Hey im running Windows 98se. When ever my computer goes to sleep, then when i want to print something the printer says there is a communication error. My printer is an Epsom Stylus colour 460. Any ideas why this is happening? Thanks

Hi Rebel,
yeh, I run 98se too, and have found the standby system not that hot,and a restart is needed evertime, it is used.

Sounds like me..lol...I have had printing probs from Day 1...have had it checked and rechecked..have uninstalled and reinstalled.....yes its an Epson Stylus 460 and I have W98se.....

Some days it will print just fine..others it throws big wobblies.......real hair pulling stuff....I would replace it but finances dictate otherwise right now...besides it does do an awesome job with reprinting photos....

But even when it does show that there is a communications error the silly thing will carry on and print anyway.....most times....must admit that I have loads of scrap paper around here from muck ups....lol
