CAn't print on one PC

I can't print on one PC with this swithc but can with the other.  Not cables or the color laser I'm using. I get the message about an unkown USB device in the system tray.  Do you know of a way to get the PC to recognize the switch?

First you have to install the drivers for the switch and then you need to install your printer driver using the switch as your port ... I'm assuming you have the driver CD for the switch

Are you sure it is not recognizing the switch?  Just a thought, but maybe the other computer has not loaded the usb drivers for the printer.  Have you connected the printer directly to the computer to see if you can isolate the problem?

Laser printers / Ink Jet printers the difference

Depending upon what you are printing and how you want it to look. Also cost is a factor. We sell new and used printers at our storefront. If you are printing items you do not want to smear if they get wet - Go laser. If you are printing photos on photo paper - Go ink. Some people fail to tell you when selling a color laser jet printer that when you are are printing just black, you are also using each of the colors a little. Toner is the lubricant that keeps the drums from squeaking on the blade as the drum inside the cartridge turns. The buildup of excess toner in the waste container may cause the cartridge to fail though you have only used a little in the cartridge. Laser and Led printing black only is the most efficient way to print. We don't usually recommend color laser printers unless that is all you are going to print are full color documents. Color can be expensive. Inkjet is more expensive to only print black with. While if printing color, it is less expensive than laser. If you need more information please ask!

"Please change PC Drum" message appear on printers LCD

If your print job prints ok, ignore it. Just bear in mind you'll need a new drum soon. The drum is a light sensative roller that ink from the toner cartridge adheres to where the laser hits it. When it is no longer magnatized enough to hold the toner you'll see your print jobs start to lose that toner color. Just pull the drum out, buy a new one and put it in. Just don't expose the drum to light very long.

Messege: Yellow Cartige is low

You can specify that a print job prints in black and white in the properties screen when you print something. You may even be able to save it as a default in the printer driver default printing settings. Unfortunately I've never seen a colour laser be able to ignore it's color cartridges before, you may be forced to replace that empty cartridge.
