Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Printer Review & Troubleshoot:

The Epson Stylus Photo RX500 is a mid-range inkjet printer all in one, that aims at the small to mid-sized offices with moderate print and scan requirements and heavy photo print requirements. Epson has tried to give some special accessories for it to serve its photo printing functions better.

The printer her comes with a maximum resolution of 5760 x 1440 dpi for both monochrome and colour prints. The printing speed in monochrome is 17 ppm but the print speed for colour printouts is 0.5 ppm which is shockingly slow for a printer of this price range. There are 6 Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Ink Cartridges with the usual CMYK inks and the extra light cyan and light magenta, for better photo reproduction. While the photo prints come out really good, the text and graphic prints are not of similar quality. The scanner in this unit has a maximum resolution of 2400 x 4800 dpi, with a copying speed of 10 ppm for black and 8 ppm for colour printouts. The scanning results are of a good quality.

This all in one comes with a USB connection and a support for most kinds of flash memory cards and more. Due to the focus on photo printing, it even has a holder to hold the 35 mm film and negatives when they are being scanned. The input tray has 150 sheet capacity. The software that come with the printer is very useful, especially the image fixing software that takes faded prints and negatives and restores colour into the faded photographs. The Epson Stylus Photo RX500 Ink Cartridges can be replaced separately saving costs and ink.

Given the functions and build quality, it is a compact unit which can be setup on a computer desk rather than be needing a standalone desk of its own.

Advantages:
  • Made for image printing, with special attachments to further improve it
  • Reasonable pricing given its variety of features
  • Good photo quality
  • Very good scanning results
Disadvantages:
  • Very slow speeds
  • Text prints are not as good as the photo
Conclusion

Epson Stylus Photo RX500 is an all in one that focusses on photo printing, it serves it purpose well, but disappoints on the other functions like text and graphic printing. Overall it is a good value for money unit, best for people with a heavy duty printing and scanning requirements with special focus on photo printing.

How to remove and reinstall the new cartridges in the Epson printer?

Before you begin the installation process, make sure you have the new Epson Stylus Photo RX500 ink cartridges handy. Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session. To install the new cartridges, follow the steps as described below.

Step 1: Make sure that the Stylus Photo RX500 is turned on and is not printing.

Step 2: If an ink cartridge is empty, check the LCD screen to identify which cartridge is empty. After this, press the colour button. Now, if an ink cartridge is low in ink then press the setup button to enter the setup mode. Press the top left button next to the LCD screen until replace ink is displayed. Finally, press the colour button.

Step 3: Open the scanner on the LCD screen, when the message is displayed. Use the side grips to open the scanner unit. Be sure to keep the scanner lid closed.

Step 4: Wait for the Epson Stylus Photo RX500 ink cartridge holder to move to the replacement position. After that, open its cover by pulling the back of the cover-up and towards you.
Caution: Never attempt to open the cartridge holder cover while the print head is moving. Wait until the cartridges have completely moved to the replacement position.

Step 5: Identify the Epson Stylus Photo RX500 ink cartridge that you need to replace. Press in the tab at the back of the cartridge to release it, then lift the cartridge straight out. Its disposal should be done carefully.

Step 6: Finally, unwrap the new cartridge.

Step 7: Lower the new cartridge into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
Note: If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat the steps 5 to 7 before continuing with step 8.

Step 8: Close the cartridge cover.

Step 9: Carefully lower the scanner unit and press it down until it clicks into place. The printer begins charging the ink delivery system, and it appears on the LCD screen. Wait for the message to disappear before using the printer.
Caution: Never turn off the printer while charging appears on the LCD screen unless it hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes. This may cause incomplete charging of the ink.

Most Common FAQs for Epson Stylus Photo RX500:

Q. When I try to do colour printing my Epson Stylus Photo RX500 prints out only in black? Why is this happening? Does it mean the coloured Epson Stylus Photo RX500 ink cartridges have run out?
A. If your machine is printing just in black then it means the settings in the printer driver may have been put to use black ink only.

For a Windows OS, please click on Customising Windows Print Settings and ensure the ‘black ink only’ option is not selected.

For Macintosh OS, go to Customising Print Settings and ensure that the ‘colour’ option is not set as ‘black’.

The problem has nothing to do with the ink cartridges. The LCD screen displays ‘ink low’ message with the error light flashing if one of the ink cartridges have low ink. Hope this clarifies your question.

Q. Why am I unable to connect my Epson Stylus Photo RX500 to wireless network? How can I do it? Please help
