Question about Epson RIP Station 5000 Series II (C850072HA) RIP station

1 Answer

I have an Epson RIP Station 5000 that I use with my Stylus 5000Pro printer. When i boot up the rip it goes through its usual start up and when it gets to the Window display that says "Fiery LX Idle" the green light keeps on flashing like it is busy. A few minutes later it will start the reboot process again and just keeps doing the same thing over and over.

This must be a prboelm because of improper powering down of the system. Remove all the plugged up stuffs behind and switch it on just with power cable after keeping it idle for some time.

    Perform a total reset of the firmware. This is surely a software problem.

    The firmware will be available from Epson sutomer support. They dont have it in their website.

STEVE you have to print it as a tiled image. there is an update on the epson website for this issue. basicly anything over 90" you have to tile as two images split in half with no border in between if that makes sense. they explain it well in the update. when its something 120" x 36" lets say i run the set up at 36 x 60 then go to the page set up and there should be a box for tie image when you preview it again it shows the tiled image put back to back. you also have to tell it toreverse the print. i use adobe cs2 illustrator and it works well.

Epson Stylus Pro 9880 Does Not Print

Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer Lexmark T630

The error message is normally caused by either plugging accessories into the rip controller board or the engine board. In some models the board may be conbined. Or invalid or illegal commands sent from the printer. Try upgrading the firmware first. If that does not work you you may have a bad board.
