Question about Epson Stylus RX680 Color All-in-One InkJet Photo Printer
After I made sure there was NO paper or foreign objects jamming the printer I was told (By Epson Tech support) when this happened to unplug the printer AC and USB and leave unplugged anywhere from 30 minutes to 2-4 hours and then plug it all back in and see if it works. For the most part it seems to work.....but WHO has time when they need stuff printed NOW to wait 30 minutes to 2-4 hours for a printer to decide to do its job?

Press the stop/clear button then press the maintaince button(spanner) and the ON button all at the same time in that order.That will reset it.

First question: have you the skills to open the printer?
Second: it is affecting the funcionality?
If both answers are not, then keep working.
If you want to open the printer, find and download the service manual, fin it in google, some places give it free, other ask for a donation and anothers sell all via paypal.Good luck

Yes you're right. Use SSC service utility or RX680 Adjsument program. Find at indoreset.blogspot.com. Don't forget to replace waste ink pad, or just extend outlet pipe of head cleaning mech to outside.

You can set it to "grayscale" and supposedly print only in black/grey.
However, Epson printers use a small amount of every color even when printing black only or greyscale (black). Your printer will still not work with one color tank empty.
Here is how to set it:
Open the properties page for the RX680 and on the "Main" tab, click on [Advanced]. A Note may appear egarding incorrect settings.
Click [Continue]. Find the [ ] Grayscale box and check it, the [OK]
Here is Epson's note on using grayscale / colors:

Run the Head Cleaning utility to clear any clogged ink nozzles. To run the Head Cleaning Utility, follow the instructions below.
For Windows users:
1) Make sure that your printer is ON and the error light is off.
2) Access the printer software.
3) Click the Utility tab, then click the Head Cleaning button.
4) Follow the on-screen instructions
5) When the power light stops flashing, click Print nozzle check pattern in the Head Cleaning dialog box to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle
If you find that any segments are missing from the nozzle check pattern, you may need to repeat the head cleaning and print the pattern again.
Or u could consult the user manual
u should let the ink settle for 12-24 hrs???
hope this helps u
