Epson Color 800 Change Ink Utility
Posted on 2002-04-25
This one has been bugging me for a time...my Epson Color Sylus 800 won't let me change Ink cartridge manually.
The printer is "so clever" that you can't manually select change ink unless the printer "thinks" that it needs it (i.e. the ink replacement light flashes).
However, I how do you change the ink if it does need to be changed?
There is no software solution in the driver. Some drivers I have seen allow you to change the ink via software, but not with the latest driver from Epson.
So, the question is...does anyone know of a software solution out there that can do this?
Or, is there a combination of hardware (pressing buttons in some weird fashion) that will force an ink replacement.
Of course, the printer is so clever that it hides the ink wells when the power is Off.
