I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I had 4 pc's connected to a switch box to use one epson stylus 800 printer and it worked fine. It finally died so I got an epson stylus color 900 and connected it to the switch box. Now, whenever I switch between pc's the printer says its 'out of paper' and only after I shut it off and unplug and replug it, will it print on the next pc....any ideas?

Hi using an Epson printer NX 400 with my vista home premium pc and was wondering how to get the printer to use black only for text printing and then when my color inks are empty how do i use black ink only ?

And how do i use the quiet mode in the fastest speed or is that mode for next to fastest ? Amazing how noisy the fastest speed very shocking can anything be done to get it quiet ! ? - thanks . .

A:Epson Stylus NX 400

This is a lesson that the people who are making printers are in the money business and selling printers is just a means to that end. I, too, have an Epson, a Stylus Color 960. You cannot print black unless all colors are sufficiently full to print full color, whether you need color or not.

I contacted Epson years ago about this and that was their answer.

Quiet mode has always been slower on all the printers I've seen.

There seem to be two different black ink cartridges available for the 800:

What might be the difference betwwen them?
Which might be better for graphics printing?

I have a real problem. I have an Epson colour stylus 680 that was printing, connected via USB to a laptop using vista. I disconnected the USB cable for a while and now it refuses to print anything. Odd facts:
- The printer is installed again every time I connect the cable, (annoying)
- The PC detects the cable automatically, but still it doesn't print
- The print command is getting sent through, but isn't actually printing
- I have changed the ports various times and deleted printers, reinstalled them, and rebooted, etc, to no avail.

I have called Epson, who said it's better I talk to Microsoft, who then directed me to PCworld/Advent, and still I can't get the thing to work. Last time, the guy at Epson, by trial and error, I think, managed to get it working, but heaven knows how. Any help, however it comes, is extremely welcome. Thankyou

A:Epson stylus 680 not printing

Things I would try... not 100% bullet proof.

Uninstall the printer drivers and software, making sure no remnants still exists on your C:\ drive or Registry. Epson should have a Driver Sweeper or Uninstaller.

Download latest Vista x32 or x64 drivers for it... NO, Not the ones that came with the CD.

Go to Device Manager and Uninstall all USB Devices, making sure the Mouse or pointing device (if USB) is the last one you uninstall... it may take you a few tries. Once that is down, either reboot or "Scan for Hardware Changes" within the Device Manager options in Action (This is from XP, Vista may be different).

If nothing new exists as far as vista drivers, load the CD but do not use autoplay, instead, go to Explore and right click on the executable and "Run as Administrator" to see if that helps the issue.

Good Luck

Recently, my Epson Stylus RX630 displayed the message:

Parts inside your printer are at the end of your service life. See your printer documentation for details.

However, nothing is mentioned in the documentation.

After doing some online digging, I realized that it's got nothing to do with the printer being defective; it's in fact a software counter that's part of Epson's scheme for forcing people to maintain the printer every so often. Upon further googling, I found some software that resets this counter (SSC Service utility) however it only works up to RX620.

Anyone know of any solutions to this problem, either software or hardware? I'd hate to have to waste pointless bucks to pay epson for something I don't need (the ink cartridges are already so overpriced )

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but if you paid under $100 for it, and it's an Epson, I'm gonna say that in my experience, there's no way to fix it (Believe me, I tried with mine ), and you're best bet is to just buy a new one.

Hello. I just installed XP 64-bit and to my frustration there are no drivers for my printer. I am considering doing a Vista 64-Bit install, but I am afraid that I may run into the same problem. Epson's site says the drivers are "In-Box" which they say means, and I quote:

"Drivers are included with Windows Vista. Just connect your Epson product to your computer and follow the on-screen instructions that Windows Vista displays to guide you through driver installation."

But Vista site has a question mark as to whether it is compatible. Can someone please advise if my printer is compatible and if Vista 64 has drivers. Also if so how do I install correctly. TIA.

