Just bought the above printer,instaled ok but when i go into the printing properties the ink levels are greyed out,also when printing there is no progress window appearing.I have searched google & this site & tried one or two things from epson but there is no change.I have also d/loaded the latest drivers(5.5).any help is much appreciated.

Did you install the Status Monitor?

This Epson R range is very finicky about having its software installed EXACTLY according to the instructions.

Best thing is to un-install the printer (from the Printers and Faxes panel) and re-install following the instructions on the leaflet TO THE LETTER. Don't deviate one little bit from the instructions.

On a positive note - these are excellent printers, we have several.

The R300 has a little monochrome LCD monitor which shows the ink levels, which is usful when running the printer via a network print server.

Remember to un-install according to the "approved" method.

Search the net for 'SSC Service Utility'.This gives a lot more info on your Epson machine.
