Windows 7 can't see Epson TM-u220pd

Q: Windows 7 can't see Epson TM-u220pd

We have a Windows 7 machine with a SUNIX LPT Port that appears to be working properly. A previous printer (same model) was fried when hit by lightning, but the computer is working normally. We have a new printer and new cable, but windows 7 does not see the printer attached. I have un-installed all Epson APD drivers and re-installed, but get an error

Unable to create printer port for EPSON TM-U220 Receipt. Error Code = 1608. Unknown property.

Could the parallel port have gotten fried also? If so, is there a way to test it? Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The Epson Perfection Scanner 1250 which is installed on my PC with Windows XP SP2, used to work but no longer does.

A:Epson components of Epson Printer Software Will not REMOVE

I have taken further steps from many answers found on the Google search engine.

(1) I ran Microsoft fix-it on uninstalling problems,and I fixed one EPSON item that wasn't neither of the components that are still listed on ADD/REMOVE.

(2) I went REGEDIT Hkey-Local-Machine-Software-microsoft windonw- current version-uninstall and scrolled down to those EPSON components, and hit the DELETE button.

(3) I then went to C Drive-Programme Files and clicked on three EPSON files that were still listed and deleted them.

I assumed after all of that it would remove all in total, but those entries are still listed on the ADD/REMOVE population. Any idea how to delete these, or even if they are there and it appears that all EPSON components have been DELETED, would it be okay to download the TX110 printer again?

Thanks and regards

A:Epson components of Epson Printer Software Will not REMOVE

I still have the blinking computer saga, but I was able to ADD/REMOVE the four problematic programmes by doing this:

Click Control Panel – ADD/REMOVE

Programme won’t remove/uninstall and an ERROR appears stating “specific module not found” or any other form of ERROR Message that stops the component being uninstalled.

Steps (Before doing anything on each step, back up and restore):

(1) Go to Microsoft Uninstall Problem Trouble-shooter KB2438651 or later version, and RUN the “FIX IT” download, and if it doesn’t “FIX IT”, then do the following steps.

(2) Click START, go to RUN, type in REGEDIT and go to:
HKey_current_user-software and then find FOLDER and DELETE Folder.
Hkey_current_local_machine-software find FOLDER and DELETE folder.

(3) Go to Hkey_local_machine-software-microsoft-windows-current version, then click (+) for UNINSTALL, scroll down to programme-RIGHT CLICK-DELETE.
(Note: The programme or whatever you are trying to remove from ADD/REMOVE many not be listed under its NAME, then highlight the individual “registry keying information” one at a time and the NAME will be listed in the right column, then RIGHT CLICK and DELETE. Keep going down the “registry keying information”, highlighting each as you go find the name of the problematic programmes, and deleting.

(4) Go to C DRIVE –Program Files and click to see if any other remanent files of the problematic programme is listed. If so DELETE the folders sending them to the RECYCLE BIN.

(5) Restart computer and the problematic programmes that you couldn’t uninstall will be removed from ADD/REMOVE population.

I hope this works for you.

But, can anyone give me some information why the computer light is continually blinking as if something is running in the background, like a possible hidden programme, spyware, or virus.

I just bought a new computer with Windows 8 pre-installed and I have been having a hard time getting my Epson Workforce 845 to print more than one page. I have installed the Windows 7 printer drivers (the Epson site suggests these printer drivers since the Windows 8 drivers aren't out yet). Everytime I try to print something with more than one page, the first page will be printed but after that I will get an error saying "incorrect paper size." I've been using my old Windows 7 laptop to print things. Is there anyway to fix this or should I just wait until the windows 8 drivers come out (if they ever do...)?

You can use older drivers if installed in compatibility mode. GO to Epson and see if they have a vista driver, or at worst an XP one.

Cannot find installation disks for my Epson DX6050
I have got the printer working / scanning etc etc by installing a driver that now shows it as ESC /P-R in my devices
Problem is it seems to be stuck on printing best quality ( I assume this because of the speed ), I do not get the ink levels and maintenance options and more annoyingly I cannot get into the print set up to change settings as before. All I can do is basic orientation and page nos etc.

I have searched and searched for a work around but no luck.
Assuming that the original disk fails to appear is there anything else I can do because Epson site does not seem to have the original drivers for this printer.

The driver CD I have says it isn't compatible with Windows 8! I have looked on the Epson website and not been able to find anything!

