Q: Epson WF 2530 - Says "paper out" every time i try to print.

Every time i try to print something with my Epson WF 2530, its says "paper out or loaded incorrectly" even when there is plenty of paper. there is no jam and when i try to print, the paper just shoots out blank. its been working fine for a long time and just suddenly started this between printings yesterday.
Is there any sort of reset?

Preferred Solution: Epson WF 2530 - Says "paper out" every time i try to print.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Every time I try to print anything, my WF-2530 feeds a sheet through and reports paper out. The unit has seen little use and has never had a paper jam. I have carefully loaded only a few sheets of regular 20 lb paper and it does it every time. I have done the same with some Kodak photo paper for inkjet and gotten the same results. It simply does not detect that there is paper loaded.

I have tried resetting the unit, powering off then on, disconnecting and reconnecting the power cord. Nothing causes it to recognize that paper is loaded after it feeds the first sheet through. Press the 'OK' button and it will feed another sheet and continue to report 'paper out'.

I don't want to replace such a lightly used printer. If I can correct whatever is wrong with the paper sensor it would be a blessing. Help!

Just updated the drivers on my Epson Artisan 700. When I use Photoshop CS3 and print it works fine, however, without changing any settings, if i print to a paper that is thicker, the printer acts like it is printing, but when it comes out, nothing is on it. After printing about 10 times last night, I got only 2 that came out with anything. However, everytime I put in regular paper, it prints fine. Any ideas?

I've been printing half letter paper (8.5x5.5) with my Epson Stylus CX7800, and I have all of the settings correct, paper type, paper size and such (and the paper tray holder thing) but when it comes to printing, it keeps saying "paper jam" even If I take the stack of 12 sheets out, and put one in, I get paper jam. Any tips?

Did you ever consider you might have a paper jam? You have to look down in the works of the printer. There is often a little shard of paper jamming something.

I just recently just bought a black ink cartirage but, it just prints out colored pages. Also, when i run a nozzle check, it just prints out the colored parts,not the black ink part. If anyone could help me out i'd greatly appreciate it.

THank you!

Could you have maybe not inserted the cartridge correctly or securely so that you printer can recognize its there. Also, double check to make sure your cartridge is the right number to be compatible with your printer.

There is a Lanier LD117 Printer recently installed in the office, which is connected to the network, to be used by the two computers in the office (both are Windows 7 equipped). However, the printer shows "offline" on the computers when the printer
is on.
Secondly, the printer says there is a paper type/size mismatch. After changing the printer (and the computer) settings to the correct ones, the printer still says its mismatched. And the confusing thing is if you select FormFeed manually on the printer,
the documents that are waiting will print anyways, even though it says it cant and even though the computers say its offline.

How can I reset the system so the documents will print automatically upon command via the two computers?

Thanks!

Hey everyone,

Then I am hitting the https://login.microsoftonline.com/<tenant>.onmicrosoft.com/oauth2/token?Content-Type=application/x-www-form-urlencoded end

have asked me to post on these forms. Can someone please help me with this? I am not able to move forward because the error is pretty generic and doesn't give any additional details.

XP Home (installed SP2 recently, which MIGHT have something to do with this?).

Just saved two word docs and a bmp file, all separately. All three times I saw that a new location has been added to the Save As drop-down menu. It didn't open to My Documents folder but was in the general folder list of the whole computer. The location was called "FTP File Locations." It's never appeared on the Save As menu before. This made me think of the file/print sharing control, which is now located in the Windows Firewall, but I don't use that Firewall, I turned it off to use Norton. What was FTP Locations? And is there any way to disable file/print sharing without using the Windows Firewall? (These may be the same thing, I don't know.) Also, in Network Connections, I thought I'd find file/print sharing control there, but now XP wants me to run a whole Network Wizard thing..I'm afraid I'll somehow set up a network instead! or enable all kinds of things..I don't want to create a disaster here.

(My son installed an FTP program months ago for work he was doing, but the program was removed. I just searched for it, it's definitely gone.)

