Customer Question
My Epson XP-235 Is...

My Epson XP-235 Is flashing a red light above the droplet symbol. I presume this means ink is low. How do I find out which cartridge needs replacing?

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Epson is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Model C4620

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

PC and Windows 10

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

This has been going on since I bought this new laptop a couple of months ago

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

How can I get a manual for the printer?

Your computer should have the Epson Status Monitor installed which will pop up on your computer and show you which cartridge is low
