OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Updating Epson Stylus C88?

Whenever there is a software driver update via Apple for my Epson printer, I always update it. But, is it normal for one to delete and readd the printer to use the new driver? I notice my system says it's the old driver until I delete and readd..

Snow Leopard :: Epson Printer Utility2 And A C88+
Since upgrading to Snow Leopard my MacPro cannot use the Epson Printer Utility2 to manage my Epson C88+ printer. I use it for letters and stuff -

The Printer Utility2 program crashes on start-up and I am given, instead, Printer Utility Lite...

That "Lite" program lacks the features that tell me which ink is out - and docks the heads for replacement.

I tried everything to import Printer Utility2 - but it will not run.

And - the C88+ printer works fine otherwise.

OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard :: Epson Stylus NX430 - Two-sided Printing Grayed Out?
Printing from any program, Two-Sided Printing on the print prompt screen is grayed out. There's no reason for this, as my desktop Windows does double-sided all the time. I've found a lot of discussions in the Leopard forum about this problem, but none of them used my system or my printer and I couldn't find similar solutions. I'm running 10.6.8., trying to print from Chrome specifically, wirelessly connected to my printer.

Snow Leopard :: Epson Stylus Pro 4000 And SL
Is anyone successfully printing with an SP 4000 and the 10.5 driver in Snow Leopard? I can work with either Photoshop CS4 or Lightroom 2. Epson suggests using Rosetta as a work around. Does that work with CS4?

Snow Leopard :: Printing To Epson Stylus RIP 3
I have just upgraded to Snow Leopard and my postcript rip has disappeared... I have noticed a few posts about Appletalk being dropped from the new OS which has presumably caused this. I have a new 13" MacBook (2.4Ghz/ OS 10.6) and an old 15" PowerBook G4 (1.6GHz Power PC/ OS10.5.8) and an even older 15" PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz Power PC/ OS10.3.9). All are on my wireless network via the BT Homehub. I have the RIP software set up on the 1.5GHz PowerBook G4 connected to an Epson 9800 large format printer. All was well until the upgrade... I have tried to set up the RIP via IP printing but it is not visible. As I use the printer for my business and at the moment I am having to print PDFs copy them to the old machine and print from there, kind of defeating the object...

Snow Leopard :: Epson Stylus Photo R200 Not Showing Ink Levels
Ever since I switched to Snow Leopard I have lost my ability to see ink levels or select my paper type. I can print, but there is not much control over the printing and I have no clue which color cartidge to replace. Snow Leopard is using Gutenprint V5.2.3 drivers for this but I notice it uses the same driver for Canon and a whole bunch of others so it is not specialized for this printer and thus that is why I can't see anything. When I select "supply levels" the message I get is "information not available".

I installed Rosetta and tried to use drivers from Epson site but the most recent Epson drivers are pre Snow Leopard.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can't Print Wirelessly With Epson Stylus NX530
I purchased an Epson Stylus NX530 printer with wireless capability.  I have a MacBook Pro running OSX v10.7.  My printer is installed and works as expected when connected via USB cord but printer shows up offline when USB is disconnected.  I connected my printer to my wireless network through my router (entering name of connection and passcode) and enabled the sharing capabiliy in System Preferences.  So my setup is that I connected my MacBook to my router and my printer to the router.  Is there anything else I am missing?  Would connecting both the computer and printer to the wireless router be all I shoud need to do to be able to print wirelessly?  Is my wirelss router considered my "network?"  If my printer has a wireless internet connection, should I be able to "view" it anywhere on my MacBook other than printer settings when it is not connected via USB (I had to initially connect my computer via USB to the printer during setup).

Snow Leopard :: Updating Printer Drivers (Epson 4800)
After installing Snow my Epson printer did not work properly. At Epson they give no timing for updating their drivers for professional printers. My only solution seems to unistall Snow and put it back on when the drivers are ready. There are no alternative gutenberg drivers for this model.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Install Gutenprint Drivers For Epson Stylus Color 440?
I have and old and useful printer -Epson Stylus Color 440- and just bougth a cable for connecting it to USB port. Add a new print on its Print and Scan Preference Panel and it was recognized inmediatly, but I was told there was not any driver to that printer.  

