I have a Epson 3880 printer that was performing fine until yesterday. I have Intel based iMac 24 running Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and Photoshop CS5. Last week I received an software update from Apple for Epson Printers which I loaded. Last night when I tried to print, I got the following message shown in the first attachment. Then the printer control dialog box also changed. Earlier under printer settings I could choose the dpi for printing (1440, 2880 etc.) and also high speed or low speed etc. Now I get a different dialog box shown in the second attachment.
When I press print, on most tries nothing happens, once in 10 ten tries, I get that the message that printer utility crashed but the print goes through and the printer prints the image properly. I have a similar problem printing from any app (Pages, Preview etc.). I tried using the scheduler to put the jobs on hold and manually release them but same problem, only one in 10 or so prints get printed. I have checked LuLa for similar issues but can't find any. A problem report is with Apple as well as Epson.
Also on a separate issue, the printer utility for an Epson 2200 (also attached to the same iMac) I have the Printer Utility 4 but for the 3880 I have Printer Utility 3. I tried to put the 3880 on the Version 4 but there is no way to add a printer to this utility.
I would appreciate any help with the above two problems. Details in the instructions would go a long way for me!
