Faxing a Document or Photo
Your Artisan 800 Series lets you send faxes by entering fax numbers or selecting
entries from a speed dial list. Using the Automatic Document Feeder, you can fax
up to 30 pages at a time.
See these sections:
■
“Connecting to a Phone Line” below
■
“Setting Up Fax Features” on page 19
■
“Sending a Fax” on page 23
■
“Receiving Faxes” on page 25
For more information on faxing and fax settings, see the on-screen Epson
Information Center.
Connecting to a Phone Line
1. Connect the phone cable from the wall jack to the LINE port on the back of
the Artisan 800 Series.
Note:
If you’re connecting the Artisan 800 Series to a DSL phone line, you must plug a
DSL filter into the wall jack or you won’t be able to use the fax or telephone
equipment as described below. Contact your DSL provider for the necessary filter.
18 Faxing a Document or Photo
2. To use a telephone or answering machine, you need a second phone cable.
Connect one end of the cable to the telephone or answering machine, and
connect the other end to the EXT. port on the back of the Artisan 800 Series.
When you receive a call, if the other party is a fax and you pick up the phone or
the answering machine answers, the Artisan 800 Series automatically begins
receiving the transmission. If the other party is a caller, the phone can be used as
normal or a message can be left on the answering machine.
Note:
Your phone or answering machine must be connected to the EXT. port (not to a wall
jack) for the Artisan 800 Series to detect incoming fax calls properly. It’s a good idea to
set the Artisan 800 Series to pick up calls after your answering machine; to adjust the
number of rings after which the Artisan 800 Series answers, press the Home button
and select Setup, select Fax Setting, select Communication, and select Rings to
Answer.

Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head four times, leave your
Artisan 800 Series turned on and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then
try printing again. If you do not use your Artisan 800 Series often, it is a good idea to
print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
56 Maintaining Your All-in-One
Checking the Ink Cartridge Status
Your Artisan 800 Series will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or
expended by displaying a message on its display screen or your computer. You
cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges

expended cartridges before printing or copying.
To check ink cartridge status from the display screen anytime, follow these steps:
1. Press the Home button, if necessary, and select
Setup.
2. Select Ink Levels. You see a screen like this:
A cartridge marked with
is getting low on ink.
See page 59 to replace the cartridge, if necessary.
3. Press OK to exit.
A window may appear on your computer screen when you try to print when ink is
low. This window can optionally display ink offers and other updates retrieved
from an Epson website. On a Windows or Mac OS X 10.5 computer that is
connected to the Internet, you may see a screen asking if you want to receive these
Epson offers the first time you try to print when ink is low. Click Accept or

We recommend that you use genuine Epson cartridges and do not refill them. The use
of other products may affect your print quality and could result in printer damage.
Yields vary considerably based on images printed, print settings, paper type, frequency
of use, and temperature. For print quality, a small amount of ink remains in the cartridge
after the “replace cartridge” indicator comes on. The printer ships with full cartridges
and part of the ink from the first cartridges is used for priming the printer.
For best printing results, use up a cartridge within six months of opening the package.
Store ink cartridges in a cool, dark place. If cartridges were exposed to cold
temperatures, allow them to warm up to room temperature for at least 3 hours before
using them.
58 Maintaining Your All-in-One
Replacing Ink Cartridges
Make sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. You must install new
cartridges immediately after removing the old ones.
Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are
vacuum packed to maintain reliability. Leave the expended cartridge(s) installed until
you have obtained a replacement, or the ink remaining in the print head nozzles may dry
out. If you remove a low or expended cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use it.
1. Turn on the Artisan 800 Series.
If a cartridge is low or expended, you see a
message on the display screen. Note which
cartridges need to be replaced and press OK.
(You cannot print until you have replaced any
expended ink cartridges.)
If you’re replacing a cartridge before it’s
expended, follow the steps below.
2. Open the scanner.
Caution:
Make sure the Automatic Document Feeder is closed when you open the scanner.
3. Squeeze the tab on the cartridge and lift it straight
up. Dispose of it carefully. Do not take the used
cartridge apart or try to refill it.
Warning:
If ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with
soap and water. If ink gets into your eyes, flush them
immediately with water. Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children.
Replacing Ink Cartridges 59
4. Remove the cartridge from the package. Do not touch the green chip

