Epson WF-2530 printer problem

Question: Epson WF-2530 printer problem

Hi guys, This is my first post on the forum, so here goes.I have an Epson WF 2530 printer which I bought new from Tesco's around 18 months ago and up to now it has done everything that it's been asked to do, untill today. When I want to print a document it just rolls out a blank sheet and an error report on the lcd display says " Paper out. Load paper and press OK " even though there is ample paper present. Just to rule it out, I have taken the printhead out, cleaned and replaced it as well as replaced the ink cartridgesAnother furum I viewed says that it is a fault with the paper sensor however I've no idea where to locate it.Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks Hamer.

Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

Every time i try to print something with my Epson WF 2530, its says "paper out or loaded incorrectly" even when there is plenty of paper. there is no jam and when i try to print, the paper just shoots out blank. its been working fine for a long time and just suddenly started this between printings yesterday.
Is there any sort of reset?

im using Windows 8.1 and running the printer wirelessly.

Hi
Not sure if this is a hardware or software problem.
Computer is Dell precision workstation with Windows 7 64bit. Printers are Epson Photo R 200 and Epson Photo R 300.
The R 200 was working well on a different computer running on XP. Dont know much about R 300 which I bought some time ago as a standby.
The drivers are specifically for 64 bit downloaded from Epson website.
Putting the R 300 on the computer it does all the right things except put ink on the page, the printer head moves back and forth and sounds as if it ought to be printing.
After head cleaning and nozzle checking (which produced a reasonable print pattern) I tried again with the original result--nothing actually printed on the paper.
Putting the R 200 on I could get nothing at all on the paper with either document printing or printer maintenance printing, again the print head moved backwards and forwards as if it ought to be working and on both printers the paper moved up at the end of each pass.
I would be very grateful for a solution which does not involve buying another printer.
Regards

Hi
My printer has started switching itself off when not connected to my desktop pc via the USB cable. I have taken to working in the kitchen as it is warmer than the study and for the last 3 weeks have been using the Epson remote print function if I needed to print (all been working fine). Today though it didn't print and when I went to check the printer it was off (I had switched it on moments earlier). I turned it on again, it fired up and I left the room to print again and the same thing happened. I then stood and watched and after 20 seconds of being on the printer turns itself off. It allows me to turn it back on but just does the same over and over again. I took the pc back in and connected it via the USB to the printer and all seems fine, prints, copies etc. The moment i took the USB out of my PC the printer went off immediately. Any idea what the issue could be?
Thanks

Hi,

I have recently purchased receipt printers (Epson TM-U220B[usb connection]) to use in conjunction with a POS program. I am running Windows 7 64bit HP

I am unable to even print a test page to them at the moment.

Here are the steps that I have taken:

-Disconnected the printer.
-Uninstalled all EPSON driver software & restarted the computer.
-Reinstalled EPSON Advanced Printer Driver V4.52 (APD_452E) with these configuration settings:
Setup Type
Minimum
Printer Configuration
Add EPSON TM-U220 Receipt
EPSON TM-U220 Receipt[US]
Create a USB port
​-Restarted computer (for good measure!)
-Connected printer.
-Windows then installs device driver automatically with the following commentary:
EPSON UB-U02III - Searching Windows Update
>
EPSON USB Controller For TM/BA/EU Printers - Ready to use
​At this point the printer is shown in Devices and Printers under Unspecified with the name UB-U02III (which it looks like is the model designation for the USB adapter board on the back of the printer).

The installed printer (installed via APD driver) EPSON TM-U220 Receipt printer is showing up as Not available in its status.

What am I doing wrong?? The driver is downloaded directly from Epson on their product page for the U220 (https://download.epson-biz.com/modules/pos/index.php?page=prod&pcat=5&pid=42).

Incidently I get an identical result trying the above on a Windows XP machine.

I hope this is concise and not to waffly!

Thanks
Mike



 

Answer:Epson USB Printer Problem

If you are sure you have followed Epson's installation instructions EXACTLY then your best bet is to call their technical support. You mention that you restarted the computer in the middle of the installation "for good measure". If that is not part of their instructions why would you do that?

