Try going to the manufacturer's website or call their number for some instructions. I think printer installation is fairly simple, should be simply plug in and use. After you plug everything in, open up a word document, hit ctrl+p to open up print menu. Try to find your printer you just installed and try to print.

GO INTO START, CLICK ON COMPUTER AND UPDATE YOUR COMPUTER. YOU MAY HAVE TO TURN YOU ANTI-VIRUS, DEFENDER ETC, BACK ON WHICH YOU CAN ALSO DO IN YOUR COMPUTER.

WHEN INSTALLING NEW SOFTWARE, ANTIVIRUS IS USUALLY DISABLED, JUST ENABLE IT...TYPE IN ENABLE ANTI-VIRUS, IT WILL COME UP AND CHOOSE YOUR OPTIONS, YOU'LL HAVE TO DO THIS FOR YOUR FIRE WALL AND DEFENDER IF YOU HAVE THOSE ENABLE ALL OF THEM.

WHEN DONE RESTART, MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS HOOKED UP TO COMPUTER, SO IT CAN BE DETECTED AND INSTALLED WHEN STARTING THE COMPUTER.

IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T DETECT YOUR PRINTER, THAN GO INTO YOUR COMPUTER, CLICK ON ADD PRINTER, EITHER AUTOMATIALLY DETECT, OR ENTER THE INFO OF TYPE OF PRINTER AND WHETHER YOU HAVE THE DISK, INSERT DISK, IF YOU DON'T HAVE DISK, THEN CLICK ALL PRINTER INFO, WHAT BRAND & MODEL CLICK NEXT.

YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN, AFTER INSTALLING YOUR PRINTER, IF THAT IS NECCESSARY! SHOULD BE OK AFTER YOU ENABLE YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION.

HOPE THIS HELP!

I got error on printer LBP2900 when connect to my laptop (windows 7) It show communication error but usb connection and software installation no problem. Any idea about it?


Most likely it is a corrupt software installation.
You can try the easy things first: 1) Unplug the USB cable from the computer 2) Reboot 3) Plug the USB cable back into the computer, see if the communication error happens again
If that doesn't work, time to reinstall the software: 1) Go to Control Panel > Add Remove Programs OR Programs (depending on which version of Windows you have) 2) Remove every piece of software related to your printer 3) Unplug the USB cable from your computer 4) Reboot 5) Disable any Anti-Virus or Firewall software that you have running 6) Re-run the printer installation software

I have been given a canon mp530 all in one but i do not have the cd software. can i still hook it up to my computer without the cd?


Without the CD, you can't but you can download the contents of the CD i.e. your printer's Drivers and Software. You can download the drivers from HERE but you need to select the Operating System (O.S), open the link and click "Select OS" and select the operating system installed on your computer. Once the O.S is selected, you'll see few tabs, expand "Drivers" and "Software" by clicking them and again click the name of the driver or the down arrow icon to download the respective drivers/software.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Hello,

I am unable to find a manual for the game, usually the help files are codes within the software itself or come inside the CD case.

If you need to close a program and do not see a exit icon or quit option, you can try pressing Alt + F4 on your computer to shut down the program. All programs have a close feature and I have never seen one without a close feature. It may just be somewhere you have not looked :) Try all the menu options.

I hope this helps and if so thumbs up my solution!

Regards,

I'm running xp pro sp3. I have a brother dcp 7020. I can't install the scanner and ocr software. the install gets as far as searching for the usb connection aqnd hangs up. What can I do? Just use the 7020...


Make sure it's plugged into a good USB port and that Windows responds to that.  If you're using the most recent driver install program, things should go fine...otherwise, perhaps something is keeping the printer authentication handshake from going on (antivirus, firewall) and you can chill that out for the time it takes for the install to succeed.

I need a product key. Lexmark p707


No product key is required to connect a device to your computer. SOME software requires a product key, but not printer software.
