Question about Epson Stylus Photo RX680 Printer

Open Question

Epson RX680 printer reports "a printing error has occurred. Turn the printer of then on again." This does not solve the problem at all. The print carriage is not locked wit the power off as I would expect. If I repeat turning it on and off, it will start up OK, but will not do anything without reverting back to the same error message. There is no paper jammed anywhere in the printer. One of the times that it did seem to boot up correctly, I tried to copy a page. The feed progressed to the point where printing would begin, and the same error happened again. "A printer error has occurred. Turn off the printer and turn it on again. Please see your documentation." Needless to say the manual (the documentation) offers no help at all.

Try turning it off and taking out the ink cartridges and putting them back in. If that doesn't work it could be defective. If it's new then it should be under warranty.

SOURCE: EPSON BX300F prints a page and then shows Printer Error.

Try uninstalling your printer, rebooting the computer, then re-installing your printer. If this does not work, it will require the printer top cover to be removed for further investigation. Either take the printer to a technician to investigate, or if you want to have a go yourself, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide information on how to proceed.

Some pin at the chip for redaing the existence of chip, other pin for reading the information. Check connector between chip and carriage.

I have an Epson RX680 the black and yellow ink are not printing after trying several print head cleanings and even replacing the cartridges (even though they were better then half full)


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Won't reconize new ink cartridge rx680 printer


hi friend,
Run the Head Cleaning utility to clear any clogged ink nozzles. To run the Head Cleaning Utility, follow the instructions below.

For Windows users:

1) Make sure that your printer is ON and the error light is off.

2) Access the printer software.

3) Click the Utility tab, then click the Head Cleaning button.

4) Follow the on-screen instructions

5) When the power light stops flashing, click Print nozzle check pattern in the Head Cleaning dialog box to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle

If you find that any segments are missing from the nozzle check pattern, you may need to repeat the head cleaning and print the pattern again.

Or u could consult the user manual
u should let the ink settle for 12-24 hrs???
hope this helps u
please rate me..........................
thank u for using fixya
regards
sivaranjini

Epson RX680-How to print only in B+W


You can set it to "grayscale" and supposedly print only in black/grey.
However, Epson printers use a small amount of every color even when printing black only or greyscale (black). Your printer will still not work with one color tank empty.

Here is how to set it:
Open the properties page for the RX680 and on the "Main" tab, click on [Advanced]. A Note may appear egarding incorrect settings.
Click [Continue]. Find the [ ] Grayscale box and check it, the [OK]
[OK], etc.

Here is Epson's note on using grayscale / colors:
