Epson EcoTank ET-2850 Does Not Connect To Wi-Fi

If you are unable to connect your Epson EcoTank ET-2850 printer to your Wi-Fi network, these solutions may help you resolve the issue.

  • If you used the Wi-Fi setup wizard to connect your Epson printer to your network, make sure you entered the correct SSID and password for your router. Check if the printer is located near the router. If they are far apart, bring them closer and check if that fixes the connection issue.
  • A printer driver is responsible for communication between the printer and the computer. Therefore, if you have problems with your printer driver, you should update it to the latest version to ensure overall performance. The latest printer driver can be downloaded from EPSON’s official website.
  • Whatever the problem is, a simple power cycle can fix it in most cases. To do this, turn off the printer and disconnect the printer from the power supply. Let the printer sit for 1 minute. Reconnect the power cord to the printer’s rear port and turn it on.

  • It is important to set the printer as the default printer. Otherwise, the Epson EcoTank ET-2850 printer will not receive print jobs from your computer.

Epson EcoTank ET-2850 Paper Does Not Feed

  • If the printer does not pick up the paper, see if there is enough paper in the input tray. The printer will not pick up a paper if you load paper beyond the specified limit.
  • On the other hand, if you put one or two sheets in the paper tray, your printer will not feed the sheets.
  • It is important to adjust the paper guides to the paper you are loading. Over-tightening the paper guides will make it difficult for the printer to feed the paper. Therefore, always be careful not to overtighten the paper guides. At the same time, the guides should neither be too loose; this will also lead to paper feed issues.
  • Check that the loaded paper matches the paper settings. If you find any discrepancies between them, fix them and see if the problem is resolved.
  • Moreover, make sure to load only the fanned and aligned sheets. In case you load curled or damp sheets into the paper tray, your printer may not feed the sheets.
