I have been using my HP 5150 printer for a few years using XP on my PC.When I try to print using my laptop using Vista the printer runs very fast and uninstalled it as I thought it may not have installed properly but the same thing happens. It does say that there is a compatable issue with the OS and I have tried to get some info off the HP site but that is not much help. I am considering replacing my PC with one running Windows 7 and now wondering if I will have to change my printer as well.I should perhaps say that currently the printer runs from a USB1 socket but the printer is supposed to run on USB1 or USB2 Any suggestions would be welcome.

Answer:Vista and HP 5150 printer

I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say "the printer runs very fast". But presumably it is not printing very fast (which wouldn't be a problem?). Have you installed the Vista driver for the printer? If not here it is: click hereInstall it with the printer (USB) disconnected, and follow instructions as to when to connect.

hello dear sir
I have the problem with my printers in my office . the printers are HP laser jet 1300 and 2035.
my problems is : After I print a document , printer does not stop and printing white papers until I stop print service or power down the printer.
whenI push ctrl+p  to print ,
some files like shockwave.shd appears in this address." c:\windows\system 32\spooler\printers". and these files never vanished unless i stop the print spooler.
I know that  : The following briefly describes the purpose
of SPL, SHD, and TMP files:

SPL files are the actual spool (print job) files.

TMP files are usually associated with LPR print jobs.

SHD files provide information about which printer the print job was sent to and from
whom the print job came. An SHD file is a "shadow" file that keeps track of what logical printer a (same number) xxxxx.spl file goes to. It also contains the file's order in the queue, the user who sent the file to the printer, and other information.
These files are usually deleted unless the logical printer settings state otherwise.
but these files  never vanished and untils these file were removed manually ,
printer cant print at all.
please help me .

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

Answer:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

I have an HP C5280 printer running wirelessly via a TP Link wireless print server and D Link Di 624 wireless router. I can print successfully from either my desktop (which is connected direct to the D Link router) or either of my laptops (wireless). However, when I select the double-sided print option I get a print error message after re-inserting the odd number pages to print the other side of the paper and then click 'continue'.

Could I resolve this by connecting the printer both direct to the desktop using USB AND leaving it connected via the wireless TP Link print server? This would enable me to print double-sided from my desktop (as I did before when the printer was only connected via the USB desktop port).

Hi, I just purchased an used computer with Windows 7Home Premium x64, this is an HP Slimline s5610f. The problem that I have is with a Brother HL 2040 series printer. It gave me a really hard time to install the drivers that I downloaded from the Brother website I kept getting a "0x00000057" error and "could not find suitable driver for this printer" error. Finally I decided to take the driver folders for this printer from my wife's computer and copied them to my computer and put them in the drivers repository under System32 and was able to install the printer after that with no problems.

The problem that I have right now is that the printer won't print, even though it told me that the driver installation was successful.

1-the print button is grayed out
2-If I click "printer properties" it tells me that the drivers have not been installed and asks if I want to install them.
3-If I install the drivers at this prompt it tells me that the drivers have been successfully installed.
4-Now it lets me access the printer properties but when I click "print test page" either nothing happens or it tells me that it failed to print and access is denied
5-If i close printer properties and try to access it again it tells me that the printer drivers have not been installed.

I get the same results with the printer connected locally trough USB or on another computer through the network.

A client is interested in having external networking ports available for printing to internal, XP-attached shared workstation printers.

Basically, they want to print to external IP address 123.123.123.123:8765 and have IIS push that data to a shared printer at someone's workstation. Ideally we would set up six or eight of these, each with a different port on the public IP.

Any suggestions?

I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1

It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?

Answer:Print Screen button will print to the printer! how to stop

By definition the print screen function only sends the image to the clipboard so if the printer is also involved then something else -- some other software installed on your machine -- is the culprit here.

One way to find out what it is is by unhooking the printer and then watching the screen to see what error messages pop up when trying to use the print screen function.

