Printer status reads "printer offline"


Could be several things causing this. You said it is a network printer, but then said primary computer is XP. Is it hooked to the XP machine? From my experience, printers on XP machines occasionally lose their drivers. Go to the XP machine and make sure the printer is in the printer folder, and active. Do a test print to be sure. Then make sure it is still shared (things like this can change with updates). If all this is OK, go to the Vista machine and remove the printer. Then go to add printers, and add a network printer. Sometimes, if it is a network printer, it will show up in "my network" - if so, right click and add printer. If you add the printer usually the computer will use the currently installed drivers. If it is a shared printer, go to network, double click the XP machine, and the shared printer should be there. right click and add. Once you have it working, go to printers and delete or remove the faded-out printers that don't work and be sure to set the newly installed printer as your default.

Vista cannot discover XP hosts


This happens if Vista retains history of network devices that once existed on your machine, but do not exist anymore.

I have an canon pixma mp480 connected to a windows xp home computer. It work fine. I shared the pinter to the network. I got the windows xp connected to that shared printer, but the windows vista computers...


Is the printer connected via USB to the XP computer?
How did you map the shared printer (ie; what port)
When you're on a Vista machine, go to Network, find thw XP computer, explore, can you access the printer through this method? I need to know if Vista machines were set up with this printer on Local Port or Connected to this machine.

Vista cannot connect to xp printer


It sounds like your are using your Windows XP computer as the print server, and you are trying to connect your Windows Vista machine to the Windows XP print server. Your Vista machine is trying to download the XP drivers from the Windows XP computer to your Vista machine. This won't work. Windows XP and Vista print drivers are not compatible.

If the printer is truely networked (it has it's own IP address on the network, it has its own ethernet connection). Then instead of trying to map out to this shared printer, add new printer to the Vista machine using Vista drivers for the HP Deskjet 3940. The type of port you would need is a standard TCP/IP port. To get this address, print a settings page from the printer. Look for either a TCP/IP address or IP address on this print out. This is the port address you want to create and then connect to.

Can't print from Vista Laptop


You need to go to printers and faxes.  Set up a new networked printer.  Take the drivers off of your vista machine, because by using those drivers, vista is thinking that the printer is physically hooked up tot hat computer.
