Question about Printers & Copiers

1 Answer

I got the right driver now, but it still won't print

I finally found the right driver and got it installed. The computer is reading the correct model and everything, but I can't print directly from a document or a web page. The copier function is fine. The parallel interface cable is new from the package (I'm assuming) as it was included with the unit and was in a sealed plastic pouch. The connections are secure. What could be the problem? I wonder if that is why it was sold as refurbished.

    Thanks for helping. I recently found out that I have a very deep infection and am in the process of getting rid of it with help. The computer infections (malware, grayware and trojans) were corrupting the print driver which is the latest version. As for printing from the web, I do know how to do that. I've been doing it for a long time.

Try to check with the manufacturers website, they may have new softwares drivers for the printer you have now. but in any case, when you want to print directly from a web page, you must do some tweaking in order to print it. i want you to check on the printer settings about this and check also your HELP contents of your explorer.

I have connect usb cable and did all the instruction from manual and it doesn,t print i need help


1. Connect to a USB port on your computer, NOT on a hub. This might solve the problem.
2. Your computer hasn't found the printer drivers. Manually install them (download from Canon website) If when connected the printer does not show on your "Devices and Printers" panel, then the drivers have not been installed.
3. Try another USB cable in case it is faulty.
4. Make sure you have removed all transit packaging (if any) from inside the printer, and have set the ink cartridges correctly.
5. When you try to print, does a warning sign appear in your system tray? If so, do what it tells you.
6. If all else fails, read the installation instructions again, step by step.
Hope this helps.

My epson stylus tx 121 doesn't print..... it says ur printer s not ready... but everything s ryt at my end.... i need some solutions


First how are you connecting to the printer? Is it a direct USB connectionor are you using a USB hub or print server (sometimes part of a router)? If a USB hub is in use, is it a USB powered hub or a self-powered hub (AC adapter)? (Make sure that the printer has power and is turned on. Also make sure that you have printed and scanned a calibration )

If you are not using a direct connection, try a direct USB connection. Use a different USB cable and try different ports (some ports have lower power throughput than others). Make sure that you have the correct driver for your OS. (The full software is useful for other issues.) See http://www.epson.com.ph/epson_philippines/printers_and_all_in_ones/inkjet/product.page?product_name=Epson_Stylus_TX121 for the drivers.

Try uninstalling the current printer driver and then disconnect your data cable (USB). For Windows, press Start and open the Devices and Hardware control panel (Printers and Faxes in XP) from the right hand column. Right click on the printer and select Uninstall (or left click and choose Uninstall from the Menu bar). Reboot the computer and install the Epson printer driver before reconnecting the USB cable. (Otherwise you can get the OS driver that may not work as well.) Remove your data cable from both the computer and the printer and turn off both devices. Unplug the power cord from the printer and the wall outlet. Wait a few minutes before reconnecting the power. (This will reset most printers if there is an error in the printer itself.)

If you are using a print server and the direct connection worked, check the installation information for using the print server. Not all printers are compatible with certain print server drivers and you can have a conflict.

If a direct connection to any of your computer's USB ports does not work, check if other USB devices work. If not, try updating or uninstalling your USB controller (in the Device Manager for Windows - Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Device Manager, scroll down to the Univeral Serial Bus controllers). Then reboot your machine and see if the correct driver installs. Alternatively, check your computer manufacturer and see if there is an update for your USB driver.)

If the problems persist, you may have a bad USB port on the printer. Please add a comment with the type of connection between the computer and the printer.

I hope this helps.

Printer problem


Look at the printer, it has a brand and model. Go the the manufactures website, and under support look for downloads. There should be a way to look up your downloads by model number. Once found you are looking for drivers. Download and install the drivers that match your Operating system. I suspect this is a print driver issue. With out a brand and model number my instructions can not be more complete.

Canon PIXMA MP190 'not responding'


There are possible causes of this not responding status message you get. you will try out these option i have listed here and see which one resolves the problem. after each one, try to print from a file and from the web.
1. Configure driver to correct printer port
On the 'Ports' tab of 'Printer Properties' window, select the correct port for the printer driver.
From the Windows desktop, open the printer's properties window.
Click the Ports tab.
Below 'Print to the following port(s)' section, select the port to which your printer is connected.
Click 'Apply' to accept the changes.

Click General tab and then click 'Print Test Page' to confirm the changes corrected the issue.
2. Checking USB Connections
You should disconnect and reconnect the USB cable at both ends to ensure there is a secure connection on the device side as well as the computer side. It may also be necessary to try a different USB port on the computer. Additionally, you may need to disconnect other USB devices, temporarily, in order to determine if a conflict exists.
Disconnect one end of the cable and then reseat it ensuring the cable is firmly seated into the USB port. If the USB cable is plugged into a hub instead of directly into the computer, try connecting the USB cable directly into the computer.
Repeat step one to reseat the cable on the other end.
3. If there is still no communication, then it may be necessary to try a different USB cable or a different port on the computer.
when you are through, restart the system.
4. Uninstall and Reinstall the Driver
If the MP Navigator or the MP drivers are no longer required, or if they are not installed correctly, uninstall them.
Caution: Uninstalling means deleting software, such as MP drivers, from the computer. Once the software has been deleted the unit cannot be used through the computer until the software has been reinstalled.
Note: Login as a user with Administrator privileges to uninstall . Turn off any programs running in the background, such as antivirus programs and firewalls before begining.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Error offline


Hello,

Initially, I would suggest using the HP Printing Diagnostic Utility found here. Once you click that, you will see a Download Only button. If you need detailed installation instructions you will see a link below the Download Now that says View Directions which can be used to get step by step instructions for installation of the programs.

If that doesnt correct the issue, I would suggest removing and reinstalling the printer by following the directions below:

I would suggest that you disconnect the usb cable from the printer. Then, if the printer was previously installed, uninstall all programs related to the printer through Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

After restarting the computer with the printer still disconnected you can follow the directions below to download the latest drivers.

To download the drivers you can go here. When the page opens you will need to choose your operating system. Then, from the Drivers section I would choose the full feature driver.

Once you click that, you will see a Install Now button that will allow you to immediately install the software and/or a Download Only button that will allow you to download the file for later installation.

Either option will have a link below them that says View Directions which can be used to get step by step instructions for installation of the drivers.

Hope this helps. Please rember to rate this information.

Thanks

Hi Teresa,

Double check your model number, I think the numbers you are quoting refer to a range of printers.

Check out Lexmarks website to find the correct driver.

Hope this helps,
