Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner
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
