First I hope this is in the right thread as I use XP. If not I'm sure a mod will put it where it should be.

Now to the problem.

I have 2 Epson printers one is a stylus photo R265 the other is a DX4850. As I do a lot of printing I have installed continuous ink systems on both of them.

The R265 works brilliantly but the DX4850 always puts up a nag screen saying I'm not using genuine Epson inks before it will print - and its ANNOYING!

Obviously I can't contact Epson about this I'm just wondering if anyone has a workround to get rid of it?

No info to be found on the Epson website.

Try going into the printer driver and see if there is a setting you can change in there to turn off the nag.

Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > View Installed Printers

RIGHT click on the Epson DX4850 > Properties

Poke around in there and try to find a setting that can be changed.

How is this a grey area? It doesn't seem to be to be a grey area to me as Epson put the provision for turning off this nag in their own driver for this printer.

BTW, good googling!

Thanks Guys. I knew turning off Epson status monitor 3 would stop it but my point was 2 printers BOTH with sm3 turned on
but only 1 nag screen when printing with the DX4850.

it's a system built into the printer, and the ink cartidges have the other half of the system, it's been in the news for years now. there's a few court cases either going on or pending dealing with this issue. I am not sure there's any way to stop the nag screen. I know ink refill places can reset the original cartidges to a "0 print" mode and supposedly the printer will work.
