Re: hp3500 finding the volumes i have printed
Print a configuration page using the menu on the printer. Press the check button, then scroll down to the info menu, press check button, scroll down to configuration page, press the check button. The printer will print the page and give the page count for your printer. There is also a "supplies" info page under the same info menu that will give you the levels for each toner cartridge.

Unfortunately, No, there is no "quiet" mode available on these. Keep in mind that this is a high speed 62 page per minute laser printer. The faster printers get, the more noise they are likely to produce. Combined with the fact that these are very compact printers printing at a very fast speed, the case being plastic and there is basically no sound deadening material inside, these printers will produce more sound compared to a slower machine. I think these are expected to be used in high volume offices that have printer/copy rooms, or where noise is not much of an issue and they are isolated away from offices and users. There is really no easy and aesthetic way to quiet these in a small office environment that you've described without enclosing them in an acoustic enclosure (which reduces accessibility and potential cooling problems) or in a separate room.
You do not say which operating system you are using.
do not say if you are using original Epson branded or compatible generic brand
do not say if the printer is new and if this is your first cardtridge change,
the cartidges that come with the printer are low volume, starter cartridges.
The 2 types of cartridges have slightly different codes to distinguish them.
people prefer generic brand, compatible cartridges, which are generally cheaper
but can be of inferior quality and some can contain inferior quality ink.
Others prefer original Epson branded cartridges, which can be more expensive.
Epson printers can take both economy volume and high volume cartridges.
In Windows operating systems, generally:
Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson
PX700W icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge
Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print
Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." >
Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen
instructions> head cleaning >print test page.

The only way to try to avoid this is with trial and error. You can adjust the amount of ink printed on the disk and the drying time in the software options but I can't guarantee you will be happy with the results. If adjusting the ink volume the printed image could become to lighter but it would dry faster. You will have to test some the settings and see the results for yourself.
Here's the steps from the manual to make the modifications:
Adjust the Ink Volume Used
This functionality allows you to adjust the amount of ink that is used.
1. Navigate to Printing Preferences. (see below if unsure where to find)
2. Select the Basics tab.
3. Select Advanced Features. The Advanced Features window opens.
4. Move the Ink Volume and Dry Time sliders to increase or decrease the ink volume or dry time.
- Important! Do not select the Low Memory checkbox unless your PC does not have enough memory or
disk space to complete the print job you have requested.
5. Select OK. The Advanced Features window closes.
6. Select OK. The Preferences window closes
1. Access printing preferences.
In Windows 2000, navigate: Start > Settings > Printers.
In Windows XP, navigate: Start > Printers and Faxes.
2. Right-click on Disc Color Printer 480i and select Printing Preferences from the dropdown menu. The Disc
Color Printer 480i Printing Preferences window opens.
after printing such a number of pages,the printer runs out of ink in the catrige.just replace the black catrige and your device is good to go again.its the one located at the top and has a black ribbon.
amazingly the system diagnosis may not be indicating that the device is out of powder due to heat produced during mass print jobs and may even take upto a week to start troubleshooting
go to the properties of the driver and click on printing preferences and click on authentication/account track and the user name and password that you use to make a copy will have to be enter in this area to to print
very easy, press and hold the orange stop/clear button for 5 seconds. you'll see the display will first show ---, then 3 number, and another 3 numbers. this is your copy counter. if you would like to print this, follow the procedure above but as soon as the --- is shown on the display, press the green start button
The double sided printing option relies on Status monitor working correctly. If information cannot travel from the printer to the computer, the option will be greyed out.
Make sure you have a direct connection to the computer without any hubs. If that doesn't work, try the following.
1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS 2. Right click on your Epson printer name, and click CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS. 3. Confirm cancelling all documents. 4. Right click on the Printer again, and select DELETE.
1) Click on START, SETTINGS and CONTROL PANEL. 2) Double click on the SYSTEM folder and select the Device Manager tab. 3) Click on the "+" for "Universal Serial Bus Controller" 4) Right click on "USB Printing Support" and select "Uninstall" and confirm it 5) Disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.
