I just picked up a very cheap Epson 1400 with the plan to turn it into a dedicated B+W printer. I've run into an odd issue, and I want to see if anyone has similar experiences. First (and I think this is the crux of the problem) the driver on my Windows 7 machine will not complete the installation. It installs at least enough to work after a fashion, with bands of missing image, but when the software never confirms that installation has finished, and the install windows just hang up. However, everything works fine from my Windows 8.1 machine. Furthermore, when printing from Quadtone Rip, it's also fine. I believe that QTR bypasses the Windows drivers, which is why I suspect a driver issue. Has anyone run into a similar issue? Any potential solutions?
