1)Make sure your cartridges are installed.
2)Unplug the power to the printer and wait about 20 seconds
3)Press and hold the # and 3 keys (while unplugged)
4)Plug the power back in (you should see a reset message on the machine)
5)Release the # and 3 keys and follow the prompts

Printer wont print


Turn the printer on. Remove the cartridges. Gently clean the electric contacts on the cartridges and the cartridge carrier. Put the cartridges back in. If the light is still flashing, and your printer won't print, one of your cartridges is faulty. I suggest you go to the refill shop and consult them which cartridges needs a replacement.
Does any message appears on your monitor when you try to print something? Usually, a message saying "problem with black/color cartridge" or something similar, that's why I am asking.

Changing color cartridge on my epson stylus color 980 printer.


If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the instructions below:

To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement, please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.

Red light flashing - Low ink
Red light solid - Out of ink

1. Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.
2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was replaced first) press the cleaning button once).
8. Press the INK (Cleaning) button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

You will need to perform the following steps to find out which cartridge is defective:


1. With the printer turned ON, open the front cover and remove both cartridges from the printer.
2. Power the printer OFF and unplug the power cable for 30 seconds. Plug the power cable back in and turn ON the printer.

{
1. Make sure the printer is in “Copy Mode.”
2. Press the “Menu” button once.
3. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Copies”.
4. Press the left arrow button once. The screen will display “Copy Menu: Tools”.

}

If the printer has detected a "Cartridge Missing" error, then please follow the steps given below:

1. Turn the power OFF.
2. Open the front cover.
3. Turn the power back ON. The print cartridge carrier should move to the install position located in the middle of the printer. If it does not, close and reopen the cover:
4. Reseat both cartridges in the printer and check for the error.
5. If the error still displays, then remove the color print cartridge.
6. Close the cover.
7. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the color cartridge has short-circuited.
8. However, if you continue to get an error, repeat steps 1-3, and then go to step 9.
9. Remove the black print cartridge and reinsert the color cartridge.
10. If there is no error indicated by flashing lights, the black cartridge has short-circuited.
11. If you continue to receive an error in both cartridge scenarios, both print cartridges have short-circuited.

Won't print says its busy


You need to clean NVRAM on Lexmark X7550 printer. Please follow the steps given below:
1. Power "Off" the All-In-One.
2. Press and hold the number button and turn the All-In-One back on. Press and hold the "Color Start" button and the "Check" button at the same time and turn the printer ON.
3. Release both the buttons once the printer is ON.

3. Press "Down" arrow button to go to the "Maintenance" menu entry. Press "Check" button.

4. Press "Down" arrow button until you reach "Manufacturers Test." Press "Check" button.

5. Press "Down" arrow button until you reach "Clear NVRAM." Press the "Check" button. The printer will restart by itself.

6. You will be prompted to go through setup again and to print an alignment page.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Turn the printer ON.
2. Press the down arrow button till the screen displays “Maintenance.“
3. Press the "Check" button.
4. Press the "Down arrow" button till the screen displays “Print Test Page.”
5. Press the "Check" button.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, please try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let us know.

If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, please let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Print cartridge missing


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier.

Next, try this printer self-test by following the steps given below:

1. Please turn OFF the printer.
2. Press and hold the "Color copy" button.
3. Now, turn ON the printer.
4. Once you see "0" on the display, release the "Color copy" button.
5. Press the Up arrow button until "2"appears on the display.
6. Press the "Black copy" button to start the self test. Once the page has printed, the printer will stop printing.

The self-test should at least print out a set of either black or color bars, if not both (if you have a printer with both color and black installed simultaneously). Should this test fail, try it again without cartridges installed. If the self-test still fails to take paper in and make sounds like the carrier is moving across the paper, this is a hardware issue, and the printer will require service. If the self-test completes without any cartridges installed, run the self-test again with the color cartridge installed by itself. (If you have both black and color cartridges, after this test, run the test again with just the black cartridge installed.) If you find that either cartridge causes the self-test to fail, please let me know.


If the self-test prints, but has lines or smudges or other print quality issues, let us know. This includes any print quality issues, we need to know if the problems you have with your black or color are based in the printer, or communications with your computer, or the computer's software.

If the self-test prints your test bar(s) clearly, the printer hardware is not at fault.

Press the RESUME button to feed the paper. Continue with the following steps, if the paper does not feed. 2. Turn the printer off. 3. Open the top cover of the printer. 4. Make sure that paper is not jammed in the printer. 5. Lift the right black rectangular paper sensor (located in the middle of the printer just below the silver rod on which the cartridge carriage slides). 6. Make sure that nothing is stuck under the paper sensor (you can blow under the sensor to remove dust). 7. Close the top cover of the printer. 8. Turn the printer on. 9. Try printing again. cause --The printer was waiting for you to insert paper and then did not print. Solution Press the RESUME button to eject the printed page into the OUT tray. cause --Printer does not sense paper in paper tray. Solution 1. Check to see if there is paper in the paper tray. 2. If there is paper, remove the paper. 3. Make sure that the paper width and paper length adjusters are set for the correct paper size. 4. Load paper in the paper tray. 5. Press the RESUME button. cause --The RESUME light blinks when the computer is restarted or turned on.

The printer should be turned on after the computer is turned on and turned off before the computer is turned off or shut down. Press the RESUME button to clear the printer and get it to the normal state. cause--Printer detects a faulty, missing, incompatible, or improperly installed print cartridge. Solution 1. Open the top cover of the printer. The RESUME light will flash until it is closed. 2. Pull the top of the cartridge towards you until the cartridge unsnaps from the cradle. NOTE : Make sure not to touch the copper-colored contact tape on the back of the print cartridge. 3. Click here (bpa00585) (in English) to check that you have the correct cartridges. 4. If you have the correct cartridges, then pick up the black cartridge. Notice that it has an arrow on the top. 5. Hold the cartridge so the arrow on the top is pointing towards the printer. 6. Tilt the cartridge slightly towards you. 7. Keep the cartridge tilted slightly towards you as you insert the cartridge into the right cradle. 8. Push the cartridge firmly forward into an upright position. You will hear a click when the cartridge is firmly in place. 9. Pick up the color (called tri-color) cartridge.

You will hear the sound of the cartridge cradle as it moves to the right side of the printer. cause --The print cartridge contacts are dirty and the printer does not recognize the print cartridge. Solution 1. Open the top cover of the printer. 2. Remove the print cartridges. 3. Clean the copper-colored contact points on the cartridges with a damp, lint-free cloth. (Distilled water is recommended. Tap water might contain contaminates that could damage the cartridge.) NOTE: Do not wipe the nozzle end of the cartridge or touch the silver-colored nozzle plate on the bottom of the cartridge. 4. Turn off the printer. 5. Unplug the power cord from the printer. 6. Clean the carriage contacts on the back wall of the ink cartridge carriage with a damp, lint-free cloth. 7. Use a dry, lint-free cloth to remove the moisture from the contacts.
