    Hi all.... I have my Epson 600Q printer hooked into my Certified
    Data flatbed scanner which in turn is connected to my Iomega Zip
    drive which is connected to my custom built PC via its parallel
    port...all the above use parallel port cables. Have had no problem until I was asked to scan an 8x11 pic of my granddaughter and create some 2x4 and 4x6 pics for their close
    friends. The scanning and downloading to the printer was
    extremely slow but I managed until finally my printer refused to
    print out any more...kept getting an " out of paper " message.
    I took the scanner out of the lineup and now the printer works
    fine. Should I have a switch somewhere in here where I can isolate whichever machine I am not using at the time??
    Drove me nuts trying to isolate the problem......lol.
    Thanks for any help and a very merry christmas to you all......
    The birdog2.

    My advice is go to housecalls & run the free online virus scanner.
    Click here to do so!

    also go get ad-aware... but before you run it... go to start/run type in msinfo32 & then click software envirement then click startup... click edit & select all & then edit again & copy. Come back in here & right click & paste it so we can see whats there.
