Bluetooth Printer does not work properly

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.

Welcome to FixYa.

You have to configure the Bluetooth settings of the printer first. I assume that you have the HP bluetooth dongle on your printer.

Configure Bluetooth settings
You will need a USB cable to configure the Bluetooth settings
  • Connect a USB cable from your computer to the rear USB port on the printer.
  • Open the printer Toolbox.
  • Click the Configure Bluetooth Settings tab.
  • Configure the settings you want, and then click Apply

    Keep me posted.

How do you solve a Bluetooth Dongle Problems?


<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><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><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><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><br /> <p> <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 for Windows.

Will this adapter work with a All in one 5500 printer?


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

Use of polaroid PoGo Zink printer with PC


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.

V220 mouse bluetooth connection to laptop with own bluetooth


You can't; the V220 doesn't use bluetooth connectivity. I believe it actually works on a 2.4GHz radio frequency, so you need the included dongle.

Connecting to printer via Bluetooth but driver is missing


using the bluetooth software on your computer, do not tell the computer you are looking for a bluetooth printer, instead, use search for all devices, then the printer will show-up and select it.

printing via bluetooth does not require a driver (it's just like printing from your cellphone)

Bluetooth dongle


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!!!

Bluetooth not found by computer


Hi Bryan,
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.
