On an Epson WF-4630, what does error code 0x97 mean and how do I correct it?
I am on my second printer with the error. Epson explained it is a motherboard failure. The error is not caused by a PC or the software on it. Instead, this is a printer hardware failure.
After exchanging the printer, the replacement printer has now dies from the same error. The problem starts as blurry printing and progresses to the full hardware failure. Once the Hardware fails and you get the error code, there is nothing an end user can do. The motherboard needs to be replaced.
My printers were working fine up until I swapped out the factory cartridges that shipped with the printer. In both of my cases, there were no issues or symptoms until I started using the Epson XL cartridges. As soon as I installed those, the symptoms started to show. Within a couple of months after swapping in the XL cartridges, the motherboard dies.
1) Call Epson and complain, make them log the details even if it is out of warranty. This helps establish the pattern and knowledge of the issue.
2) Swap printer if under warranty. They may want a credit card to charge in case they do not receive the bad printer back. Just resend it in the box the replacement came in. Epson supplies shipping labels and covers the shipping costs.
MY EPSON WF-4630 PRINTER IS STUCK ON oxf4 AND WE CAN'T CLEAR IT. WHAT DO WE DO??
If you are lucky, the 0xF4 error indicates a foreign object (a scrap of paper) in the gears. That would translate to PF driver mechanism overload. Another cause would be a contaminated encoder scale. Fixing either of these will require you to disassemble the printer. Here are some tips for taking apart the printer: https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/Repairing+EPSON+B-510DN+Error+0xF2+or+0xF3/11767
However, the 0xF4 error could mean that the encoder board or the motor have failed. These errors can only be fixed by a service technician. If your printer is under warranty, you should call for service. Otherwise decide if you want to risk taking it apart and finding that you can't fix this error. It may be cheaper to replace the unit.
I hope this helps.
How can I reset the density level?
Two places to check and make changes. One is on the printer menu itself. Hit menu and navigate to print options. The second will be on your computer. When you go to print something a menu will pop up for a printer selection. It will also have an advanced button. Hit that and it will get you into an area to change the printing in multiple ways.

Printing avery labels on epson workforce 630
My Epson XP-7100 would not print Avery labels no matter what settings I used for the paper, weight, format in the printer properties. So I used the PRINT function in Word and did "Microsoft Print to PDF". Then I used the resulting pdf and printed it onto the label sheet in my Epson XP-7100. Worked great.
Does seem that if Epson printers can't print using the label file in Word, that at least Epson would put a work-around solution on their website. I had to figure this one out on my own. Although it is easy and relatively quick to do, I took a lot of time to come up with a way to print my Avery labels. Epson, get on the ball!
