If the system is unable to detect the printer, it will put the printer in offline mode. In this condition you won't get any print outs..
1. chk usb cable
2. un plug the usb cable, un install the drivers, plug the usb cable & chk new hard ware found?.. if not there is usb port issue, chk system usb port/s are working or not.. if yes
3. Replace printer formatter assmbly...
This printer network unable printer, why cant use through network? instead of replacing the formatter assembly...

Printer has detected, its mean the printer is ok.
and the computer I think its ok too,
so the problem is the connection, usually this problem in the number USB port on setting properties with the number USB port on lap top that you have plug in.

My printer wont print out a letter i need. it says to check conections and make shure it is turned on but i tried it and it still wont work


You may have a problem with your communication connection.

1) Try plugging and unplugging your USB cord..
2) Go to "Control Panel/Printers".
3) Delete "Canon iP1800 series" printer.
4) Power ON printer, let computer detect printer.

If it will not detect and install the printer. There might be a problem with your USB cable.

Hope this helps.

I can't reinstall my Sharp AM-900

Yes that is possible. Did you plugged the usb cable during driver installation ? During driver installation the usb cable must not be plugged. after the installation step asks you plug it in, then you plugged it. If not, the system wont recognized your printer. Be sure to uninstalled the previous installation before you re-install the driver

Hello I am unable to get my HP all in one printer working? it will copy a page for me, but I cannot print anything/

Did you plug in the printer before you installed the drivers from your installation CD? If not, you need to uninstall the hp printer drivers and unplug the usb cord from the computer.
Restart your computer, run the installation cd, and then after the HP installation says it's complete then plug the usb cable into your computer. NOTE: Some HP driver installations ask you during the install to plug in your printer so the software can find it. If thats what happens then only plug in your printers usb cable when the installation software tells you to. Once it detects your printer the installation will continue. Make sure you keep hitting next or continue until the software tells you everything is installed. Now your all in one printer should work.

All in one printer installed on pc, driver installed but pc saying device not detected

try putting it in another USB plug, give it a blow inside to make sure there's no dust, if this doesn't work, check another USB device to make sure it's not the USB that has a fault. it could be a fault in the cable, so try holding it tightly into the USB plug, good luck

DP-1810P USB

sir/mam, there is no usb port on all 1810p and also the usb to parallel cable is not working with these machines.
what you can do as an option is to find a parallel print server, or you may connet the copier to the router with a builtin parallel print server
