    Hello,

    I purchased a used Epson XP-820 printer without any ink cartridges and have ordered some new ones which should arrive Monday or Tuesday. I'm uncertain of the condition of the printer. The XP-820 appears to be in good condition, however I'm not certain of it's actual working condition and if there are any problems with the printer, until I'm able to test it with new ink carts.

    In the meantime I'm trying to familiarize my self with the printer, installing software, drivers and firmware updates if needed.

    I went to the XP-820 software download web-page where it lists more than one driver version and software utilities. plus an firmware update.

    Out of what's listed below, I chose to download and install Drivers and Utilities Combo Package
    08/15/14 191.14 MB epson15811.exe


    However I'm uncertain whether to install the * Firmware Update - Recovery Mode version YD07F8

    I attempted to install the epson17555.exe Maintenance reset utility which produced an error message

    "Maintenance message cannot be removed or no applicable printer found."

    I was able to install the free WIC utility which provided some information such as the serial number and waste counters, which appear to be ok.

    WASTE COUNTER MAIN: 40.19 %
    WASTER COUNTER PLATEN PAD: 0.18 %
    _______________________________________________

    Anyway I would like to check out and test the printer with any utility programs or just use it's maintenance mode, once the new ink carts arrive. I'll probably need to first print several test pages, and test the other features as well.

    I'm open to any suggestions in testing the functionality of this printer.

    I rarely print any photos, mostly black ink onto plain paper.
