Re: printing

Jess, is this printer new or out of warranty?

If it is new, just call Epson and raise the issue with them. It sounds like you have a problem with the printer that requires action from Epson. If your computer states the machine is not ready, then something may be faulty.

Check also in the manual that you have not entered a "print photo from card" mode which makes the printer wait for a card to be inserted.

Epson r240 fault e90


  1. Clear all print jobs waiting to be printed from the computer before turning off the printer. To fully clear all print jobs you will need to restart the computer. See the following Related Articles if you require help with this step:
  2. Once you have cancelled the print queue and restarted the computer, hold down the button-paper_trash.gif Paper/Bin/Cancel button or dx4400stopbutton.jpg Stop / Clear button for 3-5 seconds.
  3. Power off the printer/All-In-One. After it has powered off, also turn it off at the power point or disconnect its power cable, if possible.
  4. Open the printer lid/scanner unit to make sure any tape securing the ink cartridge holder/print head has been removed. Some printers have a plastic block which helps prevent the ink cartridge holder from moving during transit - make sure that this has been removed/is not in place.
  5. Check for any foreign objects inside the printer that may be causing an obstruction to the print head. Check for torn pieces of paper around the front of the printer and the ink cartridge holder/print head. Carefully remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path and inside the printer by hand.
  6. Check that the ink cartridge holder/print head is positioned on the right side of the printer (as you look at it from the front). If it is positioned on the left, see the following Related Article: How can I resolve the issue where the print head positions itself on the left / does not return to its home position?
  7. Close the printer cover/scanner unit. Press the On button to power on the product. If the error message still appears, contact your dealer or EPSON.

I can not get the printer to print

I am assuming you are trying to print from a computer, not a photo memory card (SD Card).

Try the following things:

- get the manual and install CD if you have it
- use the manual or the menu on the printer to print a test page (if that works then it is probably not the printer)
- make sure the USB-B cable is connected
- Start the Print Manager software on your computer (install it from the CD if it is not installed already, download the drivers from on-line if you do not have the CD)
- Use the Print Manager to print a test page (If this works, then we know the cable works)
- in Control Panel under Printers select the Epson Stylus as the DEFAULT PRINTER
- from the application (MS Word, Photoshop, etc.) try printing and verify that the Epson is the selected printer

If this does not work please provide further details about what hardware and applications you are using and what you are trying to print.

Good luck. Bry

How to print photos on dx4850 from memory card


DX4850 is not designed to print photo's standalone; epson creativity suite software is required at this link

Once installed (along with printer drivers), a memory card may be inserted into the printer, to be followed by a notification from computer that a new drive is included in the system.

In case of ms-windows, there are two ways to print a document:

1. Select drive (under My Computer) and right click desired file and just select print.
2. Run epson easy photo print software and select file(s) to print and the package will guide you till printout.

As simple as that.

good luck
