Epson RX500 won't turn on

I have had my printer about 3 years. I used is off and on. Before we moved I was having a problem turning on the printer. It would start to come on but then turn off. I tried the On, Load/eject, color, b/w, stop recommendation. I think it worked once and then went back to it's originial problem. I moved over the summer, unpacked the printer last night and it was working again. When I tried to turn it on this morning it had the same problem. I tried the On, load, color b/w, stop option again but to no avail. I did run the Epson's website to run it through the troubleshooting recommendations but nothing helped. Help! I'm ready to toss this thing!

    I am having the same problem, and mine can't be because it's worn out. Though we purchased this product a couple of years ago, we're just opening the box and trying to use it for the first time. I called Epson and they told me it was a "hardware failure" and it should go to a service center. Oh, well, I was hoping for an easy fix too, darn it!

Sorry to say, if there is no power - then that's it! Nothing else you can do other than replacing the unit. To be honest, a 3-year lifespan out of any inkjet printer is typical.

Need to remove queue error from Dell PC & Epson RX 500 printer


I would uninstall all versions of the printer and reboot the PC. Check that no remnants of the printer software are left on the PC and then re-install the printer. Use the CD that came with the printer when installing.

A child moved the head in my Epson Stylus Printer


Turn the printer off -- listen for noise as the head should move to its "parking" position.

Turn the printer on, and listen for noise.

If none, then the mechanics that move the head are broken.

Is the printer still under manufacturer's warranty -- although the warranty may _not_ cover child-inflicted breakage.

Scanner error


Press the On button to turn off the Stylus Photo RX500. Unlock the transportation lock. Make sure that all packaging materials have been removed. Turn on your Stylus Photo RX500 again. If the error message still appears, call Epson so they can replace your printer.
Goodluck.

Cannot get LCD screen to show Replace Ink message


try this

1. Make sure your unit is powered and not printing.

2. Press the SETUP button and then use the select arrows until you see REPLACE INK, then press the COLOR COPY button. The ink cartridges will move to the replacement position.

3. Lift up the unit's cover, to access the ink cartridges.

4. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, and lift it out of the printer.

5. Before removing the new cartridge from it's package, shake the cartridge 4-5 times. Do not shake the cartridge once it has been removed from the cartridge holder.

6. Lower the new cartridge into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place. Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, as you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

7. Repeat steps 4-6 for any other ink cartridges that require replacement.

8. Once complete, please lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus RX500 begins charging the ink delivery system.

The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus RX500 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on steady. At this point press COPY to move back to COPY mode.

Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus RX500 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus RX500 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
