Epson DX8450 Set up

The set up procedure I have followed to the letter but it will not print.

I have tried:

  • different USB ports
  • Two different cables
  • switching off the MS Firewall
Every time I get the message "Printer not ready to print" yet it switched on and as readsy as it will evre be from whatI can see. There are no pieces to be removed such as travel packaging etc

Any suggestions as to what I am doing wrong and/or how I can get it to work. It is brand new straight from the shop.

    I have bought a DX 8450, I've followed instructions to the letter, tried two different USB cables, tried all 5 USB ports on my PC ( XP2002), Turned it off and on again so many times I've lost count. Spent 1 hour on the phone to Epson support. Alas no joy. So I plugged in my old scanner using same cable and port, and it worked first time, no probs. So I concluded the printer must be faulty, changed it for another one, Still no joy. PC and printer will just not communicate. Gone through the device manager settings and says all ok. PC even recognises something is new - but doesn't name it as epson printer.



    Any ideas?

Dear sir,

Love to solve Epson printer products;) There's nothing wrong, what you are doing is correct you even tried to troubleshoot. You can even do the self test provided how to in your manual upon purchase. Well to start streaming down the problem; check the BIOS setup of your motherboard if USB ports have been enabled. Change and save the changes. Second. At windows environment check the "Port" properties at control panel system setting device manager if there are some errors or warnings. Install USB port installation update driver if necessary provided in your motherboard installation cd or you can removed or delete the errors and restart the computer, be sure you inserted the motherboard installation disk on CD ROM. The USB port devices shall be detected browse the CD and locate the USB driver. Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Rosener Guyano

Cannot print from command prompt - Epson U220D Windows 7 32-bit New parallel port with driver New centronix to parallel cable Epson driver APD_455dE (I was using Windows 7 64 bit with a...


The Epson works fairly well with XP. It is to be connected to
a parallel port, usually LPT1
using an IEEE certified parallel printer cable. The computer BIOS
setting is best set for standard parallel port, SPP, bi-directional port
or similar. If possible, do not set it to ECP or EPP or ECP & EPP.

The only native driver for the printer is on the Windows CP CD. Install
using the Add Printer wizard.

The Epson LQ-860 drivers, and a few others, can be used. Using these
drivers, you will discover that the printer actually has some resident
fonts (in printer ROM) that are not accessible from the Stylus
driver. However, with this driver, graphics printing quality is
compromised.

Windows 9x drivers _cannot be used_.

Let us know.

Printer off-line


Hello my friend, see to it that your printer Epson Stylus is properly connected to your computer (USB Connection). Mostly when printer get off-line are not Power-ON, USB connection failure, or manually set to printer ONLINE. Printer are detected by your printer initially when power on or you may be hear some sound if the printer is connected or ready.
If not go to Printer Properties and manually select "PRINTER ONLINE". This are some problems that encounter with the printer.

Everything connected trying to print from word document and nothing happening


if your printer does not print from any program in your computer, you may want to have it reinsatlled with new drivers fresh off the Epson website.

BUT if it prints from other programs in your computer, this means that you have not set the printer to be the default in your MS Word.

to resolve the problem this way, please set the printer to a default printer for all your programs

Epson RX580 Communication Error During Install


Hey...

I ran into a similar problem (okay, the same problem), and my problem turned out to be my USB cable. I was using an extender. When I ran the cable to the PC without the cable extender, my problems disappeared. If you're not using an extender, you might just try a different USB cable.

Hope that helps...

Hi. I have previously downloaded the driver for the Lexmark X75 printer, but when I try to print -I get the following error message: "Incorrect Port Detected. The current print job has been...


I'm assuming you're using Windows XP. If not, these directions may differ a little.

  1. Click Start > Printers and Faxes.
  2. Right-click on Lexmark X75, and then click on Properties.
  3. Click on the Ports tab.
  4. Find Lexmark X75 under the Printers column (or look for which item under the Port column is checked).
  5. Chances are it somehow got changed to COM or LPT. Find any available USB port and check it. Click Apply.
  6. Try to print. If it doesn't work now, you'll probably get a different error, something like "Cannot Communicate". If that happens, go back to theProperties window and try checking any other USB ports you see there. If there aren't any more to try, you may have to uninstall and reinstall the drivers to get it working.
Good luck!

Epson Stylus C46 InkJet


Check USB cable.
Try different cable and connect it to different usb port.
If it is not the cable, do the following driver reinstall:
Disconnect printer from usb
Remove printer from 'installed printers' in Windows.
Install again driver from disk with printer not connected.
connect printer when required by setup procedure or after installing drivers.
If it still does not wark then the printer is faulty.

Installing epson dx8450


Hi french22, when ever you get an error message like the one you have. Run windows update. After windows update opens choose the Custom button. It's windows that provides USB drivers. If your using Vista my suggestions may not help but you have nothing to loose.
Windows scans your notebook. (Which is a good thing).
Un-install the printer software you have listed from control panel.
Hook your printer up completely but leave the power button on the printer to off. Than during a restart enter your notebooks bios. I think pressing either the F12 or F10 key will load the bios for a notebook. Find plug and play OS & change it from Yes to No.
This keeps windows from assigning IRQ's to your hardware devices. Windows makes too many mistakes from time to time.
I looked everywhere for your Epson Stylus dx8450, (US) & could not find it. Had to go to Epson Europe. arrrrrrrg! I picked Vista for the driver page below.
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=lkuCfcvA9cwvvTQvZBj4Do8njW9o0vUIeGCYznQY84EU003D

If I picked wrong than go to this link & fill in the 3 windows.
http://esupport.epson-europe.com/SupportHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=0ccCGROWIYM58zV3pqc84YT0DcLI1RrpNUFXBv299cYU003D
Lastly if you could not find Epson software in the control panel Add/Remove programs than use windows search & find Epson & delete it. Also remove Epson Stylus dx8450 from the regestry.
Click strart, run & type in the run window regedit click ok.
Click Edit, find & type in Epson Stylus dx8450 & delete it. Close all opened windows & restart the notebook.
Load either your cdrom or download the driver from the net & try again to install the software. Out of info. God I hate Vista. You may end up talking with tech support for your notebook.
The problem is not you.

Have a great weekend!
Mike
