Right Click on the primter icon and untick "use printer offline" and see if that does it.

Is the printer still set as the default printer? Is it connected via USB or other? If USB, have you tried unpluging it and plugging it back in? Just trying to cover the bases.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
