Re: Sharp Copy Machine

You don't say if you are using a server/client network or a peer-to-peer. Go to START >printers and Faxes >Add a printer >Next and select A Network printer select Connect to the printer and then enter the path to the printer eg \\server\printer name

Hi, I just purchased a Xerox Work Centre 4118 for my office. I have Windows 7 Professional and am unable to Print via wireless. I receive a message that the Printer is offline. Would you be able to...

The above links to the drivers page, but unfortunately, I do not see specific Windows 7 drivers for this printer. This means that older XP or the latest drivers from the year 2008 are used in emulation mode, maybe, for Windows 7.

Since this is not a 'new' printer, I gather, it will not guaranteed to work with Windows 7. However, I would try the link above for various drivers which may or may not work on this printer.

The fact that the Printer is shown to be offline, is a bad sign.
I read that the printer in question has the following connectivity:


But, that it doesn't support WiFi.

USB, Parallel, optional 10/100 BaseT Ethernet.

Connecting sharp AR 5316 to a wireless network for office use

With great difficulty.... Seriously though, you MUST get the driver for each operating system, Install each Driver on each machine, and then simply connect each computer to the printer as a "Networked" printer. I may be efficacious, to have all drivers on every PC, all in same Directory so that each is available to each other...Right ALL machines, must be in same WORKGROUP, ALL have a password, The printer MUST have a name, Install the drivers as Administrator.

Xc 1040 xerox Red light is flashing and the copier will not

On a XC 1040 machine either there is a jam on the fuser, the fuser switch fell out of place, or the sensor swich arm fell off the registration sensor.
Since we cannot see the machine we might understand what is taking place.
If the machine is turned off and back on and there is no red light, then the machine must be able to attempt to make a copy. If a copy does not come out, then there is problely some worn feed rolls.
If when the machine is turned on and there is a red light then th There can be some bad paper feed cluthes as well.There might be a paper stuck at either fuser assemly or paper feed roller areas.
Provide more description about the visuals on the machine.
Good luck.

I recently installed my printer onto my computer by the cd given but then it got lost and i dont know where it is, but just a week ago i got a laptop and im trying to install my printer onto my laptop...

If you are using a router or modem on the network then the IP Address of the printer can be found out through the router/modem attached device list. Also, try taking a manual print out from the printer and check if it shows information of the IP address on it.

Router sends my printer invalid ip address

Wow what a mess, this is hard to explain easily?

All network printers should be set to a Static IP address. (Fixed address). Somewhere in your Printers network settings you will find this, it should not be set to DHCP...

Your router is probably set to DHCP, which reassigns all address.

Your computer will send out a communication telling everyone on the network the PCs new address...

Your network printer will not do this.

In your PC in the Print Driver Properties you will see Ports which should have the IP address of your printer, which is a TCP/IP port.
Which will stay the same as when you installed the printer.

When your printer reboots and a new is address assigned if set to DHCP, the pc will still look for the old address, while the printer has a new address.

That is why the printer should have a static IP address assigned from within the machine
The gateway, subnet mask should reflect the same as your network. (The gateway does not have to be in there to work by the way, if you’re using it on the same router)

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once.

If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of electricity.

Hooking a patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the settings.

USB and Network use different protocols. TCP/IP uses a completely different addressing system.

I don’t think your problem was with your network, as much as it is with the Static address of the printer.

If it is printing for you now the easiest thing to do here to prevent future hassle...
print the network settings

go into your printers IP Networking settings and set the IP address and Subnet as what the printed page is ( I usually turn off DHCP, IPV4, IPV6, NetBIOS etc, and only have tcp/ip on, if your machine offers this?)

Good Luck

I just purchased an imagerunner 2200 from liquidation sale the copies come out black

Hello Platanon,
I feel confident i can help you. And I cannot praise you enuff for the sample you have offerred. Nice touch, and extremely helpful. The drum on your machine is toast. Good news is that it is relatively inexpensive, and comes with instuctions to install it. The fact that you were sharp enough to provide the sample page of the poor copy quality artifact makes me feel VERY confident you will have no problem ordering a new drum and successfully installing it. Just to bolster your confidence, check this out. Notice how there is a pattern to the worst yuck on the page you submitted. It correspondes with the diameter of the drum (@ every 3.7 inches). The linear streaks toward the center of the page are another sign of drum wear. Canon rates the drum @ 55k +/-. You are officially fixed :-) . But if you need more help let me know .Take care...........SPINAL.......
