Someone at SuperUser contacted Epson and was told to turn off the WiFi router (break connection), then disable Google Cloud Printing. That had mixed results.
Others found it easier to disable WiFi on the printer, then disable GCP.

    Thanks, Jay. It took a few minutes for the Epson to decide it had finished startup (which was in an endless looping cycle!), but then I first disabled WiFi and then GCP both from the printer menu. I then reestablished WiFi and GCP and my print jobs from yesterday came through. I am so very grateful for you helping me out! Ed

I have an Epson WF-2540 printer and there seems to be a problem with the print head-for example when printing an address it prints everything but the city and state line is smeared

Epson printers have a "maintenance" screen, part of the printer properties. Do a "head cleaning", and then a "nozzle check". The nozzle check should look like the sample you will see on the screen. this isn't uncommon, and that's why you can do the head cleaning.

How do I print 1 page out of several. Cannot find print preview

You can perform this function from the software program you are using. Place the page you want to print on the screen, then go to the print function. Look for something like 'Print current page", or if you have the page number, you can enter it in a 'print pages' box.

The printer will then print what you sent to it.

My Epson wf-2540 printer won't print black I have done head cleanings and have new ink in it as well. What can I do to fix the problem?

Run a print head nozzle check to see if any of the nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.
Printing problems can be caused by cables that aren't connected properly, corrupt drivers, incompatible drivers, printer settings, missing updates, and problems with your printer. Might be best to start by insuring you have the latest printer drivers? Lastly, you might give the printer manufacturer a tech call. Good luck, Pete

Epson wf-2540 cant scan forms

It simply means that the font is not on your computer - I have to assume (as you did not mention) you are using some form of text recognition software as the message would not appear if you were simply scanning anything as an image of the page.
Just use this link to download and install the Cambria font:,58593,cambria.html
Note it gives instructions on how to do the installation!
