Question about Epson PictureMate InkJet Photo Printer

6 Answers

Selecting the proper driver for the printer

First, i am working on Mac OSX 10.4.11 and i have a Picturemate Personal Photo lab printer. i have downloaded the epson picture mate printer driver. when i got to printer utility setup and click on the PictureMate name, it asks me what printer driver to use. when i select Epson there is a huge list to choose from, but the driver i downloaded is not there. the closes thing i can find is a gimp driver. When i manually try to navigate to where the driver is located (/library/printers/epson) it does not accept this (it does NOT show up in the driver field after I have selected it) How do i select the correct driver???
HELP!!!

If you have the correct driver. Put it on a disk. Then when you are asked for its location, direct the system to your disk drive and install from there.

Also go back to the Epson website and and look up your printer driver under the Max OSX 10.4.11. If you can not find one that will do the job. Contact Epson technical assistance for help in finding the correct driver.

To clear a mix of driver files and get only the latest Intel Core Duodriver
download installed and working properly, do the following:

REMOVE FILES

1. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
2. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
3. Double click on the PRINTERS folder.
4. Drag the EPSON folder to the trash can.
5. Close any open windows.
6. Double click on the MAC HARD DRIVE.
7. Double click on the LIBRARY folder.
8. Double click on the RECEIPTS folder.
9. Delete any EPSON receipts.
10. Close all open windows and restart your computer.

DOWNLOAD

If you have not done so already, use the following steps to obtain the
download for the new Intel Core Duodriver:

1. Go to http://support.epson.com
2. Select PRINTERS under Product then INKJET, then your model.
3. Under DRIVERS & DOWNLOADS select Macintosh.
4. Download only the driver marked for the Intel Core Duo system:

Printer Driver v3.5aAs
Macintosh OS X (v10.2.8 or later), Intel-based Macs with OS X (v10.4.4 or
later)
epson12250.dmg - 7.4MB - posted on 04/13/07

Installation instructions:

1. After download is complete, double click the icon that appears on your
desktop. This will create a disk image on your desktop.
2. Open this disk image and double-click the INSTALLER icon to begin the
installation.
3. Enter password and follow prompts through install.
4. Quit the installer and restart the Mac once the installation is
complete.

Please try the following to add the printer once the new downloadable Intel
Core Duodriver has been downloaded and installed properly:

1. Connect printer.
2. Open Printer Setup Utility.
3. Click ADD.
4. Ensure you are on the Default Browser window.
5. Highlight printer as it appears under Printer Name.
6. Your printer model should automatically appear under PRINT USING. If it
does not appear, select OTHER (not EPSON - which links you to GIMP drivers,
which we don't recommend or support).
7. A new window opens where you can Browse to the hard drive location of:
HD > Library > Printers > Epson > Inkjet Printers
(This location contains all the Intel Core DuoEpson driver plugins, be they
resident or downloaded.)
8. Highlight/Select the plugin for your printer model in the Inkjet
Printers folder, then click OPEN.
9. Use the up/down arrows at the end of PRINT USING again to (re)select the
printer's name, which will now appear at the TOP of the PRINT USING list.
10. Click ADD. The new downloaded driver will now be added on the list.
11. If there are other printers on the list, ensure the Epson is made
default before testing.

If you require further assistance with this particular issue, please ensure
all of our previous correspondence is contained in your reply, so we can
better track the history of this issue.

If you have a different issue, please submit another E-form via our website
(http://www.epson.com), and we will respond in a timely manner. Thank you
again for contacting Epson.

Just picked up B271A for price of a pint, but it doesn't read any sd card I have. Is this because the machine is too old to read newer cards?


Check specification of the SD card. Effectively, some older devices have a very limites capacity to read SD. Do you have a manual? Download if you don't

Epson PictureMate personal photo lab keeps giving me errors when trying to print 0002 and 005 or 0051


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
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

I've lost the software cd that comes with my picturemate personal photo lab, and i want to install in on my mac...what do i do?


Im guessing this is it: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Overview&oid=40942
Go to the link and download the drivers under "Downloads and Drivers Section"
If its not this printer, go to epson.com, and try to find the right model number.
Hope that helps.
