How can I display the number of pages my printer has printed? I need to work out the costing for my business. Can I reset the counter? Cheers Jennifer


You can print a printer status report,print self test page from printer as standalone.there are details mentioned there about the page printed by your printer since you set it up.Page count started from the first time printer prints anything when you set it up and it collates all of it till present.

You also need to consider the ype of printer you have.

You can also print test page from PC to printer

this is example for windows xp.
windows xp is printers and faxes
windows vista is hardware and sound then printers
windows 7 is devices and printers

My DCP-1200 Brother printer is printing blank pages when connected to my Vista 64 bit laptop. It prints with XP. Is there a fix for this?


Probably,

You'll have to go to the Brother website, follow links for support and downloads, you need to download and install a VISTA 64 bit compatible driver for your printer.

Sharp 1642CS shared printer


You can go into your print driver and change the Driver. I dont think there is a difference between Home or Prem drivers. There is how ever a difference between 32 bit and 64 bit Vista?
When you set up the printer and share it from a PC, The printer attached to that PC can Control the Configurartion of the printer. PC's can either pull the driver from the sharing PC or you can select your own.

I would first check that the correct drivers are installed, (64bit or 32bit)
I would check the computer that is trying to print. replace the driver with the correct one.
You can open the print server -open the printers and fax folder, right click in a white area in that folder, a menu should pop up. Select Print Server from there you will see tabs, try to replace the driver from there.
Or Open the Printer Properties and there you will see Driver-Update in there.

This is a link to an explanation
Thou it was made for XP but the basic Infomation is the same.
-->Print a test page from The Printer Properties), if it works the Computer is fine, if you try to print from a program and it prints with errors. it is in the program..

Lexmark 1290 on Vista Printing Blank Pages


Fond this on the Lexmark Website. Hope it helps.

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· 1) Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· 2) Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· 3) Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· 4) While leaving the USB unconnected, Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Normally to fix a printer that is printing gibberish, uninstalling and reinstalling the print drivers will fix this issue. Another thing that can contribute to gibberish print is using a USB cable that is too long.

With this particular problem (prints Zen), one solve is to uninstall any Dell toner management software. This is particularly true if you are running Vista and hooked up by USB. To uninstall the toner management software (Vista OS), go to control panel>programs>programs and feature>uninstall a program. From this list choose Dell software, choose a customized uninstall, and then choose anything that has to do with Dell toner management.
