Question about Epson R1900 Printer

Open Question

Hi, have just returned from a 5 week break, have switched on my Epson R1900 and the print head seems to be stuck. The friction strip that usually moves the print head makes a ratcheting noise as it runs through, but the print head itself doesn't move. Both the paper and ink warning lights then come on, and a 'general error' message appears. There is no paper in the printer and no obvious blockages. John

Heads are clogged. Has it been sitting for an extended length of time? Ink will dry up in the heads and tubes. Alot of work to take apart and clean and may still not work. Try to get a service manual at justmanuals.com

Call Epson for a replacement. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

SOURCE: Head won't move far enough to the left to get cartridges out

seems a case of carriage jam n needs servicing..
howevr, do it if ur printer is out of warranty and u r a professional..
check for loose/faulty carriage-belt and the drive-assembly..jammed/sticky cleanser-unit (esp the rubber, gears n base)..
also chance of defective/faulty photo/opto-coupler 'sensor(s)'..the diodes and resistors in dis section..
always better to hv professional supervision, contact ur system admin/vendor....

It;s general error or fatal error. Find the Adjusment Program for R1900, then Click Printer Information Check. You will find the latest fatal Error code. You can figure the actual error of your printer.

I have the Epson R1900 and I did a nozzle check twice and head cleaning twice. I am unable to check my supply levels. I am getting a message saying to only use genuine Epson Ink but that is what it


More than a little unusual that the printer is reporting non-OEM cartridges if those are the ones loaded unless your cartridge supplier has obtained their stock from another sales zone, in which case it may be that the printer is not recognising them as being valid.

Presumably, given the model you are getting the warning on your computer so you can disable this status monitor by doing the following:

- Open Printers & Faxes (or the equivalent for your operating system
- Locate your R1900 printer in the list
- Right click and select "Printing Preferences" (or "Properties" followed by "Printing Preferences")
- Click the "Maintenance" tab
- Click on the button marked "Speed & Progress"
- Tick the box marked "Disable status monitor 3.0" (The exact line may differ)
- Click Apply then OK

This should disable the annoying "Use genuine" warnings although it will also disable your ink monitoring capabilities via software.


I would still contact your supplier and/or Epson to complain about the problem and ask for replacement cartridges for the ones most recently changed as obviously this is something that should be covered under the cartridge warranty.

Hope that helps.

My R1900 is over 1 year old. Profiles are set for Epson glossy and matte paper. Epson ink is used. Colors are now very green when printing to glossy or matte paper. However, if I use the plain paper...


The difference in choosing the paper type will have an impact on how head squirts ink onto the media. For Epson printers, the best choice to fit the color is plain paper.However, to the maximum dpi (best photo or photo rpm), plain paper does not support.This can be overcome by adjusting the color management of the program that we use.Or convert to bitmap all objects (such as Corel Draw), or also in print as bitmap option.

Power light is out and the two amber lights are flashing at same time.


Power off and paper and ink flashing alternately:

Parts inside the R1900 Series are at the end of their
service life or an unknown error has occurred. Contact
Epson for help

Power off and the paper and ink flashing fast:

The print head is obstructed by paper or other foreign
material. Turn off the printer, remove any obstructions,
and turn it back on. If the error persists, contact Epson

Good Luck!!!

Epson 1900 inket print head clogged


Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning

And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Check there is no foreign objects in the way of the print head. Check the encoder strip is clean and in tact. Ensure the print head can both leave and return to the home position easily. Check that the head lock is retracting when power is turned on.