Hi there,
OK, here we go. I previously owned a Lexmark Z25 printer and up to a certain point, it was printing ok. Then it abruptly stopped printing any pages. It sounded as if it was getting the signal from the computer, but nothing would print. Rather than buy new cartridges, which would have cost more than a new printer, I bought a Dell 720. Now, the color prints fine, but I cannot get the black to print. The cartridges are just about full with only a small amount out of the black cartridge.

I read somewhere this week that it has something to do with the software. I believe there was a work-around, but for the life of me I can't remember where I saw it and I didn't bookmark the page! My other computer is WinXP, but I didn't like XP and the fact that I got hosed on the deal with only 128 RAM - never could track down the guy who sold it to me..Figures. Anyway, I now have a computer with WIN2K. I don't have the software for the Dell printer, but I downloaded the drivers from the Dell site. I do have the software for the Lexmark.

Lately, it seems I've seen Dell and Lexmark being spoken of in the same sentence - are they connected?? A LEXPPS.exe, which is Lexmark corporation, is "listening" according to my Comodo, leading me to believe that Dell and Lexmark have a lot to do with each other.

I'm sure this sounds quite like rambling on my part, but this little problem is driving me crazy right now, and while not really a newbie, I'... Read more

Hi,

The first question I have to ask is "use it with Windows 7 for what?" To connect to a printer? To connect to old computers?

If you want to connect the Windows 7 computer to a printer, it would be helpful to know the printer model. Old Apple printers with LocalTalk interfaces tend to have serial and/or parallel ports as well, and you're better off connecting the computer to those - you'd need one of those on the computer, of course.

If you don't have those, or you need/want to network the printer, and it has a serial or parallel port, look into a serial to Ethernet or parallel to Ethernet adapter and ignore the EtherWave device for this purpose. You can probably pick up an old HP JetDirect external print server dirt cheap on eBay. Many of them have both serial and parallel ports. If the printer has a parallel port, get a JetDirect that has those - they're faster than serial po... Read more

I had a Print Server EUSSO that connected with my old deskjet printer (HP deskjet 845c USB) to my knowledge it working fine...

Though I had bought a new printer (HP laserjet 1020 USB) hook it up to a Print Server but to my amazement, I couldn't get it to work (it working fine, if plug direct to PC)... I set it the way I worked with the old deskjet (HP deskjet 845c USB) and I don't see why it didn't work... Or maybe the Print Server do not support the new Printer? I had visit HP support site, and they just didn't give me any good solution...

Note: upon completing the setup and do a test print; I notice there aren't any error messages display... I see a queue of file on the Printer Document Name last for 2 seconds and dissappear, No errors messages...
But if I try to change the port name/number it will display error message upon printing, and the file on the Printer Document Name didn't dissappear either...

I am so curious why it didn't work?
1. I know it not the printer fault
2. Print Server is not malfunction either (unless it not meant to support my new printer)
3. Not the cable either
4. I don't see any wrong doing with my setup, since I got the first one work and running
5. Now I am sitting duck

Any feed back on this issue would gladly be appreciated...
 

Answer:Print Server won't print on new printer

Did you install the drivers for your new printer? (Obvious, sorry, but I have to ask) Best bet would be to uninstall all printers and printer software you have and start over from scratch.

The print server doesn't have to support your printer - all it does is take the data sent by your computer and forward it to the USB port. Your printer however has to support the print server. Some printers require a bidirectional connection with the computer and that cannot work over the network.

Does your print server suppirt several types of connection? It could be any combination of LPR, SMB, JetDirect and any proprietary protocols. Try something else than you are using right now.

On the off chance that there are no mistake messages directing you toward the issue, check to make certain that the printer is as yet associated, through USB or Ethernet link or—if a remote model—that the Wi-Fi is empowered and that you're associated with the correct system. The printer driver and programming should be introduced on the PC you need to print from. Canon Printer Support It's conceivable that the driver has turned out to be debased; it ought to be reinstalled; check the producer's Canon Customer Support for the most recent form. On the off chance that despite everything it doesn't work, look at the investigating area in the printer's User Manual, and if need be, contact technical support.

