Epson Stylus Color 660 printer

By lnw1 ·
My Win 98SE is showing a communication problem when printing. It has worked properly on other computers with 98SE. Software Sierra PrintArtist shows stack overload when trying to print. Computer Co. says "not the computer", Epson says not their printer. Have reloaded drivers and software several times.

Determine the setting of the port type ECP OR EPP in the bios. Check your printer cable.

If it's just that software, check with Sierra. I would also change the port type in the BIOS. Sometimes things work different. If it's set to ECP, change to EPP or vice versa. Even try Bi-Dir or Normal or whatever your BIOS choices are. Also set your Stacks line in config.sys to Stacks=9,256 or even increase it to STACKS=64,512 which is max.
