-   -   Epson R1800 stops after printing half a page + other problem (

petermcwerner Jun 18, 2005 5:58 AM

Pentium 4 SP4 with 2GB RAM
Photoshop CS2 and Paint Shop Pro 7

First, the R1800 was printing a page and when I wanted to print the next page it stopped with an error message. I had to switch it off and restart it print after each page.

Now, the R1800 stops after printing half an A4 (letter size) page even after re-starting.

The problem occurs when printing from both PS and PSP.
Another printer (HP PSC750) prints without problems from both PS and PSP.

Any clue what to look for?
Thank you for any help

Hi Peter,

I just recovered from the same problem. I had plugged the R1800 into a 4-port USB 2.0 hub without using a power adapter for the hub. When I plugged the R1800 directly into the USB PCI card, it worked fine. Apparently, all kinds of problems can occur with USB ports if they aren't configured correctly.

Hope this helps and good luck!
