In Windows, how do I install my printer? Most new printers, especially USB printers, come with installer programs. If you have neither installation instructions nor an installation program, you can use one of the following procedures to install most printers:
USB printers (Windows 98, Me, 2000, and XP only)

  1. Make sure that the USB cable is unplugged from your computer and your printer. USB devices work differently from older devices and usually need to have the drivers installed before you connect the device.

  2. If you have an installation disk, insert it into the drive. If there is an installer provided, it should run or be executed here. Follow its instructions, and it should take care of installing your printer in a few moments.

  3. If you don't have an installation program, plug the USB cable into your computer and your printer. This should trigger the Add New Hardware Wizard.

  4. Click Next, and then select Search for the best driver for your device. Click Next.

  5. Uncheck all options except Specify a Location. Click Browse. Browse to the disk, CD, or directory where your printer drivers are located. Click OK, and then click Next twice. Note: You can download some drivers from the web. Consult the web site of your printer's manufacturer, or see Where can I find driver updates for my Windows computer?
  6. When all the files are copied, click Finish.

  7. Turn on your printer. Windows should detect the printer's presence and finish the installation. If the option to print a test page is offered, do so. This will confirm the installation. Click Finish.
Parallel port printers Windows 2000 and XP
  1. In Windows XP default view, from the Start menu, select Printers and Faxes, and then double-click Add Printer. In Windows XP Classic view, or in Windows 2000, from the Start menu, select Settings, then Printers, and then double-click Add Printer. This will start the Add Printer Wizard. Click Next.
  2. Select Local printer or Local printer attached to this computer. Click Next.

  3. Select the LPT port.

  4. Select the manufacturer and model for the printer you are installing. If you would rather use the driver disk that came with the printer, insert that disk and click Have Disk, and then browse to the driver disk and the proper folder. Click Open, then OK. Sometimes at this point, you will be asked if you print from MS-DOS programs. Most people can safely answer No here, but if you print from any DOS-based programs, answer Yes.
  5. Windows will offer a name for the printer that you may change if you like. If this is your only printer, or you wish to use this printer most of the time, select Yes to make this the default printer.

  6. You will be given the option to share this printer on the network. Unless you specifically want to do this, select Do not share this printer. Click Next.

  7. Make sure the printer is connected and turned on, and then answer Yes to print a test page. This will ensure that your printer is working. After the page has printed, click Finish. Your printer should be ready to use.

Hi , I have a problem with zebra 105sl printer , everytime i print somthing i have to make changes to the settings , eg. make it darker .When i save the settings permenent next time i go tto print i have...


The settings in the printer driver are overriding the saved printer settings.
Do this:
1. Correct the printer settings and save them permanently.
2. Print saved configuration for future reference and to see if it changes.(Power on while holding cancel)
3. Print a label from computer.
4. Print configuration again (Power on while holding cancel).
5. Compare the 1st and 2nd printouts. If they are different then the printer driver is changing the printer settings. In other words the printer settings and the driver are different and the driver settings will override the printer settings before printing.
6. Change the driver settings and this won't happen. Increase the darkness setting in the driver.

How can i adjust the scanner to scan DARKER?


Hi,

From the scanner menu in the “Advanced mode settings”, you can find the buttons for color settings.
Using Color Settings buttons, you can adjust the brightness and contrast of the whole image, specify highlights and shadows, and adjust the contrast and balance in an image.
Favorite Settings enables you to save a set of settings (Input Settings, Output Settings, Image Settings, Color Settings and Preferences) made for the focal cropping frame. If there are no cropping frames, settings for the whole preview area are saved.
You can also recall the saved settings and apply them to the selected frames or the whole preview area.

And you can adjust the scanner to scan darker.
Please find the explanation pictures attached.
Hope this helps.

All the best.

I set the printer settings, save. When the printers power is turned off, the saved setting are lost- why?


Check in the Configuration Menu for your "Power on" configuration set. It is most likely set to "Factory Default" Change to your custom set (1,2,3 etc) and save. Make sure you save your set again after you set this (you just changed the config so save it)

Duplexing


Someone has changed the settings on the unit. If you go into Additional Functions press set on Common Settings scroll to Paper feed switch and set it for Speed Priority not Print Side for each category. The only other thing that would cause this is that each individual setting was set for 2-sided in which case you would want to check Additional Functions and each one Copy Settings, Printer Settings and Fax settings.