Problems and Solutions
Check the solutions below if you’re having trouble using your Artisan 800 Series.
Note:
If the screen is dark, press the touch panel to wake the printer from sleep mode.
Printing and Copying Problems
■
Make sure your paper is loaded printable side down (usually the whiter,
brighter, or glossy side). Don’t load paper above the edge guides.
■
Make sure the type of paper you loaded matches the paper size and paper type
settings on the control panel when copying (see page 14), when receiving faxes
(see page 25), or when printing with your printer software (see page 49).
■
Legal-size documents can be scanned, faxed, or copied using the Automatic
Document Feeder. If your copies are cropped, make sure you’ve loaded legalsize paper in the paper cassette (see page 7).
■
Make sure your original is positioned against the back left corner of the
scanner glass. If the edges are cropped, move your original away from the
edges slightly.
Document Feeding Problems
If documents don’t feed correctly in the Automatic Document Feeder, make sure
the corners of the paper are not bent, folded, or curled up. Do not load more than
30 letter-size or 10 legal-size sheets at a time. If documents have jammed:
1. Open the ADF cover and pull any paper out to the left.
Caution:
Do not try to remove the paper without opening the ADF cover first.
2. Lift open the ADF and check for any jammed paper underneath.
62 Solving Problems
Paper Feeding Problems
If paper jams when printing, check the following:
1. Open the scanner and remove paper as shown, including any torn pieces.
Caution:
To prevent damage, avoid handling parts inside the printer.
2. Pull back on the tabs to remove the cover inside the Artisan 800 Series. Then
remove the paper as shown, including any torn pieces.
3. Reattach the cover and close the scanner.
4. You may also need to check other locations for jammed paper, such as the
back cover or auto duplexer (if installed), the paper cassette, and underneath
the printer. See the on-screen Epson Information Center for more information.
Problems and Solutions 63
Faxing Problems
■
Make sure the recipient’s fax machine is turned on and working.
■
Make sure the LINE port on the Artisan 800 Series is connected to a telephone
wall jack. Verify that the telephone wall jack works by connecting a phone to
it.
■
If the line has static, press the Home button and select Setup. Select
Fax Setting, then select Communication. Turn off the V.34 and ECM
(Error Correction Mode) settings.
■
If the Artisan 800 Series is connected to a DSL phone line, you must have a
DSL filter connected to the phone jack. Contact your DSL provider for the
necessary filter.
■
If fax calls are disconnected when you hang up, make sure a phone or
answering machine is connected to the EXT. port.
■
If an answering machine is connected, set the number of rings to answer for
receiving faxes to be greater than the number of rings for the answering
machine.
Print Quality Problems
■
For the best print quality, use Epson papers (see page 10) and genuine Epson
ink cartridges (see page 59).
■
If you notice light or dark bands across your printouts or they are too faint,
run a nozzle check (see page 55) to see if the print head needs cleaning.
■
If you notice jagged vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. See
the on-screen Epson Information Center for instructions.
■
The ink cartridges may be low on ink. Check your cartridge status (see
page 57) and replace cartridges, if necessary (see page 59).
■
If you’re copying, place the document flat against the scanner glass.
■
Clean the scanner glass with a soft, dry, lint-free cloth (paper towels are not
recommended), or use a small amount of glass cleaner on a soft cloth, if
necessary. Do not spray glass cleaner directly on the glass.

Epson America, Inc., Limited Warranty
What Is Covered: Epson America, Inc. (“Epson”) warrants to the original retail purchaser
that the Epson printer covered by this limited warranty statement, if purchased and
operated only in the United States or Canada, will be free from defects in workmanship
and materials for the warranty period, as measured from the date of original purchase. The
“warranty period” means two years, if you registered your printer purchase with Epson
within 60 days of purchase, and one year otherwise. For residents of California or Quebec,
failure to submit the product registration form does not diminish your warranty rights.
For warranty service, you must provide proof of the date of original purchase.
This limited warranty statement also covers any Epson-branded duplexer purchased
separately for use with the printer. The warranty period for your duplexer is the same as
the period for your printer. In this limited warranty statement, the “product” means the
printer and the duplexer.
What Epson Will Do To Correct Problems: Should your Epson printer prove defective
during the warranty period, please call the Epson ConnectionSM at (562) 276-4382 (U.S.)
or (905) 709-3839 (Canada) for warranty repair instructions and return authorization. An
Epson service technician will provide telephone diagnostic service to determine whether
the printer requires service. If service is needed, Epson will, at its option, exchange or
repair the printer without charge for parts or labor. If Epson authorizes an exchange for the
defective unit, Epson will ship a replacement printer to you, freight prepaid, so long as you
use an address in Canada or the U.S. (excluding Puerto Rico and U.S. Possessions).
68 Notices
Shipments to other locations will be made freight collect. You are responsible for securely
packaging the defective unit and returning it to Epson within five (5) working days of
receipt of the replacement. Epson requires a debit or a credit card number to secure the
cost of the replacement printer in the event that you fail to return the defective one. If
Epson authorizes repair instead of exchange, Epson will direct you to send your printer to
Epson or its authorized service center, where the printer will be repaired and sent back to
you. You are responsible for packing the printer and for all costs to and from the Epson
authorized service center. When warranty service involves the exchange of the printer or a
part, the item replaced becomes Epson property. The replacement printer or part may be
new or refurbished to the Epson standard of quality, and, at Epson’s option, may be
another model of like kind and quality. Exchange products and parts assume the
remaining warranty period of your original product covered by this limited warranty.
What This Warranty Does Not Cover: This warranty covers only normal use in the
United States and Canada. Using this product for continuous production or similar high
duty purposes is not considered normal use; damage, maintenance or service from such use
will not be covered under this warranty. This warranty is not transferable. This warranty
does not cover any color change or fading of prints or reimbursement of materials or
services required for reprinting. This warranty does not cover damage to the Epson
product caused by parts or supplies not manufactured, distributed or certified by Epson.
This warranty does not cover ribbons, ink cartridges or third party parts, components, or
peripheral devices added to the Epson product after its shipment from Epson, e.g., dealer
or user-added boards or components. Epson is not responsible for warranty service should
the Epson label or logo or the rating label or serial number be removed or should the
product fail to be properly maintained or fail to function properly as a result of misuse,
abuse, improper installation, neglect, improper shipping, damage caused by disasters such
as fire, flood, and lightning, improper electrical current, software problems, interaction
with non-Epson products, or service other than by an Epson Authorized Servicer. If a
claimed defect cannot be identified or reproduced, you will be held responsible for the
costs incurred.
