Epson Stylus Photo RX620
epson stylus photo RX620 scanner error+weird noise
When i start up/turn on my Epson stylus photo RX620 printer after a few seconds when its starting up,it makes this really loud buzz/rip/neeugghhh noise :S and when it starts my little screen comes up with : Scanner error see documentation
I have no idea whats the problem with it,my ink levels are allfine, i've never had this problem before. my computer can no longer recognise it and i cant print ANYTHING!!!
If anyone else has this problem i advise you to check under your scan lid and you'll see a padlock symbol, switch the switch next to it up and down a few times leaving it in the unlocked position. Restart your printer and everything should be fine
:D even the noise went away
Thanks! I had the exact same problem and had no idea what to do. I did what you said and it worked right away. Thanks!!!!
Thanks! I had the exact same problem and had no idea what to do either. This FIXED IT immediately! I wish Epson had an easier way to support their printers! Your post is so important to help others. Kudos to you.
I had exactly the same problem on my printer today. When I did the search, this was the first item selected, and the fix WORKED!!
Adjusting the transportation lock works for my printer as well.
The transportation locking mechanism seems to be poorly made/installed on this model since it can block the path of the scanner head while sitting in the unlocked position. At least it was a cheap model.
Well, either i didnt do it right or my printer is stupid, Because it didnt work for mine.
YAY nik_vik!!! I've been having this problem for awhile now (although the printer still worked I wasn't able to scan anything) & your suggestion WORKED! AwEsOmE! THANKS for your input; I'm now back on track. :o Bren
Gads!! I am really frustrated. Tried suggested posted without any luck. Went to Epson website and troubleshot but without success. Even downloaded driver; cleaned printer, etc. No luck. This printer has worked perfectly and now does everything except scan and that is exactly what I need for my genealogy project. Any suggestions? Thanks!
Worked for me. Thanks nik_vik for posting the solution!
Wanted to say thanks. This helped me too!!
worked on my Epson 1600 also. But the lock switch is by the electrical hook-ups. g
nic vic - great post and fix thanks. also fixed my printer about 2 years ago when the ink overflow system was full, (Basically the sponge is saturated and there is no way to replace) instead of calling out epson for £200 fixed it with a small plastic bag and 2 tampons, has worked brilliantly ever since, well till the scan thing.
Hi Nik_Vik! Exactly the same problem -- Now Fixed!
Thanks a million. This is the first problem I have had since buying the RX620 in 2007. .... Chas (CzechScot)
Thank you!! Solved our problem.
Worked for me too - many, many thanks :)
Thanks that really helped, Just unlocked and it worked.
I'vebeen struggling with this for a week, solved just like that ...many thanks
Thank you for the quick fix
It worked!!!!!! Thank you!!!!
Thanks, I've had this problem for quite awhile now and doing this seems to have fixed my RX 650 scanner/printer.The load noise has now gone too,
Thanks to the genius who found this
Magic! I did not believe it would work.
