Trouble with the properties menu

When I installed to my newly issued computer, the properties menu came up a foreign language. My disc is also missing, and I don't have the manual. I "inherited" this printer from someone in my office. How can I change the properties menu back to English?

Hi mlcotte,

Well firstly here's the manual. It's in pdf form so you can save it too.

That'll just be handy to have for future reference.You problem concerns the software. Here it is for XP:

Vista already has the driver support installed.
If you do a fresh install with the XP software and driver pack, the default language will be English.
Try that.

Hope this helps :)

LANGUAGE PROBLEM


The print properties are completely software based and have nothing to do with the printer itself. You've had to have installed the wrong version of the print driver or your operating system is set to the wrong default language. I'm assuming you would know if you were running a foreign copy of Windows so I would uninstall the printer and then download and reinstall the English version from the Ricoh website.

Windows uses a foreign language information file when installing a printer driver via USB. This then installs the associated foreign printer driver and utility files.

This can be corrected with a full uninstall of the printer driver. The standard uninstall will not remove the original foreign language files. Please follow the steps below to install the English version of the printer driver:

Step One:
Switch off and disconnect the printer. Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE (this may be named in a foreign language like 'EPSON DRUCKER SOFTWARE' - when you are at this stage and have selected to 'change/remove' this item, a window will appear titled 'EPSON Printer Utility' - above the icons of each of your EPSON printers will be a 'Printer Model' tab and 'Utility' tab (Note, if there is no Utility Tab then just continue). Please click on one of the printers so it is highlighted, then select 'Utility' - please tick every box listed in the 'Utility' section and select 'OK'. Answer positively to all questions and once the uninstall is complete, you will need to follow the same procedure to remove the other EPSON printer drivers by clicking on 'EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE' again and 'CHANGE/REMOVE'.

Step Two:
Open up Windows Explorer or My Computer, and navigate to the drive (usually C) where windows is installed. Browse to the folders called windows/inf on XP, or winnt/inf on 2000. If you can not locate the INF folder please go into the START MENU and select RUN. If there is any text within this box please remove and type C:\windows\inf and press enter. Please be advised that 'C' represents the hard drive on your PC. If your hard drive is a different letter please amend as necessary.

Find the files labelled OEMxx.inf or OEMxx, where xx is a number from 00, 01, 02 etc upwards. You will need to double click on each INF file in turn, and if it says “SEIKO EPSON” or “EPSON” within the first few lines, then you need to close the file, and then delete it. Please also can you delete the corresponding PNF. Repeat this until all EPSON INF files are removed.

Note: You cannot open a PNF file.

Step Three:
Staying in Explorer or My Computer, stay within the windows folder (winnt folder on 2000) and navigate to system32/spool/drivers, and go into the folder named "w32x86". Delete any folders that begin with "epson", and then restart. Once rebooted, empty the recycle bin, and attempt reinstallation of printer, using the instructions below.

Step Four:
MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS STILL SWITCHED OFF AND DISCONNECTED AT THIS POINT. Insert your driver CD. Double Left Click on My Computer and select your CD drive by right clicking on the CD icon and select open. When you first open/browse the CD-Rom then you should see various folders. Please browse to the Common Folder. Within here select the Printer Driver Folder then choose the WinVISTA/XP_2k folder. Run the Setup.exe file and complete the installation as normal making sure you only connect the printer when requested to do so.

Step Five:
Once this has completed installing, please remove the CD from the CD drive and reboot the PC. The foreign language tabs will now appear in English.

Won't print


if your computer is in a foreign language - and you cannot understand the prompts. try the following.
1 press the setup button
2 press the right arrow key once
3 press the down arrow key twice
4 press the right arrow key twice

that should put you on the languages, scroll through the options until you find English (or your preferred language) and press the right arrow key twice once more - that should reset the language for you
