    Printer still wont work, Thanks for trying i downloaded new driver but when i go to print something it just says the printer is off line. Think that i will have to buy new printer!

    Have got a new usb cable and all it prints out is a test page and then it wont print anything else that is sent to the printer, just keeps saying offline. i have tried everything that you have said.

    It doesnt make sense the printer was working until installed windows vista



    please help!

    Pefore changing the printer, check the printer cable that links it to the PC. If it's an USB, try the USB port with an other device (webcam or other) because an offline printer is a printer that is powered up, but does not communicate with the PC.



    Maybe you are lucky and it-s not the printer itself.

Kyocera FS-1020D starts print 1/2 way down page


Internal tests like Report Prints are printed correctly? Make sure the Paper Size Format is setted correctly both on PC and Printer. Try not to use a Generic or Universal Printer Driver. Try installing printer with an Windows Vista driver if the Win7 and 8 drivers won't solve the problem.

HP 990cx1 unable to print from Vista


The problem is definitely due to compatibility...To solve this and you want to use vista as well you will need to use dual-booting(two operating systems on the same machine)A wise choice would be a combination of XP and VIsta...This will solve the problem at least until your printer drivers for VIsta are out..

How can I display the number of pages my printer has printed? I need to work out the costing for my business. Can I reset the counter? Cheers Jennifer


You can print a printer status report,print self test page from printer as standalone.there are details mentioned there about the page printed by your printer since you set it up.Page count started from the first time printer prints anything when you set it up and it collates all of it till present.

You also need to consider the ype of printer you have.

You can also print test page from PC to printer

this is example for windows xp.
windows xp is printers and faxes
windows vista is hardware and sound then printers
windows 7 is devices and printers

Won't print on Vista operating system


I've seen this before with these printers. They will print a test page ok but nothing from the computer. Reload the driver. In fact go to the HP website and download the newest driver and install it. This should solve your problem. You should find your drivers here http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/siteHome?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us Let me know if you need anything else.

Printer will not install on vista operated computer


pardon me for asking if you have downloaded the driver for Vista? pls ensure that you have done this otherwise it will not really print becuse of incompatible drivers.
or pls check if there is already a presence of a printer in your computer, then right click the proprties and hit test page.
