Question about Epson Stylus Color 800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Plugged in new (used) printer to my PC (XP Pro). Sounds and acts like it is printing. Print is not visible.

This is the 3rd printer that I've purchased and all have the same problem. I've finally come to the conclusion the problem is NOT with the printer but probably with my computer(s). I'm able to complete head and nozzle cleaning but when I try to print the page it still is still not visible. The printer acts like it is printing and sounds like it is printing but a blank sheet of paper comes out. I've tried this latest printer on 2 different computers, one O/S is 2000 AND the other XP Pro but same thing happens. There must be a driver problem somewhere and I would like to start all over from scratch. But don't know what or where to scratch. Thanks for the help in advance. Dennis

Remove the software, correctly using the Epson uninstall feature. Re boot. Come off line Disable anti virus. Run the CD and do exactly as prompted. Espon is a very fussy installer.

I have a Dell Laser Printer 3110cn. I'm getting an error, 016-317, please restart printer on the screen. How do I fix this? Thanks, Sharon

I have the same problem. I tried everything I found on the forums (Google search for error 016-317) and finally ended up calling Dell support. Technician arrived at the conclusion that I needed a new system board - $350 for the board and $110 for the technician to come out and fix it.
I am looking for a cheaper mother system board and and hoping, in my search, I come up with another, cheaper, solution. Good luck to you.

Screen reads no cartridge when there is a full cartridge in the printer

This is a pretty common item, usually for HP printers however I've also seen this with non-HP printers. They REALLY want you to use genuine HP or Dell ink/toner in their printers since they make lots of money on consumables. That being the case, there is a chip on most original (OEM) toner cartridges that tells the printer that its a genuine cartridge. If you purchase aftermarket/remanufactured/3rd party toner to save a few dollars, they frequently don't have these chips, however other than that they work just fine.
If you have purchased a Staples/Office Max or some other non Dell branded toner, that's likely what happened. My suggestion is to live with this minor annoyance and just wait until the print begins to get lighter in color. THAT will be your indication that its about time to change the toner.
If you get this same issue with a new Dell branded toner, then you may want to try to find this chip and use a pencil eraser to carefully clean the electrical contacts on the toner cartridge. That may help the printer read the cartridge chip easier.
Hope this helps! Best of luck!

Paper jam all the time

I've got the same problem but with envelopes. Every time I want to print envelopes the printer jams. It happens at least every 3rd or 4th envelope? Any suggestions? I wonder if I have the tray setup properly?

I know it sounds obvious, but have you tried changing the phone cord? Try taking your normal phone, plug it into that outlet and seeing if you have a dial-tone.

2004 toyota highlander -

Most dealers will not perform this service, as they become the "final stage manufacturer", and what that means is THEY would be responsible for any claims (liability) that may arise from an accident. Toyota does NOT recommend adding seats, nor do they recommend changing seat types (buckets vs bench). Note that the vehicle is designed with the specific seating positions in mind. To add a 3rd row seat, you would also have to install the proper seatbelts, and secure the 3rd row seats in a fashion that meets NHTSA specifications.
In short, and I apologize for this, please refrain from doing it.

It could be that the interface on the IPod is bad or the IPod cable is bad. I would try another cable to see if that fixes the problem.
