Hi, welcome to FixYa.

Usually, most printer driver need to be installed first BEFORE plugging the printer itself to the computer. Are you sure you have installed the driver before plug the printer? Or perhaps you do the otherwise?

If you installed the driver after plug in the printer, you must remove the driver first, unplug the printer then reinstall the driver and follow the instruction on the installation.

Epson how to install


Are you running Windows or AppleMac If so:

1. Install the programs off the CD, which I assume came with the printer.

2. No CD... Go to www.epson.com or .co.uk , click on SUPPORT/printers, choose your printer and operating system and install the neccessary drivers

If you are using the BEST O/S on the planet...LINUX:

Click on SYSTEM/ADMINISTRATION/PRINTERS AND + ADD (A PRINTER).

Printer driver


Http://www.driveridentifier.com/

I highly recomend you this freeware software since i'm pretty sure it can get you most of the drivers. However, in order for this tool to find the drivers you're looking for, you have to run it in the computer you need the drivers for.

My computor does not recognise my scanner


Hi

Pls check for updated driver for scanner on support.epson.com, because i believe that this printer doesn't have a wireless scanner server so the scanner will not work wirelessly.

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
