I have a networked Canon IR3320 Office Printer which is set up as a shared printer on a Win2003 Server. Most of the time it prints in the correct font but characters are missing? Occasionally the printout is complete garbage.
If you install as an IP printer with driver installed locally on client it prints fine.
The printer has never worked properly as a shared printer with Win2003. We recently changed from an NT server to the Win2K server. Printer worked fine when shared from NT Server. In fact it still does. If you power up the NT server and connect to the ‘old’ printer share it works fine.
The driver is for PCL5e. I have not tried the PCL6 driver.
I have tried;
• Uninstalling printer driver the reinstalling latest Win2003 driver from Canon
• Uninstalling driver and re-installing original, older driver from the CD supplied with the printer
• Setting spooler to “start printing after last page is spooled”
I have not tried setting the spooler to “print directly to printer” as this is not what is required. I want all documents to be spooled.
Any suggestions what to try next?
