I can't install my Brother MFC6490CW printer onto


All these three methods involve some specific code in the printer drivers both in Print server and clients.

Not all printers will have drivers that will support all 3 ways of using the printer. It appears that not all printer drivers, written for Windows Vista. If you can't get your network printer, please try the following steps to bypass the LPT redirection. 1. Install the Vista printer driver on your Windows Vista computer.
2. During installation, you'll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
3. After installation completes, open the Printers wizard from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right click on the entry for the new printer, and choose Properties.
5. Go to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the port name, enter the network path and share name of your printer ("\\TheirComputer\TheirPrinter1").
8. Click OK, and verify that the new port is selected.
9. Click OK to close the printer properties.

Windows says printer offline, but it is not offline. network settings confirmed. windows firewall turned off. scanner works perfectly over network, but printer is "offline"


The printer offline error mostly troubles windows 7/8/10 users, The printers loses connectivity even when it is connected and operating. The status message displays offline on the computer, and the printer does not print. An Offline status indicates that the computer has failed to communicate with the printer. In some network conditions, the printer might get offline unexpectedly.

Before going to the solution for this you must know when and why printer offline error takes place:
The error may appear when Windows 8 diagnoses that the printer is unavailable, but unfortunately, most times it fails to tell whether the printer is really offline or if it has connectivity problems or printing errors. Reasons why your printer appears to be offline, include problems with hardware, such as disconnected cables or malfunctioning equipment, and problems with software, such as corrupted or incompatible driver files.
These might occur when:
1. The connection between the computer and the printer is slow/unresponsive.
2. The printer has encountered an internal error
3. There are multiple unfinished print jobs in the queue.
There are some simple steps you can follow before going to any complicated way:
Your printer offline can be a problem with the driver software. This is a small piece of code that Windows and the printers use to "talk" to each other. If the driver software is outdated, corrupted or incompatible with the version of Windows that you have installed, you may need to update it.
Restart the printer and the computer or unplug its USB cable.
Do check that the printer's power cable is plugged into an electrical outlet. If the printer is connected to a power strip, make sure the strip itself is connected to the electricity supply and is turned on.
In case you are using a network printer both wired or wireless, You restart the router as it may cause due to network failure.
Different manufacturers come with their own diagnostics software which can inform the user about the problems coming up (Ex : HP's Print and Scan Doctor), Use it as it will be really useful.
PRINTER OFFLINE ERROR Solution 1 :
Type in Services in your windows searches and hit the enter key. Click on Services option from the set of search results as shown below.
A new window for Services opens up. Scroll down and find the entry named Print Spooler.
Now right-click on Print Spooler entry and then on Properties option.
Set Startup type as Automatic from the drop-down menu.
As next, hit the Start button and wait till windows start the Print Spooler. Once done, hit Apply button.
Now if you look at the status of the Print Spooler, you can see that it is Started.
Solution 2 :
If the above method doesn't work for you, you can always try our second method. For that, type in Devices to the windows search and choose Devices and Printers from the search results.
Now find the printer that is offline and right click on it. Click on the option See what's printing from the context menu that appears.
A new window opens. Now click on the Printer tab and uncheck the option that says Use Printer Offline.

On linux centos it doesn work


The CT4170 SoundBlaster "Vibra" cards are old 16-bit ISA PnP cards, and were not detected at install by Linux kernels 2.16.15-27. You need to get the "isapnptools" package from the Fedora or CentOS sites, and do the following:
2. Install isapnptools using dpkg -i path-to-downloaded file .
3. Create and edit file /etc/isapnp.conf and put the following contents in it:
(READPORT 0x0273)
(ISOLATE PRESERVE)
(IDENTIFY *)
(VERBOSITY 2)
(CONFLICT (IO FATAL)(IRQ FATAL)(DMA FATAL)(MEM FATAL)) # or WARNING (CONFIGURE CTL00f4/-1 (LD 0
(INT 0 (IRQ 5 (MODE +E)))
(DMA 0 (CHANNEL 0))
(DMA 1 (CHANNEL 1))
(IO 0 (SIZE 16) (BASE 0x0240))
(IO 1 (SIZE 2) (BASE 0x0300))
(IO 2 (SIZE 4) (BASE 0x0388))
(NAME "CTL00f4/-1[0]{Audio }")
(ACT Y)
))
(WAITFORKEY)
4. Run "isapnp /etc/isapnp.conf". If it reports errors, you must change configuration above (it is suited to my setup). Try "pnpdump -c" and put its output in /etc/isapnp.conf file. If it does not help, you must find the correct configuration manually, for example change port to 0x220. For full list of possible values run pnpdump. Note that if you change the configuration, you must change options for modprobe below.
5. Create and edit file /etc/modprobe.d/sbvibra and put the following options in it:
alias snd-card-0 snd_sb16
options snd_sb16 port=0x240 irq=5 dma8=0 dma16=1 isapnp=0
6. Run "update-modules"
7. Run "modprobe snd-card-0". If it works OK (check if "ls -l /dev/dsp" shows that file is present), perform the steps below to make setup permanent:
8. Append following line to /etc/modules:
snd-card-0
8. Go to system configuration (in GUI) and choose "Services". Enable "isapnp" service and tick option to start it at boot.
Hope this helps :)

Got virus, got rid of virus, cant print, not recognizing printer, uninstalled and reinstalled but wont finish saying "The specified print monitor is unknown"


Need to know more about the printer make and model to diagnose this completely. But the first step is to take the third party applications and software issues out of the equation.

For PCL printers setup and print to the printer using the "generic-text only" driver in Windows. For any PS laser printer, you can usually use the laserjet4 PS driver. If attached USB, unhook and plug the printer into a different port first.

If you still can't print, the print monitor in Windows was probably corrupted and you will have to run a repair using your original system disk. This happens often with virus which replace system files in order to hide from AV scanners.

If can print, then you (1) probably have an injet and (2) probably have a failed uninstall of the print applications. Third party print applications still running as a service can cause this same issue.
