Everytime I hit print I get a box saying Epson Status Monitor 3 Could not find specified file.


Go to the start menu and look at your programs under Epson and uninstall the status monitor 3 you don't need it to print. If it's not there try to find it in the uninstall programs under the control panel. If you get rid of it your printer should still print fine you just won't get all the messages from it. You can still do everything you need from the front panel. Just download the user manual from Epson.com You can still download the status monitor 3 from Epson if you really need it, but it may not work because of the previous installation.

Status Monitor isn't hihglighted so I can't check


This can only be done by getting a new status monitor software . Follow my instructions:- STEP 1 - Install the Epson StatusMonitor software. This program comes on the CD included with the printer. It can also be downloaded from the Epson Web site ( http://download.cnet.com/Epson-Status-Monitor-2/3000-2116_4-10024738.html ).
STEP 2 - Open the Epson StatusMonitor program in any application (such as wordprocessingmag-glass_10x10.gif, spreadsheets or Web browsers) that allows you to print. Click on the "File" menu tab in the control bar of the application.
STEP 3 - Select print or page setup from the "File" menu. A dialog box will open. In that box, click on the "StatusMonitor" icon, which will open the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box. Also, you can click on the "Utility" icon and then the "Epson StatusMonitor" button from the "Utility" dialog box.
STEP 4 - Click on the "Update" button to update the display (if you do not think these levels are accurate) when the "Epson StatusMonitor" dialog box displays the relative ink levels for each cartridge in the printer.
STEP 5 - Go back to the "Print" dialog box to change the way that the StatusMonitor utility monitors your printer and ink levels. Click on the "Utility" button again.
STEP 6 - Click on the "Configuration" button in the "Utility" dialog box. The open "Configuration" dialog box will let you adjust settings such as ink level warnings and ink level monitoring before each printing.

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.

Here is a workaround:

Another thing to try if it STILL doesn't work is
Printer&Faxes>>Properties>>Advanced>>"Print Directly to Printer"

Just remember to restart after you try both of these. The Status Monitor in it's current for (at least for me) simply sucks.
