I have a problem with my printer which has started all of a sudden and I'm wondering if anyone has a possible solution. When I try to send something to the printer it goes to the spool manager but just stays there and doesn't get sent to the printer, i.e the box displaying No. of pages, printer status, ink remaining etc isn't activated. It looks like whatever links the Epson Spool manager to the status/print box has gone wrong. I've done the following to try and solve the problem but without any success: Checked the default spool directory - correctly set at c:\windows\temp Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers several times (both originals and updated ones from Epson site) - no luck at all Tried changing the spool settings of the printer from RAW to EMF - EMF setting not available However, when I try printing to LPT1 through DOS everything works OK. I have also installed a different driver :- Epson Stylus COLOR ESC/P 2. This driver works perfectly though interestingly doesn't use an Epson spool manager but instead prints directly through the normal Windows98 system. Can anyone suggest a possible solution for my problem. Although this other Epson driver is OK is doesn't provide anywhere near as many features as the Stylus 600 driver Thanks very much for any help you can give Regards David - Please do not include an entire message in your response.