I have a Lexmark E312 L Optra printer that was connected via USB to a brand new Compaq Presario running Windows Vista Home Premium. Brand new computer.

We turned off the computer last night due to thunderstorms (we're in Tampa.) Not the printer, though it's connected to a strong surge protector.
The printer worked perfectly well through its' USB connection yesterday.

Then, this morning, there were two problems:
1. First, the printer would only print a test page no matter what we tried to print.
2. Now, the printer doesn't seem to be recognized via USB. No matter what we try to print, it won't. I'm not certain what's going on. It is as if the computer "sees" the printer, but won't communicate with it.

Any suggestions are VERY welcome!

Answer:Help! Printer won't Print!

The printer could still have been zapped in spite of the surge protector. Surge protectors are good for "normal" spikes, but those caused by lightening are not normal.

Try this.

1. Turn off the printer and disconnect the USB cabe and printer power line.
2.Wait about 1 minute and connect the power suppy then the USB cabe.
3. Turn on the printer.
4. See if you can print something.

Only other thing I can think of would be uninstalling/reinstaling the printer to see if that might help.

Hopefully this is a stupid question and it's easy to answer, but for some reason my printer won't print. It is a "Lexmark Z43". The power light on is constantly blinking and I don't know why, and that may be the problem. And even when I unplug and plug back in the printer, it goes back to blinking and I cannot turn it off.

This may be part of the problem for it not printing. The printer is connected properly and everything, and I've tried every other port, and still, it doesn't do anything. Can anybody please give me a suggestion on what to do to solve this problem? Thanks!

A window pops up that says:

Error opening installation log file. Verify that the specified log file location exists and than you can write to it. There's an OK button to press, and I did but then (if I remember correctly) there was a window instructing me to uninstall. I did.

I am totally computer illeratate when it comes to these things and have no idea what all that means. I have no idea what a log file is or where to find out if it exists.............or what to do when it's found.

I did not try to print anything when it was still IE7 so I don't know if it was still working at that time but I'm wondering if upgrading to IE8 has anything to do with this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

If you are using a cd to install from, then I would suggest downloading the driver from HP's website. Click Here for a link. The link is for the PSC 2410, I don't beleive that they have a 2410 SCI.

I have had my printer for about 2 1/2 years and it has been great until about 2 weeks ago. I can make copies but if I try to print from my computer it gets to 55% and then stops and it doesn't print. At the beginning of September it was printing fine, but for the past two weeks I can not get it to print anything. I have tried updating, uninstalling and reinstalling, and restarting the computer, even took it for a long truck ride home to consult with my mom and it still didn't help. Can please help me? I am a college student who has a lot of homework and papers to print and really need my printer to be working.

About a month ago I bought a laser printer. It's a Samsung Xpress Multifunction M2070W. Starting today it will not print. I know the reason as a message comes up saying "Out of toner." I believe that there is still toner in it. This printer (and I'm sure most printers) have a chip that counts the number of pages and when it gets to that number it assumes it's out of toner. I very seldom print a full page and some pages have only a few lines. I called Tech. Support at Samsung and they said that there is a work-around. I talked to 3 different people but didn't understand them as how to do it. I have somewhat of a hearing problem and cannot understand anyone who has an accent. They were all very nice and tried to help but I thanked them and had to give up. My question is: Would anyone know what the work-around may be? Thank you for your help.

I go to print and faxes (in start menu) but it says the print spooler service isnt running!!! So I start up msconfig, click print spooler, click apply, and now msconfig wont close, and I can't close msconfig, therefore, I can't apply print spooler...

So how do I activate print spooler (or just start up the printer) without msconfig???

I have an Epson Stylus CX5400, it is a scanner/printer unit. For the longest time I have not been able to print or scan. I have finally got around to trying to fix it and I'm having no luck. Well actually I've been able to get it to scan now.

