Windows Vista should automatically detect and install devices attached to the computer. Simply connect the printer to your computer and power it on.
If the driver does not automatically install, you can follow the steps below to install a resident driver which is part of Windows Vista. The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.
1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL and PRINTERS.
2. Click the ADD PRINTER button. If you do not see ADD PRINTER, right-click in the PRINTERS window and select ADD PRINTER from the menu.
3. The ADD PRINTER wizard window will appear select Add a Local Printer.
4. Select the port the printer is connected to from the drop down window beside Use an Existing Port, click NEXT.
5. In the next window select EPSON under Manufacturers and your printer model under Printers.
6. In the Type a Printer Name window, Set as Default is automatically selected. If you, have another printer that will be the default simply remove the check and click NEXT to install the driver.
7. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer and that the printer is ready to print. Click PRINT TEST PAGE to test the printer.
8. Once the test page has printed, click FINISH to exit the wizard.
*NOTE:
-Depending on your system the computer may ask for your Windows disk, if so insert your Windows CD into your CD-ROM drive and click OK.
-As the driver is part of Windows Vista, there is no Status Monitor available for your printer. Some printers may have an INK LEVELS options included as part of the resident driver. Otherwise, the printer does have its own indicators. The RED error light will flash when the printer is low on ink and go solid when it is out.
-If the ink levels do not appear, click GET INK LEVELS from the MAIN tab of the printer driver. Ensure the printer is directly connected to the computer as the Ink Levels does rely on full bidirectional communication.

I just upgraded my computor windows 7. And it deleted my epson 1280 printer. How do get it back. wmizikar@zoominternet.net


Some older printers don't have a driver (software that tells the PC how to work the printer) for Windows 7. This website is Epson's Support site, and lists a driver that it says is "compatible" with windows vista.

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?cookies=no&oid=14387&infoType=Downloads

sometimes Vista drivers will work with Windows 7, but not always. Choose either the 32-bit driver for Vista, or the 64-bit driver for vista, depending on which edition of Windows 7 you are using.

If that doesn't work, then you unfortunately either need a new printer, or you need to hook that printer up to a computer that is running Windows vista or older.

Epson Color Stylus 400/Windows7 Desktop will not"talk" to Printer Printer check per manual is okay Documents queued up to prinb but nothing happens What do I check? Gazza


If it's the same one that I know, that printer is far too old. Epson does not have any drivers for Windows 2000, XP, or Vista, let alone Windows 7.
You will need a new printer my friend.

Incompatible with Vista


  1. Uninstall your Epson and than disconnect it from your PC.
  2. Download drivers and other utilities suiting your Vista version (32 or 64 bit) from here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=58606&prodoid=56291067&infoType=Downloads&platform=Windows
  3. After installing this printer driver, please be sure to download and install the TWAIN Driver and EPSON Scan Utility before connecting this unit to your computer. You can download TWAIN driver from that same address.
  4. Connect your Epson to your PC.

Epson C60 Stylus Status Monitor Does Not Work On Windows Vista


I ve been having the same problem with my Epson 1290 and Windows Vista! It works fine but I cant get the status info on my ink levels. Its so annoying when u run out of ink the LED on the printer goes on but you dont know whick cartridges to replace! I hope Microsoft and Epson get this sorted out because it so annoying and I end up spending more money on inks than needed! I read someone had similar problem, installed the 1290 M driver (via Vistas set drivers) but it didnt work for me!

any other suggestions?
