Communications error between Windows 8.1 computer and Artisan 835 scanner


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.

Printer error


Hi,

Here a few common problems that your Epson printer and ink cartridge can suffer from.

Improper Installation of Cartridges

A common Epson printer and ink cartridge problem! If you have changed the ink cartridges then you might just receive this error message. The message might state that the cartridge is not installed correctly in the printers. In such cases, re-install the cartridge in the correct manner. If the problem persists then it is advisable that you replace the cartridge as it might be defective. If you still get the same error message on installation of the replacement cartridge then its time that you clean the print head. You could do this yourself or could take it to a repair facility.

Printing Failure

Failure to print documents is yet another common problem with respect to Epson printers. The print heads of Epson printers are sensitive and this sensitiveness is the culprit behind such problems. If the print head is clogged or blocked you will have to unclog or unblock them. This can be done by using a special fluid that is available for just this purpose only. This fluid flushes the print head, and your printer is once again ready to print.

Communication Error

'Communication Problems' are yet another one of the common problems surrounding Epson printers. Once you give the print command you might be shown the message that there is a communication error between the printer and the computer. This means that there is the occurrence of a minor problem. One of the reasons for this problem could be the inappropriate selection of printers from the print options menu. Cable connections should also be checked. Another solution could be the re-installation of the driver of the printer.

Print Jobs that are Slow or Incomplete

These are problems that occur during an ongoing process. The printing might stop midway and then start again after some time. At times, the printing process will repeat itself several times and then finish printing the page. There are times when the page will finish printing, but you will find that it is an incomplete print. More often than not, this is not a printer related problem.

What might have happened is that the driver might have corrupted or a virus might have infected the computer; or a spyware might be affecting the working of the printing process. If such a problem occurs, the best solution would be to scan the computer for viruses and spyware. As can be seen these common Epson printers and Epson ink cartridge problems can be sorted out quite easily.



hope it helps..

Ink is out and communication error has occured?


Sounds suspiciously like a Windows problem to me. It may be worth trying to reinstall the printer. Delete the old one in 'Printers', and then reload from XP or Vista, or shove the printer CD-ROM in and reinstall.

My printer will not print


Do you get any kind of error messages i.e. failure to print document or communication error? If you were able to print before, this might have something to do with pending documents on your printer driver. Try to do the following:

click start -> control panel -> printers & faxes (windows xp) / printers (windows vista)

look for your printer icon and check what's the status that would be found underneath the name. It should indicate a number (which is supposed to be 0, meaning no documents on queue) and below that should be ready. You may right click the icon and click "Cancel all documents" if there's an option for that and/or right click again for the "Use printer online" option. Let me know if you're still having troubles.
