How to solve 'error S01'?


1. Verify USB cable is connected directly from USB port of printer and the USB port on back of computer. If not, connect directly to both the printer and computer and try to print. If the printer does not print, go to step 3.
2. VERIFY THAT THE BROTHER PRINTER IS SET AS DEFAULT
This is especially important if you use the print icon to print from within applications. If the Brother printer is set as the default printer, it will have a check mark. If it is not set as default:
To set your Brother machine as the default printer, RIGHT CLICK on the Brother printer and select SET AS DEFAULT (PRINTER).
3. VERIFY THAT THE PRINTER STATUS IS READY AND THE PRINT QUEUE IS EMPTY
A. Click on START, RUN
B. Type: CONTROL PRINTERS and click OK.
C. Locate the Brother printer in the list and hover your mouse over the Brother printer icon. Below is an example of what you may see:

D. If there are any documents waiting in the queue, right-click on the Brother printer and select CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS, depending on your operating system. This should clear the queue.
E. If the status states: USE PRINTER OFFLINE, right-click on the Brother printer and select USE PRINTER ONLINE depending on your operating system. This should set the printer driver ONLINE.
F. If the status states: PAUSED, right-click on the Brother printer and uncheck PAUSE PRINTING. This should allow the printer to resume printing.
G. If the status is ready and no documents are in the queue, attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful, verify the selected port. If USB is the selected port follow step 4. If USB is not selected,change the port to USB, then attempt to print the Windows test page. If not successful proceed to step 4.
4. Turn the printer OFF.
5. Close any open programs.

I have a wireless connection to print but i can


Not all multi-function devices incorporate the ability to scan via a network connection. Since you didn't provide a printer model, I can't look it up to answer this fully. The ability to scan via a network connection is a function of the software that is provided with the printer. Check the documentation to be sure that the printer does indeed support network scanning and then go to the printer manufacturer's website and download the latest application (driver) package to eliminate the possibility of a software issure. The software should install a device in your scanners and cameras (Windows XP) that can then be used as a scanner source for applications within your computer.

I AM ATTEMPTING TO USE THE SCANNER FUNCTION ON A CANON IR2230


Firstly, the machine must be connected to a pc or network. Secondly, you must scan the document to a pc so, after you have switched on, as you have, the scanner so that it says 'online' you will need to go to the pc and 'PULL' the document to the pc from the scanner. However, to do this you will need to have installed NETWORK SCAN GEAR on your PC inorder to SCAN. When you install the software, you will need to DISCOVER the scanner before it will be ready for use. So, a recap:

1. You NEED a program called NETWORK SCAN GEAR on your PC
2 Your ir2230 must be connected to a PC or network
3 You need to DISCOVER your ir2230 from your PC
4 You then need to INSERT picture FROM SCANNER and select your ir2230 from within a program such as WORD using NETWORK SCAN GEAR

Good luck

The problem sounds like a difference in the settings between the two drivers. Can you compare the two drivers' properties? Maybe the server's driver is set for different spooling options. Is the server handlilng other functions at the same time?

Page count


If you don't have the paper manual, check out the manual on Konica-Minolta's website: DI151 User Manual

From page 4-2 and following of the paper manual or page 48 and following of the PDF document: When 12,345 shows on the Total Count display: <the readout shows:> ct 01 23 45
When 1,234 shows on the PM count display: <the readout shows:> CP 00 12 34

To select a Total Check function: Press and hold the Clear/Stop key for three seconds. The total count will be displayed. Press and hold the Clear/Stop key again for three seconds to display the PM count. Press the Clear/Stop key to return to the previous status mode.

From the way it's written in the manual (I've never seen this machine), it sounds like the readout will pop up
ct
01
23
45
ct
... etc., so you may need to have something to take notes on.

Hp 7100 series scanner problem


In most cases this can be resolved by uninstalling the hp software, disconnecting the printer from the computer, still powered up, and reinstalling the correct software for your operating system and not connecting the printer to the computer until the software requests you to. All necessary drivers and software can be downloaded from HP Support.