Tried to set "Epson Stylus Color Series" on its driver but when I went to print, printer seemed to work but does not eject any ink. It seemed as if I were ran out of ink; its car moved over the places occupied by the photo and sounded as normal printing, but not a drop of ink. I checked on an older windows pc, and ink is full, printed normally. I also looked for its drivers on Epson pages, but it seems there are only available for previos Mac OSs, not for X. 

A son told me that in his Snow Leopard MacBook White there's a dirver called "Epson Stylus Color 440 gutenprint" on his Print and Scan Driver Menu; haven't tried to print from his MacBook yet, and as I searched, those are open drivers. 

I wonder if I can download and install that "Epson Stylus Color 440 gutenprint" from the web, of if there's a way to copy it from my son's Macbook, when he comes and check.

OS X Leopard :: Epson Stylus SX400 And Bonjour
I've just installed the above mentioned printer. When connected directly via USB to the Mac it works flawlessly. When I try and print via Bonjour (connecting the printer to an airport express) it doesn't work. I've installed all driver updates but no change. The Mac does see the printer in Bonjour (it correctly sees the printer and the base station it's connected to) but when I send a print, there's no response. I see that there are similar problems in the forum but not specifically with my model and the suggestions given elsewhere don't seem to work for me.

OS X Leopard :: How To Get Epson Stylus To Join Network
It should be so simple, but setting up an Epson Stylus Photo px700w with airport extreme proves otherwise. How can I get the Epson to join my network, when there are no WPS, SES, or WCN settings available in the airport admin? There is no such button on the Airport Extreme either. This leaves me with manual set up, but then I run into new problems. How can I know if my network is an ad-hoc or an infrastructure network?

And how do I change the channel on the Epson, if ad-hoc is the correct setting? Anyways, the best for me is to get a set up process including Epson PH PX700W and airport extreme on how to set it up wirelessly and/or by USB (to the airport extreme) so that scanning is possibly without having to connect directly to my MBP via USB.

OS X Leopard :: Hook Up Epson Stylus Photo R220
I'm currently using a Epson Stylus Photo R220, primarily for printing on DVDs, from a still robust G4 PowerMac, which I'd like to stop using since I spend 99% of my time editing on my new Mac Pro. Thought I should ask here first. Can I hook the R220 up to the new Intel-based system and expect it to work?

OS X Leopard :: Printing To Epson Color Stylus 740 On 10.5.6?
What can I do to print a decent document?

I seem to be having similar problems as others, printing to an Epson Color Stylus 740. I have lost the ability to select paper quality, color/B&W for Photoshop and Illustrator C3 files. These worked fine with 10.4.11 Everything seems to be up to date though I note that the Epson printer driver may be past its sell-by date.

OS X Leopard :: EPSON Stylus CX9400Fax - Will Not Print From Computer - MacPro 10.5.1?
When I attempt to print from Photoshop CS3 or Microsoft Word, in the printer queue I read, Status Stopped. I click on the name and window pops up saying, Operation could not be completed - next line, client-error-not-possible... What the heck?! I installed the drivers off the CD that came with the printer and upgraded the driver on the net B4 plugging in the Printer during installation - SO it should work, right?

What am I doing wrong? And please don't say, You bought an EPSON... How do I make it work? And please don't say, Buy another printer other than an EPSON. And last, How do I prevent this error message occurring in the future? Please don't say, Don't by another EPSON... PS: Now, if I might digress, Mac Lovers, now, I used Mac's when I was in college and moved to PCs in my job and am now back to Mac's, purchased a Mac Pro and a MacBook Pro a couple months ago and have had nothing but probs with them. Some aliens, captured from Area 51 held against their will in the bowels of APPLE, keep moving the versions of the operating system up so fast I think some of my software is having a difficult time keeping up and is ACTUALLY crashing the system. Oh, then the nice little report can be sent to apple's aliens and they

OS X Leopard :: EPSON Stylus Photo 950 - No OSX Driver Available?
I want to start using our Epson Stylus Photo 950 again after a few years, only to find out that my driver needs a classic environment. Our local Epson helpdesk claims there's only a pc update available and says they can't help me. Online, I've found several references to an OSX version of the driver, but it's broken link after broken link.

