We have one of those all in one units now, our third printer. The first we gave away to a friend. It was a waste of money buying the second as it was not much better and it being an Epsom, tried to restrict us in many many ways. It tried to make it difficult for us to use non Epsom ink in it. We gave that one too to friends.
I am increasingly impressed by new technology. It seems much better that the old stuff, more reliable etc. I put our all in one in this catergory. It prints, scans, copies and can fax. It works efficiently and quietly and the cost of ink is quite reasonable.
But a couple of weeks ago, I needed to copy a couple of docs. I put them in, it copied and printed a bit of the first line. I inserted waste paper to continue. Lucky I did. It did this many times as I tried everything I could think of, included closing virus checker and firewall. I downloaded the latest drivers from the Lexmark website. They were huge.
With hardware problems, in the past, I have tried uninstalling drivers and resinstalling them with never any success.
So what, I will waste more time on this machine that I thought was wonderful and is now turning into a huge disappointment.
I uninstalled the software, restarted the pc, inserted the cd into the drive and re-installed the software. To my astonishment, the printer then copied the doc as it should.
It is guess only, but I suspect a previous software update that I had installed from Lexmark's update site. If it ain't broke, don't fix it should be all computer user's motto.
