All connections from my mac os x to the Epson CX4800 printer are fine. (I've owned the printer for more than 2 years and its been great). Installed new ink cartridges, however, when I go to print the job starts to print then it's automatically stopped. Help!

What OS are you running? Did you install the full Epson software before you connected the printer to the computer? Is the Epson Status Monitor running on the computer?

If you didn't install the full software or installed a generic Windows driver, uninstall the printer. Then disconnect the data cable. Reboot the computer and go to http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1326618163.1304563464@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccfkadfdhhmeimgcfngcfkmdhjidfmh.0&cookies=no&oid=58606&prodoid=56291067&infoType=Downloads&platform=All . Download and install the appropriate file from the section marked Drivers and Utilities Combo Package.

If you have a Windows OS, if the Epson Status Monitor is running, the icon for it should be present in the lower right hand corner of the screen (status/Notification area). In Windows 7, it may not be immediately visible, click on the double arrow symbol. Then double-click on the Epson Status Monitor icon and the status window should appear with the ink level indicators in the bottom half of the window.

For a Mac OS, open the Applications folder, then select Epson Printer Utility. Select your printer and click OK. Then select the Epson Status Monitor to get the ink level window.

I hope this helps.

(this is generally faster than using the No Ink spot inside the printer. However the ink levels are approximate.)

EPSON STYLUS CX4800


You need to download a "Twain Driver and Epson Scan Utility" from
the Epson Website.

But before you start downloading the Twain Driver we need to delete
the previously installed driver in your computer.

1.) Click and open the MAC or Apple Hard drive / Application and trash Epson Scan and Epson Scanner Monitor ( drag it to your trash )
2.) MAC hard drive / Library / Image Capture / Twain Data Source., we need to trash ( *.ds file )
3.) MAC hard drive / Library / Application Support., trash the Epson Scanner Module
4.) Disconnect the connection ( USB ) between the printer and your MAC.
5. ) Empty your Trash bin and restart your MAC

After the restart we can now download and install the Twain driver to your MAC.

After the installation try to launch Epson Scan under Application

CX4800 ''communication error'' with MAC OS X


I had the same problem. I think it's about how much power the printer draws from the usb port. I would suggest the following:
Plug the printer directly into the back of your mac, not into the keyboard or front ports. These ports have the most power and so should give you a trouble free connection.
If this doesn't work (and this is what I ended up having to do). Get as short a usb cable as you can to link between the mac and the printer. I found longer leads constantly caused problems with this printer wherever I plugged it in. This fixed it for me. It means they have to live very closely together but at least I don't want to throw the printer out of the window anymore!
I'm not sure who the fault lies with, Apple for providing underpowered ports or Epson for demanding too much power from the usb (it's not like the the thing needs the mac to power it up!). Probably a bit of both.

My cd/dvd player dont work right


If your cd/dvd player doesnt work right after installing a Epson cx4800 model printer on your computer, specifically with the Vista OS, its due to reported issues with the cx4800 printer drivers conflicting with drivers tied to your cd player..supposedly.

Best advice is to uninstall the cx4800 software/drivers and see if your cd/dvd player works right. once confirmed it does, then try to get the windows os to automatically detect and install the cx4800 printer without using the printer drivers that came with the printer.

If after uninstall the printer drivers and your cd/dvd player still doesnt work properly....need likely to reinstall the cd/dvd drivers ..but that can be another ugly problem as for finding the right ones to reinstall.
