Have you tried: Restore to a date 3 weeks plus when it was working. Or uninstall and start again?

How did you get on?

I've always found that with Sony printer drivers it's always best to install just the basic driver and forget the rest. Install from 'advanced' option from the CD instalation disc.

best method is uninstall from add remove, do a search for Epson the delete what it finds. then Reinstall Printer Software from CD

Not always the best option. The Drivers supplied on the CD with my D92 printer were faulty and after the first use the Epson Status Monitor was impossible to shut down. The drivers downloaded from the Epson website worked OK.

Motto - Get the latest drivers from the manufacturers website.

Same printer. Installed the whole lot and had problems with the status monitor just like yourself. Uninstalled and just installed the basic driver from the disc and works ok.

Yes, seems it was a general problem with this printer. Lots of people had problems with it. I feel sorry for anyone who didn't know how to solve it. It is/was an entry level printer so was probably bought by many people who were perhaps not so computer savvy as most of us here and wouldn't know where to get help. A bit amiss of Epson to put out a dodgy CD.
