Hi there!!

i even tried to change the driver downloaded form net. and also switch to 4L or even tried 6L driver.. but result same

What happens if you hit the button on the printer? You should get a test page.

Instead of chaging the driver, remove all instances of the printer, turn off the computer and turn it back on and then add the printer and reload trying the epson action laser 1500 driver.
