Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

R1800 issues continue

Hi KG,

I followed your instructions (3 times to make sure I wasn't screwing up)

I delete the old files, download the 3.0 driver, restart computer...
but when I try to add the printer I get a warning box that says " You may not be able to print to "EPSON SP R1800" please reinstall the printers software.

I was wondering if anyone else has encountered this problem and found a work around?
thanks,
Kelly

5. Highlight printer as it appears under Printer Name.
6. For "Print Using" select "Epson Stylus R1800" if this automatically appears on the list. If this does not appear, select OTHER (not "Epson" - which links you to GIMP drivers, which we don't recommend or support).

1. Once you have an image or file open, go to File > Page Setup.
2. For "Format For" select the Epson printer name (rather than "Any Printer").
3. Select the appropriate Paper Size. If your printer supports different layout features, each paper size will have several different options. For example, the 4x6 paper size will have an arrow pointing right which offers choices of 4x6 Borderless, 4x6 Standard-Minimize Margins, etc. Pick the paper type plus layout/margin option you want to use here.
4. Click OK on Page Setup. You are now ready to print.

But goal is to have a borderless printout right? when you go to page setup and choose paper sizes when you go to letter size, does it have a slider for letter- borderless? and when you go to file print and and check the print setting/ print layout is fit to page selected?

If it is make sure it is directly connected to your mac via a USB or Firewire cable.

Trash epson folder from Mac HD-Library- Printers
Delete Epson printer utility from Mac HD- Application folder( if you have both delete both icon.

Under prnter setup utility delete the r1800 printer

Go to finder click on file the find, type com.apple.print, if it find anything drag it all on the trash, it will not disappear from the window ( the prefs and . cache files)

download the latest driver for your r1800 from epson website
epson12113.dmg - 10.3MB - posted on 12/20/

New Intel MacPro + Epson SP R1800 printer + OSX 10.5.2 = Nightmare.


I managed to solve this problem by, probably, doing what I should've done in the first place: Deleting the printer from the print queue and starting again from scratch. 
I read the following instructions from a message from Epson and it pointed me in the right direction. It sounds obvious now, but when you think you've tried everything and you've started to pull your hair out, you can overlook what is staring you in the face.


Message from Epson:
If your output is faint or if the driver settings and/or features are
missing, your system may have automatically added the printer using the
Gutenprint driver. Many Epson drivers are provided with Leopard but the
driver for your printer needs to be downloaded from the Epson website.

Determine Which Driver is Currently Being Used
1. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open
System Preferences.
2. In the System Preferences window, click on Print & Fax.
3. In the list of printers on the left side of the Print & Fax window,
click once on your Epson printer to select it.
4. Check the name of the driver being used; it is displayed in the center
of the Print & Fax window next to “Kind”.
5. If the driver name displayed next to “Kind” is Gutenprint, the incorrect
driver is being used. Follow the steps in the next section to select the
correct driver.

Selecting the Correct Driver
1. Turn off the printer.
2. Delete the print queue and remove the printer from Print & Fax by
clicking on the minus button under the list of printers. Click OK to
confirm the removal.
3. Go to the Epson support website (www.epson.com/support).
4. Select your product model and download the driver for OS X 10.5 Leopard
operating system.
5. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions
to install the printer driver.
6. Click on the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the Finder and open
System Preferences. 


The message ended there. 
If anyone out there is having a similar problem to me, then I hope this thread helps. 
All the best. logan
