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 installation on notebook and PDA


the problem may be that the driver is pointing the printer to print via the serial port, so you will have to go to the printers and faxes folder and see if your printer is listed, if so right click and select properties, then in the next window, click on the 'Ports' tab and you will have to click configure port to change it to usb.

Whenever i try to print anything my printer prints the first 5 lines or so and then just stops and moves on to the next page where it print the first 5 lines before giving up again.


What type of document are you trying to print(PDF, MS Word doc, etc)?
Is the printer connected via USB cable, Bluetooth?

First thing I would do is try printing a different document or even a different type of document.
If printing different documents results in the same problem then I would uninstall the current drivers, download the latest drivers from Canon, then install those drivers and try printing again.
Also, if the printer is connected to your computer via USB cable verify the cable has no exposed wiring or try a different USB cable.

Will not print on command


Greetings welcome to Fixya.

Might I suggest downloading and installing the latest drivers for your HP Printer.
See my published guide entitled How to Install the latest drivers for Hewlett Packard Printer!!!

Be sure to connect the USB cable to both the computer and the Printer then turn on the Power. Try different USB ports on your computer/laptop.

Navigate to the Windows control panel and double click printers and faxes.
Click print test page on the bottom right of the box.
Also view the print que, right click on your printer and set it as the default printer.
Then in properties view the print que!

Also when you are printing in MS Word, click file print, then when the settings come up for the print ensure that your HP PSC 2410 All-In-One InkJet Printer is selected in the top most section of the box.

Tell me how it goes via comment!
Thanking you

I have a MS computer system and a Lexmark printer. I have printed addresses on envelopes for years but for some reason, recently it quit printing addresses. I can print anything else from Microsoft Word...


Mike,
Have you followed the procedure described in the following link?
Installing Devices on PCs and Laptops
Please follow it verbatim and you will find that the printer behaves. Sometimes the drivers get corrupted due to no fault of yours. So, they have to be reinstalled. And for that there is a set drill as described in the link.
Happy Holidays.

Cannot print and fax using Lexmark x2470 All-inOne Center


Make sure your printer is set up correctly, check port it's set to be using, is it usb or lpt port. Try switching to a different port and see if it will help you.

If all fails, try deleting the printer and associated devices from device manager. Reconnect the printer, if a new hardware found message dons't come up, try a different USB port. I think, in order to successfuly install a PNP printer, it must first come up a message saying NEW HARDWARE FOUND. Then the rest will follow.

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
