Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson Stylus printer

Hey Scrodamoon, I thought I would run this by you.

I was over at my sisters house. She has a Epson Stylus that isn't feeding paper anymore. I don't work on ink jets. I only do the laser stuff. I can get you a model number on the printer if you need it. The one I listed is incorrect. The utilities aren't working and the printer was moved about 100 miles back and forth within the last 8 months. That could have had something to do with I'm sure.

Switching USB ports didn't do anything. Printer indicates off line in the control panel. Intermittent on manual paper feed. Printer carriage does operate in all modes. Haven't been able to print on it yet.

Let me know if you have any ideas.

    No grinding noise. No strage sounds. I think I might just try the cable. I left a message to her to get the model number. As soon as I get I will let you know.

    I wonder is the paper sensor broke or got messed up when it was moved?

    I finally got the model number it's a 740.

    The X1240 I couldn't get to download. My email provider keeps blocking me. I can post them to my ftp server for you though.

    Lexmark is being lame about some of their drivers.

    I had to go through a live chat session with lexmark to get them. For some reason there being selective about what Windows XP drivers to use.

Well off the top of my head I would double check the usb cable. since the cables tend to get breaks in them when not fully stationed for long periods of time.

If you could give me the exact model of the printer it would be definatly of alot more help.

then I would be able to pin point a problem point with the unit but also what I would do would be to remove the paper roll and the paper tray and make sure that there is no jams.

last time it was working was there any grinding noises or abnormal sounds??

let me know and ill do my best to help you out on this issue.

    oh hey again I see you sent the one person your email to give them the x1240 drivers if you have them you can email them to me at [email protected] and I will put them on my server more people respond to that better then the email thing for some odd reason.

    I am working on the hard to find drivers for certain printers and going to have them on my servers as well just cause it seems there is not that many complete driver lists on the manufacturers websites.

Just a thought,as I had a similar problem.The instructions are abysmal,but it may be worth having a look where you feed the paper in and squeezing the grey plastic gizmo,and moving it to the left to allow the paper to enter the feed properly.

Epson Stylus CX3200 ( loud noise like paper is jammed) error message comes up.

By pulling the paper out backwards your sister may have caused a gear to jump. You could try pulling a piece of paper out in the other direction and maybe the gear will jump back into place. Otherwise you will probably have to have the printer serviced.
