You are correct - it is fiddly. You should be able to get a part through an Epson Express center if there is one near you. Otherwise search the web for "Epson Parts Suppliers" and you should find one.

You can get a service manual for your machine from HERE to give instructions on how to get it apart and replace the belt properly. BE CAREFUL with the fitting behind the head carriage - it can easily break off if you are too heavy handed.

The belt for the R300, R200 series is the same as is some other models.

I have a error on my epson cx6400 and don't


Hi,

the best way to solve the problem is to replace the printheads or
Turn the printer on and pull the plug when it starts its initialization process. Can you move the carriage by hand at this point? If not, sounds like you may have a carriage motor\belt issue.

or clear the error message.

Thanks,

General Error Message


The "General error" message on the Epson R320 (as with most other Epson inkjets) can mean a whole host of things.

The most common ones are:

  • Printhead carriage blocked
    (something is blocking the printhead from moving left and/or right properly)
  • Cleaning/Parking pad area blocked
    (the printhead can't reach it's normal resting position)

  • Disconnected sensor
    (a ribbon cable has become disconnected or a sensor has failed so the printhead or paper location is not detectable)

  • Cartridge chip sensor issue
    (one or more of the cartridges has not been installed properly, has a "bad" chip or the sensor wires in the printhead carriage [where the cartridges sit] have been damaged)

If you can provide a bit more information on the error, possibly from the status monitor software that might give a bit more of a clue but hopefully the points above will give you a few places to look for possible causes.

I have the epson R200 and the ink carriage will not move across the printer anymore. You can manually move it back and forth freely.


Does anyone of you have a diagram that shows how to replace anEpson R320 Inkjet Printer Carriage Delivery Belt ? I have two of them. One has a belt broken and the other the black cartridge does not print (I have replaced it with a new cartridge and have cleaned the heads etc.) Any suggestions? If so, please email me at ril-2000@surewest.netThank you

Epson R320 carriage jammed


The ink cartridge is probably not inserted correctly.  Unplug the printer and manually move the carriage to a location where you can take the ink cartridge out.
 
Remove it and reinsert it, making sure that it is fully located, before applying the power.
 
Make sure that there is nothing blocking the carriage movement, such as some remnant of paper.

Turn off the power and look inside the machine to the right hand side. Just in front to f the print head you will see a white plastic dowel (see photo). Use something technical - like a finger, pen or screwdriver - to push this dowel in. You can then move the print head by hand to the middle of the carriage.

Once moved, turn the printer on and watch it travel back to the home position. If after returning home the dowel pops back out and does not retract itself, you will need to strip the machine out and rebuild the ASF section. Sounds hard but its just a few plastic parts to take apart and reassemble whilst looking to see if anything is broken.

Get a service manual; for the machine HERE if you need to strip it out.
