    For those having issues not being able to print black...

    • Written by from Phoenix

    Replaced all your cartridges and still cannot print simple black? I had this issue. Couldn't find any help.

    What I did, was to remove the black cartridge, and then re-seat it.... over and over. I did this about 6 or 7 times. Quickly and forcefully (not too forcefully). Hoping to flush/force loose anything that was clogging it. By doing this, it created a small mess of black ink where the cartridge connects (just a few small drops), but it seems like the pressure caused it to loosen up and work.

    I cannot make any promises, but this worked for me. Just needed a little kick.

    When this printer works, it's good. But.... so many issues.

    Frustrating set-up

    • Written by from Edmond

    After attempting to set up my new printer several times with no luck, I called customer service. The gentleman I spoke to was not able to help. He promised me an email with further instructions which I never received. Sometime after my failed set-up attempts, I got a software update alert from Apple for my new printer. I downloaded the update and tried again. This time I was successful...finally.

    I hate this printer so much

    • Written by from Miami

    This printer stopped printing in grayscale the other day because it had used up all of its yellow ink. After a quick investigation into the problem, we learned that it's actually designed to do this. In order to print in black ink only, this printer requires the use of red, yellow, and blue ink as well, conveniently requiring the customer to go out and purchase more color ink--even if they don't want to use it.

    So, biting the bullet and admitting that Epson had won, we shelled out for replacement cartridges. After replacing all the cartridges, the black ink then just stopped working. I don't know why. No one can figure it out. The printer just shoots out blank sheets of paper. Meanwhile, I have an 8 a.m. meeting with a client, so off I go to use the office printer at 11 p.m.. Thanks so much, Epson.

    Not Air Print Ready

    • Written by from Los Angeles

    Much like many of the other reviews on here, this printer is awful if you hope to use it with Air Print. It disconnects (I find it doesn't even have to goto sleep, it just disconnects after a few minutes) from the WiFi network leaving your phone or MacBook searching for it. A restart solves the problem or re-inputting the WiFi password, but that should not be necessary. As a note I am using a MacBook Air (2014), iPhone 6, iPhone 5S and a MacBook Pro (2010) on an Airport Time Capsule connection (2013). Once connected, the printer may also print streaky (but not always). I will be selling this on Craigslist and reading reviews more carefully next time. Completely unreliable.

    Frustrating!

    • Written by from Glen Arm

    I'm sure it is user error, but i have a Mac desktop and my wife has a Mac laptop - if i hardwire the printer to my desktop i can print but my wife can't. If i take the cable out and use the wi-fi, my wife can print and my desktop says "communication error - printer offline". I've restarted the printer, restarted my desktop, re-installed the drivers, etc. everything i can think of, and everything i can find on the internet. Usually fixes for Apple products and non-Apple products are fairly simple, i've yet to find a way for both of us to be able to print.

    Overall good, but too many frustrations

    • Written by from New York

    I've had this printer for ~2 years. It's an ok multifunction printer generally - good quality prints; it prints pretty quickly, and the copy and scan functions are really useful. But there are so many frustrations I've had with it that I'm ready to chuck it and buy another.

    -The biggest frustration is that this printer goes to sleep. When it does that, it loses the wireless connection with my Mac (and any AirPrint devices) and I'm unable to print. I either have to reconnect it to my WiFi for the Mac to recognize it - or I have to turn it off and turn it back on. I know that the printer is still connected to my WiFi just fine because while I'm fighting with it, my husband can happily print away from his PC. This happens to me ALL THE TIME, and it means that 90% of the time I can't just print from my Mac - I have to restart this printer, which kind of defeats the purpose of making it wireless.

    -The second worst is that although you can replace the ink cartridges individually, you need at least a little ink in each cartridge to print anything, including black and white. That, to me, defeats the purpose of being able to replace them individually! It doesn't matter if I can replace them individually if I still have to buy a whole new pack of CYM because my cyan ran out while I'm trying to print a stupid airline ticket I only need in black and white.

    Then there are minor things, such as if the printer moves just a bit during printing - or you know, not at all - the printer will get horribly jammed. The ADF in the scanner gets jammed relatively frequently too. All in all, I'm not completely unhappy but I wouldn't buy this printer again.

    Disappointing

    • Written by from Basking Ridge

    The build is not very good. The device is rather flimsy and made high-pitched squealing noises during operation from the first day. After a few weeks, it began printing broken type, and none of the maintenance functions were able to correct the problem. The Epson support line was not helpful and left me with no solution. I simply threw the machine out.

    NOT a wireless printer

    • Written by from ARLINGTON HEIGHTS

    This printer does NOT print wirelessly for me. If you search reviews, you will find dozens of reviews that say the same. When you first bring it home and set it up, it seems great, then after it goes to sleep, it stops communicating with my macbook and I have to go down to the printer and physically turn it on and off. Twice I have been on the phone with Epson support and they simply reinstalled drivers and both times the printer goes back to needing to be powered off-on. Finally, Epson said it is my Time Machine's fault and that I should call Apple. I would not buy this printer again, and Apple certainly should not list it as an apple compatible product.

    Printing

    • Written by from San Jose

    I found the setup clumsy. I finally got it working (it printed OK), but when I went to print from my computer the next day, it would not print (said the printer was off-line). Since this is 80% of the device usage, this is most annoying. I went through the setup again, but it still doesn't print.

    New Printer

    • Written by from LAKE SAINT LOUIS

    Pretty cool printer. Easy setup except for the USB slot is not where the instructions specifiy. Setting up the WIFI using the key board is pretty easy so no need for the USB connection. Print quality is excellent. Looks like the price of ink is competitive.

    Purchased

    • Written by from Alvin

    Just purchased this printer about two months ago when I bought my new Mac desktop. So far, the things I like:
    Ease of setup and use
    Wi fi
    LCD screen
    Fax..speed dial, number storage, group faxing
    Scanner
    USB Ports to download or print
    Network capable

    What I don't like:

    The arrow keys and the "ok"keys on the control panel. They are noisy and seem cheaply made to me.
    But I guess thats easy to say when you've been using an LCD screen at work for years. All in all a good product for the investment. I'd rate it 4 3/4 stars.....

    New product

    • Written by from Willits

    I recently set up my WF2540 using the wifi and it is working quite well. I have not done any photo's yet, hope to soon. So far I am happy with the new printer and it is much faster than my older model Epson, which also worked well.

    AirPrint does not work at all and if I try to print via USB, it will recognize it once in about 10 attempts. Works with my iPad, but I need it to work with my laptop as well.