OS X Leopard :: Print Quality Different Using Two Computers (Epson Stylus Photo R1800)
The print quality is better when I print the same Photoshop document on my old computer (IMac--non Intel computer with Version 10.5.5) than when I try to print same document on new Intel IMac with Version 10.5.6) on Epson Stylus Photo printer-- using the identical Color Settings, I have the correct Epson drivers on both. Not sure what else to try. The photo from the new IMac is consistently too dark, brightness not there... too contrasty. I have repeatedly checked to make sure settings are identical with both computer setups.

OS X Leopard :: Epson Stylus Photo RX595 Printer Stopped After Updates
I just updated my computer stuff to 10.5.7 and my printer suddenly stopped working. I actually updates several items, but I imagine it was the OS. I can access the printer utility and it will still give me ink levels and other info, but it won't print. The status just changes to "stopped." Stuff like this makes me want to not update the computer.

And it will make copies when it is plugged into the OS 10.3.9. It will even print a test pattern when the utilities function is open. But it will not print an image or a Word doc or an Appleworks doc that is stored on the OS 10.3.9.

OS X Tiger :: New Epson Stylus Photo PX710W Not Work Wirelessly
I've been reading printer threads on here 'til I'm dizzy. So many people having almost the same problem ... finally though, Im going to have to post this new question. We just bought an Epson Stylus Photo PX710W wireless scanner/printer. The idea was for it to be accessible from ,y Mac Mini and my partner's Mac book, wirelessly. So, took it out of the box, studied the manuals and the installation instructions, then tried to follow them. The bottom line is that this printer works fine as long as its connected via a USB lead to one of our machines, but it will not work wirelessly. I must have been through the install process twenty times. The point of failure is always the same, however it is arrived at, whether the firewall is on or off, whether the printer system has just been reset or not, whether the USB lead is left plugged in or removed as prompted, whatever... At some point, the user is asked to confirm (or enter) the router's SSID and WEP key. It sends this info to the printer, and that's where the installation ends. Each time the error report says here is no connection to printer, asks "Is printer turned on?" (Doh!) "Is hub switched on?" (Doh! again). The printer is getting 'Excellent' signal from the hub. It's pretty annoying when a piece of kit like this is sold on the basis that it is compatible with Mac OS X, only for this claim to be completely undermined by reality.

I can see from other folk's questions that printers and Macs don't always get along, and I'm wondering, in my case, am I doing/not doing something (un-documented) which I should/ shouldn't? is this an Epson drop off or an Apple one?

Hardware :: Epson Stylus Photo R320 Ink Levels - Never Indicates?
I have the above printer connected to my iMac and it has been working flawlessly for months. I have one issue though. When the printer is running low on ink, the maintenance light blinks, indicating low levels. But, it doesnt tell what ink cartridge is low, and since i dot want to go all out and change them all, i need to know how to view levels. On my Mac, it only says information not available for supply levels, and as far as I know, there is no way to check on the printer itself. Does anybody know how to view the ink levels, either on the printer or my iMac?

OS X Tiger :: Cannot Add Epson Stylus Photo 1400 To Printer List
I just unpacked my new printer, however I don't seem to be able to install it properly. I have tried both the the driver from the website as well as the one that came with it on CD. First, installing seems to go smoothly. Then I get to a screen telling me that before I can print I will have to add it to the printer list. The next screen gives me the printer list with the Epson Stylus's name on it. However, clicking on it I am not able to select the proper device name. It just doesn't appear on the list. (click here for a screenshot: [URL] Finally, the Epson driver installation app tells me that my printer "has not been added to the printer list" and that I should better go back and try again. "Running a printer check" actually makes it draw paper in but doesn't print anyhow.

Hardware :: Epson Stylus CX4200 Ink - Color Look Faded - Actual Picture Distorted
I bought my mac back in Feb. and I received a free printer along with it. The Epson all in one Stylus piece of ****. Well I shook the individual ink catridges well and installed them all. Since then I haven't been able to get a clear sheet of paper. All the colours look faded but the actual picture is not distorted. It's just the contrast of the colour thats gone. now is there a way I can alter the amount of ink my printer is using? I have tried aimlessly, looking for an option but I cannot find any.
