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!

Further to my post below I have tried the printer and whilst it works, the text is very faded. No warning lights are on however to indiocate that the toners are low. I've tried a colour as well as black and white print but both came out faded black.It is a Epsom Stylus Colour 740 model.

Answer:Epsom printer

I haven't seen your other thread, but have you checked for two things? (1) Your printer may be set to "Draft" print and (2) Have you changed the settings in printer properties to "Black only" or maybe "Mono print". Either of these will give you a faint black output of print. j.

The empty black cartridge was replaced by a full cartridge but the printer refuses to print in black - colour cartridges are OK.Is this known problem ? I would be grateful for any tips.

Answer:Epsom printer 500

Try using the head cleaning utility, supplied with most Epson printers.It can usually be found by right-clicking on the printer icon in Control Panel/Printers; then selecting Properties, the General tab and Printing Preferences button. On the next window look for the Utilities tab.Sometimes the software will put a shortcut to the utility in the Start / Programs.Could also be a duff "new" cartridge.

Answer:Epsom Printer not printing

hello janbilly...epson printers are notoriously fussy about makes of ink cartridge,if your like me and usually buy cheapo`s then you may find you get problems from time to time. i have a 660 and now i always buy epson ink and get fewer problems..and if you dont print for a week or two you should use the utilities and get things pumping again,ink tends to clog the nozzles if its not used for a while.
make sure all your conections are ok and you have the latest drivers installed.
you maye have to run the cleaning/alignment/test page utility a few times before you get it running correctly.
and 3 yrs is not really too long....stick with it a while.
good luck

I've done my best to clean the printer as directed by an earlier thread. It still drags the paper in a liitle slanted but it is better.However............When I was printing yesterday the red light came on to tell me (I think) that the black ink has run/is running out. As it still printed I carried on printing.My wife had to run some college stuff off today. When I returned from footy with my lad she told me that the prinet had given up the ghost half way thro' printing a number of documents. I told her that the balck cartridge had more than likely run out and I would replace it which I did. The printer red light stayed on however and nothing happened when I tried to print. I eventually got an error message in the little progress box. I assumed that I had a more serious error and reinstalled the driver again without success. I then unplugged it and left it for an hour and lo and behold it now works.

Answer:Epsom 740 Printer issue

Hi again Halmer. Switching the printer off for a time after replacing the cartridge can do two things. One it thoroughly discharges any memory so that the printer is completely reset, and two it gives the ink time to get right into the print head. As for the paper still skewing slightly, the 740 is quite an old printer, and they are made so cheaply that yours is probably well past it's intended life span, but with care and occasional cleaning it may give a few more years service yet.

My Epson Stylus SX415 does not respond when I press the Stop/Clear button. It stops and displays that it is clearing but doesn't get any further. When I switch it off then the next time I switch it back on it starts printing the original document that I wanted to stop printing. The only way I can print the next document is to accept that I can't cancel the original one. I have to print out a document that I wanted to cancel, using up lots of paper and ink cartridges when this happens to be a particularly long document.

Answer:Epsom Printer Does Not Stop/Clear

I stop printing from the print manager in windows, not the printer. I have this before, you can clear all you want, but unless windows gets a 'this is printed nod' from the printer, windows keeps saying print. You should see a status box somewhere in windows with the print status and queue, that is where you find the cancel print options.

I have an Epsom Stylus 400 printer. It has two problems. The first one is a propensity while printing to eject and start printing on the next sheet of paper. If I catch it in time and remove the paper from the magazine and rerun the original page it will space down to where it left off and continue the printout. This is an intermittent problem. It does it on text or pictures. I can be printing from Microsoft Word, a picture from the Internet or a picture
from my own files. If I cancel the print and resubmit the print it works fine. Any ideas ? I am running under Windows 95. I have 40 megabytes of memory and am running at 233 mhz.

Answer:Kyocera 2530 scanning to network pcs?

we have a Lanier 2135 (i belive) that does network scanning.

