No, however, there are similar printers in the c7000 and c8000 series that include bluetooth. Even so, it can only print basic text from cell phones that support the feature, so it is really useless.

Will this adapter work with a All in one 5500 printer?

Hi as long as the printer is bluetooth capable then this dongle will pick up the signal and it will then let you use the printer.

you should have no problems using it as long as you have the printer software installed on your computer and you also need to install the drivers for the usb bluetooth once you have done this you need to make sure the printer is switched on then you need to scan using the bluetooth software then just connect with the printer, this will then pair the devices and will let you use the printer via bluetooth

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance.

plz can you rate this solution as i have pages on unrated posts filling my page, thanks

How do i set up bluetooth connectivity


If you have Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or 3 installed on the computer, then the computer has the Microsoft Bluetooth Protocol Stack. The Microsoft stack allows you to install an external Bluetooth adapter automatically. If the Bluetooth adapter supports the Microsoft stack but it does not install automatically, then you do not have the Microsoft stack on the computer.

>>Make sure that you have installed the HP All-in-One software on the computer.

>>Attach an HP Bluetooth adapter to the front USB port of the HP All-in-One.

>>If you are using an external Bluetooth adapter for the computer, make sure the computer is on and then attach the Bluetooth adapter to a USB port on the computer. If you have Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or 3 installed, the Bluetooth drivers are installed automatically. If you are prompted to select a Bluetooth profile, select HCRP.

On the Windows taskbar, click Start , and then click Printers and Faxes .

>>Double-click the Add Printer icon.

>>Click Next , and then select A Bluetooth Printer .

>>Follow the onscreen instructions to finish the installation.

>>Print as you would to any printer.

How do you connect printer to laptop with bluetooth

Hi friend,
follow the given below instructions-
1-Make sure your printer is Bluetooth enabled. Some printers come this way (read the manual to verify) but others require adapters. Shop online or visit an electronics store to find an inexpensive Bluetooth printer adapter.
2-Set up your adapter. All you need do is connect one end to your laptop and the other end to your printer and it will install itself.
3-Turn on the printer. Make sure it is connected to a working electrical outlet and the printer power is on correctly.
4-Open Bluetooth devices on your laptop. After installing your Bluetooth adapter, go to the control panel and open "Bluetooth Devices."
5-Add printer automatically. This is less secure, but easier. From the options tab, make sure the options "Turn discover on" and "Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this laptop" are checked. Your printer and laptop should then find each other automatically and begin working. If you'd rather not let other devices discover your laptop, follow steps 6 and 7 instead.
6-Add device manually. From the devices tab, select "Add Device" and run the installation wizard to find your printe
7-Use the "Add Printers" wizard. You can also add the printer by clicking "Start" and "Printers and Faxes" and then "Add a Printer." When the wizard pops up, select "Bluetooth printer" and Windows will search for your printer automatically.

RE: Canon Bu-20 bluetooth printer adaptor. I just purchased one and there are NO instructions in the package. Do you know of an instruction page/manual?

With my MX850 printer the bluetooth setup instructions were only in the on-screen printer manual, not with the bluetooth adapter, and not with the printer documentation.

In my case it didn't help as Windows is not discovering the bluetooth adapter for some reason.

Problem in taking a print from Nokia 3500 using kyocera printer attached with Bluetooth adaptor

Check your Bluetooth adapter and see if it requires driver. If it requires driver then you can't just plug it in to your printer unless your printer has a built-in drivers for Bluetooth adapters.

Check if the printer supports Bluetooth adapters and make sure that your Bluetooth adapter is compatible with the printer.

I have a HP Photosmart C7280 and a new MacOS 10.5.2 Both have Bluetooth. I'm unable to establish a connection. The setup asks if the printer is" discoverable". How do I make the printer...

Hi JGross1638,

Unfortuneatley, the C7280 does not have bult in bluetooth. It has normal built in Wireless 802.11g technology. In order to make the printer bluetooth, you can use an external bluetooth device to make it that way. The C8180 is the next model up that includes 802.11g wireless technology as well as bluetooth wireless technology.

This is the bluetooth adapter:

If you already have the adapter, you might want to try reset the bluetooh settings on the printer. Be default, the printer is setup so that any bluetooth device can print to it. So, if you've played around with the settings then you should just have to reset them.

To reset the bluetooth settings, scroll through the main menu until you get to "Setup" and select it. Scroll through the setup menu and select, "Bluetooth" (This option will only appear if you have the adapter installed). Scroll down until you see "Reset Bluetooth" and that will reset it.

Here is the link to the manual: (Bottom of page 35 for bluetooth reset.)

I hope this helps,

Adding bluetooth to toshiba laptop

Well,I'm not really an expert on Bluetooth, but let me try...

Which version of Windows are you running? If you have Windows XP SP2 or above, the Microsoft Bluetooth stack should be installed on your system. First make sure that the Kensington bluetooth adapter is compatible with the printer and the OS. From what I heard Canon sell a separate Bluetooth adapter for about $80 for this, but I'm not too sure.

Secondly, ensure that the built-in Bluetooth Stack or Software has the required Profile for your printer.

Next, put your printer in "discover" mode (see printer manual for more info ). Use the Bluetooth Connection Utility software that came with the built-in Bluetooth stack to "discover" the printer. Follow the instructions by the Bluetooth stack manufacturer on how to pair and connect Bluetooth devices to your built-in Bluetooth stack.

Please also see THIS article. although it is meant for the Logitech DeNovo keyboard, it can be used for any Bluetooth enabled devices. (Just replace the DeNovo wit your printer in the article.

But mainly, make sure that the Kensington adapter is compatible...

Hope that helps..
