SOURCE: Re:Canon MP620 printer. Since instaling Windows

Hello there,,

I am using win7 as well and in my experience this is a driver incompatibillity with the operating system which you are using. Have a look and see if there is any win 7 drivers for the device you are using on the internet, assuming you are using vista drivers. Hope this can help you.

Best regards
Andrea

SOURCE: Cannot communicate with printer. Told to Turn

Restart your computer.
Press <DEL> to enter BIOS SETUP.
Find the setup-screen that changes the mode of the printer (PP/"Parallel Port" or EPP/"Extended Parallel Port", or ECP/"Enhanced Port"). Select EPP or ECP.
Then, 'SAVE' the updated BIOS settings,
and exit from BIOS SETUP.
Restart your computer.
The box will _not_ be "grey".

Why should I turn on enable bi directional printer properties dialog box


If you have a bi directional printer then you can increase the print speed by enabling it in the properties. Most older printers only print in one direction and the return to a home position to print again. Bi directional printers will print in both directions so there is not wasted movement of the print head.

Bidirectional Printing - A means of printing by a computer printer which prints one line from left to right, then the following line from right to left. Such printing is faster than printing in one direction only, as there is no need to wait for the carriage or other imaging mechanism to return to the left margin before starting a line.
how to enable bi-directional printing.here's how:
  1. -click on start
  2. -click on printers and faxes (control panel->printers and faxes)
  3. -right-click on Dell Photo All in One Printer 964 All-In-One icon
  4. - click on properties
  5. -click on ports tab
  6. -down at the bottom there's a small box before bi-directional support
  7. -tick the box to enable it then click apply,ok
  8. -try printing again

note: in vista , printers and faxes is printers.in win 7 ,it's devices and printers.
and properties in win 7 is printer properties

Ok, I presume you are using a parallel printer, what you have to do, is go into the BIOS, SETUP, and find the Printer Port, LPT1, and set the port to bi-directional, or SPP, now save, and reboot. Now reinstall again, and it should work. ( It may just work anyway, after reboot, that may be worth a try first)
