Question about Epson Stylus Pro 3880 Inkjet Large Format Printer - 17in. - Color

1 Answer

Printer is way off centre

We recently moved the printer to have our house painted. I went to print my first image since then and it is printing WAY out of line. It is only printing the bottom 1/4 of the picture on the bottom part of the paper - as if the entire printer has been shifted way too far over. I did the printer head alignment but that has not seemed to work. Would love any help you can give me. Thank you so much.

SOURCE: Clogged printer heads

If you soak the head, you may as well bun the printer. So many people have wrecked their machines doing exactly what you are doing. If you force any liquid through the print head, you stand a really chance of blowing the piezo actuator and rendering the machine useless.

I assume you have been using non genuine ink cartridges, as these are usually the cause of most similar problems. Ever wonder why Epson do not make cleaning cartridges but all the compatible cartridge makers do? Running cleaning cycles with compatible carts can make the situation worse.

Take a look at my previous post about under head cleaning. You can find an example HERE. Get a set of genuine carts and put them in once you have completed the under head cleaning. In most cases this type of cleaning is sufficient to get most printer running again. If your nozzles are seriously clogged you may want to let the pads soak over night.

Avoid using a neat ammonia, the print head will not appreciate such a strong solution. An ammonia based cleaning solution would be more suitable.

Also bear in mind that if the pipes to the waste pads from the pump cap are clogged you may also loose some print quality and running cleaning cycles will have no affect as they rely on vacuum from the pump cap.

If you are going to use compatible carts, put a genuine set of carts in every second or third set. These will help clean out the solidified muck left by compatibles.

Try this and let us know how you fair.

Please confirm that the head cleanings were done using the most effective method listed below.

1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing.

NOTE: You cannot clean the print head if the any of the cartridges are expended. Replace the appropriate ink cartridge before proceeding.

2. Load letter size paper.

3. Click on START.

For Windows 95/98/ME: Click SETTINGS, PRINTERS, then right click on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PROPERTIES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows 2000: Click SETTINGS, PRINTERS, then right click on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows XP: Click CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS AND FAXES. Right click your EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. If this icon is not showing, select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS. Then right click the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows Vista: Click CONTROL PANEL, HARDWARE AND SOUND then PRINTERS. Note: these steps may vary depending on how Vista is setup. Right click on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

4. Click on the UTILITY or MAINTENANCE tab, then click on HEAD CLEANING.

5. Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the print head. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which time the printer makes some noise and the power light flashes. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing, unless the printer has not moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

6. When the power light stops flashing click PRINT NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN and then click NEXT.

7. If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.

8. If the situation continues after three cleaning cycles and nozzle checks, replace one of the affected ink cartridge(s).

9. Once the cartridge(s) has been replaced, please follow steps one through seven up to three times.

If the nozzle check still has gaps after you have run at least 3 consecutive cleaning cycles and replaced the affected ink cartridge(s), your printer will require service.

SOURCE: Lines on prints

Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant

I WANT TO PRINT MIRROR (IN REVERSE PRINTING) BUT THERE IS NO OPTION IN THE PRINTER. PLEASE IF ANY SOFTWARE DO YOU HAVE IN MIND FOR THE SOLUTION OF MIRROR PRINT ON HP 1020 PRINTER


go to your image and right click on it, click on "preview" once the preview screen is open look at the row of options (I"m assuming windows 7 op system here, but you can do this with XP too). anyway.look for the option "open" along the top, a row of choices will appears, choose "Paint" when paint opens you can see on the left an option to rotate, or flip your image, choose flip horizontal and you will now have the reverse image, save it to someplace you can find it and then it will print as you wish (reversed).

I have a C3530 MFP and it won't print because it says check toner cartridge black. Toner Sensor Error


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Toner sensor error is related to the agitator inside the toner cartridge, it occasionally falls out of its housing so it does not move the toner sensor which is the white plastic piece that moves up and down on the coloured handle, the toner sensors themselves see this white flag if it doesn’t move then the printer thinks the sensor is broken so toner sensor error is flagged and if the flag moves too quickly the machine thinks the toner is empty. To resolve the issue your printer is facing with please check that toner lock lever is in position and follow the following procedure---

Press the cover release and open the printer’s top cover fully. Make sure the Toner Cartridge in question is correctly positioned and the right hand clip is pushed back. While holding it by its top centre, lift the image drum, complete with its toner cartridge, up and out of the printer. On the Right hand side of the toner look for a sensor patch, make sure this is not dirty. If it is dirty clean it with a soft object such as cotton wool. Now look inside the printer opposite to where the sensor patch would sit. There is a black square with a sensor located inside and check that this is not dirty. Now replace the drum and toner, and close the printer cover. Try to print a test page and it will start printing normally.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee
