Having followed the manufacturer's instructions (from the manual), and having tried to install and re-install this printer to use via Bluetooth, I am having no luck.
I can get to a point where it SEES the printer, but will bonk out as it says "Driver Not Installed" -- well, the driver IS installed to use it via USB, but it won't let me add a new driver version via BT. I can even get to a point where I am asked for the PIN to pair the BT device. Still, it won't go further than that.
Has anyone experienced this problem? More importantly, does anyone have suggestions for how to either make the wizards work or create a driver manually? I'd really appreciate it. We love the printer and I would like to make it easier for my wife so that she can print without a cable (a luxury, I know).

Re: Bluetooth will not set up with Mac OS X
Are you logged in as root or administrator? You may want to start from scratch. Wireless is sensitive. Uninstall the printer and reset the bluetooth settings. Then reinstall.
Make sure your speakers aren't to close to the printers...trans/rec window.

You did not specify if printer was formerly working, the model # of the printer, or what version of Windows you are using. All this information is needed for successful troubleshooting. However, the below is general resolution for your problem:
"Offline" means your computer cannot "see" the printer as connected and powered on.
In order of things to try:
1. Turn printer OFF. Unplug USB cord from printer (or other end from computer). Wait at least 30 seconds. Plug USB cord back in. Turn printer back on. Does it still show as "offline" under Start --> Devices & Printers?
2. Try replacing the USB cord (yes, they can and do go bad).
3. Turn printer off. Unplug USB cord.
Under Windows Start --> Printers and Devices:
RIGHT click the Konica printer icon. Select "uninstall" (or "remove device") and follow through until printer is successfully UNinstalled. If there is other Konica software installed, remove it also (via Start --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs -or- Programs & Features).
4. Reboot your computer. Follow manufacturer printer installation procedure, step-by-step (consult mfr website if you do not have a printed installation manual). Do not plug in USB cord or turn on printer until instructed to do so.
If all else fails:
Ignore any manufacturer installation instructions.
Do # 3 only above.
Plug in printer and connect it to computer.
Let Windows try to automatically install it (in most cases, Windows can install the "basic" print drivers, which are smaller and sometimes more stable than the fancy drivers and excess software the manufacturer wants you to install).
If still no go, you probably have a dying or dead printer. Consult manufacturer website for help.
To install a printer in window 7, you need the printer installation CD/software.
Connect the printer to your system via a USB Cable (or any other cable necessary). Power on the printer. If you use a USB cable, windows 7 will automatically detect the printer and try to install it for you. However, if windows 7 does not have the driver, you will be prompted to load the drive from CD or a file location. If you have the Driver CD, load it now or browse to the folder where the driver software is located and load the software. Follow the on screen instruction to complete the installation.
Also From start------devices and printers ------ add a printer ------add local printer ----- use an existing port, next ----------choose the printer manufacturer and the printer model. If not on the list and you have the installation CD choose have Disk and then next. Follow the onscreen instruction to complete the installation.
You can also run the Printer driver software and follow the onscreen instruction to complete the installation.
1. Turn off the all-in-one printer and, if connected via USB, remove the USB 2.0 cable.

3.Reinstall the latest software for your printer.

4. Reconnect the USB cable when prompted during the installation.
You can download the drivers from the Manufacturer Web Site.You do not mention what brand printer and which Operating System you have ie: Windows7, XP , Home Edition…
Go to the Manufacturer Web Site ie: Epson.com or hp.com etc, and choose your OS and download and install the drivers and software, then restart your computer.
The website will have the software "drivers" for you to download that your printer model's installation CD-ROM originally came with. This is necessary for your computer to recognize what kind of printer you're plugging in to it.
The printer's installation CD-ROM had the exact same drivers that you will be downloading so it will be like if you’re getting the installation CD-ROM again but only via the internet instead of having an actual CD-ROM so don't worry about it.
Some generations of people are terrified of using the internet for no other reason then FEAR of the unknown and that is not my problem. Just be brave.
Most computers will have a wizard software. Follow these step to install printer:turn on computer,,& printer and hook up together click on "start "then go to 'setting", select " printer & fax, then go to adding----after that the wizard box will display you just follow the instruction to finish your installation.

Hi, I would suggest you update your printer driver, try this, follow instructions exactly as written, do not use installation cd:
Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.
