Dear Mr. / Mrs. , I encounter a big problem with my print server edimax ps 1206U .actually i work in a company that in one of our departments we have a HP color laserjet cp 1215 printer and our OS is...


Most of the print servers (1206u as well) do not support bidirectional printing, which actually allows the computer to printer bidirectionally so that printer info (toner status, print status) is sent to the computer.

Open Devices & Printers
Right Click on the CP1215 and go to printer properties
On the Ports tab, remove the tick next to the "enable bidirectional support"

Dell 1720 printer prints junk first page with only ?Z@ troofpaN.


This is a issue with the printer drive that windows is holding, not the printer. To Un-install your printer drive the correct way, goto add/remove programs, and un-install the printer there, then open up your printer control panel and right click where there is no printer. In the right click menu click server properties, then click the drivers tab, then remove the 1720/1720dn drivers there. A system restart will be necessary in most cases before it will let you remove the drivers(the Microsoft print spooler is to blame here for that). If this still doesn't work for you, then install a hp laserjet 4 driver and see if it does the same thing. if not, then it is something with the driver/spooler, if so, then it is the MCU of the printer, and you might want to look at buying a new printer.

Will not print, printer icon comes on but zero pages to print


numbered_list.gifIn your email program once you send a message it will go from the outbox to the sent items. if there was any problem it would not appear in the sent items box, but would remain in the outbox and would post an error to you.
Now- go to tools,options, receipts tab, and put a check mark in the first box. And send your email as normal. That way when they open the email at their end you get a message that says they opened your email at their end.

Dell 1720 flashinf replace drum- error.


The second link was the helpful information. Also, to cut through all of that --

If you need to reset the counter:

1. Remove drum kit with toner

2. Make sure all print jobs are flushed otherwise whatever has been sent and not printed will come spewing out.

3. Hold down CANCEL Button until all lights flash through.

4. Slide the drum kit and toner properly into the Printer.

done.

Printer prints first page with strange nonsensical characters


I would move the printer to another computer. See if the problem follows. I have seen the issue a few times with issues in normal.dot but also in other office applications.

Problem I'm fighting with on my 1720 is its printing extra pages between pages. basically print a 5 page document and get an 8/9 page final with the extra blank pages. Think its a user error but could be machine related. going to try it on another PC and see what happens.
