I've bought an Epson Stylus Photo RX630 multi function today. I have it powered okay, and connected to the modem okay. I have a Compaq Presario computer and am using Windows 98.
I installed it as per instructions, and the unit itself is working fine...copying, reading memory card, printing etc. The problem is when I go to print from the computer that it keeps giving me the error message : "error writing to LPT1. There was a problem sending your document to the printer. Make sure printer cable is connected and that the printer is online."
When I was installed the driver, when it was asking for the port for the printer to work from it gave the message that it couldn't find one automatically and that I had to do it manually. I've checked on 'my computer' and the driver is the correct one, the Epson RX630 driver. Also the firewall and anti-virus were disabled while I was installing.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling several times to no avail, and the printed and online manuals are of no help.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
