I have a epson wireless NX420 printer and I have a IMAC 27".I have paired the printer and my mac couple times before with success.Now we moved again, and I can't seem to do it anymore.The printer does show connected to wifi _ same network IMAC has.Imac can't find the printer at all. I now use USB and its just annoying.Please help.
Software (if necessary): Other
Youtube and google and tried to download the printer driver again.
Sometimes if I turn off and turn on the printer, then it would print but only the first page and then I would have to turn off and turn on every single time.
Lately, that doesn't even work anymore. I have deleted the printer, added the printer before few times. Now the IMAC wont find the printer.
Maybe I am missing some steps.
hi,are you home wifi working?try to re-setup your printer connection to home wifi.the setup wizard should be on the printer's control panel.after that depends on what operating system you installed on your imac,go here and reinstall printer software -->> http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=151211&prodoid=63087959&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintoshmake sure download and install "driver and utilities combo package"just follow on the screen instruction to setup wirelss printer.also, make sure go to apple menu --->>> software update and install all available update.now reboot your computer and test your printer again.let me know if that workout for you. thanks
when you installed the combo package it should have the network installer in there to let you change your printer settings from usb to wireless.go here --->> http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=151211&prodoid=63087959&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintoshinstalled Epsonnet configuration utility and used it to setup wirelessly.
I did and it took me to set up all over again. I set up wifi on my printer again, but at the last step (adding the printer) - still can't find my printer wirelessly. It will show the printer if I plug in the USB but if I take out the USB, then it wont detect anything.
if you have anti-virus, spyware or internet security software make sure you disable it because it might block the connect between the printer and your computer.why dont you try this,go to the printer control panel which is on the printer itself, go into settings and find a IP address that your wireless network gave your printer. it should be in the Lan settings. IP address are something like this 192.168.1.1 if you were successfully connected to your wireless network your printer should have one.since you know your printer is already connect to your wireless network.go to system preferences ---->>> printer and fax ---->> select your printer name from the list and remove it by click the (-) sign, then click the (+) sign to add, click on the IP tab and enter the IP you find on your printer, then click add.or if your printer name already been detected on the network then just select it.
This is frustrating. I am sorry, but my mac simply wont detect my printer. there is no where to be found. both you and me and missing something here.
check out this video and make sure you're correctly setup the software.http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportShowVideo.jsp
So I printed out the network status..everything pass.
unplugged your router power adapter for 30 seconds and plugged it back in again.wait a little and test printing again.
