Question about Computers & Internet

Epson Photo Stylus 2200 won't respond. I have the new Mac 10.6 driver from Epson installed, but the printer is not recognized. I tried to change the ink but the ink cartridges won't center to give me access.

    The printer connects fine. I've installed the printer driver. Its on a network of all Macs running Snow Leopard - Mac OS 10.6.


    I don't know why the red Paper light continues to blink, even though it has paper. Also, the printer ink will not move to the position for replacing the ink when I press the ink button for 3 seconds or more as indicated in the owners manual.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. There are two step-by-step procedures to resolve the issue—

Procedure 1

  1. Turn off the printer and ensure that the print head is at its home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Power off the printer at the wall or by removing the power cable for at least 20 seconds;
  3. While you restore power to the printer at the wall socket or by reinserting the cable, if the lights come back on straight away, the printer’s power switch was ‘on’ - switch it off and return to step 1;
  4. Hold down the paper-feed button and the button with the ink-drops next to it, and then turn on the printer, still holding the buttons down;
  5. When the paper-out LED flashes, release the buttons;
  6. Press and hold the Cleaning button, until several lights flash - this will take a few seconds then release the button;
  7. The printer will now attempt to reset, including resetting the EEPROM memory and running a short (about 10 seconds) cleaning cycle.
Procedure 2
  1. Turn off the printer and ensure that the print head is at it’s home location and locked in place as normal;
  2. Hold down the paper feed button only;
  3. Turn on the printer;
  4. As the paper feed light starts flashing, release the button;
  5. Immediately hold down the ink-drops button for some 10-20 seconds or until the printer springs into life;
  6. Allow printer to complete its processing then turn it off for a few seconds and turn it again on.
By following the any one of the above step-by-step procedures, the printer will start printing normally.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Hi,

Do you get a prompt “ Found new hardware” when connecting to the computer.
If no the computer port or the printer is bad.
Try connect the printer to a different computer.

Let me know
Thanks
Smith
