    Epson won't print more than half a page (XP Media Center SP2)

    Hi Loungers

    I have posted this problem before, but am still stuck...my printer Epson Stylus Photo RX600, will only print the first part of a page of graphics and then grinds to a halt. I have tried all the reinstall, latest printer driver tricks to no avail. Epson service centre here in the UK say it must be my PC as the printer is just dumb (!) and it is to do with the way the data is being sent to it - HEEELP! Is this t do with spooling and memory? I am completely lost and relying on ideas...

    TIA

    Have you tried to uninstall the printer and then reinstall it ??

    Yes, tried all of the printer tricks, that's why I thought it must be to do with the spooling or something. I have been printing larger files than usual too, so thought this might have something to do with it.

    "I have been printing larger files than usual too, so thought this might have something to do with it."

    What happens if you wait a minute or so when the printing stops ??? On occasion, my printer will stop in the middle of a page or a print job and then continue after a pause of several seconds to a minute. I don't know if a spooling issue or a resources issue, but so far [cross fingers], it always continues to completion.

    No, unfortunately have sat it out to no avail either. Do you know how to change the spooling settings? I am sure it must have something to do with that...

    I agree that it is a storage problem - I have had several lasers in the past that if I didn't buy enough memory they would squeeze the image down to postage stamp size and then they would print a teeny image. Can you cut up a test image so that only part of the graphics are on a single page and try that - then add untll it hangs again?
