Bluetooth will not set up with Mac OS X

Hi there, Having followed the manufacturer's instructions (from the manual), and having tried to install and re-install this printer to use via Bluetooth, I am having no luck. I can get to a point where it SEES the printer, but will bonk out as it says "Driver Not Installed" -- well, the driver IS installed to use it via USB, but it won't let me add a new driver version via BT. I can even get to a point where I am asked for the PIN to pair the BT device. Still, it won't go further than that. Has anyone experienced this problem? More importantly, does anyone have suggestions for how to either make the wizards work or create a driver manually? I'd really appreciate it. We love the printer and I would like to make it easier for my wife so that she can print without a cable (a luxury, I know). thanks, NEM

Re: Bluetooth will not set up with Mac OS X

I have the same problems, and I can't seem to get in touch with Kodak. I even was able to update the printer's firmware, but still can't print with it, USB or BT.

Re: Bluetooth will not set up with Mac OS X

NEM, Are you logged in as root or administrator? You may want to start from scratch. Wireless is sensitive. Uninstall the printer and reset the bluetooth settings. Then reinstall. Make sure your speakers aren't to close to the printers...trans/rec window. Tim

How do I install driver for Kyocera CS 5035 on MAC

Kyocera and Copystar models are the same just replace KM with CS.

The following instructions should help you. TO download the current driver use this link to th emanufacture website;

Kyocera Printer Drivers and Mac OS® X 10.5 Leopard FAQ:
Is the installation for Mac OS X 10.5 the same as for Mac OS X 10.4 and earlier? Mac OS X 10.5 introduced a new printing architecture that requires changes to the installer and installation process. For this reason, Mac OS X 10.5 requires a new printer driver installer.

I cannot see my Kyocera AppleTalk® printer. How can I make it visible to OS X 10.5? AppleTalk is disabled by default in Mac OS X 10.5. Enable AppleTalk to discover your Kyocera printer.If you use the Kyocera installer, a message will appear, asking you to enable AppleTalk. Click Yes to continue the installation.

I cannot find Printer Setup Utility on Mac OS X 10.5. Is it still supported? Apple has removed Printer Setup Utility from Mac OS X 10.5. To install a printer, open System Preferences and click Print & Fax.

When I manually install a printer, multiple PPD files are listed for the same Kyocera model. Which should I choose? When manually installing a printer or changing a PPD for a installed printer, both Linux and Mac OS X PPDs are listed for some older Kyocera models due to a change in PPD handling in Mac OS X 10.5. Linux PPDs can be identified by the word Gutenprint in the PPD filenames.

Supported Multifunction Printers: KM-1650, KM-1815, KM-1820, KM-2050 ,KM-2530 ,KM-2550, KM-3035, KM-3050, KM-3530, KM-4030, KM-4035, KM-4050, KM-4530, KM-5035, KM-5050, KM-5530, KM-6030, KM-6330, KM-7530, KM-8030, KM-C830, KM-C830D, KM-C850, KM-C850D, KM-C2520, KMC2525E, KM-C2630, KM-C3225, KM-C3225E, KM-C3232, KM-C3232E, KM-C4008, KM-C4035E, CS-1650, CS-1815, CS-1820, CS-2050,CS-C2525E, CS-2550, CS-6030, or newer.

Need to install Lexmark X4550 but only have MAC disc am on vista

Are you trying to install the Lexmark X4550 to your Mac computer? What is the exact OS of your Mac (i.e 10.3.x; 10.4.x or 10.5.x)?

You have to make sure that the pinter is compatible with the OS that you have.

I don't have a doubt with the printer since you mentioned that it worked with XP. To install the printer to your Mac, please follow the steps below:

If your printer does not appear in the Printer pop-up menu, find and install the appropriate driver. Check any CD-ROM discs included with the printer, or the website of your printer's manufacturer. Only users with an administrator account can install software.

Tip: You can also open the Printer List window from Printer Center (Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier) or the Printer Setup Utility (Mac OS X 10.3 Panther, or later).

Check the Printer menu again after installing the software. If the printer does not appear, you may need to do this:
  1. Make sure the printer is connected to your computer, plugged in, and turned on.
  2. For Mac OS X 10.2.8 or earlier, from the Printer menu in the print dialog choose Edit Printer List. The Printer List window appears.
  3. For Mac OS X 10.3 or later, choose Show Printer List from the View menu. The Printer List window appears.
  4. Click the Add Printer button.
  5. Choose USB from the first pop-up menu.
  6. Select your printer from the list.
  7. Click Add.
  8. Close the Printer List window.
If the printer will not work, you may download the driver from the Web and install it. Here, I have provided you the link where you can download the printer driver:

Just click the download button and install it.

Have a great day!
