    • Make sure the IP address of the computer is correct. If using DHCP, obtain the IP address again. If using a static IP address, change the computer name in the shared folder path to the IP address and try again. (For example, change \\EPSON02\SCAN to \\192.168.xxx.xxx\SCAN)

    Note: In some print cycles a very small amount of surplus ink may be collected in the borderless printing ink pad. To prevent ink leakage from the pad, the product is designed to stop borderless printing when the pad has reached its limit. Whether and how often this is required will vary according to the number of pages you print using the borderless print option. The need for replacement of the pad does not mean that your printer has ceased to operate in accordance with its specifications. The printer will advise you when the pad requires replacing and this can only be performed by an authorized Epson Service provider. The Epson warranty does not cover the cost of this replacement.
