down arrow to Maintenance press enter or # the using the up down keys again select color registration enter or # then print registration sheet once printed select M Y C or B and input the number that is on the printed sheet that corresponds to the straightest line. Once you have done this exit and try printing.

If that doesn't work then within the driver on the computer under printers and faxes right hand click on the printer select properties. Within properties you will be able to change the graphic mode please try this.

The fuser unit will need changing as they only have a life span there are no benefits to resetting as you will need to change it anyway. If you do not change the fuser then it will break leaving you with a bigger problem.

I do hope the above works for you.
Thanks J

Paper not picking up and alarm light comes on/stays on

Hi, You have the right idea of cleaning the rubber rollers behind the tray, (if the paper will feed through once then we can eliminate the idea of a paper jam)unfortunantly, when the rollers get too worn out then cleaning is not effective. I work on alot of Brother 5140 printers which look very similar to this model, and we pull out the tray,take the pick roller off of the printer, pull off the rubber part of the roller and rotate it 180 degrees from it former position which gives it a new area of wear. Usually that's a pretty good fix, and it isn't too hard to do, just make sure to note how it was put together before taking it apart. Good luck.
