1) Turn off the printer.
2) Lift the scanner cover.
3) Toggle the transportation lock five times, ensuring that it is in the unlocked position, towards the front of the scanner.

My epson stylus photo rx 650 printer gives a error message of "A printer error occurred. Please see your manual. The printer is approx 4 years old but is not used extensively.


Hi Keith,

Based on your follow up comment it seems likely that something is blocking the printhead from getting back to the resting/cleaning pad and could actually be the resting pad holder itself.

I'd recommend shifting the printhead over to the left out of the way and then shine a strong light down into the area over to the right to see if there's any foreign objects stuck down there or anything similar that's getting in the way.

If the resting/cleaning pad has popped out of its holder, you should be able to push it down and back into place with a little care (and a pair of gloves).

I don't have specifics on the RX650 but some models have a sort of train carriage style connection with a shuttle that moves the pad holder. If that's the case here, you can usually push the pad holder down and under the connector to bring it back up into position...

Hope that's of some help.

Martin

My Epson RX650 scan software will not start up. The printer works and the copy feature works. When I double click on the Epson Scan icon on my desktop it appears that it wants to start up but then...


Install another scanning software, if you have photoshop or any imaging software, you can use the scanner by going to the menu, then choose File, Import, TWAIN, Acquire and the scanner control will appear.

Or just go to My Computer and double click the scanner icon (in XP) to start the scanning assistant.

Canon MP480- 5011 - Printer Error Has Occurred After Scan/Prt


You need to carefully clean the encoder strip. It's the clear strip behind the carriage that runs all the way from right to left. A damp Q-tip should remove any grease or fingerprints.

Ive turned on my Epson rx650 and it says there is a scanner error, and told me to refer to my manual. how can I fix this? I dont know where the manual is!!


You can find most of the manuals through www.epson.com.
I only found the user's guide by googling and that led me to theAustralian Epson site. The direct link to the user's guidehttp://tech.epson.com.au/downloads/RedirectLink.asp?ProductID=stylusphotorx650&Email=&DownloadID=5011
A Basic Operation Guide is at http://tech.epson.com.au/downloads/RedirectLink.asp?ProductID=stylusphotorx650&Email=&DownloadID=5012

The Basic Guide indicates that the solution is to turn off theall-in-one again and turn it back on. Make sure the transportation lockhas been released. If the error repeats contact dealer (Epson)

Scanner failure


Hi,

The "Scanner System Failure" error occurs if the scanner bulb is not heating to the correct temperature or there is some other issue with
the scanner hardware. Perform the following steps to resolve the error:

1. Verify that the scanner bulb is lit. If the scanner bulb will not
light up, the all-in-one will require to be serviced.
2. Perform a Power Cycle on the all-in-one as listed below:

a. Verify that the unit is switched on.
b. Remove the power cable from the back of the machine.
c. Wait for 20 seconds.
d. Reinsert the power cable in the backside of the unit.

3. If the error continues to persist, remove the power cord from any power strip and plug it directly into a wall power outlet. The power strip may not be supplying enough power to the product.
4. Cold ambient room temperatures may also cause this error. Move the all-in-one to a warmer room and see if the error reoccurs.

Trying to copy something and this error 2200 pops up and states refer to user guide


Hi
This is a scanner lock issue. You may try the following:

Power off the All-In-One (AIO) off and remove the power supply from the back of the unit. Wait 30 seconds. Then reinsert the power supply and power the AIO on.

Try a test scan now. If the error reoccurs, then try the below:

Power off the AIO and remove the power supply from the back of the unit. Open the scanner cover and check the scanner glass for cracks and the scanner casing for cracks. Close the scanner lid.
Open the top cover of the AIO and using the carrier belt, move the cartridge carrier to the middle of the unit. Remove both cartridges, close the top cover, reinsert the power supply, and power the AIO on.

If the error still occurs, you may insert the cartridges one at a time and re-check..

hope the above info is of use to you.. try out..!!

Epson RX650 with a G5 Mac. Printing beautifully,now pgs are blank


It definately sounds like blocked print heads, try head cleaning 4 or 5 times, leave overnight and try another 4 or 5 times the next day. This usually works, if not you will need to try something a little bit stronger. Try this link:

Blocked print heads are more far more common if you are using non-genuine Epson inks. Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.
