10 Tips for Troubleshooting Your Printer
http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0%2c2817%2c2412253%2c00.asp

My Printer Won't Print
If the printer doesn't respond when you try to print a document, make sure it's turned on and that a cable hasn't come loose. For both USB- and network-connected computers, the printer driver must be installed on the computer you're printing from. Occasionally the driver may become corrupted and have to be re-installed.
You can either do this from the disc supplied with the printer or by downloading the driver from the manufacturer's Web site. Printer makers generally have a page for which you can download available software for different models and operating systems. (You may also have to update the driver so that it's compatible with a new operating system, as many consumers buying Windows 8 computers have discovered.
Not sure if your computer already has a driver installed for the printer you want to use? With Windows, it's easy to check. Just open the printer folder from the Start menu or Control Panel. Depending on the version of Windows, it's either called Printers, or Printers and Devices. It will show a list of available printers, with offline printers grayed out. If your desired printer is offline, make sure it's properly connected to your PC or network. The default printer has a green check next to it. You can set another printer as default by right-clicking on it and following the prompts.
Right-clicking on a printer and clicking on Printing Preferences will reveal the driver settings. By tweaking them, you can adjust a number of functions, including but not limited to paper size and type, default paper tray, print quality, and duplex printing (if available). The printer software installation disc almost always includes a convenient interface to access printing functions, but it's faster to work straight from the driver.
Most new printers include a quick-start sheet, and many include a user manual. You should keep the installation disk and user manual in a convenient place. A growing number of printers include a user manual as a PDF file on the installation disk, or make it available from their Web site. It's always a good idea to download it to your PC.
HAVE A NICE DAY.

Check how many printers are installed, have you got a "Ghost " printer.

Go to device manager, then printer queues and delete any surplus printers.

OR remove all of them and re-install the printer.

Pc won't accept printer via usb connection


So why won't it accept the printer? Is the printer and your operating system on the computer compatible? Did you install the printer and drivers? Are you sure the USB Port works?
Have you tried a different USB Port?

Click Start/Control Panel and look for Printers. Open it and make sure you don't have more than one instance of the printer installed. If you do, then you're confusing the computer. You can also check to see if more than one of the same printer is installed by opening a word document, then click File, then Print, and when the print window opens up click the Down Arrow on the line that shows the printer name. This will show you all other installed printers.

I can't install my Brother MFC6490CW printer onto


All these three methods involve some specific code in the printer drivers both in Print server and clients.

Not all printers will have drivers that will support all 3 ways of using the printer. It appears that not all printer drivers, written for Windows Vista. If you can't get your network printer, please try the following steps to bypass the LPT redirection. 1. Install the Vista printer driver on your Windows Vista computer.
2. During installation, you'll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
3. After installation completes, open the Printers wizard from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
4. Right click on the entry for the new printer, and choose Properties.
5. Go to the Ports tab.
6. Click Add Port, select Local Port, then click New Port.
7. For the port name, enter the network path and share name of your printer ("\\TheirComputer\TheirPrinter1").
8. Click OK, and verify that the new port is selected.
9. Click OK to close the printer properties.

How to conect a printer


Install a printer on a home network

There are two basic ways to make a printer available to the PCs on your home network:

  • Attach it directly to one computer and share it with all the others on a network.

  • Connect the printer as a stand-alone device on the network itself.

This article explains how to do both in Windows. However, you should always first consult the information that came with your model for specific installation and setup instructions.
Setting up a shared printer

Traditionally, the most common way to make a printer available to a home network has been to connect it to one of the PCs and then tell Windows to share it. This is called a shared printer.

The advantage of sharing a printer is that it works with any USB printer. The downside? The host PC always has to be powered up, otherwise the rest of the network won't be able to access the shared printer.

In previous versions of Windows, setting up a shared printer could sometimes be tricky. But a new home networking feature in Windows 7 called HomeGroup has greatly simplified the process.

When a network is set up as a homegroup, printers and certain files are automatically shared. (To learn more about what homegroups do and how to use them, go to the Windows website and search for "HomeGroup: Recommended links.")

If you've already set up a homegroup and want to access a shared printer from another homegroup PC, just follow these steps:
To manually connect to a homegroup printer

  1. On the computer the printer is physically connected to, click the Start button ?id=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33, click Control Panel, type homegroup in the search box, and then click HomeGroup.

  2. Make sure the Printers check box is selected. (If not, select it, and then click Save changes.)

  3. Go to the computer you want to print from.

  4. Click to open HomeGroup.

  5. Click Install printer.

  6. If you don't already have a driver installed for the printer, click Install driver in the dialog box that appears.
    Note

    • After the printer is installed, you can access it through the Print dialog box in any program, just like a printer that's directly connected to your computer. The computer that the printer is connected to must be turned on to use the printer.

Setting up a network printer

Network printers-devices designed to connect directly to a computer network as a stand-alone device-were once found mostly in large offices. No more.

Printer makers are increasingly offering inexpensive inkjet and laser printers that are designed to serve as network printers on home networks. Network printers have one big advantage over shared printers: they're always available.

There are two common types of network printers: wired and wireless.

  • Wired printers have an Ethernet port, which you connect to your router or hub via an Ethernet cable.

  • Wireless printers typically connect to your home network using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology.

Some printers offer both options. The instructions that came with your model should tell you exactly how to install it.

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Devices and Printers.

  2. Click Add a printer.

  3. In the Add Printer wizard, click Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer.

  4. In the list of available printers, select the one you want to use, and then click Next.

  5. If prompted, install the printer driver on your computer by clicking Install driver. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

  6. Complete the additional steps in the wizard, and then click Finish.
    Tips

    • Make sure that you have permission to use these printers before adding them to the computer.

    • You can confirm the printer is working by printing a test page. For details, see Print a test page

How to connect aprinter to an acer one


check the installation instructions of the pc. the problem might be on the printer, since many printers operates on selection OSs such as windows or macintosh. the tip would be, since you cannot use the printer, go back to the retailer and exchange it for another printer that is compatible with linux.

nonetheless, before doing this, make sure that you have followed the instructions on installing the driver's software of the printer.

may I ask what is the brand of the printer? so far, hp printers or fujitsu printers do not entail much problem on linuz operated PCs.
