Hi jill,
Printers can set default to what properties you would like to chose. If you want to default it just click your printer. If it is not found in the desktop try to find it by clicking start menu ,then control panel ,then printers and faxes. select your printer and right click the icon. go to preferences. look for the properties. select the color to default it to greystyle. click apply. then try to print. So that you can still go back to color mode just go to the printer settings by selecting properties to choose what color you desired for the out put wether colored or black.

Please post or rate this solution so that I can give you more detailed info on troubleshooting your printer.

You could go into printer settings through start then select printer (Epson) program choose printer settings. Then change the default to black only or you can simply reinstall the printer software and by default will allow to print in black. This is if your are confused on how to use the printer settings

Please advise instructions for connecting my epson stylus PHOTO 830U to my laptop. No CD available. Thank you. Lee


Digging around Epson (and leading to Epson Australia -- where you located?) forwards to a link at Microsoft that lists the Epson printers whose drivers are already bundled with XP and other MS operating systems.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;293378

If you're using Win7 (RC or Beta) you may want to try the Vista or other drivers, but the printer may be too old.

Physically, you just need to have your laptop running, plug in the printer power, turn it on, then plug the printer into the laptop via the USB cable. The drivers should install automatically.

Epson 830u Printer Red light stays on even with new ink


I realised that I had to replace both the ink cartridges even though I only wanted to replace the black for it to work. Once I replaced both the black and colour cartridge the red light went off. Thanks

Printing text is all I do and have a new black cartridge in


hi,
one way to start to start the reset process is to unplug the two cords from the back ot the printer, the power and the other one, wait 60 seconds, and plug them back in. Then click on ...file....page setup....printer....properties...from the menus on your browser. It is in that last menu where you can setup whether to print in color or just black and white. Change your setting. Click done and exit. Try to print some thing. I hope this helps.

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing

Epson 830u printer


Many problems about printer heads but most common causes are it was not installed properly in the printer. Try to check if the printer is on when you get the cartridges. it will damaged the printer if taken forcibly.
Here are some suggestions to do:

1. Check your complete set of ink. I it is filled with the color indicated.
2. if you brought a new one it must be sealed.
3. If tampered or the package is open, it may have been used by somebody.
4. Install the printer cartridges properly using the guide/ user's manual so that cartridges are taken cared off.
5. When cleaning the print heads do not put much force because print heads are sensitive. Colors from yellow, magenta, cyan and black are very small so take care of cleaning. I possible use tissue because it absorbs well without blocking the jet pin of the print heads.
6. When new settings are applied you must restart the PC so that new settings will take effect.
Thanks
