Question about Epson Stylus CX4800 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Scanning at resolutions greater than 200 dpi causes an error message that says the computer cannot communicate with the scanner. This happens after some time into the scan. Epson is on USB 2.0.
There are also times, when printing, that the PC gets impatient with the HP laser printer, and messages that the document did not print, but it is still printing. HP is on ECP Centronics port.
I suspect that there is a timeout somewhere, but I don't know what to change. This is a home-built PC: ASUS mobo with AMD 2 GHz Athlon 64 X2, 667 MHz memory, XP Home Edition SP2.
The scan problem is lesser (I can use a higher resolution) when using a slower HP laptop.
Good to know you downloaded the driver. If you would do something for me: Go to Epson's website and download their driver for the CX4800. This driver may be updated on the website from yours. Also, see if there is a new firmware for your printer. If there is, download that as well. If you say that connections are fine, then the cables shouldn't be the problem. Good luck and let me know how you did!

Not sure how you're removing the driver, but if you go to control panel device manager remove the printer totally as an option; reboot and then reload the printer. You also need to identify the remote printer in the print sequence or as your default printer in set-up (device manager). Hope this helps.

if the unit is directly connected via USB, another program or prev installed scanner software is using "the path" to communicate with the scanner. Can only use one scanner at a time with windows.
