    Unhappy Epson Stylus color 460 printing garbage

    I have an old Epson Stylus 460 that is now just printing garbage. I recently rebuilt my pc and installed win XP SP2 with all the latest fixes and patches. I installed the XP native drivers but these did not work. I the installed the drivers from Epson themseleves. This produced a communications error and could not connect to the printer. I am also using a parallel connnection. I then updated the drivers to using the Native XP drivers again and guess what more garbage. Has anybody any ideas ?

    check your printer cable or try another 6 foot one. another thing you mite check is for updated video drivers as some printer and vid drivers can conflict.

    If changing the cable doesn't work, look in the manual and print a self test. If that is also garbage, it's time for a new one.
    Never, ever approach a computer saying or even thinking "I will just do this quickly."
