Epson 1440 printer repair

Hello, I have an epson stylus photo 1400 ink jet printer that needs fixing. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it, but my 1 year old son was pressing the power button on/off a number of times, and then a loud grinding noise started, with both the paper/ink buttons blinking in red simultaneously. I've added a quick video which shows the problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwdymBIwEtg The only thing I have read is that the blinking lights indicates a fatal error and that possibly the wasted ink sponges are full and need to be replaced, but that does not explain the loud grinding noise. Please help!

Turn off the power and look inside the machine to the right hand side. Just in front to f the print head you will see a white plastic dowel (see photo). Use something technical - like a finger, pen or screwdriver - to push this dowel in. You can then move the print head by hand to the middle of the carriage.

Once moved, turn the printer on and watch it travel back to the home position. If after returning home the dowel pops back out and does not retract itself, you will need to strip the machine out and rebuild the ASF section. Sounds hard but its just a few plastic parts to take apart and reassemble whilst looking to see if anything is broken.

Get a service manual; for the machine HERE if you need to strip it out.

SOURCE: Blinking lights

The pads do need to be replaced. It is not as simple like the 1280. it does need to be taken into an authorized service center.
we are, and located in southern california.

I have taken the pads out and 95% of the time are all completely soaked. you can do what you did, but you will not get the full life out of a pad.

thanks

SOURCE: The paper and ink lights are blinking simultaneouly epson 1400

Hi,

It's hard to provide a definitive answer to this without detailed info on the exact flashing light pattern but it's possible you're right in this instance.

If you start up the status monitor you should get more information on this to confirm or indicate any other problems.

If it is the service required issue then you need two resources.

1. the A10_IPR utility

2a. Some kind of external waste ink tank to collect waste ink
OR
2b. To get the printer serviced at an Epson service center


Hope that helps... and if the problem is a "General error" please report back with more information re: symptoms and we'll see what we can do to help further.

Regards,

Martin

When I print out picture, pictur came out so many pink stripe across the picture.


There probably is nothing wrong with your PINK ink-cartridge.
It's one (or two) of the other colour ink-cartridges that either are EMPTY or having CLOGGED ink-jet mechanisms.

Run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle.

The problem can be two fold. Wrong cartridges, or blocked/damaged inkjet openings. Return it to the seller under warranty if its brand new. If it was fitted with non epson cartridges your warranty may be in question.

But I could almost guarantee the black qand the blue cartridges are faulty or their feed jets are

Epson 1400 won't print blacks


Hi

Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

Thanks

Reset ink-pad counter on epson stylus photo 1400


Hi,

The simplest way to do this is to grab a copy of the A10_IPR utility that Epson distribute to their customers...

The utility is available to North American customers if you register no this site page http://www.epson.com/ipr/

The utility is also know to be available in the wild if you search for "waste ink ipr".

Just remember to scan any download using a virus and malware scanner before you attempt to use it as some utilities contain trojans or similar nasties.

Hope that helps.

Communication error between Epson Printer and iMac


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