This is a stand-alone, non-networked home computer.

P.S. I saved another Word doc and now it's back to opening to My Documents folder as usual..now I can't find the FTP Locations anywhere.

What should I do? If I simply create a new folder, and label it “Screenshots,” will do that do the trick?  Or is there a more complicated fix?

A:No "ScreenShots" Folder in Pictures To Hold " Print Screen" Images!

Is it just saving the screenshots somewhere else or is it just not taking screenshots at all? Don't know about your specific system, but on my Win 10 lappy, the screen blinks (dims) when the screenshot is taken.  
Did you look in all the subfolders in Pictures to see if Screenshots folder is buried in one of them?
Win 10 also has a Snipping Tool which will allow you to put a box around the part of the screen you want to capture and then you can save it wherever you want. Maybe that's easier, and you can pin the Snipping Tool to the Start menu so it's easy to find.

Opera 7.50 -- Print preview simply provides no response (sometimes shuts down). Straight print attempt = shutdown w/error msg ""has encountered a problem and needs to close"

Notepad -- "Handle is invalid."

IE 6.00 -- Print preview shows, but attempt to print leads to msg "There was an internal error."

I have someone who works from home to connect to an office computer to access a database. Now, she wants to print out of her printer from home from the program she is using. She connects via VNC on a dial-up. Now the only thing I had in mind was to some how network her printer to be available to an outside source from home and add it as a shared printer on the office computer. Is this possible with a dial-ip and also not being on the same network? I wonder if I could do it through HTTP or something similiar?

That is one of the limitations of VNC. You can't print to a local printer.

I don't know whether to be worried about this latest development (most bothersome is laptop keeps crashing and fails to complete scheduled AVG test).

Today I switched on and the normal icons for the C drive and extra hard drive that Secon Copy uses have been replaced by what looks like a little red paper aeroplane

Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this and whether it is likely to be something sinister?

***********************

PLEASE pardon my extreme dimness. I have just checked programs to add or remove and it seems that the red icon is associated with the Glidepoint driver for the touchpad on my extra, ergonomic keyboard. Though I have been using this for months the icon-swap seems to have occurred since I unplugged the keyboard then re-plugged it in.

Ah well - this might help some other dimbo like me

I've always heard and read that a paper thin layer is best but since the paste is really only there to fill microscopic pits and imperfections, wouldn't merely smearing a tiny bit on with a platic bag around your finger be even better? Wouldn't this be closer to having true contact between the cpu and the heatsink? Paper thin almost seems too thick.

Also, are antec silver and arctic silver basically the same or is arctic better? I had some of both from my last upgrade a few years ago but i was only able to find the antec.
 

A:Thermal paste question: Is "paper thin" actually thicker than necessary?

Paper thin is fine, not to little, and not to much. I use, and most people would probably reccomend using artic silver.

Is the time to "Upgrade from vista to 7 supposed to be wayyy longer then it would to do jsut a clean install? (For example, hanging at 18% for a while while installing during upgrade)

(posting this since i cant get any replies to a previous topic)

A:Install time difference between "Upgrade" and "Custom"

The upgrade process will always be longer, and sometimes considerably. The upgrade process has to move/relocate previous files and keep certain registry entries based on software already installed. Did the upgrade eventually complete? (it's a silly question but you could be dual booting). If not then it could be a bad burn and your systems is taking it's time trying to read the install files from the DVD.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:

How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?

My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.

After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper&#8217;s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?

A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more

A:"Print" goes to straight to "Save As".....

I would say that your default printer has changed somehow. It should be an easy fix.
What operating system are you using?

If your using Vista:
Start > Control Panel > Under Hardware and Sound, select Printer > Right Click on the printer you want to use and press "Set as Default Printer".

If your using XP:
Start > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes > Right Click on the Printer > Set as Default Printer.

That should work for you, If you have any problems or that didn't solve the problem, or I haven't covered the right Operating System, just ask.

