Printer is not found by Computer

There have been times when the computer can not find the printer, we try to re-install using the supplied disk and it can not find the printer. It has taken up to two weeks to be able to get the printer re -installed using the disk. Any ideas what cases this problem?

If the printer is connected through the USB than there could be an issue with the cable for the port that you have connected it to.So try different cable and ports.Also incase there is a software issue and reinstalling is not helping than you have to do a complete operating system reinstallation.

MY SCANER IS NOT WORKING


Try running Delete Print Jobs to remove any stuck print jobs in the queue.

Disconnect the printer.

Download and run the patch(printer cleanup utility) until it prompts you to restart your computer.

Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed. Manual Printer Driver Removal

Download the proper drivers. If using Windows 7 32-bit use the Vista 32-bit and if using Windows 7 64-bit use the Vista 64-bit drivers. Install the drivers in the Vista Compatibility mode You'll get a message, the printer is not connected. Connect the printer at this time(powered on)

Virus programs and firewalls will block communications.

Links to the patch(drivers can be found at...

As for scanning, if you have the disk that came with the printer, then insert the Printer disk and stop it from running. Go to My Computer and double click on it. Look for the drive with the Dell disk in it. Right click on it, left click explore. Look for the OCR Folder. In the OCR Folder, there is an Abbyy Folder. right click on setup.exe, that's in the Abbyy Folder and left click run as administrator. This will install the OCR program.

Installer Canon PIXMA iP1000 Printer


If you attached the printer FIRST, before you installed the CD disk that comes with the printer, you will have conflicting drivers.
When you install device without installing it's drivers, Windows 'sees' the device, and matches up one of the thousands of generic drivers it has.
You need THE drivers for YOUR printer.
Windows will have a conflicting issue with which drivers to use. The ones it matched up, or the ones you installed.

A Driver, is software that allows an operating system to 'communicate' with a device. (Windows XP is an example of an Operating System)

Should you have connected your printer first, THEN installed the CD disk, this is how to correct the problem,

1.Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs. REMOVE anything you see listed with Canon's name in it, pertaining to your printer. There may be more than one program.
You should be asked if you wish to restart your computer. NO!
Close all windows until you are back to the desktop screen, then shut your computer down normally. (Start>Turn Off Computer>Shut Down)

2.Computer off, and unplugged from the surge protector. (Electricity)

3.Press the Power On button in, and hold it in. Hold it in for a count of at least Five seconds. (Count, 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

4.Let go of the Power On button. Do this procedure Two more times.
(Number 3 and Number 4)
What you are doing is clearing any CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory default settings.

5.Now plug the computer back into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute. Turn the computer on.

6.After Windows has fully loaded all the way, and any programs you have in the Start Up menu have loaded, install the CD disk that came with the printer. Follow the installation instructions.

7.Once the installation is done, you can restart your computer if asked. If you are not asked, go ahead, and restart your computer.

8.After Windows has fully loaded, and any Start Up programs have loaded, plug the USB cable from the printer into your computer.

9.Plug the printer into the surge protector. WAIT 1 minute, then turn the printer on.

You should see, "Found New Hardware", and possibly, "Found Canon Pixma ip1000"

I need to hook my printer back to my computer i lost the disk


Go to Brothers web site and look for downloads or drivers. Download the drivers for your model and install them. Also if it has any software/manuals that the model uses you should find it there as well. I you already have software installed I would uninstall and reinstall the software you download.

1700 printer


How did you install the printer?
I have found that if you just let your computer recognise new hardware, it really has a hard time with the USB printing to the 1700's.

Originally there was a disk that came with the 1700 printer. You do want to use that.
During the install, you run the software, and then turn on the printer. (You can have the printer on during the install, but ignore the Windows Wizards that come up).
If you don't have the original 1700 install disk, you can download it from Dell.

The problem is with USB port configuration. These little 1700's are just a pain sometimes if not installed the way they were originally designed.

Hi,
try uninstalling any software relating to the printer.
shutdown the computer. Remove any printer to computer cables. Re-boot ( startup ) the computer.
let it set itself up. then shutdown.
turn off the power to computer, put your printer cable back in, as if you were installing it for the first time.
the computer should have found new hardware ( your printer ) And ask for a driver. ensure your HP disk is in the drive, and ask to search Drive D:- Or E:- wherever your CD is located.
If it,s already got the latest drivers installed, i would,nt worry unless your printers not functioning correctly.
