My sx515w has found router but is permanentley offline how do i get it on line ?


I had the same problem. I read all the help on the internet and tried disabling the firewall on the mac laptop. Infact it was not that. I then read about manually loading 'Rosetta' off of the OS discs supplied with my Mac. The solution is to install Rosetta. Rosetta is the background software which converts PowerPC code to Intel Mac code. While Snow Leopard won't install on a PowerPC Mac, it will allow installation of many PowerPC applications, including Appleworks. Some drivers which are PowerPC only, and plugins for software such as Adobe Photoshop may not work with Snow Leopard.
Put the Snow Leopard disk in the drive and double click the Optional Installs folder, then the Optional Installs.mpkg. Install just Rosetta.
I then saw a blog that said there was a known bug with Mac and Epson - he talked about using Bonjour driver as the default printer - I didn't know how to do it so .....
It still did not work so I got onto Epson WebChat help which was very effective. See the chat below that fixed the problem:

11:45:29 : Steven Wood: Hello Geoff. Have you tried deleting the printer from PRINT and FAX then re-adding the printer making sure that you select either the BONJOUR or STANDARD TCP/IP port?

11:47:03 : geoff: No and although I think I can delete the printer and readd it I am not aware how to select bonjour or standard TCP?IP port - what are these?

11:48:19 : Steven Wood: when you go to add the printer again, bonjour or standard tcp/ip should appear under the KIND heading

11:50:25 : geoff: done that and both came up - added the EPSONOA&F95 (idle, last used) -

11:50:54 : Steven Wood: okay Geoff. Once this has been done can you then restart the MAC and try a print

11:54:34 : geoff: Thats it - done - thanks

Hope this all helps

Steps to Configure Static IP Address for Epson Wireless Printer


The IP address is a specific number allocated to a device, which is connected to your PC network. If you require configuring a static IP address for your Epson printer, it can be possible by using the network configuration menu that you can access via the Internet browser on a connected system. To do that, it's necessary to know your printer's existing IP address. If you have a password protected the device, then you must know the username and password credentials to access your Epson printer network configuration menu. You can call at the Epson Printer tech support phone number and get expert's assistance to do that in a proper way.

Find Epson Printer's IP Address

    1.Click the 'Windows Start' button and choose the 'Control Panel' on any system connected to the similar network as your Epson printer.
    2.Double-click the 'Printers and Faxes' option and then find the Epson printer that you want to configure a static IP address for in the printer list.
    3.Right-click on the Epson printer from the list and choose the 'Properties' option.
    4.Click the 'Ports' tab and find the printer to configure a static IP address. Click on the printer to select it.
    5.Click on the vertical bar between Description and Port and shift it to the right to expand the Port column. Find the Epson printer's IP address under the 'Port' column, which is a series of numbers divided by, resembles and periods 192.168.1.2.
    Configure Static IP Address

      1.Open up your favorite Internet browser on the system connected to the similar network connection as your printer for which you need to set up a static IP address.
      2.Input the printer's IP address into your browser address bar. Click the 'Enter' button.
      3.Enter your printer login information. If it's not password-protected, enter 'admin' text into the 'Username' box and leave the password field vacant. Click the 'OK' button, followed by the 'IP Configuration' tab to sign into the Epson wireless printer settings page.
      4.Find the 'IP Address Configuration' or 'TCP/IP' section and adjust the value from 'Auto' to 'Manual' or 'Static.'
      5.Input the static IP address that you need to allocate to the Epson wireless printer into the provided boxes. It forces the network to assign the selected IP address to the Epson printer every time it tries to connect to the computer.
      6.Click the 'Save' button to apply the settings and close the browser.
      Additional Tips:

      Configuring a static IP address for the Epson wireless printer is not a complicated process if you are a tech-savvy user. However, if you can't set static IP address for your printer even after following these steps, you must avail the help and guidance of technicians that can be possible via the Epson technical support phone number. They will assist you step-by-step to configure IP address of your printer in an efficient manner.

Printer IP Address Lookup


<span></span><b>Need assistance in looking up for your printer's IP Address?</b><br /><br /> Often times we see a networked printer suddenly stop working and you need to find a static (private) ip address of the printer to diagnose further. How do we find IP address of a networked printer? There are a few different ways to go about finding it. <br /> <br /> 1. A network printer with built-in ethernet port usually provides a menu button that will allow you to display IP address assigned to it. You may also try printing self test or configuration page from your printer. <br /> <br />2. If you can't find an IP address of a network printer from the menu display or your printer is connected to a printer server with no display, you may find its address from any networked computer configured to use the printer. To find the printer IP address from a Windows machine, perform the following. <br /> <ul> <li>Start -&gt; Printers and Faxes, or Start -&gt; Control Panel -&gt; Printers and Faxes <li>Right-click the printer name, and left-click Properties <li>Click the Ports tab, and widen the first column which displays IP address of the printers </li></ul> 3. If your networked printer uses DHCP, you may connect to your router and find the IP address of the printer from DHCP status page. The router displays all host machines that are assigned dynamic IP addresses. <br /> <br /> 4. You may also try pinging your network from a computer connected to the network, and lookup an arp table. On your computer, click [Start] -&gt; [Run...] and type "cmd" and [Enter]. Type "ipconfig" to find your network address. The network address is found by performing a logical AND operation on your IP address and the subnet mask. For example, if you IP is 192.168.1.101 and subnet mask is 255.255.255.0, then the network address is 192.168.1.0. Ping your network using a broadcast address, i.e. "ping 192.168.1.255". After that, perform "arp -a" to determine all the computing devices connected to the network. One of the IP found is your networked printer. <br /> <br /> 5. You may also use "netstat -r" command to find an IP address of all network routes. However, if your printer has problem communicating with other network devices, you may not be able to find IP address of the printer using "netstat" command.

