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.

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.

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.
