Question about Canon BubbleJet i9950 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Printer problem This printer was working fine on my boss' Applemac. However, I am trying to use if on my PC and laptop using Windows PC. I set it to A4 or A3 and although in the print preview frame it shows the correct sizing and all other settings are correct, it reduces the print area when printing out so it shrinks to only about one quarter of the size i.e. if I send something to print at A3, it prints out at A5. I have tried all the suggestions that Canon have offered me but nothing works. Be grateful for any advice you can give as it seems to shame to have to buy a new printer. Thank you.

    Thanks, but have tried all the most obvious things - as you suggested, but still the same problem.

From the Printers & Faxes window, check in the i9950 Printing Preferences, Page Setup tab, for the following settings:

Page Size and Printer Paper Size are both set for the same size (both A4 or both A3).
Printing Type is set for Normal-size Printing

The graphic on the left should now show A4 (or A3) and Normal-size Printing in the legend.

Once that is set, verify from the application you're printing from that these settings are not being changed by the application (Preferences button in the print dialog box).

Used to work fine until router was replaced. Now, network can't find printer. Samsung CLP315w printer, Windows 7 and XPpro on 2 laptops.


Hello!

You must not have configure your printer to be shared that is why you can't find it in your network.

To share printer:
- go to Control Panel
- open Printer and Faxes
- select or right click your printer and click sharing
- on the Sharing menu, click share printer (that's it)

but if the problem still occurs, try checking your Windows Firewall settings, to do this:
- go to Control Panel
- open Windows Firewall
- at WIndows Firewall menu, click Exception tab
- in Exception tab, try to check if Printer and File sharing is enable.

Note: to find what are shared on a particular computer:
- at RUN command, type the ip address or computer name
(\\10.0.0.23 or \\samuelcomputer)

Hope this solves your problem.

Can't address envelopes using Microsoft Word 2007 & Windows 7


Excellent question. Wish I had the answer. I have the same problem with the MFC-7440N. I hook up my old HL 1240 and it prints them fine, so I now use two printers - one for envelopes and one for normal printing. I contacted Brothers and was told that it was not the printer, but the Application. If so, then why does my old Brothers printer work? They do not have the answer.

Print from nokia E63 through WIFI


Try connecting your printer directly to the wifi router/switch in a shared network configuration. Then go to your router settings, find the local ip address add this as the 'host'. Your settings should be as follows:


Driver : HP Mobile Printing
Bearer: Socket/HP Jetdirect
Access Piont: My Home Wifi (kaba)
Host : ip address of you printer
user : Blank ( tried my windows username,no use)
port : 9100
Printer Model: Officejet Printers

You will have to reconfigure your drivers on your pc as well. Mine installed as a wireless shared printer even though the printer is not wireless but I have it connected to my wifi switch for sharing and it worked fine.

Good luck

How do I get my Windows 7 laptop to add printer from my Windows xp PC. Just purchased a Dell laptop with Windows 7. My PC has Lexmark 7300 printer, I cannot get the laptop with 7 to add printer with my pc...


Lexmark do not provide a driver for this printer for windows 7.
The latest version is for XP only.

http://support.lexmark.com/index?locale=EN&page=product&userlocale=EN_US&productCode=LEXMARK_X7350#1
You could use the XP as a printer server, i.e. it would interface to the printer, but accept documents from a Windows 7 laptop.
This web page shows how to set up the XP printer as a network printer on the network as windows 7 resource.

Wireless laptop cannot connect to network printer


Found this solution:
  1. On Vista PC go to "Control Panel" - "Printers" - "Add printer".
  2. - Believe or not, click "Add a local printer" (I know you want to add a network printer but that way it doesn't work).
  3. - Click "Create a new port" - "Local Port" - "Next"
  4. - In the next box you have to enter a port name like this:\\PC name\Printer name where "PC name" is the network name of the XP PC or Network Share where you have the printer and "Printer name" is the network name of that printer. Be careful with this names. Check in your XP PC "Control Panel" - "Printers and faxes" - "your printer" - right click - "share" - "share resources name"
  5. - Choose the manufacturer and printer model of the printer you are adding.
  6. - Now the printer will be added and you can print a test page or print something to test it.
Let me know if it's working for your config as it worked for me

Kyocera km 2050


The 2050 uses 2 network connections, one for the printer and one for the scanner.
Before I go into any great detail,
Do you have a home network? Are you using a switch?
Are you printing through the network connection or the USB/parallel port?
Are you trying to twain scan? Do you have the software CD for scanning.
If not, you will need to download the drivers from the Kyocera web site.

Hi there i know that HP are updating a lot of the drivers at the moment you could try the following websites
