I know it says printing problems solved, but today I wanted to print some tax forms and the dialog got as far as showing the file loading into the printer after accepting the Preview. Then it stopped. So at least for the Epson 3800 on Win 7, it won't work. However, it did print on an Epson Workforce printer on XP SP3. Both computers have the latest update.
One difference: with the 3800, I get asked if I want to save it and I have to say yes. The save is another file this time the extension is .prn which nobody can read. Or print.
I have the latest driver on the 3800, and it works in CS6 fine and also Open Office.
It seems that "Print to file" option is in checked state at your machine. Launch print dialog and then clik on Advanced Button. Uncheck the "print to file" checkbox and you should be good to go.
Thanks, Atul. I've noticed this check box on other programs as well, and it's usually unchecked. The Win 7 computer is checked, the XP isn't.
What is the purpose for Print to File and how is it used if no program reads it? Why does it not print when checked?
I hope the issue is resolved. Am i correct?
Print to file is basically used to create device specific postscript file or the .prn files which can later be consumed or worked upon based on the needs.
Correct. The 3800 now prints a pdf.
I've never understood the print to file. Why would I want to send it to a file when I already have it in a file ? (Rhetorical question, no need to answer that!)
