I've got a new computer and am gradually transferring all the software - using the original discs.
Finally I tried the printer and all I get is
Epson manager X
and a pop up box that says
Error while spooling to ""
Unable to start the spool manager
The priinter is fine - works on the old computer
so the cable must be ok.
I've reinstalled the pirnter drivers from teh original disc
I've downloaded updated drivers
I've waited 2 weeks from a response from Epson.
My next move is a new printer unless you can think of something else
