We have a Windows 7 machine with a SUNIX LPT Port that appears to be working properly. A previous printer (same model) was fried when hit by lightning, but the computer is working normally. We have a new printer and new cable, but windows 7 does not see the printer attached. I have un-installed all Epson APD drivers and re-installed, but get an error Unable to create printer port for EPSON TM-U220 Receipt. Error Code = 1608. Unknown property. Could the parallel port have gotten fried also? If so, is there a way to test it? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.
