Epson Stylus TX117. Why won't it print?


The user guide for this printer can be found here
Epson Stylus TX117 Manuals Documentation
see the section on troubleshooting - ink light continuously on n the second page. It instructs you to reseat the cartridges/check if they inserted fully and correctly. If the printer still does not work after doing this, remove the cartridges and re-insert them (on my printer there is procedure for replacing a partially used cartridge). Are your cartridges genuine Epson and within use by date ? Some printers can detect these things and fail to function. Although compatible non-OEM (ie non Epson) are usually ok sometimes they are not.
If none of the above apply, contact Epson support
Epson Support Home

Eu.Facut same problem and I reset everything is clean and error plus cartridges when they go to the left makes a strange noise, as if the printer with them! Thank you!


Hi

I believe that the ink cartridge is making jammed for sometime that cause strange noise when ink cartridge going to the left side.

Just use the WD40 sprayer to clean the metal guide (if metal). This is good for lubricating and rust remover.

I hope it helps you.

I put a new black ink into my printer it seemed alright, then when I went to print a document it made a strange noise and the green light went out and the red light went back on. I have tried pressing the...


the cover over the cartridge was not closed properly is my guess - was the noise like a grinding sound? - if so, it was the toothed drive belt jumping teeth on the drive roller.

Turn off power to the printer and GENTLY pull the cartridge carriage back t the center using the drive belt. Next remove and re-insert the cartridges and make sure the cartridge cover is down and locked.

It sounds like the print head is jamming on the parking mechanism (usually because the actuation lever is stuck in the up position). Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves, pull the power cord out of the back, or switch it off at the mains. You should now be able to move the print head over to the left by hand out of the way. Now look in the "parking bay" at the right end where the print head parks itself and see if there is a plastic arm sticking up. If there is, gently pull it towards you and it should spring down. Now turn the printer back on and it should operate normally. If it happens again, repeat the process a few times to see if it clears the problem. Otherwise it means the parking mechanism is gummed up with dried ink and needs a good clean (see below).

Alternatively, if you see that the whole parking mechanism itself has moved up to block the way, this means a spring has come off. To get this back on again requires the printer to be dismantled - as does the cleaning job above!

Should you decide to have a go at cleaning or re-fixing the spring, let me know via a new posted comment so I can provide further assistance.

Changing the ink cartridge in Epson Stylus CX4200


1. Make sure the unit is turned on, and not printing. The POWER light should be on, but not flashing.

2. Lower the OUTPUT tray, and lift the scanner portion to access the ink cartridges.

3. Press and release the INK button. The print heads will move to the left, and the cartridge that needs to be replaced will stop directly beneath the OUT OF INK symbol. Make a note of which cartridge requires replacement.

4. Press and release the INK button again. If more than one ink cartridge is empty, the next cartridge will move under the OUT OF INK symbol. If no other cartridges are out of ink, the print heads will now move to the REPLACEMENT POSITION.

5. Open the CARTRIDGE COVER. Pinch the front and back tabs of the empty cartridge as you lift it out of the unit. Dispose of this cartridge.

6. Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.

7. Remove the new cartridge from its package, and lower it into the cartridge holder. Push down gently until the cartridge clicks into place.

8. Repeat steps 5-7 for each cartridge that you need to replace. Close the CARTRIDGE COVER once all of the necessary ink cartridges are replaced.

9. Carefully lower the scanner, until it clicks into place

10. Press and release the INK button.

The ON light flashes and the printer makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the ON light stops flashing and stays on steady.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus printer while the ON light is flashing, unless the Stylus printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

Black stripes ove the page


Try cleaning your ink nozzles or ink jets. It sounds like you have a plugged nozzle or two. Your printer program should have maintenance options that allow you to test for plugged nozzles and clean them.
In control panel, open the printing/fax icon, right click on your printers icon, left click properties, then on the bottom of the page the panel that opens you will see a button that says printing preferences, and that should open your print program.
