No driver, no software, they just plugin and auto configure and in a few second just work! This appears to be separate from the APD. I cant get Windows to recognise the printer properly.

No, create an account now. I think from memory there will only be a couple of things to delete, and make sure you don’t delete something that you need.

Epson R printer Firewire driver Problem Nov 27, I know that in that case I definitely had to go to the registry, so I imagine that this is still the case. HP makes the most effort to fully support Linux, so if all other aspects are equal, always buy a HP printer.

If you don’t reboot you will still have the old wrong unedited registry in memory despite your edits to the registry on the HDD. Hope somebody there will get back to you soon. I briefly tried deleting the registry keys but I spent all of about 10mins on it. Not sure where those are since there’s no illustrations. Important notes – 1 Deleting all the software in the way you describe does NOT remove it all, it still leaves behind “stuff” in your system.

Now for my fee for my time giving this advice, You were completely spot on. So I have rewritten my post with more “how fix it” information.


Ub-u01ik the community hereit only takes a minute. Haven’t looked at the DIP switches. I had an experience with POS before; get the system to print a simple X.

Which wouldnt have resolved this problem even if I had done it. Have you installed the USB driver? Yes, my password is: I cant thank you enough. Already have an account? Any tips on where to look in the registry would be appreciated seeing as it being such a jungle that it is! This helped me a lot.

No driver, no software, they just plugin and auto configure and in a few second just work! I have this issue as well.

Just plug the stupid printer in, wait 5 seconds for Linux to automatically configure it and HP make a good effort to fully support all their epskn on Linux, so all things being equal, always buy a HP.

Now for my fee more rant: I tried system restore but it failed and then I proceed to registry deleting which relates to epson.

Windows try’s to mitigate some of it retardedness by automatically saving “restore” points when you install hardware, you may well be able to achieve my manual instruction better by restoring to a restore point, if the system made one at a convenient point in time, which I think it would have.


Unfortunately I cannot run Linux on the machine due to the software constraints I am faced with. If you did, then you will get the behaviour that you are describing here.

Epson USB printer/driver issue

I suspect that is what you 02li done. Most other brand common usb printers espon just plug in and work as well, but HP makes the most effort, hence deserves preferential treatment at purchase. PS Have been on the phone to epson support for over a week, Initially I was told that the engineer would find a printer and try and install it himself on win 7 64 bit, no one got back to me, then i was told he had trouble getting hold of that model but would do it asap, no one got back to me, then I was told this guy had been moved from this team but the problem had been sent to Level 2 support, no one got back to me, then i was told that another customer was having the same problem and theyve sent in their printer so Epson can diagnose the problem
