Epson Color Stylus Error Codes

Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by Blaine (1/31/02 12:10 PM) reply + / -
I am currently having a problem with my Epson Stylus Color 640 printer. I cannot find any documentation here or at Epson's web site.

I am getting all lights flashing, that is the paper light, black and color light as well as the power light all flashing at once.

I have tried a few things, making sure no paper is jammed. I've tried removing the ink and turning it back on to reset it but strangly enough, it thinks that their is still ink in it and tries to work anyway only to end up with the same 4 flashing lights.

Does anyone have a clue as to what this might be?

Thanks

Blaine

That's maintenance error, replace pads and reset.

To reset try This...

1.Power on with "load/eject" and "cleaning button"
2.After "load/eject" light turns on press cleaning button.

We have the same problem with the Epson 640.
ALL the lights flash. I have replaced the ink pads, but cannot reset it properly. I have tried what is suggested but it does not work.

Well I couldn't get the printer to reset either.
I let my printer die many months ago. I've pretty much decided that their are better printers on the market I could buy instead of trying to make this lemon work.

Thanks to all who have responded tho.

I finally reset the Epson printer with the codes that I have. The secret is in the timing


Re: Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by Scott (2/9/03 7:50 AM) reply + / -
It sounds like the waste ink overflow drain is full and needs to be replaced or cleaned. Then you have to do an eeprom reset.

I have a service manual that tells you how to do it.

Send me an email and I will send you the procedures.

I am having trouble with my Epson Stylus C42UX. I just got it and everytime I try to print something, I get an error message telling me there is a paper jam. There is no paper in it. The trouble started shortly after I replaced the black ink cartridge with a generic one. Could this be causing me problems or could it be something else. Please help!!! I'm ready to through the thing away. I have only had it for a couple months.

See www.findmanual.net - they have all service manuals and service programs. Due to them I fixed thesame error on me C20! They arefriendly!


Re: Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by luciferus (2/15/03 5:40 AM) reply+1 + / -
Becky, try this :
- enter bios setup, and change the parallel port settings to ECP
- if that doesn't work, is either the cable or the drivers u are using :)

Re: Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by Rick Matthews (3/18/03 4:48 AM) reply + / -
anyone have an idea what the following means AS I do believe that my Epson 860A IS working to a certain extent: "A Communication error has occured. Check all cable connections and make sure all devices are on. If the device was turned off during printing, cancel the print job. If the error still does not clear, see the manual's troubleshooting section to cancel the error." Using Win98, other printers work and I have swapped different interface cables thinking the twisted pairs are duds. Test pages work but I think they'd work even when the printer was disconnected from the actual PC. Just bought this thing off someone, didn't have drivers so I downloaded them from Epson (9 floppies and also extras for the Stat Mon Utility). All are installed and seem to be correct. Anybody know if this is a quirk of Epson's printers?

Hi, all. I've been reading all your comments. My Epson 740 quit right in the middle of a print job. All the lights are flashing. I tried to download the manual from www.findmanual.com. It came in a Zip format that for some reason I can't open. All I want is to know how to reset the printer to get it to start working again. I cleaned the Ink cleaning pads.(NOW I KNOW WHERE ALL THE COSTLY INK IS GOING!) Help!!! Frank


Re: Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by Frank (3/30/03 5:55 PM) reply+2 + / -
I DID IT! I couldn't get my Epson 740 to reset after I cleand the Ink Pads. I tryed Roberts method above but it didn't work.

1.Power on with "load/eject" and "cleaning button"
2.After "load/eject" light turns on press cleaning button.

I tried and tried and went out and bought a new printer. Then I tried one more time. The trick is you have to hold the 'CLEANING' button for about 5 or 6 seconds or untill the thing resets!! WA LA. Back goes the new printer and $248.95 goes back into my wallet. HA!!! Too bad 'BEST BUY'

Please help me reset something so I can get this paper jam error to stop. If I go through the cleaning process for the ink it prints the test pages just fine, but if I print a regular page it will not ... help!!!


Re: Re: Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by dickherts (5/4/06 3:00 AM) reply + / -
This works with my Stylus Color 640, too.
All lights flashing, on every power-up.

When paper load light shows, important hold down only
ink/clean button - don't give up, maybe 10 secs.

Thanks a million.

Re: Epson Color Stylus Error Codes by daveddd (2/4/08 12:36 PM) reply + / -
I had the same, I checked all cables as the error said
Check all connections and make sure all devices are on. If the power was turned off during printing, cancel the print job. If the error does not clear, see your printer documentation.
However, all I did was open the lid and pressed the green button to move head to left, then when it reset, I cleaned the printer head works ok.

All new cartridges - uninstalled/reinstalled software

Any help greatly appreciated...

Hi Scott,
I saw your reply on the fix your own website and was wondering if you could help me. I am having trouble with my beloved epson stylus color 600. Quite suddenly, all the lights starting flashing and I've done all the usual by checking for paper jams and replacing the ink - with no luck at all. You stated that you might have a fix for this problem. I would appreciate it if you could clue me in before this epson gets tossed out my window into the cold.

Thanks a bunch!
Dawn
