Customer Question

I have a Dell Computer With windows 7 installed. Of late I have been experiencing problems when I want to print a document.
It takes a long time ( up to 60 seconds ) for the printer to respond to the "Print" command.
To-day, I cannot get any response at all.
A sign comes up saying "Windows not Responding"

Greetings and welcome to Justanswer.

What is the make and model of the printer and how is it connected? For example: USB (straight plug into your computer) or networked (wireless or ethernet).

Please advise.

Also, the system type of Windows 7 would be helpful (32-bit or 64-bit). To get this, go to start, right click Computer and click properties. System type will be half way down the page that appears.

First, I'd like you to go to start > devices and printers. Locate the Epson and uninstall it from there (right click, remove device).

Then go to start > control panel, locate programs and features. In there, find the Epson package for the printer and uninstall it.

At this time, unplug the epson from the computer.

Go here:

Download the 6.62 driver and run the installation. It'll ask you to plug the epson back in at some point during the wizard, do so, but try to a use a different USB port if possible.

Continue with the install. Once completed, test the printer again to see if it's functioning correctly.
