How could i know if my printer runs out of ink?


Your Printer's Status Monitor tells you when the ink in your ink cartridge is about to run out. However, the Status Monitor is not always accurate. If, you turn off the status monitor, the only sign that will tell you that your ink has run out is that if your printout has white streaks or lacks the other colors.

How to reset ink counter for a epson R230


The page counter cannot be set back to 0.
The ink levels on your computer is automatically checked and displayed through the Status Monitor

If any of the ink cartridges installed in the printer is broken, incompatible with the printer model, or improperly installed, EPSON Status Monitor 3 will not display an accurate calculation for the amount of ink remaining in any of the ink cartridges. Be sure to replace or reinstall any ink cartridge indicated by EPSON Status Monitor 3.

Replace ink cartridges


1 - Open the top lid 2 - Open the ink cartridge carrier 3 - Shake the ink cartridges 4 - Unpack the ink cartridges 5 - Remove the yellow tape from each cartridge as you get ready to install it, but not before 6 - Install each color cartridge into its corresponding color slot pressing down all the way until it "clicks" 7 - Close the ink cartridge carrier 8 - Close the top lid
At this point the printer should charge its ink cartridges. Let this finish before using your printer.
Hope this helps!

Is there a workaround for using alternate brand ink cartridges in my Epson CX9400Fax printer? I have been using off brand cartridges in nthis printer for a while now but I just put in a black and it shows...


You might want to try disabling the status monitor software that is installed with your printer driver.

To do this you
  • Locate your printer in Printers & Faxes
  • Right click and choose printing preferences
  • Choose the "Maintenance" tab (top right)
  • Locate the "Speed & Progress" button and click it
  • Tick the "Disable EPSON status monitor 3" box
  • Click on OK and then OK on the previous box
You should now find that any computer generated nags screens leave you alone.

This doesn't always work but it's definitely worth a try... Also worth considering that you have bought or been mis-sold cartridges that are not compatible with your printer... It does happen.

Hope that helps.

Check status monitor? See difference of chip reach ink out and not recognized. Reset chip that ink level reach ink out. Also check chip connector at ink tank and at chip itself. Plug ink tank securely. Check status monitor again. If still not resolved, try to use anither chip.

Epson C60 Stylus Status Monitor Does Not Work On Windows Vista


I ve been having the same problem with my Epson 1290 and Windows Vista! It works fine but I cant get the status info on my ink levels. Its so annoying when u run out of ink the LED on the printer goes on but you dont know whick cartridges to replace! I hope Microsoft and Epson get this sorted out because it so annoying and I end up spending more money on inks than needed! I read someone had similar problem, installed the 1290 M driver (via Vistas set drivers) but it didnt work for me!

Can't use compatible ink


Hi,
You need a chip-resetting tool.
Or use the printers software utilitie changing ink cartridge, some printers insist that you go into your printer software/program. to inform or communicate with the printer, that you are changing a Cartridge. then the printer, will move the printhead to the desired position, to remove the cartridge.
When the new cartridge is installed, the printer is set to look for new changes. make sure you,ve inserted the cartridge fully into it,s slot ( holder ) push until you get a slight click.
If you,ve disabled Status monitor, then your printer cannot output the Cartridge Status. ( empty-Full )
