Power button is pushed in to the camera It is stuck or broken there

Hello, The button maybe stuck in the grew, try this very very carefully
  • Take a small pin and insert it in the gap between the button and the housing, then tilt the pin and slowly try to lift it up.
the button may come up loose and fall, which means the switch is broken. press and see whether it works.
if you got your warranty you may get it fixed for free :)

The power button has broken

If this is only the buttton but the set is working allright, you can mend the broken one with a fabricated button. Get help from a plastic shop / machine tool shop or use an old knob to be stuck up and fixed into for activation of switch.
Have the set connected to an external switch and use the remote to switch on than the damaged switch which must be kept ON.

Broken on/off button

The spring is probably jammed or broken, just grab a small pick tool or something thin and small and pry it out, that should be a temporary fix if not then the front side panel has to be dissasembled and the spring or switch has to be replaced.

Good luck.

Paper jammed and cannot get out - how?

1)Don't try to remove the paper by pulling hard when its stuck.
2)As soon as paper gets jammed switch off your printer immediately.
3)I recommend switching it off by the button on the printer and not the external power switch.
4)Then wait 20 seconds and switch it on, your paper will come out unless its very tightly jammed and absolutely crammed
5) If it doesnt come you have to take out the the printing ribbon. There would be a handle on the upper portion of the place where you supply the papers. Take it out slowly. Make sure that the power is turned off while you do this.
6) Once you take the ribbon out the paper will be no longer jammed and you will be able to remove it manually.
7)After removing the jammed papers replace the ribbon and reset the printer(Resetting procedure varies according to model but usually its done switching the power switch(present on the printer) on while pressing the test print button(the external power switch should be on and current should flow).

The paper crinkles and jams. I have opened the from escape door and the paper feed through OK but does make a tick on the leading edge of the paper 2 1/4 Cm from the right edge. It looks a though there is...

Paper jams can be tricky to solve. The paper is usually stuck inside the printer mechanism so even if there is no visible paper jam, you will still get the paper jam error. Try this:

1. Turn off your printer
2. Open all trays and remove any paper stuck there
3. Locate the button to open the printer, open it and remove any paper stuck there also.
4. Repeate the above step for all buttons that you can find to access the inside of the printer
5. Close all doors and put back all trays
6. Turn on your printer

Ds lite L and R button dont work

Seriously, wrap your lips around the button and blow. Make an air tight seal. I know it sounds stupid, I thought so when I read it here

It worked for all them, myself included.

Epson 777 printer repair

There is a limit switch on each side or some models its located by the cam. If you took apart the can assy then the units out of mechanical timing and you are gonna need a service manual for this. If the switch is not working on the side I myself forgot to plug back in the small plug on the curcuit board. Good Luck