I have just put a complete new set of compatible ink cartridges in my Epson DX8400 printer. The printer recognised the cartridges OK. However I was having very bad problems with black printing so I ran several cleaning and printing cycles in an effort to clean the printer nozzles. After several cleaning cycles the printer suddenly said that it could not recognise the cyan, magenta or yellow cartridges (occurred during a cleaning cycle). I have tried reseating the cartridges and also switching on and off the printer but all to no avail.Is it possible that the printer could have corrupted the chip in the ink cartridges. I suppose that I could try another set of cartridges, but I don't want to waste them.Have you any suggestions?

Answer:Problem with Epson printer

Avoid running the Cleaning utility as this will use your ink up very quick.Second: Its bad practice to take out then put back and remove and replace the same carts as this lets air into the cart and mucks up the sync of the Cart with the printer.Firstly can you tell me/us where you got your carts from.

I recently was asked to check a friends Epson Stylus 680 Printer that had stopped working. After making usual checks with no success I uninstalled. On re installing I realized that there was nothing wrong with Printer, it was just out of Black ink, consequently the install would not complete as it was unable to set up properly.
Since inserting new ink cartridge the printer is malfunctioning, a window pops up stating that the Status 3 monitor is unable to function.
I have tried to uninstall again and also add a new printer, but this function does not work and is causing a conflict with the system. The start menu is hanging and the printer only works intermittently.
System is an Intel Celeron with Windows ME system.
Have you any ideas?

Answer:Epson printer USB problem

When you switched on the printer first time what did you do when the Add new hardware wizard popped up. Did you click cancel to the wizard, or did you put the Win98 CD in when it asked you to if you did that?s the problem. You will need to remove Printer in Add Remove programs, and remove all USB in Device Manager after you have removed your printer, then restart computer without the printer, allow windows to reconfigure USB then when it as stoped plug you printer into comp at this stage winWizard will pop up cancel it until it goes away then run your Epson Printer CD with the printer still switched on.

I have an Epson Photo RX420 All In One Printer. A while ago it ran out of ink so I bought some compatible inks and installed them. When I tried to print I got a very faint print both in B&W and colour. I thought I had installed them wrongly as there seemed to be a bit of ink leaking. I tried cleaning the heads through the maintenance app in the printer properties but their was no improvement. I left it for a couple of months and then decided to buy new cartridges.

1. Unplug the power and USB cables from the printer. I pried open my C40UX printer, careful not to break anything. I use a flat blade screwdriver to pry it apart; there are two-three tabs at the back and two at the front. Gently push them in, and then using a bit of force pry apart the cover.2. Next I removed the two (2) waste ink pads. They are located at the back on the left hand side. I used the flat blade screwdriver to lift up the ink pads (they were soaked). Please use rubber gloves as it gets very messy.3. Next I took the pads to the kitchen skin and washed them with just plain hot water until they were white again. I just let the hot water run on them (the pads are about three inches long).4. Once washed I dried them using a hair drier.

My elderly epson stylus photo 750 does not think it is out of black ink, so the 'out of ink light' is not lit and I can't go through the usual procedure to replace the cartridge. If I start the procedure, all that happens is the start up sequence. How do I get the ink carriage to emerge from its housing so that I can change cartridge? Trying to get any sense from the online site is like knitting fog-- can't be done!!!! Any ideas anyone?Thanks in anticipation.

Answer:problem with epson printer

From memory because I HAD but no longer do have a 750.Brutal perhaps, but make the sequence begin and switch off.... A bit like trying to judge when the windscreen wipers are vertical in an old car about to suffer an unsympathetic car wash.There may be other trouble in the background and if the black pathway is dry, it may be worth being very patient - A couple of head cleaning procedures and then leave overnight to let ink diffuse along the pathways and for all micro bubbles to disperse.

Answer:Epson c46 printer problem

Click on the Start button, click HELP, click on the "Index" tab, then type "printers, troubleshooting" (or copy and paste it from here) into the Keywords box, then click on the Display button.

Doing that will allow you to start the Printer Troubleshooter, which will step you through the entire process of checking your printer setup, and that should solve your problem.

Good luck; hope this advice helps you.

EDIT: You can also try the keywords:

"printer setup"

If this is a problem with a networked printer, try these keywords:

"printer sharing, enabling"

"printers, shared, creating"

"printers, shared, default printer"

"printers, shared, printing to"

"printers, shared, setup"

There are other terms as well, but you get the idea...

I have an Epson Stylus Photo 750 connected to my computer by parallel cable, which, until three days ago was printing anything I needed in superb quality.

