Question about Ricoh Aficio 450 Copier

Aficio 450e installation

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 ???

    Done installing it with a parallel cable but now trying to do it with a LAN cable as he wants me to install it on more computers in case d one it is attached to fails. Anyone who knows the basics of a network printer installation pls give me a step by step guide. I just wanna make sure i did it right. Do I need to reboot the printer after i've installed the driver to the pc ?

    What type of cable are you using to connect the copier with? A parallel cable or an ethernet cable?

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?

I am assuming that the Win7 can "see" the Lexmark on the XP machine but not print.

OK, on the Win7 laptop in question:
Click Control Panel > Printers > Add Local Printer
Create New Port = Local Port
Port name is \\yourXPcomputername\Printername

Now Win7 will install a print driver to work with the shared Lexmark printer.

PC not reading printer


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
