Question about Epson CX3810 Stylus Color All-In-One Printer

After printing a series of pages on both sides, when I took out the last page and reincerted it the printer stopped and all lights came on.

I have used this technic many times in the past.

    I found the problem, it is a broken plastic latch .

  • Jim Rawson May 14, 2015

    I was able to fix it, I pushed the plastic part and the coil portion of the spring back in place and then I cut a section of a toothpick and wedged it into the center of the coil part of the spring and the metal tab that supports the spring. This is holding the plastic part in place, and now the printer works.

So, did you get an error message? Did unplugging the printer get it working again?
How are you reinserting the paper?

SOURCE: Printer not Print data in English Language

Hi, you may want to reset/restore the Epson LX300 to default settings. This can be done by pressing down on the FONT button while powering on the printer. If done right the LX300 will print a test page with the firmware version. It is also possible that the drivers are corrupted. In Start, Printers & Faxes, delete the LX300 printer, restart your PC and then re-install via Add Printer. In some cases, defective parallel cable can also cause problems. Unfortunately the only sure way of checking is by replacing the printer/parallel cable with a known good/operation cable. If the printer would really be requiring service, a Service Manual is available at (http://www.eserviceinfo.com/index.php?what=search2&searchstring=DPA-300) Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up.

SOURCE: Auto cutter does not cut automatically

TM 220a and TM 220b should come with auto cutters
You have to unscrew the metal tab under the printer, you will find two sets of DIP switches. upper one is DWS 1 and the lower one is DWS 2. On DWS 2 you need to have jumper #2 ON. this enables or activates the auto cutter on printers. Good luck...

SOURCE: the printer only prints half a page then moves to next page and a

Before printing, the printer checks the paper size. If the paper edge guide is positioned incorrectly, the paper may be fed at an angle. If this happens, the bottom of the paper is therefore at an angle and not perpendicular with the paper feed rollers. This can result in the paper sensor not recognising the real page width as it can only detect a certain amount of the bottom of the paper sheet which is nearest to it.

If only part of the width of the paper is detected, the printer considers that the paper width is less than it actually is. To avoid printing on internal parts of the printer such as paper feed rollers, the printer automatically cuts the image to fit the detected paper width As this phenomenon depends on the paper feeding condition, it can be random.
Reload the paper and make sure it is loaded correctly. All the way to the right and the paper guide correctly adjusted.

Why is the light flashing on the right side


If the light flashing is the "light bulb like button" or the "Ready/Light" button, it means that either the printer is:

• The printer is busy receiving and processing data or printing.
• The printer is printing a directory, font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages.


If it's Busy:
• Wait for the message to clear.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel the print job.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.


If it's printing a directory, a font list, menu settings pages, or Print Quality Test Pages:
• Wait for the pages to print. The Busy message is displayed as the pages print. The Ready light is on when the
printing stops.
• Press and release Cancel to cancel printing.
• Press and hold Cancel to reset the printer.

    1. Turn on the HP PSC 1200 or 1300 series product.
    2. Disconnect the USB cable from the all-in-one.

      1. Press and hold Cancel .
      2. While holding Cancel , press On .
      3. When the Check Paper and Check Print Cartridge lights begin to blink simultaneously, release both buttons.
      4. Press Cancel again.
      5. Press Copies .
      6. Press Paper Type .
      7. Press Color Start Copy . The alignment page will begin printing. If the alignment page does not print, repeat the button-press sequence in this step.
    4. When the alignment page has printed, place the page face down on the scanner glass and press Scan . The alignment is complete when the On light stops blinking.
    5. Reconnect the USB cable.
CAUSE: This can occur if the cartridge alignment is canceled or times out without a valid print cartridge alignment stored in memory.

Last page of printing stops 3/4 through the page.


Try cleaning your heads with appropriate solution. Then, cancel all print jobs. Try again. If it does the same i would turn it off, inplug all the cables, replug all and turn on. Try again. If still no good, completely unistall printer then reinstall it. Try once more. Good luck
