Experience in the use and maintenance of Epson printers (I)

among domestic units, Epson is still the main printer in common use at present, and the use and maintenance of this series of printers is still an issue that we must pay attention to. The author hereby introduces some opinions on use and maintenance based on personal and friends' experience, hoping to be helpful to you

(I) Precautions for convenient plugging during use

1 Ensure that the environment is clean. There is too much dust in the use environment, which is easy to cause poor lubrication of the guide shaft of the word cart, so that the movement of the print head is blocked, resulting in inaccurate printing position or hitting the mechanical frame, resulting in panic. Sometimes, because the print head does not return to the initial position, when restarting, the printer will first return the print head to the initial position, and then clean the print head, resulting in unnecessary waste of ink

the way to solve this problem is to often wipe the dust off the guide shaft and lubricate the guide shaft (choose lubricating oil with good fluidity, such as sewing oil)

2. When the ink cartridge is not used up, it is best not to remove it, so as to avoid ink waste or mismeasurement of ink by the printer

3. Before turning off the machine, let the print head return to the initial position (when the printer is in the pause state, the print head will automatically return to the initial position). Some printers (such as styluskolor, stylusproxl, MJ - 1500k, etc.) automatically move the print head to the initial position before shutting down; Some printers (such as mj-800k, stylus-1000, stylus Ⅱ, etc.) must be confirmed to be in the pause state (that is, the "pause light" or "pause" light is on) before shutdown. To do this, first, avoid cleaning the print head again when the printer is turned on next time, which wastes ink; Second, because the print head can be sealed by the protective cover at the initial position, the nozzle is not easy to be blocked

4. Some printers are mechanically locked when in the initial position. At this time, if you move the print head by hand, it will not be able to leave the initial position. Be careful not to forcibly move the print head, otherwise the mechanical part of the printer will be damaged. For printers such as mj-1500k and styluskolor, the print head is locked when the initial position and the adjustment pointer is set. At this time, do not manually move the print head to replace the ink cartridge, so as to avoid causing failure

5. When changing the ink cartridge, be sure to follow the steps in the operation manual, and pay special attention to the above operations when the power is turned on. Because after replacing the ink cartridge, the printer will fill the ink delivery system with ink, and this process will not be carried out when it is turned off, so the printer cannot detect the reinstalled ink cartridge. In addition, some printers use the electronic counter inside the printer to count the ink volume (especially in the statistics of color ink usage). When the counter reaches a certain value, the printer judges that the ink is exhausted. In the process of cartridge replacement, the printer will reset its internal electronic counter to confirm that a new cartridge is installed

in particular, it is necessary to prevent taking down the old ink cartridge and replacing it with a new one when it is turned off. This operation is invalid for the printer

(II) Common methods for cleaning print heads and replacing ink cartridges

- 800K

cleaning black print heads: press the [switch] + [pause] key

replace the black ink cartridge: press the [switch] key for a few seconds until the print head moves to the cartridge replacement position, and then press the [switch] key after replacement

ylus - 1000

clean the black print head: press the [alt]+[pause] key

replace the black ink cartridge: press the [alt] key for 5 seconds, move the word cart to the ink cartridge replacement position, and press the [alt] key after replacing the new ink cartridge

ylu scolor

clean the black print head: press the [ALT] + [load/eject] key

when the equipment is initially put into operation, it is particularly necessary to protect the print head: press the [alt] + [economy/condensed] key

replace the ink cartridge: press the [alt] key for 3 seconds, the word cart moves to the ink cartridge replacement position, and press the [alt] key after replacing the ink cartridge

styluspro, styluspro XL operate the same as stylus color

ylus color II

clean the black print head: [alt]+[economy/condensed] key

clean the color print head: [alt]+[printmode] key

replace cartridge: same as stylus color

ylus color Ⅱ s

clean the black print head: [alt]+[pause] key

clean the color print head: [alt]+[pause] key

replace ink cartridge: press the [alt] key for about 5 seconds, move the print head to the ink cartridge replacement position, and press the [alt] key after replacement

ink prompt: the ink is about to run out - "error" light flashes

the ink is used up - "error" light flashes and "pause" light is on

- 1500k

clearing often requires setting the range to maximum or "auto" mode to wash the black print head: [switch] + [line feed/page feed] key

clean the color print head: [switch] + [font] key

replace ink cartridge: Black - directly replace; Color - same as stylus color

note:

1 Before cleaning the print head and replacing the ink cartridge, make sure that the "pause" light (or "pause" light) is on

2. During the ink filling process after cleaning the print head or replacing the ink cartridge, the "pause" light (or "pause" light) flashes all the time. At this time, you should wait patiently until the "pause" (or "pause") light no longer flashes, and you cannot shut down or restart the printer during this process

3. Only when the print quality declines, clean the print head to avoid wasting ink

4. In the case of low requirements on printing quality, in order to save ink, you can select "economy" or "condensed" on the panel to print, and the corresponding indicator light is on at this time (the stylus color Ⅱ s selects economy or condensed printing by pressing [alt] + [load/eject] alternately)
