Switch the printer off.
Press the online button, while your turning the printer on again!
keep the online button pressed, til the error light glows.

now stop pressing the online button. push it again one time. now you can print.

You just switched to the line mode. there are two different drivers for page mode and line mode!

Restart you computer. Turn your printer off, wait 20 seconds and turn it back on again. Load up software you use to talk to the printer.

What interface are you using to connect to the printer?

The Epson works fairly well with XP. It is to be connected to
a parallel port, usually LPT1
using an IEEE certified parallel printer cable. The computer BIOS
setting is best set for standard parallel port, SPP, bi-directional port
or similar. If possible, do not set it to ECP or EPP or ECP & EPP.

The only native driver for the printer is on the Windows CP CD. Install
using the Add Printer wizard.

The Epson LQ-860 drivers, and a few others, can be used. Using these
drivers, you will discover that the printer actually has some resident
fonts (in printer ROM) that are not accessible from the Stylus
driver. However, with this driver, graphics printing quality is
compromised.

Windows 9x drivers _cannot be used_.

Let us know.

Tip

Fatal error : HPZPRL01.exe while installing HP printer Software


1. Perform System restore:
If the printer software was previously installed on the computer anytime before or even if the original issue was anything else before this error, then try restoring the computer to the date on which the software was working. You can then do add a device from the installation screen. The printer would start working fine as the software would already be available after doing a system restore.
2. Uninstall the complete Software.
Perform L1, L2, and L3 uninstall. Then reinstall the s/w.
3. Insert the CD & start the install, select custom install.
Under options select only "HP Drivers (required)" in order to install only the print/scan/fax drivers. If drivers will be successfully installed, you can add one by one the HP software starting again the installation and selecting Install More Software button & install the software in this order:
• HP Solution Center
• HP Device Functions
• OCR Software
Do not install HP Participation Program or HP Customer Experience or HP Supply.
4. Grant full permission to the system
Right click on My Computer, go to properties\security\Group or user names\ select the customer’s user name & click on permissions. Click to select the Full Control check box under Allow, and then click Advanced. Check both the boxes under advanced window. Click OK & close all the windows & restart the PC. Install the software by following customer install method.
5. Make sure that you have write access rights enabled for the following registry keys:
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2\
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Print Processors\
• HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Prrint\Printers.

Printing labels from SAP ECC 6.0 using smarforms, label prints however the printer commands themselves are showing on the label, not just the information the print commands are to control. Is there...


Hi there

Does this printer connected with your computer? If yes, there is a problem on printer driver. You need to add new printer with same name and if this successfully installed, you can delete the old printer icon.

When there is errors message or wrong command of printing, the usual problem is corrupted driver.

Another way to correct this is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver if the first solution does not work.

If still not working, try this download and install the print diagnostics software. It will helps you to find and fix errors in the windows registry. Here is the link http://www.out-of-warranty.com/print-diagnostic-utility-for-hp-lexmark-canon-dell-xerox-and-everything-else/. Click on the blue text PRINT DIAGNOSTIC UTILITY and it will download automatically. Unzip it to install to your computer.

I hope these solutions solve your problem. Regards.

C3100 Printing Fails from XP


Disable firewall to test if it is actually blocking. Windows Firewall should not normally be configured to block printing.

Make a new printer instance, but use a standard TCP/IP port

If that fails, install the driver using the canon setup.exe installer for you unit.

C++ Runtime Error for Dell Photo AIO 962 printer dlbxmon.exe


I had the same problem and was able to fix it by following the instructions in this link:

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7590_102-0.html?forumID=67&threadID=300180

Apparently, the regular uninstall procedure does not completely uninstall the software drivers. Then, if new drivers or software are installed, a conflict is created between the old drivers and the new drivers. You have to first run the DellXPCleanUpUtility to completely clean out the old software drivers. Then, you can install the new drivers successfully.

try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.
