    Epson printer starts to print Word doc then stops


    Hi, I purchased a new Epson printer as my old one started to act up so thought as I would have to buy new ink - almost $200.00 I would just by one of the new eco printers. I thought this would fix my printing problems!! It didn't. The new printer does exactly what the old one did so very frustrated.


    The frustrating thing is that it is not consistent - some times it works perfectly , other times it doesn't. It will start to print, get half way through the page and then stop. The odd time it will start up again but most often it just spews out the paper half printed.


    I have wasted so much paper and ink now on half printed documents!!


    I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer hoping that would fix it - it didn't. I spoke to Epson - they tried a couple of things and that didn't help.


    It's odd as my old printer worked just fine and then suddenly started this behaviour and this new one is doing exactly the same thing so makes me think it is something to do with Office 365 or computer - also a Microsoft product - Surface Book.


    I looked on Microsoft for help - found a page with a couple of suggestions - when I did one the printer did then start to print again and printed the full page it had just stopped half way through but I don't think that will continue. There was also the following note but I have no idea where the "References" are that they say to check!!


    "Note

    Before you continue, see the "References" section for known issues in Word that might match your printer's behavior. If you do not find a match for your error message or your printer's behavior, follow the steps in this article to troubleshoot your printing problem."


    Anyone have any ideas or had a similar problem that they managed to fix?


    Very frustrating . . . .


    Thank you.

    :)

    Epson printer prints pages without content

    Hi,

    I have an Epson 445 printer. It prints fine from PDF, screenshot and tablet. It has stopped printing Word Docs (Windows 10). It prints out a blank page. It does print out the test page OK. Seems to have happened after a Windows update? Frustrating, Any suggestions,
    please?

    Thanks

    Epson print cd

    Normally yes, but PrintCD is an application for Epson printers to print on CD/DVD. It's not available on Epson's site.

    Steve, I sent you a PM with a link to my copy.
