Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Hello, I do not know if my other query was sent successfully, so I will do this again. I have an epson aculaser c8500 which I have not used for quite sometime. I tried to print something today and it is still working okay, except that I noticed that the printouts are not as crisp as it used to. There are some areas on the printouts that are faded or washed out. Do I need to perform a nozzle clean? How do I do this. Thank you so much. kyliedee

SOURCE: yellow ink does not come out.

Its possible that your printer is fooled to think that the yellow ink level is lower than it really is. not uncommon. Have you changed the different carts on different occasions? You should try resetting the printer. I can tell you that the stylus 500 is reset by turning off, then back on while holding down the Load/Eject button, can't say if it will do the trick on your r300. BTW - epson printers do not like refills or generic - they will clog. I ran across the following cleaning method on the web, it might help you: "Follow this procedure AT YOUR OWN RISK for all I know I may have damaged my printer irreparably, but it does not appear so.) With the power off I manually moved the print heads to the left exposing the pad under the color head. I used several cotton swabs to soak up as much old ink from this pad as I could. I then liberally applied rubbing alcohol to the pad with a cotton swab. About three swabs worth, saturating the pad. I manually returned the print head to *exactly* the same position it was originally in. I turned on the power. This activated the cleaning sequence. (You might also want to press the color head cleaning button to make sure that at least one cleaning cycle runs with the alcohol on the pad.) I turned off the power. Then, while holding down the color cleaning button, I turned the power back on. This activates the self test. By the time the printing of the second sheet of the test was half way completed I had all my colors back."

SOURCE: Epson Photo RX620: Printing Pink Lines

Hi,

None of these answers are accurate.  I know precisely what your problem is, and you aren't going to like what I have to say.  What you are experiencing will happen eventually to every Epson printer and there is nothing you can do about it other than to buy a new printer.  I have an Epson Stylus Photo 895 ( a 500 dollar printer in its day), which has the same issue.  I am just waiting for my ink cartridges to run out in order to buy a new one.

Endless research on google has turned up that there is no solution to this problem.  The issue you are having is with the Epson print head, which uses piezo technology.  What that means is that unlike HP or Canon printers which are thermal, piezo uses a small piezoelectrical cell to force ink out of the chamber.  It has advantages over thermal in that thermal requires a precise temperature to get ink on the page (what actually happens is that ink is heated, it forms a bubble, and the bubble bursts onto the page, hence the name BubbleJet).  Therefore, the ink has to have fairly precise thermal ink properties making it more expensive to manufacture.  Also, the ink on a BubbleJet (or HP) is wetter when it hits the page, and since the ink is heat resistant or order to properly form the bubble, the printer needs to incorporate a fast drying technology which consumes more energy.  The massive advantage of thermal is that the print head is on the cartridge, not on the printer itself; change your cartridges, get a brand new print head.  It makes cartridges more expensive, but reduces problems such as what you are experiencing.

Piezo on the other hand, always shoot ink through the same print head.  Once the head become damaged over time, the piezoelectric cell is no longer accurately pushing out the ink, and there is nothing you can do about it.  If you are lucky, it is only dried ink in the print head, but I can almost guarantee you that it is not.  Dried ink can be cleaned by repeated head cleanings, even manual ones involving rubbing alcohol.  However, I know that those pink lines are caused by the deterioration of the cell, and cannot be fixed.  If if were only dried ink, you wouldn't be limited to just pink lines on the page, you would see other colours.  If the cell is not doing its job, the lines are always pink (often called magenta when you google this problem).  The solution is to acquire a new print head.  Unfortunately, the cost of replacing an Epson print head is IDENTICAL to the cost of a new Epson printer.

So basically you have no choice, you need to buy a new printer.  Were I you, I would purchase a new thermal inkjet printer so that you get a new print head with every cartridge.  Look around before you buy to find out exactly how much the cartridges will cost, and then you will know which brand to buy.  Although piezo *can* make for a cheaper printer at the outset, Epson simply charged what HP and Canon do for their replacement cartridges because that is what people are used to paying, but you really do get more in a thermal inkjet catridge.

Sorry for the bad news,
DD.

This is a Transfer Belt Error - "Worn Out".
This is not a consumable item. Have had to contact Epson direct who have arranged for a service engineer to replace the offending item.

SOURCE: Problem for Epson AcuLaser C8500

This error code is displayed when there's a temporary "data error", means transferring data from computer to Printer to make the print outs.
It could be a corrupted or interrupted print job. It's also possible that the Data cable (usb cable) is loose or not properly connected on the computer or on the printer.
Try the following Steps:
First of all, disconnect usb cable from the printer and from the computer (unplug both the ends of the cable) Leave it Off for few minutes and then print a test page or status sheet. (do this before you connect it to the printer) Verify that there's no pending print Queues in the Print Status, if so Cancel them. Now reconnect the usb cable to the computer and on the printer. You are ready to test the printer.
If there's memory installed, please reseat it. Sometimes it's important to restart your computer. So I would suggest you to restart your computer while you keep the printer off.

If you need further help, let me know.


Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Where can i find a epson Aculaser Y dev unit from please


The Y toner cartridges are still being produced by Epson. However not many stores in UK stock them. They are readily available on eBay. You will have a choice of originals or compatibles, and a choice of standard or high capacity cartridges.
I normally stick to originals, and pay around 20 UK pounds for standard and 40 UK pounds for high capacity ones.
Compatibles are about half of those prices, but I have found wide variation in quality.
If you are not using a lot, then originals are preferable.
Let me know if I can be of further help

Paper Jam at A but nothing there


If you clear the jam and close the machine up again, does the print job eventually print OK. You may have to clear the jam several times before the machine prints it successfully. After the first successful print, does the machine then print ok, until the next time it is left idle for some time? If this is the case, I have a fix for you

What you hoovered off is the developer. This is required by the print process. Hoovering it off means there is no way for the toner to get onto the paper. You must replace all the developer units and possibly the toner too. It will be cheaper to by a new printer i think.

You could try a claim on your insurance if you are covered for accidental damage.

In future, maybe you should call an engineer - it is usually cheaper than a new printer.
