Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4800 Color Photo Printer (C593001UCM)

2 Answers

My printer will not print.

I get the following error message:
QuickBooks PDF Converter Activation Error 20.
You cannot print directly to QuickBooks PDF Converter. Try using QuickBooks Save As PDF menu option. My printer was working before I started trying to use QuickBooks. I have a new computer, new printer and new QuickBooks.

You need to set your printer to work in QuickBooks. To do this open QuickBooks, and then go to "File" at the top left of the screen. Then choose "set up printer". Pick your Epson printer and choose "ok" then close the box. It may ask you which form you want to install the printer to, (report, invoice, sales receipt ect.) and if thats the case do them all one by one. Sorry you had to wait almost two years for this answer. I am new to this site.

When you get to the "Print" window, there should be the area where it says the type of printer. There is also a drop-down arrow. Click on the arrow and highlight your HP printer.

Emailing of invoice did not go through. Says internal error. Any fix?...Thanks.


ok - hmmm, not much to go on - huh?

when you email an invoice in quickbooks:
a) quickbooks is dependant on having the proper PDF printer drivers (for converting the document from qb format to pdf)
(or)
b) is dependant on having the proper outlook drivers (if trying to use "outlook" option for email delivery
(or)
c) is dependant on having the proper internet explorer drivers (if your trying to use Intuit Email Services)

at the moment, alot of users are reporting problems with windows 7 and compatibility of PDF converter. Could that be your case?

a) If you are using Windows 7 and trying to use PDF - you will find this forum useful:
http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en/w7itproappcompat/thread/2bd30024-0a64-4f6b-a831-8cb7c1e4cce5
there are three solutions posted:
1. the first solution (has 9 steps) - many users claim works (but the error is not the same as yours)
2. the second solution (has 13 steps) - will work on your error specifically (I know this, because yesturday, I had a client get the same error your getting - AFTER we followed the 9-step instructions.)
3. the third solution, is similiar to intuit's solution, which did not work for us.

If you are a windows 7 users, I would suggest that you try the "13 step" version first.

If you are not using windows 7 or are not using PDF converter, please tell me more about your quickbooks email preferences? are you trying to use Intuit Email Services? or Outlook?

I have XP and QuickBooks Pro 2007. QuickBooks PDF Converter shows up with my printers, but when I am in QuickBooks, and click on print, it is not an option. I have removed and re-installed the converter...


You want to print things while in QuickBooks right? That's your problem? If so, then open your QuickBooks file and go to "file" at the top left of the screen. Click on File and then choose "set up printer" from the drop down list of choices. This will open up a list of forms. Choose the form that you wish to be able to print. Then lick on the arrow next to the printers name that comes up as the default chosen in QuickBooks. Change the printer name to the printer that you want to use to print the form. Then choose "ok" and close the window. Repeat the same instructions for each form that you wish to print with your printer. You dont want to use the QuickBooks PDF converter as the choice of printer. It's not a printer driver.
