I get error 'Unable to find destination PC-Check the PC' on Kyocera Mita


Hi.

This error means that there is a communication problem between the printer and the computer that is receiving scanned file. The error is usually prompted on network installed printers.

Check to ensure that the Scanner File Utility software is running and the computer is able to receive data.
Try restarting the computer and printer. Disconnect both units from power supply for five minutes before restarting.
Check if you have firewall or security software active on computer that can block communication from scanner. Ensure that the scanner utility is listedas an exception on firewall settings, if the application is not present, then you need to add it to allowed applications list.
Ensure that you have granted Scanner Utility access to system resources if asked.
Reinstall printer software and driver on PC. This can be done either using the disk provided with the printer, or using the download from Mita website.
Test the computer network cable. If cable is worn it can cause communication errors. This problem is usually occurring on LAN (network) printer installation. If using local installation via USB, then test using a different USB cable. If USB cable is damaged or too long (over 10 m.) , then you may get the error stated on local installation.

The most common reason for this problem is firewall settings or network problems. Network problems may be difficult to troubleshoot. Remember also that there is a built in firewall in the router resident software. If the router is set to block inbound communication from printer to computer, or if printer and computer are in two different IP ranges (eg. 192.168.1.xxx and 192.168.2.xxx), then you may get communication between computer and printer blocked by router firewall.

Here a setup manual (click to download), also ensure that you have performed scanner setup correctly.

Here also Kyocera Mita download driver page:Kyocera's managed print services .

I don't think you have connected the printer as a network printer. If you have just connected the printer to the computer, the firewall will not block anything to the printer. If it says system doesn't meet min. requirements, try increasing the RAM of the computer. That will probably help!

It might be firewall, or in my case I was connected to my office over VPN. VPN connection from my PC blocked printer communication. Disconnected VPN and it started working.

Printer errors


Go to control panel and delete the printer icon from there. Unplug the printer, restart the computer, when the computer is back on, reconnect the printer... This should automatically create another printer icon in "printers and faxes" ... try printing the windows test page.
