Epson 740 prints garbage error message EKM!!1395/5

The printer was working fine on monday, but today everything comes out looking like meaningless garbage with the same error message at the top of the page each time:
EKM!!1395/5
AEKM!!!!!
AS SEMOUE1QMSOGU!ieCyc
Apparently there is no driver to update for Windows xp as this is an old printer, but we'd like to keep it around.

Unistall the printer using the Control Panel

Go to Epsom www.epson.co.uk/

Obtain the drivers for the printer and copy them to a location on your hard drive re-install the printer using the Add Printer in the Printers and Faxes area if XP finds the LX allow it to install.

Once it is installed do a Print Test page , if the print is correct you are on a roll if not go to Device Manager and ask it to update the driver
It will ask you if you have a better driver say yes and point it to the entry you made on your hard drive

Message reads "Replace PF Kit" but everything is working fine. Is this an error and if so, how do I clear it??


The PF kit has life expectancy, if everything works fine just reset its counter.

Press "3 & 9" together, select the desired parts counter reset.

Error message: black cartridge unsupported


Make sure that your printer firmware is updated. Please visit the Lexmark website to download and install the Lexmark Firmware Update. Select your corresponding model to start the download.
Should the error message continue to display after successfully updating your printer, try to re-seat your black cartridge in the printer.
If that doesn't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for further assistance. Thanks.

Problem with colour printing. Orange and green


Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied.
Throw it to a recycling center.

I TRY TO PRINT ONE PAGE AND THE PRINTER PRINTS MULTIPLE PAGES AND IT IS ALL GARBAGE.


This happens when you have the wrong driver software loaded into your computer. Try printing a test page directly from the printer. Hold the 'page feed' button as you power up the printer. This will tell you if the printer is working. If this is ok, try a different print driver in your computer.
