Question about Samsung ML 2010 Laser Printer

1 Answer

Unable to print

I've succesfully reinstalled this printer and drivers and the LPT1 port is functioning properly (per Device Manager) however it will not print.

I tried printing a "Test Page" and that does not work, however, if I physically depress the Cancel button, the test page will print.

Also, I tried printing from the Command Prompt per the Troubleshooting Guide, also, with no luck~~~

Any ideas?

Thanks

CW

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

If it fails, you have verified that the problem is within the printer. If the print head is not moving at all, the transport motor may have failed.</li> <li>If the printer that you are using is not set as the default printer in Windows or the printer driver is not installed, the printer may print garbled characters. You may also receive errors when you attempt to print from applications.</li> <li>If the printer passes the self-test, try a test print using the Print Screen capability within DOS. If the Print Screen fails, you know the problem is in the relationship between the printer and the computer. Inspect the cable and the cable connections. Replacing the cable with a known good cable is worth trying since cables are so frequently the source of printer problems.

Some add-in devices may interfere with proper communications with the printer. Try printing again. If the printer prints successfully, the cable may not have been connected properly, or the add-in device may have been interrupting communication with the printer.</li> <li>If the combined length of the cables connecting the add-in device and the printer exceeds 10 feet, communication can also be disrupted. In addition, the software that controls some add-in devices may take control of the printer port interfering with any other device attempting to use the same port. In some cases, the software for the add-in device should be disabled or uninstalled. Remove any add-in devices and uninstall the software for those devices, then try printing again.</li> <li>The message "out of paper" is sometimes erroneously reported when there is plenty of paper, and can indicate a physical problem with the printer.</li> <li>If the printer port is not properly identified in CMOS, the printer may not function properly and you may receive errors when trying to print. Check your User's Guide on how to enter CMOS. Once in the Setup utility, locate the LPT1 settings. The address setting for the LPT1 port should be 3BCh or 378h depending on what kind of video card you have. The IRQ setting for the port should be 7 and LPT1 should be enabled in order for the printer to print correctly.</li></ul>

Hp 3005X PAUSES BETWEEN PRINTING EACH PAGE. Data light is flashing and LED panel displays "processing"


Thank you for contacting FixYa for your printer inquiry.
We have had this problem before. If you install the driver from the hp site, the dot4 port is not installed properly. We had to clean all the dot4 entries out of the registry and install the printer from the cd.
Remove Dot 4 Port Steps:
  1. Click "Start" and then right-click "Computer." Click "Properties" on the pop-up menu.
  2. Click the "Device Manager" link on the left side of the new window.
  3. Double-click the "Ports" sub-heading in "Device Manger." Highlight a USB port that includes "DOT 4" as part of the device description. Right-click on the port devices name, and then click "Uninstall" on the pop-up menu.
  4. Uninstall other existing "DOT4" ports using the same method.
  5. Restart the computer and log in to Windows.
  6. Reinstall the driver software that came with your printer's CD.
The printer now functions properly in Windows.
USB problems are usually fixed by reinstalling the driver, just reboot the machine.
Better still hook the machine up to a LAN this is a network printer.

Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this printer solution.

HELP PLS THE cartridge of my printer EPSON STYLUS T10 IS NOT RUNNING THE RED LIGHT IS BLINKING...


First try printing with the printer directly connected to the computer without any switchbox, Zip drive, scanner or any other parallel port device connected to the same port. If this is the problem then install a second parallel card for LPT2.

Make sure to use a printer cable no longer than 6 feet.



Next make sure your hard disk has a minimum of 30 - 50MB contiguous space available to spool the data to be printed. Run Scandisk to make sure there are no cross linked files and then run Defrag to see if your hard disk needs to be defragmented.

Your computer's parallel port must be set up properly for your printer.

* Check how LPT1 is set in your computer's CMOS/BIOS setup. It should be set to either Standard (SPP), Normal, or Compatible (contact your computer manufacturer/vendor if necessary).

* Check how LPT1 is set in Windows 95. If set to ECP Printer Port, you should change it to Standard Printer Port. An ECP or EPP port seems to cause some communication problems and out of paper messages.

Use the following steps to change the port type:

1. Click on Start
2. Go to Settings
3. Choose Control Panel
4. Double click on System
5. Click on the Device Manager tab
6. Double click on "Ports (COM & LPT)"
7. Click on the Printer Port (LPTx) to highlight
8. Click on Properties
9. Click on Driver tab.
10. Click on Change Driver
11. Click on Show All Devices
12. Click on Printer Port (not ECP) under the Standard Port Type for the manufacturer
13. Click on OK until you get out of the System Properties
14. Reboot Computer

HP3600 USB printer works but won't print on my HP7058 Laptop


Try removing all ports from your laptop, then reboot, and then create just one USB port. Also, go to your hardware devices and make sure your usb ports don't have any question marks or yellow warning symbols. Be sure first that the drivers for your USB ports are installed and working first. This sounds either a faulty USB cord, which does happen, or USB drivers issues in your laptop. The printer is probably not the problem here.

Unable to scan -- I think I downloaded software for Dell 926 and rebooted, turned off printere, back on again, no luck. Help! JJB


we have a hewlett packard t45. We got a new computer without a lpt1 port, so we got a usb cable. Now it will only print, the print requires a lpt1 port to operate properly. The new scanners and all-in-one printers use a usb cable. I had to got to the manufactures website and do some searching and reading to figure it out.

Epson Stylus CX9400 driver settings


Not sure how you're removing the driver, but if you go to control panel device manager remove the printer totally as an option; reboot and then reload the printer. You also need to identify the remote printer in the print sequence or as your default printer in set-up (device manager). Hope this helps.

Also, check your port settings in Windows' Device Manager. Right-click My Computer on your Desktop (or click System from the Windows Control Panel), click Properties, and select the Device Manager tab. Click the plus sign (+) to expand the Ports menu item and view Properties for your Printer Port (LPT1). Verify that the port is working properly and it is enabled, and that you have the appropriate drivers installed. USB (Universal Serial Bus) printer cables can also come loose, and they often conflict with other devices. Remove any USB peripherals and try again. Next, check your printer status by right-clicking its name in the Printer window. Is it online? Is it your default printer? If another printer (or even a printing program, such as a virtual fax printer or Adobe Acrobat distiller) has taken over the default role, you may be printing to the wrong place without realizing it.
