I've just been given the above all-in-one printer and can't seem to get it to install. I did not get the CD so downloaded the drivers from the Epson site. Although the download goes without a hitch (I've deleted and reinstalled a couple of times now) it does not find it when I try to install. The printer is being detected as I get the new hardware message with the printer title in the message but then fails to find the software. I looked in device mgr and the printer has a couple of yellow questions marks against it. I've also tried to use windows to install but again the software is not found...Any suggestions welcomed as ever.
I have a similar printer somewhere... the printer needs to be switched off (or not connected), the driver run, and THEN the printer turned on (or connected) only when the software install gets to that stage.... else it isn't recognised.
Does that sound possible? Obviously, uninstall drivers first, if you are going to try that.
Thanks for this. but I cant get the installation to work at all. The software is there... but no way,that I can see, to activate it. So although windoows recognises the printer is there it says it can't find the software....I'll give it another try..
I've just tried to add the printer to my Vista system with the same result..I'm missing something but not sure what...it says that Easyprint has been downloaded ...ok but what do I do next..? There is no icon for epson in control panel...and if I plug in the printer it says software no found...I'm going to have to scratch my head a bit...
What form has the downloaded file taken? Can you/have you pointed windows at the folder that has the (expanded)download in it?
I thought I got an exe file that, on running, brought up an Epson install box where I chose my printer from a couple offered... ... ... then it asked me to turn printer on.... found printer ..... ... found drivers... then said "printer installed".
