1. Make sure the printer is turned on.
2. Make sure the document cover is closed, then closed, then open the scanner.
(Do not open the scanner when the document cover is open).
3. Press and release the ink button. The 'On' and 'Ink' lights flash.
If one of the cartridges is low or empty the printer moves that cartridge to the 'ink out' mark. Go to step 4.
If no cartridges are low or empty the ink cartridge holder moves to the ink replacement position. Go to step 5.
4. Pree the 'ink' button again.
If more than one cartridge is empty or low the next cartridge moves to the 'ink out' mark.
Once the printer identifies all the empty or low ink cartridges the print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover, squeeze the tab at the back of the empty cartridge and lift it out.
6. Before you open the new cartridge package shake it four or five times and remove it from the package .
(Don't remove or tear the label on the cartridge otherwise ink will leak out) .
(Don't touch the green chip on the front of the ink cartridge - you could damage the cartridge).
7. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down till it clicks into place.
8. Replace any other cartridges that need replacing.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10. Close the scanner.
11. Press the 'ink' button. The printer starts charging ink and the 'on' light starts flashing . This takes about a minute . When it's finished the 'on' light stops flashing and remains on and the 'ink' light goes out.

"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons", then hold down the ink button for approx. half a minute until the printer lights flash again then release it. That resets the printer.”

The answer is simple: ALL your inks need replacing if only ONE is empty. Class action lawsuits have been fought and won against Epson because of this "design flaw". Throw out your printer, that's the only real solution.

TONYCRVTTE and NOVGUNS

Have a look at:

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/sc86__/sc86__ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

If it's a paper jam, look for and remove paper in feed system. If no paper, is the print head properly parked under the right-hand end of the cover? If not, you may have stuck or detached parking mechanism. Come back to me if this is the case for further help.

If it's "internal error", it usually means the waste ink pads need changing. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation. However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C86 Service Manual". You will often find them
for sale very cheaply on E-Bay.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

Try downloading HPs PhotoSmart

If you have trouble getting PhotoSmart, you can find plenty of scanner software for free

However.... You will need to remove your Epson software from you computer before loading other software.

My Epson cx 4200 won't print because each attempt the paper jam light flashes and the printer stops trying to print. The paper is being pulled into the machine un-evenly.


It's highly likely that you either have a foreign object down the paper feed tray or the guides are incorrectly set...

Hopefully one of these will solve this:

1. Remove any paper, tape down the scanner lid and
gently tip your printer upside down and give it a GENTLE shake to see if anything drops out. This is really only something I'd recommend for someone strong and careful so take your time.

2. Check for any jammed foreign objects such as pens, paper clips, etc...that have fallen down into the printer. The place to look is wherever the paper seems to be bunching up most as it goes through

3. Make sure you're inserting the paper, with the guides set to the correct width and not loose. The guides help correct any issues with skew as the paper is pulled in, so this may correct any other issues.


Hope one of these helps..

Ink cartridge changed but computer will not recognize it has ink


Please try the following in an attempt to resolve this issue:

1. Make sure the unit is turned on, and not printing. The POWER light should be on, but not flashing.

2. Lower the OUTPUT tray, and lift the scanner portion to access the ink cartridges.

3. Press and release the INK button.

4. Open the CARTRIDGE COVER. Pinch the front and back tabs of the first cartridge, and remove it from the printer.

5. Place it back into the holder. Push it down gently into the holder, until the cartridge clicks into place.

6. Repeat steps 4-5 for each cartridge. Close the CARTRIDGE COVER once all of the necessary ink cartridges are re-seated.

7. Carefully lower the scanner, until it clicks into place

8. Press and release the INK button.

The ON light flashes and the printer makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the ON light stops flashing and stays on steady.

CAUTION: Never turn off the printer while the ON light is flashing, unless the printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

My epsonstylus cx4200 wont print with black ink.


Please ensure that you have removed (Completely) all yellow tape on the top of the cartridge.If it is not completely removed a vacuum can form preventing the flow of ink.

Run a few cleaning cycles.

Try a local print test...

As for thr G4 sorry but I can help you except to power off all devices, power up and reboot.

Epson CX4200


I just Fixed the error of All Lights Flashing on my epson cx4200 printer.
Solution: I Totally unpluged the printer from 110 power source
then waited 3 minutes, then press the On button and let the printer run thru its normal noises during start cycle.
Originally I tried to just turn printer off with the off/on button but this did not ix the problem.
So make sure you TOTALLY disconnect the printer from the 110 AC power source.
Hope this helps.
