Hello Ray, and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com
Please allow me a few minutes to review your question and reply back to you.
There could be a few different causes for the Win7Pro computer to stop working with the printer.
The most common is the Printer software, and or drivers.
So the first thing you should do, is UNinstal the Printer Software, and drivers if possible (but if the UNinstall process does NOT mention drivers dont worry)
After a successful Uinstall, do a computer Reboot, and then Install the Printer Software again. Using the same method you did the first time to install the printer software.....probably a disc.
Once you do this, let me know if the problem is resolved, or remains
Well, the printer will only print on CERTAIN paper when using in STAND-ALONE mode.
So if you are NOT using the Epson printer software to print....then the paper media selection is limited.
The image above shows the limitations, and Im pretty sure thats the isseu on the paper not working.
As far as the computer Software not working anymore.....did you say this printer was 15 YEARS OLD?
WOW.....i think maybe time to get a new one.....the Windows 7 computers are always getting updated, and he epson software does not.
So the Epson software is being changed, due to the Windows updates being so SECURITY centric. If the Epson software had vulnerability holes, and Windows finally got around to closing security holes......then the software suffers.
You are very welcome.
