|epson 740i printer The printer was exactly what I needed. It arrived in excellent condition, works perfectly and even came with a new ink cartridge. Disappointed! Ink level monitor is a joke, when it was still printing great, it show ink out (which is not true) and stop printing.|

You can create up to 10 custom paper sizes (one in Windows 3.1) and add them to the Paper Size list using the User Defined option. This is useful if youre printing a custom size document, such as a banner. You can select any width from 3.5 to 9.5 inches, and any height (length) from 3.5 to 44 inches. Follow these steps to create a User Defined paper size: 3 Follow the steps in Printing from Windows to access the printer software, then click the Paper tab. Click the Paper Size list and scroll to the bottom of it using the arrows or scroll bar. Click the User Defined option. You see one of the following dialog boxes:
Windows 3.1 Windows 95, 98, NT Advanced Printing Page 52
Note: In Windows 95, 98, and NT, the Paper Width and Paper Height units are in hundredth of an inch (or centimeter) increments. For example, 850 equals 8.50 inches.
Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT Type a name (up to 24 characters) for your custom paper size in the Paper Size Name field. Then select a Paper Width and Paper Height for the paper. To use centimeters instead of inches, click the 0.01cm option. When youre finished, click Save. The paper size name appears in the Paper Size list in the dialog box.

Type the width in the Paper Width field and the length in the Paper Height field. Then click OK.
Click the arrow and select a multiple page print layout
If the page order of the layout shown in the printer graphic is how you want your document printed, go to step 6. To change the page order, click the arrow in the Page Order pop-up list. Then select the page order you want to use.
Note: To add a custom watermark, you must first create the watermark as a PICT file in an application program that can create PICT files. See your applications documentation for instructions. If you selected a multiple page print layout option (as described in Using Multiple Print Layouts and Page Frames), your watermark will appear on each page in the layout.
You can add a watermark to each page in your document to emphasize its purpose or indicate how the document should be handled. For example, you may want to add a watermark of the word Confidential to documents you dont want distributed to other parties. Or you can add a custom PICT file of your company logo so your document looks like printed letterhead. Open an application and select a document to print. Open the File menu and click Print. In the printer settings dialog box, click the You see the Layout dialog box. Layout button.
To use one of the predefined watermarks, click the arrow in the Name list in the Watermark box and choose one of these: Confidential Draft Urgent Priority Hot Go to step 6.

Click the Add button to select a PICT file
Click the Add button. You see a dialog box for selecting files. Navigate to the folder containing the PICT file you want to use, select the file, and click Open. The name of your PICT file appears in the Mark Name field and is added to the Watermark List. Click the Save button to close the dialog box. The custom watermark now appears as the selected watermark in the Layout dialog box and is shown in the layout graphic. 6 Now select the way you want the watermark to appear by choosing the following options. The layout graphic changes to reflect all the settings you choose. Color lets you choose a color for your predefined watermark: Red, Black, Blue, Aqua, Lime, Fuchsia, or Yellow. You cannot select a color for a custom watermark; it is printed in its original colors.
Intensity sets the lightness or darkness of the watermark (from 5% to 100%) based on where you move the slidebar. To adjust the size and position of the watermark, move the cursor over the Layout graphic. Four boxes appear in the corners of the graphic and the cursor changes to a hand.
Deleting a Stalled Print Job
If youre having trouble printing, it may be because of a stalled print job. Follow these steps to delete it and continue printing: Click the EPSON Stylus COLOR 740 button on the taskbar. Click on any print jobs marked Held. Click the Cancel button. Exit Spool Manager and try printing again.
Using Status Monitor 2
Status Monitor 2 lets you view detailed information about your print jobs and control how you want printing monitored. Before you can use Status Monitor 2, you must enable background monitoring for your printer if it isnt already enabled. Follow the instructions in these sections: Enabling Background Monitoring Setting Up Monitoring Preferences Using the Status Monitor 2 Main Window Using the Printer Status Window Using the Job Status Window

