Hi all,

During a couple of years, I use my printer without any problem but since the past week, the printing stops without any reason at approximatly the third of the page !!!

I tested it with 2 different computers, I changed the parallel cable , tne ink cartrigde, I reinstalled the drivers but nothing worked.

Any ideas

TIA

i believe after you got this problem, you havent got a complete print copy, right? if so, i would strongly suggest you bring this machine to your local Epson service authority for hardware services, since it apparently is a sort of mechanism problem. please dont not use it again, to prevent further more problems.

hmm, you may have a latest try on it: find another computer, make sure you did NOT install any Epson's driver on it, then install the driver on it with all the default settings, if the printer does not work still, please go ahead to bring it back to Epson asap.

hope it helps,
bbao

I tested the printer with another computer and it still not work. Because my printer was old (3 years), I decided to buy another one : Canon i865.

Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.
