Question about Epson FX 1180 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

I hit the power button on my epson fx-1180 printer today to turn it on, and I got a shock from static electricity. I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but now it won't turn on at all. I checked the electrical outlet & it's fine. The computer recognizes the printer, so it's not the computer cord. I can't find a reset button on the printer. Anyone know if it's a lost cause, or if it can be fixed? Thanks!

Check to make sure that the AC circuit is grounded properly.

Reset the printer:
To reset the printer’s EEPROM, hold down the Load/Eject, LF/FF, and Pause buttons while turning on the printer. The printer beeps once, and restores its factory default settings.

Hope this helps.

    You may have blown the power board. It may have a fuse on it. Then it may be more economical to purchase a new one.



    Good luck,

Steps to Configure Static IP Address for Epson Wireless Printer


The IP address is a specific number allocated to a device, which is connected to your PC network. If you require configuring a static IP address for your Epson printer, it can be possible by using the network configuration menu that you can access via the Internet browser on a connected system. To do that, it's necessary to know your printer's existing IP address. If you have a password protected the device, then you must know the username and password credentials to access your Epson printer network configuration menu. You can call at the Epson Printer tech support phone number and get expert's assistance to do that in a proper way.

Find Epson Printer's IP Address

    1.Click the 'Windows Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' on any system connected to the similar network as your Epson printer.
    2.Double-click the 'Printers and Faxes' option and then find the Epson printer that you want to configure a static IP address for in the printer list.
    3.Right-click on the Epson printer from the list and choose the 'Properties' option.
    4.Click the 'Ports' tab and find the printer to configure a static IP address. Click on the printer to select it.
    5.Click on the vertical bar between Description and Port and shift it to the right to expand the Port column. Find the Epson printer's IP address under the 'Port' column, which is a series of numbers divided by, resembles and periods 192.168.1.2.
    Configure Static IP Address

      1.Open up your favorite Internet browser on the system connected to the similar network connection as your printer for which you need to set up a static IP address.
      2.Input the printer's IP address into your browser address bar. Click the 'Enter' button.
      3.Enter your printer login information. If it's not password-protected, enter 'admin' text into the 'Username' box and leave the password field vacant. Click the 'OK' button, followed by the 'IP Configuration' tab to sign into the Epson wireless printer settings page.
      4.Find the 'IP Address Configuration' or 'TCP/IP' section and adjust the value from 'Auto' to 'Manual' or 'Static.'
      5.Input the static IP address that you need to allocate to the Epson wireless printer into the provided boxes. It forces the network to assign the selected IP address to the Epson printer every time it tries to connect to the computer.
      6.Click the 'Save' button to apply the settings and close the browser.
      Additional Tips:

      Configuring a static IP address for the Epson wireless printer is not a complicated process if you are a tech-savvy user.

My X46 only turns on by the remote but when it does turn on it only goes to the Sceptre screen then powers off again. When I shut it off the night before there was a static shock when I hit the power...


That little shock has between 500 to 21,000 volts. Sensitive transistors and microchips definitely get damaged permanently from static electricity.

MY EPSON FX1180 CONTINUOUSLY BEEPS, SOMETIMES 1 BEEP, 2 BEEPS AND SOMETIMES EVEN 3 BEEPS. THE PAUSE LIGHT ALSO STAYS ON WHEN THIS OCCURS. WHAT CAN I DO TO RESOLVE??


There are several sensors and switches that could be faulty or obstructed. Make sure cover is closed - would give a "cover open" indication. Check for paper stuck inside - would give a "paper jam" indication. Especially if you have ever printed labels, you may have to dismantle a bit to clear out gummy residue that acts as a paper catcher.

PS 2 shocked me when I was turning it off. Now it won't turn on.


When you experienced that shock you may have inadvertenly sent an electro static discharge to the circuitry inside the ps2 which would cause it to stop working.
 If it is fairly new return it to the store you purchased it let them know whar happened and usually they will exchange the item for you.
