Got to get better!

I'm now suspecting that the problem with the 1280... is with the 1280.

Let's back up.

I went snivelling home last night, crawled into bed, and cried myself to sleep. When I woke up, Jake gave me big hugs, and reminded me that even if everything is a complete failure, hey, at least I've had a great time the last several months and he still loves me. I blubbered some more, and confessed that my back was killing me (and had been all week), we made pizza, I iced my back and took some muscle relaxants, and things (as they tend to) looked better.

I made a grand plan for today, and went to bed with an eyepack on my eyes to fight my blossoming migraine. (Gotta love stress.)

I woke up and completed my migraine battle with pain pills and lots of caffiene, made sausage gravy and biscuits, cleaned the kitchen, and drove in with my laptop to CONQUER the printers.

I also got up to an inbox of support and happy thoughts from the best friends and nicest people that anyone could ever ask for. That's a fabulous help on things like moods and spirits.

But of course... Collapse )


I am smarter than a computer.


Problem = USB cable. I was using a crappy Radio Shack retractable thingy, and thought to myself... maybe that's the problem? (Since after all, it was whinging on about USB device not being recognized) So I switched the one I KNOW has worked, and viola. Reinstall number 324 worked just fine.

I haven't installed the 4000 on the laptop yet (the previous conflict didn't have to do with that cable, since I was using the good one for that), but plan to after I've got all my orders filled. Print, quick! Before they break again!

April - that paper-sizing problem fix was exactly as you listed! Works great now.

Shoulders and back feeling decidedly urky after sitting on the ground cussing at the install program 323 times, but otherwise in good, determined, go-get-em form.

(Oh, and Epson help is not open on weekends. Because, of course, printers don't break on weekends.)
