I have just purchased the above but the installation has been far more complex than I expected.Installed from CD using USB connection. There was one error that seemed to come from Windows 7 Pro rather than the install program which stated that PCL had not been installed successfully. Not sure if this is significant? All other software and utilities on the CD installed OK except for TWAIN instalation but all the references in this seemed to apply to connection over a network rather than local printer via USB.I have printed successfully from the computer.Now I want to learn about scanning using the Automatic Document Feeder (Duplex). I initialy want to experiment and scan a multipage document to a multipage pdf file.The program that came on the CD that would seem to be the one to use is called "Actkey"When I start this up there are 4 options "Application 1" "Application 2" "Folder" "PC Fax".I select "Folder" but then get a message "Please check that the device is set to remote PC mode" and can't get any further. What does this mean?
which drivers do I need to download to enable my printer to work? Have spend ages downloading what I thought was the appropriate driver for a Windows 7 Home edition - only to be told it is incompatible.
This is my son,s computer and the download speeds on BT are absolutely atrocious, so it is very frustrating to be told they are incompatible
What i have to do for share my Printer HP 1510 with my brother(Win XP)? Just click Right button and share THE PRINTER don't work! Windows 7 request a Driver CD, when i put, dont load the drivers and when iï¿½m trying to install, the version is for XP and don't install. What i have to do?
having moved once and having add and removed computers from my home network, along with other changes, I now have a cluttered Printer Selection Window, by which I mean the window that pops up when I want to print a document. I have five versions of a Brother printer and four versions of an HP printer, and only one of each is actually good. How do I clean up that window by getting rid of those obsolete references that no longer work? It's ridiculous that they don't simply disappear when I select one of them as the default.
I bought a new wireless Epson Workforce 545 printer. It has worked without flow for quite some time (nearly a year). Now all the suddenly it wont print.I have it as a shared printer. There are three other family members on the network and all three others print without any problem. Mine worked fine and now wont print. It goes through the motions and then times out. All it says is "printer error".
I use Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. My problem is: Whenever I try to print something (word, pdf, or any other file); printer spooler stops working and when I check the Devices and Printers all the printer drivers seem to be disappeared. I checked the Print Spooler" in the Services tool; and set the "Recovery after subsequent failures" option to Restart the Serviceā. Therefore all the printer drives coma back after 1 minute. However the spooler stops immediately again when the uncompleted printing job starts; hence I can not print anything more than a page. Earlier in this forum, someone posted that Microsoft issued a hotfix for this problem ( hotfix 2388142) which can be downloaded from article: [URL]. I downloaded this hotfix and tried to install, however it gives an error message of: The update is not applicable to your computer and quits installation. I did uninstall and reinstall all the printer drives, but this did not help either.
I have 2 computers on my home network. My desktop is running Windows 7 ultimate 32 bit and I have a kodak 5500 Aio connected to it. I also have a laptop that's running windows 7 home premium 64 bit that connects wireless. I was able to print until today and now I can't print from the laptop. I can see the printer in the add printer window but comes up with cannot connect with error of 0x0000000d
my AIO printer is listed in Windows 7 Device manager as printer and fax separately.Printer acts as a fax machine I am not able to use windows fax and scan modem facility in my windows How can I change the present set up
I downloaded Printers' drivers, one for HP and the other for Epson by accessing their web-sites.Both are USB-connection and working fine, however icons of both printers on, ... Start > Device and Printers,.... there are no printers' icons, even though other devices, such as thumb-drive, monitor, keyboard and others.Just wonder why icons of both printers are missing on 'Device and Printer?'
I have an MX850 and an MX870 printer both connected to my LAN.I also use an application called CD Label Print. When I started that program I noticed that there were 3 MX850 printers listed, the original and a (Copy 1) and (Copy 2).So I went to devices and printers and saw there was a MX850 and a MX850 (Copy 2). No (Copy 1). So I removed the (Copy 2) printer and fax.I went back to CD Label print and saw that it still said MX850 and MX850 (Copy 1). Went back to devices and printers and sure enough, MX850 was gone and MX850 (Copy 1) was present. So I pressed F5. It changed to MX850. Press F5 again, it changed back to MX850 (Copy 1).It changes non-stop. It alternates betweem the two settings every time I press F5.I've tried uninstall re-install. I've also contacted Canon support who are dumbfounded. I also had to manually remove the registry entries and start menu entries because the canon uninstaller doesn't so it.I cannot use CD Label print. Each time I try to print a label it insists on asking where to save the file, rather than printing it.
We have just added our first Windows 7 pc to our XP network. I would like to connect to the Windows 7 PC to a shared "Epson lq-590" printer on one of the XP machines.According to the Epson website the only drivers available for this printer are through Windows 7 update in the "add a printer wizard". If the printer is directly attached to the Windows 7 PC the driver installation via "add a printer wizard" works without a hitch. When trying to add the printer over the network the Windows 7 "add a printer wizard" cannot find the driver for the printe
Have an older HP 812C parallel port printer and a new Toshiba laptop with Windows 7 and no parallel ports. Bought a parallel to USB cable but it doesn't work... prints gibberish. Was wondering if there is a way to hook up a wireless print server (with parallel port) and use the printer that way. Unfortunately live in a rural area and still using a slow phone Internet connection. But couldn't this setup be just a simple LAN with no Internet... just signal from computer through wireless print server to old printer?? Would this work?? Apparently, info from HP forums, Windows 7 does have drivers available for this old HP.
My printer keeps giving me the error message "A printer error has occurred, turn off the printer, then press on button to turn on. See your documentation" I have unistalled it held down the on button and cancel button at the same time to print a test paper, but still can't get anything to print.
I've had the worst luck with this HP Officejet 6500.or some reason my computer always sees it as "offlineWell the only way to get it back online is to delete the old printer & add a "New Printer" via Devices & Usually that works even though it's severely a pain in the a**!But now my computer isnt even seeing the printer at all any more to add?I've restarted my computer twice, turned on/off the printer a few times, re-synced the printer within the wireless router successfully & it still isnt showing up.I really need this up & running asap to finish my work, but I also need to get to the bottom of the problem of this stupid thing going "offline" and making me re-add a new printer.It makes using the computer so frustrating. It happens a couple of time a week maybe.
i have a USB hp color laserjet cp 2025 printer and i am using lenovo laptop and i am using windows 7 64bit OP. i am trying to get the printer to work but i am not gettin any luck. i downloaded the driver from the hp website and installed it but i think the problem is with the port which one should i use. i cant use the printer port cuz its a USB printer. and from the list of ports in the add printer wizard the USB port is not there. i can see other ports. i tried selecting a universal port and i wrote USB but nothing is working.
I have a office setup where two of the computers run on windows XP professional and the other two run on Windows 7 home edition. I want to connect all of them to a common printer through the port. Both the computers on win xp have been connected successfully but the other two on win 7 I am unable to connect, seems some patch is required.
Someone just recently got a new Gateway all-in-one desktop computer running Windows 7. He has a slightly older HP deskjet printer connected to it. Each day, a second iteration of that printer appears and sets itself as the default printer. When he goes to print, nothing happens because it is sitting in the queue of that second printer. Yesterday I reset the print spooler by turning it off an on. When done, only the original printer appeared and everything printed fine. Today he called me and said the second printer was back and he can't print.
This evening I was trying to add my printer as a scanner as well, and when I attempted to do that, my computer when nuts on me, and now it will not start normally, and will only start in Safe Mode without networking. I have looked through the forum and found a similar incident to mine, but I can't apply the fix to my computer. I am going to supply the 'minidump' file like the case I looked at earlier.
