Epson Stylus C80WN Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
After my Mac G4 wakes from sleep other Macs can no longer see the SHARED Epson C80 printer on the network. What can I do about this?
A:
When the Macs go to "sleep" the power to the ports drops about 2 volts and this can be enough to stop the client Macs from seeing the shared printer. There are two ways you can work around this: 1. Disable the sleep mode among your Macs. 2. Connect the printer to a power hub rather than directly to the G4. This way the printer will not be attached to a port that loses power during sleep mode and there will always be a consistent power to the printer.
