Windows 10: USB printer suddenly not seen at all
USB printer suddenly not seen at all
Hi, I recently built a new PC with Windows 10. My printer is an Epson XP-760. It printed fine at first, but suddenly it wouldn't print. The printer showed as active, but print commands didn't even get to the printer's que. I tried other USB ports and cables, reinstalling, but it wouldn't print, but scanning was working.
Now, after I removed the printer from the devices and printers screen, my PC doesn't see it at all when I plug it in. Nothing in the device manager, nothing when trying to add a new printer, nada.
Other USB devices on this PC work as normal. I took my printer to another PC and it worked fine. I also tried other cables and ports.
If anyone can help, I would be very grateful.
