Epson printer using lots of ink

Q: Epson printer using lots of ink

Couldn't find a good spot for this so I'll ask here...

I have an Epson XP800 inkjet that I bought a few years ago and barely use, maybe 20 pages a year. But that doesn't stop the ink from going away. It's so annoying.

Is this normal? Should I move to laser for low volume printing without the cost of cartridges every 6 months?

A:Epson printer using lots of ink

Your experience is one of the reasons I won't have an Epson product anymore, other than for target practice (a scanner that had to be frequently retimed and had lousy software is the other reason). However, any inkjet that doesn't get used frequently is prone to clogged heads due to the ink drying out in them. The printers clear the heads by pumping large amount s of ink through them to blast out the dried ink. Sadly, frequent head clogging, and the subsequent high consumption of ink, is normal for inkjets not used frequently.

Laser printers, on the other hand, do not have that problem. Normally, they can set for weeks or more at a time without being used, then will print something without even a quiet belch. Even though the up front cost is higher aand toner cartridges aren't exactly cheap, the per copy cost is usually much, much less than for inkjets. Also, laser printer printouts will not run if they get wet, unlike most inkjet printouts.

Once you decide to get a laser printer (assuming you do), the next question is whether to get a color laser or B&W. One advantage inkjets do have over laser printers is they will print much better looking photos, when printed on photo paper, than laser printers although the more recent laser color prints do surprisingly well. If you have no real need for color printouts and or rarely make photo prints, it would be more cost effective to just get a B&W laser printer and farm out any photos you need printing to photo labs, such ...

Since I was last on the forum I had problems with the computer continually blinking all the time, as if programme was running in background continually. I had installed Secunia PIS and believed that it may have caused the problem. I then had problem uninstalling Secuni and found that I was able to sort it out using “REGEDIT” in the Software section “user_software” and “machine_software”, click and deleted the programme.

The continual “blinking” saga is still there. But, at the same time I am having problems with printing any documents with the Epson C90, which would take at least three minutes to complete the spooling and printing function. I didn’t have this problem before. I spoke to Epson support and sadly they were no help, except to advise me to uninstall and reinstall the programme.

I thought that possibly my WORD programme could be part of the problem, which is WORD 2000 SR-1 that is fully updated to SR-3. I then uninstalled WORD and reinstalled WORD as per Microsoft Download site for software, and printing problem was still the same.

I also have an Epson TX110, I decided to install the TX110 and use it as the “default printer”, but the same printing problem existed.

A:Epson components of Epson Printer Software Will not REMOVE

I have taken further steps from many answers found on the Google search engine.

(1) I ran Microsoft fix-it on uninstalling problems,and I fixed one EPSON item that wasn't neither of the components that are still listed on ADD/REMOVE.

(2) I went REGEDIT Hkey-Local-Machine-Software-microsoft windonw- current version-uninstall and scrolled down to those EPSON components, and hit the DELETE button.

(3) I then went to C Drive-Programme Files and clicked on three EPSON files that were still listed and deleted them.

I assumed after all of that it would remove all in total, but those entries are still listed on the ADD/REMOVE population. Any idea how to delete these, or even if they are there and it appears that all EPSON components have been DELETED, would it be okay to download the TX110 printer again?

One of my colleagues was trying to print but one of the cassettes has disappeared (lower cassette 2).

When I went into the properties the pooter told me that it was searching for the EBAPI module.

When I looked at the name it had changed to 192.168.4.168(AL-C1000).

After I changed color and black cartridges, my Epson color stylus 600 printed blank pages. Here, I will admit that I forgot to take the tape off the bottom of the cartridges until my husband reminded me. So that might be the cause of the problem. We both went throught the trouble shooting process on the computer. That resulted in titles, but nothing else, printed in blue. I was advised to press the cleaning button several times which resulted in vague blurred printing.
FYI: Although I identified myself as experienced because I have used a computer for years, when I registered & was asked for the configuration of my computer I was lost. That kind of stuff completely throws me.

Sounds like the cartridges aren't installed correctly , the pins/contacts are dirty, or the cartridges are faulty.

First thing is to remove the cartridges, check the contacts on the back of the cartridges and the corresponding ones in the printer for damage or ink, and then reinstall them. If you have your old cartridges then try reinstalling them and see if one of the new ones is faulty, in which case try returning it.

