I have an Epson PX700W printer. I have connected it to the laptop using 2 USB dongles. Using the bluetooth software that came with the dongles I have found that the printer is connected and recognised as a printer. I added the printer to the control panel printers section and made it default. I have downloaded and installed the drivers and software that is neccessary for it to work.
However when I press print (test page is the same) the document pops into the printer queue, and the Epson software registers it as printing. Fine you might think, except the printer does absolutely nothing.

<p>Bluetooth wireless technology allows many devices to connect
wirelessly to computers, keyboards, mice, speakers and even other computers.
Most desktop computers come with Bluetooth pre-installed adapters, allowing
many to purchase and install an external Bluetooth dongle adapter. These
dongles are usually connected to an available USB port and automatically
installs without much fuss, but there is the possibility of going wrong,
because usually when people and computers interact. Fortunately, hiccups are
usually quite easy to solve. <br />
<p>1. Unplug the dongle on the computer using the "Wizard
Safely Remove Hardware". Look for an icon in the Windows taskbar that
looks like a USB connector with a green circle and check mark next to it. Wait
a few minutes, and then reinsert it. This will cause the drivers are loaded on
your computer and your problem. <br />
<p>2. Restart the computer; make sure the dongle is working
properly. Some drivers need to restart your computer before working properly. <br />
<p>3. Download and install the latest drivers for your
Bluetooth dongle. If you are unsure of where to get it, Windows can do it for
you. Open "Control Panel" menu "Start," click
"Hardware and Sound" and then "Device Manager". Expand the
Bluetooth Radios section "from the list that appears, right click on the
Bluetooth adapter, and select" Update Driver ". Select" Search
automatically for updated driver software. " <br />
<p>4. Then remove, reinstall the Bluetooth dongle. Right-click
on the Bluetooth dongle "Bluetooth Radios" from the "Device
Manager" and select "Uninstall." Remove the dongle from your
computer, restart the computer. Connect the dongle back and reinstall drivers
Hi as long as the printer is bluetooth capable then this dongle will pick up the signal and it will then let you use the printer.
you should have no problems using it as long as you have the printer software installed on your computer and you also need to install the drivers for the usb bluetooth once you have done this you need to make sure the printer is switched on then you need to scan using the bluetooth software then just connect with the printer, this will then pair the devices and will let you use the printer via bluetooth
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.
plz can you rate this solution as i have pages on unrated posts filling my page, thanks
activate the bluetooth on the printer ..and try to locate the device using the laptop search for device feature ...if there will be no compatibility ...just get a usb unit for the laptop ...there are cheap ..and it will work ..
The PoGo can connect to a PC with Bluetooth only. Once you establish a Bluetooth connection with your PC, simply copy any JPEG file to the PoGo using Explorer. No printer driver is needed, just copy the file to the PoGo over the Bluetooth connection. If your PC doesn't have Bluetooth, you can buy a USB Bluetooth dongle for $5-$20.
Not really, what operating system are you using? on the printer itself set it to bluetooth settings and dont put n a code set but set it to discoverable, then when printing dont do a file print, instead right click on the file and then on your send to option if your computer is detecting the dongle one option will say stylus rx585- then it will print it. one thing that you can check is as belkin manufacturer if their bt dongle is compatible with epson, and FYI bluetooth printng is for photo printng only. doesnt look as good if you are going to print a document or text docs..
hope this helps, and if you have inquiries email me back if it solved your issue pls rate as fixya, thanks!!!
if you installed the printer by USB, the computer will have installed the drivers for that connection. ( Although USB is Plug and Play ) I,d refer to your user manual regarding bluetooth connectivity, also your printer.
The bluetooth device ( printer ) usually has to transmit signals, to be detected by the Computer. You,ll probably find that if you enable bluetooth on the Laptop. And turn the bluetooth on the Printer ( if Applicable ) by turning on/off or other function ( sync et,c ) the laptop will sense the Printers signal.
Once you have a communication between the two your setup.
I,d suggest unplugging the USB, as the laptops software/hardware, will assume that the printer already has an adequate connection, and will look no further.
Hoipe this resolves your questions regarding Bluetooth Connectivity.