A:Epson Stylus Photo 825

Unfortunately they do not state whether it'll have 64-bit support or not. And looking under the driver downloads sections shows no support for Vista. - Epson Stylus Photo 825, Drivers & Downloads - Technical Support - Epson America, Inc.

You'll have to use the CD as stated here - Epson America, Inc. - Support - Highlights. It "might" have 64-bit drivers??? Your other choice is to give Epson's tech support a call.

The fact that you have issues under XP x64, and the Vista compatibility chart lists a question mark lends creedence that your printer is probably not supported under Vista x64. I said before, you can always try.

Do take note that even though there is a question mark under Vista 32, Epson states that the drivers are on the disk, so...??? Windows Vista Compatibility Epson Stylus PHOTO 825

I have purchased a Stylus color 860 that was a non printing unit for a good price. The previous owner stated that he had replaced the printhead per epson and then they told him that he needed to calibrate the printhead and he had no way so he sold it. It will feed and go through all the motions of printing but with no ink output on the paper. No errors noted. I have purchased the service repair manual but it mentions an Adjustment Program and I have found a web site that sells it but it looks like it went down before I could buy it. Anyone have any ideas.

When I click File-Print the printer dialog box that comes up is fine. However, when I click the printer properties button the dialog box that comes up is cut off on the right side not allowing me to see or use the "advance" button or the number of copies square. I have tried various resolution and pixel settings with no effect. The box gets bigger but the content is still cut off on the right side and there is just a wider clear margin to the right of the box. I have uninstalled the printer and then reinstalled. No effect. Ran anti-virus, anti-malware and spyware programs. Downloaded the latest drivers. It is apparently something missing in the Epson program because I have a Canon Selphy D5700 printer installed and a fax printer and the dialog boxes for them are OK.

Hi- I've checked the LPT1 port, & have run all the troubleshooting diagnostics. The printer will not print even though it has all new ink cartridges properly installed. All ideas are welcome, please! The printer was working fine, before replacing the ink cartridge. It refuses to print a test page.


A:Epson Stylus C82- printer help?!

I just recently found out from Epson that even if your only printing with black ink, the color cartridge is still being used to "build" each character that's printed. So if you just replaced the black ink cartridge, thinking the color cartridge is full.. replace that one also. The printer will not work if the color cartridge is empty... or the printer thinks it's empty. If you did replace both cartridges, then obviously one of them is bad... the printer still sees one of them, or both, as empty.

Just tried to install the drivers for the Epson Stylus C62 printer on a Win 98 machine and everything has gone crazy!!!

There is both a Centronics port and a USB prot on the printer. We followed the manufacturers installation instructions but no joy. Strange results indeed - when attempting to print the google home page, justthe top half of the google logo was printed, then on another sheet, the bottom 10% of the google page was printed.

We tried several installations but didn't manage to get anywhere. So, we then tried to revert back to the HP printer which worked fine before the Epson Stylus installation. Now we seem to be getting the same results with this printer as with the Epson!!

Has anyone experienced this type of error using this printer on '98 before ....

Thanks ....


A:Epson Stylus C62 - any problems ???


I don't know if this will apply to your situation.
I use epson printer and it worked fine. At some point, however, it started print my photos like your printer does. Into two pages.

I searched many sites and forum for the fix, but no luck.
Then Epson tech came up with this and fixed the problem.

What I did was, Opened up device manager and chose printer port, and then property. Update Driver from the driver tab, next, "display a list...", next, show all hardware, highlite (standard port type) on the left and "Printer Port" on the right.
Followed the instruction and the problem was gone.

I asked the Epson Tech why but he couldn't explain.

I hope this will work for you.

My Epson printer driver allows me to save a whole range of printer settings as "profiles" (not to be confused with proprietary printer profiles used in colour-management) .

These profiles are basically a saved "snapshot" of paper-size, colour settings, quality settings etc.

