Our epson stylus rx500 printer has been saying ERROR: Printer Error --> See documentation & call for support

this means that you may need a reset your ink waste counter. try to perform this

For the RX500 - Hold down "clear + setup + on"

continue to hold the buttons until the printer had powered on, then off again, then back on. Once I noticed that the LCD had flashed a blank screen, I let go of the 3 keys. In the LCD window I was given access to 3 options using the select keys.

The first had something to do with calibrating the scan light, the second option said "startup." The 3rd did the trick. An abbreviation resembling "ink pad level" was what I was looking for. Here is where I forget what I did... I think that I pressed "OK" on the keypad,. It did nothing. Then I think that I held down the clear button for around 10 seconds. When I let go of the clear button, the LCD read "Press Power to Reset." All better now!

post me a review should this work sir / ma'am coz it did for me

Will not turn on

Reseat the ink cartridges (or replace if necessary) and be certain that the scanner is unlocked.

Scanner error

Press the On button to turn off the Stylus Photo RX500. Unlock the transportation lock. Make sure that all packaging materials have been removed. Turn on your Stylus Photo RX500 again. If the error message still appears, call Epson so they can replace your printer.

How do i eject the ink carrier?

hi there,

  1. Look at the Epson printer's LCD screen to see the ink levels for each cartridge. If your cartridge is completely empty, simply press the "Color" button. If your cartridge has a low ink level, press "Setup". Hold down the button on the upper left side of your LCD screen until the words "Replace Ink" appears, then press the "Color" button.
  2. Wait until you see the words "Open the scanner" on the LCD screen. Then lift open the printer top by pulling up on the side grips next to the scanner unit. Make sure that the scanner lid remains closed. The ink cartridge holder should move to the far right of the printer.
  3. After the cartridges have completely stopped moving, pull the cover of the ink cartridge holder up and toward you. Press in the tab of the cartridge you need to replace. Lift the cartridge straight up to pull it out of the holder.
  4. Unwrap the replacement cartridge and insert it securely into the holder. Press straight down until the cartridge snaps into place.
  5. Close the cartridge holder cover and make sure it clicks into place. Close the scanner unit and wait while the printer charges the new replacement cartridge. Wait until the word "Charging" disappears from the LCD screen before using your printer.
Do not turn off your Epson printer while the "Charging" message is still on the LCD screen because this may cause your inks to not fully charge. Turn off your printer only if there has been no response for over five minutes.
Clean up any ink spills with soap and warm water.

Replacement ink cartridge: Black (T048120); Cyan (T048220); Magenta (T048320); Yellow (T048420); Light Cyan (T048520); or Light Magenta (T048620)

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

Let me know for further instructions.

Cannot get LCD screen to show Replace Ink message

try this

1. Make sure your unit is powered and not printing.

2. Press the SETUP button and then use the select arrows until you see REPLACE INK, then press the COLOR COPY button. The ink cartridges will move to the replacement position.

3. Lift up the unit's cover, to access the ink cartridges.

4. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, and lift it out of the printer.

5. Before removing the new cartridge from it's package, shake the cartridge 4-5 times. Do not shake the cartridge once it has been removed from the cartridge holder.

6. Lower the new cartridge into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place. Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, as you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

7. Repeat steps 4-6 for any other ink cartridges that require replacement.

8. Once complete, please lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus RX500 begins charging the ink delivery system.

The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus RX500 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on steady. At this point press COPY to move back to COPY mode.

Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus RX500 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus RX500 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

Sounds like the printer will not pass its power on self test.

Possible a power supply related problem.

Contact the manufacturer to determine if it is still under waranty.
