Question about Epson Stylus CX5400 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Epson Stylus CX5500 resetting; notification of need for servicing keeps popping up

We've converted our Epson CX5500 to CISS. This worked well until recently when the two red lights started blinking. Our ink supplier sent us resetting program which we tried. The server we were using could not detect the printer. When we connected it to another pc we were able to complete the resetting procedure. The technician also attached a waste ink tank. The printer worked for a day or two and now it's not working again. Is it possible that there's a problem with the hardware itself? where can i download a resetter software for my printer cx5500 w/c i used a ciss ink supply.

SOURCE: error massage not compatible ink cartrage when using ciss supply

The problem here is that Epson actually programs the hardware to recognise if you are not using genuine ink cartridges and the malfunctions you are experiencing are programmed malfunctions, they are not random faults. The .PIF file on the install disk is indeed infected with spector keylogger although after being contacted, epson denies this is true. Spector is very hard to find and was designed to remain hidden at all cost and is the height of keylogger technology even to this day.
Sadly, several versions of epsons' printer/scanners are infected and it appears to be everything made after 2005.
The net is rife with the known problems of epson ink whick appears to be the cheapest on the market but the usuage percentage is in reality much higher than other printers.
My advice is not to buy Epson products, they are unreliable and unsafe.

Is 0.08 less than 6%

Bot are numbers that are written in two different representations. To compare them safely you must convert them to the same representation.
0.08=8/100 or 8%
Now compare 8 % and 6%
Another way to do it is to convert 6% to its decimal representation then compare it to 0.08
Since we have fractions let us just compare them. When comparing fractions, we first convert them to the same denominator (here it is 100). The greater one is the one with the greater numerator: 8 is greater than 6.
Conclusion: No, 0.08 is not less than 6%

I am horrible at maths need help asap

With algebra you are learning problem solving-that is the process of problem solving using rules and equations. The best way to learn it is to shut out all distraction and work at it. If there is something you don't understand you may have to go back to the beginning and learn all the principals and rules that you don't understand- Algebra can be a very hard subject but it can be concord with persistence.

HP Laserjet 3330. Scanner bulb warming up doesn't go away. I have done the "solution 1" as discribte but nothing is happening. It goes like: - i put the power on, hewlett packard is flashing, the...

How does the bulb look? Is it bright or kind of dim. The bulb warming error is designed to halt use of the machine until the scanner bulb reaches the correct output level. As these are basically a flourescent tube, they will dim over time and at a certain point they will not generate enough light to enable proper scanning. If the bulb is dim, it will require replacement.

My fax wont work in my ricoh aficio 1515 mf??

Using the 1515 as a fax machine is a pretty simple procedure if everything works right. All you have to do is hook a working phone line up to the phone jack on the back of the copier (the one labeled LINE, not TEL).

Why won't the fax work? If it is giving you an error message, what is the message?

If you are not getting a dial tone when faxing, unplug the fax from the phone line and plug a working phone in, and see if the phone gets a dial tone. If it doesn't, there is a problem with your phone line.

You can also try plugging the fax machine into another phone line. If the fax works on that line, then there may be a problem with the first line.

Are you having problems sending faxes or receiving them, or both?
