Question about Toshiba e-STUDIO 16 Printer
On our network we have a PC that acts as a print server for the toshiba e-studio 16 via a parallel cable the pc is a generic dell running XP home. every so often the connection between the PC and the printer is lost (an error comes up on the screen saying the device is is not responding or not attached) usually the only way to fix it is to delete the printer from the printers section in the OS and re install the driver which can be time consuming and a pain in the *** any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. side note: the parallel is relatively new and of a good quality build
It appears from what you say, that the driver files are getting corrupted. Typically this may occur as the HDD or controller fails.. The print server may have begun to reach the end of it's useful life. You might consider replacing this computer with another one, especially if it runs 24/7, and has been doing so for several years.
This type of setup is very reliable, and failures usually relate to pending hardware failure.
Optionally, a printer specific internal or an external print server ( like the HP JetDirect EX ... which you can find used on eBay for under $50.00 ) connected directly to the network will provide a reliable alternative to the computer. It uses fewer resources, fewer components to fail, and is more "green".
