Sure, I can help you with that. How do you plan to connect the copier -- by parallel cable, USB cable, or Ethernet cable? Do you have the necessary cable?

You'll need to download the Windows 7 print driver, which you can find here:

Under PCL drivers, download the one labeled "C450 pcl ps fax win7 EN.zip."

    It's connected with an ethernet cable. It was up and running before on my old computer but I had someone else that setup the connection for me. I'll download the driver as you suggested.

  • Gail Williams Jul 07, 2010

    I've downloaded the driver and now I see the driver folder. It looks like there are items inside the folder that I should download, is that correct?

  • gggg Jul 07, 2010

    If you already had the copier set up before, it should have its IP address still. Do you know the copier's IP address? If it doesn't have one, we'll have to set it up with one, but if it does have one, we can skip that step.

  • gggg Jul 07, 2010

    Yes, you can unzip or extract the files in the driver folder, but don't install the driver quite yet.

  • Gail Williams Jul 07, 2010

    I believe it was given an IP address when it was setup for me before but I don't know what it is. Would I be able to locate it in the copier?

  • Gail Williams Jul 07, 2010

    I just found a printer test page which I believe contains the IP information. I think it's IP__192.168.1.70.

  • Gail Williams Jul 07, 2010

    I came across more information on another sheet that states IP address = 169.254.98.121.

  • gggg Jul 07, 2010

    The first one sounds like it's probably right. You can view the IP address at the copier by pressing Utility/Counter, then Administrator Setting, enter your password, then press Network Setting and then TCP/IP Setting, and then ON. The IP address should be displayed on the screen.

    If the Subnet Mask field is blank, fill it in with 255.255.255.0. In the Default Gateway field, type the IP address of your router, which you can find by opening a command prompt on your computer (type "cmd" in the Search or Run bar of the Start menu) and typing "ipconfig /all". The router's IP address will be listed on there as the default gateway -- type that address in the copier's Default Gateway field.

    Once you've entered the information and recorded the IP address, touch OK.

    Now you're ready to install the print driver. Once you've extracted the files from the zipped print driver folder that you downloaded, there should be a file called "setup" or "installer" or something similar. The installer should automatically set up your print driver. At the end of the installation, print a test page to verify that the copier is hooked up correctly.

    I'm stuck where it ask for the administrator password because I don't know what it is. Is there a way to find out or reset it?

  • gggg Jul 07, 2010

    The default password is 12345678. Does that work? (If not, try 92729272.)

    If neither of those passwords works, you can reset the password by pressing the Utility button, then Details, then Stop, 0, 0, Stop, 0, 1. Then press Stop, 0, then Clear to get into the security mode. You should be able to change the password here, either back to the default of 12345678 or to a password you want to use.


  • Gail Williams Jul 07, 2010

    The default password worked and I was able to retreive the IP address, subnet, & default gateway address as well. However, when I attempted to download the driver I'm having another problem. I'm not sure what to do.

  • gggg Jul 07, 2010

    What is the error you get when you try to download the driver? If that one won't work, try the universal PCL driver, right below that one on the same page (the file name is "KM UniversalDriver pcl v11010 win2kx vista xp 7 EN.zip"):

You need a new touch screen panel or I/O cable, they are fairly expensive if you don't have a service contract with your Office Printer supplier. Recently just replaced one a few months ago.
