Connected to my Macbook Pro 17" (10.6.2) is my relatively (Important bit) Epson R285 printer. The other day it started to refusing printing full stop. I would send a print job, and get the external 'Sending print data....' and that would be it. I thought I was going mad, I reinstalled the drivers, deleted loads of preferences, ran Onyx a few times and nothing.
At the same time, the 'low ink' light was flashing but like everyone else i just ignored this. I was ready to reinstall the OS and all my apps I was so desperate! I have VMWare Fusion running XP so I thought, worst case I can always print from there. Time to put the new ink in. Since it was a new printer it had those 'test, half-empty/half full cartridges' installed so €45 later, 3 new inks were installed.
On a whim, I tried printing again from 10.6 and low and behold..... it printed! Now this raises a couple of questions:
1. Why doesn't the print dialogue be more explicit in this situation: Hey 'I am not going to print unless you top me up' Granted there is a 'low ink' light and icon but not a 'bugger off, I'm not gonna print icon'
2. Is this Epson forcing the user to buy new ink? I always use to print regardless what ink was missing, invariably I just needed to print and could handle an odd colour. Now, low ink means, 'go buy more ink and I shall print!'
Anyway, anybody who has similar 'Sending print data...' print issues with an Epson printer, check you ink as it may just solve your printing problems!

By any chance are you using the "Gutenprint" driver for your printer? A poster in another thread noted that switching from a Gutenprint driver to a driver from Epson enabled the ink status capability.
