There is no problem if the printer is still printing . The cartridges have a special chip which is special to the printer and only the manufacturer can put a new one in. It knows how much ink is in the cartridge and will inform you when it is empty. When you refill it, however, and do not replace the chip, the printer may still print normally but will give a message that the ink cartridge is empty. Just use it until the printing is bad and refill it again.
Are you printing directly to your printer or printer in a network?
If you are printing directly, the problem is the Print spooler maybe stop.
To restart this, follow this procedure
Go to START MENU Choose Commamd prompt, right click mouse and run as administrator (You should be in this command C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32- If not type this command when you in the dos command prompt "CHDIR C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEMS32 and press enter") Type the letter "cmd" Type the word "net stop spooler" Exit Go to C: drive Choose to Windows Folder Click show content Choose system32 folder Choose spool folder Choose printer And delete all printing jobs pending Again go back to CMD window and type the word "net start spooler" Restart your computer and must also turn off your printer and then switch it on.
It will work fine right now I hope it helps you
Please let me know it you need more help. Regards
Make sure that the ink is Epson Genuine Cartridges. Epson does not like Generic. Also, with Epson, all the cartridges must be full. It will not print with either empty or generic.
Get rid of what is in que, thurn off, then turn back on, then que up the documents again to print.
Good Luck :0)
After you delete all print jobs, hold down the window key and hit 'R', then enter "services.msc" and hit enter. When the services console comes up, find "Print Spooler" and right click on it. Then click stop. Wait 15 seconds or so and right click/start the service again. If all goes well, the print jobs will be deleted. Good luck.
we need to restart the print spoolers to fix this,
click on start> Run> Type in services.msc. A window will appear with the list of services, there u will find Printer Spooler> Do a Right click on that and Restart it. Do the same thing 2-3 times and then give the command to print multiple documents, to check if the problem is fixed or not. Please let me know the same.
go to start/control panel/printers&faxes you will see what is in the que the print jobs will stay in the que until you shut off the printer if you have shut off the printer, the que will be emptied and not retrievable
If it doesn't say it is specifically for VISTA then it is not for VISTA.. Even if it does show up on the computer ,that just shows that some driver for that model printer is installed. Not necessary one that will work. Go to the weblink that I gave you. Download the VISTA drive and update the driver, using the one you downloaded ,and that will most lkely fix the problem.
ok i suppose it printed before and i suppose you have the ink and paper in it ok the printer is in standby mode in the print que soclick the print que button on the tray start printing click start printing in the taskbar and never pusg print 2 0r3 times or more then pages in you que become ready to print if not start printing in the print ques turn off the printer unplug it wait for 30 seconds restart pc then the print que is empty
clean you print que it prints all the pages because the print button was pressed several times so for to empty the print que unplug itwait 30 seconds then restart the printer if you press print more than once all the pages will print when the printer is turned on safety measure
