Question about Nikon COOLPRINT Thermal Printer

1 Answer

Two printers, one computer.

I have a Canon i550 printer. I recently purchased an Epson r2880 printer. Can I hook the Epson up to the same computer? Reason: I want to print 4x6's, 5x7's from the Canon and better quality enlargements from the Epson without having to do any plugging/unplugging. I own a Dell computer with 2 USB ports.

Thanks,
Larry

The answer is yes! You can have as many printing deveces as you want. If you are out of USB ports, purchase a USB hub (please plug the printer directly into a USB port to have the device recognized) then load the drivers. If you don’t have the drivers google “epson r2880 driver” and you will be good to go. You will have to select a default printer in ‘Settings’ but you will be prompted each time you print. Happy computing! Doogie

Epson R2880 trying to change matt black to photo black


There are many solutions posted already - what I do is in photoshop i start to print - even though I cant select the paper I want because the wrong ink is recorded - and I click print preview... then click print. The epson drivers tries to print, THEN detects the NEW ink and sends me back to selecting the paper with the new ink properly sensed. I hope this helps.

Is there something wrong with my Canon i550 printer head?


Normal 0 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
