    strange problem W10 Laptop with Epson xp-400 printer


    I have an Epson XP 400 printer. It works great. All is fine on my W7 laptop and a W10 laptop. But my other W10 laptop is weird.

    If I see something I want to print, turn on the printer, and print, it says the printer is offline.

    But the document is in the print queue. If I restart the computer, it immediately recognizes the printer and the queue document gets printed right away.

    Keep in mind the other computers work perfectly with the printer.

    Suggestions on how to proceed?

    :)

  2. Epson XP-400 printer set to offline since installing Windows 10.

    Since installing and reinstalling Epson XP-400 printer to windows 10 the printer continues to be "offline". Under previous windows releases the option to set printer to "online" was part of the dropdown menu. Anyone encounter this issue and resolve?

    Have you tried Settings, Devices and Printers, Remove Printer and then add printer in windows? Printer needs to be hooked up and power on before clicking on Add Printer.

    Yes; I have done those suggested fixes and still have the problem. Thank You.

    Epson Printer Driver - XP driver installed on 10 - device not showing as printer

    I inherited an Epson Stylus Pro9600(~2003) and would like to get it working for a local non-profit.

    • I downloaded the last driver available from the epson site. It was for Windows XP (64-bit)
    Epson Stylus Pro 9600 - UltraChrome Ink | Epson Stylus Pro Series | Professional Imaging Printers | Printers | Support | Epson US

    • Ran setup in "compatibility" mode for running the older driver and it said the driver was installed correctly.
    • Try to print and the new printer is not available to print from.
    • Checking in the control panel>hardware> "Devices and Printers" the Epson (showing as 'usb2.0 printer') is in the "unspecified Devices" section rather than the "printers" one.

    Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
