#1 – Mr Gene McNeil:
Hello, the waste reset worked fine, but I would like to know if you have a solution for another issue.
Do you know of a way to stop the Epson Stylus R2000 from recognizing that the Ink is low, when you’re using a continuous inking system?
I’m using the printer for DTG printing and it continues to think I’m out of ink when it’s not. I have to stop and use the reset buttons. Do you have a solution?

#3 – Problem: Windows is sending print jobs to the wrong printer.
Solution: For some mysterious reason, Windows may select a new default printer–the one it automatically sends print jobs to. (This happened to me when I upgraded from Vista to Windows 7.) To fix this glitch in Windows 7, click Start (the Windows icon in the lower-left corner of the screen) and select Devices and Printers. Under Printers and Faxes, right-click the printer you want to make the default, and select Set as default printer. (PCworld)
#4 – Problem: My prints are too light, too spotty, or have horizontal lines.
Solution: You may have a clogged print head, a problem that can occur if you use an inkjet printer infrequently. Your printer’s utility program can clean out the dried ink, and print a test page for inspection. The step-by-step instructions on how to do this vary by printer. From the Windows 7 Start menu, click Devices and Printers or Control Panel, and look for your printer’s utility app (PCworld)
#5 – Problem: My printer says my ink cartridge is empty. I think it’s lying.
Solution: You may be right. Printer out-of-ink messages are notoriously unreliable. The good news: You can try various hacks to get around those ink cartridge controls. We’re not suggesting that all, or even some, of these reader tips will work with your printer, but they’re worth a try. One tip reveals how to reset ink cartridges for various HP printers. And a video on this page shows how to revive an “out of ink” Epson cartridge. If you’re feeling adventurous, check them out. (PCworld)
#6 – Problem: I use remanufactured or refilled ink cartridges, and my prints look awful.
Solution: We recommend sticking with the manufacturer’s ink. Third-party products may save you money up front, but the consequences can get ugly–literally–if the cheaper inks produce lower-quality prints.
Here’s another reason: wasted ink. The PC World Test Center has found that some cartridges leave more than 40 percent of their ink unused. The worst offenders, unfortunately, are third-party brands. Printer manufacturers may overcharge shamelessly for ink, but at least you know what you’re getting. (PCworld)
#7 – Problem: My printer claims it’s running out of ink, but I still can print. Should I?
Solution: You needn’t rush to replace cartridges if you get a low-ink warning. Nearly all recent printers have some sort of ink tank level indicator, and will issue warnings when your ink is low. The accuracy of these warnings varies widely among manufacturers and models. Sometimes you’ll get low-ink warnings well before the ink level is critically low.
The only way to determine if this is the case is by continuing to print beyond the warning and seeing how long it takes until output quality starts to degrade or the printer shuts down, forcing you to replace one or more cartridges. Then you’ll know if the warnings are legit or premature, and have a better idea of how long to wait until you really need to replace that ink. If you’re starting a large and important print job, though, you may want to err on the side of caution and change the relevant ink tank(s) anyway. (pcmag)
