Canon BJC80 printer does not work with Windows Vista


Did you have the Vista Driver for this, if not, you can find it and download it from the Canon Website and it should work, if it still doesn't, let me know and please tell me if the computer recognizes it and any more details that you can give that may help figure out why it won't work

I installed a vista driver for my allinone HP photosmart c7280 but the operating system does not recognize my printer. The software has installed though. Is there anything I can do to get Vista to...


Just make sure service "printer spooler" is running. To open windows Vista service under 'Run' type 'services.msc', then have a look that service is running or not. You can just simply right click to start it.

COMPUTER SAYS PRINTER IS OFF LINE HAVE TRIED MULTIPLE CABLES


Hi,
did you try uninstalling the printer drivers and re-installing?
Drivers are here:

http://support-au.canon.com.au/P/search?model=PIXMA%20iP100&filter=0&menu=Download

Assuming you are running WinXP go here:
http://support-au.canon.com.au/P/search?model=PIXMA+iP100&menu=download&filter=0&tagname=g_os&g_os=Windows%20XP

If you are using something else like Vista or Windows 7, change the selection at the right hand side of the web page, then select the driver software. Do not select x64 unless you are running a 64 bit operating system. It is highly likely you are running a 32 bit version of XP, Vista or Win7.

Does the printer get recognized on another laptop or computer? If it gets recognized then there is nothing wrong with the printer and cable. In that case, on your computer it's the driver or perhaps you have a dodgy USB port. Can you try another USB port on your computer?
Cheers,
Steve

I just got a Pro 205 printer . The software that came with it microsoft dosn't recognize so I need one that microsft will recognize. Thank you. arrow13@verizon.net


Hi. There are Microsoft drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. If your using Vista or Windows 7, check if it's running on 32-bit or 64-bit operating system by going to Start > right click on Computer > Properties. Then click on this link to the Lexmark website. http://bit.ly/9faEwK . On the bottom of the page, you'll see dropdowns for Microsoft, Macintosh and Linux/Unix operating system. For Vista, choose Microsoft Vista for 32-bit or Microsoft Vista X64 for 64-bit. For Windows 7, choose Windows 7 for 32-bit or Windows 7 X64 for 64-bit. Download the Driver but not the Firmware update. Hope this helps.

Hp photosmart 3210 software is not recognizing


If that's the case the best way to resolve this is to download the printer software and use that in installing the printer to your Vista computer, you can download the printer software from this link.

Windows vista does not seem to recognize HP 4P printer


WOW!? HP4P... I don't think you'll find a Vista Driver for that printer.

Try www.hp.com in the downloads section.

Good luck from a crusty old HP Printer Tech.

Photosmart 3310 is on network but not recognized wirelessly


Sounds like another Vista Bug, i would check the HP site for this issue and if its under warranty, contact HP. If you have alot of Blue tooth devices hooked up, it may be that its trying to use another device in its place or the signals are getting crossed, im not positive.

Its like when you have to many network drives all hooked up and you plug in a USB device, Windows pops up those anoying bubles saying its detected, but in My computer it doesnt show.

So bassically you have to right click my computer, manage, disk management listed uder storage, right click on the device or drive and change the drive letter to something like " W" or " Z" or anything not in use.

It may be a siomilar case with your bluetooth, youo may have to much stuff connected. Try redoing everything like you have so many other times before, and then limiting how many bluetooth devices you have connected at the same time. see if theres a difference.

Hope this helps.
