Re: epson stylus CX3800 series

First thing I would recommend is download the driver from Epson so you know you have the latest version for your operating system. Second thing is to make sure you have the Windows 98 service pack installed that has USB support. The first version of Win 98 had NO USB support (if my failing memory serves me right)

Install the service pack and reboot a couple of times making sure you have removed any previous installations of your printer and it's associated files. Leave the printer off and no USB cable attached to the PC

Start the installation of the Epson driver with the printer OFF and no USB cable connected. When you get to the point that the install wizard tells you to ensure your printer is connected and powered on - connect the USB and switch on the printer.

If it still can't find the machine, complete the driver install with the option that you can specify the port at a later time. When done, right click the printer from the control panel/printers area and select Properties. Under Ports select USB01 or similar and apply the setting. Now under the General tab, try and print a test page. It may fail to do so. If it fails, reboot and try again.

This should see you on your way.

Epson Stylus CX3800 won't print, just prints blank pages?

the fact that U havent used it alot is the problem the printheads are clogged with dried ink, you need to do a printhead cleaning (or Several) There should be an INK button on the printer press that and scroll through the options till you find cleaning or maintenance and do a nozzle check after each cleaning to see if U are making progress. If there is no INK button then look for maintenance in the printer properties

I recently bought a new Gateway computer and when I tried to install my canon printer from the disc, it would not install it for me. I have a Canon Oixma MP210 SERIES printer that I bought three months...

You might want to check Canon's website to see if they provide a downloadable driver that will make your printer Vista compatible. Years ago, I had the same problem with an Epson all-in-one when making the jump from Windows 98 to XP. I was able to download and install a driver from Epson that restored most (but not all) of the device's functions.

Ink not empty

You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

telling you you need digitally signed driver?  or is it telling you the driver is not digitally signed? it should be telling you it is not sign and ask you if you are sure you want to proceed. if this is the case say yes and let it install that driver and finish the install all should work fine then.
