Epson - XP 410 will not print from internet or files

Just like a smart phone, this printer will do everything but make a phone call or print in this case. It may not even do all the other things on it's menu, but I will never find out. I want to print a page from the internet or a file and it will not do it. This is what I bought it for --- to be a PRINTER. All it wants to do is be my friend and let me know it is wi fi ready, although not really! What a waste of money. Although it is now in about 5oo pieces and I am feeling somewhat better about the tech *** being sold on the market lately, I will never buy another Epson product --- EVER.

Epson stylus C88+. What a Piece of ***!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I purchased an Epson stylus C88+ about one year ago; I have never been so disappointed with a product in my life! (1). the paper feeder does not pull the paper in straight, so you can never print true. (2). the ink jets are constantly clogging up (unbelievable). (3) It has a hard time managing colors correctly on any setting. So here it sits on my desk as a paper weight! I purchased an HP Office jet pro 8600 plus, excellent printer, absolutely no problems, love it! I owned an Epson stylus 860; it was the best printer I ever used, until it broke after 8 years. So in conclusion, Epson printers are not what they used to be, poor quality, and just out for profits, and living off their past reputation! DON’T ever buy any Epson product!!!!!!!

*** epson ..doesnt print black only when one of the other color cartridge is empty

it's so annoying...I just bought a black cartridge but the printer not allowing me to print even black only as one of the other three cartridges is empty. I have on nx430 stylus. Had I known this issue before, I would have never bought this printer. Epson should familiarize buyers beforehand of this shortcoming before selling their printers. I feel like I have just wasted $23 for buying the black cartridge and not to mention the cost of this dumb Epson Printer itself. No more buying of any products from Epson. I don't trust this company any longer.

Epson - Ink cartridges cannot be recognised

Just bought a new set of ink cartridges because the last set 'were unable to be recognised'. Replaced the old with the new (even though the old hadn't been used before either) and the same messaged is displayed when trying to print a page. Thats $ 120 or so on ink cartridges without a page being printed. I purchased the Epson printer 1 year ago when i needed a printer every morning everyday for a month and now the that time has come again. Last time i was able to have a friend print off my papers for me to troubleshoot. It would be nice to have a printer that does its job as a toaster toasts bread.

Epson - Defective machines

Epson XP 810 is a disaster. I have had 2 replacement machines after the first worked for only 4 months. The second replacement could never be connected to a computer the third has failed after 2 days after being connected and unlike the first is using or showing ink being used at an impossible pace - 10 pages for a black cartridge and now half used color cartridges although there has been almost no color printing - only on margins of a small number of pages. Have also had false messages - e.g. that the paper size is incorrect in the midst of printing an article although the paper is the same as has been printed. The service people for the most part have been responsive although it takes a long time 1.5 and now 1 hour to resolve the problem as to why it is not printing though connected to a computer although the Epson tag says it is not connected.

My all in one (WiFi, scanner, copier, fax, printer) Epson Artisan 800 stopped working, because it stated that the printer's parts (waste ink pads) reached the end of their "service life". Upon researching I found a reset utility (provided by Epson) that allowed me to...

$400 piece of junk made by Epson

I bought Aristan 1430 hoping to print some large format pictures. After 14 months and printing less than 200 pages waste ink has to be replaced (so said printer) and does not allow me to print anything. Old models had reset utility, but not this one, and the customer service is a *** joke. I refuse to paid for the repair plus the shipping cost to fix what was free before. They got greedy on inks, service and product providing cheap junk to loyal consumers. I hope they will go out of business soon. I was a big fan of Epson for years but from now on EPSON ID DEAD TO ME.

Epson ink cartridge scam

Will never buy an Epson printer ever again. When one of the many ink cartridges are out the printer is in effect "dead" and will not let you print unless you replace the cartridge. Even if you have a full black cartridge. I wish I would have known this when buying the printer as I would have bought a different brand. I will let everyone I know about this and suggest they buy other printer brands instead. To top it all off there is no customer relations email address (that I saw) to let Epson know that you are pissed. Not a happy customer!