The printer SEEMS like it is printing and goes through all the motions, makes noise, paper comes out, but it is blank.

So far I have:
Replaced the cartridges (also made sure they were in right)
Cleaned the ink jets MULTIPLE times
Reinstalled the software
Troubleshooting via Epson website
Contacted Epson via email and followed their directions which basically told me to clean the jets again
They are telling me there is nothing else they can do

This printer is practically new! Any other suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi

I've spent the last 3 hours trying to get a brand new Epson SX515W all-in-one ink jet to print wirelessly from a Win 7 64 bit PC on my network at home.

Printer installation prompted me to download 64bit drivers from Epson, which I did and have installed.

Installation completed without any warnings but I can not get the printer to print wirelessly from the Win7 PC via my D-Link ADSL router. I can't even get it to produce a test print and in the network map the line between the printer and the wireless network SSID is shown as a broken line.

However, The printer is being recognised in the router management console as a connected DHCP client with the expected automatically assigned IP address and I can ping the printer from the Win 7 machine. The wi-fi LED on the printer is on.

I can connect to the printer wirelessly using Epson Net Config and any settings are transmitted to the printer and are included in the network settings test print so the wi-fi connection appears to be working. I have even changed the Workgroup name to the correct non default one in case this is a reason for it not to be recognised.

The printer works fine using the same driver when connected directly to the Win 7 Pc via a USB cable so I'm fairly sure it's not a driver problem.

What I also do not understand is that although I can't print, I can scan when the machine is connected wirelessly, but only using the basic scanner interface, not Epson Scan, which is only available... Read more

For network ready HP all-in-ones there are big installation programs to set everything up. Does Epson use that technique? If so, is that how you installed?

It wouldn't print. I looked in the print spooler ("See What's Printing"). It was empty.

I ran the HP Print and Scan Doctor. I selected the right printer and clicked on "Fix Printing".

It said "Everything checks out OK with your product".

I clicked on "Test Print".

It said "The printer should have printed out a test-print for evaluation."

But it hadn't, so I clicked "No print".

It suggested printing an internal test page. I clicked on "Test Print". It printed the internal test page just fine. It said "Did the test page print correctly?" I clicked on "Yes".

It then said:

'There is a problem with your software that cannot be fixed by this tool. Remove the software by clicking "Uninstall". Reinstall the software with the product CD or by downloading the most current Full Feature software from HP Customer Care.'

I clicked on "Uninstall", and the good doctor said:

I can no longer print anything from the command of>

but when I print Via Ctrl-P shortcut, it sometimes works.

The printer worked fine until last saturday.
No major software changes have been installed either.

I have tried deleting documents from the pending que via the Control panel, but occasionally the print pending list clogs up and wont delete anything and I have to re-start the baby.

I have checked the communications lead (USB) and the printer on a second computer and it all works fine.
I have tried plugging the device into all three USB ports but no change.
The device doesn't seem to show up under the USB hub device manager either?

I have un-installed and re-installed the printer and drivers and updated them from the Lexmark website.
Occasionally in Control panel there are two printers displayed, both are the same model one is a copy of the other installed one.

If it is a shared IRQ address conflict, how does one solve it?

Still amateur.
 

Answer:Why won't my printer ..Print ??

Last Saturday isn't so long ago.

Try running "System Restore" and choosing a prior date. These can be undone if you like.

Start > run: msconfig > Launch System Restore.

You say you are having problems deleting pending items -- if the printer is networked -- make sure the items are not associated with documents on another computer.

Delete any "printers" from the Control panel that are not active.

There is a way to clean install printers -- but it involves some registry editing and your best bet is to try System Restore first.

