Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Flashing lights My one month old printer is indicating that I need to replace a cartridge with the appropriate flashing light. The light above it is also flashing, which I believe shows a paper blockage. Thirdly, the power light is off. Can't find any evidence of a blockage. Can't replace the cartridge because the carriage will not move to the central position so that the cartridge can be removed, although it goes through the motions - i.e. Moves slowly from left to right.

How do you reset the filter reminder warning light?


Filter Replacement
Filter Replacement Indicator:
Your Defender® is equipped with a Filter Replacement Indicator located on the front
panel. Anytime this red indicator flashes, it is recommended that you call your authorized
FILTERQUEEN® Distributor to order a replacement filter. Anytime this red indicator stops
flashing and remains solidly illuminated, it is recommended that you change your filter. To
receive full benefit from your Defender® and to extend your warranty, it is strongly
recommended that you follow the filter replacement schedule suggested above. Under higher
pollution levels, your filters will need to be replaced more frequently.
The Filter Replacement Indicator is operated by filter time in use and is controlled by an
onboard timer. After 11 months of time in use of your Medi-Filter® Cartridge, the Filter
Replacement Indicator will begin to flash. It will continue to flash until the you reach 12
months of time in use, at which time the Filter Replacement Indicator will stop flashing
and remain solidly illuminated.
After replacement of your Medi-Filter® Cartridge, you must reset the Filter
Replacement Indicator's timer. When the timer has been properly reset, the Filter
Replacement Indicator will turn off.
Resetting the Filter Replacement Indicator Timer:
After replacement of your Medi-Filter® Cartridge per the instructions found on page 7, the
Filter Replacement Indicator's timer can be reset by performing the following sequence of
steps:
1 Plug unit into outlet.
2 Press power On/Off switch to the On ("I") position.
3 Allow unit to start running at low speed.
4 PRESS and HOLD both the Up and Down arrow buttons until the Filter
Replacement Indicator starts to blink.
5 Release both the Up and Down arrow buttons.
6 While the Filter Replacement Indicator is still flashing*, again PRESS and
HOLD both the Up and Down arrow buttons until the Filter Replacement
Indicator turns off.
If the steps above have been performed properly, the Filter Replacement Indicator will
turn off and not flash again for 11 months. If the Filter Replacement Indicator remains
on, repeat the steps again.
*Note that in step 6 above, the Filter Replacement Indicator MUST still be flashing when
the buttons are pressed the second time. The Filter Replacement Indicator will continue
to flash for approximately 3 seconds after the buttons are released as required in step 5 above.
Note: Under higher pollution levels, your filters will need to be replaced more frequently.
Note: To order replacement filters, call your authorized FILTERQUEEN® Distributor, or call
1-440-846-7800 for the Distributor nearest you.

Lost my manual, need to change the ink cartridge, help


  1. Look at the indicator light on your Lexmark printer. You'll need to replace ink cartridges when the light flashes or turns red instead of the standard green.

  2. Purchase Lexmark ink cartridges. You can buy the brand name or purchase a generic version that is compatible with your printer. You can shop for low cost ink cartridges from ABC Ink.
  3. Step 3 Remove the old cartridges from your printer. Grip the sides of the Lexmark ink cartridges and pull it out. Dispose of the ink cartridges in a recycle program like the one at Staples or save the cartridges for refill.
  4. Step 4 Install the new ink cartridges after removing the protective tabs. Avoid touching the IC chip when installing the new Lexmark ink cartridges. Replace the cover of the printer.
  5. Step 5 Allow the Lexmark printer to run a nozzle test. Print several pages with the new ink cartridges to make sure you installed the ink cartridges correctly. The indicator light should return to a solid green color.

Changing color cartridge on my epson stylus color 980 printer.


If you need to replace an ink cartridge in your printer, please follow the instructions below:

To confirm which ink cartridge requires replacement, please use the printer's control panel (there is a black ink out indicator, as well as a color ink out indicator ), or the Status Monitor in your computer.

Red light flashing - Low ink
Red light solid - Out of ink

1. Open the printer cover and press the INK (Cleaning) button for 3 seconds. The print head moves to the center and the lights flash.
2. Lift up the ink cartridge clamp. The cartridge rises up from its holder.
3. Remove the cartridge and dispose of it carefully. If ink gets on your hands, wash them with soap and water. If ink gets in your eyes, flush them immediately with water.
4. Unpack the new ink cartridge and remove the yellow tape. You must remove the yellow tape from the top of the cartridge. Do not remove the clear seal underneath the cartridge. Do not touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, or you may inhibit normal operation and printing.
5. Tilt the new cartridge toward you slightly as you insert it. Lower the cartridge so that the tabs rest on the hooks. Do not place the cartridge tabs under the hooks.
6. Press down firmly on the ink cartridge clamp until it snaps in place.
7. If you need to replace the other ink cartridge, repeat steps 2 through 6 before continuing with step 8 (to move printhead over to color (if black was replaced first) press the cleaning button once).
8. Press the INK (Cleaning) button once, and close the printer cover. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system.
9. Wait until ink charging is finished (the power light stops flashing and the red error light goes out).

Using the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility in Windows

1. Open the Printers window by following the appropriate steps for your operating system.

In Windows 2000: Click START > SETTINGS > PRINTERS.

In Windows XP: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > PRINTERS AND FAXES or PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE. (Select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS under PRINTER TASKS if no printers appear.)

In Windows Vista: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE AND SOUND > PRINTERS.

2. Right-click your printer model and select PRINTING PREFERENCES.

3. Click the MAINTENANCE tab.

4. Click the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility icon and follow the on-screen instructions to replace your ink cartridges as necessary.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink. If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.



Using the control panel

1. Turn on the printer.

2. Open the scanner and make sure its support locks in place.

3. Press the STOP button. The print head moves to the ink mark to indicate which cartridge is low or expended.

4. Press the STOP button again.

If another cartridge is low or expended, it moves to the ink mark. Press the Stop button again to see if more cartridges are low or expended.

If no other cartridges are low or expended, the print head moves to the replacement position on the right.

5. Open the cartridge cover.

6. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift the cartridge straight up to remove it. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.

7. Before opening the new cartridge package, shake it four or five times.

8. Remove the cartridge from the package, but be careful not to touch the green chip on the cartridge.

9. Remove the yellow tape from the bottom of the cartridge.

Caution:
Do not remove any other labels or seals, or ink will leak.

10. Insert the new cartridge into the holder and push it down until it clicks into place.

11. Once you replace all the necessary cartridges, close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.

12. Release the scanner support and close the scanner.

13. Press the Stop button to begin charging the ink. This takes about 1 1/2 minutes.
When the On light stops flashing and remains on, ink charging is finished.

Caution:
Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing or you’ll waste ink. If the ink light flashes, press the Stop button and press down all the cartridges securely.
