Hi,

This is Vikram Kumar Thumu, from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your solution on the issue. I would like to provide my solution on the issue.


Well, I have checked information for the issue at the EPSON web site and found below information as a solution for the issue.

The recommend solution by EPSON for the issue is :


The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the Epson printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check should be performed as a cycle.


After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern to see if there is any improvement. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to four cycles if necessary.


If the nozzle check is not printing completely, and if the head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, try replacing the ink cartridge. You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight this allows any dried ink to soften-and then try cleaning the print head again.

Try replacing the ink cartridges, if nothing helps, your printer may require service and you should contact Epson technical support for further assistance.

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.


Bye....

Similar problem


Oh, apart from the interesting non-standard lights, you may well be able to solve the problem by emptying the print queue to get rid of the gibberish document. Double click your printer icon (start-control panel -printers and faxes) to bring up the print queue. Right click the queue and select cancel all. Once they are cancelled, turn the printer off and on - have the error lights gone? If so, print a test page, if not, report back.

Black ink not printing


You have to run a head cleaning cycle:
Follow these steps to clean the print head:

  1. Make sure the Stylus CX is on and the cp_light_183_er.gif ink light is off.

  2. Hold down the cp_button_48_er.gif ink button for 3 seconds until the cp_light_1.gif On light starts flashing. The Stylus CX runs a head cleaning cycle and the cp_light_1.gif On light flashes.

    alert_caution.gif Caution: Never turn off the Stylus CX while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.

  3. When the cp_light_1.gif On light stops flashing, turn off the Stylus CX.

  4. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

  5. Press the cp_button_48_er.gif ink and cp_button_1.gif On buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds. The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. Shown below are some examples of what the nozzle check may look like:

    Nozzle check pattern with no gaps im_158_er.gif Nozzle check pattern with gaps im_159_er.gif

  6. Examine the nozzle check. If it does not look like the nozzle check pattern with no gaps as shown above, repeat steps 2 through 6.

alert_note.gif Note: If you don't see any improvement after cleaning the print head three times, turn off the Stylus CX and wait overnight. This lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the print head again.

If you do not use your Stylus CX often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

Epson won't print and all lights flash


"Turn the printer on while holding down both the ink and paper buttons. When the paper light flashes release both buttons", then hold down the ink button for approx. half a minute until the printer lights flash again then release it. That resets the printer.”

You may have to realign the paper feed sensor. I knocked mine off and got the same results. Just push it back into place.

Printer lights stay on


Hi geoger, Can you give more detail about the lights and if they flash and in what sequence. The most likely cause is that your machine has hit the maintenance error meaning that the waste ink pads are full. This requires that the pads be cleaned/replaced and the counter within the firmware be reset. To do this, you will need the service manual for the 1290 to dismantle it and gain accesss to the pads and the software to reset the firmware counter. You should be able to get these from: http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com and/or http://mikeburton.tradebit.com/
