Epson Epson Stylus Photo 2000P

Epson 2000p and Status Montior 3(m) error

I just got a new to me Epson 2000p and it actually does print fine, but when I try to look at the ink levels via the status monitor (or while it's printing) I get the following error:
A communication error has occurred.
Check all cable connections and make sure all devices are on. If the device was turned off during printing, cancel the print job. If the error still does not clear, see the manual's troubleshooting section to cancel the error.

I did download the proper drivers but I don't have the original manual and any online manuals don't mention this error, so I can't cancel this error. Is there any way to get this error to go away?
I am running XP and downloaded these drivers: Printer Driver v5.2as and Status Monitor 3 v1.0dES

Thanks in advance!
