epson 760 turning off

  honda5 00:22 19 Jul 2005

I've got an Epson 760 with XP home , all OK for year but recently won't print after just leaving the computor on for a while or putting it on standby .
I get the error message "a commuication error has occured , check all cables ........"
The cable checks out OK on my old computor
Turning off and resarting sometimes clears the problem but not always .
I've downloaded the latest drives and also talked to Epson who took me through some printer checks and thought it was cured but no,the problem is still there - very frustrating
