Tip & How-To about Office Equipment & Supplies

Having problems installing or with the install of your all in one

The biggest problems people report having are: my scanner doesnt work; it wont communicate; the install wont completly install; it prints and copies but it wont scan.
here is what i feel is probably the most important thing to remember when installing any all in one.

1:disconnect from the web and disable your antivirus prior to begining your installation of your new all in one.

reason: many antivirus software programs see scanner drivers as virus like activity and will prevent thier installation in part or as a whole.

If you are downloading drivers or installation software from the web. Save the files to you desk top. disconnect from the web,disable your antivirus, and run the install from the desktop

epson cs5500 scanner software wont work


try downloading the latest drivers from epsons website. if coping is working and printing is working, it sounds like a software problem. Its possible there is a bug in the scanner part of the drivers.

Print Quality Problem with Brother 2820 Fax


sounds like you are using generic drum and toner. try OEM (brother brand). you say copies are coming out completely gray. try printing an internal report from the control panel. if that is gray or received faxes are gray, then the problem is not in your scanner area, and i would wager you are using "generic" supplies.

Canon mp610 scanning problem


The readme says that some USB hubs have an issue.

I was having problems and was connected via a hub. I removed the hub and connected the printer directly to the back of the PC and voila scanning is all good.
