Unfortunately I think that the Ink has dried up in all the lines, head etc. If you aren't going to use a printer for a little while you MUST remove all cartridges & run "Clean Mode" before storing away. If you don't then you run the risk irreparably ruining your printer.

EPSON RX620 PRINTER WILL NOT INSTALL ON NEW WINDOWS 7 COMPUTER


This is where most Pc user fell prey to the new features of Windows 7. I agreed windows 7 is far more secure than any other Operating system that Microsoft has release till now.

But many forget to consider the point of hardware whihc they are going to use in day to day life really support Windows 7.

Only the scanner driver has been release by epson for your printer for windows 7. So there's no work out as they haven't even release drivers for windows vista too.

And you won't find the driver on net as nobody will write the driver program for any printer without the blue print of the printer hardware.

Soory again.

Lexmark 9350 don't recognise the computers when trying to scan


1. If you use buttons on the printer to scan, check your firewall settings. Make sure the "program control" settings allow the printer files. Google your firewall and printer model to get the file names and specific instructions.
2. Check your firewall settings anyway (program control and trust control -- ip address of printer should be trusted).
3. You said your printer worked for a few days. If you're running Spybot on all your computers that might explain why your printer drivers worked for a while and quit. Spybot is a good program, but it sometimes displays scary messages about something having tried to change the registry. The message comes up on a restart--sometimes several days after installing a good program. User selecting "no" disables newly installed (good) program.

If all else fails reinstall the driver on every machine, restart immediately and pay close attention to any firewall or spybot quesions. Search your computer, then Google anything you're asked before answering it.

Hope one of these helps solve your problem.

My printer won't print documents from the computer


I would reinstall the printer. Reload the drivers and see if the pc now recognises the printer.
Heres the latest driver version:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=&cc=us&lang=&product=3301296&#

Just select the operating system then the driver or driver/software combination.
Hopes this solves your problem.

Printer not communicating with computer


Does you PC recognise the printer?
Did you recently changed the USB connection to another port?
Try reinstalling the drivers, 9 out of 10 times this helps.

Brother 7820 Network setup problem


Spoke to soon. the supplied disc failed working the next day.

I think your problem is your firewall!.
Disable the firewall and see if you can print / start it scanning from the brother control center.
If so you know its a firwall prob.

I gave up on trying to configure Norton to recognise it.

I uninstalled Norton Internet Security and then reinstalled it after making sure the printer was printing and the scanning etc could be started. Working fine so far ( a few hours). I am reasonably confident that this will be ok. If the machine has already communicated with the printer then Norton recognises this and allows it. If however the first time you try is after installing Norton it will block it!
