Ok, also try another USB cable... the printer is not being recognized by the OS as a printer, it might be that the file usbprint.sys might be corrupted. Try to install the printer to another computer with the same OS and see if the OS recognizes it as a printer. Also use the same driver CD that you've used. This is just for isolation. If the printer is recognized by the computer and the drivers are installed correctly, then the problem might be the file mentioned above.

Why alps md-1000 printer not responding after driver installed


Can you provide more details about the problem? Will the printer print a self test page? What OS, computer, and cable connection are you using? The ALPS printers were designed to work with Windows 95 using a serial port internal to the motherboard. There is a driver that supports a USB port and Windows XP available. XP will automatically install the MS driver using the plug and play feature. The MS driver is useless and it shouldn't be used, but XP will default to it. Don't delete this driver, but rename. There are no native drivers for Windows 7 or higher.

I can,t getmy printer to print from the computer. I have try everything.


What OS are you using? Check that you have the correct (latest) driver for your printer available here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=1138346& Select your OS and click Next. Uninstall the old driver and disconnect the data cable (for directly connected printers) before installing the driver. For those Windows OS versions that include the driver with the OS, if the driver isn't automatically, check Windows Update for new updates (check for Optional Updates).

Are you getting any error messages (flashing lights on the unit)? Paper jams or low ink could be the problem.

Since the printer is a USB printer, try a new USB cable or a different USB port on the computer. Try a direct connection if you use a print server or USB hub. Check that the USB ports are working with a known good device. (For Windows, check if the USB ports are active. They can be turned off for security or power savings. The first is under the Device Manager (also check the driver status for the USB itself); the second is part of the Advanced Settings from the Screen Saver.)

Are the print jobs going to the queue and staying there? What is the printer status? For Windows, see the Devices and Printers Control Panel (older versions of Windows gave Printers and Faxes, IIRC). Try clearing the print jobs. For Windows, you can force this to empty by stopping and restarting the print spooler. Use the Command Prompt (for Vista and Win7 right click and choose Run as Administrator) Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
Type "net stop spooler" at the first prompt without the quotes followed by enter. Type Y if you get a warning about stopping the Fax Service. On the next line, type "net start spooler" again without the quotes and then hit enter. When you get a third prompt, restart the computer. Then check your printer queue. (You could do only the first step and then restart; however, you will need to go for a coffee break after the restart.)

Once the queue is empty, try a new print job. Next try resetting the printer. Unplug the printer (from both the computer and the outlet) and remove the data cable (from both the computer and the printer). Wait a short while and then reconnect everything. Try printing again.

Try printing a different type of file from another program. For example, PDFs sometimes won't print from Adobe Reader. This could result from a damaged PDF, a problem with Adobe Reader or something else. You can try using the Advanced Printer Properties (click the box when you select which printer you want to print to) and try printing the document as an image. Also try printing the same document from another computer/printer (transfer it to external media if you use another computer to minimize additional file transfer damage).

I hope this helps.

Cindy Wells
(BTW if you use a Mac, do not delete jobs from the Print Queue. Instead press Cancel at the printer. Otherwise, your computer may lose the connection to the printer.)

When i try to print doesn't print and message shows in upper bule line'usb port not responding" what should I do?'


If you are using Windows Operating System, I suggest you do the following procedures.

  1. While your computer is turned OFF, unplug the printer's USB cable from the computer and transfer it to another USB port in your computer that is unused.
  2. Then turn your computer ON and Windows will try to configure it and install the drivers needed for your printer to run on the new USB port.
  3. If steps 1 and 2 above don't work to fix your problem, the last thing I can recommend is "uninstall" your printer from the Control Panel and restart your computer. After restarting, install your printer and try if it now works.

Since i got windows xp my cannon i70 nolonger is printing


Try to re-plug the printer to another USB port on your computer, it should automtically detect the printer as a new hardware. If it didn't, try these steps:
  1. Run Add Printer Wizard of Windows (from Control Panel> Printers and Faxes).
  2. Choose Local Printer (it's okay if it didn't find Plug n' Play printer).
  3. Select USB Virtual printer port (assuming that your printer is connected through USB to your computer).
  4. When it ask to choose the manufacturer and model, just select the closest match to your printer.
If the model couldn't be found (or not even a close match to Canon i70), you will need to download driver from Canon website.

The same scan error too.


Hello,

You have to make sure that the scanner/printer driver is installed on the Vista system. Otherwise, it will not be detected. You can obtain the driver from Canon's download page and choose the one for Windows Vista.

The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
TIPS:
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.
