You have to be sure that you are connecting the printer in exact the same USB port. If you are connecting to a different port and not to the one from was disconnected, the Windows is installing another copy of your printer. Check this, I believe this is the solution to your problem.

CHECKING THE INK LEVEL


Hello,
to check the toner level just press the button and wait the second light(orange) to turn On and then release the button. The printer will print two pages one with configuration and one with the supply status of the toner cartridge

Samsung SCX-4500W restore wireless printing on cryptic error


For those having trouble wirelessly printing to their Samsung SCX-4500W printer from a Windows computer, I have this "easy" 13-step process that usually fixes my most common printing problem:

The symptom:
You haven't used your printer in a couple of days and have just hit the print button in an application you wish to print a document from. Instead of your printed document gracefully emerging from your printer, a Samsung status window appears on your computer above the task tray, cryptically announcing "The current printer port is not supported for the current printer status". You scratch your head in complete confusion.

The solution:
  1. Go into the room where your printer is. Observe that it has dropped its wifi connection and not reconnected automatically - the blue light indicating wifi is no longer illuminated.
  2. Turn off the printer, wait a few seconds, and turn it back on.
  3. Rebooting always causes a blank page to be ejected - how annoying! Open up the tray and reinsert the blank sheet.
  4. Wait for the blue wifi light to come on.
  5. Return to your computer and open the printer job queue window. Locate your document in this window with "Error" status next to it: right-click on it and select restart so its status changes to "Printing".
  6. After a while, notice the status has changed to "Error - Printing" or "Error - Sent to printer". Since restarting the job was not successful, right-click and select cancel. Press the OK button in the confirmation dialog. You may have to do this a second time before the job clears.
  7. Return to the application you printed from and re-print the document.
  8. Double-click on the blue Samsung "S" icon in the task tray. A window titled Samsung SX-4500W Series will appear in the lower right. Observe the status first says "Please wait..." then show the same cryptic message "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Grrrr.
  9. Check if your computer really can access the printer by opening web browser and typing its ip address. For me, it is 192.168.1.70. Alternatively, click the "Printer Setting" button in the window of step 8. Observe that the printer reports it is alive and ready for action. This is good.
  10. Check if any other Samsung software is able to use the printer: Open SmarThru 4 software, select "Scan To", "Folder", then hit "Scan" button. Observe that scanning from the printer works absolutely fine. Close SmarThru. So the problem is just the crappy printer driver.
  11. Close any Samsung windows you have open. Navigate the start menu to Samsung SCX-4500W Series->Maintenance. The installer will run in maintenance mode and find your printer on the network (and show its ip address), as well as an option to use it on "Local Port". Select the printer on network and click Next. Select "Samsung SCX-4500W Series printer driver" to repair and hit Next. The driver will re-install. Click Finish when done.
  12. Return to your application you wish to print from and activate the printing of the document again.
  13. The Samsung status window will once again appear in the lower right proclaiming "The current printer port is not supported for the printer status". Ignore this stupid message and close the window. Go to the room with your printer and with any luck, you will find your printed document waiting for you!

Once you are well practiced at this, and can fully appreciate how useless Samsung's software developers are, you can just do steps 1,2,3,4, 5, 6,11,12, and 13.

I have ncomputing L300 thin client with usb port. I attached Cannon Laserjet LBP2900 to thin client usb. also installed drivers on host. printer is detected & shows printer ready. but when i give...


Since you posted this four months ago, there has been some major updates from NComputing to improve the USB architecture. This should improve support for peripherals such as your printer. Download the latest software for either W2K3 (v4.9.5) or W2K8r2 (v6.1.3) and update your system. Lastly, it is critical, and I mean absolutely critical, that you update the firmware on the L300 as well. The firmware is included with the vSpace update so once the host is updated, go to the L300 and tell it to update the firmware. The current firmware version that works with v6.1.3 or v4.9.5 is v1.4.1. As of this writing, 8/16/11, those are the current versions.

It suddenly went offline after printing a document. When I turn it off & on again, it manages to print the current job but then goes offline.


Turn off the SNMP option in the TCP/IP printer port Properties

Right-click the printer, select properties
Select port tab, highlight port, click Configure Port
UnCheck SNMP status Enabled.

This fix was given to me from Xerox Tech support.

HI CAN SOMONE HELP ME WITH MY PRINTER ITS A EPSON STYLUS DX5050,WHEN I CLICK ON PRINT NOTHING HAPPENS, A WINDOW OPENS ON PC SCREEN & IT SAY STATUS PAUSED. HELP THANKS KEV


STATUS PAUSED means your printer Epson is not connected. Check the port USB at the back of the PC yet connect it properly.
At the Printer Panel see if the printer is ready or not. Usually this problem occur when the port setting of the printer defaulted at LPT1.
Good luck!

I can not get two print servers to work on my network


I would suggest that you set a higher Ip address then 9-10 as it is possible that your router/switch is possibly using one of these for DHCP, I have one of these myself, I had to put mine a little uprange to prevent my router / switch from interfering with it.
