Question about Epson RX620 All-In-One InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not turn on

We had a lightning storm, and although the printer was unplugged from the wall, it was USB'd to the computer, which was plugged into an UPS PRO, which was also unplugged from the wall, BUT the modem was connected by a phone line to the UPS.... the telephone line was fried, and I found that everything in the house which plugged into a phone jack was toast even though everything is connected to surge protectors.
My question is, could the power switch for the Epson RX620 really have been destroyed by such a small connection... through an unplugged UPS, an unplugged computer, and a USB cable ???... or is it possible there is a reset button somewhere, or a fuse ??? do you know if I can replace some kind of power switching component myself ?? thank you for any assistance,
C. Oliver

Re: printer will not turn on

The UPS is unplugged from the power outlet but it is still connected to the modem

it is a lightning storm - and computer equipments & peripherals can only withstand very little amount of electricity

check your warranty status (warranty starts from the date of purchase) then call the vendor

My scanner stopped working yesterday. Tried everything and no luck. Its an MP830 and the printer works fine.

Did you have a storm or lightning? Try unplugging the power cable from the left rear of the machine (not the wall). I have had to do this on several occassions after storms. Good Luck!

you may have to reinstall the printer software. The computer may have lost the printer driver and the connection recognition.
if not, try a different USB port, and replace the USB cable if necessary

Try leaving the printer unplugged for a while and try it again. (Hold the power button down and see if it turns off.) If not, pull the plug out the back of the printer first (if possible) and then out of the wall. (Printers work best when they're plugged into ground outlets-the ones in the walls). Also unplug it from the computer. Hope this helps.

Remeber, warranty helps.

Have you checked the fuse[s]? You don't mention your location so I cannot comment of what protection devices that may be involved. UK has fused 13amp wall plugs for example.

Printer won't turn on

Same thing happen to me. There was a lightning storm on Saturday night so, even though I have a surge protector, I assume my MP830 took a surge. HERE IS THE SOLUTION! If you unplug the printer (pull the plug!) for at least 20 minutes (which lets the system discharge) then plug it back in, the system is allowed to reset and will fire back up when you press the power button. I know the above post is an old one, but I'm hoping this will help other searchers like me.
