Help ! ... dlink router wont recognise epson printer

I have done everything i can think of and have a reasonable technological aptitude. my epson stylus photo 830U printer prints fine but only if its attached to the mac's usb port - the second laptop will print wirelessly from here too.

when i attach the printer to the USB port of the DLINK router (and the green lights are on) i cant get the router to find the printer - no matter what i do ... the manual is no help at all and i have been through etherenet/bluetooth/rendeavous and every option available .... i phoned DLINK but no one is prepared to step me through the possibilities - they fob me off to mac !

aaargh .... hope you can help >>> Gina

SOURCE: My Hp C6180 won't seem to recognise the top photo tray

I contacted HP free of charge via their instant support which works like MSN and they talked me through it step by step "it was a little irritating when they kept going off line!! any you have just typed the equivalent of war and peace"!!  I still need to contact them again at a different department, as they think it's a Mac software problem.

SOURCE: I have an Epson Stylus Photo R220 Printer connected to a linksys print server, but

Well, The first thing you should do is to try to test of the print server is properly connecting to the printer. Check the linksys printserver manual and look for how to print a status sheel from the print server. Once done, get the IP address of the print server. Go to your laptop and navigate to control panel/printer. See if you have the driver installed or download the Vista Drivers from During the installation, it will ask you what connection type your computer uses. cancel out of the installation or choose LPT1 as the port. Once done, go back to control panel/printers.Right click the R220 icon and navigate to properties. Select ports after that and add a new port. Select Standard TCP IP port after that. Once done, the wizard will appear. Input the IP address of the printer and finish the wizard. you should be good to go after this.

SOURCE: Urgent: red light error on Epson Stylus CX3650

It appears that this is an overseas model (at least for those here in the US that is) as far as I can tell. This will use the same drivers as the CX3600 model though. Depending on how long you have had this and how often you use it, you may have a waste ink reset situation. While I have not had any personal experience with this model, there are several references on the internet on how to do a reset. There is even an "SSC Service Utility" you can search for that lists this printer as being supported. It cannot reset the ink counters but it may reset the waste.
Good luck, I hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R800 (Manual Feed) missing option

I found this answer on support discussions.  Worked for me.  There is more information available on the discussion, but this was enough to fix my problem. Try Page Setup. Select to format for your printer. The choices for different all media should now be available under the Paper Size. This is a change from previous practice of creating a separate printer for each type of media.

SOURCE: epson stylus pohoto 830u paper feed

I'm afraid this series of printer (810 -830) doesn't handle heavy photo paper well - which is a bit strange for a so-called photo printer. If you hold each sheet and help it to feed it will work. But ...... for goodness sake. Your best bet is to sell it on e-bay and buy something that will handle heavy paper.

My printer doesn't recognise the new refill; and i can't seem to overide it to print. I tried a cheaper refill and then bought a genuine epson and it still doesn't recognise the replacement cartridge. ...

If this printer takes the Epson 69 cartridge you need to make sure the chip is replaced or reset on the refills you buy. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't fill these cartridges yet because there are not replacement chips (that don't violate Epson patents) or a resetter for the chip. The chip communicates with the printer how much ink it thinks is left in the cartridge so you don't run it dry and ruin your printer. Once the chip says the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print until the chip is reset. It seems to me like you bought two refill sets from sellers that are scamming the consumer by not mentioning the chip problem. This is the main reason why I don't recommend internet refills is because it is really easy to take advantage of people. I would not buy refills until a reputable store like Cartridge World or Office Depot sells refills.

Epson S20 does not recognise cartridges

It should be returned to the seller for exchange under warranty.

I presume you have removed the tags on the cartridge and ensured they have chips on the cartridge case? If all that has been done then i would be making a warranty claim

Call Epson for a replacement. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks

My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy

Wireless Adapter

actually, dlink and linksys both make excellent print routers. but that's not what you're asking is it? You want a wireless adapter to interface with your epson, which is, I take it not wireless. So, it's simple.

get a wireless print router, from one of those two companies, and hook up your printer to that router, voila

Printer will not print

More info needed here. Are any lights on or flashing? Have you tried going through the cartidge instsallation process again (but just taking out and putting back the same cartridges when told to put in new ones)? Are the unrecognised cartridges genuine Epson or compatibles? Have you tried putting genuine Epson cartridges in (even empty ones will do) to see if they are recognised? A response to these question will permit me to give you much more specific help.
