    After careful checking plus advice from my grandson in law- a computer expert-he owns a business of servicing corporate computers & electronics- has contracts with Fort Benning Ga, West Point Pepperell, Turner Broadcasting. I found it cheaper to replace it rather than pay for what might not be all the problem-I bought one just like it on line for $117.00- free shipping and one free black in, & one color ink-actual cost for a new one was really about $50. I am going to scrap this one-too many things gone wrong

Hello, the printer will not print out forms either from a adobe pdf file or from the internet; it leaves the page blank or just prints out the grids but no text.Please can you help?


Hi. Try turning off the image sharpening in the print settings.
For Windows, open the file and go to File > Print > Preferences/Properties in the Print window> Image Enhancement tab in the Lexmark 4500 Series Printing Preferences > choose None for Image Sharpening. Hit ok. Click Apply to save settings. Hit print to start printing. For Macintosh, open the file > go to File > Print > Print Settings > Advanced Settings > Image Sharpening > adjust setting to None. Try to print. Hope this helps. Good luck!

How do you print envelopes?


More information is required so I will only assume you are using Excel as a database. Excel is a spread sheet program used by accountants or for mathematical formulas and ledgers. Access is the Database program, however, Excel has functions which is faster to sort and work with address, phone number, zip codes. I will confess, I use Excel as Database because it is quick and easy. I do not know what version of Excel you are using so I will describe it from Office 2007. From Excel make sure you have headers above each column i.e. First Name in Cell A1 Last Name in Cell B1 Address in Cell C1 ect.

Make sure your data is correct and case sensitive as you would like it. If you want zip+4 select the Colum and right click to format the cells using special and select Zip or Zip+4.
It is easiest to use Microsoft Word for the next step rather than format the cells, add page breaks, and customize the print size.
Save your document as an Excel document where you can find it to import it into Word.
Open word and select Mailings then Start Mail Merge and Step by Step Mail Merge.
Select Envelope and next. Select envelope options to change envelope size, font and print options.
Click on Next Select recipients.
Click on browse under select an existing list.
Select the Excel file with your address information.
From the Select Table check the First row of data contains column headers.
Click on the OK buton.
Arrange your envelope then Preview it and your good to go.
If you have an older version of word selects Tools and click on Mail Merge.
Select Get Data.
Pull down Excel for document type.
Select entire Spread Sheet.
Layout your document and complete the merge.
On old versions of word it may not recognize the Excel file. If this happens open the Excel file and save it as a Database File (.dbf) and it should work.
I hope this helps since I did not have enough information from your question.

When you see the File Save Settings window, you need to select the location, name, and format of the scanned image file you want to save.
  1. In the File Save Settings window, specify the file folder in which you want to save your scanned image. Click the My Documents or My Pictures radio button (Windows XP or earlier versions), or the Documents or Pictures radio button (Windows Vista or Mac OS X).
  2. If you want to select another folder, click Other, then click Browse (Windows) or Choose (Mac OS X) and select the folder. If you want to save your image on the desktop, simply click Other.
  3. Specify a file name prefix with an alphanumeric character string. A 3-digit number is automatically added to the file name, but you can change the Start Number if you like. If you are scanning multiple images at once, each image will receive a different 3-digit number.
  4. Select a file format. Depending on the format, the Options button may be available for making detailed settings.
  5. The check boxes at the bottom of the window give you these options:
  • Overwrite any files with the same name: Select this option if you want to reuse the selected file name and location and overwrite previous files with the same names.
  • Show this dialog box before next scan: Select this option if you want the File Save Settings window to appear automatically before you scan in Home or Professional Mode. If you deselect it, you must click the File Save Settings button to open the window.
  • Open image folder after scanning: Select this option if you want Windows Explorer or the Macintosh Finder to automatically open to the folder where your scanned image is saved when Epson Scan finishes scanning.
6. Do one of the following, depending on the currently selected scan mode:
  • Home or Professional Mode: Click OK. Epson Scan starts scanning.
  • Full Auto Mode: Click OK, click OK again, then click Scan. Epson Scan starts scanning.
The scanned image is saved in the file and location you chose.
