  • Then before re-run adjustment program, change the setting to 11 July 2007

How changing date setting in the PC :

  • Double click the clock in the systray or click Start – Control Panel then select “Date and Time”
  • Because the example using adjustment program Epson C90. Date setting for this adjustment is July 11, 2007. So that change the date setting on PC to July 11, 2007 (for Adjustment Epson C90) – apply – Ok

  35. chandi devi says:

    Hi, I’ve been reading all this. I have a problem with my Stylus Photo R230. When I print, it automatically makes 2 copies. Even when I change the no’s from 1-anything, it makes 2. I read somewhere where Mac uses “custom” as its default, but I never “customized” it, only I change the amounts of prints all the time. Seems like its stuck and I cannot find anywhere where it addresses this problem. The epson tech people here are braindead and do not help, nor do they come. Any help in this??? Thank you so much. I am frustrated. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the software about 5 times now. Always get an error message, cannot complete inastallation-communication error”, but the printer works, nontheless. Am downloading updater. Please advise. Thnx.

  39. Guido says:

    I did it as mentioned in the ReadMe file in the folder after extract adjustment program for epson printers.
    – Change date of PC to February 1 2007
    – Run AdjProg. It will give Error message
    – Exit Program
    – Delete the folder c:/Adjustment Programs on your PC
    – Run AdjProg again and reset counters. It works perfectly this time
    – Power aff Printer
    – Power on Printer and don’t forget to replace the waste inkt cartridge or clean it with absorbic paper…
    This comment is mainly copied from the ReadMe after extracting program files.
    Good luck, Guido
