Plug and play does not work for Canon printers I don't think. For some printers windows will find the drivers via windows update but otherwise you need to install the driver yourself. You can get it on your CD or otherwise download it here: http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010322.asp

I have just upgraded my PC to iCore 7 with Windows 7 64bit OS, however when printing to Fuji Xerox Docuprint C2100, the gradiation on the photo is pixelated and not smooth. What printer settings do you...


Did you use plug and play or did you follow the install programs' directions? If you use plug and play, many features do not work.

If you did plug and play, uninstall the printer, download the current install program from Xerox (free), presuming they make one... Some printers and lots more scanners do not work with newer OS...

THEN, use the interfact that Xerox (likely) provides, to run the printer.

Newer printeres and scanners are now NETWORK based, meaning non hosted by a computer. You have to run installs on the printer AND every machine, but then anyone can scan, for example, as if they hosted the scanner.....

I suggest that you run the scan from a computer and not from the printer, it works tons better. Each computer needs to have the install program run on it, NOT PLUG AND PLAY. Plug and play will make most stuff work, but not everything.
Further, HP printers are fussy about exactly when to connect the printer, get the correct install program for your printer and OS from HP.com, and install following the directions exactly.
Scanning is the one function that never works with plug and play.

How do you run a print test for an HP deskjet F355 all-in-one printer?


This is invoked at the printer properties and set up page. Look for print a test page.

HP printers often perform poorly if hooked up using Plug and Play. Download the latest install software directly from HP, and follow directions exactly, no plug and play. All computers need the same install for networked printer (meaning not hosted and shared).

"No Printer Found"


This sounds like your OS is not recognizing plug and play devices. You can try to do manual install from a CD or Manufacturers site.Just go to control panel and printers and click add printer and click add local printer and just follow the prompts. Make sure printer is unpluged from the pc before installation wizard tells you to plug it in since some will not install if plugged before driver or software installation. Hope this helps.

"Installing driver software" every time I plus it it


It is not installing it like it did the first time you plugged in the printer, but it is recognizing the device is now attached to the PC - so it is enabling the driver so you can use the printer. It is the nature of plug and play. You plug, it enables the driver, so you can 'play'...

Problems installing a printer


You can follow the steps below to install a resident printer driver which is part of your operating system.
NOTE: Windows should detect and automatically install devices attached via the Parallel or USB ports on the computer. You should be able to attach the printer, and the "Plug and Play" feature will install the appropriate driver.
If the driver does not automatically install, please contact your Computer vendor. The "Plug and Play" feature may be disabled within your computer.
The resident driver installation should only be used if the printer is not detected and installed.
1. Start by opening the "Printers and Faxes" window. Click on "Add Printer" on the left hand side of the screen.
2. The "Add Printer Wizard" screen will come up. Click on "Next".
3. At the "Local or Network Printer" screen, select "Local Printer" and place a check on "Automatically Detect and Install my Plug and Play Printer". Click on "Next".
4. Windows should report it will check for Plug and Play hardware. It should also detect and install the appropriate resident printer driver.
5. A window will appear and tell you when the process is completed.
*NOTE: If Windows does not detect your printer automatically, you can manually install the printer. Simply select EPSON under manufacturer and select your appropriate model under PRINTERS.
6. When the printer is installed, it will ask you if you would like to print a test page. Check "Yes", then click on "Next".
7. The next screen will display the settings for the printer. Click on "Finish" to complete the installation and print the test page.
