Epson Epson Stylus Color 440

Epson Stylus Color 440 and WinXP Problem

My Epson makes unpredictable stop on the end of page when HighSpeed is ON. So I can't print in iconomi mode. There is no problems when High Speed is OFF. My OS is WinProXP SP2, and my printer is connected to parallel port. How can I solve this problem ?
Dimitar: I'm sorry, but I don't really know. The only thing I can suggest, is that you be sure that you have the latest Printer Drivers loaded from epson.com . Just in case you old printer drivers are possibly corrupted and may be causing problems. You can delete your printer and its drivers and then download the latest available drivers from the Epson Home Page at http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/index.jsp . As drivers are FREE, I usually recommend trying those first if you have a possible communication problem. Bad or corrupted drivers can cause many problems. DEINSTALL [remove] your old printers first and then go to the epson.com web-site. Click-on your particular area, where you live [example: USA]. Then click-on DRIVERS AND SUPPORT and then click-on your particular type of Epson Printer [example: INKJET]. Look under the Ink Jet Printers for your "Epson Stylus Color 440" and click-on it. Once the DRIVERS & DOWNLOAD PAGE opens, read the INFORMATION to locate your particular SYSTEM [Win's XP Pro] and then click-on it. Follow the directions and read all the available information concerning your systems driver downloads. Finally at the bottom of the page, click-on "Printer Software Installation for Windows XP Pro [Epson Printers]", or the "Download" option button. After the downloading utility opens, read the download information available, make your choices and complete the installation....OTHER THAN THAT SUGGESTION: You may be able to get help directly from the "Epson Technical Support Department". At least that way you are dealing with a technician thats trained on your particular model, by Epson Company. To see available phone numbers for technical support, go on-line to Epson @ " http://www.epson.com ", or call the Epson Automated Support Locator @ 1-800-442-2110 [press 1, then 1 & following prompts]. If your printer is out of warranty, you will need a credit card, before the technicians can help you, because there is a charge for technical support over the phone. You can also e-mail the "Epson Technical Support Department", for possible free help or advice, at http://www.epson.com and then click-on "Proceed With E-Mail". They state on their web-site, that they "will respond via e-mail within 1 business day"...Good Luck! Denny Conway
