SOURCE: All lights flashing on the Epson Stylus photo 870

Unfortunately, the Russian software does not work on a Mac, and it crashes at launch when installed in WZ98 under Virtual PC. However, I found this on another site, and it worked immediately:

The sequence to reset the waste ink counter is as follows:

WASTE INK ROM RESET ONLY 870, 1270

1. Turn the printer off using the power button on the panel of the printer.
2. Disconnect the interface cable at the back of the printer.
3. Hold down the "LOAD/EJECT" and "CLEANING" buttons simultaneously.
4. Turn the printer on. Release all buttons as soon as paper out light flashes.
5. Quickly press (within 3 seconds while PAPER OUT light is flashing) the "CLEANING" button for 10 seconds.
6. Release the button and the printer will initialize.
7. Once initialization is complete, turn the printer off.
8. Reconnect the interface cable.
9. Turn the printer on

Works great, no muss...no fuss!

Error 5100 what do i do???


Error 5100 points to a "carriage jam"
The carriage is the assembly that contains the print head and cartridges.
This error can be difficult to solve because various things can cause it.

Since this is a new printer, maybe there is some packing or packing tape that is obstructing the carriage.
Verify that the carts and print head are installed properly.

Check the gears as best you can for any obstructions.

If the carriage moves to a center position when you open the cover as if to change cartridges, try a reset to clear the error message :

1. Turn off printer (use button, don't unplug)

2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.

3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.

4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.

5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.

6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.

7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.

8. Your printer should respond as normal

I am getting error message 5100....can't locate the manual...Any ideas? Thanks!


Error 5100 indicates "carriage jam". The carriage is the assembly that contains the print-head and ink cartridges. This error can be difficult to solve because various things can cause it.

Make sure the ink cartridges and print-head are installed properly. Remove them and re-seat them.

Check the gears as best you can for any obstructions.

If the carriage moves to a center position when you open the cover as if to change cartridges, try a reset to clear the error message :

1. Turn off printer (use button, don't unplug)
2. Hold down Resume button and press Power button.
3. Keep holding down Power button and let Resume button go.
4. Press Resume button 2 times then let BOTH buttons go.
5. Green lights will flash and then stop blinking.
6. When green lights are solid, press the Resume button 4 times.
7. Press the Power button and the printer should turn off, if not, press the Power button once more.
8. Your printer should respond as normal

Sometimes you have to try this a couple of times, if you've never done it before. If this does not work, unplug, wait 3-4 minutes, then re-plug in.

Installed new cartridge but print still very light when printing from computer, print quality better when copying.


Please perform the following steps:

1. ‘Turn on the power’ to the unit and raise the ‘cartridge access cover’. The cartridges will move towards the ‘center’.

2. After the carriage (the cartridge holder) stops, unplug the ‘power cord’ from the back of the unit. This will keep the cartridges from moving back to the ‘capping station’.

3. Remove the cartridge(s) from the carriage.

4. Using a soft, clean, lint-free cloth or a cotton swab lightly moistened with distilled, filtered, or bottled water and gently clean the ‘face’, ‘edges’ and the ‘electrical contacts’. (Change to a clean cotton swab as needed).

CAUTION: Be careful not to touch the ink nozzles on the bottom of the print.

5. Inside the All-in-One, clean the contacts in the print carriage with a slightly dampened soft, clean, lint-free cloth. Allow the electrical contacts to dry completely.

The information provided above is also available in a graphical format at:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/genericDocument?&cc=us&docname=bpu01831

Note: Please do not insert the cartridge before performing the steps given below.

Check if the issue is resolved. If the issue persists, please perform a power-cycle on the unit.

1. Unplug the power supply from the wall outlet.

2. Unplug the power supply from the back of the printer.

3. Wait at least 20 seconds, then plug in the supply back into the wall outlet.

4. Plug in the power supply back into the printer.

5. Press the power button to turn the printer on.

Verify the results. If the issue persists please get back to me with the following information:

* Does the unit print the self test page properly?

1. Load the paper tray with unused plain white paper.

2. Press Setup until Print Report appears on the display, then press OK.

3. Press OK again. The self-test report prints.

Carriage keeps moving bck and forth when it is turned on. Dialog screen says to "clear carriage jam and press enter". No obvious reason to have carrige jam. I suspect it needs to be "reset" Do not have an...


Carriage most of the time its a Hardware issue and there is no guaranteed resolution.
Wherein we can try to resolve it by performing few reset :

Printer should be directly connected to wall outlet
Unplug the power cable from the back of the printer
Keep on tapping the power button on the printer for 30 secs
Plug in back the power cable and check
Check if anything is jamming the carriage then clear it
Open the catridge door take out the ctaridges and clean it with a dry cloth
Make sure the power is turned on and gently move the carriage(Catridge holder)
and check if anything is jamming it
to perform reset:
Unplug the power cable from the back of the computer
(with one hand) press and hold down the (#) and the (6) button at the same time and plug in back the power cable
Release the (#) and (6) button (the printer may shut down) on the screen it will display SEMI NVM reset
If none of them happens try it once more
if still the issue remains
Do the same by press (#) and (9) button
If still it doesn't work you may change the wall outlet and check if still the issue remains in that case the printer has gone bad and cannot be repaired
Can call HP to return the printer and get an upgrade at low price for replacing the damage printer. hp no.: 1-800-474-6836

Blinking orange light on hp 932c


Solution

  1. Check to ensure that the top access door is firmly closed.
  2. If the light continues to blink, open the top access door. When the top access door is opened, the print cradle moves so the yellow arrow on top of the cradle points to a drawing of a cartridge. Each drawing describes a symptom.

Solution two:


  1. Turn the printer off. Unplug the power cord from the back of the printer. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Wait 30 seconds. Plug in the power cord to the wall outlet. Plug in the power cord to the back of the printer.
  3. Turn the printer on.
Solution three:

The print cartridge carriage is stuck.

Solution

1. Open the top access door on the printer.

2. Remove the ink cartridges.

3. Turn the printer off, then on again.

4. Replace the ink cartridges.

5. Close the top access door.

Solution Four:

Issue

The 2-Sided Printing Module is installed incorrectly, not at all, or the back access door is unlocked or open.

Solution

1. Turn the knob on the rear access door of the printer counter-clockwise, and remove the door.

2. Insert the module into the back of the printer.

3. If the lights remain on, remove the 2-Sided Printing Module by pressing in the buttons on the ends of the unit.

4. Re-install the 2-Sided Printing Module by pushing the unit back into the printer without pressing the buttons, until it snaps firmly into place.