Dear T G
I recently bought an Epson Stylus 895 and I am having problems.
Trying to get through to Epson Tech support here in the UK is a non starter and 5 E-Mails to them over a period of ten days have not had a single acknowledgement.
I installed the printer, did a test page”= Congrats. your printer has been successfully installed” but it has not worked properly since.
It does not like printing more than one page, it stops half way through the second page(even second test page) then “Communications error", if I cancel printing, everything comes to a halt and the only way I can delete the print job is to Restart, but when I do that, on reboot scandisk runs saying Windows improperly closed.
Has anyone, who has had any experience of this printer, any suggestions.?
I uninstalled the printer and did a clean re-install several times but the problem remains.

I haven't used the printer for about a week and when I switched on the printer went through it's normal cycle but then the 2 red lights flashed and the printer wont go any further. I've tried everything I can including holding down different combinations of the 3 buttons but I still get the same result!
I then got out my spare Epson R200 and I can't even get it to switch on, the carriage seems to be locked as it will not move at all manually, it's just my luck that both printers decide to go awol together. Another problem is that I live in Tenerife so there isn't any service people I can turn to.

Hello Tech Support People! I own an Epson Stylus C64 Printer and have questions concerning an inkjet refill kit. The printer has 4 cartridges and I filled them appropriately, refilling black, magenta, cyan and yellow. (A few months ago I had a Lexmark and I had no problems with the refill kit and it printed beautifully) I was instructed to clean the cartridge heads 3 times before use, but it won't let me. The ink level message restates what it said before the refill, that the cartridges are empty. A new message says buy it online... blah, blah, blah.... so this is far as I can get with my attempt. Since the machine thinks it has no ink, it won't let me print. I figure this is an attempt by Epson to force an owner to buy their products at the much higher rate , but the kit says it will work on ANY and ALL PRINTERS. Would appreciate any input and information from you guys! THANKS NAN

That tends to be the lifecycle of a printer. Components wear out and malfunction. At this point spray some pc cleaning solution in there and see if you can get a few more miles out of it.

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?

A: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.

Only thing I can think of is enter your bios setup and make sure the printer port is set to bidirectional, ecp, or epp and try it. It maybe a communication problem being that the printer needs two way comm and isn't getting it.

Hi,

I have had an Epson SX515W printer for over a year and it has been set up and working fine wirelessly for all that time.

Recently it has only worked wirelessly sometimes and now I can't seem to find it wirelessly at all.

It had been working fine via several pc's, mac and Ipad's.

I have retyped the network password into the printer and the light is on saying the printer is connected wirelessly.

Anyone else had this problem if so any advice?

Many thanks

I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1280 using with a Mac PowerBook G4 (OS 10.4.9).

There have been no problems with printing until just a few days ago. The black ink disappeared, then the color inks disappeared. Although ink levels were fine, I replaced both b&w and color inks just to be sure. Cleaned the heads many times. The most I get in print-outs are very short, light streaks of color like blue or red.

I called Epson technical support. They suggested that I 1) plug and unplug the printer, 2) take out and replace the ink cartridges, 3) clean the printer heads again, and then 4) the problem should be over.

No. Still no ink printing on paper.

Anyone have any suggestions?

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

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 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.

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

I have an Epson C84 printer that uses durabrite ink, which I need for the type of stuff I print. It is 13 months old and uses 4 different color cartridges. I bought this because of the durabrite feature and the separate colors.

It has quit printing the black and cyan. I have replaced both cartridges, even though the old ones weren't empty. I have gone through every help thing I could find, spent hours emailing back and forth with Epson. They are no help. I am so disgusted I don't really want to buy another Epson, but I have these cartridges sitting here that are going to waste.

Hi Nancy,

I had a C84 with the same problem - I ended up dumping it

With inactivity the printheads get blocked (as you know to your cost). I tried all options and nothing worked.

I tried the usual head clean until I ran out of ink!

I put damp tissue under the heads and left it over night.

I even took it to Cartridge World (clone cartridge suppliers) and they kept it overnight and tried "soaking" it - whatever that entailed.

There is a link to some suggestions here: http://www.maxpatchink.com/epson-tips.shtml

I will post again if I come up with anything more constructive.

I have an Epson Color Stylus 600 that leaves a blank line thru the print. I've used the clean button many times but the problem remains. I would like to clean the print head myself using some alcohol but I don't know how to get at the print head. I replaced the ink cartridge without any change in the results.
 

