Epson EcoTank ET-2800 Not Printing

If your Epson EcoTank ET-2800 printer is not printing, the problem might be with the connection, settings, or the printer itself. However, these troubleshooting solutions can help you solve the trouble efficiently.

  • First, check if your printer shows any error codes. If so, rectify the problem with the appropriate solutions. If there is a paper jam, your printer will not print anything; in that case, removing the jammed paper can solve the trouble.
  • In many cases, restarting the print spooler service can solve the trouble in the best way possible. To do this, open the Run box (Windows + R). Type Services.msc and click OK. When directed to the Services window, right-click the Print Spooler option and select Stop. After a few seconds, right-click the same option and choose Restart.
  • Make sure the cartridges are properly installed in the printer. Open the Epson printer cartridge access door and remove all the installed cartridges. Replace the cartridges into their respective holders and press each cartridge firmly into their holders.
  • Printer drivers can affect the overall performance of your printer. Therefore, it is important to keep them up to date. To update your printer driver to the latest version, visit Epson’s official support page. Enter your printer model and download the driver compatible with your operating system.
  • After installing the latest printer driver, check if the problem is resolved.
  • A simple power cycle can fix the problem. Turn off the Epson printer and unplug the power cord. After 1 minute, reconnect the cable and turn on the printer. Hopefully, this should work.

Epson EcoTank ET-2800 Paper Jam

  • Paper jams can occur anywhere in the printer. When the printer has a paper jam, the printer will not print anything. However, you can fix the problem by clearing the jammed paper from the exact area.
  • When the printer has a paper jam, the printer control panel shows the exact location. Clearing the jammed paper from that specific location can solve the problem.
  • After you remove all jammed paper from the printer, the printer will no longer display any error codes. Always load clean paper in the paper tray to reduce paper jams. Loading curled, or damp paper greatly increases the chances of a paper jam.
  • Also, be careful not to exceed the specified number of sheets. By taking these simple precautions, you can eliminate paper jams to some extent.