Basically, you set up the scanner/printer/copier/coffee maker/jukebox on the network.

Then install the management software on a computer that will never be turned off (server), then the software should be able to find the scanner via broadcast/responce, and establish the connection.

Then you should be able to assign a directory on the network where the management software will dump the processes scans.

Ok, so I've got a Dell Dimension 2530 a client brought in the other day wanting a fresh install of XP Home Edition on there.

Having being an older system with no recovery partition and hanging on the windows screen more times than not I popped in my XP HOME OEM DVD.

FIRST FAIL - No DVD drive...wouldn't read my external DVD drive...Having plenty on hand I popped one in for his main ROM Drive.

Booted up into the DVD fine...DELETED his old partition and reformatted just fine.

SECOND FAIL - Wake up and the installation hung up right near the end before you enter a user name and your authentication of windows for the system.

Normally when something like this has happened to me I can reboot the PC and it will resume the installation. This time that was not the case it posts, then goes to a black screen with a white blinking underscore for about 40 seconds like its trying to access my DVD...then the screen goes blank completely. ALT f4 wouldn't work and it sat there for a period of time...SO option one...I did some things in BIOS so I restored it to default....to no avail...

This same thing happens to me when trying to boot to JUST the ROM drive.

Please note that if the printer driver is not in the list in Devices and Printers, I suspect that the printer is currently not compatible with Windows 8. In this case I suggest you contact the printer manfuacturer for more information.

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.
any suggestions would be appreciated.

Question: Epsom 800

I have been reading with great interest the problems with the Epsom 740.I have an Epsom 800; the black ink cartridge ran out of ink and was replaced. The printer indicates that there is now black ink but will not print in black - the colours are OK.Any clues ? Many thanks, Colin

Answer:Epsom 800

You may find this helpful, when installed & running access it from the taskbar. It will enable you to clean just the black cartridge without using the colour up. click here

Question: epsom 670?

Any tips on getting an epsom670 printer to print?
My mother has one of these & after running out of ink, she installed new cartridges (black & colour) but the thing will not print anything!
We have run the cleaning utility about 10 times but no results. The printer makes all the right sounds like it is trying to print but has no ink so i reckon it is an ink flow problem?

Answer:epsom 670?

I don't have enough posts to post a link..so search for "konica minolta drivers windows 10" and it will take you to the manufacturer page. Long story short, they list the schedule for releasing W10 drivers. Until they do, you are stuck.

Question: Epsom DX 7450

I am looking for a replacement all in one printer that will work with Vista. I have been looking at the Epsom DX7450. I presently have a HP 3180 which is absolutely useless, with no end of errors with Vista and I have the latest software. Any better suggestions! J.B.

Answer:Epsom DX 7450

See another thread today. I had an Epson all in one - expensive. Fine pictures etc but ink froze just out of warranty and deep clean, calls to Epson would not restore it. I have had a Canon MP760 for about 18 months and am sure there is an updated version. I find it first class. 2 black ink carts and 3 colour, and a seperate print head which could be replaced in the event of an ink "clod" - but no problems, has a built in card reader, acts as a photocopier, scans up to A4, and slides and negs. Local Cartrige World like Canons and say Epsons prone to ink freeze. Prints photos very well and I use Staples Pearl photo paper ( a bit cheaper than Canon)

Answer:Epsom Priner HELP PLEASE

sounds like you have the wrong version of the driver installed for your OS. uninstall the software completely and see if you can use one of ME's generic drivers to install the printer after a reboot.

Seems Epson don't provide a specific driver for ME for that printer. You could try some of these if the above doesn't work.

Question: Epsom DX6050

Hi, I hope someone can give me some help. My printer has come up with a code E90, which I am told is the ink well is full. Does anyone know how to empy this inkwell without paying out a small fortune taking it to an engineer.Hope someone can help.

