    my printer has just stopped working after many years service, all the inks are full, but the display that show ink levels is shaded out. When I click for a nozzel check, the screen goes to busy (egg Timer) and just locks up.



    I have re-installed software, but no change.

I do not know which ink i have to replace!!!!


This link.

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=26322&prodoid=37368458&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows

will lead you to the site to download this driver. Printer Driver v5.5bAs

It says it has the ink monitoring program in it.

Best bet is to uninstall the printer from your computer and reinstall it with this new printer driver.

How to get Epson R300 stylus monitor to work in Vista


I have the same problem with my stylus C88. Epson never did provide Vista drivers so I have never found a way to get the Epson software to work with Vista. The print driver does work so you will be able to print but you'll have to clean the nozzle manually by pushing the button on the printer rather than using the Epson Monitor. Sorry.

Epson Stylus Photo R200 and R320 Status monitor in Vista


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.

Download the status monitor from the Epson web site if it is available for Vista. If you have 64bit Vista chances are it is not available.

Epson Stylus Photo R200 and R320 Status monitor in Vista


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)

R300 - quality terrible and no status monitor


If you're getting gaps in the nozzle checks and cleaning isn't resolving it, it is possible a nozzle is blocked with dried ink. You can get cleaning cartridges which contain a solvent that disolves the clogged ink.
I'll not suggest any brands, but talk to your local friendly computer shop, or do a search. Something like epson r300 cleaning cartridge should work.
When you say the status monitor is greyed out, is this on the computer or the printer? And I'd hope you're not using HP inks... It's an Epson printer ;) But on a serious note, I've not yet had any problems using non-Epson inks.

HTH,
Neil
