Epson Stylus Color II Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

I am printing from a Windows application. The printer was printing fine a minute ago and now nothing will print. What's wrong?
First print a demo page to determine that the printer is operating properly. If the demo page looks fine, check the COLOR Stylus spool manager to make sure the correct settings are enabled. Check to see if printer is held. If the printer is held, select Queue, then Setup. Note the Spool Directory, verify "Spool to local printer", enable Queue Print Manager and click on 'OK'. Clear queue, highlight Epson Stylus COLOR II, select Queue and remove the check mark from the word 'Hold'. This is the most probable solution. Try printing again from Windows. If the problem persists, make sure that it is spooling in a directory other than C:\WINDOWS\TEMP or C:\TEMP by checking the spool directory specified in spool manager. If the spool directory is C:\WINDOWS\TEMP or C:\TEMP, create a special spool directory C:\SPOOL (or a directory name that you prefer) off of the root directory from either Filemanager or the DOS prompt. Change the default spool directory in spool manager to C:\SPOOL in both queue setup and options. This normally corrects the problem. Refer to Page 3-15 of the Stylus COLOR II Reference Guide for further assistance.