Epson - Warranty does not inform property and printed is junk

Epson all in one XP-600 - Purchased May, 2013 - First of all, it drinks ink like it is free. Although the quality of the printing was never great, within five months it was printing worse. After cleaning the head and doing the nozzle check several times, the printer was printing only in red. I contacted online support, told them what the problem was and what I had done. They told me to clean the head and do a nozzle check again. So I did that. Didn't work. By now, I am almost out of black ink in a brand new Epson cartridge although I had not printed hardly anything. They then told me I could get a replacement. So I called and went through that process. Then I learned that in order for them to send me a replacement, I had to have a "hold" put on my credit card for the cost of the printer which they would then *** once I returned the defective unit in SEVEN days of receiving the new one. Now, under the provisions of the warranty, it states that "Epson requires a debit or credit card number to secure the cost of the replacement printer in the event that you fail to return the defective one" within "FIVE working days." It does not say that a charge will be made immediately and then removed. I have to trust them to provide a brand new replacement within 2 to 7 days and remove the charge when I return the old one, but there is no trust on the part of the company that sold this piece of junk.

Epson - 30 day warranty nonsense

Bought a WF7510..let it sit in box while out of state and finally got around to using it after 50+ days. Didnt work well at all and after a week stopped all together. Technical support agreed to send a replacement. Sent a refurbished unit vs my brand new unit. Called for a RTA number and got the 30 day warranty nonsense. This smells like fraud using an arbitary 30 days from shipping or purchase to justify selling *** equipment and then not backing it up with similar new goods. I have purchased Epson products for 30 years but never again. Was looking at the R3000 and above. Will look elsewhere. Disappointment and inflexible sales people.

Epson - Highly dissatisfactory customer service and poor quality product

I bought a printer from epson, L100 model, from very beginning it demanded servicing every alternate month and the very next day of its warranty getting over, they blocked its printing skiing for servicing costing 500rs. I was agreeable to that also, but the customer servicing is so poor, u have to keep calling them, requesting them to send a support staff however, no one turns up, despite promising several days, the support staff is sooo rude and unmannered, they disconnect phons on the face, give no reference no. of complaint and are not at all supportive of helping the clients problem. Worst printers to buy in terms of after purchase servicing.

Epson - Must have color ink in carts in order to print in black-only.

From our email to Epson: We bought printer a few months ago. First cartridge did not last long, but we figured it was just a starter. Second one, #124 lasted about 2 weeks with well under the 200-300 black pages we should have gotten. We bought another which then would not work at all.After spending a long time on the phone, we were told that it will not work if one or more COLOR carts are low. This is NOT what is stated online or on the instructions with the printer. It states that even if a color cart is "expended" that you can print black by selecting Plain Paper and Black Ink/Grayscale. On the phone a supervisor told me that is not the case. She is sending some color carts, but now we always have to be mindful of the color levels and be forced to buy color that we would not otherwise need. We have owned several printers and NEVER had one that would not print black when the color was low or out. This is a poor feature that you make even worse by your erroneous instructions. [It's been 2 weeks and have not received the color carts]

Just got off the phone with Epson customer service / technical service. Epson agent agrees that every single one of their printers will stop printing when one of the color cartridges is empty, which could be a color cartridge when only black-and-white is being printed.

While printing black-and-white, the printer will empty all the color cartridges while performing a cleaning cycle every 4 pages, then stop the printing of B&W because a color cartridge was emptied during the cleaning cycle. Why must anyone pay for three sets of color cartridges to replace those purged during a cleaning cycle in the printing of a 700-page B&W document?

EPSON GOREGAON SERVICE CENTRE BAD

I PURCHASED FROM BIG BAZAR A EPSON ALL IN ONE PRINTER IN MAR 2102 WHICH STARTED GIVING THE TROUBLES FROM BEGINNING. IN 6 MONTHS TIME, BLANK PAGES STARTED TO PRINT SO REPLACED THE CARTRIDGES. SAME PROBLEM REPEATED IN 2 MONTHS, CALLED THE SERVICE AGENT WHO TOOK THE PRINTER, ORIGINAL BILL & WARRANTY CARD. SINCE 12TH DEC 2012, EPSON SERVICE CENTRE IN GOREGAON MUMBAI (ALKA) HAS JUST BEEN PROLONGING THE REPAIR. HEAD OF THE PRINTER NEEDS REPLACEMENT. SOMETIMES THE EXCUSE IS THAT THE BILL IS MISPLACED, OTHER TIMES THE WARRANTY SEEMS TO BE OVER ETC. ETC. IT IS A VERY BAD AFTER SALES SERVICE. A BIG NO TO EPSON PRINTERS