A:Epson Printer Head

Hi there -

The printheads are located directly under the ink tank on the 600. If you can, remove the printhead (remember how it went in!) and soak it in Windex for about an hour - plunge it several times first. Then rinse with hot water - a lot of ink should come out. Sounds like a messy ordeal, but it is supposed to work. Ya might want to keep some soap and water close by just in case. The print quality should improve with each print job after you finish.

Good luck!

My Epson C84 goes through ink like there's no tomorrow.

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.

I'm trying to install an Epson inkjet printer to my laptop via a USB cable - but when I plugged it into the laptop, it didn't detect the new hardware. I installed the drivers anyway and tried printing but I got an error message telling me to check the connection.

I know the USB port is OK (I use it for my cable modem) and I also know the printer's OK (I use it - and the same USB lead - for my PC). What could be the problem?
 

A:problems with Epson printer

Hi, If your printer has a green on button, do you see this when trying to install the printer? Does it have the ink cartridges in, paper loaded, etc? USB installs can be tricky- you should follow the step by step instructions for your model printer.

What is the model of your Epson- it will help!
So, if you are sure the printer is "ON" and you have ink, paper, etc.....I will leave you as is. Only other suggestion- even though the port works with other devices, is it set in BIOS to "ECP" (there are other settings, mine shows "EPP/ECP" as well)
If you need directions to check this setting in BIOS, just post back.

This question relates to the Epson Stylus C82 Ink Jet printer. I've had it for a couple of years, always worked fine. Last week, since the black ink had run out, I replaced it. It went through the whole ink charging routine, and the ink monitor says the black ink is now full.

So far so good.

But when I went to print something, the page comes out blank. I've double checked all the settings to make sure there isn't some odd option selected somewhere.

This is the first problem I've had. So, anyone got any suggestions as to how I might get it working again? I know these printers are temperamental little buggers. I may as well try poking it or any suggestions since it would probably cost me more to bring it somewhere to be fixed than to buy a new one.

Anyone out there know something? Thanks.
 

A:Epson WorkForce 610 printer

Most inkjet printers have an upper media thickness or weight (gsm) limit, Avery 3265 may exceed that limit thought I've been unable to determine it's weight per sheet from the info I've seen. Or it could be the textured surface the printhead can't cope with.

As for Epson telling you to use only Epson media, well they would say that of course, but it's a daft response from them. Thousands of photo printing enthusiasts are using specialised third-party consumables (paper and ink) in their Epson printers every day. Whatever the cause of your problem, it's not because the paper or card is not made by Epson.

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.

Hi- I've checked the LPT1 port, & have run all the troubleshooting diagnostics. The printer will not print even though it has all new ink cartridges properly installed. All ideas are welcome, please! The printer was working fine, before replacing the ink cartridge. It refuses to print a test page.

Thanks
 

A:Epson Stylus C82- printer help?!

I just recently found out from Epson that even if your only printing with black ink, the color cartridge is still being used to "build" each character that's printed. So if you just replaced the black ink cartridge, thinking the color cartridge is full.. replace that one also. The printer will not work if the color cartridge is empty... or the printer thinks it's empty. If you did replace both cartridges, then obviously one of them is bad... the printer still sees one of them, or both, as empty.

hi all,
Is there a way to make an epson c84 printer auto on/off ?. Epson tech support says that none of their printers have the feature.

Printer in question is an Epson Stylus C84. When I try to print a document by clicking File-Print, The first Printer dialog box comes up OK. However, when I click on the Properties button the right edge is cut off and I cannot see or access the "Advanced" button to change settings. I have tried changing monitor resolutions and pixel display with no effect. I have uninstalled the printer and reinstalled from the setup disk. The box gets larger, but the content is still cut off on the right edge. I have ran anti-virus, anti-malware and spyware programs, again no effect. I have contacted Epson customer service and their suggestion was to change resolution although I had told them I had tried that already. It must be something in the Epson program because I have a Canon Selphy D5700 and a fax printer installed and both of those dialog boxes are OK.

I power it up and the pc connects to it, when I try and print I get an ink empty message and on the printer screen i get " printer error see documentation" i read the docs, do a power cycle and it tells me to call epson, which I don't want to do.
Any ideas, I am using non epson cartridges and have been for some time.

A: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...