Three days ago I changed an empty cartridge, and started the printer. It went through a head cleaning sequence, and when that was completed all four lights flashed continuously, and I could do nothing with it.

I searched on the net for any info on this, and found that Epson apparently build in obsolescence with a piece of software which causes an irreversible loss of function after a preset number of headcleaning cycles. They claim that it is to prevent spillage af ink from the waste collection system, but this is obvious nonsense as the ink evaporates and never reaches overflow point (I have stripped the printer down to confirm this and the box is almost bone dry).

I have found and downloaded software known as SSC Service Utility, which is supposed to reset the counter and allow the printer to work, but cannot use it as the PC refuses to recognise the printer at all.

Can anyone suggest a way forward. I am a pensioner, barely making ends meet, and it may be months before I can spare the money for a new printer, and in any case, I don't want to throw away a perfectly good machine if I can avoid it

My Epson Stylus 760 prints OK - only trouble is, each page is badly smudged with ink (where no ink should be!) The smudging has a pattern - litle blobs at about 1cm intervals,both across and lengthwise. The rpinted page looks a mess! Any ideas? Thanks

Answer:Epson Printer problem

Messy answerThe printer has in the base a large abosrbant padthat takes up surplus ink.It is now full.Under the the cartridge track you will see a hole with a black blob in it soft to touch - touch it and get an inky finger.They say there are replacements available - but I have yet to find them and it does mean taking the printer to bits any way.My P/Stylus750 went the same way After much heartache I went and bought a R300Perhaps this is the way to go

My print queue hangs: it states "job processing" and only prints a few blank pages. It prevents me from restarting my Mac unless I unplug the printer. Epson wrote that the way to correct this is to uninstall all espon stuff and install a new driver which I downloaded. I don't know why I don't trust this advice, but can anyone confirm that this is the best method? Thanks.

Recently had to do a complete System Recovery on my Compaq Presario. Following the recovery I am unable to get my Epson Stylus C40UX reinstalled as the default printer. It follows the Installation Wizard all the way through to FINISH, but then when I click FINISH I get this message"

"The file ‘E_DMA113.DLL’ on EPSON Stylus C40 is needed.

Type the path where the file is located, and then click OK.

Copy files from…"

It then shows a directory with many file areas. I have no idea which should be the proper one to use. Can anyone HELP?

Answer:Epson printer problem

This works sometimes. It depends on whether you are installing from the original CD or from a download; but, it is worth a try.

Search the CD for "‘E_DMA113.DL_". Note the underscore instead of the last "L".

If using a dowloaded driver, decompress it and look for the same file within the decompressed group of files.

Hopefully, one of these methods will give tou the file path.

Then again, you may already have that file in your Windows folder or maybe somewhere in your Program files folder. Search the whole drive for it.

Does anyone know if it's possible to set up the printer to have default settings. When I set it up for photographs and photo quality paper, I often forget to reset for normal printing i.e. documents which then take ages to print and probably use more ink. It would be very useful to have it change back to default setting whenever I restart the pc.Thanks.

I bought the Epsom Stylus Color 440 printer several years ago. It's working fine, except for this. Sometimes, when it's printing out a larger document, it stops printing for no apparent reason. That's okay. The problem is that when I try to print off the rest of the pages that the printer didn't print out the first time, it either insists on printing ALL of the document. It won't for example let me print only from page 7 onwards. Or instead of printing out the document, it prints out "gibberish" at the bottom of the page on one line. Like machine language. I need to know how to remove the memory from the printer of my original instruction to it, which it seemingly retains. So that I can easily print out the rest of the pages without starting from page 1 again, or facing gibberish (machine language). Simply stopping the printing process using the printer icon on the desktop screen doesn't do the trick where, as I say, the printer "itself" stops printing out for some strange reason. In this case, I need to remove from the printer memory the first command I gave it. Unplugging the printer for 2 hours usually does the trick, but isn't there a quicker way? The Epson website doesn't give an answer. Thanks.

tried to replace with original still empty cartridges i had at home... and still crazy..

Hi,

I have recently purchased a brand new Epson SX445W printer and have attempted printing both colour and black and white images on glossy A4 paper. The images print with five or more sets of vertical lines going up and down on the paper but I don't believe these are 'banding' lines as they appear to be putting indents into the paper. I printed both full size images and smaller ones and I can see the indented lines in the paper where the image wasn't printed. These are hard to describe but they look like they consist of tiny dots and are very noticeable when printing full size pictures.