Selecting a saved profile just prior to printing automatically calls up the driver settings associated with it, and the driver settings are automatically adjusted accordingly.

Your Epson printer should have this feature I would have thought.

You can go through the ink cartridge replacement thing through epson status monitor and just pop your old ones out and put them back in, that sometimes tricks it into thinking there is still more left in the cartridge. It works most of the time for me, but you do run out for real shortly after.

As far as buying cheap ink, I've ordered a lot of cheap ink from for various epson printers. They are great for printing out stuff for yourself or papers to turn in if you are a student. I would not recommend them for photos, the color is usually fine but the problem arises over time - the ink fades in color, espically in sunlight, much more so than Epson branded ink. Perhaps the kind you are looking at won't do that, but if it smells like rubbing alcohol when it comes out of the printer I wouldn't use it for photos.

I can't answer the cartridge capacity part.

Hello all. I don't know what happened but I lost my Epson Printer and a Fax modem. They have disappeared from Control Panel>Printer and faxes. I used the printer yesterday and it worked fine. Today, it's GONE. I cannot use my CD installation disk to reinstall, because all I get is an Error, if I ignore the Error, I get a "Epson caused a General Protection fault in module Epson.exe at 0007:0035. Choose Close" Epson will close. I have tried rebooting, turning off printer, turning on printer. The only thing that I have done to this printer is update the driver on July 11/03 by right clicking Epson Rrinter>Properties>New Driver. The Wizard installed Windows 2000/ XP. I did a print job after I updated the driver. If this makes any sense, please help me. What do I do now?

Uninstall the printer drivers in device manager. Go to Epson's site and download the drivers again, reboot, and reinstall them, The drivers you downloaded on the 11th might have been corrupted while they where being downloaded.

Per chance, do you have a virus program running? If so, turn it off and try the install again.

Also, go to the device manager, and if you have DMA enabled for the cdrom, uncheck that box.

My Epson Stylus color 740 suddenly stopped printing even though it goes thru the motions of printing and even of jet cleaning, but no image. The cartridges are nearly full.
I went thru the Windows XP pro troubleshooting prompts for printer and for usb no avail. control panel hardware and system listing shows "normal operation".
I deleted the printer out of hardware and let XP detect it and re-install driver (as recommended by epson).
No results.
Is there a reset within the printer to turn on the jet command? Or is there some command that can be sent to the printer to activate the jets? The printer displays no blinking lights.
I have not gotten a response from Epson so here I am.
Thanks for any help.

OK. I'm new at all this, already have a USB printer hooked up that works fine as long as I don't throw it any curves. The Stylus hooks in with a standard printer cable. One end to printer, other end to tower. Only one way to do it. It'll print the proper test page unconnected, and when connected, the Printers section of the conttol panel tells me it's 'ready'. I select the Epson, tell it to print, and nothing happens. Could it really be a bogus cable? I hate to blame the equipment for something that's probably pilot error. I have Adobe Acrobat, Maybe I should try printing from a pdf file? I'm quite lost. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A:Epson Stylus Color 600 Printer

what are you asking it to print? you don't say, but i'm assuming that you are in a program, or on the web and pressing your "print" button in the program you are using, with the page you want to print onscreen.

of course, if you just hit "print" in the printer program and there's no page to print, it won't print.

check your options, too. in the printer program. make sure all the proper things are enabled, like the default settings, such as whether it prints "portrait" or "landscape". (portrait is the standard, letter type format)

have you closed all the windows just to see if there might be an error box displayed underneath everything?

is there paper in the printer? (it's okay to laugh. i've done that one several times!!)

i hope some of this helps.

A:Epson Stylus Error, Can't Print?

Go here and download this utility for Epson Printers.

