    The Epson help center states they do not have a driver I can download for my PHOTO 1280 that is "workable" on Windows 7. I need to know how to get Windows 7 OS to assign a driver to my printer.

    FixYa has sent me to the Epson store to download a driver, however, Epson reports there is not driver download for my 1280. What else can I do?

Hello.

Your printer was first manufactured 9 years ago and Epson has written drivers for Windows 95 operating system through Vista. But, not Windows 7.

Although this is not the answer you seek, since there is no Windows 7 driver for your printer, you will not be able to use this printer with your computer.

Hope this helps.

    Thank you for your honest answer. I'm not happy, but I guess there is nothing to do about at this time.

    Hi thanks for your reply, i just wanted to say since windows 7 is the latest version of operating system it is not design to work with all model of printers so at the moment there is drivers available for your model of printer.

  • Hilton Bristol Jun 07, 2010

    Hi thanks for replying, in this situation i will give you the best advice,you can either install windows xp or windows vista on your computer or you can use a printer that is compatible with windows 7 it is better to use a printer that is compatible with windows 7 because Epson will not create any drivers for your printer that can work with windows 7 because they are looking to sell more modern printers.


    Thank you

Havnt used my epson 1280 printer for awhile tryiny to re install it the cd doesnt recognise my windows now.


You've probably upgraded to Windows 7 and your printer wasn't made for it. Go online and find W7 drivers for it, if that doesn't work clean the CD. If that doesn't work you probably have to buy an new printer.

No drivers for Epson Stylus Photo 1200 printer for Windows 7


The driver for this printer comes with Windows 7. Use the "Add a Printer" wizard from Win 7 to install. After that, it should print fine.

Looking for win 7 driver for 1280 printer. what do i download?


The Vista driver will work just fine. There isn't a big difference between Vista and Windows 7, they share the same drivers. This is a link to Epson's drivers.

Is there a windows 7 driver for the Epson 1280???


There is no specific Windows 7 driver but you can download the latest version of Epson EasyPrint for Win 7 at the following Epson support link

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=14387&prodoid=28907797&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows&x=26&y=10

The current official word on drivers is to continue to use the Vista 32bit driver until one is released for Win7.

I cannot access the print preview screen. Printer is Epson Stylus Photo 1280, OS is Vista


Best bet is to reinstall the software and drivers.

The printer is rated to work with vista.

Usually when something doesn't work on the software end a bad installation is the cause.

Try to uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
Be sure that the device is not connected to the computer until the software prompts you to plug it in
