Question about Epson RX595 Photo All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

This printer suddenly bricked. No power light, zip.

This printer suddenly bricked. No power light, no response at all. Had been working earlier in the day. No apparent cause (i.e., lightning, a fall or spill, etc.). Resigning myself to the probability that this 1 1/2 y.o. printer is going to have to be replaced rather than repaired.
If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them. We have power at the end of the cord as measured with my vom.
In the meantime, the more pressing question is: how do I get the print head to slide over so that I can get the ink cartridges out? Something blocks it, looks like a small white part that probably moves out of the way somehow.

Hi usually the printer need power for the print head to slide in position for you to access it, or you may have to disassemble the printer to get out the cartridges.

    Yep, and since the lack of power is the primary problem, that's keeping me from moving the print head. Any way to move the little white thing that blocks the print head?

    Please tell me what kind of printer do you have?

    It's epson rx595

    Never mind, I was able to force the little white plastic tab at the base of the cartridge carrier over far enough to allow the carrier to slide into position where I could open it. I can get a little money back from the cartridges by turning them in at Staples, but the printer itself is going to the free barn at the dump for anyone that would like the parts.

When I plug into the back of printer the power light does not come on unless I jiggle the connection?

Sounds like a poor connection. If it's still under warranty take it back! I got a free replacement printer after the paper feed disintegrated.

Invalid response from itunes

Apple is not supporting the earlier models of iPhone with the later versions of iTunes.

iTunes provided this error message "iTunes could not connect to the iPod touch because an invalid response was received from the device." using my Generation 1 iPhone (2007) and iTunes version

There are two solutions for this, either find an Apple computer running an earlier version of iTunes, or find a PC version of iTunes that is earlier than version 12.

I found iTunes Version for the PC (64bit) and that worked fine on my Win8.1 PC.

Caution - If you try to reload iPhone firmware holding down the power plus home button, and keeping the home button pressed, but you dont have a working iTunes - you risk "bricking" the iPhone until you can reload the firmware with an older version of iTunes.

The FileHorse website provides many older versions of iTunes for the PC.

My printer is switched on but it can't do any cant copy and can't scan

Try to re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you.

The printer is switched on at the plug and all connected but the printer wont turn on when clicking the on/off button on the actual printer. what can i do?

Is there a power light on the power brick? if not make sure the power brick is plugged in all the way. Try plugging a lamp or a light in the socket and make sure the not the outlet.
Still having problems try a different outlet.
If there is power going to the printer make sure the connection between the power and the printer is firmly in.

I am using an HP printer but a different model. Disconnect your printer connection to your PC first. You can then check "power brick" light if it on (normally green in color). The power brick is the small box between the wire connecting your printer on one end and the power surge. Check first if there is a light. If its off, you may want to unplug the connection on the printer and check if it will turn green with the wire connected to the wall. If it does turn green, it is a problem with your printer. If it doesnt, it may be a problem with your wire. If your printer wire does not come with this power brick, you can plug the printer directly to the wall bypassing the power surge and see if it will work. If that does not work, try to reseat your wirings and try again. If it still does not work, you need to contact your printer manufacturer for repair/replacement. Don't try opening your printer, it may void your warranty.

Is the power light lit up? If not, double check the AC cord is firmly in the brick adapter, and the plug is firmly in the subwoofer with the arrow facing up. The ac cord may look like it is in tight, but not be. Unplug it and replug it to make sure. Make sure the ac cord is plugged into a good power jack. If you have the brick plugged into a surge protector or power controller,make sure they are on (not off, or 'reset') If you still don't have a light, take the brick to a electronics store (radio shack, etc) and have them check the output voltage. A replacement power brick is not that expensive, especially a third party one.

if you do have the light on, try plugging them into an MP3 player, cd player, or pretty much anything with a headphone jack. Hit the vol up (+) a few times.
If they work there, it's a computer sound issue (wrong plug, muted, headphones plugged in, etc) . If it doesn't work using an mp3 player (or equivalent), you may have a bad audio cable, or the speakers may have simply gone bad.

The printer may have had a short while doing the reset. You can try by trying to do the rebrick again. If that does not work I believe there is no much you can do unless your printer is under warranty. If it is then you can call the manufacturer to have it replaced.
Best of luck.

Lexmark 9575 has no power

Sounds like a bad brick. If you have a computer repair place near you take the machine to them and have them test the brick or try a new power cord. Usually a new cord will take care of the problem. Rarely the plug on the printer goes bad so hopefully it is just the cord.
