Done all that lots of times since last friday when i bought it, including with the guidance of 3 epson people. Always made sure my norton was off, even resorted to unistalling that and trying without it on. Have been through a clean unistall several times and its no use. Any more ideas. I am not such a beginner but wanted more step by step instructions then what you get with other forums. I need someone who knows how to configure the port correctly, tried a few things with epson but they are now blaming my pc and say they can't do anything. How come i can unistall my other printer and reinstall and it works fine?
I don't know if this will help as I am using Windows 98SE and you are probably using Windows XP.
Have you tried going to Settings, Printers and selecting Properties off of the printer you are having problems with? On the "Details" tab you should have a "Print to the following port" pull down option where you can select the port that the printer will use.
My Epson C46 went haywire just last night. Did the normal uninstall and reinstall everything routine to no avail. Just downloaded and installed the latest Driver from Epson's site and at the moment, all is back to normal running. There may be a new Driver available for your printer. Worth investigation
Bought a new computer now but would still like to sell on my old one, so i would still like the probelm solved. It was XP and no there is no parellel port on the printer. Also have gone through everything you have all suggested with Epson. Any more ideas? It is going to be a bit difficult now as i have swapped computers.
