The settings are in spanish!!! (printer)

  Dearersteak 13:06 24 Mar 2003

I have a dell dimension 8200 and am running XP home. I also ordered an Epson Stylus photo 810 with the machine. Now I have had no trouble with this set up till now. Yesterday, I tried to print a document off, and the black appeared just to die over the course of a page. Now according to the printer, it’s still half full, and this make senses because it’s still a fairly new cartridge. No I believe that the heads need a clean, because the other day when printing a photo of, the black did seem to be leaving lines across the photo. Now I’m sure that the printer has a self cleaning feature on it, but that’s where I encounter my second problem.
Now when I received my dell, it came with everything preinstalled which was rather handy. But for some reason, all the manuals, settings, everything relating to the printer, Is in Spanish and I don't have a clue on where to start on going about changing them over to English without having to re-install the whole thing

Any other details you need let me know.

Go to the Epson website and download the up-to-date drivers and status monitor click here

Remove the Spanish drivers and install these.

Are the Regional settings for your system set to Spain??

If so, reset to English (UK) - then uninstall and re-install the printer software.

the machine is set in english, but i'm going to un-install/re-install the software because i think thats the only way its going to work.

will let you guys know if it works or not

Are you removing the old drivers from "Printers & Faxes" on the start menu or from Add/Remove Programs. Deleting from Add/Remove is likely to leave things behind (like the Spanish text).

The printer must be deleted completely from the Printers & Faxes menu by highlighting and then clicking on "Delete this printer". You should then be able to re-install the new drivers and status monitor that you have downloaded from the Epson site.