I have used this on a couple of Epson printers. On one occasion I had an Epson C20UX which stopped working shortly after I replaced the cartridges, Epson Cartridges not compatible. The printer was left in the box for almost a year until I came across this utility. I just started the program and reset everything I could.
One thing I noticed about Epson is that inside there is a small pad which soaks up any ink left in the nozzles after printing. Once this pad soaks up a certain amount of ink the printer stops working. It seems Epson don't tell anyone this so they will either have to leave it in to get fixed or they will buy a new printer.
Try it and see if it helps.

Do any other users with this model printer find that it burns through ink faster than a wino goes through cheap moselle?
With previous Epsons I owned I found that Calidad (non-genuine) ink cartridges lasted 2-3 months with excellent results and only occasionally required print head cleaning.
Now with the C61 I find that Calidad cartridges only last 3 weeks and require frequent print head cleaning. Has Calidad not manufactured a good ink for this model or has Epson created an ink guzzler or is there a deliberate strategy to drive me away from non-genuine inks? I get a pop-up window once a week or so advising me that I'm using non-genuine cartridges and asking me if I'd like to change to genuine Epson cartridges. (Big brother IS watching me !)

A:printer problem epson stylus 680

First, how old is the printer.

Second, define "doesn't work anymore" ....does it come on and try to print? Does it go through the motions and then spits out a blank page?

Third, if it does, have you tried to pull the cartridges out and shake them a little to see if they have any left.

Also check the bottom of the cartridges to see if build up dryed ink has formed.

BTW....did the printer "just stop working one day"?

Hi dear knowledgeable folks,

Well, here's what has happened. A few days ago, my printer suddenly wouldn't print and it, as well as my computer then froze up. I had to reboot in Safe Mode. I have an eMachine and run Windows 98. Anyway, I have run and rerun the printer utilities, head cleaning, etc. The test program will print out fine, (in color)but that's all. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer, including the driver. Now, when I try to print something, it shows that the printer is doing so, but the page comes out completely white. I am a technically challenged grandmother and have no idea what to do next. This printer has been perfect up until now. I've had it since January, 2000 with pretty light usage.

If anybody has any ideas, I'll surely appreciate them.

Thank you a bunch in advance.

My friend had a problem where it appeared to be printing (also an Epson) and a blank paper came out.
The solution for him was to change the field where you tell it what kind of paper you are printing on. We moved down the list of choices and it started to put ink on the paper.

The setting that always worked fine before just stopped working.

I hope something this simple also solves your problem

My printer is not printing the correct colors. Not the shade, but the actual color. For example, blue comes out pink and orange is more red. Yellow ends up with orange lines in it. Black prints just fine. I've tried cleaning the nozzles, re-alignment, etc. and even thought it was an old ink cartridge and changed that but still the same. I'm not sure if it matters that I'm not using an "Epson" brand ink, but I've always used a generic brand and only recently experienced this problem. Any suggestions or causes?

If you haven't done so already, uninstall the printer from Windows.

Now install new ink cartridges if you haven't already done that.

Then re-install the printer driver software, remembering to turn the printer off and disconnect the USB cable before you start installing the driver. Wait for the message to appear on-screen which asks you to connect the USB cable and turn on the printer.

You are probably using the Driver Microsoft put in XP rather than a separate Epson driver specifically for the printer. The XP driver has limited capabilities and doesn&#8217;t usually have an ink monitor.

The printer is old enough that Epson evidently did not bother making an XP driver. This is their list of downloads for your printer:

I don&#8217;t think you are going to be able to get ink status on XP with that printer.

It may end being just a defective cartridge, however you could try these things:
1) Remove cartridge inspect contacts for residue from covering material. Take Swab (q-tip) and alcohol clean contacts thoroughly.
2) Clean contacts on printer same way.
3) Make sure dust and/or coagulated ink is not present on ink nozzles.
4) Reseat cartridge and run printer utility to clean nozzles and run calibration/test page.
If all the above fails return the cartridge as defective and get a new Epson cartridge for your printer.
