SOURCE: networking a mac and a xp computer with a kodak 5500 printer

Hi,

Try a Silex SX-2000 print server - these are different from your average because although they can operate as a normal print server (which the Kodak printer driver will not support - its problem is it looks for a directly connected printer) its primary function is as a networked USB sharing device (one at a time of course !)

Printing works great using the "Printing Auto Connect", because each PC/Mac will connect, print, then disconnect automatically (freeing the printer for other users/virtual sessions).

The only drawback I've found (when tested with Vista) is the scanning is hit and miss. "Scan to" works some of the time, Windows "WIA" scanning works most of the time, Kodaks own software doesn't work at all (probably because its cheating and looking directly for the attached USB device).

This is certainly a print solution though and unlike some print servers, it can support more than one device if you have it, using a USB hub (I use mine to TCP/IP print to a Dymo label printer as well)

I tried the Belkin AIO print server first (available in Europe certainly) an OEM version of the Edimax unit but I'd steer clear of this - hardware is nice (smaller than the Silex) but the software is awful, causing many crashes and blue-screens in Windows.

SOURCE: New Epson RX595 won't print

Apparently the latest software doesn't work with Leopard 10.5.2. I uninstalled the Epson software and installed the earlier version [driver version 3.88] that come on the Installer CD with the printer. Printing now works.

SOURCE: Epson C43SX communication error

It is presumed the 6 posts in this problem are all from the same person. If one (or more) isn't, and my response below doesn't help, would you you start a new separate post on your particular problem.

A solitary blinking red light means that the ink level in one of your cartridges is low, but printing can continue normally until the ink runs out, at which point the red light becomes permanently on. You must now change the ink cartridge before the print will work again.

If the green light is flashing at the same time as the red one, this means the Waste Ink Pads in your printer are saturated with ink and the waste ink ("protection") counter has exceeded its limit. The Waste Ink Pads should be replaced as soon as possible. You can overcome this problem temporarily by using the SSC utility to reset the Protection Counter. This will stop the lights flashing and restore normal operation.

However, remember that eventually ink will overflow from the waste ink area and make a dreadful mess, so you must change the waste ink pads before this happens. This requires the disassembly of the printer. A copy of the service manual is available from a number of sellers - just Google "Epson C43 Service Manual". You will often find them for sale very cheaply on E-Bay. Note, however, if you can find or borrow any of the C40,42,44,60,62 service manuals, as far as ink pad replacement goes, they are the same.

If you decide to have a go at replacing the ink pads yourself, report back and I will provide further help.

The reference manual is at

http://support2.epson.net/manuals/english/ij/stylusc43/REF_G/INDEX.HTM

which provides good information on the meanings of the error lights.

Please report back with further information if the above advice doesn't help.

SOURCE: Cannot Print from on Epson CX8400 from Mac OS X Leopard

I could only get my CX8400 to work with Leopard once I manually selected the driver located at /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/EPSON Stylus CX8400.gz

I think that may have appeared after installing a driver downloaded off the web, but I didn't track my steps carefully enough to be certain. I used http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=90342&prodoid=63069506&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh

I know this is a bit jumbled, but hopefully it helps.

If you are getting a 'carriage jam' error as soon as you turn on your Epson printer with no tasks in progress, then check for any piece of paper stuck in the carriage. Remove the paper carefully. If the paper tears, part of it might remain inside the paper path and damage the product.

Fix 'Carriage Jam' : Open Door, clear carriage jam,
and then press OK to continue' error message
Turn off the printer and open it to see where the paper is stuck.
Manually move the carriage toward the opposite side.
Check the paper path and remove any piece of paper or any other object that is stuck in the path.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the printer.

Why wont my epson printer model # cx9300f print


Okay I would first go to epson's site and get the latest drivers for the device. The problem could be if your using the driver given to you by the manufacturer that the drivers could be useless due to a random windows update. Verify that you have the latest drivers and then attempt to connect the device again. If you continue to get the communication error then the device is likely faulty and needs to be replaced.

1) Please check your router setup whether it does not allow Wireless devices to ping against each other;
2) If it does not allow to ping (communicate) with each other, please disable it first.

4) Please also input your network gateway, sub-net mask correctly into the Epson printer, otherwise the wireless communication with your network will not work.

My Artisan 800 was doing this and I realized it was because I was using three hole punched paper. I think the printer sees the top hole and thinks the paper has run out and cancels the rest of the page. Big engineering goof Epson.

My epson Artisan 700 have error ( paper is jammed in the product)


If you mean it comes up with a paper is jammed in the product error message when turned on, AND you have confirmed that there is no paper anywhere to be found inside the product, then you most likely have a defective sensor or electronic problem inside the unit that is not economically feasible to repair. Epson's web site is not at all helpful for this problem.

Epson Stylus C88 puts the job in the queu and doesn't print


Have you tried running an independent printer check - see

http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/sc88__/sc88__ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

If the printer prints the test page OK, it means the problem is with the computer. If it were a PC, I would uninstall, reboot and then re-install the driver software. Maybe this will work with a Mac?
