I've tried to add the Aficio 450e printer to the pc (Windows XP) using the LTI port but there seems to be no communication between the pc and the printer. Also tried by adding it by creating a TCP/IP port but it does not seem to response when i sent a test page for print. Strange thing is there is response when i try to ping it. Does anyone have any idea how i can add this printer ???

Re: Aficio 450e installation
First find out the gateway address of your router. Then pick an address for it. If the gateway has an address of 192.168.0.1 then the ip address could be 192.168.0.100. Press the user tools/counter button. Look for IP address in the settings. Usually it is in the interface section. Once that is assigned you don't have to restart the copier.
Once you get that done, then you have to assign an IP address to each machine by creating a port. On the computer that you installled the parallel printer to is a good one to start with. Are you using Vista or Windows XP on your computers?

Try setting the printer up this way, go to Add a Printer, Add a local printer, select create a new port. Choose Standard TCP/IP Port. Input the static IP address. Next choose Standard. Select the driver for your printer
Don't know why this becomes an issue with these type of HP printers but i think ive worked a way around it...
Heres how you do it: (XP)
Control Panel>Printers and faxes>
Then select "Add printer" and choose the first option (Local printer attached to this computer)
An errormessage will appear saying they were unable to find printer. Click next to find the printer manually...
Now select "Create a new port" and choose standard TCP/IP... Ignore the
list of different types of printers, now select "From Disk" and then
click next... Once The computer recognizes the printer, it all should
be in order...
With the Lexmark printers communication subsystem you MUST let the driver ask for you to plug in the printer. DO NOT plug the printer into the USB port until told to do so.
To fix a fouled install: (1) Uninstall the Lexmark drivers in Add Remove Programs (2) Shutdown the computer (3) Disconnect the printer from the USB port (4) Restart the computer (5) Run the Driver Installation software (6) Cancel ALL attempts by windows to auto install the printer (7) When the software asks for the printer connect it and continue

connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!
