Recently although I can print I find that the window showing the details of
the printer including showing the amount of ink remaining does not open.
What causes this and how can I correct this?
I have reinstalled the driver and sometimes it works but does not last

Sometimes the print will process faster than the software for the print
monitor to open. The important question is if you can access the ink usage
monitor when you go to Start, Printers and Faxes, then right click on the
880, then Properties, and finally Printing Preferences. If you then see the
amount of ink that's available your software is still working okay.

There's a nifty utility program available for Epson's that, among other
things, provides an ink level monitor. I use it and have used it on an 880.

Thanks for your reply. When I checked the outline of the ink boxes were
there but do not show the amount.
