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

    I have a similar problem. Today I was simply unplugging some other equipment from my surge protected sockets. Later when I tried to start the printer rx620, I get no lights at all. At first I thought it might be the fuse but it is not. I tried a new power cable - no joy. Can it really be true that these are so sensitive to power fluctuations?

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 sony lcd tv has no sound after lightning storm

You may have a damaged audio circuit in the set:

Look to see speakers are switched ON in audio or main menu.

If using a box unplug it and the set or anything between set and signal source for a while and plug back to see if helps.

Also to narrow things down a bit look to see if a DVD connected alone directly to a rear input on the set has sound.

We had a storm and now the wii will not even turn on.

Was the Wii running while the storm was going on? Was it a lightning storm? If the answer is yes to eaither one of these then most likely there was a power surge and the power supply and / or motherboard has been damaged

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!

Will copy, won't print

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

Good Day, gizmoally;

After storm to reset your TV; unplug TV from the wall for 4-6 minutes, then plug back into to wall, ensure outlet is working. If doesn't correct then TV's main a/c fuse may open.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

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.
