Ok if the printer is installed properly, what you have to do is: 1. go to start>printers and faxes. if your printer is installed it should be there (depends on your OS basic steps); if you see your printer in this folder, go ahead and right click on it, select "set as default" or "make default" and you would see a green check mark on your printer's icon, now you can close all of that. When you are ready to print, make sure that your printer is selected and go ahead and click print.

if it works for you, don't forget to rate me

thx

Kodak ESP 52100 All in one Printer...Was working OK thenstarted printed unreadable script using odd characters...any ideas


the priter drivers must have got corrupted (virus). Completley unistall the drivers, scan for virus, and then reinstall the printer and drivers on the same machine.
Also you can install the printer on another pc to check if the printer is ok.
the drivers you installed must be the original driver which you get on the CD

Cannot uninstall - no longer have software. When I try to uninstall, I get message that says cannot find shell.dll.


You could always download & reinstall the drivers from Epson:

Then unistall it again, although leaving the old drivers takes up little disk space and will not harm your PC by leaving in place.

Can't get any of the 4 printers to print.


Go to "control panel" select "printers and faxes". Right clicking on the printer that you are using will allow you to select it as 'default printer', 'delete printer', 'rename printer', etc. If the printer you are using is there and is not check marked, select as default. Check to see if it now works. (you may have to restart computer) If it already is the default , delete printer. If you feel the software is ok and want to try to reinstall, you must first turn off the printer and remove the usb cable. The software will tell you when it is ok to plug your printer into the computer. If you do it to soon, Vista will try to assign its own driver. Which may be you original problem. Isn't vista fun?
