Re: PRINTER WON'T RESPOND
Blueleaf, I checked the EPSON website and there are no VISTA drivers on there. Your printer will not work without the proper drivers. I am afraid that you will have to get a new printer. Just being honest...

Make sure the correct driver is installed. Then attempt to do a test page. If the message to print is reaching the printer some printer light will flash to indicate such. If it flashes but does nada you may have a defective, electrically bogus print cartridge. If I remember correctly on previous Canons, the ink cartridges were only ink containers and not electrical units like on HP printers. If so, forget looking at the cartridge area - the issue could be either a mechanical one or one involving the printers electronics.
Sometimes printer electronics get bogged down and what you need to do is completely disconnect unit from power source and allow the printer to boot up anew like a computer. Often that does the trick.
Open the print queue in the system tray and look at the status of the stalled doc. try restarting the doc. If the printing is a large file it could be a memory problem. check device mgr (Ctrl Alt Del) to see memory usage
To get good answers, you need to write a good question. At the very least, readers need to know the make and model of your printer, or as you have posted this in Laptops, the make and model of the laptop. Have you tried printing a test page? Have you unplugged the power, counted to 10 and reconnected it? Have you looked in Control Panel, Printer/Properties to see if the ink tank or toner cartridge is empty. Have you run any diagnostics from there?
Most likely the ink cartridges for this printer have a chip on them. This chip tells the printer how much ink is left and when it is low or out, you must replace the whole cartridge otherwise if you just refill it, the chip will still report the same amount of ink as it doesn't go by the actual ink level inside the cartridge, it determines the ink level by calculating approximately how much ink has been used while it was printing. So it doesn't matter how full the cartridge is, unless you replace the cartridge or reset the counter on the chip somehow, it will still display the calculated amount not the actual amount.
