Re: Dead R1800

There is no solution to this issue other than service or replacement. If in warranty I would contact Epson tech support directly.

Canon Pixma iP 6600D printing problem.. went to print a scanned document .... paper began to feed in askew from autopaper feeder . Printing process stopped. the process was repeated a couple more times...

To fix the paper feed problem, Clean / rub each roller with a damp cloth with a dab of detergent.
Check for paper residue , especially near the paper empty flag,
Then reset the printer:
First power off the printer. Next, while holding STOP/RESET button, power on the printer.
While holding POWER button, release STOP/RESET button. Then push STOP/RESET button twice.
Wait about 20-30 second until the LED shows "0?. Then push STOP/RESET button four times.
Finally push POWER button twice. Last step is to turn off the printer by pressing the POWER button one last time.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

R1800 Won't Power Up

Just check the power cord of your printer it maybe don't have any lost connection or change the power cord. If did not work also their was a problem of your powersupply. You need to bring it to the electronic center technician for the proper repair of the power supply.

Connected r1800 to mac, print browser page, blinking power light, no printing

Run a nozzle check to see if all inks are printing out. Turn printer off, then hold down the paper button ( top ), while holding it down, press and hold the power button. When you see the power light flashing green, release both buttons. It should print a nozzle check pattern. You should see 7 columns of different colored lines and one checkered board pattern. There should be no gaps and breaks on the lines. If pattern is no good, you need to do head cleaning.Press the ink button for 3 seconds. Power light will flash and print head will move. This will take one to two minutes. After it is complete ( power light turns solid green ) you need to do a nozzle check pattern to verify if there is improvement or If head cleaning needs to be repeated.

Epson R1800 Printer turns OFF

Here is my solution to your problem.
Power Failure is not reason here. I think you Epson have a problem inside the circuit board.
It has two output, the PRIMARY & SECONDARY Output, one of this are not function due to power or wattage failure.
I did encounter such problem but I open my printer and I see inside its nothing but the PCB Board have leak of one of my capacitor inside.
If this case is still comes out then better to check that with EPSON PRINTER Technician.
And about resetting EEPROM it useless.
At least this information give you such ideas why you have this kind of problem. Resolving such problem are not only on talk but let our hands do it also.
I tell you one way or another, careful of that maybe it has a short circuit. Good luck!

Hi my R1800 has 2 flashing red lights (top) and no power light. What can i do? MAria

It could be your ink tray has overflowed.
There is software which might help.

Install this program, set your printer model and the driver (Epson Stylus Photo R1800) when it starts up. Close the program, and it will minimize to the
tray on the taskbar - right click on the icon and goto "Protection Counter". Choose
"Reset Protection Counter". Choose "Yes" to the question about the waste ink pads,
then switch the printer off for 1 minute. This should cure the problem.

It might be worth a try

Paper and ink lights blinking - no power light flashing at all - can't do anything on our Epson R1800 printer... can you suggest something to try? have been doing a lot of head cleaning due to bad nozzle...

Try doing a printer check by doing the steps below. If it doesnt work, then try to call the printer manufacturer for more advanced solutions or information

  1. turn off the printer and disconnect it from computer
  2. place a plain sheet of paper
  3. press and hold down the paper feed button, then press and release the power button. Continue holding down the paper button until you see the power light flashes
  4. if it prints a test page it is working fine, the problem might be the computer settings, printer settings, software or printer application, or cables, otherwise the problem is the printer itself

My Epson R1800 keeps resetting itself

You have done all the usuall checks, but you may have a usb power problem, try the printer without any other usb peripheral in and see if it stays connected. If not, then the usb connection or workings in the printer may be faulty and keeps disconecting, hence the bing bong as it re connects to windows. You may have faulty hardware, leave the printer disconnected from usb and mains for 15 mins or so then try again.
