Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

Ah, I was wondering if I should go down that route, start again installing the printer from scratch. Thanks Geoff. I have the CD and original instructions. The driver somehow seems to have been not just disabled but deleted by the last Epson software update. The latter consisted of two bundles of so...

Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

Thanks for that. I will of course keep trying with it. Technology is not itself the problem, what is infuriating is that the designers design it for themselves, not for the people who have to use it. The result is "over-engineering", technology which is so complex that there is a lot go to...

Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

As far as I remember, after buying the printer I had to download a driver from the Epson website. Can't remember the precise way I did that. This time, when a message came up that "the driver is unavailable" and I then discovered that the driver seemed to have been deleted from the PC's De...

Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

That's why I posted a message on here, in the hope that someone might recognise the problem .. obviously not. Never mind, there are other good computer forums which I will have to try.

Printer problems are common, this may well be quite a simple one to resolve - we'll see.

Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

Epson Expression Home XP-432. Two years old. Thanks Richard and I am of course quite prepared to buy a new printer if this one is truly worn-out and kaput. But it is not old and no problems before - it seems immoral to chuck it out if it has only a trivial fault, or more likely the software update m...

Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

Not doing well! I managed to find Epson's printer drivers and downloaded the one for my PC - got a message to say that "The printer driver cannot be installed". Very difficult to find possible answers to the problem, the website is vast and mainly tries to sell you more products ..

Re: Help please! Epson printer won't print

As a follow-up to the above, I checked Devices on the PC and, against the Epson printer, there is now a message saying that "the driver is unavailable". It seems incredible that the software download might have disabled or removed the driver - not sure where to go from here!

Help please! Epson printer won't print

Would anyone know what this problem might be, please? I have an Epson printer and very recently allowed the software to be updated (I now have an icon on the PC desktop called Epson Printer Connection Checker). I now find that none of the many Word documents I have saved into the Documents folder ca...

Re: New Micro-Pub in Queens Road

Good heavens, you didn't see too much flesh I hope?! Sorry about your virus. There probably aren't any real antidotes to colds but I always felt that fruit juices, vitamins etc. helped one withstand the effects better and recover more quickly. Sweating it out seems to work too! Your mother's recipes...

Re: New Micro-Pub in Queens Road

Don't spoil my enjoyment of grumpiness at times .. and don't take me too seriously! I don't mind being led to water (or alcohol) but I suppose I am a bit fussy regarding what drinking holes I actually want to imbibe in. I like the Old Town pubs very much but am not impressed by the town centre venue...
