I have problems with paper jams all of the time and it won't print once it jams. I turned off the printer, unplugged it, plugged it back in and turned the printer back on and it worked. You could try that.

Replaced black ink cartridge, but now it only prints a very faint line, cant make out what is printing


Sir/Madam

If your printed pages have a horizontal line in the text or graphics (as shown in the illustration below) or blank text, some of the nozzles may be clogged and need to be cleaned

Go to Section 2 for instructions on how to print the Alignment Check sheet and adjust the print alignment.

  • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (A) or (B) and you do not see any improvement on the second or third Check Sheet, please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us."

  • If the print quality on the first Check Sheet matched Example (A) or (B) and you see some improvement on the second or third Check Sheet but it's not perfect, repeat the cleaning and the quality check process three more times (totally five times).

Sounds like there is a sheet of paper jammed in it. Try taking off the roller access panel in the back (not the access panel by the cartridges). Make sure to only use clean sheets with proper humidity level to avoid jams. Also fan the sheets before feeding to disperse any static.

Does not print


***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
the nozzles of the printer might be clogged by dried inks thats why when your printing, its feeding the paper, as if its printing but no inks on the paper. print a nozzle check to see which part or color have clogs, if there are gaps or breaks, do head cleaning untill no more gaps then try printing.
Running a Printer Check
1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus NX100 Series. 3. Hold down the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.1.jpg Stop button as you press the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus NX100 Series back on.

Hold down both buttons until the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.5.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are missing, you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
You can also clean the print head by holding down the stop button on the printer for three seconds. (This only works when the red ink light is off.) Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, print quality can decline, so turn it on and print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality. ***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

Card stock won't feed


HI,

SOLUTION:
  1. Perform a semi-full reset on the all-in-one by following the steps below
  1. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the all-in-one.
  3. Wait 30 seconds, and plug the power cord back into the wall outlet.
  4. Press and hold the # and 6 buttons on the numeric keypad.
  5. While still holding the buttons, plug the power cord back in to the all-in-one. Continue to hold the buttons for two seconds, and then release them.
  6. Allow the all-in-one to re-initialize. This may take a minute or two.
  7. If prompts appear in the all-in-one display to set the front panel language and country settings, perform the steps to set this information.
  8. Insert the card back into the appropriate slot.
  9. If it does not begin to print a proof sheet automatically, press the Proof Sheet button and follow the normal process for your model to print a proof sheet.
  10. Once the proof sheet begins to print, press Cancel to stop the proof sheet from printing.
  11. Use the On button to turn the power off and then back on again.
    The problem should be corrected. If the problem still exists, service your product.

Hi,

To do a Default Setting Mode to an Epson LX300+, you need to:
1. Power OFF the printer (for at least 10 seconds or more);
2. Press Tear Off button while simultaneously powering ON;
3. Release button, maintain power ON, printer will print basic/default settings.

At most times, it is the parallel/printer cable that gets dislodged. loosely connected or perhaps would even require replacement.

Should you want to do a printer self-test on an Epson LX300+:
Printer's Self-Test - The built-in self test function demonstrates that the printer is working properly. You can run the test with either continuous paper or single sheets; this describes the easier way, with single sheets.

* Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
* While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
* Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
* Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
* Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
* To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
* To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
