Epson R800 doesn't print
Posted on 2006-11-26
Greetings all-knowing ones,
I am at my wit's end, hence the question.
My Epson R800 ink jet printer has been a trusty workhorse up until this last weekend. I am trying to print Christmas photos for my clients (via Photoshop CS2) and it has begun to act in the strangest manner. I ALWAYS use PRINT PREVIEW when I print a photo so I can be sure I get what I want. But after I approve the display and press the "PRINT" button, the job goes into the print spooler (with a priority rating of 1 out of 99) and won't print until I tell my computer to RESTART!
At first I thought it was PS, but when I tried printing to another printer from the app, NO problem. Also, I tried printing to the R800 from other applications (i.e. Word) and the job just sits in the job queue--including the Print a Test Page from the printer properties dialog (WIN XP Pro).
