I have two epsons linked to two PCs through switches. With one PC I am getting "out of paper" on both printers. With the other I have no problem, so it won't be the printers. I have uninstalled and reinstalled latest drivers and also re-installed win98SE. After that excercise yesterday things worked, but today they have gone back to "out of paper". I have checked for virus and spyware and am clean. Anyone any suggestions please?
I had the same problem when I tried a simillar set up, but two printers and a scanner to one pc via a switch box. The problem seemed to be using the switch box, as each piece of hardware was fine on its own.
However, this didn't rule out a compatabilty problem as one of the printers, epson 5500 laser, needed its own "windows printing system" software to run. With this installed, the pc started to produce other problems if I installed other printers, and their drivers, even with the laser "disabled" via the control panel settings.
