Someone at SuperUser contacted Epson and was told to turn off the WiFi router (break connection), then disable Google Cloud Printing. That had mixed results.
Others found it easier to disable WiFi on the printer, then disable GCP.

    I have the same problem with my Epson WF-2530. The only thing that has gotten it to stay on for any time at all is disabling the Wi-Fi. But I need to have it on Wi-Fi to print!
    I tried going to my printer's IP address to disable Google Cloud Print but my printer won't stay on long enough for me to suspend or delete it. Is there another way?

    I managed to disconnect it from GCP through the IP address in one of my many attempts while the printer was looping. Disabled Wi-Fi so the printer would stay on, then I was able to restore default settings. Turned Wi-Fi on and I was able to print. Thanks so much! I also did a little reading on SuperUser to get more info. I appreciate the help.

The printer was working fine, then I printed a test print and it was very faded. All the cartridges were almost empty except 1. I replaced all the cartridges. It shows me they are all full, but when

Hi Sharon,

This may be an error. Shutdown the computer and re-seat cartridges to be sure they are connecting to the cartridge carriages properly. Once cartridge replacement procedure completes, close all the access panels.

Now shut off the power to the printer by unplugging it or by turning off the power bar it's plugged into. Don't use the printer's power switch!

Now, plug the printer back in. Reboot your computer. And then, turn on the printer and let it complete the initialization process.

Hope it will help.

Epson expression xp 600 error code 0xEA when setting up

I had the same problem today. I opened the printer below the scan bed, where you install the ink cartridges and there was a piece of packaging material that got left in that while I unpacked. I removed that and the 0XEA error was gone. I was sure the problem was nothing to do with the cartridge installation as it was the initial setup of the printer and cartridge installation was the next step based on the user guide. I was getting this error on initialization after setting the region, date and time.

How do i eject the ink carrier?

hi there,

  1. Look at the Epson printer's LCD screen to see the ink levels for each cartridge. If your cartridge is completely empty, simply press the "Color" button. If your cartridge has a low ink level, press "Setup". Hold down the button on the upper left side of your LCD screen until the words "Replace Ink" appears, then press the "Color" button.
  2. Wait until you see the words "Open the scanner" on the LCD screen. Then lift open the printer top by pulling up on the side grips next to the scanner unit. Make sure that the scanner lid remains closed. The ink cartridge holder should move to the far right of the printer.
  3. After the cartridges have completely stopped moving, pull the cover of the ink cartridge holder up and toward you. Press in the tab of the cartridge you need to replace. Lift the cartridge straight up to pull it out of the holder.
  4. Unwrap the replacement cartridge and insert it securely into the holder. Press straight down until the cartridge snaps into place.
  5. Close the cartridge holder cover and make sure it clicks into place. Close the scanner unit and wait while the printer charges the new replacement cartridge. Wait until the word "Charging" disappears from the LCD screen before using your printer.
Do not turn off your Epson printer while the "Charging" message is still on the LCD screen because this may cause your inks to not fully charge. Turn off your printer only if there has been no response for over five minutes.
Clean up any ink spills with soap and warm water.

Replacement ink cartridge: Black (T048120); Cyan (T048220); Magenta (T048320); Yellow (T048420); Light Cyan (T048520); or Light Magenta (T048620)

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

Connecting wi-fi on Epson SX600FW

I hada the same problem. I used the settings on the actual printer rather than through the software to input the information it needed and It works fine now. I was able to set it up on my husbands laptop without any problems, I just added his laptop through installing the software on his laptops as it had picked up the signal and was showing in the Network and sharing centre on Windows Vista premium. Hope this helps. I think you need to take the wire out now and now load it as wireless. You need to use the wire first to connect then take it out to connect to the wirelss network. My router is a Sky router.