I have a machine with windows 98 on it and a machine with Windows XP Pro with a usb printer attached. I am trying to get the Win98 machine to print to it. The machines are connected through a D-Link router and the XP machine can find the win98 one without a problem. When I try to browse the entire network on the Win98 machine I get an error that the network is not accessible.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks
 

Answer:Print from Win 98 to printer on Win XP

Try telling it manually the locaction of the machine in the windows explorer. For instance if you have one machine named TheOne and one machine named TheOther. You would do type \\theone to see the stuff on the one computer and \\theother on the other. Make sure file/print sharing is present on the 98 computer.

If you can manually access the XP computer from the 98 you can just add the printer with \\TheOne\\Printername location when it asks you where the printer is. Make sure to make the computer names and printer names easy to type/remember Like mine might be \\dev\hp1012 for the printer for example.


There's lots of possible causes and solutions for not able to access other computers. Browsing the network doesn't tell you much, but manually typing in the computer will help you. Also you can use the SEARCH/FIND feature in windows to look for a computer. Often you can't browse to a comptuer but you can manually locate it.

Recently I cannot print to one of two printers attached to our Dell Dimension E510 desktop. Depending on the application in use at the time the message that appears is ?Internet Explorer or MS Word has encountered a problem and needs to close?. I installed Service Pack 3 for Windows XP, ran Microsoft?s Malicious Software Removal Tool, updated our McAfee Security Suite and ran a scan of the computer, and re-installed the drivers for the printer (an Oki B4250). No viruses or malware was found by the scans. The problem persists. Changing the default printer to our other printer (an HP Deskjet 882C) now allows us to print. But I need to get the Oki back online.

Here are the error signatures I gathered when I tried to print to the Oki:

AppName: iexplore.exe

ModVer: 1.0.6.0

fDebug: 0

When I tried to view the properties of the Oki printer in Control Panel I get ?Function address 0x68636d0d caused a protection fault (exception code 0xc0000094). Some or all property pages may not be displayed?. And sure enough, no property pages were displayed. I was able to print the printers test page so the printer itself works.

What should I try next?

I got a new Lexmark X2500 all-in-one a couple weeks ago. It came with a color cartridge only, but at first it worked with only 1 cartridge.

But I only printed a half dozen or so pages the first few days, then when I would try to print, it would pop up a box showing a question mark on the black cartridge.

So I got a black catridge and put that in. Yes the tape is off of it and yes the black and color cartridges are in their correct slots.

Now it won't print because it says that the cartridges have to be realigned, and I need to print a realignment page. But when I try to print the ralignment page, nothing happens.

The computer IS communicating with the printer, because if I put a picture or something on the scanner, the Lexmark Imaging Studio is able to scan it and show a preview on my monitor. But then it won't print the scanned image because the cartridges aren't realigned.

I've tried printing webpages just to test it, and cartridges aren't realigned.

Ugh.

I can print excel, Word, etc but when I go and try to print a PDF, the progress screen on my PC starts at 0% and stays ther for about 5 sec, them immediately hops to 100% and disappears. The Printer lights up as if it is going to print, then the Printer goes back to ready and nothing prints. Any ideas?

My HL1440 printer died. With that printer I was able to print from windows XP as well as from Peachtree 10.0 version which is a DOS program. This program requires a parallel cable port
as well as a printer that will emulate HL8PS printer or HP Laserjet I or something similiar.

I called Brother, but they stopped making HL1440. I do have HL2040 with a parallel cable, but
according to Brother, they do not have DOS driver for that printer.

Is it possible to find a printer in the market that will help. I do not want to change my software,
because I cannot find printer with parallel cable and DOS driver.

I will appreciate any help.

Best regards,
Gulab Gidwani
 

Answer:Need a printer to print from DOS

You're better off moving to a USB printer as few systems now support Parallel connections.
A USB printer is rather cheap these days and if you move to better OS or Application, then it will still be supported.
Why waste time with 1998 technology?

Its a Xerox 390 laser. I was working last year. It seems to get the message to print, because it will be saying: PRINTING in the clear window, but it won't print. Anyone know about printers?
 