I've cleaned out a couple of nasties with Adaware, although i've not seen much change - still getting the same "VIRUS ALERT!" and popups. Still, I thought it best to update the log:

Hi, I've repeatedly attempted this, but always get

An error occurred during setup. Restart your computer, then run setup again.

This is an all too typical message you can find associated with many Epson products.

I've tried:
Clean boot
Safe mode (install enabled)
Using an Epson removal tool I finally obtained after my 5th chat with Epson.
An Epson fix deleting temp folder and looking for setup.exe that never appeared.
On my 4th chat I was advised to consult Microsoft.
Manually removing all Epson folders and registry entries I can find.
Disabling firewall and AV

The same CD installed ok on my 6 year-old laptop (both run Windows x64).

I've found a couple of other fixes found by someone looking at the log file.
I've run SFC /Scannow - ok

At best, the scanner is recognised as being connected when plugged in, and appears with a yellow trangle under 'Other Devices' in Device Manager

Any ideas welcome - I'd like to use my new scanner
Thanks

A:Epson V550 driver installation "An error occurred during setup"

Hi, I've found a solution, albeit a tad obscure. Short story:
1. Install the driver normally, noting it fails, and the device is recognised when plugged in and appears in Device Manager under 'Other devices' with a yellow triangle.
2. There right click the device, update driver and browse to the CD used to install the driver initially, and to the driver folder.
Let the update run.

The scanner should now be installed.

From:
http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/w...?page=2&auth=1

which offers another approach too.

There are quite a few reports of Epson driver installations (various devices) failing with this message. Epson chat eventually referred me to Microsoft.... saying the original message was a Windows error.

Hello,

I bought the Epson Perfection V39 recently, but I haven't been able to get the software to work, or even get it to scan anything. I have installed everything on the disc provided, downloaded the Epson drivers online and unistalled/reinstalled but whenever I attempt to scan via the 'Epson Scan' application, I get this message "Cannot find necessary files. Please re-install the software"

I'm using Windows 10. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have a BIIIIIIG problem with my Epson DX5050. The message "Unknown Device" is received when I plug the device in the laptop through the USB port. I tried every single method described on this forum (and other). I don't know what else to do.

The device appears as an Unknown Device in the Device manager no matter what I do (printer on, printer off cable plugged, unplugged).

I really don't know what to do. PLS help.

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 with an AMD processor and 2 USB ports both of witch are working with other devices.

I didn't find the latest drivers for the motherboard (on the official web site) as was suggested by an user (All may USB items under "Universal Serial Bus Controllers" are standard after i Installed everything on the DVD that came with the Laptop).

Do you guys think it could be the cable? (the cable is brand new)

I need your advice badly or this thing is out the window

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have tried every google search string that I can think of, and found... Read more

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hello,

I recently did a reformat and reinstall of Windows XP MCE. and Ubuntu. Each OS is on its own hard drive. I believe I have applied all updates for XP. My problem is a minor one. Some of my icons appear on a "piece of paper" about half the size of normal icons. It's merely a cosmetic problem as the necessary programs will still open up the files. I have attached a pic of what I mean. The file is an iso file that opens with Imgburn. Some of my other file type icons are displayed in a similar fashion.

I have downloaded TweakUI to rebuild icons. That did not work. I have also tried out IconPackager from Stardock to basically reload the icon package. Again, that did not work. The only other thing I can think of is that perhaps my AV is effecting this. I am running AVG Free 10. Thanks for any and all assistance.

A:Icon on "paper"

Hmmmm.....that's an interesting problem. Not sure I have any answers to that one but you could try just flushing the thumbnail cache. Type "disk cleanup" in the search window from the START menu and see what that does. Short of that, I am not sure what the fix would be. It sounds like Linux and Windows are affecting one another. Well, actually I'd put my money on Linux affecting Windows more than the reverse. I love my Linux machine!! That being said, I don't run dual boot and haven't seen this problem before.

Best wishes,

Mike

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:

The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"
Reference:
Mklink
