Epson Stylus Photo R200 and R320 Status monitor in Vista

The Epson Stylus Photo R200 and R320 Status monitor programs are not available in Vista. Epson does not offer a solution that I know of. Do you have any information on how to monitor the ink levels with these printers?

Thanks for your help. Jack Spence

For the Epson R200 here's how I got it to work with Vista Business 32bit ...

#1 Disable AV software

#2 Open the CD for the printer software

#3 Find the launcher, right-click it and select Properties, then select the Compatibility tab

#4 Choose XP SP2 compatibility mode and Run As Administrator, then click OK.

#5 Double-click the launcher to start the program, select Custom then then choose only the Driver and Status Monitor applications.

Worked for me, hopefully will do too for you. :o)

When you first turn your printer on, the LCD screen on the epson R320 gives a list of options. If you press the down arrow button, at the end of the options is the list of your inks with their levels. The one that is low or out is flashing. The ink names are abbreviated. This bypasses the Vista problem because you won't have to rely on your computer at all!

I was able to install the original XP status monitor from the CD, onto Windows Vista Home Premium.

On the install cd, you need to open the 'STM3' folder under whatever language you are installing, 'English' in my case. There are several .exe files in that folder:

E_S1LAC2.EXE
E_SCHK02.EXE
E_SIINS2.EXE
E_SPSU02.EXE
STMSETUP.EXE
For each of these, right click on the file, and choose 'Properties'. Under the 'Compaitbility' tab, choose 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' - Windows XP (Service Pack 2).

Then run the 'STMSETUP.EXE' file, and it should install properly, and work. Although I cannot guarantee that it will work on your system, or that it will not have any negative effects on your computer.

So far, I have not had any trouble with it.

Hi My Epson Stylus R200 print is nearly unreadable. The status monitor says status is OK and the nozzle check is fine


Ensure the nozzle check has 6 colours if it doesn't you will need to try head cleaning. you may also need to align the print head. All this can be found in the same place as the option for nozzle check.

If that is ok try a different paper type, ensure you are using relativly fresh ink.

Epson stylus photo R200 status monitor in Windows 7 is'nt highlighted ink is low can't tell which ones


Uninstall the current driver and Status Monitor, once uninstalled connect and power the printer on to install the Windows 7 In box driver. If that does not work then you can tell which cartridges need replacing using the printer itself. Lift the lid and press the red ink button once. The carriage will move to the left and stop by a pointer. This will point to the cartridge that needs replacing. Repeat until it is in the change and then change the indicated cartridge/s and then press again to complete the change.

HOW TO INSTALL MY EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R200 I DONT HAVE THE DISK OR CD AND I HAVE WINDOWS VISTA


Try visiting Epson website...look for support link for drivers...then find your printer and operating system...download drivers and install....install program should provide directions..generally it will direct you to make sure printer cable is not connected to pc until install program tells you to do so. You can also do a google search for "epson stylus photo r200 drivers for vista", chances are you'll find a site from the results...good luck
