my son recently bought new ink cartridges for the above, when checking properties the ink section is greyed out and not showing anything printer will print blank sheets so it is recognised by pc, whats he doing wrong?
I hesitate to say this - but when installing the new cartridges did you remove the yellow sealing strip, and if you did, were any bits left behind. Apologies if you have done so, but every now and again I come across users who plonk a new cartridge in without removing said strip.
Status Monitor. Most Epson printers that I have installed the Status Monitor needs to be installed separately from the printer drivers. You can download a later version of Status Monitor from the Epson site. click here Another thought just crossed my mind, it might be worth checking the BIOS and make sure the printer is still set as ECP+EPP???
not familiar with bios settings, maybe i should say (to avoid misleading) that he was given this printer but assure was/is working, i believe he had printed before but wrong colours which led to discover of black needed.
