Can't print from Vista to networked printer

I'm trying to set up this printer to print from a Vista notebook. The printer is connected on the local network (192.168.1.50) where it's been for a while, printing from XP machines. I downloaded the Vista 32-bit drivers from the K-M website (though they're labelled Win2k-xp) and followed the instructions to the letter. It didn't install to print to FILE, it did install to print to the correct port.

Konica Minolta Printer Status Monitor Center says Printer is Ready. But when I print anything, either test page or other, the print queue says "Printing - Printer Busy or Error". While I was typing this (and with that message in my print queue) I got someone else to print to it from an XP machine that's been using it for months, and it worked fine.

I can ping 192.168.1.50 from this Vista machine.

Thanks for any help you can offer!

    Okay I fixed it. It's embarrassingly simple but I had installed using the PostScript instructions instead of the GDI (Windows printer?) instructions. :(

    It still installed printing to port not FILE (the latter is wrong but how they claim Vista will do it). Test page printed fine.

How resolve cannot "Connect to Network Printer" with Windows Vista


One of the more interesting errors in Windows Vista happens when you try to connect to a shared network printer. Most of the time you'll receive an "Access is Denied" error when trying to connect even though you can see the printer on the network and everything else is working properly.
Everything else on the network appears to work properly, shared files, internet access, etc. However, you just cannot access the ahared printer and print.
The solution is to add the printer as a local printer and then try printing. Follow the directions below to accomplish this.
f114c08.jpg

1. Go into Control Panel 2. Underneath the Hardware and Sound category, click on Printer 3. Click on Add a printer from the top menu 4. Click on Add a Local Printer 5. Choose Create a New Port with type of port remaining Local Port, then click Next 6. In the Port Name box type the path to the printer you wish to connect to and Click Ok
Ex. \\mycomputer\myprinter
If the computer you wish to connect to is named Bob and the printer is called HP then the path would be \\Bob\HP
7. In the Install Printer Driver screen, select your printer from the list or choose Have Disk and find the location of the printer drivers on the computer then click Next and then click Finish. 8. You should now see the printer installed in the Printers window. 9. Right-click on the printer and click Properties 10. On the General tab, click Print Test Page to test the printer.
You should now be able to printer from Windows Vista to this networked printer without any problems.

Network printer printing rubbish when printed from Vista


The problem with dot matrix printers is that these are very old printers and you may not find a printer driver for them that run with Vista. If the incorrect printer driver is installed, the printer will print rubbish.
The only suggestion I can offer is to try various generic printer drivers until you find one that works. Connect it to the LPT1 printer port first and when you get it to work then set it up on the print server.
Also try Panasonic support and ask if they have a printer driver for this model printer that works with Vista.

Make sure the printer has been connected locally first and that the print drivers have been installed. This should then allow you to add the printer via the set up.

Printer wont print from notebook even tho it prints from desktop on a home network, My notebook is a hp pavillion 6915nr with windows vista home premium oper system


To get it to print from your notebook you will first have to install it on the notebook as a network/shared printer. To do this you'll run the add hardware wizard/printers making sure the printer is on and connected to the network. Once windows installs the printer driver you should be all set. Hope this helps.

Dell 3300 Printer Adapter and Vista


Vista is tricky when adding networked printers.  
Add printer by using a local device, not a networked device.  Assume the printer is connected locally to the machine.

Taking Time to Print


that is a network problem between the laptop and the PC. Look for your network settings and adjust them.
Use a tool like pctools to identify your network problems. Vista and Xp sometimes have a problem
