    did you ever remove the glass to clean it.

    Reason I ask is that I had worked on an all in on that stopped working on startup the lamp would warm up and jug and then shut down and have an error message relating to a jammed head.

    I unpluged it removed the glass and moved the head by hand it felt a little stiff and then it was free I put it together and plugged it in and watched the head move back in position as this was happening I figured on seeing if by constanly pressing the number pad and the statr scan button I might confuse the programming to a reset. It was a last ditched effort did not think I fixed anything at first. To my supprise it ran with no error messages. Technical no susessful yea it hs been 2 weeks now and it is still working OK

Epson Stylus 1200 lights indicate carriage jam


This means that your Epson printer has come to its end of life. In short, Epson wants you to retire your printer and buy a new one. Your Epson printer may be in good shape which is often the case. But Epson has this build-in "feature" which they want you to buy a new one.

Scanner Powers up - does not intiate, cannot be accessed by PC


Power everything down, computer and scanner. Make sure your scanner is connected to the AC wall outlet, and to the pc. Then turn on your computer. Reinstall the driver and software by following this link http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=kVFQIoh3k1nuobYrVg0U002FnSoPZ+wxlW6UdEWrYhTx6DwU003D&tc=6 And download the latest update (2007) and you should be good to go

Red light error


OFF the printer.open the top cover whole scanner unit .then look at the black base where usually cartridge moves when the printer is ON when you give printouts..press that black base and it will move little bit down .that whole black base comes little bit up due to some reason and when the cartridge holder moves from left to right for its internal allignments/adjustments it clashes that part somewhere and make such noices.and gives the service error..just press that whole 7- 8 inches base where the cartridge moves slowly ,carefully and firmly.then ON the printer and check.do it again if it does not becomes ok after first time.

rate the solution if it helps
thanks.

CanoScan 5000F - Scanner bar is stuck


hi all;
i fixed it by taking the thing apart, pushing the scanner head (the block that is stuck-- that normally moves) back to the starting position. Make sure its snug at the end, a little bit off and you'll be putting it have to take it apart and back together a second time. There's a mirco swtich in there somewhere, and you need to make sure its pressed...
reconstruct, and hey presto, a working scanner! this also worked for my epson 1250 that got stuck once.
Easy as a section of gateaux.

If the unit is in warranty, get Epson out to it. If not check the simple things like making sure the head lock is not on. Look to see if the scanner head starts to move at all when you power up the unit. If the head does not move at all or makes an unusual noise, chances are the unit is complaining that the head is stuck or requires too much effort to move it. Other possibilities include a communication error between scanner and main board of the SPC or SPC and your computer - indicates broken connection or bad USB cable. POssibly a fault with the mainboard of the SPC itself. Error ?Cause *Remedy Scanner error ? Lamp has burnt out. * Replace the scanner lamp. ? Power is turned on without unlocking the scanner. * Unlock the CR. ? The scanner carriage is interfering with any other part. * Remove the obstacle. * Replace the scanner carriage unit.
