I am trying to install an Oneil mf4t on a 32 bit Windows 7 laptop.

The printer shows as a printer on the list of installed bluetooth services serial Port (SPP) '4T Blue tooth'  COM15

On "Control Panel - Devices and Printers" it show as up as an "Authenticated Blue tooth Printer"

I have downloaded and run (many times) the Seagull 7.3.6 driver program.

Despite appearing as a printer I an unable to print to it, it does not appear as a printer on any printing program , word, notepad, open office etc.

 

What am I doing wrong?

Install the printer driver using the Seagull DriverWizard.  Choose the appropriate serial port that the bluetooth service exposes.

I have the same problem, and I am not new to this rodeo, I have installed multiple bluetooth printers in XP Win7 mostly from Intermec, now I followed the following procedure (tried in Vista/Windows 7 /Windows 8):

 

1) I paired the printer to the computer, via bluetooth add device.

 

2) Idenfied the assigned COMn: port in the bluetooth settings app.

 

3) Run the dirver Wizard. (installing Version 7.3.3 for the MF4t) and lo and behold in the list of availble ports, the port assigned to the bluetooth device is missing.

 

4) Well, I install using a different port, (I am even using the rs232/rj11 cable and connect the printer to the physical serial port, and the printer does work under this configuration)

 

5) I open the printer properties and change the assigned port form COM(physical): to COM(Bluetooth):

 

6) Send a test page, the printer will beep, and the job will appear with error in the queue, the printer does not print, and I am back to square one. 

 

Could it be a problem with the bluetooth version? I tried in four different computers (the oldest is 5 years old), and the result is the same in all of them. I can't connect the printer via bluetooth.

hgeslee: I suggest you speak to the printer manufacturer for advice.
