You say you cannot re-install your printer but you say that the wi-fi connection is ok. Is your printer seen by your PC? When you click on "print" is the printer in the list? Did you reinstall the relevant driver?

Have you tried printing anything else other than web pages?

Have a look at this article about problems with printing web pages.

so is to best to uninstall then re-install from scratch? i installed from the disc as when first activated! is it possible for drver to have become corrupted during install?

I would uninstall and reinstall and make sure that your PC has recognised your printer in Devices and Printers. Make sure that you completely uninstall everything. It is possible that a driver can have been corrupted but these can be downloaded from the Epson site or you can let Windows 7 find a suitable driver.

When you have installed it try to print something other than a web page. If you still cannot get it to print web pages then go through the troubleshooter in the article in my previous post.

Your printer may not be printing but other functions are getting properly executed. The cause may be the clogging of the ink cartridge. Just implementing the cleaning process can get it fixed.
