Epson partial printing problem - weird
Mar 20, 2004

Weird problem. My Epson 1280 every once and a while just prints about half a print. Nothing locks up, nothing stops, paper ejects normally, just like the system is only processing a half page worth of data.

I'm using PS to process, Qimage to print, but I've been using these for years.

Problem sticks with a given image. That is, the same image will print partially over and over again. I opened this image in PS, made some trivial change, resaved it, rebotted the machine, now image prints fine. Almost like there was something in the image itself that stopped the printing or processing problem.

No big deal, only happened once, but now a week later it's happened with a second image. Gets kind of tedious and expensive troubleshooting since I'm trying to print a 11X14 image.

The problem is either PS embedded something hidden in the image, Qimage is not processing the image correcly, Windows XP is not handling the print file/buffer correctly, or the Epson locking up in some way.

Anyone else ever see this?
