Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I have an Epson WF-4630 that is acting up, I suspect dud firmware. Does anybody else have the same problem, starting last few days. Is there is a key combo to force a factory reset at startup? Thanks!

Printer is turning on - does all the normal things and then waits a while and resarts on its own. It can be seen by the PC, but nothing will print in the ten seconds it stays on. looks like dud firmware release over last few days. Cannot find info on any startup keys that could be used.

I had the same problem so went to and downloaded the relevant driver. I needed the vista one. As suggested above just replace the old one with the new one. The zip file I downloaded also had instructions on how to do that.

SOURCE: Samsung ML2551N: Initialization problem on startup

Replace all electrolytic capacitors in power supply section on mainboard. caused by poor quality lower voltage caps being used in powersupply. Problem will reoccur every 2 to 3 years if 105oC caps are not used. If mainboard is replaced with new mainboard problem will reoccur within same timeframe. Fix old mainboard using higher voltage and higher temp caps and problem will be gone for good.

SOURCE: EPSON PRINT MONITOR pops up on startup!

Hello I think I might have a way to solve this problem. I had a similar issue, and it was caused by having a file in the print queue that would not print.
Open Print and Fax Preference, then open the Print Queue button. Highlight any files in the queue and delete them.
Hope this works for you

Resetting factory settings on my epson wf 4630. forgot passwords

When you reset to the factory settings means it will be exactly as it was when you bought it. No programs and no documents. It is starting over from scratch and is really a big headache. Always make backups so you can restore the information you need, but you will also need all the original software programs so everything can be reinstalled. BIG JOB!

Ho do you reset the ink levels on an Epson WF-4630 (T7861)?

Ink levels are set by chips on the ink carts. You may be able to reset the chips with a "chip resetter", but that's not really recommended. Get refillable carts with automatic resetting chips...

If you are lucky, the 0xF4 error indicates a foreign object (a scrap of paper) in the gears. That would translate to PF driver mechanism overload. Another cause would be a contaminated encoder scale. Fixing either of these will require you to disassemble the printer. Here are some tips for taking apart the printer: .

However, the 0xF4 error could mean that the encoder board or the motor have failed. These errors can only be fixed by a service technician. If your printer is under warranty, you should call for service. Otherwise decide if you want to risk taking it apart and finding that you can't fix this error. It may be cheaper to replace the unit.

I hope this helps.
