Epson Stylus 1500

Selected FAQ

I am printing from a Windows application. The printer was printing fine a minute ago and now nothing will print. How can I correct this?
First, print a demo page to determine if the printer is operating properly. If the demo page looks fine, check the Spool Manager to make sure the correct settings are enabled. Check to see if the printer is Held. If the printer is Held, click on Queue, then Setup. Note the spool directory, verify "Spool to local printer" is selected, enable "Use Print Manager for this port," and click "OK." To take the printer off of Hold, select EPSON Stylus 1500, click Queue then click the word "Hold" to remove the check mark. This is the most probable solution. Try printing from Windows. If the problem persists, make sure the spool directory is spooling in a directory other than C:\WINDOWS\TEMP, C:\TEMP, C:\DOS, or any software application directory, by checking the spool directory specified in the Spool Manager. If the spool directory is listed as any of the preceding directories, create a unique spool directory such as C:\COLOR or C:\SPOOL (or a directory name that you prefer) on your root directory. You can create a new directory on your root directory from File Manager in Windows or from the MS-DOS Prompt. Change the spool directory in the Spool Manager to the new directory in both the Queue/Setup and in Options/Default Spool Directory. This normally corrects the problem. Refer to page 4-10 of the Stylus 1500 User's Manual for information about the Spool Manager.
