Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My epson stylus photo 1280 says there is something jammed in the printer and to remove it and start again. Doesn't work, so I'm to call an expert because the red light stays on indicating a cartridge error and I just change to new cartridges. What am I doing wrong, or is it in need of repair?

If you have determined there is nothing stuck in the printer and you have changed cartridges (using a genuine Epson cartridge), and you have unplugged the printer and then restarted it--and it still doesn't work, this means there is a problem with the printer itself.
Unfortunately, not many shops will fix printers (although some will). Printers have become a throw-away item and for many, there aren't even repair parts available.

Tip

Manual Counter Reset Method


To manually reset the Ink Jet Counter that compels you to clean your waste pads. For the tip on how to clean your ink waste pads go here.

Please Note: In some cases, your printer may be leaking ink so much and so often that not only does your ink pads need cleaning, but you may need to replace the ink reservoir on your printer or you will have a leaking mess on your hands. This is a decision and judgment only you can make. If your printer is leaking quite of lot of ink, you may have to take it to an authorized Epson Repair Shop or Person. Find an authorized location by starting at Epson.com

The solution below is valid for most of the following printer models listed below this solution, some listed may not work, some not listed may also work it varies as this method is listed below is illegal for an authorized Epson Tech to release.

Thanks to the many user boards on the Internet for this solution that I know has worked for people I've helped here on FixYa.

Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work the first time. The key is in pressing the buttons exactly at the same time. So if this doesn't work the first time, try again and try again. Most people state they get it eventually.

[thanks to fixyourownprinter.com for the crux of this particular solution]

"Printer Onboard Control Panel Key Sequence"

"Press and hold the paper feed, paper switch and the power switch.

Once the power light and paper light flashes twice and the other lights are flashing release the paper feed and paper switch "and then press the paper feed switch".

The power, paper and ink lights will flash twice. At this point the protection counter has been reset."

Don't give up, if it does not reset the first time. The timing is tricky for some people.

Supported Epson Models that I am aware of, others not listed may work and some listed also may not work, it varies but don't be discouraged to try and try again.

You can also try the software download solution listed in this tip I posted.

I cannot access the print preview screen. Printer is Epson Stylus Photo 1280, OS is Vista


Best bet is to reinstall the software and drivers.

The printer is rated to work with vista.

Usually when something doesn't work on the software end a bad installation is the cause.

Try to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
Be sure that the device is not connected to the computer until the software prompts you to plug it in

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.

Epson 1280


The ink jet printers have ink absorbing pads to catch and accumulate ink used to clean the printheads. The counter on MB counts number of head cleanings and printer startups (at every start up the heads are cleaned) and at preset number of cleaning alerts the operator that "printer needs maintenance" and sets the red light. You probably need a change ink absorbing pads (or wash them and dry 'em up) and then make a reset the count using printer Service Utility (can be downloaded from the web). To get to the ink absorbing pads is not easy - you need to remove the printer case - I am not familiar with 1280, but I did that on Epson 3000 & 5000 printers. In many cases the pads are actually OK , but the MB reaches the count and flags the pads.
