    Drivers, Software, lost C.D....come this way!



    If you have lost you cd or don't know how to install your printer then all you need to do is download the drivers and software from the manufactures website that suits your operating system and printer.

    Drivers and software download areas for brands listed below, just click to gain access and then locate driver for your needs.

    Brother Epson Sharp Canon Lexmark OKI Dell HP Kyocera Samsung Konica/Minolta Xerox Panasonic

    PLEASE NOTE

    When installing drivers/software it is generally a good practice to -




    · Delete old/previous installs
    Leave printers USB cable disconnected from computer until newly installed software requests it to be connected

I've had a similar problem trying to print to a printer that was not on my laptop but connected to the network through a desktop that was connected to the WiFi router and a cable modem.

If you can see the printer, maybe the driver is already installed.
In my experience, I had to log on as the administrator to print to the printer but I have windows 7 on all 4 of my computers.

I don't have xp anymore.

Maybe xp is the problem.

Pixma MP780 that will not print


Hi

If you have installed the driver and can print out a test page that means your computer is communicating with your printer.

Try to use wordpad and before you print, hit on ctrl-p then choose the pixma as your default printer. then try to print the document, you can use microsoft word as well for testing.

keep me updated

Canon MP780 Printer Problem


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Printer won't work


Flashing led lights indicate the printer is malfunctioning so we can mostly rule out pc issues. Does the carriage for cartridges roll to left as if ready to install cartridge when you open up the unit. Try this. If it wont it is most likely jammed in avery small way. My own printer did this. It turned out my little 2 yr old decided to play post the tiny piece of cardboard, and after diagnosing for 2 hours, error messages and all i found the tiniest jammed carboard piece with a set of tweezers right in the end near the cartrigde carriage, between the teeth of the paper roller and the carriage. You could get lucky and have the same issue. Also make sure all print jobs are cancelled, and check is drivers and device is actually functioning ok, go to control panel, performance and maintenance, system, hardware, devices, scroll down to your printer, and make sure no yellow exclamation marks appear.
