Minolta 2300w


color light has nothing to do with this, first try once more to reinstall drivers, if still shows wrong printer, then you have to upgrade firmware, because if you installed the correct mc2300w drivers and status monitor tell you wrong printer there can be 2 things. firmware is broken or printer/computer usb port is broken. so if you can use another usb port or another computer try it or LPT cable. and as a laast thing update firmware.

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.
