Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

We moved an okidata 520 printer to another computer and now it won't print. We connected the printer it detected the driver and auto installed it then we tried to print and nothing happens. There are no error messages the file is not sitting in the print que. The computer appears to be sending the file it just doesn't go the printer?

~ Check the unit physically. Try to copy stand alone. ~ Check if the drivers are properly installed ~ Check device manager/system profiler if the printer is detected ~ If the unit is on wireless connection, try network settings and ping the printer ~ If on usb connection, check printer icon ~ You can try to replace the usb cable or try a different computer

The green power light keeps blinking and it won't print, it says it is not getting a connection


Thank you for using fixya.com.

The computer is not detecting your printer. Here's what you need to do:

1. Check all the connections or Reset the connection between your computer and your printer.
2. Press and hold the power button of your printer for 5 seconds to do a power cycle. The printer will turn off.
3. Turn it back on.
4. Print something.

If no go,

1. Uninstall and reinstall the driver of your printer. You can access the driver in Control Panel>Add and Remove Programs. After un installing the driver, put the disc of your printer into your computer's DVD player. Follow the onscreen instructions.

2. Print Something.

If no go, let me know by posting in this thread.

Thank you,

Power is connected and printer is on; printer cables to pc is connected however this message keeps coming up to check them....and the print wont print....what can I do?


It could be a driver problem where the computer system won't able to detect the hardware completely. Try installing the driver of your printer and try using other ports if it is a USB one.

My HP CP2025 printer will not print color text and color shading in Word. It prints color photos, pdfs, and paintbrush files, but will not print color in Word or Word Perfect.


I had this problem on Windows 7 64x.

The solution that finally worked for me:
1. Go to your Devices & Printers window. (from the Start menu)
2. Right-click on your HP CP2025 printer and select Printer Properties.
3. Select the Device Settings tab.
4. Scroll to the bottom where you see Device Type. It probably says "Auto Detect."
5. Click on the words "Auto Detect" to activate a drop-down menu. Select "Color". Click the Apply button.

To test if this fixes your color printing, go to the General tab and click the Print Test Page button at the bottom. The page should print the Windows logo in color at the top of the page (the rest of the page is b&w).

Note: I did not install any additional drivers from HP for this printer. Windows automatically detected it and installed HP's Universal Print Driver PCL 6.

Kudos to Ken from the HP forums for this knowledge: http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Printers-LaserJet/CP2025-Won-t-Print-in-Color/td-p/1151762

Hope this helps and GOOD LUCK!

  • Description: ecblank.gif ecblank.gif ecblank.gif

    ecblank.gif The most current driver for this product is already included in the Windows XP Operating System. Currently there are no updated drivers available. Follow the instructions below to correctly install your printer.

    NOTES:
    Select "Oki Data ML 320 Turbo/D (IBM)" from the XP CD.

    The ML390/1 Turbo Printers are not on the current XP CD. Please use the IBM Proprinter or Epson LQ driver for these models.

    The driver should automatically install once the printer is connected to the computer and powered on. If it does not automatically install, then do the following:

    1. Click Start, then Control Panel.
    2. Click Printers and Other Hardware or Printers and Faxes.
    3. Verify that the printer icon is not already installed
    4. Click Start, Turn Off Computer, then Turn Off to shut down the computer.
    5. Connect the data cable either USB or parallel. If it is not then continue to step 5.
    6. Turn on the printer.
    7. Turn on the computer.
    8. The printer will now be automatically detected

Hard drive failure required rebuild of XP Home on Dell computer. XP Home updated to SP3. Canon Multiplass F80 printer will not now work. I downloaded latest XP drivers from Canon web site, but installation...


I found that some Windows Plug and Play services were note running and were set to start 'manually'. I started those services which seemed related to Plug and Play, and the installation went without further errors.

Ip4200 - printing issues!


Hi, Perhaps you can try: remove the USB connection of the printer; uninstall and remove all drivers of the Canon IP4200; reboot your PC; plug in your usb to the PC from the printer; power on your printer; let windows auto detect "New Hardware found"; let windows auto install drivers; test print. If after plugging in your usb and powering your printer Windows did not auto detect "New Hardware found", it's possible that your printer's usb cable is defective. If Windows auto detected the Canon IP4200 and auto installed all the necessary drivers but failed in the test print, repeat above steps but instead of auto install, use the original CD driver and not the new drivers (Let me choose which drivers I want". RESET - User manual is available from the Canon site. There are 2 versions, 1 is a Quick Start Guide in pdf and the other is a User's Manual (On-Screen). Both does not say anything about reset, however you may want to google "fix your own printer" and variations of resetting all sorts of printers are available. Some works, others are ... well you can always give it a try. Or in the On-Screen Manual,you can also try the Troubleshooting/Printing Does Not Start. Another thing that you can try is installing the printer in another PC using the old CD drivers and see if it works. If it does, then it is a driver issue with the new PC. If it does not, you're back to reset . Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and kind regards.
