Question about Samsung ML 1610 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Installation problem I'm trying to connect the printer to my new laptop, which runs Vista Home Basic. The laptop has no trouble detecting the printer, then runs a wizard to install the software with complete success. Then the problems start! The cd restarts and prepares to install the software again (or that's how it seems) but grinds to a halt with the words "Device is not connected or power is turned off. Connect the device and turn on the power, then click [YES] button". It seems as if the laptop can see the printer but not the other way around! I've tried turning things off and on again, uninstallling and reinstalling, but the printer will not print. I'm not currently connected to the internet with the new laptop (that will be tomorrow's hellish nightmare) so I can't run Samsung's diagnostic program, or download new drivers as yet. If that's the solution obviously it will have to wait but please tell me anyway and I'll keep a note! ;-) Thanks very very much, Fiona

    Don't know. Maybe not, since I bought the printer before Vista was released. On the other hand, Vista seemed to have no trouble installing the software using its wizard. I'll try new drivers when I'm connected to the internet. Thanks!

Running Vista Home Basic and tryin to install L7580 but


Most printers come with two cds one for MAC and the other for windows. Make sure you have the right one inserted. Also make sure your printer has drivers for vista. It wouldnt hurt to check to make sure your system is malware and virus free before reinstalling. and if you are infected clean the infection out and remove restore points and make a new one. If you dont remove infected restore points you will just reinfect the machine.

Problem printing with epson stylus office t30


Hi.
Please try to uninstall and re-install the drivers on your laptop now that the ink light is not on steady anymore.
As i see it, the issue is hardware. The printer will not allow you to print anything if any cartridge is not recognized or any cartridge is out of ink. The red indicator light on the printer that was on steady while your installing the drivers on your laptop, indicates that there was a cartridge that was out of ink.

I am trying to install an HP Laserjet P2015D printer in Windows Vista. When I run the setup from the installation CD, I get an error that says, "this software cannot be installed using 'run as...' command....


Your P2015D model has been around for awhile. Windows Vista is relatively new, therefore the installation CD may not have a driver for Vista. Try downloading a Vista driver from HP.com (free of charge). PCL6 is probably your best choice. Try the following link.

Old hp printer won't print anything with new hp desktop computer


Your PC has VISTA loaded (according to the HP web specs)

This printer has no specific driver for VISTA but basic functionality is supported by VISTA without the need to load a seperate driver.

refer HERE

The printer connects via a USB cable to the PC and should be detected automatically by VISTA whe the printer is turned on.

The original CD would have drivers for an earlier vesrion of windows (98 or XP) so you should uninstall any programs that were installed offthe disk.

Post back results or further questions for more assistance
