Apollo p1200 and Win 2k

OK here's the problem...

I have an Apollo p1200 printer, I've just upgraded to win2k pro and now the printer only prints in green...

I know it's not the Ink cartridge coz taht's new and was fine under 98.

The apollo website reccomends hp deskjet 420c drivers for win 2k, I've installed HP dj 420 drivers from the win2k disk, as these are the only ones I could find.

anybody got any suggestions??

Cheers

The green printing, does it do that also with internal printouts, like a demo page initiated by holding down a certain button when powering up, your manual should be able to help you here.


Well since you found the website, and the explanation it just won't work, I am wondering what else you expect, even we cannot come up with some kind of miracle.
You have to understand that you are working with two contradicting products, the Apollo is like the cheapest printer around, it prints, but only under the predefined OS, if you like to upgrade, fine, but these are the cosequences.
If you have a very small budget, you better had invested in a DJ640 or a DJ840 both also the cheapest of the line, but at least they have a win2000 driver

Good luck,

Pete
