Printer Not Printing

Message says:"Opening printer connection failed: Unable to open the printer connection. Please check your printer connections and check for printer errors." The printer already has new ink and no lights are blinking, so why can't I print anything?

Error while printing message


Please try to powerdown your Printer and then your computer. Please restart both.
If you still are having the problem, then:

Try deleting and adding the printer again and see what happens from the printer setup utility if you are not able to print under another user and repair permission doesn't work.

Most likely you need to install the printer drivers that came with the printer on a CD.
Or, you can download and install the very latest drivers from Canon's website!

I keep getting ''Printer connection failed'' message


Hi,

It is seen that if there are any issues with the printer drivers, issues like connection failure may occur. There are chances of drivers being outdated and corrupt. In such situations, you have to update the drivers. If there is any yellow exclamation mark next to printer driver, You need to replace that corrupted driver with the correct one. Before the installation, you also need to check for compatibility. Sometimes, incompatibility would cause issues like printer connection failed, etc.

Get more information and help to fix Printer Connection Failed . Hope this information helps you.

Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device


Hello,

 

I have seen your message stating that "Initialization failed - Unable to acquire TWAIN-compliant device" error is received when trying to connect USB-Parallel type to your Laptop.

 

Well,  Printer  Panasonic UF4100, recommends to use only " Printer/Scanner Interface as Bi-directional Parallel (IEEE1284) " means you need to use Parallel cable to connect Printer to the Computer/Notebook.  You may receive some communication error messages if you are using a  "PORT REPLICATOR CABLE"( USB TO PARALLEL connector).  The error message that you have received is related to the communication error. Futher, if you use same USB- Parallel cable for long time the Printer Hardware functionality might go bad, since Printer memory gets confused and will not read or detect the Cable , since it is not a cable to use  mentioned by Panasonic Manufacturer.

 

Let me tell you, general functionality of Printer like Printing would work even if you use USB-Parallel cable. But it is not a case with Scanner and Fax functionality.

 

Hence, I recommend you to use only Parallel cable to connect your Printer to the Laptops.

 

I hope that this will resolve the issue for you.

 

You can email me at thumuvikram@rediffmail.com if you need further assistance.

 

Bye.
