Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner/ Fax
I'm not able to use any function of this ink drinking hog unless all of the ink cartridges have some ink in them. I rarely use any color printing but the ink in them seems to evaporate.When it quits working due to a "empty" color,,I replace it and the "empty" cartridge still has ink in it!! I can't even scan anything to my computer when it says a color is out. At $60 plus to replace the ink,,I'm looking for a way to trick it into thinking the ink is all full. Would it be possible to short the contacts to the ink level sensor? I have saved the old cartridges to try this, I really just need a black ink printer but wanted the other features this one has.
Thanks for any help
I cannot help about the Printing problem, because it seems it needs to have all the catridges with some ink to Print.But i can help you about the scan problem.I was having the same issue as you and gave up trying to print, but when i needed to scan i realized the printer didnt let me touch any of the buttons, repeating the same message "change catridge".If you use the EPSON SCAN application that comes with the printer, it lets you scan directly from the PC. It takes longer, dont know why, but at least it scans.I hope it helps.
