Question about Sharp AR-M162 All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

No communication between computer and printer/scanner.

Computer builder has had no success with drivers for 64bit XP (although one is listed.) First Dealer indicates they defer to local dealer. Local dealer has operated system by remote to load driver and try to provide function with no success. Mfgr. indicates not their job. IT has indicated unit will not operate with 64 bit computer. (This has been a tag game for some weeks.) I do not believe that the printer/ scanner can operate at this point. At end of rope now and ready to give up. How do I get a refund?

The scanner and fax drivers don't install from the downloaded driver package

Using the device manger, identify the scanner and fax devices. Right click on them to open, and then under the driver tab have the computer update the driver using windows search. It should locate the proper drivers for you and update them.

If this is not successful, Google search your manufacturer make and model and the words win 8.1 drivers. You can find them in the search results for downloading and installation.

Although I can print, my Canon MP 530 is not recognized by my computer runnig Windoes XP in its scan mode. I removed and re-installed the driver but the problem continues. Any ideas on how to fix this...

The most frequent reasons for this problem is a lack of bi-directional communication between the all-in-one and the computer. (I will assume you installed the drivers/software in the correct order - before attaching the USB cable between the computer and the all-in-one.)

Try a new cable and plugging into a different USB port on the computer. If you are using a print server or USB hub, connect directly to the computer.

I hope these ideas help.

I have had an HP Scanjet 3300c scanner & have just gotten a new HP laptop that has Vista. I can't get the scanner to work. Help!

Windows  VISTA  is not listed for you model prnter. See HP note below:
"If your operating system is not listed, HP does not currently have software or driver downloads available for your product for that operating system"
Drivers are small pieces of software that allow the computer to communicate with the hardware. In this case , your printer. Unless HP decides to write a new VISTA driver for your model,which is unlikely,you wil not be able to use this printer with your new  Computer.  One possible option is to downgrade to WIndows Xp.  Sorry for the bad news.〈=en&cc=us

All in One Scanner/Printer problems

Go to this link and type "cannot communicate with scanner" in the search box. Click Search. Then select the "ERROR: Cannot communicate with scanner" link. You will see several things to try to correct your problem. Usually, this error shows up if there is another USB device connected which prevents the computer from "seeing" the scanner, even though it can print without problem. So do try to disconnect any other USB device (except mouse or keyboard) and reboot the system.
