First of all we need to establish if the printer actually prints anything. Disconnect from PC and try photocopying a document. If it prints a blank page then it is most likely to be clogged print heads. Use the maintenance button to run the print head cleaning cycle, it may take 4 or 5 attempts. If still nothing then leave for about 10 hours and run another set of head cleans. If still not printing you may need to apply a head cleaning solution such as this one:

If the photocopy prints OK then the problem is more likely to be software & driver related on the PC. Make sure that the USB cable is good and check that all USB ports are showing OK in your device manager. Completely uninstall old printer drivers and try a fresh installation.

Good luck, please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Epson RX680-How to print only in B+W


You can set it to "grayscale" and supposedly print only in black/grey.
However, Epson printers use a small amount of every color even when printing black only or greyscale (black). Your printer will still not work with one color tank empty.

Here is how to set it:
Open the properties page for the RX680 and on the "Main" tab, click on [Advanced]. A Note may appear egarding incorrect settings.
Click [Continue]. Find the [ ] Grayscale box and check it, the [OK]
[OK], etc.

Here is Epson's note on using grayscale / colors:

Samsung ML-2510 will not print from MAC OS on Macbook


Hi, sorry to hear you are having problems,
OK, first of all, you can stop worrying about solution #3, this printer is a USB or Parallel, there is no networking on this printer so no possibility of an AppleTalk connection.
You say you have downloaded the latest version of the driver from the Samsung website.
And, the Mac is connected DIRECTLY to the printer via USB.... ( It won't work if it's connected to a PC and then shared.. well it might work but I have not been able to make this kind of connection work...)
Well, if this is the case and you are unable to print while the PC prints fine, I expect that it is over the Parallel port or do you plug and un-plug between the Mac and PC...
It might be that the printer needs to reset after switching between the Mac and the PC, Shut off the Printer, I mean really, shut it down, unplug it for 30 seconds then connect it to the Mac and restart the Mac and start up the printer....
If it still does not work, do you have another Mac you can connect to for testing?
Also, the first test should not be FireFox, open the Text Edit app and type ( TEST ) and just print that...
Give that a whirl..

RX680 Printer Error


Try turning it off and taking out the ink cartridges and putting them back in. If that doesn't work it could be defective. If it's new then it should be under warranty.
