cannon bjc-610 printer can't be found: LPT1 not ready
Posted on 1998-12-17
have a canon bjc-610 bubblejet printer. after installation, it typically has worked for a time (may or may not be related to restarting the computer) and then cannot be "found" printing a test page yields "ERROR writing to LPT1: for document test page: the device is not ready."
1) i've installed the most recent windows NT40 drivers that cannon has on their website. (Running NT 4.00.1381 with service pac 3.)
2) ive deleted and reloaded the printers
3) most recently, the delete and reload of the printer failed to solve the problem.
