Question about Epson Stylus 1400 InkJet Photo Printer
I just got a new laptop with windows 8. I am out of ink in one of the cartridges and I can't find where to see the ink levels in windows 8 so that I can change it? I have now spent 3 days trying to figure it out. Please help.
Download the driver from epson.
For example I downloaded epson375130eu for a stylus dx4450.
then right click on the downloaded file and select "solve compatibility problems", select fix the program, select program was working with previous windows versions, select xp.
you should be able to have the ink levels. At least it worked for my dx4450

if you open the lid of the printer you should have the ink slide to have you take it out.
I would unplug the printer for about 5min and then plug it back in and then it should ask you to redo it again.

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three
cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print.
If these actions produce no positive results, or if you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have a good ink cartridge properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer
on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way.
Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. Repeat this process again if necessary.
If still nothing, it looks like you may have a failed cyan print nozzle I'm afraid, or some other internal problem. This will require checkout by a Technician. Make sure you compare the cost of repair with the cost of a new printer!

Tips for a great answer:
It depends on what type of ink cartridge you have installed.....with HP genuine ink cartridges and HP Solution center installed, everything should be there. However, if you get an HP
integrated ink cartridge refilled (i.e. HP 60, 61, 74, 75, 901,
92-98....currently offered at Costco or Frys today) or if you buy a
remanufactured/compatible HP ink cartridge, the ink levels will not be displayed nor can they be reset (HP
has a smart chip embedded within the nozzle plate at base of ink cartridge
which counts the drops and then registers as empty).....so you'll just need to
live with it and ignore 'ink low', 'non-genuine', 'counterfeit' messages and
similar while you are using these types of aftermarket supplies. The first
video below provides an overview of the 'low ink' phenomena.
NOTE: These types of 'SEVERE' cartridge errors (i.e. "refer to documentation" / "incompatible cartridges", "print
cartridge(s) problem" etc.) typically indicates the internal micro-electronics
of the HP #901 / 901XL cartridge are damaged. The cartridge's electrical wire
runs at rear and lower side of the ink cartridge are very delicate and are somewhat
susceptible to ink attack over time, which can lead to premature failures. In
addition, the older the cartridge the higher the chance of an internal
electrical failure. I suggest you first run a 'Tap 41' diagnostic test to
check cartridges electrical health (this is a forced test); you may also bypass
the error (temporarily) on all models which use HP 901 cartridges. Refer to
