Error E2.5 refers to the asf (assemply sheet feeder) in otherwords its the feeder that pulls in the paper that is malfunctioning. The whole machine needs to be stripped before you can even think about the problem. For a trained canon engineer (Me) it takes 1 to 2 hours to strip and usually the sheet feeder needs to be replaced. Probably with the costs involved it just is not worth it. Take a tip from me, Buy a new machine!! but before you do just make sure nothing has fallen into the machine and caused it to jam..

Hp office jet 5610 wont print colors correctly


Some printer software that detect ink levels won't recognize a cartridge that's been refilled. They treat the cartridge as empty although you've filled them with ink. You can try removing the HP software that pertains to the printing functions only (not the scanner abilities). You can also do a Power reset. Remove the printer cartridges, turn off the power, remove both the Power cord and USB cord (if applicable) for 10 minutes. After reconnecting the USB and power cords, install the cartridges as you normally would. The printer should treat them as new.

How to change ink cartridges on an Epson CX 3800


Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start replacing a cartridge you must complete all steps in one session.

1. Make sure the Epson CX printer is on.
2 Make sure the document cover is closed, then open the scanner
Caution: Do Not open the scanner when the document cover cover is open.
3. Press and release the " ink " button. The ink cartridge moves to the check position and the
" On " and " ink " lights flash. If one of the cartridges is low or empty, the printer moves the
cartridge to the _ink out mark.
Note: Don't hold down the " ink " button for 3 or more seconds or the printer starts cleaning the print head.
Caution: Do Not move the print head by hand; this may damage the printer, always press the ink
button to move it.
4. Press the " ink " button again
a. If more than one cartridge is low or empty, the next cartridge moves to the_ink out position.
b. If all of the empty or low cartridges have been identified, the print head moves to the ink
cartridge replacement position.
5. Open the cartridge cover.
6. Squeeze the tab at the back of the empty/low cartridge and lift it straight out.
7. Before you open the new ink cartridge package shake it four or five times, then remove it
from the package.
Caution: Do Not remove or tear the label on the cartridge; otherwise ink will leak.
Do Not touch the green chip on the front of the cartridge, this can damage the
ink cartridge.
8. Place the new ink cartridge into the cartridge holder and push it down until it snaps into
place.
a. Replace any other cartridges that need to be replaced.
9. Close the ink cartridge cover and press it until it clicks into place.
10.Close the scanner.
11. Press the " ink " button The print starts charging ink and the " On " light starts flashing. This
takes about one minute. When it's finished the " On " light stops flashing and remains on.
and the " ink " light goes out.
Caution: Never turn off the printer while the " On " light is flashing or you'll waste ink.
Note: If the " ink " light stays on ( not flashing ), the ink cartridge may not be installed correctly.
Press the " ink " button again and reinstall the ink cartridge until it clicks into place.

How do i install new cartridges into my tx printer first time user never changed before


With the printer on but not busy (flashing light), open the scanner unit. (Lift the scanner until the bracket on the right locks.)

If the cartridges are completely expended:

Press the Stop button on the printer, the print head should move to line the expended cartridge with the empty ink mark. Press Stop again and the next empty cartridge should line up with the mark. Continue to press Stop until the print head moves to the cartridge replacement location (after noting which cartridges need to be replaced).

One cartridge at a time, shake the new cartridge 5 times before opening the package.

Remove the new cartridge from the packaging and remove the yellow tape from the cartridge. Be careful not to damage the hooks on the side of the cartridge and do not touch the green IC chip. Leave the transparent seal in place.

Squeeze the tab at the back of the cartridge you want to replace and then lift the cartridge up. Then put the new cartridge straight into that slot and press down until it clicks.

Repeat this for all empty cartridges. Then close the scanner unit and press Stop. Wait until the light stops flashing and the empty ink error light goes out. The unit will charge the ink system while the light is flashing.

If the empty ink remains flashing or is on with the print head in the home position, then a cartridge may not be properly inserted. Press Stop and then push down on the cartridges. See http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/spc/stylustx100tx101/guide/html/ink_4.htm for pictures and images.

If the ink isn't expended, use the Ink Replacement utility in the Epson software. For Windows, this is part of Printing Preferences in the Maintenance tab. Open the Devices and Printers (slightly different name in older versions of Windows) control panel. Then right click on the printer and choose Printing Preferences.

I hope this helps.

Ink light of my tx101 keeps blinking


Hello, Amit.

From FixYa, give this a try:

Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.

Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.

Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.

After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.

Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

Hope this helps.

Try unpluging your printer for a few minutes, turning it back on and printing a test page. This worked for me.

I have brought a replacement cartridge (black) for the Epson D92 stylus printer I folowed the usuel steps and sucsesfully printed 4 or 5 b&w pages now the printer does not seem to except the cartridge...


This may or may not work on your model

"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."

The Protection Counter referred to above prevents you from printing once the printed pages counter reaches a predetermined threshold.

If this doesn't work, let me know.
