To reinstall Epxon C64 the driver doesn't install.
I bought all new inks, I cleaned the header , I tried aligning the printhead and all things to do in the toolbox. I downloaded an updated driver but it can't update if the original driver doesn't reinstall. I uninstalled again and reinstalled. the driver will not come in. When I reinstall I get the part of reinstall the options only.The driver does not reintall. I tried it from the disk and control panel. I've tried a week, different things. I have Xp .
It looks brand new inside. Not used that much.
I've asked for help/support and nothing yet

Re: To reinstall Epxon C64 the driver doesn't install.
Hi dorothy - it seems you're having a few problems, but it's not clear from you post what the problem is. You can't "update" this driver, you must un-instalI before you re-install. I suspect you now have a very confused driver installation. The easiest way to get over this is to do a Windows XP system restore to a date before you first tried to update the driver. Once you have done this you may uninstall the original driver (use the Control Panel to do this) and install your updated driver. But don't do this unless you really need to. Why were you trying to update the driver in the first place?
If a system restore is not possible, try the following procedure. Click on start-control panel-printers and faxes. Do you have more than one copy of the printer installed? If so, we will uninstall all of them. But FIRST, make sure there are no jobs left in the print queue. Double-click each printer icon in turn and delete/cancel all print jobs listed. Then delete each "copy" of the printer (right click-delete the icon) except for the original one, which you uninstall using the Control Panel-Add/remove Programs-Epson Printer Software. After you have done all this, turn OFF the printer, reboot the computer and then re-install the printer. Make sure you keep the printer turned off until the installation program asks you to turn it on.

Remove the Cartridges ( bottom left side of printer ) and clean the electrical ( golden contacts ) and put them back in. Remove the Printhead ( Open the Printer cover and you will find the Carriage that moves. Lift the latch and clean the electrical contacts ( golden contacts ) with lint free cloth
Reinstall the Printhead and wait for printer to respond. IT should fix the issue.
This sounds like a printhead problem.
The first thing I would try is to clean the printhead. Remove the cartridges and store them (stretch a piece of plastic electrical tape over the ink cartridge hole to keep the ink from drying out).
Remove the printhead and set it in warm distilled water and let the printhead sit overnight.
Remove the printhead from the water and blot the water with a clean lint free dry cloth (do not rub the printhead and contacts, or damage could occur. Set the printhead aside to air dry.
Once the printhead is dry, reinsert the printhead, remove the tape from the ink cartridges, reinsert the ink cartridges. Test print. This should clear the problem.
We can try a more aggressive cleaning solution of the distilled water doesn't clear the problem.
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.
The following may work: remove all the ink supplies. Remove the printhead and soak it for about 5 minutes in 0.5" of very hot water. Gently blot the printhead on a soft damp paper towel to remove the excess water, then replace in the printer and then reinstall the ink supplies.
Over on the right is not waste ink pads, waste ink is under the print engine covering the whole bottom of the printer. On the right is the purge assembly and there is ink on the filters on top and on the squeegee that wipes the printhead. You may need a new purge assembly, or just re attach a hose in the purge unit that may have come off. That printer is well worth the repair...
