Network printer not printing properly

I have a network printer that is not printing all the text I send to it. Another lap top on the same network has no problem. It used to print properly, just stopped printing properly after the holidays, Merry Christmas I guess!

Re: Network printer not printing properly

Hello Begg, I don't think your solution is right. I agree, Silly

Puddy isn't clear either "printer stopped printing properly".

If we asume the printer didn't print anymore after a while,
it is a cable-conectivity / or firewall problem.

XP Service Pack 2 has a new feature
DEPdata execution prevention (DEP). This precents code execution in memory regions already marked as storage. This is a powerful tool against buffer overrun exploits.

If a program is failing and you want to disable DEP to see if that is the cause. Here are the steps. (Just disable DEP for the program in question... don't disable it for your whole system.)

    1. Click Start
    2. Select Control Panel
    3. Select System
    4. Click the Advanced tab
    5. In the Performance region select Settings
    6. Click the Data Execute tab in the dialog box that opens
    7. Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except for those I select
    8. Click Add.
    9. The open dialog box will open. Browse and select your application. (printer software in this case)
    10. Click Open
    11. Click Apply
    12. Click Ok
    13. Reboot

Re: Network printer not printing properly

Hi Silly,
Try going to the Add/Remove programs and remove the drivers for your printer, then reboot, reinstall then, connect to the network printer, and try again,

Good luck.

Re: Network printer not printing properly

The solution provided by 'petrumusic' is correct. I had a similar problem with my Konica-Minolta 2400W which has been going on for some time now and getting worse. In many instances there was no error reported, but I finally saw a PRINT OVERRUN error show up. This problem started in my old PC running W2K and it seemed to be more paper jam oriented, although there never was any paper jams. Last Aug. 2008 a bought a new PC with 4Gig memory and 1533 FSB. I started experiencing the same problems forcing multiple repeat prints to get everything, and I was doing only single pages of my multipage doc as they were double sided. Doing a single page probably minimized the print overrun problem which was very evident when I tried to print 6 pages of a document.
So I followed the DEP procedure and voila, exceoting the printer driver program solved the problem.

Printer connected but not printing

If your printer has a network port you should be using the network adapter.
Otherwise you want to make sure you connect the printer with a USB cable to the appropriate port on the D-Link.
Once the USB cable is connected you should be able to add the printer from your computer as a shared printer.
You will not normally see any activity lights on your router for the USB connection because it does not send or receive information the same way the LAN cables will.
I do recommend a LAN cable though as it works much better with routers. If your printer does not have one I would look into getting a network printer.

INSTALLING A NETWORK PRINTER These instructions generally apply to all network...

These instructions generally apply to all network printers with built-in network cards (print servers) such as HP Laserjet printers, IBM Infoprint laser printers etc.
This example is for a network HP Laserjet printer.
To install a HP printer (with built-in Jetdirect print server) as a network printer you need to do the following -
1. Open the printer’s menu and enable the Network Card – these print servers use a static IP address therefore, configure the IP address of the network card so it matches the IP range of your network. Eg. If your IP's are then set the network card to a high number say 100. (This is to prevent a conflict with the router issuing the same IP address to a computer on your network).

Then set the Subnet Mask IP address to
If you have a wireless router then check the IP address range that the router issues to the computers on your network and configure the static IP address in the printer’s network configuration accordingly.
2. Install the HP printer driver on your computer/s using the LPT printer port.
3. Connect the printer with a LAN cable to the network hub/router.
4. Click on Printers and Faxes - right click on the HP printer and click on Properties.
5. Click on Ports and click on Add Port.
6. In available ports - click on Standard TCP/IP Port and then Configure port.
7. Tick the IP box and type in the IP address of the HP's printer IP address.
8. Click OK and tick Enable bi-directional support and then OK

Install the HP printer driver on every computer on your network and configure the printer’s TCP/IP port as previously detailed.

Do a test print page to check the printer.
You can now print from any computer on your network.

Thanks for using FixYa. You’ll need to share the printers. If the printers are different than install all the printer drivers. For detailed description to configure the other two ports to print on the network please follow the step-by-step procedure on the link---

I can't get my print server LPV2-USB-TX1 to work with my lap top. The print server is conected to my wireless router. Do I need to intall driver on my laptop? My operting system is windows vita

Are you able to print from any other computer in the network ?
If you are able to print from any other computer that means your print server is set up properly.
On your laptop you will need to add port for the printer.
make sure that the printer drivers are installed.

Router sends my printer invalid ip address

Wow what a mess, this is hard to explain easily?

All network printers should be set to a Static IP address. (Fixed address). Somewhere in your Printers network settings you will find this, it should not be set to DHCP...

Your router is probably set to DHCP, which reassigns all address.

Your computer will send out a communication telling everyone on the network the PCs new address...

Your network printer will not do this.

In your PC in the Print Driver Properties you will see Ports which should have the IP address of your printer, which is a TCP/IP port.
Which will stay the same as when you installed the printer.

When your printer reboots and a new is address assigned if set to DHCP, the pc will still look for the old address, while the printer has a new address.

That is why the printer should have a static IP address assigned from within the machine
The gateway, subnet mask should reflect the same as your network. (The gateway does not have to be in there to work by the way, if you’re using it on the same router)

If you reinstalled the printer after your system rebooted, you probably have the printer installed more than once.

If you do not set the printer to a static IP address this probably will happen again when it is restarted or there is a loss of electricity.

Hooking a patch cable directly from your PC to Your printer will not work; it will work with a crossover cable and a few minor changes to the settings.

USB and Network use different protocols. TCP/IP uses a completely different addressing system.

I don’t think your problem was with your network, as much as it is with the Static address of the printer.

If it is printing for you now the easiest thing to do here to prevent future hassle...
print the network settings

go into your printers IP Networking settings and set the IP address and Subnet as what the printed page is ( I usually turn off DHCP, IPV4, IPV6, NetBIOS etc, and only have tcp/ip on, if your machine offers this?)

Good Luck

Print jobs no longer arrive on printer

try this: make sure you do not have any pending printjobs (cancel all documents if there's one) then delete all printer icons. Reboot the computer then launch the printer server software to locate it. add that network printer & make it your default.

probability is that some of your applications are sending printjobs to the wrong queue (like the one for the USB connection).

Does your network have a dedicated computer server and the printer is attached to this server or is the printer attached to a dedicated print server device?
Does a computer on your network shares its printer with other computers on your network?
There is insufficient information on how you configured your printer setup for me to give you a proper answer to your problem.

Emulex NetQue Pro2 Print Server how do I connect to it

Your DHCP server will keep track of which MAC Addresses have been given what IP addresses. From there, find the IP address of your Print Server. Ping the IP address to confirm IP connectivity between your computer and the print server. You should then be able to upgrade the firmware.
