We’ve had issues with one of our printers lately, and we’re going to share with you how exactly we managed to fix our Epson ET-7750 not printing problem.
We know that there are a lot of guides out there. Unfortunately, we didn’t find one that helped us solve the issue.
We scoured the internet and our repair expertise and finally wrote up the last troubleshooting guide you’ll ever need with your Epson ET-7750.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get your printer fixed now!
To fix your Epson ET-7750 printer that’s refusing to print, you want to make sure that you have enough ink. Check the ink levels and replace the cartridges if they’re running low. You’ll also need to clean and align the print heads, so the ink flows continuously.
Now that you have a good idea of what’s wrong with your Epson printer, we can look at some of the causes of this problem.
Of course, your printer not doing what it’s supposed to do will be frustrating.
You want to make sure that you have enough ink in the tank and that the print nozzles are clean so you can start printing your documents.
1. Low Ink Levels
Your printer can’t get the ink flowing if it doesn’t have any. It’s not just about ink levels since it could have dried up and not pushed to the print nozzles.
You can check this using your printer utility, but a visual inspection is also needed.
2. Dirty Or Clogged Nozzles
Dust and dirt can easily get inside your printer and mess up the important moving parts.
If the nozzles are blocked, the ink won’t flow, and your printer will not be able to print anything.
3. Printer Is Not Level And Stable
Your printer needs to be in a level and stable position to start operating. It can simply refuse to print if it’s not in the optimum place.
4. Using Wrong Print Settings
Print settings impact how your printer does its job. Using the incorrect configuration can mess up your printer’s software.
These are the major culprits you will face if your Epson printer stops working.
We can now proceed to the complete troubleshooting guide so you can start getting those backlogged print jobs back in the queue.
If you’re attempting to fix your Epson ET-7750 printer, one of the first things you need to do is to reboot it.
Turn it off, then unplug it from the wall socket. You can now check if it starts to print once you turn it on.
In the case that a reboot doesn’t do the job, let’s proceed to the other solutions:
One requirement that your printer checks before even moving the print head are to see if it’s level and stable.
Of course, it will have difficulty moving the nozzles and all the ink tubes around if it’s sideways or tilted at an angle.
You don’t have to whip out a carpenter’s level to see if your printer is stable. But, you’ll need to check if something is underneath it, especially if you just moved it around.
Here’s how to check if your printer is stable and level:
- Make sure that your printer is on a flat surface.
- Remove items under it that can cause it to tilt.
- Ideally, you want to position your printer on top of a desk.
Note: Your printer can handle a slight tilt, but make sure that it’s not too much.
Now that you have determined that your printer is on solid and stable ground, the next component you want to look at is the ink levels.
The Epson ET-7750 is a printer that uses refillable tanks instead of cartridges.
You’ll be able to see the ink levels, but it helps to use your printer’s utility software.
Here’s how to check your printer’s ink levels:
- On your computer, look for the printer icon on your status bar.
- Double-click on it to open the printer utility tool.
- Check the ink levels on the tool.
- If it shows a low ink warning, consider refilling the tanks.
Tip: When filling up the tanks, make sure to follow the instructions carefully so as not to mess up the calibration of the ink level tool.
Since you have determined that your printer has enough ink, you want to make sure that the printer head nozzles are clear and not clogged.
If they’re blocked, the ink will not go through the nozzles and will simply not print anything.
Here’s how to check your printer’s nozzles:
- Load a few sheets of paper into the tray.
- Press the Home button of your printer.
- Use the arrow buttons to navigate to Settings.
- Go to Maintenance and press the OK button to confirm.
- Select Nozzle Check.
Note: Your printer will start to print a nozzle check pattern where you’ll know if it needs cleaning or not.
If your nozzle check comes out that your print heads need cleaning, you’ll need to do it.
You can command your printer to start the cleaning process on its menu, so you don’t need to open a different computer.
Here’s how to clean your printer’s print heads:
- Press the Home button on your printer.
- Navigate to Settings, then press the OK button.
- Select Maintenance.
- Choose Head Cleaning.
- Wait for the printer to complete the cleaning process.
Pro Tip: Feel free to do multiple cleaning cycles on your print head as the recommendation is to do it 2 to 3 times.
One instance where you can confuse your printer as not printing properly is when this setting is turned off.
Your printer can process these blank pages where you’ll think that there is a problem with your printer.
It will simply get a piece of paper from the tray and pass it into the printer without doing anything.
If this is something that you suspect, you’ll want to go to your printer’s utility tool on your computer.
Here’s how to change the Skip Blank Page setting:
- Open your computer’s settings.
- Select Device, then Printers & scanners.
- Choose your printer, then select Manage.
- Go to the Maintenance tab, then Extended Settings.
- Click on Skip Blank Page, then select OK.
Note: Now you’ll know if you’ve been dealing with blank pages or if there is something wrong with your printer.
Still Not Fixed?
If none of these steps resolve the issue, you can choose to reset your printer to factory defaults. This should clear all the settings allowing you to set it up from scratch.
Additionally, you can also contact Epson support for assistance.
Your printer might need repair or replacement, and they will be able to guide you if those are your possible options.
Now that you know the causes and fixes for your Epson ET-7750 not printing, you can return to your important documents and start printing them out.
You might have important files that need printing, so this is your cue to begin fixing your Epson ET-7750 printer.
