Learned Something New About Old Printer
4

This might be old news to some but today I learned something new about my old Epson 1400.  I resurrected the 1400 after a period of dormancy and set it up on a Windows 10 machine.  Got good nozzle checks and thought everything was good to go.

The printer would start printing normally and then at the 3/4 mark it would stop and spit out the paper.  These were letter sized sheets.  Smaller prints caused no problems, so I figured it was a spooling problem.

I tried to search the forum for answers with no luck so I used the built-in Windows troubleshooter to see if I could get a clue.  Sure enough, It told me that since the printer is older hardware and I had it connected to USB 3, it might not be able to handle the faster data of USB 3.  It suggested I connect it to a USB 2 port.

That solved the problem.  Windows might be smarter than I thought   .;-)
