Epson Printer Errors
If your printer is displaying an error code or message on the control panel, search for `Error code` on your product`s FAQs tab.
The common causes of “General Error” are: Something in the path of the printhead (like bits of paper or something that`s been dropped in) Incompatible cartridges (Printer can`t/won`t recognise them) Autohead Cleaning & insufficient ink in cartridge(s) [PX/TX700W <-> Artisan 837 models]
The Paper LED flashing can be caused by no paper in the manual feed slot, a paper jam, the front cover is open, the back cover is open, dust on the drum, or not having a drum installed. Be sure that the drum unit and toner cartridge assembly is installed in the machine before continuing.
Remove any printouts or paper remaining in the printer. Load more paper. If this message appears during a print job, reset the printer by pressing the Pause button for 3 seconds, then load paper and send the job again. The paper source setting in the printer driver is different from the control panel.
The reset key is a single use key and once used cannot be used again. All EPSON printers have inbuilt counters that count up the number of pages a printer produces, the number of head cleans executed and various other attributes. Once a critical level is reached the printer will enter its service mode.
Restoring the factory-set defaults returns most of the settings to the factory defaults. It will not reset the page count, tray size, or language.
If the screen flickers only when a video signal is input, try replacing the cable connecting the projector and video device. If Light Output is set to Low (Eco), change this to High and try projecting an image for about two hours to see if it still flickers.
This is a common issue and can arise in virtually any projector, but this issue is more common in certain models of projectors. The flickering is caused by what is called “arc wander.” The point at which the arc strikes begins to move slightly on the electrode and makes a track that the arc “wanders” along.
When you see a flashing light by data that means that a print job has been released to that printer but is still processing. This typically happens when someone is printing a larger file size job.
It is time to replace the lamp when: The projected image gets darker or starts to deteriorate. The message LAMP REPLACE appears on the screen when the lamp comes on and the lamp warning light is flashing orange. To maintain projector brightness and image quality, replace the lamp as soon as possible.
Ink and paper lights blinking alternately means that your internal “waste ink pads” are full and need resetting/cleaning out. Check your Epson Status Monitor (on PC) for any error messages – if it says “service required” or “… end of service life” then it`s the waste pads.
