I've started to get strange blue lines on everything I print! I also tried using 6" x 4" photo papy for the 1st time recently and the orentation/positioning/colouring was all rubbish!! At the same time I noticed that 'Smart Panel' (The front end for my scanner had ceased to work!!!.) I tried uninstalling/re-installing both the scanner and printer... now it's even worse!!!! I've since realized what's happened: All this greif started after an on-line update to SP2 (Windows XP). I've been onto the Epson site and it's no help at all. Anyone out there able to help?? The Printer is: EPSON STYLUS PHOTO 900 The Scanner is: EPSON PERFECTION 1260. Cheers.
