The best test page to use is the nozzle check, since this doesn't involve the computer. See your printer handbook on how to do this, or view it on the Epson Website.

I can not get the printer to print


I am assuming you are trying to print from a computer, not a photo memory card (SD Card).

Try the following things:

- get the manual and install CD if you have it
- use the manual or the menu on the printer to print a test page (if that works then it is probably not the printer)
- make sure the USB-B cable is connected
- Start the Print Manager software on your computer (install it from the CD if it is not installed already, download the drivers from on-line if you do not have the CD)
- Use the Print Manager to print a test page (If this works, then we know the cable works)
- in Control Panel under Printers select the Epson Stylus as the DEFAULT PRINTER
- from the application (MS Word, Photoshop, etc.) try printing and verify that the Epson is the selected printer

If this does not work please provide further details about what hardware and applications you are using and what you are trying to print.

Good luck. Bry

I have a green OK on but It will not print, will not run a test page and the error message is no help either - what should I do? besides wanting to throw it out the window?


Hello, have you tried a self-test print? which is one initiated at the printer, NOT through the computer.
If you don't know how to perform one, try pasting the link below into your web browser and having a look at the info from the Epso website.
http://www.epson.co.uk/Printers-and-All-In-Ones/Inkjet/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R1800/Drivers-Support?target=article&extn=.html&articleId=1365

If you can prove the printer self-test works, then your problem's maybe on the computer side of things; maybe even a driver. If the printer self-test (NOT to be confused with the Windows self-test) DOESN'T work, then take a look at the faq's on the Epson website under 'drivers and support' as below.

Hope this helps!
Kind regards,

My epson pro stylus says printer not responding although it will print test pages from the control panel on the printer


is your printer set up in you windows, can you go to printers, see your machine listed, make sure it is the default printer, and tell it to print a test page from there. if that doesn't work, can try other things, but don't want to write a long list of things on here to begin with.
