$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

Epson - Printer dead for good after 4 years

My Epson Artisan 700 printer is just 4 years old, but apparently Epson has figured this to be long enough for their planned obsolescence to kick in. I received an error message from my printer saying: your ink pads are nearing the end of their service life. I tried contacting customer (HAHA!) service, and was told you are out of luck. Take your printer to one of our "service locations", each about an hours drive away (and I live in a major city, btw) want to ship instead? Well, those printers are heavy...how much do you think that will run you? Anyway, my choices are: drive/mail my prointer in to be repaired..prob looking at AT LEAST 100.00, OR buy a new printer. GUESS WHICH COMPANY WILL NEVER SEE MY BUSINESS AGAIN??? EPSON...YOU SUCK!!!!!

No different than every other electronic company out there. They are not meant to last forever, and if all you paid is $100, then you bought a disposable printer.

Epson printers suck!

I purchased an epson printer over a month ago and it has never worked correctly. I have to turn it on and then turn it off to get it to work. And it won't print properly even with new catridges! It is suppose to work wirelessly and doesn't, I have to waste page after page of paper in the hopes that it figures out it's issue and prints a full page. This printer is brand new and I'm going to have to spend money on a new printer again! I should have stuck with my old HP.

Yes, I did have a warranty and I've twice emailed Epson my rebate receipt and have never heard back. It's not bad enough that they sold me a faulty printer but they aren't even honoring their rebate.

Give your printer to me, i'll call them and use the warranty to get one that works for free.

If u have a new mercedes that doesnt start one morning, I will take that too, you can yell and go buy a bmw. Wow keep buying new stuff at least it helps the economy.

Are you really buying stuff with no warranty?

Epson printers SUCK!!

I have the Workforce 40 which I bought because it is wireless. Well, I bought a new router and now the printer doesn't work after following all the *** instructions on the Epson website. Their help on their site is absolutely worthless. Of course they don't have an 800 number and the number listed only works during certain hours Monday - Friday. I emailed their technical support. Well, they did get back to me, but what they sent me was literally copied and pasted from one of the first levels of help from their website. So, they're lazy, they rip you off, and their products suck. I can't wait for them to go out of business. I URGE EVERYONE TO NOT BUY EPSON PRODUCTS.

The reason there is no 800 number is people use that for the user guide!

Doesnt work because you dropped your laptop? Too lazy to find the power button? Cant remember your home address? No prob just call 800 tech support and yell. How about live alone and just lonely?

Thats why companies stopped the free calls. Besides most phone plans are unlimited minutes.

Ive done computer phone support. Getting the guy to stop screaming at me everytime he cant remember his own password just made my day.

Epson specializes in customer "no service"

Long story. I have multiple Epson printers in my small business. Their customer no service department wasted weeks of my time -- sending me a printer cartridge to see if there was "really a problem". When I asked to speak to a supervisor, I was first of all told they didn't want to speak to me. I was put thru only after I told them I was going to post this complaint. However, her mantra was the same. It was all about the company's policy; nothing about the customer's needs. As I told her, it must be nice to be big enough that your customers are unimportant.
