Poor image quality
hotoPC 650 captures images in 24-bit color (16.7 million colors). Your pictures will not display maximum image quality if your monitor or computer's video controller doesn't support this color depth. Additionally, if your pictures are taken in 1154 x 864 mode, try increasing your video resolution above 640 x 480. You may need to upgrade your system to achieve the best possible image quality. If your pictures look better on the screen than when you print them out, you may need to upgrade your printer. An EPSON Stylus ink jet printer, for example, provides excellent image quality. If you used drag and drop to insert your pictures, they may appear grainy. Try importing them into your documents instead.
Powerlite 420 image upside down. How do I turn it around?
you will need to change the projection mode in order to flip the image:
Turn on the projector and display an image

Prints and scan OK but printing is very poor.
Run the printer through the head cleaning cycle and then print a test sheet to see if you get the proper pattern. You may have to do this several times. If the printer is seldom used the head nozzles get clogged. There is also a calibration cycle and that is used if the lines don't line up properly.It's in the manual or can be obtained from Epson online.
One day it was working and literally the next it
I'm afraid that it sounds like a fatal fault. I had one many years ago and enjoyed using it immensely. I seem to be saying this to a lot of people at the moment, but I think it's time for a new camera. I doubt that epson have any spares left to fix it for you. Sometimes they can be picked up on eBay for a song.
I have Epson Photo PC
To be honest I think the camera, although great in its day has given you good service, unless changing the batteries or gently pulling on the camera contacts to make them give better contact with the batteries works I think that it is what is known as 'beyond economic repair' I. Even. Time to buy a new camera. Sorry to be the bringer of bad news.
My Epson R-d1 start to
Try reformatting the memory card on the camera. If this doesn't work try a new SD card.
I used the wrong charger
Sorry about that, it sounds like you have definitely burnedout the mother board and as these cameras are Vvery sensitive to over voltage, swapping the one board may be an expensive way to fault find. I would recommend contacting Epson and getting a repair through them. Get a quote first, as it may be cheaper to buy another came there are lots on the market now with much higher specs at very affordable prices.
Printer will only print purple
on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.
