EPSON 4900 PROBLEMS

TED, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: I purchased the original 4900 approx 3 yrs ago and was extremely happy with prints and everything.Then troubles developed with plugged colors and cleaning head using excessive ink. Tried all of the ideas on internet to unplug and clean. the result was that I ruined the printer. Repair impractical.

an expensive boondoggle

  • Excerpt: I thought my first Epson stylus pro 4900 was an isolated "lemon," when Epson offered to replace it. The problems began soon after I bought it. They sent me a new one, I had to pack up the old one, but when I unpacked the replacement they sent, it turned out to be a used, reconditioned machine!

Horrible investment

  • Excerpt: I have owned two of these and had to send to the recycle bin shortly after the warranty expired. Epson replaced with two refurbished printers and they had the same clogging issues.

Great printer that needs a lot of care

  • Excerpt: I use the 4900 to print our art prints for sale. It works beautifully and like my 4880, which keeps soldiering on after six years of heavy use, I hope to keep it for a while. I will say, however, that from what I have read, it is necessary to print on this printer every day.

Worst purchase I have ever made

Joe, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Buyer beware!! If you do not plan to print daily this unit will constantly clog. With no good way to clean the print head other than using up your expensive ink. Mine is hopelessly clogged right now with $ worth of new ink cartridges in it.

Epson 4900 buyer beware!!

Frustrated, B&H Photo
26 January 2016
  • Excerpt: I'm writing this as a follow up to my initial comments. Essentially I called Epson and reported that the printer heads have not cleared despite multiple attempts at cleaning. I asked if this was a common problem and what would it cost to have it repaired.

Horrible Printer

Dve, B&H Photo
6 January 2016
  • Excerpt: I can't believe Epson is still selling this piece of junk. I bought this a couple of years ago and had more printhead clogs than successful prints. I literally had to throw out a printer that never had its starter printer cartridges changed.

WHEN it works - great prints - CLOGS are major issue

28 December 2015
  • Excerpt: I have owned this printer for 2.4 years and as long as I print daily it is great! Beautiful prints. BUT..... I was gone for 13 days and had my neighbor turn it on and off every 3 days to cycle heads and make sure it went thru a nozzle check. Nothing was printed during that time.
