Epson Stylus Photo 1280 dead

My Epson Stylus Photo 1280 InkJet is dead but brand new, although past warranty. During installation, the ink tanks never swing into the open so you can put cartridges in them. Please help. Thanks, Bugs4

Epson Photo Stylus 1280 print heads do not work


The problem is the print head, The ink cartrige for this printer is just a little bottle of ink. What really causes problem in it IS THE CLOGGED HEAD. If you have skill to reach thepen of the head (part that touchs the paper) use a quill tip or rag soak on water and clean it. Or go to EPSON SITE AND ORDER A HEAD CLEANNER FLUID TO POUR INSIDE THE HEAD AND CLEAN IT.

I'm trying to resurrect an old Epson 1280 Photo Stylus. I've changed ink cartridges, and run the head cleaning/nozzle check utility numerous times, but nothing prints out on any test pages, nor on any...


It's time to "cut your losses"; either the electronics that tells the inkjets when to shoot ink is screwy, or the inkjets are totally plugged, despite the "cleaning" cycles.

Responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new printer.
Maybe, try to find another Epson that accepts the same ink-cartridges that you recently inserted into the old printer.

A child moved the head in my Epson Stylus Printer


Turn the printer off -- listen for noise as the head should move to its "parking" position.

Turn the printer on, and listen for noise.

If none, then the mechanics that move the head are broken.

Is the printer still under manufacturer's warranty -- although the warranty may _not_ cover child-inflicted breakage.

Epson 1400 Printing Orange colors Green





The problem can be two fold. Wrong cartridges, or blocked/damaged inkjet openings. Return it to the seller under warranty if its brand new. If it was fitted with non epson cartridges your warranty may be in question.

But I could almost guarantee the black qand the blue cartridges are faulty or their feed jets are

Out of ink for all colours? If you don't use CISS, are the replacement ink tank new? Chip in ink tank stored ink level counter. If it reach zero, chip can't use. Check chip contact at ink tank, and chip connector at head carriage. Don't be frustated, man. I have thousands experiences like that. Two unsolved, that board is burning. If, chip conector is clean, use chip that no reach zero level. Good luck.

Epson stylus photo 1280 Isn't the printer working if I only have a black ink full?


It doesn't matter whether the cartridges are full, but both cartridges need to have ink in order for the 1280 to work.

Problem using sublimation inks


Since you are using sublmation ink, the cartridges are probably aftermarket and may not meet Epson standards. Aftermarket chipped cartridges are notorious for failing to 'communicate' with Epson printers, even when the cartridge is brand new. Before taking the printer to a service center, you might try purchasing new cartridges of your ink from your reseller. If that fixes the problem then your fight is with the ink reseller, not Epson. If it doesn't fix the problem and your printer is still under warranty, take it to an authorized service center, and remember, using non-Epson ink does NOT void the waranty.
