Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My Epson R230 printer runs off a computer with Windows XP home edition. This morning the printer worked. Now, with the sun over the yardarm, it does everything correctly but no ink is deposited on the paper. I.E., it runs its course over the paper, but there is no resulting image on the paper. None at all. The ink cartridges are far from empty, and everything is hooked up. I've run twenty sheets through this invisible printing, without a trace of ink. Any ideas PLEASE - Tony, Bulleen, Australia

How can i install my epson stylus photo r230 with out my cd installer?????


You can download the installation driver and software from manufacturer's support website by clicking this link

On the page which opens, select the operating system of your computer (Windows Xp/ Vista..) from the drop-down menu and click the "Search" button.

Then download the required drivers and software.

The list of available drivers will load only after selecting the operating system of the computer.

Hope this solves your problem. Thanks for using FixYa

I have windows eternity 2009 and i can't install my HP Deskjet driver

When I went looking for Windows 7 Etrenity edition, here is what I found: (My comments are below the line ... )

Windows 7 Eternity ® Edition 2009 x86 / x64 Build 7600 Final ...
10 posts - 4 authors - Last post: Sep 28, 2009 this isn't a genuine Mmcrosoft product. somebody took windows 7 and modified it, there is no such thing as eternity edition. download at ... › ... › .: Xclusive Hobbies :.Xclusive Electronix - Cached - Similar ___________________________________________________ As far as drivers go, If the Microsoft Windows 7 driver or other Microsoft OS Editions (Vista, XP, ME, 98 Second etc), nor HP drivers (found at will run your printer, you will have to go to who ever wrote Eternity Edition for your print driver. My guess is this Version of Windows 7 may be real glitzy, but like many glitzy things, will only lead to heart break in the morning when the sun comes up and you remember, you still have to go to work again. Thanks for your interest in and thanks for bringing this oddity to my attention. I have a fairly comprehensive computer lab and I might put it on one of my computers to check it out, for fun.

My epson stylus photo R230 can't print

@Edysing: That indicates the waste ink pads have reached what the printer considers to be saturation point.

The solve this you need to download the SSC utility from here

Note: Make sure you're using a Windows XP machine (it won't work with Vista or Mac)

Install the utility as normal and then configure it via the configuration tab to your R230 printer and the appropriate printer model "Epson Stylus Photo R220/R230"

  • Close the utility and locate the little printer icon in your system tray (bottom right corner of screen)
  • Right click on this icon and scroll up to "Protection Counter"
  • Click on the "Reset Protection Counter"
  • Locate and click on the "Clear counter overflow" option too
  • Now turn off your printer, wait a few seconds and then turn it back on again
You should now find your printer has reset the waste ink counter and you can printer again.

With that done you should then decide how to redirect your waste ink to an external tank.

Google can help with a few kits out there or you can always find instructions for creating your own...

DO NOT ignore the waste ink issue though as the pads will become oversaturated and leak ink if you leave the issue unresolved.

Hope that helps.

Note: Eagleflh is the owner of "Think Green" and shouldn't be promoting his products on here (he's not a customer no matter how much he pretends he is)
