Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

The 'Print CD' driver software for the Epson Stylus Photo R1800

I made the ultimate mistake of buying the printer on eBay! When do you buy a used printer? NEVER! I went thru no less than two complete 8 cartridge sets of ink blowing out the nozzles, and when I finally mustered up the courage to print on a DVD, nada! Turns out, that the softare CD's included in the original box, the seller couldn't find on mine. The 'Print CD' software is a stand alone CD that has nothing to do with the driver download on Epson's site. And do you think Epson offers the 'Print CD' anywhere? Not on your life. I've geeked around on the net 'til I'm cross-eyed, and even appealed to Epson, all to no avail. So can somebody PUHLEAZE tell me where there's a link or download available for this machine?!

    Soulvisitor, you're great. You step right up to the plate and go hunting for me. I should hit all the ratings links just to pay you back for trying so hard. Truth is, I haven't got the heart to tell you this, but I'm a Mac driver, and the two you were kind enough to hunt down were for PC's. But before you go scratching for the Mac version, let me try the knocked off disc I got tonight from a retailer here in town. I don't know if my Mac will even be able to read it, 'cuz it was burnt on a PC, but I'm fixin' to find out.
    Again, thanks so much for your help. I'm gonna hit the FixYa! button on your behalf anyway. Thanks loads bra.

    I can not get the 'epson print cd' software for my r1800 from anywhere (no longer available on the russian site) I would prefer the 'OSX intel' version but would happily settle for a windows vista copy. Please, please help. I'm so frustrated I could punch a zen monk............. and I am a zen monk!

    After much trawling around the web...this definitely worked for me:
    To get your EPSON Print CD software working for Mac OSX Intel...I suggest:

    Do a complete removal and re-installation of the Epson printer software and drivers.

    In the Mac Hard Drive/Applications/Utilities open the Printer Set-up Utility and remove all the references to the printer model.

    Trash all Epson printer do this go to the Mac Hard Drive/Library/Printer and move the entire Epson folder to the trash, then shutdown/restart & empty trash.

    Run the repair utility (may take up to 30 mins) ... Mac Hard Drive/Applications/Utilities and open the Disk Utility. Select Disk First Aid at the top of the dialog box.Select the Mac Hard Drive Icon in the left hand pane. & select 'Repair Permissions' at the bottom of the dialog box.Restart your Mac.

    Now download the relevant driver/s from the support pages on the Epson website.
    After installing - the driver needs adding to the printer list. To do this go into the hard disk, go into the folder called Applications, double click on the folder called ‘Utilities’. You should see in this window the ‘Printer Setup Utility', double click on this icon. This will present the Printer List. Delete any reference to the printer that may be on this list already as these may not be a genuine EPSON driver. Click the add icon at the top and a dialogue box will appear, this will be the Printer Browser.
    Highlight the printer and then select add printer. Note: Do not choose a printer from the list of Epson printers. Your printer will not appear here, nor will the genuine Epson driver. You should be able to highlight the printer and choose 'Add'. If 'Add' is not available, leave the Printer Browser open and do not do anything else on the Mac, leave it open for about 10 minutes. When you come back to it, you should now find 'Add' available.

    The printer should now be added to the printer list. Test the printer by highlighting it on the Printer List and selecting 'Utility'.

    To get 'EPSON print CD' working make sure you install the 'Epson Print Module' first (on the Epson support pages)...
    Then download Epson print CD version 1.6aE from here (it's a Russian website, don't worry - the software is in English!):

    Some of above sound far out like leave it for 10 mins but who knows, you may find it usefull, didnt test link.

Trying to replace ink cartridges on my HP Officejet 6600 with replacement cartridges from LD Products. The printer keeps telling me it is defective. I've tried 3 different ones and none of them will

The printer is checking for a valid printer cartridge and apparently can't communicate with the LD products cartridges. I wouldn't recommend buying 3rd party ink at all actually, most just shortens the life of your printer and clogs things up. You should try eBay and find some HP cartridges for less in my opinion.

Hello, I bought a printer phaser 3100mfp 6 months ago and when i went to the computer shop they said that it is not enough just to charge the cartridge and i need special smart card to buy.Is it...

Most current laser printer cartridges use an intelligent chip that tracks usage of the cartridge, even if you move the cartridge from printer to printer. When the chip reaches empty, it is empty. So when you refill the cartridge, you also need to replace that chip. Most reputable sellers of toner will make a customer aware of that or include it. However, some less reputable sellers do not because the chips can run up to 15 dollars each which will make the toner look like less of a bargin. There are usually sellers on Ebay that have the chips you need available.

The Black is not printing, even after cleaning the head several times

With the EPSON'S you must "Genuine" Epson Cartridges. It does not print good with Generic.
I went thru 2 sets of cartridges, trying to clean the heads alot of times. Finally, had to buy another one.
If you are using generic, change back and see what happens and try again. If not , Good Luck.

Lexmark X2600 refill problem

many printer manufacturers put something (a chip?) in the circuit of the cartridge to prevent refilled ones from being recognized by the printer....when the "factory" cartridge is empty, the only way for the printer to see a full cartridge again is by using a "new" factory one, ...i guess it's the big name brands way of making sure you buy "their" ink and not use refulls.

HP printers use cartridges that ARE the print head. On occasion, the cartridge could be defective...especially if they are the remanufactured type. Try replacing your cartridge with a new HP cartridge.
