You might want to try shifting the USB cable that leads to the printer because the connection with USB can sometimes be the problem.

Good Luck!

    I don't recommend that. I would see if just waiting will fix the problem.

Goto the Epson website and get the Vista driver. Uninstall the printer from the control panel - printers then goto control panel - system - add/remove and remove all printer programs. Now reboot and when the system detects the printer use the downloaded driver for it.

    I use the HP F300 series. But the newer epxons should work with vista. Good luck.

    Go to the properties of the printer. There is a checkbox that tells the printer to print now. it may be waiting for a default time and when U reboot it closes out it dumps the print command. If this is not the case, look at the printer setup under the control panel - printers.

You have not given complete information of your Printer and OS. The reason your computer cannot detect your printer is that your Operating System (like Windows XP or Windows Vista) does not contain your printer driver(software) so you have to download the driver separately. For this you have to Google the following information.
(1)Your printer Vendor (like HP, Epson etc)
(2)Your printer's model number
(3)Your Operating system


Good Luck!

I can't get my hp photosmart printer to print photos from my hard drive onto the photo paper. It will print the photos from the paper tray.


You have to shift the paper tray. Click on start, click on printer/faxes right click click on your printer, click on printer preferences, select photo printing borderless. This shifts your paper tray to photo paper.

I'm guessing here completely, but I've got 2 things that you could try:

1) On the shortcut/executable, right-click; select properties; and set the compatibility mode for an older operating system

2) Are you sending the information out via a printer/virtual printer of some kind?  If so, you could try skipping the print driver and ticking the 'Print directly to printer' box in the options
Control panel --> Printers --> Your printer --> Right-click & properties (or settings, can't remember)

Good luck!

Hi my instalation disc will not work so i got in


Hello my friend, can you reinstall new software recommended for your printer. Try to check if the software you install is the exact match of your printer then also try to check if your hardware component connection is properly connected also the ink level of your printer.

thanks

Select photos for printing


Try selecting the photos you want, right click on one of the photos in the selected group HOLD and drag the files to you second location, a menu will appear when you release the right button, select COPY. Selecting MOVE will erase the originals as is your problem now. If that is faster please let me know, if is is not we can come up with another solution.

Canon i560 print driver for Mac OS X 10.5 (leopead)


Ruth...unfortunately you must wait on Canon to get a print driver that works.

Background: In the process of creating and publishing new operating systems Apple contacts all of the peripheral manufacturers that they have to support and gives them the interface criteria for their new operating system. In this list is printers. When the operating system is published it does not include all printers because many times the printer manufacturers don't have time to react.

One of the criteria is how good is the information that Apple gave them for the interface. Printer drivers are time-related and often are tricky to write. This sounds like the version that you have (4.83) is not a good version or may be interacting with other software combinations that only you have that weren't tested. I wouldn't be suprised if they came out with 4.84 this week.

Your best bet is to contact Canon directly with your problem and keep on them until they have it solved. Mention that your only option at this point is to buy someone else's (not Canon) printer. Every new version of a print driver is some solution to a problem that they have had in the past or a new compatibility with new operating system. Remember that Canon has limited resources and money (incentive) to fix your problem and may not be as responsive as you would like. Also, Apple is still the minority player in the operating system market (less incentive).

My solution: continue to contact Canon until you get an a fix.
- cost...your time and effort. Time to fix...???
My second solution: buy another printer (not a Canon). Make sure it is in the list that Apple (specifically Mac OS X 10.5) says they have drivers that they have tested.
- cost...$150US maybe. Time to fix...immediate.

Online print ordering wizard


This may because of your firewall blocking it for some unknown reason.

Try adjusting your firewall settings, or trying adjust the settings in the Printer Ordering Wizard.

Also go into the Internet Options and having a browse around there to see if that's any settings for the Online Printer Ordering Wizard.

To get to the Internet Explorer settings, open your web browser, now click on "Tools" probably on one of the taskbars on the top row, after you've done that click on "Internet Options". Once your on it just have a look around on that to see if you can see anything about it.

Also try resetting internet options just see if that's the problem. To do that, when your on Internet Options click on "Advanced", now click on "Restore Advanced Settings".

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful.
