Fix Epson® Printer Issues
How to set up Epson series printers?
You can set up the Epson series printers easily in the system. For this, you need to plug in the cord as well as power adapter into the printer and the surge protector. You can then check if the printer is working by turning the printer and looking for power light. Next step is to load the new ink cartridge in the cartridge bay and fill the paper tray. Next step is to turn off the printer and load associate drivers and software in the computer. You can now restart the system and plug in the USB cable of the printer to appropriate port of the system. The printer can be automatically identified by the system. You can now try printing a test page and the printer is thus ready to work. You can maintain the compatibility of printer with the Operating System with installing compatible drivers and software in the system. Incompatible drivers might cause issues while accessing the printer. You can refer the progress meter window to remove these issues. You need to then follow on-screen steps to fix the problem. If you get "Not Enough Memory" message from the printer driver, you can try fixing it with reducing the RAM allocation to your application.
There are some steps to use and maintain the productivity of the Epson series printers:
- Use the EPSON Spool manager
- Optimize Driver Settings
- Set the Paper Configuration
Use the EPSON Spool manager
You can make use of the Spool Manager. The Spool Manager of the Epson printer is much similar to the Printer manager of the Windows OS. If the printer receives more than one print at a time, the spool can hold the print order. This is done in the order the printing jobs are received. As the print job reaches the top edge of the Spool Manager, the job is sent to the printer device. You can view the print status information from the Spool Manager. Thus, you can remove unwanted printing jobs or resume some jobs to reduce the time wasted due to conflicts between printing jobs.
Optimize Driver Settings
The initial steps to maintain the Epson printer productivity is to optimize the settings of printer driver. You may be using the printer for printing critical documents including reference and e-mails or Internet pages. In this situation, you can set the driver settings to print in black and white mode or in draft mode. You can maximize paper and ink usage with printing multiple pages on a single sheet. You can print in two or more pages in usual cases. If you are using it for presentation slides, then you can print up to four pages in a sheet. You can set the word processor to print on both sides of paper.
You can set the paper configuration of the Epson series printer to maintain its productivity. You can check the printer set-up to ensure that the default paper size is set correctly. It is good to set the paper size of the printing properties shorter as well as wider like 8 x 11-inch letter size. You can also try decreasing the line spacing, font size as well as default print margins of the Epson printer. This is needed to accommodate more text in a single page. You can set all these by selecting the 'Printers and Faxes' section of 'Control Panel' of the system.
