Tech Tip: How do I prevent my Epson Stylus Pro printer from powering off automatically?

By default, the SP4900 is configured to power off after 24 hours. In general, it’s better to keep the power on at all times, since this keeps a bit of ink moving through the heads and reduces the frequency of clogs. In order to disable this, do the following: 1) Power off the printer, and then power it back on with the pause button held down. This will launch “Maintenance Mode”. 2) Choose the 7th menu item down, “Power Management”. 3) In Power Management, select “Power Off Timer” and then choose “Disable”. 4) Power the printer off, and back on again.
