LE 2005 Epson printer not ejecting last sheet

My Epson RX 510 multifunction (New Zealand version of RX500) worked fine with the print driver in MDK 10.0, but didn't work as a scanner. Under LE2005, the scanner works fine, but the printer margins are inaccurate, and ti won't eject the last sheet printed. Any ideas, anyone (NOTE: I am not a command line user, so if you have command line entries, please be exact, so that a dummie can follow ;_) )

Thank you.

I had the cx6400, last sheet ejected on version 10.1. I used to leave the printer on more than off. The red print nozzle plugged solid and had to return for exchange. Now have the cx6600 in its' place. On 10.2 both the 6400 & 6600 did not eject last sheet. Not a problem really because if you start another print job it will eject that page and leave last page of new job not ejected. When you turn off the power to the printer the last page ejects. According to Epson these machines should be turned off except for when in use or will kill it early. I am not sure if this was intentional by the guys who wrote the printer driver, but it is actually a good thing as it will remind you to turn off the printer to get the last page out and the result will be that your printer will live longer. As for the margins, have not had any issues myself, but when you set up a print job, you can enter the properties of the printer, where you can change from color to black and white and the centering of margins. Mine are set at .04 for top, bottom, left and right.

Thanks, Lakota. I appreciate your positive reply. I'll try the margin reset, however, I'd still prefer to have the last sheet out..................just like the old days :-)
