Question about Epson Stylus Photo R800 InkJet Printer

Carriage stuck in charge position

I tried using continuous ink supply system for about a fortnight then I had a message that said "parts inside the printer are near the end of their service life". I took that system out and replaced it with compatible inks that I have faith in. The ink heads required cleaning then the darn thing stuck and still is. I took out the cartridges. The printer is a year old next month but Epson will have nothing to do with it as I used ciss and compatibles.

    The carriage is stuck in, I think,the position it would rise to if it was charging or cleaning the print heads. I will certainly try all you suggest over this weekend and try to obtain a rsscue kit.

The "Parts Inside Your Printer..." message related to the Ink Over Flow Protection Error and means the internal counter within the firmware has reached it's pre determined limit. You will need to reset the counter within the firmware with a special bit of software. You will also need to clean out the waste ink pads. You should be able to get a Rescue Kit for this problem from http//www.TheServiceManualShop.com Regarding the carriage - in what way is it stuck? If it is in it's home position, you should be able to release it by pushing the head lock back with your finger. It is located (I think) just to the left of the carriage on the vertical rail. A small white piece of plastic protruding from the rail. You may need to push the head to the RIGHT a little. If the head is stuck elsewhere and will not move in either direction by hand then look to see if the drive belt has jumped off the pulley. Also look to see that the head lock has not come forward and is preventing the carriage from returning home. Move the head to the left end (if you can) and look near the home position for the white piece of plastic protruding from the rail. Let me know if you still have problems

Epson R320 "General Error" message - unable to clear


If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Epson r220 carriage jammed


Had the same problem.
Took alot of work but I fixed it.
Frist thing you need to know that error means your ink waste pad is full. Its a $75.00 to replace but there is a work around it.
You will need this free app. SSC service utitlty.
http://inkjetprinterhelp.us/epsonSSC.html Its a great app.
Instrusctions are on the website there.
You will also have to Open the access panel on the rear of the printer (remove screw) and look inside carefullly with a flashlight. You will see a tube (down and to your left) coming from the cleaning pump and it will have an open end on it. This is the tube that delivers ink to the waste pad.
Use a piece of coat hanger wire or equivalent, and fish out this piece of tube. Bring it to the outside of the printer, thru the access panel.
Find yourself a suitable container (Tupperware or a plastic cup or jar) that is not too tall. Put the tube into this container and secure the tube and container so they won’t come apart or lose connection if the printer is moved.
If you wish you can make a hole or notch in the access panel cover so it can be replaced.

Epson R320 carriage jammed


The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly.  Unplug the printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink cartridge out.
 
Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before applying the power.
 
Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as some remnant of paper.
