I cannot find any Windows 10 driver for this printer. The Epson (Singapore) support page lists them up to Windows 8.1.

Try them and see if they work for you. As the TX121 is a GDI printer (relying on the Windows graphics engine to convert a page into dots on the paper) it relies critically on the right version of the Operating System, so it most likely will not work. However, you don't risk anything in trying.

this is a safe and direct link to Epson Support page and Windows 10 drivers, just select your Windows platform correctly  (32bit) or (64bit) download and install.

Note that "epson-driver.com" is not an Epson company site - of course that does not necessarily imply that the driver won't work.

you can create backup or restore point first, then download and install the driver. if it didn't work on your system then you can  Restore Windows to the state it was before. it's worth trying.

This link is from Epson Indonesia:

Download Epson Easy Photo Print software from Indonesia link, if you want that Icon on your desktop.

if that didn't work then,

Uninstall driver from programs and features or device manager, restart and then install from my last link ( Indonesia ).

The link you gave in your comment 42053847 is the same as I gave in my first post - except that mine starts in Singapore. If you select Win 8.1 as the O/S you get to the screen you show. it lists Win10. However, when I tried it on my PC it says that the driver is not compatible with my operating system.

@Excellearner

If you're installing the full software package, it will tell you when to connect the printer. If you are installing the driver only (and if it runs on your PC), try connecting the printer first. The PC will tell you it is connected and try to find drivers. If prompted for the location, browse to the location of the decompressed driver files.

The error light on the printer indicates one of the ink cartridges is empty or missing. That is probably also why the printer is off-line. Check the ink cartridges are present and have enough ink in them.

From the photo this seems to be a very old printer (lots of dust on it). That may mean that the ink cartridges have dried out. When was this printer last used?

hdhondt, thank you. Below are my responses:


1. The error light on the printer indicates one of the ink cartridges is empty or missing - All the ink catridges have either dried up or empty.

2. Check the ink cartridges are present and have enough ink in them - I have replaced a new black catridge but not rest of the catridges.
Question1: Is it necessary that I replace it with new catridges for the the rest three.
Question 2: Is it necessary for me to peel both the plastic film covering on the catridge nozzles. (Please see picture- I have not peeled of the plastic film cover from the elevated nozzle opening)

3. From the photo this seems to be a very old printer (lots of dust on it) - Yes, when it was in use it did a good job and never gave any issues.

4. That may mean that the ink cartridges have dried out. - YEs

5. When was this printer last used? - Atleast a year ago.


Additional information: When i remove the USB cable connection and connect it back I do not hear any beep sound from my laptop which says the printer is recognised by the operating system.
However I do see it in the word document (Pic attached) which shows the printer is offline.

Kindly advise. Please help

Thank you

You will probably find that the printheads have dried out as well. Any inkjet that has not been used for a while has problems with that. I'm not sure you can get yours to work again. You may be able to recover it by removing the printheads and soaking the printing face in distilled water for a while and the running cleaning cycles. With dried-out printheads you may need more than one set of cartridges to get the heads working properly.

Your Word doc also says there is a communication error, so the printer may have other problems as well.

Re your questions:

1. Most printers will not work if any cartridge registers as empty, so you may have to replace all of them. Considering the above though, it may be cheaper to invest in a new printer.

2. Yes, any tape should be removed

Kindly guide how to execute the below:

Would you recommend the below could be an economical solution to begin with to test if all colours need to be there (min. quantity atleast) to bring the printer to online mode.

Kindly help.

Hi, the best decision is to take it to the printer repair shop. I would do that if I were in your situation.
Printer repair shops will not charge you if they are not able to fix the printer.
That was my suggestion.

@Ramin

The problem with that is that any repair will likely cost more than a new printer.

Why does the scanner not perform and it says it has connection problem?
Because the printer has a connection problem - whatever that is. See your Word doc. The printer and scanner share the USB connection.

My recommendation is to replace the printer. You can buy a replacement for as little as $50, from Epson and other manufacturers.

Thank you both a lot.

I have called India Epson Service Centre and they have asked me to visit a shop in my city Visakhapatnam, India.

I agree this is an old printer and barely used. I am trying to give it some value as I need the printer for atleast 6 months.

I have looked at HP laserjet printer and it is costing me 180USD.

I will git a last shot and then just dump this printer.

I will give my update once I am back from the shop.

Thank you
