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.

Why is my ink light on a steady red? I have new Epson ink cartridges in it and it has also been cleaned.


sometimes the printer does not recognize that you have changed inks, however check that they are in correctly and are full, check status monitor and check ink levels on screen. As a last resort, turn printer off wait a few seconds and then turn on again.

I must press the on/off button several times before turning the printer on or off. How can i fix it?


If your printer had a paper jam and will not go online it is most likely a hardware failure. You will need to contact the manufacturer or a qualified technician to repair the printer. Make sure you have powered it off for several minutes at least, uninstalled and reinstalled the driver, and cleared the print queue. But if the printer itself is offline, none of those things will help as it is the printer itself that had failed.

I have an Epson CX4800 printer. It won't print because there is low ink. My laptop indicates that the ink is low, but won't tell me which color it is. How can I connect the two so that I know which ink is...


What OS are you running? Did you install the full Epson software before you connected the printer to the computer? Is the Epson Status Monitor running on the computer?

If you didn't install the full software or installed a generic Windows driver, uninstall the printer. Then disconnect the data cable. Reboot the computer and go to http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@1326618163.1304563464@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccfkadfdhhmeimgcfngcfkmdhjidfmh.0&cookies=no&oid=58606&prodoid=56291067&infoType=Downloads&platform=All . Download and install the appropriate file from the section marked Drivers and Utilities Combo Package.

If you have a Windows OS, if the Epson Status Monitor is running, the icon for it should be present in the lower right hand corner of the screen (status/Notification area). In Windows 7, it may not be immediately visible, click on the double arrow symbol. Then double-click on the Epson Status Monitor icon and the status window should appear with the ink level indicators in the bottom half of the window.

For a Mac OS, open the Applications folder, then select Epson Printer Utility. Select your printer and click OK. Then select the Epson Status Monitor to get the ink level window.

I hope this helps.

(this is generally faster than using the No Ink spot inside the printer. However the ink levels are approximate.)

Epson Status Monitor 3 : Epson LX-300+II ESC/P 'Communication Error' appears after printing successfully ?


Check all connections and make sure all devices are on. If the power was turned off during printing, cancel the print job. If the error does not clear, see your printer documentation.

I want to change black ink cartridge in Epson Printer TX110


If ink level reach ink out level, follow How to.. on Epson status monitor. But, if it's not, turn off printer. Unlock carriage lock, then move carriage by hand. Or you can turn on printer and unplug power while carriage moving. Then move by hand freely.

You should be able to follow the bottom link and find it or you can check this answer .

CX7400 will not accept non epson cartridge


I'm assuming the problem you're getting is that either:

  1. The printer itself is refusing the accept the cartridges

    OR

  2. Your computer is putting up a message complaining that you are using non-Epson cartridges and demanding that you change them.
If the problem is: #1 then chances are the cartridges are not compatible with your printer and you've been sold a batch that have the wrong chips (it happens)... If so, contact the seller and request a refund/replacement or just find a more reputable seller.

If the problem is #2 though you can deal with the nagging message by turning off Status Monitor as follows:
  • Start > Printers & Faxes
  • Locate your printer, right click and choose "Printing Preferences"
  • "Maintenance" tab
  • Click on "Speed & Progress"
  • Tick the box "Disable EPSON Status Monitor 3"
  • Click OK a couple of times to get back to the desktop.
Now if you print you should find that the nag screen doesn't show and leaves you alone.


Hopefully this will get you working again.

Cheers.

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.

Epson TM-U220D Printer Status


Hi, On the PC that will not display printer status correctly, pls run MSCONFIG (start, run, type "msconfig", OK); in the System Configuration Utility Window, click on the tab Startup, see if the EPSON Status Monitor is present and checked. If it is not present, check if you have Lavasoft Ad-Watch or similar program running. This prevents the EPSON Status Monitor from registering and running correctly. If such a program is running, temporarily remove Automatic setting and reinstall the EPSON Status Monitor. Accept any registry modification at this point. Restore all settings once installation is finished. If still a no go, try wiggling the parallel connector a bit and make sure it is snug and fit. If all else fails, you may have to consider: Installing to only 1 PC, share and make it a print server assuming you have networked all your PCs; or re-installing Windows (Ouch!) Hope things work out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
