Question about Kodak EasyShare Photo Printer 500

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

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.

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

Screen freezes when reloading system disc


Instructions

Back up any important files already on your G4's hard drive. A factory restore completely wipes the system of all files you've created so, if possible, make sure you have another copy of all your files, images, music, etc.

Connect your G4 to its charger. Restoring the computer is a delicate process that erases and reinstalls the most basic and important files of your system. If the computer runs out of battery before the restoration is complete, files may be damaged or left uninstalled. The result of this varies from having to restart the process completely to permanent dysfunction of your computer. Play it safe. Make sure you have plenty of battery left and the computer is plugged into the wall.

Locate your Mac OS X Install CD/DVD. If you have lost the original disc or never received one (a common problem when purchasing used computers), there are a few options to consider. The first is to ask around; if you have friends or family with a Mac computer they may still have their CD. It would be usable on your computer. If this option fails, look online for a download of the installation CD. Some sites offer installation CDs for all kinds of computers, including the G4.

Insert the install disc into your computer's disk drive. Once visible, click the "Install Mac OS X" button. Follow the on-screen prompts to set up your computer preferences and begin installation.

Select a destination disc for the installation. This is typically the "Macintosh HD" icon. Next, click "Options," and follow the rest of the on-screen prompts/instructions. After this, the software is installed. The computer should reset itself or can be manually reset by holding down the power button twice.

When i turn my calculator on it says "RAM cleared". It is then very slow . . . what is wrong and how can I fix it?


Hi yeager anna,

Since the calculator operates slowly even after the RAM has been cleared, I'd say, "Your OS must be corrupt." You need to re-install the Ti 84 Plus OS, ASAP!!! You can fix this problem by installing the newest Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS, operating system. Use fresh batteries when installing the new OS. If you need additional instructions your welcome to read my Ti 84 Plus solutions. I pretty much tell how you can install the new OS with another Ti 84 Plus calculator or, connecting the computer to the calculator to install the new OS. You can view my solution to install OS by clicking, "Ti 84 Plus OS installation." Just stroll down to oneplusgh's solution at that posting and, I cover a lot of topics you may need advice on to install the new OS.

If you need instructions to downloading and installing TI Connect on a XP or, Mac computer click, "TI Connect on a XP or Mac computer." I realize this posting was for a later OS but, this link will take you to the latest TI Connect software and, newest OS too. Once you get the TI Connect software installed come back to this posting and, follow the instructions above at "Ti 84 Plus OS installation."

If you need instructions to downloading and installing TI Connect on a Windows 7 computer click, "TI Connect on a Windows 7 computer." Just follow Procedure 3. You can also get instructions at this link on how to install the Ti driver to link computer and calculator. I realize this link instructions were for a Ti 89 calculator but, they will work for a Ti 84 Plus too. Once you get the TI Connect software installed come back to this posting and, follow the instructions above at "Ti 84 Plus OS installation."

My instructions is geared to save you a lot of hardship. No matter if your having to install Ti Connect or, the newest OS for your calculator. I do not use TI OSDownloader because, TI OSDownloader might not give you the newest OS for your calculator. My instructions will. If you have any questions just post a comment and, I'll respond quickly.

Installed mac osx 10.6.1 and my fuji wont print HELP!


Some manufacturers have not caught up and updated their drivers for snow leopard yet.  You gots ta be patient and wait a couple months or call the manufacturer and ask for a comparable driver that will run off snow leopard. Go back to the previous OS if that was working your printer.  Don't fix it if it ain't broke.

Troubleshooting Password Problem OS 10.4.11


Follow these steps -

1. Start up from a Mac OS X Installation CD (one with a version that is closest to the version of Mac OS X installed on your Mac).
You should first disable Open Firmware password protection, if it is enabled. Hold the C key as the computer starts.
2. From the Installer menu Choose "Reset Password" (if you have Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger this will be the "Utilities menu").
Tip: If you don't see this menu or menu choice, you're probably not started from the CD yet.
3. Select your Mac OS X hard disk volume.
4. Set the user name of your original administrator account.
Do not select "System Administrator (root)".
5. Enter new password.
6. Save.