You can select the way you want Status Monitor 2 to monitor your printer using the Monitoring Preferences window. There are several ways to open the window: Click the printer name in the Installed Printers list to highlight it and click the icon or select Monitoring Preferences from the Settings menu. Right-click the printer name in the Installed Printers list and select Monitoring Preferences from the drop-down menu.
You see the Monitoring Preferences window:
Set the length of the interval in which you want Status Monitor 2 to monitor your printer here (short intervals may cause some applications to run slower) Turn background monitoring on or off for the selected printer
If youre having trouble printing, it may be because of a stalled print job. Follow these steps to delete it and continue printing: Open the Spool Manager as described in Using the Spool Manager. Click on any print jobs marked Held. Open the Document menu and click Delete. Then click Yes. Exit Spool Manager and try printing again.
Changing the Default Spool Directory
If you get an error message while printing, or printing is very slow, you can try changing your default spool directory. 3 Make a directory on your hard drive where you want Spool Manager to store print job files, for example, C:\SPLTEMP. Open the Spool Manager as described in Using the Spool Manager. Make sure EPSON Stylus COLOR 740 is selected, and then choose Setup from the Queue menu. The Queue Setup dialog box appears. Change the spool directory to the one you created in step 1. Also make sure Use Print Manager for this port is checked. Then click OK.
Choose Default Spool Directory from the Options menu. In the dialog box, change the spool directory to the one you created in step 1. Then click OK. Close Spool Manager.
Managing Print Jobs on a Macintosh
Note: You can also select background printing options before you print. See Setting Up Background Printing Options for more information.
Your Macintosh printer software includes two print job management utilities: Monitor3 and Status Monitor. It also includes a Configuration utility for setting up print monitoring options. If youre using background printing, Monitor3 starts automatically when you send a job to the printer. It handles printing while you continue to work on your Macintosh, lets you track documents that are waiting to be printed, and lets you set priorities and print times for waiting print jobs. The Status Monitor alerts you to any problems that occur during printing. You can also use it at any time to see how much ink you have left. The Configuration utility lets you select how you want to be notified of printer errors and where you want print job files stored.
The Monitor3 utility lets you continue to work on your Macintosh while your document is printing (however, background printing is slower and may also slow down your system). You can then open the Monitor3 dialog box to check on your print jobs and cancel, pause, or restart them. To use this utility, you need to turn on background printing and increase the memory allocation for Monitor3, as described in Setting Up Monitor3.
There are a number of ways to diagnose printer problems: To identify the most common problems, check the printers lights; see Checking the Control Panel Lights for details. You can also view the Printer Status window to identify common problems, if you installed Status Monitor 2 with Windows 95, 98, or NT 4.0. For instructions, see Using the Printer Status Window. On a Macintosh, you can check your ink levels using the Status Monitor; see Using the Macintosh Status Monitor for details. To determine whether the problem is caused by the printer itself, run a printer operation check. See Running a Printer Operation Check for instructions. If you see an error message about your printer settings or have problems with color quality, you may need to confirm your Printer ID number. See Confirming the Printer ID Number for details. For the latest information, check the Help programs and the ReadMe files in the EPSON program group or folder. If any of the suggested solutions in this chapter tell you to uninstall and then reinstall your printer software, see Uninstalling Printer Software for instructions. If none of the suggested solutions here solve your problem, contact your EPSON dealer or see Where To Get Help.

