New printer and LPT1 error

A new printer [Epson 915} has been installed to USB and
the old parallel printed software deleted.
the new printer using the installed Epson graphics software works fine in the Epsonusb mode
However when a Word document or onboard graphics program is sent to printer the system keeps looking for a printer in the LPT1 port and reporting error.
How can this be rectified?

Ensure that the printer is the 'SET AS DEFAULT' printer in your printer properties.

Word always uses the default printer unless otherwise instructed at print time.
