Sharp AR-M160 , printing problem with OS: Windows 2000

I have the Sharp AR-M160 from the last 4 years & i was using windows 98SE as the OS & did not have any problems...Now i have changed my OS to Windows 2000 & i am facing a problem...the problem is that whenever i give a print command for any page with multiple copies i.e 2,3 or any number more than 1 than only 1 copy prints & for the balance copies i get an error message " Printer cannot send data to the computer......" , because of this i have to give the print command equal to the number of print copies i want...this problem occurs only when i use the Parallel port ...with the USB port this problem is not there but as my printer & the computer are placed very far i cannot use the USB port...does anyone have a solution for this ??? please help...

Sharp AR-M160 A3 Printing


You need to contact Sharp ! !

They are the ones who developed the new Windows 7 drivers and now they are defective! Call them back (Sharp), and tell them they need to give you a new driver that will fix the A3 issue of your printer.

Driver of the sharp printer AR 5316E for vista 64 bits


Currently Sharp does not have any specific drivers for this model that are compatible with vista. But if you go to www.sharpusa.com under customer support, product downloads. You might try using the AR-M160 drivers. They are practically the same machine. For the model choose model not listed and manually type in AR-M160.

Linux


Sharp doesn't support Linux. Only Windows and Apple. You will have to try a generic Linux print driver to get it to operate.

Can't disable / remove "Print Status Window" on Sharp Ar-M160/M200


Remove the printer software and use a generic Windows driver. That is the only way, since the status window is part of the driver software. If the printer is postscript enabled you can almost always use the HP laserjet 4 driver which is basically generic postscript.
