Re: printer problem

Try reinstalling the driver software.. if you dont have the installation CD, then download the drivers from the manufacturers website. Would have been helpful if you had mentioned the make and model of your printer and What OS you are using..

Re: printer problem

I have an epson color 860 printer, which worked fine. Now purchased a new I-Mac, printer works, but cannot open to see ink levels or icons to clean heads, etc. Replaced ink, but paper is printed blank.  What can be done?

Instal hp dekjet 1280 with hp wireless printing upgrade kit in windos 7

Wireless printers may face an installation problem with Windows 7 operating system. For example, Toshiba laptop is compatible with this operating system yet it may require a driver download for executing a print command on wireless printer. To combat this challenge, users are advised to delete and re-install the printer. If the problem persists assign the wireless printer to a fixed address through a router instead of the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Accessing the wireless printer from a laptop with Windows 7 operating system can be a challenge. Often, it may display the printer to be offline. To resolve the issue, users must cancel printing jobs immediately and delete offline printers from the Printers option in the Control Panel. Visit the Printer properties and access the Ports tab, delete the printer that displays the offline status and appears as Client Side Rendering Provider. Delete the Port button and click apply. Restart the PC. Now re-install the wireless printer by visiting the Control panel, opening Printers and clicking option add a printer. Now select add a local printer, followed by selecting the option "Use an existing port", LPT1: (Printer Port). Install the printer driver offered by Windows 7. In the next window leave the Set as a default printer box unchecked and re-name the printer. Click Next. Upon successful installation, the operating system will display the message "You've successfully added printer name"

Im trying to cancel a print job and all i get is Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000005)access is denied what do i do

open the print que and delete the job there.

controlpanel, printers, open yours, delete the job.

it may be that you are required to have administrative priviledges to do this. If this is your computer, go to the control panel as an administrator user and change your user settings.

Cannot print on shared printer

I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.

X5150 and Vista print issue

I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:

1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.

2.) Then go into User Accounts.

3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off

4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.

5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.

Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!

Deleting-S error HELP

Try to stop and restart the print spooler (right click on My Computer and then select Manage. At the bottom of the Computer Management window, expand Services and Applications. Click on Services, and on the right side of the window look for Print Spooler. Right click on it and select restart). Even if this procedure does not fix your OADP file problem, consider it in the future and avoid restarting the computer every time you want to get rid of spooling printing documents.
