That blank page is a separator page used when printing multiple documents. This function can be turned on and off in the printer settings. Go to Start>printers>right click on your printer and choose properties>click Printing Preferences at the bottom right hand side......snoop around in those tabs most likely an advanced or features tab you will find the setting for this.

Print queue stops document and will not resume


Hi,

Clearing the Print Queue in Windows:

Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.


Goodluck,

How to conserve color ink when printing only text documents.


First, make sure you have an updated driver installed in your computer. Visit http://support.epson.com for updated drivers.

To select black ink only mode and conserve color ink when printing only text documents, please do the following:

1. Open the Printers window by following the appropriate steps for your operating system:

In Windows 2000: Click START > SETTINGS > PRINTERS.

In Windows XP: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > PRINTERS AND FAXES or PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE. (Select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS under PRINTER TASKS if no printers appear.)

In Windows Vista: Click START > CONTROL PANEL > HARDWARE AND SOUND > PRINTERS.


2. Right-click on your printer name and select PRINTING PREFERENCES.

3. Click the ADVANCED tab.

4. Select the BLACK INK ONLY option.

5. Click OK.

Remember to repeat these instructions and remove the check from BLACK INK ONLY when printing photos or color images.

Epson 880 not printing in color


Was gone for the weekend.

Yes, the grayscale option gives you black and white or black tank printing only.

If you go to start menu, control panel, printers, right click your printer there is the option to print test page. In the upper left should be the windows logo in color. If you don't have that and you know you've removed the protective tape for the bottom of the color cartridges and when doing the nozzle checks "you have color?", then you probably need to reinstall your printer driver.

Is your printer connected via a USB cable, a thin cable with a flat connector at the PC and a square connector at the printer. Then, let me know. Send me your printer model from the back of the printer model sticker and I'll send you the instructions and a link to the current driver as well as a program link to download a system registry clean up utility that's free to use and can clean up from an uninstall of your printer.

Worldvet
