Question about Epson STYLUS PHOTO 1500W

Open Question

Extremely slow printing

Hi, I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1500w printer, I bought it about 5 months ago and everything was working very well, I had had great pictures and the print speed was bearable in fact it was very good for the quality of the prints. I have started using it again after about 3 months or so and the printer is running Extremely slow (1 hour + for an A3 page) Also managed to get a few pages out of it but the pictures have lines going across the page as if it were a tester of some sort with the odd coloured streak, I have tried many things, but cannot seem to find a solution. If anyone has any ideas of what this problem is I would be very grateful. Thanks. Ben.

Epson V200 Copy Utility Problem with Incorrect Margin Output

I had the same problem forever and i just sat down today to fix it.
I have a Konica Minolta PagePro 1350w for my printer. The resolution
is set default at 600x1200 when in the Output Paper - Paper setting.
Change the resolution for your printer if you can to 1200x 1200 in the output paper - paper setting in the copy utility software, and
that should solve your problem with this half page copies. It might
still cut off some margins at the very edge, but most of the time they're just
plain paper margin. Hope this helps you out.

SOURCE: MacBook Pro Epson Print Driver Dilemma

your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below:
1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile.
2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment
3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.

My Epson 1400 is printing blacks green. After gray 40 % all my gray and black is coming out green. what can I do to solve that, and please don't tell me to chane my printer I just boughted it 4 months ago.


The printer is using your color cartridge to print black and greys.
The black cartridge must be empty and will need to be replaced.
The color cartridge has depleted one of the primary colors required
to print black.
Both cartridges will need to be replaced

Stylus Photo R320 "printer driver dealing with CD printing...


I had the same problem and was able to get my EPSON Stylus Photo R220 to print a CD using the following procedure. This should work for other Epson Photo printers as well.
1.     Open EPSON Print CD
2.     When CD is ready for printing do the following:
3.     Select Print from the File menu
4.     When “The EPSON printer driver dealing with CD printing is not installed” is displayed – click OK and select Manual Print
5.     Set Paper Size to A4 and click OK
6.     In Layout select Print Settings
7.     In Media Type select CD/DVD
8.     Then press Print

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Epson R320 prints REALLY SLOW!


That printer is known for being slow. If you believed a salesperson, they may have not done research either. But the printer is known for acceptable output for a really good price. Heres a review:
