When i try printing on my epson,i get the following message in the internet explorer script window:
char: 1
error: unspecified error
code: 0
url: res://c:\windows\system\shdoclc.dll/previe
I have'nt used my printer for a couple of months & prior to that i formatted my system which is win98.Any advice

Did you re-install the printer driver after formatting? If so try removing the driver using add\remove in control panel, and re-installing.

Have you tried the Windows Test Page?.....If this doesn't print then there is a "list of things to do"

You can get at it via Control Panel > Printers > right click on your printer, > Properties > General (tab) at the bottom there is "Print test page"

It will not work if you connected the printer before you loaded the drivers for a USB printer. To reconfigure Remove the printer from Add Remove then Remove USB from Device Manager Restart Comp With Printer Removed. Then after restart plug in Printer and switch on, DO NOT PUT THE WINDOWS DISC IN, if it ask's for it, put the epson disc in and run the setup from the CD.

Dear All

The problem still persists.I've gone through all the wizard solving problems,but no joy.The latest response i get is the printers folder window pops up & says: There was an error writing to lpt1:for the printer (epson)
There was a problem sending your document to the printer make sure the printer cable is connected & that the printer is online.
Any ideas?
