On 11 July 2017 I bought EPSON WorkForce Pro WF-4640 from Joyce Mayne on 11 July 2017 (invoice(###) ###-####.
This afternoon (Saturday 9 September 2017) I have tried to set it up.
I have not been able to use the printer since trying to set it up a couple of hours ago.
I have twice downloaded the set up. Firstly with the CD, then with https://www.epsonconnect.com/
On both occasions it could not connect to the internet!

The printer is switched on but the message: Printer not found.
I have followed the on-screen instructions and run set up again and again ...
How do I check the printer's network settings? I did not receive a manual

You may wish to contact me by phone +**********or let me know if you would like to call by tomorrow when I'll be there.

Expert:  Viet - Printer Tech replied 1 month ago.

On the printer's screen, you would touch the Wi-Fi / wireless signal icon, then touch option Wi-Fi Setup, then option Wi-Fi Setup Wizard, then select / connect to your Wi-Fi / wireless network name.

Note: If needed, your Wi-Fi / wireless / network passphrase / password ***** key might be located at the back / bottom of your internet modern / router device(s); it is case-sensitive.

Once that is done successfully, then run the setup again; it should work.
