Windows 8 doesn't display ink cartridge levels

  Kretika 10:20 20 Nov 2013

I have an Epson Stylus Photo R320 printer which was working perfectly with my new pc operating Windows 8 until one of the cartridges ran out of ink. I no longer get the warning that a cartridge is running out and cannot find any information on which of the 6 cartridges needs replacing. Help please.

This is for Vista but might still apply. link

You might need to look for the printer in Control Panel/Devices & Printers.

I had the same problem with a D92 printer on Win 7 and Win 8. Although the printer worked fine the status monitor was missing. I downloaded the Vista 64 bit drivers and now I get 'printing preferences' in the list when I right click the printer (in Devices and Printers). This brings up the status monitor. I just installed 'over the top'. It's worth a go.

Driver. No drivers for Win 7 or Win 8 available.

Should have added I'm assuming your system is 64-bit.
