Epson Colour 460

  JACC 12:50 12 Feb 2005

I have the above printer , and now it refyses to work .I'm using XPpro,tried everything,troubleshooter ,manually loading the printer with xp , uninstalling it reinstalling it , unplugging it , switching it off switching it back on , checking the leads ( kicking it , not quite but close ) downloading new drivers that somehow won't load ? Next place for it is the bin , unless you can help me of course , it won't even print a test page . No new software installed recently so now i'm stuck HELP

have you tried using the Epson Printer installation Disk provided with the Printer, and chose the Windows 2000 option install? May give it a KICK start ;)

I tried the utility from Fruit Bat /\0/\ but it just says "Printer off or some other problem" thank you anyway Fruit Bat. I seems to me that the printer has come to the end of it's life and maybe it's time to let it go , my scanner needs replacing , so it looks like a multifunction machine next . If you got one let me know how they fair .

Can you try in on another PC? If this works you then know it's not the printer. Try also uninstalling the printer utility as this caught me out a while ago (symptoms were after clicking Print, nothing happened at all - no error messages, nothing in queue etc.)

Hi pipedream , thankyou for your reply , but i've tried everything and still no luck . Looks as though i'll have to get rid off some of my hard earned readies and buy a new beastie .

Not true woodchip - you can download an XP driver from their website, or XP may detect it & install automatically.
