Have not used my Epson R1800 for almost 6 months. When I turn on the power the printer head, with the cartridges, stayed at the very right end, not moving. The paper and ink lights flash and the head just...


Your User's Guide is available here:

http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r1800_/r1800_ug.pdf

After leaving the printer inactive for a extended period you should expect the ink cartridges to be dried up and the print head 'gummed' in place.

You will need to refer to page 82 of the pdf, Cleaning the Printer.

As part of cleaning remove the existing ink cartridges and while the cartridges are removed try and clean the print head of any ink residue. Note that if the red light is on or flashing above an ink cartridge the printer sees it as empty (dried up).

The print head will not move if ink cartridges need replacement; replace ink cartridges according to the red lights, likely all. Press the ink button to see if the printer will begin the charging cycle. If all is well the green power light will stay on and the red ink light will go out.

If you do not get this desired outcome try Cleaning the Print Head, page 73 of the User Guide. Hold down the ink button when the red light is off for 3 seconds. Run a nozzle check pattern; if nozzels are not printing a clean pattern, repeat this process up to 3 or 4 times.

Install ink cartridges for an Epson 315 workforce


If you do not want to go through the guide, here is a quick instruction on how to insert the ink cartridge.
Remove and Install Cartridges Be sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:

If you're replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the WorkForce 310 Series LCD display screen, press the ink.9.7.1.jpg Copy button, press ink.9.7.2.jpg Menu, press ink.9.7.3.jpg or ink.9.7.4.jpg to select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Ink Cartridge Replacement and press OK. 1. Open the scanner, then open the cartridge cover. ink.9.7.5.jpg 2. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it up. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it. ink.9.7.6.jpg Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children. 3. Before you open the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times. Then remove it from the package. ink.9.7.7.jpg Caution:
Do not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge. This can damage the ink cartridge. 4. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge. Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak. 5. Insert the new ink cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place. 6. Once you replace all the cartridges that need replacing, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place. ink.9.7.8.jpg 7. Close the scanner. 8. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes. When you see a completion message on the LCD display screen, ink charging is finished.

How do i install new cartridges into my tx printer first time user never changed before


With the printer on but not busy (flashing light), open the scanner unit. (Lift the scanner until the bracket on the right locks.)

If the cartridges are completely expended:

Press the Stop button on the printer, the print head should move to line the expended cartridge with the empty ink mark. Press Stop again and the next empty cartridge should line up with the mark. Continue to press Stop until the print head moves to the cartridge replacement location (after noting which cartridges need to be replaced).

One cartridge at a time, shake the new cartridge 5 times before opening the package.

Remove the new cartridge from the packaging and remove the yellow tape from the cartridge. Be careful not to damage the hooks on the side of the cartridge and do not touch the green IC chip. Leave the transparent seal in place.

Squeeze the tab at the back of the cartridge you want to replace and then lift the cartridge up. Then put the new cartridge straight into that slot and press down until it clicks.

Repeat this for all empty cartridges. Then close the scanner unit and press Stop. Wait until the light stops flashing and the empty ink error light goes out. The unit will charge the ink system while the light is flashing.

If the empty ink remains flashing or is on with the print head in the home position, then a cartridge may not be properly inserted. Press Stop and then push down on the cartridges. See http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/spc/stylustx100tx101/guide/html/ink_4.htm for pictures and images.

If the ink isn't expended, use the Ink Replacement utility in the Epson software. For Windows, this is part of Printing Preferences in the Maintenance tab. Open the Devices and Printers (slightly different name in older versions of Windows) control panel. Then right click on the printer and choose Printing Preferences.

I hope this helps.

Changing color cartridge on my epson stylus color 980 printer.


If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the instructions below:

To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement, please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.

Red light flashing - Low ink
Red light solid - Out of ink

1. Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.
2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was replaced first) press the cleaning button once).
8. Press the INK (Cleaning) button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

    Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the ink cartridge.

    You must remove the yellow tape from the cartridge before installing it; otherwise, print quality may decline or you may not be able to print.

    If you have installed an ink cartridge without removing the yellow tape, take the cartridge out of the product remove the yellow tape, and then reinstall it.

    Do not remove the transparent seal from the bottom of the cartridge or the label on the cartridge; otherwise the cartridge may become unusable or ink will leak.

    Place the ink cartridge into the cartridge holder with the bottom down. Then push down the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.

    Repeat steps 4 to 6 for each ink cartridge.

  • 5ee2013.jpg
      If you find it difficult to close the cartridge cover, make sure all the cartridges are firmly seated. Press down on each cartridge until you hear it click into place. Do not attempt to force the cover closed.

    1. Close the printer cover and press the ink or start button to begin charging the system. Charging can take up to three minutes and is complete when the power light stops flashing.
    While the ink system is charging do not switch off the printer.

    Based on the lights you are already out of one or more ink cartridge or an ink cartridge is not being recognized/expended.

    -You cannot print if any ink cartridge is expended.
    -Leave the empty cartridge installed in the printer until you have obtained a replacement.

    Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.

    1. Open the printer cover and press the INK REPLACEMENT button, located under the printer's cover. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.

    2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.

    3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.

    4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

    5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
    .
    6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.

    7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8.

    2. Right-click your printer model and select PRINTING PREFERENCES.

    4. Click the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility icon and follow the on-screen instructions to replace your ink cartridges as necessary.

    12. Release the scanner support and close the scanner.

    13. Press the Stop button to begin charging the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.
