Two springs loose in Epsom stylus 780 printer

I was replacing my ink cartridges  and decided to clean out the heavily inked area on the right side of the print track.  I was too vigorous and apparently two springs got detached.  I believe this is from the flat tray shaped part that is connect to an ink draining tube (?) that resides to the left (perhaps attached by a hook type mechanism) to the place where the extra ink is absorbed into some foam (?).  I need to figure out where to put the springs.  Plus the foam ink absorber looks in pretty bad shape like maybe some part of it is missing/deteriorated--it is not a uniform shape at all.
Its an old machine but still works great.  Hope I haven't killed it.
My printer is not listed on your products list.    I own an Epson Stylus Photo 780 purchased several years ago, obviously.

If the issue persists, it appears as though the hardware itself is malfunctioning and will require service. You can take the unit to an Epson Customer Care Center for repair, as your product is no longer within its one-year warranty period (from the original date of purchase). These service centers have their own rates and policies. If you can reply with the zip, I can give details abt the nearest repair place. =)

I cannot stop the ink cartridge holder to stop in the correct positioo to replace the cartridges on my epsom cx5500 printer


Hello jgw_cansdale,
Welcome to Fixya.com!
If the Ink light (fon3_66.gif) is flashing that means one or more of your ink cartridge is low on ink, and if it's steady it means one or more is out of ink. For Epson printers, there are lots of ways to identify whether your printer is out or low on ink. For today let's just stick with the printer itself.\
Remember: A flashing fon3_66.gif means LOW ON INK, and a steady fon3_66.gifmeans OUT OF INK.
1. Open the scanner bed by lifting it up just like opening a brief case. By doing this you should now be able to see the carrier area this is the area were the ink carrier or ink holder moves left and right,
2. Press the Ink button. Now remember flashing means LOW and steady means OUT of ink.
If the Ink light is flashing, and you pressed the Ink button the carrier or ink hold will move under a small arrow just right above the carrier to point to you which ink cartridge is low on ink. pressing it again will point to another if you have multiple cartridges that are running low, if not it moves directly to the ink cartridge replacement area were you can pop the carrier's lid open to access the inks.
If the Ink light is steady, and you pressed the Ink button the carrier or ink hold will move under a small arrow just right above the carrier to point to you which ink cartridge is out of ink. pressing it again will point to another if you have multiple cartridges that are out of ink, if not it moves directly to the ink cartridge replacement area were you can pop the carrier's lid open to access the inks.

My Epsom SX215 appears to print page - it makes all the right noises - but when I take page out it is totally BLANK!!! Any answers would be greatly, greatly appreciated.


Either:
* out of ink -- buy new cartridges
* ink-jets are clogged, i.e., no ink is being jet-sprayed onto the paper -- run a few "print-head-cleaning" cycles.

On Epsom Stylus NX110 I cannot get the cartridges to the change position If I go into cartridge replacement utility I cannot open that and do not have a printer in the lower right hand corner to access...

If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:
Replace Cartridges Using a Printer Software Utility
For best printing results, use up a cartridge within six months of opening the package. If you need to replace a cartridge when the ink light is flashing or off (before the cartridge is expended), you can run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

1. Windows: Right-click the printer icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (the taskbar) and select Printer Settings. Click the Maintenance tab.
Macintosh: Open the Applications folder, open EPSON Printer Utility3, select your printer (if necessary), and click OK.

You see one of these screen SEE ATTACHMENT BELOW

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

EPSOM STYLUS C62 COLOUR PRINTER PROBLEM! HELP! URGENT!


If both lights are flashing, it usually means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink "protection" counter has exceeded its limit. You can restore your printer to a working condition immediately by using the SSC utility - download from

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

and use it to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

If this solution helps you, please rate it; if it doesn't, please provide further information by posting a new comment.

Magenta ibk problem


Have you tried running head-cleaning cycles? If not, try 2 or 3 followed by a nozzle check and see if magenta starts to appear. If this still produces no magenta print, or you've already tried this with no success, report back.

Error message - no ink


Hi Maria,

Try removing all of the ink cartridges again. Open the cover and remove all of the inks. Close the cover and turn the printer off. Leave it off for about 30 to 45 secs. Turn it back on. Install again the ink cartridges. Check if it will charge after closing the cover.

If it still says that ink need replacement, check your lcd panel. Usually it will tell you what ink cartridge needs replacement. This might be a faulty ink cartridge.

Epsom R200 COPY INK DOESNT WORK


There is no solution, I have tried this myself, there are compatible inks for this product, you just got the wrong ones, However it may only be down to one of the inks, check the ink levels before removing, if all empty, then they are not compatible.