Answer:Epsom DX6050

Google finds:Sounds like the ink tank is full and the printer is calling for a service engineer - don't panic! Every time you switch on your printer, or change the ink, the printer cleans the heads by flushing ink through them. This leads to a load of waste ink in the bottom of your printer. In order not to get a messy desk Espon have put a counter on the flushing activity and the E90 error is saying this counter has reached the maximum.To fix this error you need to reset this counter. Try this little utility click here it worked for me

i bought the above yesterday after my brother printer stopped working. i managed to install everything except the printer driver. it couldnt find the driver although recognised there was new hardware?. i had put in the cd but it ignored it.i have had a situation before with vista(which i wish i had never bought) and it wouldnt recognise an ipod or mps player.

i managed to work through the help section which confused me and in the end the nearest i got was error in INF but i have ni idea what that means.

i am using the usb that came with the brother computer. the man at currys said it should be ok and the only one they had in the shop was a 3 metre cable which was too long. i bought itas i needed a all in one printer and couldnt find the dc117 brother as a replacement.

i am very frustrated by this and would be grateful for any help as i need it asap!

many thanks

Good morning all,
I have an ?Epsom Stylus C70+? ? which I must admit is a few years old now ? and with which I am having a, or perhaps some, problem(s). My computer is about 6 years old, dual core, started out using ?XP?, was upgraded to ?Vista?, and I now use ?Windows 7 Home Premium?. I did not use the printer for a few months, and then started printing with it again a few months ago. A few weeks ago, I think, I started getting a dialogue box appear, so I clicked on ?close? and it disappeared, to then re-appear instantly, so I click on ?close?, and then the printing goes ahead, or at least I thought it did, normally. Now I am not so sure, and I hope someone can tell me if the printer should ? or not ? be thrown out.
What has happened is that I was sent a 16 page ?.pdf? document, which I needed to print out. I got the document displayed on my screen, clicked on ?print? and then I clicked on ?properties?, I clicked on ?text? and ?check ink levels?, and then ?OK?. At this point the dialogue box appears with the statement ?Function address Oxef871a45 caused a protection fault ( exception code Oxc0000005 ). Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed?. At this point I click on ?close? and it ? as I said - disappears, to then instantly re-appear. I, again, click on ?close?, and it disappears again and I can then print what I want, except that I can?t. Of the 16 pages in the document, the first 7 were pri... Read more

Question: epsom DX4450

I've had an Epsom DX4450 for home business use since March 2008, and have used cheap(er) compitable inks, as they are available around the corner in a local shop. I print on A4 160gms card, about 400 sides a month, plus more paper than that, using black mostly.

Now it permanently leaves horizontal gaps in text, and even started smudging last week. No matter how many times I run the print head cleaning run, it only clears it for about 10 sides then I have to do it again. It has also started saying cartridges are empty when they are obviously not.

Q - have I worn out the print heads or caused permanent damage through using compatible ink, or through using card, or is it just not designed for that kind of monthly volume?

Q - If so, what do I get instead? Having looked around, the dreaded "disposable printer" age is virtually on us. I was in PC world all morning and couldn't make a decision due to the extortionate ink/toner replacement costs. Should I just get the cheapest Canon/Epsom inkjet with a full cartridge then dispose of it?

As nearly all the printing I do is black& white, can I/should I get a mono laser printer that has replacement toner prices of around £25-30 tops?

I have a friend 75 yrs old who has a C60 printer bought new about 6mths ago. I have just replaced the cartridges for him with genuine Epsom replacement cartridges. Couldn't get the printer to print until I had run the head cleaning cycle at least 4 times. Question is this normal for this printer. A simple yes or no will do.Regards Noels.

Answer:Epsom C60 Problem ?

If by "couldn't get the printer to print out" you mean it did print but was poor quality or no-ink then yes this is something I've seen many times with epson printers and epson ink - though not so common with chepaer ink from Choice Stationary.
