Question about Epson Stylus Photo R800 InkJet Printer

Epson Stylus C59 2 years old, hardly ever used, turned it on for a few minutes then turned it off. Tried to turn it on again but won't. Checked plugs, connections, everything but no response. Any quick troubleshooting tips?

The connection between the power on button and the power supply is a tenuous one at best. It is similar to modern PCs where pressing the power button doesn't turn the power off but instead tells the CPU to turn the power off. Obviously, if the CPU is hung up or in a snit, it can't or won't do it.

Anyway, one time I hit the button too many times, trying to power the printer off, about a year ago and it did, but after that it would not turn the power back on. I let the printer stand around with the power cord and the USB cable unplugged for about a month, waiting to save up money for a replacement R800. I got ready to order the new printer and, in frustration, plugged the power cord and USB cord back in and pressed the power button firmly (almost enough to break the button, also in frustration) and, ZAP, the printer came on and has worked since then. I think possibly the power supply "got confused" somehow.

So I guess that time heals all wounds.

Even with new inks, magenta and yellow won't print


The ink you replaced costs as much as a new printer that comes with ink. Get a new one.

What you could do is uninstall the printer, shut down the PC. Reboot the system, reinstall the printer and try to print again. Since you say you have checked all settings this should correct any coding responsible for the behaviour.

Good luck & God bless!

Replaced the ink cartridge now it will not print


*** I'll be more than happy to help you on that.
there is a great possibility that the nozzles of your printer are clogged by dried inks.maybe cause by the previous inks that you just replaced. we can check that by printing a nozzle check pattern.

1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus NX110 Series. 3. Hold down the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.1.jpg Stop button as you press the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus NX110 Series back on. When the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.3.jpg On light begins to flash, release the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.4.jpg Stop button. nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.5.jpg 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.6.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. Using the Control Panel 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Make sure the Epson Stylus NX110 Series is on and the ink light is off. 3. Hold down the nx110_tx110_ug.1.99.1.jpg Stop button for three seconds to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts around one minute. The nx110_tx110_ug.1.99.2.jpg On light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished. Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus NX110 Series during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it. 4. Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean. You may need to clean the print head up to 4 times. You can also turn off the Epson Stylus NX110 Series and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

Machine will not turn on


Possible hardware failure. Connect it directly to a working power source. Try to turn it on again.
If your unit is over a year old now, log on to epson.com. Click on the drivers and support tab. Click on help me find a service center to the right of the page.

Epson Photo Stylus 950 not functioning


when ever you want to refill ink make sure, that the ink you refill decompressed for about 30min before you fix it into the printer.
Another thing is that you uninstall the software of the printer and reinstall again, and check the power supply of the printer is working perfectly.

Blank pages are indicative ofdried ink.

If the printer has not been used for a long time ink may have settled and dried in the heads.

You may need to replace the cartridges (IF they are very old) and run several head cleanings if there is no improvement.

I typicall try to print a few test pages to see if some of the color work.
