Issues Printing with DPR-1260

Hello,

I am having issues printing from VISTA (x64) using my DPR-1260 and an HP-PSC1350. I can print from Notepad / Windows Image Viewer however, printing from Internet Explorer/Firefox/Office 2007, it will not work. Outlook says "Printer not ready." Office Word doesn't give an error but the document disappears from the spool immediately and does not print. Firefox says "Printing failed when completing the page". I tried everything from XP and it does work absolutely fine (so I assume it's not a printer or print server issue).

I've tried disabling the bidirectional option, changing from RAW to LPR (but the spool then seems to hang), creating the port manually. No luck.

Any suggestions would sure be appreciated

    I have a similar problem with Vista (64-bit). The router/modem was changed from Alcatel ADSL to Belkin ADSL2/2+ and now I can't print from any program on the Vista computer, but I have no problem printing to DPR-1260 from Windows XP computer on the same network.

    Vista OS, Epson CX8400 printer, DPR-1260 wireless print server! Printer works fine hooked up to vista locally. Printer works fine wireless from Xp computer. Vista comp. sees printer on wireless, but cannot communicate with it?

  • kaijan Jan 12, 2008

    Using firmware 1.21 already, unfortunately. :) HP says that the drivers for Vista X64 are already included in the OS and there isn't a download available.

This worked for me and I was having the same issues as everyone.

Before I put this solution in (manually adding the printer step-by-step), I could print a test page just fine, but not anything from Office.

Make sure to follow each step in order. I printed off the test page and held it up to the old one and the only thing I saw different was a field named "Shared". It was blank but who knows. I'm just happy the darn thing is working!

I could print a test page and from notepad, but not from any other application ie: word, Acrobat, excel etc. I installed, uninstaled and tried to change to lpr which just hung the print que. I could print when the printer was connected via USB. So I compared the printer properties and the Dlink advance tab did not have a check in Enable advance printing. I selected it and applied the settings now I can print from all documents. It does take a longer to queue and print from Word, Acrobat etc, but it does work now.

My printer was hanging after printing half a page for ~10 min before finally spitting the page out unfinished. I was able to fix it by going into "printer properties" then "ports" and clicking "configure port" on the one that was selected. I then switched to "LPR" with byte counting and put in the name of the queue from the dpr-1260 web screen. Haleluja!

I had the same problem with Vista. I couldn't web into the router as http://dlinkps-xxxxxx. However I was able to web into the router with my-local-network-IP-router though. So Vista printing now worked for me after I changed the Printer Name or IP Address under Printer TCP-IP port setting to my-local-network-IP-router (192.168.x.x instead of dlinkps-xxxxxx)

Also make sure you download and update router to ver 1.21 for Vista support.

Good luck to ya.

I spent 3 full days getting my Officejet5600 Multi Function to work and print. It was installing and connecting to the computer through the DPR-1260 Print Server but would only print a couple of lines of a document then error. I finally found my solution.

Install the printer as local under LPR and then I went to Control Panel / Programs and Features / Turn Windows Features On / Off (on the left). Where the Print check box is expand it and enable LPR. This will take serveral minutes to install. I was then able to print what I wanted.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP,I WAS GOING CRAZYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY...

YOU THE MAN ! ! !

Try switching the port to be LPR with LPR byte counting. Find the LPR queue name in the home page of the print server.

  • TheWombo Oct 07, 2010

    Setting to LPR (with the correct Queue name from the status page of the DPR-1260) plus setting the check in "Enable Advanced Printing Features" worked for me.

I have upgraded the firmware, and I got the latest HP1018 drivers. If I connect to USB, print a test page, then change port back to the print server and then it prints until I power down the laptops (Vista), then on restart I have to go through the whole process again. I have not tried cycling the power on the print server.

Go to the printer properties, you can go from Start-->Printers and Faxes. Select the printer (it should say something like, HP LaserJet P1005 on DPR1260 ..... make a double click on there. Then select Printer -----> Properties. Then go to Ports, and DE-SELECT the box that says: Enable bydirectional compatibility. IT SHOULD BE NOT SELECTED. Then Select Apply, and then Acept. After doing this, the printer should start working.

DPR-1260 with Epson CX6600 & Dymo Duo


The DPR-1260 is pretty easy to configure and works well with my HP Laser 1012, HP Photosmart 8250, and HP OfficeJet 5610. The Operating System on the computer is what matters... as long as it's running Windows XP, Vista, or a server edition like Win2003, you should be fine. I can't speak to the Mac environment, as I don't have any experience there. As for the Dymo Duo, I can't tell you how well it'll work in this environment, but based on my experience with it and many other print servers that I've tried, I can't think of a better configuration to try. Personally, I would recommend the DPR-1260 to anyone... just make sure you follow the installation instructions in the users manual carefully, and you can't go wrong. I love mine, hopefully you'll enjoy yours as well.
