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!

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

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.

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.

If you attach this printer to a desktop computer with a network card and you have a wireless router.
Then you set up the printer as a shared printer and connect the desktop to the wireless router with a LAN cable. To send a print from your laptop then the printer and desktop computer need to be switched on.
If you let me know what equipment you have got then I can advise you the most cost effective way for you to set up a network printer.

A client of mine has a Bizhub 362 printer attached to their network, Now it originaly worked fine for 6 months, Until recently it slowly stoped wanting to print jobs over the network. What i've noticed is...

I have a Idea for you to try.... I know you may of tried this already? Do you have a lap top? If so, try to print to the copier with a cross over cable.... Basicly emulate a network with your lap top. If it prints fine, even after the five minutes. It has to be some thing with there network. The problem is, that the "IT" person will not admit to any wrong doing, because they made a error to fix another problem with the network. I am not a network person, but if the coiper is working "OK" and you can print to it "OK". It can only be with the network only... Good Luck

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.

Photosmart 3310 is on network but not recognized wirelessly

Sounds like another Vista Bug, i would check the HP site for this issue and if its under warranty, contact HP. If you have alot of Blue tooth devices hooked up, it may be that its trying to use another device in its place or the signals are getting crossed, im not positive.

Its like when you have to many network drives all hooked up and you plug in a USB device, Windows pops up those anoying bubles saying its detected, but in My computer it doesnt show.

So bassically you have to right click my computer, manage, disk management listed uder storage, right click on the device or drive and change the drive letter to something like " W" or " Z" or anything not in use.

It may be a siomilar case with your bluetooth, youo may have to much stuff connected. Try redoing everything like you have so many other times before, and then limiting how many bluetooth devices you have connected at the same time. see if theres a difference.

Hope this helps.