Improving Print Quality
If you find that your print quality has declined, you can often improve it by doing one of the following: Clean the print head following the instructions in Cleaning the Print Head. Use higher quality paper appropriate for your print job. See Selecting Special Media for a list of EPSON papers. Match the Media Type in the printer software to the type of paper you loaded in the printer. Then the printer software can automatically select other settings for the best quality. (See Basic Printing and Selecting Special Media for details.) Turn off High Speed mode in the Advanced dialog box, as described in Customizing Print Quality and Special Effects.
Make sure Economy mode is turned off in the printer software, as described in Customizing Print Quality and Special Effects. Check the status of the B black and A color ink out lights, then replace the ink cartridges, if necessary, as described in Replacing an Ink Cartridge.
Here are some detailed solutions to print quality problems.
The printed image has horizontal banding
Possible cause The Media Type setting doesnt match the loaded paper. The printable side of the paper is face down. The print head nozzles are clogged. The ink cartridges are low on ink. The MicroWeave option is not turned on. The Maximum Printable Area setting is turned on. Solution Make sure the Media Type setting matches the paper youre using. See Printing from Windows or Printing from a Macintosh for instructions. Remove the paper and reload it with the printable side face up. See Media Loading and Handling Guidelines for instructions. Clean the print head. See Cleaning the Print Head for instructions. Check the B black and A color ink out lights to see which cartridge you may need to replace. See Replacing an Ink Cartridge for instructions. Turn on MicroWeave (if available) in the Advanced dialog box. See Customizing Print Quality and Special Effects for more information. Select the Standard Printable Area setting to avoid banding in the expanded margin area. See Selecting Paper Size and Orientation Options for more information.
Vertical lines are misaligned or vertical banding appears
Possible cause The print head nozzles are clogged. The paper thickness lever is in the + position. The High Speed setting is turned on. The print head is misaligned. Solution Clean the print head. See Cleaning the Print Head for instructions. Set the paper thickness lever to the 0 position and try printing again. See Envelopes for instructions. Turn off the High Speed setting if vertical lines are misaligned. See Customizing Print Quality and Special Effects for information. Run the Print Head Alignment utility. See Aligning the Print Head for instructions.
The printed image has incorrect or missing colors
Possible cause The Ink option is set to Black. The Media Type setting doesnt match the loaded paper. The Halftoning and Color Management options are set incorrectly for your document type. Solution Change the Ink setting to Color. See Printing from Windows or Printing from a Macintosh for instructions. Make sure the Media Type setting matches the paper youre using. See Printing from Windows or Printing from a Macintosh for instructions. Use the correct settings for the project youre printing, following the instructions in Customizing Print Quality and Special Effects and Customizing Color Settings.
Possible cause The printable side of the paper is face down. The ICM (Windows 95 or Windows 98), sRGB (Windows 95, 98, NT), or ColorSync (Macintosh) settings are incorrect for your document. The print head nozzles are clogged. The ink cartridges are low on ink or one or more ink colors are empty. The colors displayed on your monitor dont match the printed colors.
Solution Remove the paper and reload it with the printable side face up. See Media Loading and Handling Guidelines for instructions. Use the Automatic mode setting or choose a different Rendering Intent setting (Macintosh). See Advanced Printing for more information.
Clean the print head. See Cleaning the Print Head for instructions. Check the B black and A color ink out lights to see which cartridge you may need to replace. See Replacing an Ink Cartridge for instructions.
Because your monitor and printer use different technologies to represent colors, your printed colors cant exactly match the colors you see on your monitor screen. Use the ICM (Windows 95 or Windows 98), sRGB (recommended for Windows 98 only), or ColorSync (Macintosh) settings to get as close a match as possible. See Advanced Printing for more information. You may be able to adjust various color settings in your application software. See your software documentation for more information.
The color settings in your application software need adjustment. Troubleshooting
The printed image is faint or has gaps
Possible cause The print head nozzles are clogged. The Media Type setting doesnt match the loaded paper. The loaded paper is damaged, old, or dirty. The ink cartridges are low on ink.

See Printing from Windows or Printing from a Macintosh for instructions. Remove the paper and reload a new stack with the printable side face up. See Media Loading and Handling Guidelines for instructions. Check the B black and A color ink out lights to see which cartridge you may need to replace. See Replacing an Ink Cartridge for instructions.
The printed image is blurry or smeared
Possible cause The loaded paper is damaged, old, or dirty. The paper thickness lever is in the wrong position. The paper is damp or the printable side is face down. You loaded special media without a support sheet. Solution Remove the paper and reload a new stack with the printable side face up. See Media Loading and Handling Guidelines for instructions. Set the paper thickness lever to the + position to print on envelopes or other thick media; set the lever to the 0 position to print on other media types. See Envelopes for instructions, then try printing again. Remove the paper and reload a new stack with the printable side face up. See Media Loading and Handling Guidelines for instructions. Follow the special media loading instructions in Media Loading and Handling Guidelines and on the paper packaging for media that require support sheets. Also try loading your media one sheet at a time.
