Please follow the following steps.



1) Turn off the printer.

2) Shutdown the PC to which the printer is connected.

3) Remove the USB/Serial cable through which the printer is connected to the PC and reconnect it back.

4) Now switch ON the PC(only PC and not the printer)

5) Let the PC boot up and login to windows.

6) Now switch on the printer, PC should detect the printer automatically now.


Now you will be able to print.If not then follow the following steps.




Please be informed that any Printer Driver software depends upon the hardware make and Operating System. You need to know all these information's to do get going.

Please find the Driver software's of your printer inside the installation disk provided with the Printer at the time of purchase. As you have not mentioned your Printer make I am unable to give you the direct download link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company that manufactured the Printer.


Even here you need to be careful to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the Printer Model number and the OS that you are using.



To install just Double clock on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.




If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote for best answer.

Thanks.

My HP 8600 Premium no longer sends or accepts FAXes. It says it's connecting, but never does. And returns error 344. I know the other fax machines are working fine. Please advise.


Here's a document that explains some on the fax error codes: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?objectID=buu02549
The code 344 indicates noise or static on the line and usually the best way to get around that is to disable Error Correction Mode and/or lower the fax speed.
To disable the Error Correction Mode (ECM) touch the right arrow, then Setup, then Advanced Fax Setup, then down arrow and then Error Correction Mode and set it to Off.
To lower the fax speed, also go to Advanced Fax Setup and set it to Slow.

Brother mfc-7840w won't receive fax


The first thing that I would try multiple people to ask them to fax you.Sometimes the 2 machines don't "sync".This is a toll free fax test number that I always use to check my machines..1-888-473-2963.Just write the words "FAX TEST" in large letters on a blank sheet of paper..fax it to that number...leave the line open...you should get a fax back in about a minute.If you get a fax back...your machine is fine...let me know if this was helpful....thanks.

How to put printer in print mode


Actually, it does not matter what mode your printer is on when printing from your computer. Whenever your printer detects a print job sent to it, the printer will automatically acknowledge the signal and print the file - no matter if it's on Copy, Scan or Fax Mode.

Xerox phaser 3635mfp Work printer, shut down one Friday, next Monday booted it up and a promt for a 'passcode' came up. We have never seen this before and bought the printer new. Is there a way...


i am assuming that someone accidently pressed the access/login button or the machine thinks they did (button stuck,whatever). the passcode is 1111 and assumes you want to enter the tools mode. Becareful if you go there as you cannot kill your printing and do various other things. just enter the code and then push the button mention above and logout.

I keep getting a 'Phone off the hook' message. Phone is not off the hook


Hi,

Disconnect the power cord from back of the printer ( while printer is power on )
While holding the # and 6 key connect the cord back
( This step will erase all the fax logs and settings you have set on the printer )

Also
Press the Setup button and Scroll to FAX SETTINGS ( or ADVANCED FAX SETTINGS )
Check for ECM ( Error correction mode ) - Press OK
Turn it OFF

Finally if the issue is still not resolved,
Disconnect the Phone cord from Printer port and re-connect
Check for any other loose connections ( of phone socket ) within the house. ( disconnect and reconnect )

The Error message should go off

Fax doesnt work


Go to control panel and open the printer. For faxing, make sure you have selected "Series FAX" and not the actual Printer.

This might be the problem

Not receiving faxes


R18 means that your memory is full. Very strange. Go into the user box, file document, system user box, memory rx to delete all of the old faxes. This worked for me.
