Epsom Maintenance Problem

  Syd Plyd 13:33 04 Apr 2005

I recently bought an Epsom C86 printer and find that when i want to check my ink levels the Status Monitor 3 button under the Maintenance Tab is Greyed out. Is there any way I Can Check my ink levels on this printer? (Recommended by PC Advisor!)

Have you installed the status monitor and is the printer turned on when you check.Does it show when printing.

check all leads and insure printer is turned on and set as current/default printer.

look in control panel> printers & faxes. you should see your printer+name+tick or cross+off line or online.

Also be aware that 'Ink level indicators' are not so much ink level indicators but an approxmation based on a page throughput count and electrontrickery
with teh nature of the images coming from the computer.
There is not contact with the cartridge, No fuel gauge or dipstick.
Just a trick to get you to buy ink before you need to.
