Question about Epson Stylus CX9400 Photo Printer
I am on a wireless network in my home. I've had numerous printers, faxes and external hardware connected. In other words, the network works fine. However, my husband has connected a new Epson CX9400. It prints from his desktop, it prints from my wireless laptop, but my desktop cannot get it to print documents. The previous 2 computers use Vista, my desktop uses XP. I have removed and reloaded the driver (via CD) several times. I have my laptop and desktop sitting side-by-side comparing ports, sharing, etc. When I set the port on my desktop to USB002 virtual printer port (set the same as the laptop and my husband's desktop), I get a message upon sending a test print that says "Attempting to connect to a different device from that specified in the driver. Check the driver settings and the device." I have let the driver install select the port to be LPT1. I don't get this message, but it also does not print the test. What else can I try? I'm going in circles here. Thanks.
Not sure how you're removing the driver, but if you go to control panel device manager remove the printer totally as an option; reboot and then reload the printer. You also need to identify the remote printer in the print sequence or as your default printer in set-up (device manager). Hope this helps.
