Question about Teac P11/KIT Thermal Printer
Hey.... i just got this thing... the first time i used it things went fine, however now, when i go to print it tells me to reset printer... when i go to do that it tells me that it's not on, or plugged into the computer (it is!) or to make sure the driver is installed correctly... i have re-installed it a few times.... i have windows xp... help!!!!! thanks a bunch......... joe romer
I'm surely not a profound computer expert, but I was having the same problems that were posted here, unter Vista. The P11 worked fine right after the installation and did not work any more after re-starting the computer. The design application still worked, but once you wanted to print the system told you that you would have to reset the printer which was not possible as it was not recognized by the computer etc. like quite a few of you reported.
This is how I could fix the problem, rather coincidently:
Be sure that you have the printer application stored to your computer. Don't worry for a moment that it doesn't work fine and that you get all the mentioned reports.
Then open your system software:
Computer ---> Vista (C:) ---> Applications ---> CD/DVD Printer ---> Driver ---> DPInst.exe
After having installed the DPInst.exe everything worked fine, and it still worked fine after re-starting the computer.
As said in the beginning, I'm clearly not a computer "guru" (but I'm having clients that expect well-labelled CDs), and I'm writing this post from Germany with a German language Windows system; so I'm not sure wether "applications" is the right term as over here they use the term "Programme". But I'm sure that you'll find it out ;-)) All the other terms in the above line are in English independent of the prefered language of your computer system.
As the problems that I had unter Vista were quite the same as reported here with XP it *might* sucessful to try the same procedure with "XP (C:)" instead of "Vista (C:)"
Nevertheless it's a shame that Teac doesn't offer an installation suite that installed the required drives.
Hope that I could help at least a few of you who are facing the same problems.

Heres my solution...dont buy the teac printer or any anything from teac ever again.
i bought the teach thermal printer because it was advertised as easy to use. but really it is the most difficult piece of hardware ive dealt with in years
i installed it exactly like it said to do it, and it tells me i cant print my cds because i dont have the driver(SHOULDNT THE DRIVER COME WITH THE CD???) and now ive spent countless hours searching for a teac p11/kit driver and it is impossbile. even this site wont help me.

This printer appears to be a rebadged Primera Signature Z1, which is the one I have. I went through 2 of them before I discovered that there is a problem with the USB interface inside the printer. If it is disconnected and reconnected, or if the computer is restarted too many times, the USB interface in the printer stops responding. If you unplug it from the computer and leave it overnight, it will work normally again. I believe there is a capacitive circuit inside that is not discharging when it should. I have also been able to make mine start working again by unplugging the USB cable from the computer (leave it plugged in to the printer) and shorting the USB connector with a paper clip. I wouldn't reccommend that to anyone though, it is safer just to unplug it and leave it overnight.
