How can i check which ink are out


Your printer should have come with a disk. This disk would have installed the necessary program that runs printing jobs, as well as keeps track of the ink level. Locate this program on your computer (may be under All Programs, Accessories under the Start Menu).
If not, Go into the Control Panel: (see below)

Above, you see "Hardware and Sound"; and below that shows "View Devices and Printers. Click on this. It will then bring you into the below dialogue box, of which shows any and all printers currently installed and which are being used. (see below)

Once you have located your printer here - (name etc). Go into your Start Menu: In the Search Box at the bottom type "programs"; look for the words "show which programs are installed on your computer", should be the fourth in the list. Below is what the list will look like. Find your printer here to ensure it's installed.

Once you have determined it's installed, you need to locate the printer program in your file system. Once you retrieve this, click it to open it. The program should allow you to view the ink levels. With most printers, when ink is low it will automatically open a dialogue box showing the ink levels for each cartridge. If you're printer is not equipped with this feature, then the only way to know if any need changed is when printing a document, and any color is not present.
I apologize for such a long response, as I wanted you to know how to access these files. If you are printing, and all colors appear to be present, without fading, or "blotchy" spots, then your cartridges are still good. You should be able to do a print test (calibration or alignment test) to determine this as well.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Epson DX4850 problem getting ink levels to highlight using Vista


Checking the level of ink in an Epson printer can be done without having to remove the ink cartridges. This method works on black and white as well as color inkjet printers. Checking the level of ink can help you plan ahead when buying new cartridges
Instructions:
  • Install the Epson StatusMonitor software. This program comes on the CD included with the printer. It can also be downloaded from the Epson Web site. or from http://download.cnet.com/Epson-Status-Monitor-2/3000-2116_4-10024738.html
  • Open the Epson StatusMonitor program in any application (such as word processing, spreadsheets or Web browsers) that allows you to print. Click on the "File" menu tab in the control bar of the application
  • Select print or page setup from the "File" menu. A dialog box will open. In that box, click on the "StatusMonitor" icon, which will open the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box. Also, you can click on the "Utility" icon and then the "Epson StatusMonitor" button from the "Utility" dialog box.
  • Click on the "Update" button to update the display (if you do not think these levels are accurate) when the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box displays the relative ink levels for each cartridge in the printer.
  • Go back to the "Print" dialog box to change the way that the StatusMonitor utility monitors your printer and ink levels. Click on the "Utility" button again.
  • Click on the "Configuration" button in the "Utility" dialog box. The open "Configuration" dialog box will let you adjust settings such as ink level warnings and ink level monitoring before each printing.

Epson c60 printer not compatable with windows vista need a driver but have no idea where to download it


The driver for the Epson C60 printer is included with Vista - all you need to do is connect the printer to the computer with Vista running and turn it on. If you have already done this and the printer does not work properly (but see the info about the Status Monitor below), turn the printer off, uninstall the printer using the Control Panel-Programs and Features-Epson Printer Software, then reboot the computer. Once Vista is running, turn the printer on and it should then install OK.

HOWEVER, the printer Status Monitor (SM) is not included in this process and if you try to install the XP version of the SM, it will not work. Epson appears to have no intention of remedying this problem. This means you have no means of monitoring your ink levels, nor of changing the cartridges, cleaning the heads etc via the computer, although some of these tasks can be carried out via the printer control panel (see your hand book on how to do this).

A good solution is to use the free SSC utility as your SM - download from:

http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Install it, and double click the ssc printer icon in the bottom right corner (System Tray). Choose Configuration and set your printer type (C60), then close the ssc window. Now right click the ssc icon in the sytem tray and choose the SM function you wish to use.

If you have any further queries on this, please post a new comment.

Reset Ink levels for canon mx310


I've heard that with canon there is a way around the ink-level chip monitoring on the cartridge by doing the following:
  1. Power off printer
  2. Hold RESUME button then press and hold POWER, the beeper will sound once.
  3. Hold POWER and release RESUME
  4. Press RESUME twice
  5. Release POWER button
  6. When the indicator lights steady, press RESUME three(3) times. The indicator should be orange.
  7. Press POWER to set data

Epson C60 Stylus Status Monitor Does Not Work On Windows Vista


-As the driver is part of Windows Vista, there is no Status Monitor available for your printer. Some printers may have an INK LEVELS options included as part of the resident driver. Otherwise, the printer does have its own indicators. The RED error light will flash when the printer is low on ink and go solid when it is out.

-If the ink levels do not appear, click GET INK LEVELS from the MAIN tab of the printer driver. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer as the Ink Levels does rely on full bidirectional communication.