I did find an Epson SX510W driver which I have installed and got working via a USB cable.

I have used the Epson SX515W on my previous laptop via WiFi and would like it working via WiFi with my new laptop.

I also need to be able to use the scanner too.

I can't find where Windows 8 stores the programs so do not know if the SX510W driver has also installed the scanner driver.

Try manually installing using the driver from the Epson website.

Also, LPT1 is the common designation for a parallel port. So that's why it's not printing.

This is more of a solution than a problem. I was running Windows 8 on my old windows 7 box, and the printer would work perfectly. I then upgraded my windows 7 box to a new MB, SSD, and more RAM and the printer would not work via the USB port. I tried the latest drivers and nothing seemed to work.

Then the light bulb came on...the old MB only had USB 2.0 ports and the new MB has USB 3.0 ports except for the two front USB ports. Moved the printer to the front USB port and it will now work as advertised.

A:installation problem with epson scan onto Windows 7

I have an RX680 and everything is working in Win 7.

I would suggest uninstalling the 680 and all the Epson software, including the printer drivers and the scan program. Physically disconnect the 680 from the PC then restart the PC. After Windows 7 starts, do a new install starting with the printer drivers and ONLY connect the 680 to the PC when the Epson install program tells you (if you connect it first either the install will fail or incorrect drivers can be installed by Windows). After you have the printer drivers installed and the 680 has been detected and installed, THEN install the scanner drivers.

A:Epson POS Printer Driver Issues for Windows 7

Problem is you bought an ancient and unsupported printer. Buying a current supported model would be the way to go.

If you want to try to make that one work, try the TM-88III driver:

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.

I could never used my Epson Perfection 2450 Photo Scanner after I got my new computer several years ago with Windows 7 64 bit. After googling for answers and finding one that might work that was third party and around $80, I packed it up and stored it for years in the bottom of my closet. Today I drug it out, thinking of donating it in case someone else can get it to work. It was a great scanner, and would do slides and great high resolution. Now that it is time to upgrade to Windows 10, I'm not sure if it would work on that if I did manage to get it working on my current Windows 7 64 bit. Does anyone have any experience getting their same Epson scanner working on Windows 7 or 10 64 bit? I sure hate to end up junking the scanner!

Edit See solution below second post I have a WorkForce When I try to run the Epson Scan program I receive an error message telling me that I need a WIA driver Yep lots of those bugs out there While I can work around this issue on my Workforce and have done so in the past it did not occur to me until today what the problem is with Windows and these scanner issues I had previously removed the network access to my Workforce which restored the driver issue On Saturday October I decided to reinstall the scanner drivers and try to get it working over the USB cable which is the way I want it set up AS I was installing the driver I noticed that the scanner driver gave me an unsigned driver error message As installed and uninstalled the driver I decided to run the scanner setup exe after the printer driver had been installed and the system was searching for the printer When the warning message came up I clicked the install driver anyway button after the driver had finished Epson cause 7 Windows network Driver workaround needed Scanner WIA installing I plugged the machine in and allowed the system to load the drivers Windows 7 WIA Driver needed Epson Scanner cause network workaround after which Windows 7 WIA Driver needed Epson Scanner cause network workaround everything worked I was able to run Epson scan with no problems That is no problems until after I rebooted the system The reason Windows won't load the scanner driver is due to the fact that the scanner is not digitally signed Both Microsoft and Epson are at fault with this Epson for failing to purchase the needed digital signature and Microsoft for not providing a white list for unsigned drivers that the user or admin knows is from a valid and trustworthy organization But then such a white list would cause companies to refrain from purchasing the digital signature from Microsoft In a nutshell this is more of a money grab by Microsoft than it is a concern on the part of Microsoft for the security of your system So how do we get past this digital signature issue First if your machine has network capability and you have a home network all you need to do is setup the networking configuration on the machine and access it from their insure that the Epson scan settings are set to network and your device Once these two steps are followed you should be able to run Epson scan without a problem Workaround two is to disable the digital signature requirement in Windows Here are some links to do so Permanently disable driver signature enforcement on Win x Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider b How to I turn off digital signature - Microsoft Answers The third thing you can do is contact your scanner manufacturer and demand that they release a digitally signed driver for the scanner like they should have done in the first place Scott A Tovey

A:Windows 7 WIA Driver needed Epson Scanner cause network workaround

7/28/2012 Edit
See solution below this post:

I did some toying with my system today and found the following workaround that enabled Epson scan to run over the USB port as long as it runs as administrator.

