Question about Epson Stylus CX5800F All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

"Printer error" All-in-one was working fine. Went on vacation; came back and it was reading: "Printer error; see your documentation". We followed all of the advice(?) Epson gave in the documentation and finally called Epson. They ran us through the same procedures and finally said: "Buy a new one." This may have been a power surge problem - we live in the mountains and get them periodically up here. Any advice??

    I'm getting the same error message on my printer. It's interesting you mentioned a power surge problem. We had the power go out at work (1.7 miles from my house), but I'm pretty sure the power stayed on here. Anyway, I'm going to keep looking for a solution. Sucks that they told you to buy a new one. Seems like I buy a new printer every couple years. They're so cheap it's hard to not to just buy new ones, but it seems like a terrible waste.

    I have had the same problem with all the lights coming on and get Printer Error ... see documentation. I sent a question to Epson Tech Support asking for their advice. I'll see what I get back from them. Probably buy a new one so they can keep their jobs.



    Also, another thread shows that the printer won't come on at all, and then a day or two later it does. I've had that same problem too when it was still under warranty. I sent this printer back twice and they've replace it with a refurbished one. I think it's a design flaw in the Power Supply or other circuitry.



    Stay tuned...

Don't have the exact problem but somewhat on the response. My printer worked once after replacing two toners. After starting all the lights (Copy, Memory Card, Fax) come on and stay on. I guess it is now a "boat anchor".

SOURCE: "Printer error"

Try unplugging cable for ten minutes, did you reinstall drivers already?

Epson RX595 says "Error-paper jam" but no paper in printer!!!


I got my printer to work (finally! #$^%$%) by moving the ink carriage back and forth a bit gently and then I sprayed a small amount of WD40 on a lint free small cloth and wiped the silver bar inside with it. I slid the carriage slowly from one side to the left and it seemed to stick less. I thought my printer was broken so I figured it couldn't do any more harm and lo and behold it worked! My printer went back to the normal screen after turning it back on and I am finishing the print job that I never thought would happen. YAY!

Hp 6210 fails alignment


Major cleaning. Ink heads xtra dirty. Must contact HP instant chat and they will walk you through the rest of it. Not knowing how to fix this one even though Im a tech I wouldnt have known to do what they did.
Lots of powering up and down and I think the "6" was the way they had me "reboot" the printer.
