First thing I would do is download the latest printer drivers and software from Epson.

Go to Printers and Faxes from the start menu and delete the printer.

Re-install the new drivers and software EXACTLY according to the instructions.

You should then have an working printer.

thankyou very much, ive down loaded it but the print is that small i cant read. sorry but do you know how i can make the print larger ( as you can see not very good with computers) Ta

Please follow the installation instruction that are given on the page I gave the reference to.

If you can't do that, install the software from the disk that came with the printer, again following the instructions EXACTLY.

I am fairly certain that your problem is caused by the currently installed software being corrupt and will be cured by a re-installation but, it is best to remove the old software first. To do this click on Start, then Printers and Faxes. This will show you a list of printers on your machine. RIGHT click on the problem printer and click on Delete in the list that comes up. This will remove all traces of the printer ready for you to re-install.

When you go into printers, make sure that your printer is the "DEFAULT" printer

€dstowe, FYI. Epson printers with "Plus" were only sold by PC World. They are exactly the same as other "U" Epson printers. For example. my friend has a C44 Plus bought from PCW. I have an old C44 U bought from Ebuyer. They are exactly the same printer.
