Epson Stylus Color 680 Driver Woe

  john88 20:10 19 Aug 06

I have just got a new PC and installed my printer thru plug & play on XP pro. It was working OK but now an error light is being displayed on the printer and it refuses to print. I downloaded the epson status monitor program but when I try to intsall it I get a message saying that the printer isn't installed. Device manager of course shows the printer as being installed. I'd appreciate any help. Thanks.

Try uninstalling and re-installing. Provided there is nothing wrong with the printer it should be OK.

May need to use the "Add printer wizard" XP gets a bit humpy sometimes, had the same problem with the wifes C20.

I've tried deleting the printer then re-installing with the wizard but no joy. The Epson Status Monitor utility program still refuses to work. When I try to install I get a message saying that the printer is not installed please try again.

Have you tried to install using the Epson software supplied with the printer rather than the XP wizard ?

Hi, if it's a usb connection, you must install the software first, then when asked to, connect the usb lead and switch the printer on and wait for windows to find it.
Hope this helps.
