Well, it looks like I am about to join the multitude of other voices who just discovered the "ink problem". First off, I ran out after several months even though I use my printer like once a week. And the printer simply locked up, not letting me continue to print regardless of the ink level. I'm sorry, but if I say print, you print; I don't care if I get some faded or near invisible printout, I don't need dark ink for directions to cousin Jenny's baby shower. Unable to refill the ink at local Walgreens, I bit the bullet and dropped 16 dollars for a new black inch cartridge, plugged it in, and the printer still didn't print. It was out of cyan ink. DID I EVEN PRINT IN COLOR??? I spent a good part of twenty minutes while my four year old complained of interrupting her webkinz session, looking for an option to print in black and white only. The result...nothing, it still wouldn't print. It won't print in Black and White because I didn't have the color Cyan (say what???). Now I need to purchase the other three colors (somehow, despite never printing in color, I am less then 25% on all three colors). I got this printer for free with a new computer I purchased, and I made the fateful mistake of selling off my old HP printer for $10 at a garage sale. Thought it was a deal at the time, now I am thoroughly regretting it.
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!! I will never consider Epson again.
UPDATE: I did eventually purchase the other three ink cartridges (something of the tune of 40 dollars or so). This got the printer working again for a while until, low and behold, I began running out of color ink AGAIN. this time I KNOW I never printed in color. I was spared making that decision though as with in a few days the printer started malfunctioning, printing gibberish for no known cause. I went to Walmart and bought a 30 dollar Lexmark printer, and it is doing just fine.
I replaced my black ink catridge a few days ago and have only printed about ~50 pages of black text. The paper jams, and then suddenly it says my black ink catridge is empty and needs to be replaced. There is NO manual override. It does NOT allow you print unless you replace the black ink catridge! This is so frustrating, since I know it is not used up, and even the last page before the paper jam was perfectly printed!
The troubleshooting guide on the Epson site for this printer also will not load. I always bought the cheapest printers, and just when I spring for an all-in-one, it disappoints me.
On the plus side, the print quality is great, and there are a lot of features. However, on the minus side, if you run out of black ink, you are STUCK. You cannot do anything (not even clean nozzles of print heads). Also, given my experience, one paper jam can cause your printer to suddenly decide you're out of ink. If I could still return this printer, I would, and instead I'd just buy a cheap, regular printer with no bells and whistles to break.
However, I made the big mistake of buying this when I print a number of documents each day, and over 99% of my printing is b&w. Having to continually replace color cartridges in order to use the black ink is clearly a device to get the purchaser to spend money on something that is literally being thrown away. According to the documentation, the rationale for using color ink when not printing in color is that it keeps the print heads clean. I am dubious. My first assumption, when using this printer, was that it must be creating "black" by mixing all the colors together; the cartridges were emptying so fast. And I thought I was being clever by finding and clicking on the "Print Black Only" option. But it made no difference.
My plan is to continue using this "printer" as a scanner and for my kids to occasionally print school projects in color. When I buy my next set of ink cartridges (probably tomorrow), I'll be also picking up an HP deskjet of some kind, because I know they make printers that have no problem printing in B&W with an empty color cartridge.
Finally, after some searching on Google, I figured out this was a problem with the Epson Scan software and it has affected many users of Windows Vista who have bought many different Epson scanners/all-in-ones, see [...]. The problem is that in order to install its driver, Epson Scan requires your operating system to have the system file usbscan.sys, which used to be on pre-Vista versions of Windows but is not included with Windows Vista. Epson Scan was really designed for pre-Vista versions of Windows. They did not take into account the fact that usbscan.sys is not part of Windows Vista.
Also, one cannot readily copy this file (assuming you can get a copy of it, I did from an older computer) into the necessary driver subfolders in the Windows system32 folder due to access restrictions.
Epson should not be selling Epson Scan as compatible with Windows Vista, it is not.Read more ›
