Epson 1280 Printer Problem


I just upgraded from vista 32 to win 7 64 (clean install) with only a few problems (love win 7!)But i'll confine this post to one problem in particular:

I have two printers installed: hp laserjet 1020 and epson 1280 inkjet. I have creatacard installed in xp mode and it works fine. In the usb tab, i've left the printers in share mode (both show up, the hp is labeled with its full name, the epson is labeled with only "usb printer" - perhaps a clue to the problem?) I can print to the hp printer from creatacard but not to the epson printer. If i first start xp mode and take the "usb printer" out of share mode, then creatacard can print to it (one extra step).

Additional information: the epson printer does not show up on the "devices and printers" page and yet it does show up in the print dialog when printing a document directly from a win 7 application.

I have a creatacard icon on the win 7 desktop and it launches creatacard full screen just the way i want it to - and - it prints right out of the box to the hp printer with no intermediate action by me. I would like the same capability for the epson printer.

Question: what can i do to allow use of the epson printer in share mode for xp mode programs?

Ps, in system information - printer, the epson 1280 shows up on usb002 port and carried the right description, "epson stylus photo 1280 (m)". The hp laserjet shows up on port usb001. When i do attempt to print with the epson printer in share mode (labeled as "usb printer" in the usb dialog but corrected labeled as epson 1280 in the creatacard printer dialog box) i get an error message, "epson status monitor 3: communication error". To get rid of it i have to start task manager and stop the epson status monitor application.

Epson Cx4600 Printer Will Not Work

Ms says epson cx4600 printer is win7 compatible with driver from epson. Epson says they have no intention of providing driver. I just purchased a pc with win7. Epson cx4600 printer will not work with win7.microsoft win7 compatibility chart indicates that the printer is compatible (proudly displaying the win7 compatibility logo) and provides a link to download a driver.

The link takes you to the epson site which states that no driver is available for the cx4600 printer. I emailed epson about the availability of a driver. Their response was that epson would not be providing a win7 driver. So any suggestions to make epson cx4600 work with win7?

Epson Photo Rx620 Printer

I recently upgraded from vista premium 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit. My epson photo rx 620 printer worked fine on vista, but doesn't work on windows 7. When i run the printer troubleshooter it tries to download the drivers for this printer, but fails. I contacted epson and they say the printer is compatible with windows 7 and i should get the drivers from microsoft. The microsoft driver download site doesn't list the rx 620 in either the "compatible list" or the "incompatible list".

Every time i try to send microsoft an email, i get the page telling me i have to pay for their help. Does anyone know how i can get the proper drivers for my printer?

Usb Epson Rx620 Printer Sharing

I've got w7 x86 installed with a usb epson rx620 working great. The pc i'm trying to share the printer with is vista ultimate x64. When i search the network for the printer, find it, select it, i get a message about "the server does not have the right driver".

So, i came here and i followed these really great, detailed steps to set up sharing to other pcs on my home network: http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/88b53ce6-b613-4e05-8da3-00e40c2d612b

When i get to the part in these instructions that allows you to add additional drivers, the x86 are already present, the x64 are not. As expected. When i select to add the x64 drivers (presumably the ones that the vista x64 machine is requesting), i get prompted to select the location of the the driver. Hence the problem. Everything i can find on epson's site and ms sites say that "vista drivers get automatically downloaded and installed".

I can't find anywhere the driver to just download and then use. Can anyone suggest a work around for this?

Epson Stylus C60 Printer Driver Not Found

I have a shared printer (epson stylus c60) on a windows xp desktop. When trying to install the printer on a network laptop using windows 7, i get a driver not found on network message. There are no printer drivers available from epson. Their web site states that says to use the "built-in windows 7 driver". That driver does work on the laptop when the printer is connected to it directly. But when on the network, it comes up with an error message that says the "driver cannot be found on the network".

Epson R200 Printer - Custom Print Settings Save

How do i save custom print settings on epson r200 printer in windows 7? I recently purchased a new dell with windows 7, and i have an epson r200 printer. When i go to "advanced" print settings i do not see an option for saving them. For example, when using photoshop i want to save glossy photo paper type, photo print quality, etc. This is annoying because i need to reset them every time i want to print. I used to be able to save custom settings in windows xp.

Epson Stylus 440 Driver

I have just been given a brand new spanking machine (old one just completely died!) With windows 7 on it. I have tried installing a the original driver for my printer, but when i do i get a message -"windows can't install the epson stylus color 440 kernel-mode print driver. To obtain a driver that is compatible with the version of windows you are running, contact the manufacturer".

I click ok and then - another message - "printer driver cannot be installed. Your windows system may be abnormal condition. Exit windows and try again, or setup your windows again". Admittedly the printer is a parallel port - but i am waiting to receive an a adapter that will hook it up to the usb on my new box.

I noticed that in this forum satanonaharley said " i have now solved it, he works for epson and mailed me a set of drivers from wherever. One quick install and the wife is now happy again. I am glad i have a hp laser and a inkjet that are supported" there are no printer drivers on my system to uninstall. I tried contacting epson aust and they said they didn't make a driver for wind 7 that microsoft should - i rang microsoft and they said it was up to epson. If satanonaharley got his to work, how can i?

Epson Printers Printing Slow

Very very slow printing and print spooler all of a sudden, i am practically unable to print on either of my 2 epson printers (r260 and r1800). When hitting print (or ctrl-p) in any application (adobe cs4, or ms office, or internet explorer, or firefox) it takes between 2 and 5 minutes for the printer dialog box to come up and just as long to print when hitting print. I have removed the printers, and re-installed new drivers from epson and i have also done several selective startups and clean boots, none of these help.

The printer is connected directly to the computer via usb. When all printers are deleted and only ms xps document writer and fax are in the list, the dialog boxes come up instantly, but as soon as i re-install any printer, it hangs. I have also re-installed windows 7 (as an upgrade), and stopped and re-started print spooler, but that didn't change anything. Any help would be greatly appreciated, it's driving me crazy.

I have epson stylus nx515 all-in-one printer and i'm trying to install its driver on my windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but i'm receiving "the printer driver package cannot be installed" error in the beginning of installation.

I'm using the latest driver, which was recommended by epson tech guys, who tried to troubleshoot, but said it is a system error. I know this printer worked fine before and i don't know what's changed since then to make it fail to install the drivers now. Can anyone suggest how to troubleshoot this error?

Win7 Can't Find Printer Port For Usb Printer

I have a canon pixma mp780 printer. It is a usb printer. I downloaded the latest driver, which is supposed to be specifically for windows 7. Windows installed the driver with no problems, but it is having trouble locating the printer port. I have the cable connected on both the pc and the printer. I have tried unplugging and re-plugging them both, as well as restarting the machine. The window for finding the printer port has the following message:

"Caution! Cannot detect the printer port. Check that the printer is on and that the cable is connected. If the port has not been detected even though it is connected, disconnect the cable from the printer and then reconnect it. "

I am at a loss as to what to do next. The window claims it will close once it finally detects the printer port. I have tried to plug the printer into different usb ports in hope that one of them would finally be recognized, but so far it has been to no avail. Do i need to reboot? Is there anything else i can do? I didn't have any problems when i was using windows xp, so i'm sure it is a windows 7 issue.
