How to Identify and Fix Common Problems ?

Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced technical support :

Make sure the scanner is turned on. Turn off your computer and scanner, then check the USB cable connection between them to make sure it is secure. The scanner may not work properly when your computer is in standby mode (Windows) or sleep mode (Mac OS X). Restart Epson Scan and try scanning again.
Start the Epson Copy Utility in one of these ways. Press the Copy button on the scanner. Windows: Select or Start > All Programs or Programs > EPSON Creativity Suite > Copy Utility > EPSON Copy Utility.
Why is my Epson printer skipping lines when printing? Apart from a clogged printhead, one other potential culprit is the electronic connection of your cartridges with your printer. Try removing your cartridges from your printer, and then shutting your printer down.
If a Firewall on your computer is active, it may be rejecting the necessary network connection needed for the network scanning software to operate properly. Disable the Firewall on your computer and try the network scanning again. Temporarily change your firewall/security settings to allow network connection.
However, there are a few common reasons that pop up the most: Loose or damaged cables: If the wires are worn out, it might prevent you from connecting to your scanner. Missing drivers: Your computer can`t properly “talk” to your scanner if the right drivers aren`t installed.
Reset the copy settings in the LCD panel

Press the Setup button on the control panel. The Setup light is on and the Setup menu appears in the LCD panel. Press the Down button until Copy Settings appears, and then press the Right button. Press the Down button to select Factory Settings, and then press the Right button.

Changing the Scan Mode

To change the scan mode, click the arrow in the Mode box in the upper right corner of the Epson Scan window. Then select the mode you want to use from the list that appears. Note: The mode you select remains in effect when you start Epson Scan the next time.

Epson Stylus C64 in problems, Help!!!!
ANSWER : a lucky tip – if all else fails and you don’t have a PC instead of a Mac, try what I did on my C63. When the head finished moving and both red lights flashed with a “general error’ message, turn off the printer power supply and physically slide the head from its rest position to the far left of the printer. This seems to re-set the “foreign body” trigger. Turn the power back on, the head slowly moves back to the rest position and hey presto the lights have stopped flashing and the printer works! Sounds clumsy but you have nothing to lose trying it, the cost of repair exceeds the value of a 10 year old printer.

Need help for cleaning epson r300, have a kit
ANSWER : Don’t worry about the paper towel. Keep the heads as far to the right as you can and the fluid will just go into the waste sponge underneath. There’s nothing you can damage with the fluid. I wouldn’t worry about the pad that got torn. Just insert the syringe in the nozzle and gently push the fluid down into the heads. This site sold tens of thousands of those kits and I guess the instructions were pretty good because there was never a single complaint.
