I cannot change my ink in my Epson Stylus SX100. There is not a button to push where the ink drop is on my printer scanner. Can someone please help me. Thankyou

If you need to replace a cartridge when the nx100_tx100_ug.1.92.1.jpg ink light is flashing or off, you can run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.
1. Windows: Right-click the nx100_tx100_ug.1.92.2.jpg printer icon in the bottom right corner of your screen (the taskbar) and select Printer Settings. Click the Maintenance tab. Macintosh: Open the Applications folder, open the EPSON Printer Utility3, select your printer (if necessary), and click OK. You see one of these screens: nx100_tx100_ug.1.92.3.jpg 2. Click the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility icon and follow the on-screen instructions to replace your ink cartridges as necessary.

I have two windows accounts, one administrator one just a user. The administrator one will print to my new lexmark printer, the user will not. Even if i change the user to another administrator it still...

you have installed the printer locally to the admin profile, log in to the computer and check printers and faxes, see if the printer is dislayed, if it is then you need to change the default printer setting (right click > properties)
if not you will have to install the printer as the user profile (log in as admin and make the user an admin)
This is a really common problem with microsoft.
Hope that helps.

Icon has disappeared and error says printer spooler not running

This is because your spooler service has stopped on the PC.
If you have Win XP, click on start and click on Run.
Type services.msc and click Ok.
From the list, scroll down to Print Spooler.
Right click on this and click on Start or Restart.
Check if you have icon back or not.

Print job set to print 33 pages I don't want - cannot cancel!

There is an icon in the lower right corner of your screen. It looks like a printer. Double click on that icon then right click on the print job then click no cancel. It should hang there are refuse to disappear. what you do after this is to turn off your printer then turn it back on then restart your computer. It should be gone after that.