I found that there is a conflict between Epson scan and the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service. To test this on your system, first log into your administrator account. This will just make it easier since Epson scan will only run as administrator.

Open your services panel:
Start - All programs - Accessories - Services

Click in the list and then press the W key,
This will take you down to the Ws.

Scroll down to Windows Image Acquisition (WIA)

Right click on Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) and click properties.

Click the "Start up type" drop down box and select disable.

Under Service Status click the Stop button and wait until the service shows that it is

Once the service has stopped

We need to set Epson scan compatibility mode to run under XP(Service Pack 3)
Right click the Epson Scan icon and then click on the compatibility tab.
Click the "Run program in compatibility mode" check box.
Click the drop-down box and select Windows XP (Service Pack 3).
Click the OK button to apply changes and close the properties window.
Start Epson scan.

If you are not logged in as Administrator, you must run Epson scan as administrator by right clicking the icon and choosing "Run as Administrator". In addition you must run under XP(Service Pack 3) compatibility mode.

I suspect that this is all that needs to be done to get Epson scan working.

If Epson scan runs, right click the Epson scan icon and then click properties.
If the Short cut tab is not selected, select it.
Click the Advanced button and click on the box next to "Run As Administrator".
click the OK buttons to apply and close the options window.

Things to note:
When you disable and stop the Windows Image Acquisition (WIA) service and then right click on the printer in Devices and Printers, the "Start scan" command will not be present. This is not an issue for people having this problem because clicking that menu option only causes the (You need a WIA Driver) error to load.

When you open Epson scan settings as a regular user and click the test button, Epson scan settings will not find the scanner. If you run Epson scan settings as Administrator, Epson scan settings will detect the scanner and show it as ready. In addition to this, starting the Event Manager will only cause the "Epson Scan cannot be started" error dialog to open up.
This is just a work around, so what's the solution to this problem?
It is quite simple. The solution is for Epson to get off their cheep lazy backsides and refactor Epson scan, Epson scan settings, and Event Manager to run as regular users on Windows Vista and above.
If the above does not work take these extra steps: Open Programs and Features from control panel.
Click the "Turn Windows Features on and off" link.
Scroll down to Print and Document Services and click the plus sign next to it.
While I found this unnecessary on my system, UN-check the Scan Management and Windows Fax and Scan as well as any other checked items in the list and click OK.

Hope this works for people.

Hi, having some problems with Windows Default scanner interface. Epson SX410 networked printer (connected to a router and serves a number of PC's, all Win7 64bit).

We have some specific software used to scan customer information into the program, sadly its been designed to use Windows default scanner interface.

The scanner does work through Epson Scan, and a few months ago I had successfully added so it functioned through "Scanners and Camera", accept since then the router has been swapped and for the life of me I can't figure out what, and how I'd managed to do it?

The device is simply not detected by "Microsoft Scan Service".

So the scanner works fine, accept not through the default windows 7 scanning software which is what I need.

Any suggestions?

Ive tried obviously re-adding the printer.

Thanks, James

Hi roby777 and welcome to Se7en Forums

As you can see from my System Specs I have the same model of printer/scanner as you. I have only installed the drivers in my Vista installations, but am using the default drivers in W7. This is the same situation as I had with my previous printer/scanner (an HP model). This had drivers for XP, but not Vista (except for the built-in ones). Apart from the lack of specific monitoring software, I have had no trouble with them. It is possible that Epson might release specific drivers for W7, so it would be worth checking the website ocassionally for any updates. However, since the device works with the default driver this is unlikely.

As long as you have Hardware Virtualization available to you [only about 2/3 of processors have that option built into them] you can run anything pretty much within Windows XP Mode.

However, you also need to take into account that the LQ 870 is a damn old printer. The last operating system it was supported on was Windows 98 & Windows NT 4. So much has changed since then within Windows and how it handles drivers, I'd honestly say you have a 1 in 1000 chance it'll work correctly. With XP mode, given you meet the hardware requirements [you can find out by following Step 2 HERE] I'd say 1 in 5 chance then.

