I bought a new laptop and it came with Windows 7 Premium. I have a Canon Pixma ip3000 printer. I have looked everywhere.My printer is not listed. I tried the trick of choosing USB virtual port and then searching for the latest printers. It still wasn't there.I have the install disk, does not work.
I have just upgraded to Windows 7 ultimate x64. I was using the KonicaMinolta PagePro 1380mf on my vista machine prior to upgrading; however, this company doesn't provide x64 drivers.
I installed the XP drivers in the XP mode (local printer) and set it to share. I also released the printer in XP mode so that it was made available to Win 7.
The result is that Win 7 see it by name but it doesn't recognize it as a printer and I certainly can't do anything with it from Win 7.
I obviously would like to use this printer from Win 7 and would like to know if this is possible. If so, if someone could provide a stepwise procedure for doing this, or at the very least, a link to a previously discussed one. If it comes down to a driver issue (i.e. not having a x64 driver for the printer), then perhaps I'll need to get a new printer. This would be the worst case scenario.
Any help is appreciated. I apologize if such a problem has been discussed before; however, as I said I really couldn't find a perfect solution.
i have 3 desktop..two PC is having a win7 32bit and the other one is 64bit..i install the printer LX-300+II(dot matrix) on the 64bit win7...then of course the three desktop is on a network...the 32bit win7 is the admin..then the 64bit win7 and the 32bit admin can print on the dot matrix..but the other 32bit cannot..both of those 3 desktop are shared..workgroup name is same..sharing properties is same for both 32bit..and both 32bit can connect to the printer and can detect..when i tried to print its just qeue and comes with the word "spooling"..but when i tried printing on a laser printer it prints..but on the dot matrix it cannot print...
ways i tried:
1.check the port/ethernet the UTP cables plug out plug in and wait like around 20 secs. then connect again. 2.reinstall the driver on the 32bit that doesnt print. 3.remove device then add printer again. 4.did a windows update. 5.check if same workgroup. 6.check if shared and with same location and can access both 3 desktop. 7.check the permissions. 8.restart the computer. 9.troubleshooting the printer. 10.make sure there's a network connection.
IP address doesn't have because its a USB port and not suported by the OS..3 desktop on a network...two 32bit win7 one win7 64bit.32bit and 64 bit can print on the dot matrix and laser printer but the other 32bit cannot print on the matrix but can print on the laser..when printing its just qeue with spooling..
I got a new computer powered by Windows 7 which was upgraded to Win 7 Pro. I have it attached to a Xerox Phaser 8400 printer. The printer will not print in color when i use the word pad or Print Master software. It's own self test it prints color so I assume there is a setting I can't find.
I've just taken delivery of a new windows 7 PC, with i5-2500k/8gb/SSD/1TB HDD, Asus p8z68-v lx motherboard. Everything was going fine with setting up until it came to printers.I have 3 printers connected - Brother HL2030 laser, HP Photosmart D6160 and Epson Stylus photo R2400 - and NONE of them will work. All three came up with "your device is installed correctly etc etc" message. I can't print documents or even a test page. I've downloaded and installed Brother's W7 driver - zilch. HP site says you lose most of the functionality of toollbox etc but "the windows 7 default driver should work" - it doesn't. Likewise the Epson. I've tried 3 or 4 times to reinstall them all, deleting each first from the control panel, and absolutely no joy.I'm sure I must be doing something wrong but can't figure
I recently got a new computer with Windows 7 and installed the printer driver for the HP 1018 printer, and it prints from word, excel, pdf, etc., but it will not print from the Internet. It just prints blank pages.
