You may have recalled my complaining about this lousy inkjet printer before. Well, it's gone again!!
This time it fails to print information. That is to say, if I try to print an Email, it only prints the "to and from", but no text. Trying to print a bank statement, it prints the "frame", but no entries, leaving it looking like a form that needs to be filled in. It is doubly annoying as I have just bought 4 new cartridges for it.
I would be glad if someone could come up with a reason and solution. If not, can anyone suggest a low-priced printer that actually works? This has come at a very bad time, so I can't afford much, but I need a working mono printer (colour not necessary), inkjet or laser. It is not worth another shop repair (I have already spent more than the printer cost in repairs and I don't want to throw good money after bad), and I need it quickly.
If its printing- the printers OK This is a software problem in the computer somewhere. Exactly what I cannot bring to mind at the moment others will I am sure. before I do
One ovious ome is to delete the printer software thoroughly and reload To do this you must come off line and disable your A/V protection first. follow the instructions explicitly Epson are very particular about this.
once again it printed normally, so no immediate problem. However, it keeps doing this.
When I borrow my son's Brother 2090 laser printer, I have no such problem. Everything works, so it has to be the Epson software.
At times, when I click on print, I get a message saying "communication problem", but it prints normally. Last time, it was telling me it was printing, and it wasn't. The strange thing was that it printed normally for about half an hour and then I got the problem.
It is precisely the Operating system and/or drivers that are the variable. All manner of thing can corrupt/upset software installations and not only virus or other intruders. I expect a removal and re-installation of the driver set in the particular computer will solve it.
