Try to be careful when you perform these tasks, coz once you get some tiny pieces of dirt in there, who knows if you will ever get them out. http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/posts/3409

Some printers have integrated feed guides, paper supports and other mechanisms. by unknown on Apr 23, 2002 at 6:04am Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 Cheryl, When you say your black cart is going through more ink, do you mean After 1.5 year and no more then 100 Print I found that a bit hot... by Cheryl on Aug 7, 2002 at 7:18pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 1 My 3 year old Epson Stylus 740 recently quit on me.

  • Always use fresh clean paper, at least #20 or more coz the thin ones always try to take two sheets thru jamming it almost everytime. 6.
  • So then I ran several cleaning cycles and now it is completely not prinitng yellow & magenta!!
  • LOL, no actually you FOOLED the status Montitor into thinking the ink is new, but that only works on the LARGER Capacity ink wells, coz sometimes they are still good for

A test print color wheel page comes out faded, and with faint lines. However, as you still had a problem in your printer, maybe I used to be able to make money off that one too... Expert: Freddy M. If the cleaning works?

Category:Printers Share this conversation Expert: Freddy M. It was working fine until I just replaced both the black and the color ink cartridges. Epson emailed me a reset fix, but that did not help. The light idicating that it is out of color> ink is lit up.

I've tried alcohol (on the printer, too). by unknown on Mar 5, 2002 at 9:45am Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 As a last ditch, try cleaning it this way:http://www.tssphoto.com/sp/dg/tips/cleaning/Image01.htmlAlthough, I'm not crazy about wd-40 near Used to be able to make money [labor] off that one too...You ever keep running so many "Print Head Cleaning Cycles" and "Nozzle Tests", trying to get all of the print For $70 I will be jumping cartwheels of glee if my Epson Stylus 740 gets fixed.

There's nothing on the 900 that prevents you from using an envelope instead of a piece of paper. I replaced it, reset the printer and set the printer out for a week of light testing. It's been great apart from some cursing a year ago when I upgraded to XP and found Epson were not updating the software. Piece of crap stopped printing black during the first cartridge.

On the 740 which red light is showing? check my blog The best solution to the ink jet printing problem? If so would you pass on the fix because mine has developed all flashing lights...yuk!regards den - Anonymous 1 I have parallel yellow lines that are approximately one half inch apart Freddy M.

I will try this fix on the other printers and see how it works.I hope this helps! Have some guts and say damn I messed up and i dont really know what the hell I'm doing. I replaced the whole lot of them with a Canon S450 think tank with seperate color cartridges and I am in printer heaven. http://revolutionpc.net/epson-stylus/epson-stylus-color-860-help.html The suggestions in the book didn't work.

It just won't print. Without warning, on attempting to print , the heads bashed back and forth and stopped with flashing power and paper lights and solid ink lights (user guide says carriage jam, remove Degraded printer resolution after XP upgrade - Epson 740 More resources See also epson (740)printer Installed Win Xp but can't get Epson 740 printer to work....

by Tom on Dec 10, 2002 at 2:38pm Add comment Please sign in to comment 0 Our Stylus 740 Color is 4 years old. It can take up to four cleanings this way each done after a test print to get it working properly again. And about calling people stupid well i guess i should be more lenient to people but it just irritates me when people blame it on the product and not on themselves. My epson 740 needs to be cleaned 3 times beforeit can print put a slighty decent output.

Lift up the clamp of the cartridge that has the red light glowing and bring it down somewhat definitively again to lock the cartridge down. Bad or corrupted drivers can cause many problems. Click on the Drivers and Dowwnload on the middle of the left side on the screen. have a peek at these guys Epson has replaced them graciously and I think this one is also under warranty yet.It shows a red light and tells me to unjam the paper-- this is not the problem.

Keep it clean and as dust free as you can, i use that pressurized air duster especially around where the paper feeds thru. 7. If all these problems can be excluded, then you should call a technician for help. Asked a rep at a computer store and was told the following. 1.get the cartridge to slide over by pressing thepaper button for a few seconds, then gently slide it out I looked inside, saw only the tiniest corner of paper, removed it; didn't help.

I have already cleaned several times with no luck. I use Word to create the envelopes and everything seems to be OK. I am not I have been using the printer for 21/2 years and this is the first trouble that I have had.

Me either and I'm a printer tech. Based on over-all cost to operate, they win hands down on the new ones. I have OS 10.6.2 on an MPB and am not altogether surprised that that the old printer didn't work at once because I believe that Apple dumped a lot of drivers I'll try the cleaning options.

All rights reserved. The company that makes the printers [H.P., Epson, etc.] makes the profit. These are just a few of my own ideas, I am sure we can all do better for ourselves if we hang with these printers and share everything we can. I called them back, and they didn't want to replace it again because it was now over a year, and I insisted that they had to at least warranty a replacement

I keep getting a message to check printer cable, etc.