My Epson xp-400 printer is cutting off the top section of my text. I've already reloaded the utilities and drivers, cleaned the nozzles and the heads. It has new Epson ink cartridges, and no error messages.
Nothing seems to work. Does anyone know what's wrong? it is on a wireless network.

I have recently purchased a HP Pavilion PC with Windows XP. I tried using my Epson color 400 with an adapter for the cable, but it won't print text and does a lousy job with pictures. I would like to use the Epson as the HP printer won't feed certain Xmas card envelopes properly.
I wrote two letters to Epson, but have not received any response.
Not much point in me writing HP about their printer as it has obviously a poorly designed feed.
All suggestions gratefully accepted. You people are a great bunch.

Will the Epson C46 printer (USB) run on Win XP without the installation CD (the person I'm helping has mislaid it).
My HP3300C scanner runs on XP using the operating system's drivers and was wondering
if printers can run in the same way.
Any help would be appreciated,

I have an Epson Stylus Color 777 ESC/P 2 printer that I've used for a while now. All of a sudden it's not printing anymore. I tried deleting the printer in Start>Settings>Printers and Faxes and the computer picked it up and reinstalled it when I plugged it in. It says it is working properly. The ink didn't look empty the last time it printed, however it is a possibility. The power light is on solid and the error light is on solid. I've run all the tests Epson recommends and I've tried to print a test page, but I get no movement on the print heads, even for testing nozzles and such. I am confused... Thanks in advance for any help!

A:Epson 777 problem...

No movement is not good. Have you tried removing the ink cartridges and reinserting them/it?

Also try turning it off, completely unplugging it, and turning it back on. If it's connected via a parallel port, restart the computer as well.

I need an Epson C88+ driver.

My x64 ultimate has generic drivers but they don't print on both sides of the page.

I downloaded what epson has on their site but that's only a print program with no drivers.

Can someone help ? It is appreciated.

If Epson doesn't list one then one isn't available, have you tried the XP driver?

Trying to print XL spreadsheet. When I set up the page, the printer changes it. It makes it's own page breaks. It has printed up in the left hand corner in font size too small to read....
Any ideas?

Just purchased an SD-800 to replace a dead dual 3.5/5.25 drive on an old 486 machine. I can use the 3.5 as A: (with some startup problems), but B: is directed to the 3.5 also. The drive came with no documentation and I suspect I need to set the jumpers. There is a 6 year old thread on this problem, but the links given are dead (404 errors).

There seem to be two different black ink cartridges available for the 800:
SO 20108
SO 20025.
What might be the difference betwwen them?
Which might be better for graphics printing?

A:Ink for Epson stylus 800

Epson website shows only the SO 20025 works with the 800, so I would go with that one. click here

Hello there.
Nothing wrong with my printer (Epson Stylus DX4450), per se...
But I can't get it to let me change the ink cartridges!

I changed to non-brand compatible cartridges as soon as I could and am generally happy with them, but the printer can't tell me when a colour cartridge is empty and if it doesn't think it's empty, it won't present the cartridges so that I can change the obviously empty cartridge (I only have yellow left at the moment which is very frustrating.)
How can I force the printer to let me change the cartridges?

As a rule, I avoid Epson printers like the plague. (When I was working as a service tech, I went through Epson training, which was also a joke). Although we purchased an Artisan 810 to print on CD's, I know I will be asked to print some photos. I have experimented with different paper and have found that if you want good results printing photos, you better be using Epson paper. The black ink does not dry at all on Dell photo paper, Kodiak is a little better but still not as good as Epson paper.

Anyone had any experience with this? I am looking for photo paper, either matt or high gloss finish that actually works in these printers without having to purchase from Epson.

The beatings will continue until morale imporves!

Hi all
When I try to scan or copy a page, it prints out with two black 1/2 inch wide stripes from top to bottom on top of the copy.
However, if I print a document from the computer, it prints fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you have a ADF clean the slit glass with windex (or similar) if you are using the ADF, otherwise the bulb may have something on it. I wouldn't recommend opening the glass section up if you are uncomfortable with it

I had 4 pc's connected to a switch box to use one epson stylus 800 printer and it worked fine. It finally died so I got an epson stylus color 900 and connected it to the switch box. Now, whenever I switch between pc's the printer says its 'out of paper' and only after I shut it off and unplug and replug it, will it print on the next pc....any ideas?

have you tried contacting epson to see what they say?
