There's something going on and I can't figure it out. My Epson R1800 keeps resetting itself. I think . Here's what I'm seeing..... I could be sitting at my desk, then the R1800 go through a cycle all by itself. I would hear the "bleep" from my PC as if I unpugged the USB cable and reinserted it. It would then come back on. This also happens sometimes during a print, and the printer would eject the print halfway. I changed USB cables, I changed the USB port, I unistalled and reinstalled the Epson software..nothing changed. Any idea what's going on?
You have done all the usuall checks, but you may have a usb power problem, try the printer without any other usb peripheral in and see if it stays connected. If not, then the usb connection or workings in the printer may be faulty and keeps disconecting, hence the bing bong as it re connects to windows. You may have faulty hardware, leave the printer disconnected from usb and mains for 15 mins or so then try again.
