Hi,

I am assuming that:
1. There is installed a shared printer in one of the other computers in your network; or
2. The shared printer is connected to a Wireless USB Printer Server;
3. The laptop can connect to the network and is authorized to access/use shared resources.

Procedure would be identical to installing a printer. Follow on screen instructions. Click on Start, Printers & Faxes, Add a Printer, Next, tick "A network printer....", tick "Browse for a printer", Next, Select printer choice, Next, OK, make default, print test page. It might take a bit of time while drivers are copied from the printer server to your laptop. In some printer that is directly connected to the network, you need to pop in the CD that came with that printer and install. Thereafter, you need to change the port setting in the Printer Properties to TCP/IP and point to the assigned IP address of the printer.

Hope this be of some help/idea. pls post gain how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

My printer is new, when I am printing /photocopying and even printing default test page, the print output is very light in the way where one cannot see. Please help, i am stuck on my first day


Go into the printer properties and set the default on the print type you want. It sounds as if you are printing in "Draft" mode which saves ink.

Can't print wireless anymore - Lexmark X4550


Is the printer a wireless, network, or connected to another computer wired.

Also, be sure that your "workgroup" is still named the same on all computers.

Can't print via wireless connection once VPN connected


You have changed your IP address when you connect to the VPN so your network is no longer valid for that VPN session. What you can do is share the printer and then add it as a shared printer while 'in session'.

Need help with my printer


it is most likely you need to clean the printer head,
then align the printer head,you should find the option to do this in the printer software.

you may need to do this a few times ,if this fails to correct the problem you need to replace the ink cartridge.

Print Photographs on Minolta Magicolor 6100


Hi Ralph,
do you have any options within the printer or software program itself, to give you options to lighten-darken output ?
Or perhaps changing the resolution settings May Help You.
Also try to print a test page in printer preferences, to eliminate the printer itself.

I can not get my Brother Intellifax machine to repsond to my print command from my computer. Help me before I get violent.


Need a little more information regarding which IntelliFax you have to really be able to help, but from what I am finding, you probably have one that interfaces via a Network Connection, in which case you'd have to ensure that the IP address of the Fax, and the one your computer is sending print data to correlate to each other.

But please, before getting violent, let us know more of what you have to better assist you.