Somebody suggested to me that it may be my scanner since I printed out images that I scanned but I don't think that is the issue since I also printed out something else, entirely. There are no options as far as I can see to adjust print settings such as best quality etc. I only have options for paper size, layout, paper type and Red Eye. If it helps, it may be necessary to know that all images had been printed from my SD card, not from my laptop as the printer has a memory card slot.

Thanks for any help!

First, how old is the printer.

Second, define "doesn't work anymore" ....does it come on and try to print? Does it go through the motions and then spits out a blank page?

Third, if it does, have you tried to pull the cartridges out and shake them a little to see if they have any left.

Also check the bottom of the cartridges to see if build up dryed ink has formed.

BTW....did the printer "just stop working one day"?

When I do a print nozzle check invariably there is a colour missing from the print out.Repeated head cleaning sometimes improves,but usually won't cure the problem. Installing a new colour cartridge always cures it.This though means throwing out a refill that still contains plenty of ink.Is it because I'm not using Epson refills-can anyone help?

You could try click hereThe ICC profiles supplied with your EPSON printer are generic profiles i.e. they were created with one printer as an example. Each printer produced may however vary slightly from this original and for perfect results you may need an ICC profile to reflect your own printer's individual characteristics.

Hey everyone. I have been having a problem with my computer recently when I want to print things out. The computer I am talking about is in my computer description titled "Computer 1" It is connected to an Epson Stylus Photo R300. I don't think it is a problem with a printer but more the USB ports on the computer.

This is what happens. I click print on something that I want to print out and it will load the printer software and start to print. Then a pop up box comes up saying "This device can perform faster" and then something about switching it into another USB port (which I can't do as the printer is set to use USB Port 001 only)

Any way what I was wondering is whether there is a way of disabling this pop up box as every time it comes up I get a printer error and it stops printing (I end up with loads of the first page of things I am trying to print )

Thanks in advance to any one that can shed some light on this issue.

Hello,
I have Dell Laptop Inspiron 9300 computer with Windows XP on an English operating system and a Epson PM-950C printer only sold in Japan. (I least I think it's only sold in Japan!) I bought the printer in 2000 when I had a Sony Laptop with a Japanese OS.(Also XP) When I installed the printer on my new computer, the printer dialog box would not appear when I printed. So I went to Preferences, then Utility, and saw that the Epson printer window box was not highlighted in Black like the other options on the page. Obviously, when I click on it, nothing happens. I went to the Japanese Epson web site and downloaded the printer window utility software, then installed it. The printer window was highlighted when I checked it and it also came up when I printed something. One problem; the ink levels don't show up! I have a red light flashing letting me know that I need to change one of the cartridges, but I don't know which one it is!! My printer has seven different color cartridges, and it is a photo printer. Help! My two oldest kids use the printer all the time. I need to get them off my back! I went to the Epson USA website and looked for the printer window utility but couldn't find it.

Can anyone tell me why it should take FOUR Minutes to print a single A4,B & W sheet from my Epson Perfection 1660 Scanner via Smart Panel "Copy" Tab. The R300 takes a minute to grunt and then the Icon shows paper passing through it but nothing happens. Then it prints a couple of lines, stops for a while then starts again for a couple of lines and so on. The final print is O.K. It seems to be doing the job in chunks as though it has too mnay Mbs to handle. Has anyone had this problem Please? Advice on the Settings would be welcome. Scanner via Smart Panel to "File" and "E-mail" is O.K. as is the Printer when printing from a My Docuents File. Ink Cartridges are nearly full and Head cleaning as per Guide Manual carried out. I have been to Epson via e-mail (as I am too deaf for the 'phone) and answered their questions but no further response from them and my hasteners on the "String" are ignored.Any advice would be appreciated. BUCKLAND.

Answer:Copy problem with Epson R300 Printer

I've only just acquired an Epson R300 and have noticed that printing does seem to take an age to start and then complete compared to my former nine-year-old Canon BJC 600e.I've put it down to the fact that the Epson is primarily a photo printer and that the wonderful Canon, although fully equipped for photo and transparency work, was a text and images printer first and foremost.
