Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

Cannot print from my Intel based MAcBook Pro on my Epson Stylus Photo R1800

I used to be able to print w/o any problems with my old PowerBook G4, but I bought a new Intel based Macbook Pro (running Leopard 10.5.2) and now I can't print. I downloaded the new driver from Epson Gutenprint v5.1.3 but I get error messages like 'Network host " is busy; will retry in 30 seconds' Nothing happens, it looks like it starts to do something but then just stops. The printer is connected to my 37' Cinema display. I have to connect it this way because my MacBook Pro only has one connection that will work (firewire) and I have my Cinema display connected to it.

Mac book pro has a usb cable right? you can actually use it to connect to the r2400 and then dont use a guten driver use the downloadable driver for r2400 for leopard instead

Macintosh OS X 10.5 drivers for your product are available for download from the Epson support site.

1. Go to the Epson support website (www.epson.com/support).

2. Select your product model and download the driver for OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system.

MacBook won't recognize my Lacie Rugged Hard Disk. Disk utility will see it but won't verify it nor will it repair it. says it needs to be reformatted yet it won't even let me initialize it. it is brand...


Is your MacBook as fast as the Lacie Rugged Hard Disk is?

Because solid state drive wasn't available on MacBook Pro at the initial time when it launched. Hard drives on all current Apple laptops are equipped with Sudden Motion Sensor technology. In fact, the Apple laptops that came with Sudden Motion Sensor are: All Intel-based Apple portables such as the MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, PowerBook G4 computers starting with PowerBook G4 (12-inch 1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (15-inch 1.67/1.5GHz), PowerBook G4 (17-inch 1.67GHz), and iBook G4 computers starting with iBook G4 (Mid 2005) have Sudden Motion Sensor technology. You MacBook may not have come with that technology that could be the reason you are unable to connect it.

When printing to an Epson R1800 have a problem


Make sure the paper size is not set to US letter sheetfeeder borderless use just US letter. the borderless function slightly enlarges document content to ensure that it bleeds overthe edge. If your has a bleed, use in page setup - US letter sheetfeeder borderless - In the print dialog box click printer button which brings up a warning about using a different settings dialog box, - continue on to the r1800 print dialog box. about midway down is a pull down menu - choose expansion and adjust it to the lowest setting. if your printout does not bleed to the edge bump the expansion adjustment up 1 measure.

MacBook Pro Epson Print Driver Dilemma


your problem is about profiles. The gutenprint is the only way to print from intel to r1800, but this driver don't use the same ICC profiles. You have to use one of three solutions below:
1 the best, you have a profile calibrating device, you make a profile of your couple ink-paper and you convert your document into this ICC profile.
2 you convert your picture into your software in one of the Epson generic profiles (hey probably still are on your computer) and you print whithout color managment
3 (awful) you anticipate the color distorsion and you tune your picture to be bad on the screen but pretty good on paper.

Epson R1800 pauses during printing


If you give to the printer a big file to print, you will overfill the buffer. So it will make a stop to refill, and during this pause the ink become dry on limit. The r1800 is A3 printer 300dpi, so a 50MB file is enough to plain quality.
Try to put your file in 8 bit mode, flatten it and put it to the print size in 300dpi.
