How do you print with an Epson printer from your smartphone?
Prepare the printer
Is your printer still in the box or haven't you set it up yet? Install it first, before you start printing. Have you already done this? Go to Step 3. Set up the printer as follows:
- Unpack the printer and remove all stickers and blue adhesive tapes.
- Fill the paper cassette with paper.
- Connect the power cable to the back of the printer.
- Select a language on the printer display.
- Install all included cartridges into the cartridge holder.
- The printer will now initialize and make a test print.
Step 1: connect your printer to the WiFi network
Look for the WiFi symbol. This is probably located at the top of the screen. Then, select 'WiFi' and go to the Wizard WiFi settings. Choose the network you want to connect to. Enter a password, if required, and your printer is connected to the internet.
Step 2: download the app
To print from your smartphone, you don't need to download drivers or operating systems. You can get started right away. Just download the Epson iPrint app in the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Once the app has finished downloading, open it. Make sure you're connected to the same WiFi network as your printer. Otherwise, the app can't find the printer.
Step 3: connect to the printer
If you agree, accept the terms and conditions. You'll receive a brief explanation of what you can do with the app, after which you'll be redirected to the home screen. Here, you'll see 'Printer not selected'. Tap it and choose the printer you want to connect to. You can also connect the phone via the display of the printer, but this isn't the easiest way.
Step 4: get to know the app
After adding the printer, you'll see the status of your device right away. You'll see the remaining ink and the lifespan of your maintenance cassette, for example. You can also clean the printhead, check the nozzles, and order new ink. Of course, you can also print and scan with this app. To do this, go back to the home page with the arrow. You can scan, print photos, and print documents here. You can also print directly from social media or from the cloud.
Step 5: print files and photos
Printing a file or photo is easy. In the home screen, go to 'print photos' or 'print documents'. Select the files you want to print and adjust them on the next page. Make sure you select the correct paper size. This is usually A4 for documents and 10x15cm for photos. Tap 'Print' and your photo will appear in your output drawer.
Step 6: scan files and photos
To scan, simply go to 'Scan'. Place your document or photo on the glass plate and tap the scan button at the bottom right of your screen. Done! You can now save it on your phone, share it with others, or email it to an email address of your choice.
