Tip

Disconnect the power. Open the cover of the case and make sure the 2 black and 1...


Follow the instructions below in an attempt to resolve the issue you are experiencing.

1) Turn off the printer and remove all paper from the paper tray & disconnect it from the computer.
2) With the printer off, check for any obstructions such as torn paper or foreign objects.
3) Turn on the printer (still disconnected from the computer) and check the lights / lcd screen.

Still getting the same error ? Go for Warranty or Service.

Else,

4) Place 20-30 sheets of paper in the printer, ensuring none of the paper is torn or creased.
5) Make sure that the paper is flush with the far right edge of paper tray, move the left edge paper guide over so that it touches the left side of the paper.
6) Try to feed paper manually (using the paper feed button).

Still getting the same error ? Go for Warranty or Service.

Else,

7) Before re-connecting the printer to the computer, uninstall the printer driver and restart the computer.
8) Re-install the printer driver.

How do i check the ink levels in the cartridge?


One of two ways. If the status monitor (in the lower right-hand corner of the screen) is open, double click it and it should display the ink status in that window. If the status monitor is not open, open your printer folder, right-click on the printer icon and select properties. Then in the next window, select the Maintainence tab and select "start status monitor" at the bottom. This will start the status monitor and display the ink levels. Ink levels displayed are only estimates though, as there are no sensors in this model. You should use the cartridges until you see print defects, in order to get your money's worth out of them.

My printer is not printing anything. the status light isnt even on what should i do?


Does the "Status Monitor" in your printer display any errors?
Is the printer cover securely closed?
Is any of the LEDs in the printer flashing?
What happened just before the printer stopped working? Did you have a poer failure? Did you install new software or hardware or a Windows update?

Please, report back the status (ON, OFF, BLINKING) of the following LEDs:

TONER
DRUM
PAPER
STATUS

How do I know WHICH of the ink cartridges is out?


I found this on the Epson Web Site. If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.
You can download the Reference Guide with pictures and all.

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/r220__/r220__rf/index.htm

Windows
You can check the amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges using EPSON Status Monitor 3 or the progress meter. Refer to the sections below for details.
EPSON Status Monitor 3 Access EPSON Status Monitor 3 in one of the following ways.
  • Double-click the printer-shaped shortcut icon on your Windows taskbar. To add a shortcut icon to the taskbar, see the section below.
    font26.gif See Monitoring Preferences
  • Open the printer software, click the Maintenance tab, then click the EPSON Status Monitor 3 button.
A graphic displays the remaining amount of ink.

If any of the ink cartridges installed in the printer is broken, incompatible with the printer model, or improperly installed, EPSON Status Monitor 3 will not display an accurate calculation for the amount of ink remaining in any of the ink cartridges. Be sure to replace or reinstall any ink cartridge indicated by EPSON Status Monitor 3.

Pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck.....

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.
