Why does my epson R280 Givers me a Communication Error, what does this mean


It normally means that the signal between the printer and computer had been corrupted or interrupted. Check that your USB cable is not damaged, unplugged or even slightly loose. Unplug and re-aligns in both ends. Use a different USB port on your computer if you can.
Keep the USB lead and printer away from unshielded mains or hi-voltage cables as as they can corrupt data signals. Next reinstall the printer driver. If all this fails, try your printer and lead on a friends computer. If it works, look for the problem in your laptop otherwise maybe it's time to buy an Epson wireless multifunction printer.

Blinking lights


when the router looses connection, it is best to just leave it as it tries to reconnect automatically
the blinking lights is the communication process and when connection is made for each section the light stays full on
there should be a on/off button that you just press to restart the searching process or a reset button under a small hole that you use a paper clip to gently press to reset
remember that it is not always the router that looses the connection but the server that it is connecting to

Two light is blinking and the computer's screen stay black


What type and model of PC? I sometimes see this on Dells when the RAM is loose. If you turn off and unplug the PC, remove the RAM and then re-seat it may fix it. If it doesn't it's time to unplug anything that's attached to your motherboard (other than the power supply) and connect one thing at time until the issue returns. Once the issue returns then the last thing you plugged in is the culprit. For issues like this it's usually the RAM or the power supply... or at least usually ;)

1. completely unplug power cord from wall socket,

4. unplug printer cable completely from printer.

Now securely:
1. reconnect the printer cable to the printer.

You may find that a connection has simply worked itself loose over time.

Router keeps loosing connection to computer maybe


sometimes the modem will kick off line, from a power glitch. I recommend you isolate the printer from that modem power strip and see how that works.

The monitor stays blank but the computer turns on fine, is it an issue with the video card or the screen? is there a way to fix this? thanks.


- Monitor plug is loose
- Maybe you only think that your computer has started. Hit the NUM LOCK key a few times, then CAPS LOCK key a few times. If you see the lights go on and off, your computer really did boot up. IF NOT, then the computer is really in trouble. In that case, unplug the computer and RESEAT the RAM modules; then try to restart the system.

Good luck and Happy Computing!
