First of all, check to make sure your printer's USB cable is securely connected in your Macbook's USB port.

Next, make sure your Epson SX515W has the latest drivers installed for your current version of Mac OS X
Link:
Mac OS X Drivers for Epson SX515W

If you already have the updated printer drivers for your Epson SX515W already installed,
go into System Preferences> Print & Fax and see if the printer is displayed in the Printer window. If it is, click the "-" Minus button and remove your current printer.
* Click the "+" Plus button and re-add that printer.
Once you do, make to set it as the default printer.
- Now attempt to print a test page from any document you have.

See if this does the trick. If if does not, just let me know.

Regards.

If you are running the drivers included in the Mac OSX, you won't have levels. These are generic/running drivers only.

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.)

Hooked up printer to Windows 7 and can't find an ink monitor screen


Hello,

Have you installed Epson easyprint package included in CD ?

If you haven't, kindly follow this link and select Epson easy print (v3.10) for latest package.

Just install and whenever you send a document to print, you will be able to view ink levels.

Hope this helps.

Good luck

Printer will print with almost no ink on page in colour or b/w


You have to have both the cartridge installed and then
Run a nozzle check to make sure the nozzles are clean. Try running a printer self-test to make sure the printer is running properly without using the computer.


Macintosh 9.x or earlier: Open the File menu and choose Print. Click the Ink icon. You'll see a window showing the ink remaining in each cartridge.

Macintosh OS X: Double-click the Applications folder on your hard drive. Double-click EPSON Printer Utility, select the C42 Series printer in the Printer List window and click OK. Then click the EPSON StatusMonitor button. You'll see a window showing the ink remaining in each cartridge

NO WAY TO TELL WHICH INK IS LOW OR NEEDS REPLACING ON STYLUS C88+


Sounds as if you have either Linux or a Mac computer. There are ink level monitors for these operating systems, However there can be problems installing them.

On Windows the ink level monitor should pop up when printing. It is part of the printer utilities. Open printer properties and set the options desired.

When the printer stops printing, press the ink button and remove the indicated cartridge and replace. If more than one remove and shake next to your ear, replace the empty cartridges only. A tiny amount of ink remains in the cartridge when empty. This amount is so small it has a distinct sound signature compared to a part used cartridge.
