    WindowsXP. The driver uninstalls okay along with a few other software portions but can't uninstall the copy utility to reinstall it from the supplied disk. Can't remember the error message exactly. If I could just uninstall everything and reinstall I suspect I could fix the problem but seems funny I can't get rid of it.

    I just got it to work. Uninstalled(it finally worked!?) and reinstalled everything a few times, finally got the copy utility to work. No idea why. Thanks anyway.

Our epson stylus rx500 printer has been saying ERROR: Printer Error --> See documentation & call for support


this means that you may need a reset your ink waste counter. try to perform this

For the RX500 - Hold down "clear + setup + on"

continue to hold the buttons until the printer had powered on, then off again, then back on. Once I noticed that the LCD had flashed a blank screen, I let go of the 3 keys. In the LCD window I was given access to 3 options using the select keys.

The first had something to do with calibrating the scan light, the second option said "startup." The 3rd did the trick. An abbreviation resembling "ink pad level" was what I was looking for. Here is where I forget what I did... I think that I pressed "OK" on the keypad,. It did nothing. Then I think that I held down the clear button for around 10 seconds. When I let go of the clear button, the LCD read "Press Power to Reset." All better now!


post me a review should this work sir / ma'am coz it did for me

I have un-installed the printer. I tried to


Reinstall the software into another directory from its default directory.
Program installation are being copied its default folder directly and in your situation just put it another directory or destination of the file.
Another thing is remove a file existed in Registry by using a a Registry Cleaner/Remover.

http://download.cnet.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=registry+cleaner&tag=srch%3Ba&searchtype=downloads&filterName=platform%3DWindows&filter=platform%3DWindows

Select one of them.

Good luck!

Missing "copy.msi" file


You will have to download the whole program from HP.
Here is the website -
For XP: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-42045-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=228&product=1153481
or for Vista: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=mp-47461-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&os=2093&product=1153481

These are 300 mb and once you have them save them to desktop, or to the hardrive in a temp file. Run it and it will re-install the program.

What probably happened is you loaded a program which overwrote something in one of the files, or you removed a program that took something important with it. Believe me it happens all the time, so don't feel bad.

Goes though the motions but does not put ink on page


The problem might be a faulty print head. Try to print out a nozzle check and do a couple of head cleanings. I would like to know more info about it. Does it happen when you print from you computer? How about when standalone copying?

Cannot get LCD screen to show Replace Ink message


try this

1. Make sure your unit is powered and not printing.

2. Press the SETUP button and then use the select arrows until you see REPLACE INK, then press the COLOR COPY button. The ink cartridges will move to the replacement position.

3. Lift up the unit's cover, to access the ink cartridges.

4. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, and lift it out of the printer.

5. Before removing the new cartridge from it's package, shake the cartridge 4-5 times. Do not shake the cartridge once it has been removed from the cartridge holder.

6. Lower the new cartridge into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place. Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge, as you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

7. Repeat steps 4-6 for any other ink cartridges that require replacement.

8. Once complete, please lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus RX500 begins charging the ink delivery system.

The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus RX500 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on steady. At this point press COPY to move back to COPY mode.

Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus RX500 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus RX500 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
