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.

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.

Hello, Please, if you can change back to the former operating, is either the printer type is not compactable with the new windows(Windows7). But first you have to check the net to see if you can try upgrading the software of the printer. Please if you've done this let me know what happened next.

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.

Instal hp dekjet 1280 with hp wireless printing upgrade kit in windos 7


Wireless printers may face an installation problem with Windows 7 operating system. For example, Toshiba laptop is compatible with this operating system yet it may require a driver download for executing a print command on wireless printer. To combat this challenge, users are advised to delete and re-install the printer. If the problem persists assign the wireless printer to a fixed address through a router instead of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Accessing the wireless printer from a laptop with Windows 7 operating system can be a challenge. Often, it may display the printer to be offline. To resolve the issue, users must cancel printing jobs immediately and delete offline printers from the Printers option in the Control Panel. Visit the Printer properties and access the Ports tab, delete the printer that displays the offline status and appears as Client Side Rendering Provider. Delete the Port button and click apply. Restart the PC. Now re-install the wireless printer by visiting the Control panel, opening Printers and clicking option add a printer. Now select add a local printer, followed by selecting the option "Use an existing port", LPT1: (Printer Port). Install the printer driver offered by Windows 7. In the next window leave the Set as a default printer box unchecked and re-name the printer. Click Next. Upon successful installation, the operating system will display the message "You've successfully added printer name"

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.

Red & Green Lights keep flashing on Epson Stylus Photo1280


I had the same problem. You need to reset the waste ink counter:

1. Turn printer off, unplug power cord. Disconnect computor interface cable (back of the printer).
2. After one minute, reattach power cord, but not the computor interface cable.
3 Hold down the LOAD/EJECT and CLEANING buttons simultaneously (cleaning button has ink drop on it) .
4 Turn printer on. Release all buttons as soon as the paper out light flashes.
5 Quickly press the cleaning button, and hold for 10 sec while paper out light flashes.
6 Release the button and the printer will initialize.
7. Once the initialization is complete, turn the printer off.
8. Reconnect the interface cable.
9. Turn the printer on and try to print your document.

This process worked for me. Good luck!
