General error : head carriage error / chip not recognized. Head carriage can't move freely. Just turn off for about 1 hour, turn on again without ink tank. Plug ink tank.

Blink alternately or not? If alternately, the message is not "general error". but "service required" It's true to reset waste ink counter. But, i think it's not service required. when trun on printer ready? But when start to print red lights blink at same time? Problem with chip at ink tank. Check connector at chip and at head carriage. It's may be dirty, and not good connection. try to use another chip.

Probably the waste ink tank is full.Try to do this:
First of all download to your C drive. Run indoreset.bat, then follow the instructions.
After that right click AdjProg and select properties. Go to compatibility and select Windows XP.
Click OK at the bottom then right Click AdjProg and select run as administrator (if you have this
option). When working accept the agreement and go to
1. Particular adjustment mode,
2. Then waste ink pad counter,
3. Click Check
4. Tick both boxes.
5. Then initialization.
6. Then it's done.

General error

The general memory error is contributed to a LARGE PRINT JOB that is stored within the systems NVRAM. We need to clear out these error codes stored in your printer NVRAM or memory! Shut down the printer and pc associated with it. Remove data cable and reinstall the software for this printer, press and hold the power button on the printer for 15 seconds, then reconnect the printer after software installation is successful. This process will clear the error codes that you keep receiving.

The sgreen says general error, see your printer documentation for information about clearing the error.......of course I can't find the manual

Everything you need; manuals, drivers and interactive guide can be found here:

Below are two possible soultions for a General Error:

1. When a General error message appears in the display on your printer's control panel, the print head may not be able to move because of some obstruction. Follow these steps:

  1. Turn the printer off.
  2. Open the printer's cover.
  3. Gently remove any jammed paper or other obstructions from the paper path.
  4. Close the cover and turn the printer back on.
alert_note.gif Note: If you can't remove the paper or foreign object yourself, do not use force and do not disassemble the printer.

2. When a General error message appears in the display on your printer's control panel, the print head may not be able to move back and forth freely.

If your printer's ink cartridge cover is not completely closed, the print head may have trouble moving back and forth. Follow these steps:

Turn off the printer.
  1. Open the printer's cover.
  2. Press the ink cartridge cover to make sure it is completely closed.
  3. Close the cover and turn the printer back on.
Before considering other options you might to try unplugging the printer from the power supply; give it 5 - 10 minutes before plugging back in and restarting.

Hopefully this will help resolve the problem. :)

Epson Photo Stylus 950 not functioning

when ever you want to refill ink make sure, that the ink you refill decompressed for about 30min before you fix it into the printer.
Another thing is that you uninstall the software of the printer and reinstall again, and check the power supply of the printer is working perfectly.

It doesnt print

delete your printer from your computer and reinstall it.
This will reset it. Make sure you have your cd with software and drivers handy or that you can download drivers from your printer company site under support of you device first.
You shouldn't need the drivers but just incase.
After you delete your printer out reboot your computer and reistall your printer. If running windows 2000,xp or Vista it should reistall it when you reboot.