Answer:PRINTER!! Won't print

So a little more info would help.. does it sound like the printer is warming up? Does it make clicking noises like it is attempting to pick up paper? Does it spit out a blank page? Does it have a test page/ diagnostics function? Usually there is a menu in the LCD or a function of pressing buttons at the same time...

You have prolly had this question before, so I ask your patience if you have. We have an HP 722c printer...it used to work with XP. but since we had the comp serviced it no longer does so. I have tried to download drivers from HP but this has not worked...any suggestions would be welcome to remedy this situation...a new printer is out of the question...and we still have windows 2000 and 98 and 95 lying around to reconfigure the comp if we need to, but then I will need advice on how to do this properly...thank you in advance for any and all help.

I added a printer,it seems that the printer works and the software is on the computer but nothing prints. I bought a Belkin USB parallel printer adapter cable and it says to update the USB software. Any ideas on how to do this? I have windows XP and an Epson Stylus Color 850 printer. I been unable to find the software
 

Answer:My printer don't print.

I assume that your printer has a LPT port only and that you want to convert it to a USB port? If your computer has an LPT port on it then I suggest that you try and get it running with that first. Then put the LPT to USB cable in, install the drivers for that cable, and give it another go.

Hi - I am new and this is my first post and I am not very tech knowledgeable, so please excuse my ignorance. I bought a new computer loaded with Win 7 Pro (32 bit). I installed all of my programs and everything worked fine, until I tried to set up my HP printer - which both Win 7 & HP say is Win 7 compatible (though it is an older printer). Windows Update found the printer, downloaded the driver and set it as my default printer with a big green arrow saying "Ready." When I try to print something (no matter the source) I get a pop up that indicates the document is being sent to the printer, then nothing happens, as if it just times out before the printer ever receives the signal (no flashing lights on printer - nothing). Then I check the printer queue and it is in there with an error. I delete the job and then check the printer in the control panel - and it has a big yellow ! - so I run troubleshooting and it says that it couldn't print because another job is in the printer queue.

I have tried all the suggestions for stopping the printer spooler and clearing the queue and restarting the spooler - and then everything appears to be OK again ready to print, (I get the big green arrow ready sign on printer icon again) - but then the same thing happens again. I have even tried another HP printer and all is the same. I have installed both printers, removed both printers, restored the machine back to arrival time, started everything all over, run MS's Mr. Fix It prog... Read more

I have a new Toshiba (intel pentium) laptop with Windows 7 on it. It runs on wireless internet. I can't get either of my two printers (Canon ip1700 and Canon MX300) to print when I try to print from my Toshiba.
My desktop computer is older and has Windows XP, and I can print from both printers using my desktop computer.
What do you think could be the problems with why I can't print with my laptop? Thanks for your help.

Answer:Printer won't print

You need to go to Canon.com and download drivers for win 7 (either 32 or 64 bit) depending what you are running.
Then go and edit your system specs under User CP at the top in case we need to follow up or you have another problem.

I'm stumped! Apparently so is Microsoft and HP.

I have an HP DeskJet 820Cse that's been a workhorse, and worked on my desktop computer until it went in to be worked on (for five months, but that's another story).

During that time, it worked on my laptop (also a MS XP Pro OS) - and still works on my laptop...but it does not work now that my desktop is back with a new motherboard.

I've removed the printers and drivers and reinstalled them as instructed about 5 times now, and have tried "other" ports (yes, it's NOT plug and play), but always get a "document failed to print" message that troubleshooter cannot help me with.

Can you? Thanks for your thoughts!!

I tried to print something then the piece of paper got crinkled in the printer. I successfully got it out (nothing was torn off inside, the paper was intact) and now my printer won't print. I tried shutting my computer off and turning it back on and the printer printed but only blank pages. I also tried unplugging it for 3 or 4 hours, that didn't work either. I went to the printer and canceled all the prints and tried to do it again, yet no avail. What's wrong with my printer? How can I fix it? Please help,

C.J.
