Question about Epson Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Ok so I bought this Epson printer at a flea market its and Epson picture mate deluxe 500 model number b351a . They didn't have the adapter so I went to best buy and bought a adapter that has different heads with are 120 60hz12 w. 600max. I'm a female and don't know about this kind of stuff. But the printer said 20 v. So I tried it with all the different heads that come will the adapter. But the only thing is that when I press the on button the green light comes for like three seconds and goes right off again. And that's all It will do. I really like this printer its small and compact and so cute . So could u please help me on telling me what should I do ?. Could it be that I didn't put the ink in it yet? Are maybe the adapter may not be right kind? You think I need to just junk the printer and forget it. I'm sure it cost more to fix than just buy a new one. So if u could help maranda.

Maranda, most inexpensive ink jets are just that.

But a few questions.

* Did the adapter you bought state how many amps it would put out? The printer you have requires at
least 2.5A to operate. Below that it probably won't start up.

But seriously. Don't think about repair. Its more than the printer is worth.

Hope this helps.

Changed cartridge, received a code "P", says to install a new cartridge, but I just did install. Will not allow to do a clean print head.

hi, first turn the printer off and unplug it and let set for 30 mins. Ig that doesn't work try taking the cartridge out and reaching inside where you put the cartridges go and clean the print head with alcohol with a q-tip.

I bought a cartridg for Epsom Picture Mate 100 and it is always giving me E73 erroe. Is there a solution

Some printer cartridges have a built-in chip and the printer won't work with after market printer cartridges. This forces you to use genuine Epsom printer cartridges.

Epson Picture Mate 500, Waste ink pad is full. Where is this, can it be cleaned, if so what is the best method? Many thanks.

You can go to this site to look for a download of the manual for your printer which should have the information you need. You will need a model number to search.

THERE is a tweak with the cards you insert on your picture mate, to be honest these things dont recognize memory cards that are above 2 gig. they also dont recognize some brands. the most compatible as per experience is sandisk
