Question about PC Desktops

2 Answers

I have A LexMark X9575 all in one printer with supposed automatic double sided printing. It did auto double sided printing for the first few print jobs then it quit and now only allows manual duplexing. I have windows XP Pro. The printer is connected via USB to one of 4 computers on a ETHERNET network. Two of the computers are now with XP SP 3, two are still on XP SP2. How do I get it to auto Duplex? I have tried all kinds of settings and nothing works.

Printing Preferences is the software that controls the printing function when the printer is connected to a computer.

All of the print settings are on the four main Printing Preferences tabs: Print Setup, Advanced, Watermark, and Image Enhancement.

Go to Printers & Faxes, right-click on the printer icon and select Printing Preferences.
Next click the Advance tab and locate and Select 2-Sided Printing.

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

How may i print for Both Side Printing?


Hi,

Both side printing depends on the printer. It's a feature which require a hardware in the printer known as Duplexer. Which automatically turns the paper and prints on the other side. Some printer may not come with duplexer but if they support duplex printing, you can but the duplexer for the specific printer and attach it at the back of the printer.

If your printer supports duplex printing, when you click on print, click print preferences as shown in the fig 1 below.

Fig1

Click on finishing tab >> put a check on Print on both sides under document optoins section

Click Ok to close the preferences window

Click Ok to send the print job to the printer


Below is the series of images showing how to connect a duplexer.

I cant get the Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.0 PDF Printer to work. It comes up with an warning 20225 code; setup was unable to create a new item.


Hi,
I got 2 possible solutions:

Solution 1: Use a supported installation.
-- If you install Acrobat (Professional or Standard) on a 64-bit operating system, you may see this error. Install Acrobat on a 32-bit operating system.


-- If you install Acrobat to a shared network disk instead of a local hard disk, the Adobe PDF printer is not installed. Install Acrobat on a local hard disk.


-- If you install Acrobat to a directory with a path that contains extended ASCII or double-byte characters, English installations will display the error message. Install to a path that does not contain extended ASCII or double-byte characters.


Solution 2: Ensure that the Print Spooler process is running and set to Automatic, and then repair Acrobat.
1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel.


2. Double-click Administrative Tools and then double-click Services.


3. Locate the service Print Spooler.


4. If the Startup Type is not Automatic, set it to Automatic:
a. Right-click the Print Spooler.
b. Choose Properties.
c. Choose the General tab.
d. Choose Automatic in the Startup Type menu.
e. Click OK.


5. If the Print Spooler service is not running, then start it.
a. Right-click the Print Spooler line.
b. Select Start from the menu.


6. Start Acrobat, and choose Help > Detect And Repair.


God Luck!!!!

Go to the Lexmark site. More than likely if the unit is more than a few years old you will not find Vista drivers. Most manuf. have their hands full creating Vista drivers for current products and are making no effort to provide for older equipment. Be prepared to throw it away. It is a problem for many varient Operating Systems: XP64-bit, Linux, etc.

Go to start>run. Type msconfig. Click on the Services Tab. Look for lexbce server in the list. Check it if it's not started or uncheck it if it is.

Go to control panel>printers and faxes. Double-click the lexmark printer icon and check if there are documents in queue. if there are jobs waiting to be done. right click each and delete them. Wait until they are clear. If it doesnt clear out even after a long time, restart the computer. Try to print afterwards.

If this doesn't work, try adding the printer again. Go to control panel>printers and faxes. Click on 'add a printer' on the left pane. Make sure 'Automatically Detect and Install my Plug and Play Printer' is checked. It should detect the printer is it is connected and turned on. Otherwise, try connecting it to another usb port or to another computer. If possible try using another usb cable or installing a known good printer to the computer to check if the cable or printer is bad.
