Windows 7 can't see Epson TM-u220pd

  1. 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.

    Other sites recommend running SFC /SCANNOW

    Hi Scuba 1999,

    Try the Microsoft link below to troubleshoot the issues you are facing with your printer.
    In the link, check the second step for a sub-link for "printing troubleshooter" and run the same. This can fix problems with installing a printer, connecting to a printer and errors with the print spooler.
