Windows 7: Epson CX5800F won't print thru computer

09 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7

Tried your uninstall/install instructions with my old Vista printer drivers for the cx5800f just because I am getting desperate and noticed the animation of installing drivers in the taskbar and clicked on it. It indicated that it was going ONLINE to windows update to fetch the drivers I'm thinking there's something wrong with the drivers that Windows is "sending" to my Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit desktop for this printer...maybe???
No error messages during installation. It ALWAYS says that the installation succeeded, but then goes and fetches some kind of update. I'm going to try again from scratch using the Windows 7 drivers from and disconnect the internet while I am installing the drivers.

Okay, that did not work either. Here are some screenshots and I am quitting for the day. I may have to just live with the Epson 860 or go back to Vista. I get no error messages during installation and when I try to print, just nothing happens except a few times the print ink monitor has popped up and either shows the ink levels OR says there is a communication problem.
