Epson Stylus Pro 9800


Recommended Posts

Even when number of Prints is set to One, we keep getting print after print till we switch off the printer. How do I solve please?

Also when I switch on the Printer, I keep getting 'service call error' message. Please help as I have tried everything in the troubleshooting manual.

When you say "print after print", is that multiple prints of the same exact print job ?

Is your print queue empty when you perform your first print ?

Possibly the printer driver got messed up, or something wrong with the printer.  

Try deleting all print jobs in your print queue for the 9800, then un-installing and re-installing the printer drivers.

Have you checked the Epson support forums ?

Don't know what else to suggest.

please try to install this printer on another PC and see does it make any difference.?

regarding service call numbers need more ref. because it must show some numbers which is important ( related with error).  service call indicate that something inside the printer has getting damage. also there is  some parts inside the printer need to replace periodically. that also will come as service call error.
