Spent 'interesting' evening at friends house. (She uses Windows ME) She has put a colour cartridge into her printer but now text won't print in 'MS Word 2000' but it will print in 'Paint'.
Pictures will print in MS word 2000 but they are mis-coloured.
the USB cable.
disconected the printer and printed a test page..everything except the black block printed. Even though the printer prog shows there is plenty of black ink in the cartridge.
I deleted and reinstalled the drivers after rebooting...hit a problem, the install said there was a fault with drivers. So, I downloaded from the Epson website..also got error message. It looks like its a win9x driver that's being installed...not an ME one.
So any ideas why I can get text on paint and not word 2000?
Pictures on word 2000 although they look a bit wrongly coloured?
Could it be because colour cartridge is generic?
Why would this affect the use of the black cartridge?
