Epson Stylus C670 printer not printing spreadsheets nor web pages

My mother's printer will only print e-mails but not spreadsheets nor web pages. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software and it has plenty of ink. Sometimes the paper will go through and it sounds like it is printing but nothing shows up. Other times the paper won't even go through and it's like the printer is not getting the info. I have checked all cables, etc.

    Well sitting in church last night I thought of something. When I got to her place I created an e-mail and on purpose selected color and then a few words I made black. When I printed it out all the black words were missing.

    I then figured out it had to be out of black ink even though it showed I had enough in the cartridges. For some reason the sensors that show the level of ink is not working. Wonder why?

    You've come up with outstanding ideas and I am going to print them out for the future.

    Any idea on the sensor problem?

    Thank you soooo much for your help. I just picked up a cartridge for her this morning. What kills me is the fact that they are so expensive but if you purchase a re-manufactured - it's so cheap. I'm just afraid to go that route. What are your thoughts on that question?

    As far as the sermon (Catholic) the Priest was telling jokes and it didn't pertain to the Gospel. Oh well! At least he tried. Here in Florida the Priests are old and sometimes they even forget how to say Mass - much less leave out portions. God bless their souls they are still working though.

    Do you have any recommendations on where to buy the remanufactured ones that won't screw up the printer... I value your opinion especially if you can hold the congregations attention when you preach....

You indicated you uninstalled the software. Are you meaning the driver or the printers software?
I will go at this from both points. If you have reloaded drivers, have you switched the type of driver your using. There are 2 types PCL and PS post script drivers, switching the type may help.
Have you installed the actual printer software, and if so have you cleared the memory. Software corruption is a possibility.
Have you tried disabling any firewalls, pop up blockers, anti spyware programs like Spybot or adaware ?
I have seen those block printers and print data in the past.
Some things, when you mention web pages, are copy write protected and will not print, but that does not address the spreadsheet.
Cables would not be a problem if you can print e-mail and test pages. You are having the data blocked by some program on the computer.
You need to turn them off one at at time until you find out which one is stopping the data transfer.
That's an odd problem, but just yesterday I have a funeral home have an application problem like that , and it was their spyware program that was causing the problem.
Be persistant, and you will find it by process of elimination.
Let me know if your still having problems ok. Will be glad to research it more for you.

    I really wish I had a solution to ink level detection.

    They all work different ways, some work on looking trought a cartridge with sensors, some detect page density, some use high frequency audio tones, some are just a flat out guess by number of pages made, none which are probably more than 70 percent accurate.

    I seriously doubt a sensor or calculator is defective, just the nature of pringnt with enclosed cartridges. difficult to detect. I send reps out on calls probably daily to resolve issues which are only machines out of or low on ink.

    Wish I had a better answer.

    Soo thinking about printers at Church?? Hehehehe. Sermon was that interesting?? I really had to chuckle at the, I also do some preaching, soooooooooo it caught my attention.

    Take care.

    I hae used the remanufactured ones. With ink jet, they are pretty good. Not so for laser printers.

Epson photo stylus 320 will not print anything text or pictures printer will print the head check routine ok. printer will go through the process like it is printing but nothing comes out. we recently...

Check for a new or updated driver at Epson's web site. Remove the old driver & install the new one. If that fails, you may be better off communicating by e-mail or telephone directly with Epson to get back on track. Good luck.

Prints only on left side of page.


In printing web pages and email please try to check also the print setting before you print the page cause word document files and web pages are not the same in there printing setting. Web pages and emails has different setting so my recommendation is that when you print email and webpages next time then please check the printer settings then modify it the same settings as you wish or as your word document's output.

Status Monitor isn't hihglighted so I can't check

This can only be done by getting a new status monitor software . Follow my instructions:- STEP 1 - Install the Epson StatusMonitor software. This program comes on the CD included with the printer. It can also be downloaded from the Epson Web site ( ).
STEP 2 - Open the Epson StatusMonitor program in any application (such as wordprocessingmag-glass_10x10.gif, spreadsheets or Web browsers) that allows you to print. Click on the "File" menu tab in the control bar of the application.
STEP 3 - Select print or page setup from the "File" menu. A dialog box will open. In that box, click on the "StatusMonitor" icon, which will open the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box. Also, you can click on the "Utility" icon and then the "Epson StatusMonitor" button from the "Utility" dialog box.
STEP 4 - Click on the "Update" button to update the display (if you do not think these levels are accurate) when the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box displays the relative ink levels for each cartridge in the printer.
STEP 5 - Go back to the "Print" dialog box to change the way that the StatusMonitor utility monitors your printer and ink levels. Click on the "Utility" button again.
STEP 6 - Click on the "Configuration" button in the "Utility" dialog box. The open "Configuration" dialog box will let you adjust settings such as ink level warnings and ink level monitoring before each printing.

Using Epson Printer Stylus 120 I am unable to print more than first page of 3-page Microsoft Works 7.0 spreadsheet. I have tried printing ALL, pages 1 - 3 and highlighted text. Can get only first page.

I agree with ProusunPal, check your settings.
If you are using Vista, check to see if it is compatable and if you have the correct driver.
Try reinstalling the drivers, but I think the first suggetion will resolve your issue.
I hope this helps.
Good Luck.

I had this problem on my Vista pc but it was for all programs it would say its printing and nothing happened,what I did was leave the old one installed on the pc and created another and then deleted the old.But have you tried uninstalling excell and re-installing it to see if that changes anything, and when you reinstalled epson did you go to their site and download the updated firmware/software for the printer this could be another cause?!

Epson Stylus Photo R260 doesn't complete prints

Make sure that you have the correct paper size set in your printer settings. Incorrect size would cause the problem you describe.

Printer will only print html no pictures from the internet

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, you would need to download and install the Epson Web-To-Page Utility for you to be able to successfuly print from the Internet. Otherwise, you might to give Adobe a call just to properly uninstall the Adobe software (clean uninstallation) just to isolate the issue, if uninstalling and reinstalling the Adobe software and Epson printer driver doesn't help this maybe a case wherein you need to contact Microsoft or Apple since its considered an OS Issue.
