Question about Epson Stylus CX4800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

My husband was having a problem getting something to print on our epson cx4800, when he clicked the print button it appeared to be sending the info to the printer but nothing happened. He finally got frustrated and just turned off the printer. Now when i turn it back on it keeps reprinting the same document. I think he probably had kept resending the same request to the printer and now i don't know how many more copies will be printed. I finally turned off the printer to save ink and paper. How do i clear the buffer of the printer to keep it from continuing to print this document. thanks :)

Turn the printer power off from the wall and while it is off, turn on the pc and check if the queue is empty.

If you have windows XP click Start -- and select "printers and faxes" on the side bar,
Double click on the printer icon and see there is no file waiting to be printed. If it is, select and right click mouse and choose cancel.

Not sure the commands for Vista or Win 7. Should be something similar. May have to go to Control Panel and find the "printers" function.

Ok, what you need to do is unplug the printer from the PC, then right click on printer icon, and select, Cancel, any print jobs, by selecting the job, and removing it from the list.after cancelling the print job, reboot, then connect the printer, and reboot, then at the next desktop you should be OK.

Printer won't recognize cartridges


In my opinion, the Epson series has a problem with their printheads assemblies as they do get clogged too easily. I've experienced this much too often. I do believe that the printheads can be replaced, but it's less of a hassle to just buy a new printer.

One possible solution that we can advice is to do a complete trash & reinstallation of printer driver as well as the scanner driver.

For iMac with Leopard, there is a big possibility that the printer driver is not the correct epson series printer driver that's why you can't ink levels is unavailable. Just to set an expectation, printer driver for CX4800 is pre-installed as resident driver in Leopard. Please try to the following to solve that issue:

Determine Which Driver is Currently Being Used
1. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open System Preferences.
2. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.
3. In the list of printers on the left side of the Print & Fax window, click once on your Epson printer to select it.
4. Check the name of the driver being used; it is displayed in the center of the Print & Fax window next to “Kind”.
5. If the driver name displayed next to “Kind” is Gutenprint, the incorrect driver is being used. Follow the steps in the next section to select the correct driver.

Selecting the Correct Driver
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Delete the print queue and remove the printer from Print & Fax by clicking on the minus (-) button under the list of printers. Click OK to confirm the removal.
3. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open System Preferences.
4. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.
5. Turn on the printer. The system should add the printer automatically.
6. If the system does not add the printer or if it adds it using the Gutenprint driver, contact Apple for assistance. You may need to reinstall the Epson drivers provided with Leopard.

NOTE: To check ink levels, click the Utility button, then click EPSON StatusMonitor. The Supply Levels button will not show remaining ink levels for your Epson printer.