Can't select Velvet Fine Art media type when using sheet feeder as source.


I had the same problem, same printer. So with a little checking I found a solution. The paper has to be fed through the single page paper feeder. (See manual to setup. Can be downloaded from Epson.) Select manual/roll in the page setup section when you're ready to print. For instance, I was using 8.5 X 11 velvet, so select letter > then subset of roll/manual. After doing this velvet and other specialty paper profiles were selectable.

How can I get my Windows PC to see my printer(s) on my Mac OS X network?


I am sure this question has arisen more than once, as to just how to locate and use the network printer in your Mac OS X network,so you can print from your Windows PC. After all, the Macs you have in your network print with no problem, why not the PC?

But nothing seems to work, that you have tried. So what to do?

Well, the answer comes with a simple yet very effective technology implemented by Apple Inc., just to address this issue.

It is a zero configuration networking protocol known as Bonjour.

Bonjour formerly known as Rendevous, was implemented from the Zeroconf (Zero-configuration) service delivery protocol and first introduced by Apple in its software with the release of the Mac OS X 10.2 Jaguar system.

In lay terms, what "Zero Configuration Networking" means to you, is that you do not have to be computer geek or guru, to simply install or configure this software, because it was designed for the most part to automatically discover computers, devices, and services on local IP networks.

The "local IP network" being described here, is your own network, whether it is in your home, home office or anywhere you have a network setup.

What makes Bonjour so efficient, is that it can work with PCs in order to work with devices connected to Macs. To use it, all you need to do is install the software to your PC. Macs with Mac OS X versions from 10.2 to 10.6, of course, already have Bonjour as a built in feature.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
So how do I use Bonjour to discover printers on my Windows PC(s)?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It really is a simple as 1 -2-3.


1.) Download Bonjour - You can simply search for it by name through
Google or your favorite web search engine, or
click the link below to install in on your PC.
Download and Install Bonjour for Windows


2.) Install Bonjour - Simple enough, install it once the download is
complete. In the example below, I use my Epson
NX415 printer as a network printer on a Mac OS X
network, that needs to be discovered by a Toshiba
Laptop with Windows Vista Sp2 also a part of that
network.

8799557.jpg


3.) Launch Bonjour to discover the printer(s) in your network -


a.) Introduction Screen:

You will be very satisfied when you see how little
effort you have to put into discovering the network
printer on your PC with the Bonjour Printer Wizard.

**Note: Keep in mind, the network printer must be properly
connected, turned on and functional, otherwise Bonjour
will not discover your networked printer with your PC.**

13fb4f9.jpg


b.) Printer Discovered:

Printer in Mac OS X network, if working and turned
on... Should be discovered by Bonjour right away..

5ac6d8f.jpg

c.) Printer Driver not needed:

A really nice feature with Bonjour:
You really don't need to have the print driver software for the
discovered printer. Bonjour will identify the printer, its
location on the Mac OS X network and will use a
Generic/Postscript identity due to a print driver for the
PC not being needed.

67ab0c7.jpg

d.) Summary of discovered network printer:

Final screen for the Bonjour Printer Wizard. Just click
the Finish button and that is all it should take.

moz-screenshot.png
Done!
Now open any document run a test print..
on and get to printing with the newly discovered
Mac OS X network printer on your PC.

Now, that you know, no more guessing, on how to find
that elusive Mac OS X network printer for your PC.

Happy Printing!

EPSON 1800 PROBLEMS WITH NEW IMAC


While you may have installed it, the generic driver may be selected. Here are all the steps to get you back up.

To remove any previous Epson printer driver files and get a good working install of the latest download for the Intel Duo Core, 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. Close back to desktop.
10. Open the OS X "Printer Setup Utility".
11. Select the "Printer Setup Utility" menu at the top of your screen and click "Reset Printing System...". Confirm resetting.
12. 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 Duo Core driver:
1. Go to http://support.epson.com
2. Select Printers then Inkjet then your printer model.
3. Under "Drivers and Downloads" select Macintosh.
4. Download only the driver marked for the Intel Duo Core system.
Printer Driver v3.0aAs
Intel-based Macs with OS X (v10.4.4 or later)
epson11769.dmg - 12.4MB - posted on 02/06/06
Installation instructions:
1. Double-click on the "epson11769.dmg" file and follow prompts to create an "epson11769_r1800_printer_driver_30aas" disk image on your desktop.
2. Open the disk image. Double-click the "SPR1800Series 30a" installer icon to begin the installation.
3. Follow prompts to complete installation. Restart Mac once the install is complete.
Do the following to add the printer once the new downloadable Intel Duo Core driver 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. For "Print Using" select "Epson Stylus R1800" if this automatically appears on the list. If this does not appear, select OTHER (not "Epson" - which links you to GIMP drivers, which we don't recommend or support). NOTE: if you are using a firewire connection, the printer name may appear as a letter only - ie "E" for "Epson". This is normal.
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 Duo Core Epson 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.
When you are working with a printer model which supports borderless and/or roll paper printing options, you will be able to select these options in the program you are printing from as you set up your print job.
1. Once you have an image or file open, go to File > Page Setup.
2. For "Format For" select the Epson printer name (rather than "Any Printer").
3. Select the appropriate Paper Size. If your printer supports different layout features, each paper size will have several different options. For example, the 4x6 paper size will have an arrow pointing right which offers choices of 4x6 Borderless, 4x6 Standard-Minimize Margins, etc. Pick the paper type plus layout/margin option you want to use here.
4. Click OK on Page Setup. You are now ready to print.
