When I go into printers and faxes there are two printers listed which are and I do not know what happened. Epson Stylus Photo 900(Copy 1) And Epson Stylus Photo 900 It only seems to print when I use the first one which is copy 1. Have tried uninstalling them but get the same thing so how do I make the Copy 1 my default printer.
The (Copy 1) is a duplicate possibly a result of having changed the print output port on the PC at some time. This is easily done if you unplug all the USB connections (to clean/transport the PC) and plug the printer into a different socket on reconnection.
You have a number of options:
Live with using the (Copy 1) printer.
Delete the "Epson Stylus Photo 900" printer and rename the (Copy 1) printer.
Delete both and allow Windows to "Add Printer" (Control Panel/Printers & Faxes/File/Add Printer).
However, I should leave it if it is working OK. It wont do any harm.
On my Canon printer I have two printers listed too (one marked "copy 1"). But in my case, one is for printing via USB and the other wirelessly. However a quick look at the spec for your printer seems to indicate that the wireless option is not available. Probably not much help to you, but maybe Epson are using the same driver to cover a range of printers including some that work wirelessly.
Thanks johndrew I had allready deleted the ERpson Stylus Photo 900 Printer but never thought renaming the other one which I have just done.And yes the printer has been disconnected from the PC when some work was being done on it.Will remember next time to plug it back into where it came from. Thanks for all the help guys
