Printing with Windows / Checking Printer Status and Managing Print Jobs

Using the Progress Meter

When you send a print job to the printer, the Progress Meter opens, as shown in the illustration below.

The Progress Meter indicates the progress of the current print job and provides printer status information when bidirectional communication between the printer and computer is established. This meter also displays helpful tips for better printing and error messages, as explained below.

Epson Printing Tips

Tips for getting the most out of your EPSON printer driver appear in the text box at the bottom of the Progress Meter window. A new tip appears every 30 seconds. For more details on a tip which is currently displayed, click the Details button.

Error messages

If a problem occurs during printing, an error message appears in the text box at the top of the Progress Meter window. For more detailed information, click Technical Support to access the Problem Solver HTML manual. When the ink runs low or out, a How to button appears below the text box. Click How to and EPSON Status Monitor 3 will lead you step-by-step through the cartridge replacement procedure.
