    the macbook pro is intel based but it still is not working....I downloaded the drivers from the Epson site....any other suggestions?  I think there is probably something that is incompatible in the Mac OS 10.5 with the Epson CX8400 printer but I have no idea what.

    ok..let's isolate this, shall we? does the printer run in test print mode on it's own?

    wow..that is truly let's go back to the beginning. Can you remove all printer software from the mac, and let's do this from the starting point?

How do i change cartridges on an Epson Stylus SX100?


You do not say which operating system you are using.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson SX100 icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.


Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

Epson LX 300 prints something else. printed paper is not as seen on the screen

I am assuming that you have the user manual. Try the following:
1 Print a self test.
2 Reload the printers drivers.
3 Re-set the printer to factory defaults

If you do not have the manual comment and I will try to post the relevant pages.

EPSON BX300F prints a page and then shows Printer Error.

Try uninstalling your printer, rebooting the computer, then re-installing your printer. If this does not work, it will require the printer top cover to be removed for further investigation. Either take the printer to a technician to investigate, or if you want to have a go yourself, post a new comment to this effect and I will provide information on how to proceed.

Pause/printer rest between pages

Hi nurse_boop (Lainey), You can try changing some of the printer settings. Assuming you're using Windows, go to Start, Printers and Faxes, and right click on your printer, choose Properties: 1. Make sure that you disable printer pooling; 2. Check/tick, print directly to the printer; 3. Check/tick, Printer is Always Available. Please keep in mind that large file sizes, images and deep colors adds to the slowdown and pauses of printers. Hardware wise, large documents requires more memory both on the printer server PC and the printer itself. Hope this be of some help to you. Post back how things are or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
