    Open Settings>Control Panel>Printers. You should see your printer there, as well as Add Printer. If your's isn't there, use the Add Printer dialog to reinstall the driver. I have an Epson 600 and had a little trouble also. I think I downloaded a driver from driverguide.com which finally worked. Good luck.
