The printer can only print as fast as the information is "spooled" to it from your computer. If the computer is old, slow or just plain busy, the print speed can be affected.

Look in the printer driver/spooler settings to make sure things 'begin printing after last page is spooled' are set correctly.

You can also remove the printer from your printers list and download the driver from the Epson web site. Reinstalling with the new driver may help if the old driver has been affected in some way.

My epson office tx600fw printer is very slow since I start using Windows 8.1 how can I restore its original speed


Two reasons could have caused this.
Try seeing if there is an updated driver for Windows 8.1
If this doesn't work try looking at the printer settings to see if you are printing at a higher quality than you were before. This would cause printing to slow down and for the printer to use up more ink.

    How do I know WHICH of the ink cartridges is out?


    I found this on the Epson Web Site. If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.
    You can download the Reference Guide with pictures and all.

    http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/r220__/r220__rf/index.htm

    Windows
    You can check the amount of ink remaining in the ink cartridges using EPSON Status Monitor 3 or the progress meter. Refer to the sections below for details.
    EPSON Status Monitor 3 Access EPSON Status Monitor 3 in one of the following ways.
    • Double-click the printer-shaped shortcut icon on your Windows taskbar. To add a shortcut icon to the taskbar, see the section below.
      font26.gif See Monitoring Preferences
    • Open the printer software, click the Maintenance tab, then click the EPSON Status Monitor 3 button.
    A graphic displays the remaining amount of ink.

    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.

    Pls rate me. Thanks and Good Luck.....

    Epson stylus 1400 printer


    What kind of Port is the printer hooked up to? Computer should have usb port to printer. You also may be printing at 2800 dpi instead of the lesser quality with very little change in picture slower speed. Check those things and let me know if you've resolved the issue.

    Not install for windows vista


    In any Windows environment, the printer itself becomes a dummy terminal and all changes to the printer will be over-ridden by the application or the operating system.

    Windows Vista should automatically detect and install devices attached to the computer. Simply connect the printer to your computer and power it on.

    If the driver does not automatically install, you can follow the steps below to install a resident driver which is part of Windows Vista. The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.

    1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
    2. Click the ADD PRINTER button. If you do not see ADD PRINTER, right-click in the PRINTERS window and select ADD PRINTER from the menu.
    3. The ADD PRINTER wizard window will appear select Add a Local Printer.
    4. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
    5. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturers and your printer model under Printers.
    6. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
    7. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
    8. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.

    *NOTE: Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.

    To make adjustments to the output quality and speed in Windows Vista, please do the following:

    1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, and PRINTERS.
    2. Right click on the printer icon, and choose PRINTER PREFERENCES.
    3. Click on the ADVANCED button in the bottom right corner.
    4. Click on the GRAPHICS option and click the down arrow.
    5. Choose the lowest number to drop your resolution and pick up your speed.
    6. Click on PRINT FEATURES and choose the option HIGH SPEED ON.
    7. Click OK to apply the changes.
    8. Once again right click on the icon for your printer, and choose the PROPERTIES tab.
    9. Click on the ADVANCED tab and click on the button called PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER.
    10. Click APPLY (if applicable) and/or click OK to apply the changes.

    The driver you are using is a graphics driver and may not have the adequate speed for your purposes. In Windows VISTA there are more basic drivers which respond better to custom page sizes and speed adjustments. Windows also has a driver called GENERIC TEXT ONLY which is made as a universal driver for all printers just for speed. To add in either of these drivers please do the following:

    1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
    2. In the left hand column choose the option ADD PRINTER. The ADD PRINTER WIZARD comes up, click on NEXT.
    3. Select Add a Local Printer.
    4. Click on NEXT.
    5. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
    6. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturer. Please use the guide below to select an appropriate Emulation driver. If you wanted to install the Windows universal driver, choose GENERIC under Manufacturer and choose TEXT ONLY, click NEXT.

    EPSON LQ SERIES (136): Used for LQ wide carriage printers
    EPSON LQ SERIES (80): Used for LQ narrow carriage printers

    EPSON LX SERIES (136): Used for LX wide carriage printers
    EPSON LX SERIES (80): Used for LX narrow carriage printers

    EPSON FX SERIES (136): Used for FX wide carriage printers
    EPSON FX SERIES (80): Used for FX narrow carriage printers

    7. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
    8. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
    9. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.

    *NOTE: Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.
