Question about Epson Stylus RX580 InkJet Photo Printer

2 Answers

Cannot discover the RX580 printer

I tried to installed the software that comes with the RX580. When asked to connect the USB cable from my laptop to the computer, the software kept saying that it cannot find any printer.

THen I tried to connect via blue tooth. I plugged in the Trendnet TBW-105UB bluetooth adopter, the communicate was able to find the printer but no services were displayed.

Then I tried to add a new bluetooth printer from Printers and Faxes. It could find any bluetooth printer either.

At this point, I am uable to connect to the printer either directly via a USB cable (I tried two different cables and still go the same problem). And I am also unable to add the printer as a bluetooth printer even though the bluetooth devices program in the Control Panel successfully found the printer, I am still uable to add the printer from Printers and Faxes. I also thought about connecting it through Ethernet and plug it into my router, but I am not seeing any ethernet/network connection port anywhere in the printer.

I bought this printer to print from my PC. The way it is now, it is pretty much useless to me. Please help.

When installing the printer click on local printer and uncheck the box below it. I think it says something like locate my device. then on next screen click create new port, you should see USB001 in there.

How do i connect my laptop to my printer so i can print things of my laptop


I will try to guess that you want your printer connected to your laptop as wireless.
-first you need to prepare all the things needed and make sure that you connected/installed the cartridges and you have located the port where your power cable needs to plug-in.
-2nd I hope your laptop does have an optical drive (CD/DVD drive).
-on the package of your printer there should be a drivers disk.
-you need to enter the drivers disk on the optical drive then just let it run.
-when you have the GUI of the driver there is an option to install everything.
-make sure that you did not connect your USB cable to the laptop if theres any.
-when running the driver it will come to a point where it will ask you to connect the printer (USB, Network, Wireless)
-if you have the USB cable, use that cable first to connect after you turn on the printer.
-later after the installation was completed, run the disk again then there should be an option to convert the connection from wired to wireless.
-if you dont have the USB cable comeback to me then I will give the the steps to connect it using wireless connection.

Make sure the printer is switched on when you connect the usb cable.

You can connect the USB cable without installing the software first. If you do this then Windows should detect the new hardware and try to install the drivers. If this does not happen then your printer is not communicating via the USB cable. Check the cable. If this os OK then the printer may be faulty.

Maybe its just the connections. check your usb cable if connected properly. or try to use the printer in windows environment to make sure that your printer is ok.

I Want a driver for my WIPRO LQ 1050 PLUS DX DOTMATRIX PRINTER AND MY OPERATING SYSTEM IS WINDOWS VISTA. please guide me how this will work out... I have a usb cable connected to my laptop.. Nikul


If you have the CD which you might have received with the printer go ahead an install the driver software using the CD.

If you don't have the driver CD to install the Printer Driver go to this website to download the driver for the same.

If you are install the printer using the CD, try not to plug in the usb cable in the begning/ the driver software will ask you to connect the usb cable so try to connect it at that time.

I can't get the down load for the Lexmark x1240 to work. I have down loaded it but when I try to get the computer to recognize the printer, it doesn't or it doesn't let it connect


Did the drivers install completely?

If so, try plugging the printer USB cable in a different USB socket, one that you did not plug the printer into before. If you don't have a "fresh" free USB socket, you can always swap plugs with the mouse for example.
Te computer should discover your printer and use the already installed driver.

If the driver did not install at all, try installing it again with the printer unplugged from USB, and plug it in to a "fresh" USB socket (as described above) only when asked to by the installer software.

Ink cartridges wont accept in Epson D120 printer


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Normal 0 Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Epson RX580 Communication Error During Install


Hey...

I ran into a similar problem (okay, the same problem), and my problem turned out to be my USB cable. I was using an extender. When I ran the cable to the PC without the cable extender, my problems disappeared. If you're not using an extender, you might just try a different USB cable.

Hope that helps...
