Windows 7: EPSON R280-Windows 7- Apple Airport Extreme

EPSON R280-Windows 7- Apple Airport Extreme

Hello to all,

I hope someone can help with this major printer problem. If this is not the correct area for this post, I apologize in advance please point me to where I should be, Thanks. Here is my problem: Ive got a Windows 7 Acer Aspire Laptop, 64 bit, Epson R280 printer, Apple Airport Extreme. I downloaded the latest drivers from Epson and Bonjour for Windows. Ive hooked the Epson directly to the Acer and have been printing with no problems what so ever. The problem comes when trying to print wirelessly through the airport. It was working fine a few months ago then just started acting up. I would hit print, it would print maybe one page, then start the second page and get hung up in the middle, now it will get hung up at the end of a first page. Lights are all flashing on the printer, “See whats printing” is showing an error message. Its all quit maddening.

Things Ive done: Uninstalled, installed, reinstalled, used the original software disk, uninstalled, and reinstalled using just the current driver, uninstalled and reinstalled Bonjour. Noda! Ive changed IP addresses, port numbers, added printers, turned off bio directional printing, added new ports, deleted new ports, added and deleted new LPT ports. Ive tried everything I have found on the web that has worked for others but not for me. Absolutely nothing Ive tried works. Im getting beyond ticked and ready to throw the damned thing out. What irritates me the most is that it was working at one point. So what changed, Ive added nothing else, what could it be?? Im very stubborn, which is why I haven’t pitch this sucker. I feel Im missing something and my stubbornness is blinding me to what it is..

Any and all advice is so gratefully accepted and needed. Also, Im PLEADING AND BEGGING SOMEONE FOR HELP……………

Thank you all so much in advance. Mac

I might be a little late on this but I was having a similar issue with my HP F4400 deskjet not completing its print jobs also. In the printer properties, under the 'advanced' tab try changing the print processor settings but keep the Default Data Type as it is ( probably RAW type)
Also, there was another step I took but Im sure it wasn't the one that fixed the issue; even though in advanced tab it shows your printer type, click 'New Driver..." anyway and use the wiz to select (or re-select) your printer.

Hope this helps.
Good Luck,
