Question about Sharp AL-1540CS All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Al-1540 only scans, wont print says-data could not be sent to pri

I have a al-1540 cs, it scans alright. but whenever i try to print with it, the printing status window says -"pc cannot send data to printer. pls check power and printer cable connections and retry printing". it was working fine earlier, now suddenly this message, i have ofcourse changed the cables. and the fact that it is able to scan makes me think that the cable should be fine.

thank you

It seems that the computer was trying to send the data to the printer through the wrong port. i went to the control panel in windows xp, and selected printers and scanners. and added a new printer (manually) as al-1540 cs on usb port 2. it alerted me that the software was not signed, i proceeded anyways. it asked if i wanted to keep the original printer , i said yes. and the test page printed away. so i would suggest people with similar problem to keep adding multiple copies of the printer again and again on usb ports 1,2,3... etc till it prints the test page. use the copy no. indicated in the printed test page to do all your print jobs in the future.

I think the problem is that lexmark never made this printer mac os compatible. I have one and the disk it came with was for windows only, while i have a 3300 series and that came with a disk for both windows and mac.

AL1641 CS won't make two sided copies anymore


Sounds like a driver or configuration problem, 1st) Make sure when you are printing, to go to Properties, you must choose 2-sided printing each time on that model, some programs won't allow you to change your printers settings.
2nd) go to control panel/ printers/ Al-1641, right click, properties, In the first tab General it should say at the bottom (Double sided - Yes) If not you need to delete the driver, a fairly common problem, and reload the driver, get the driver from Sharps website to be sure you have the most current driver, if a driver is corrupt it won't tell you there is a problem, make sure it allows you to print two sided.
