I have a wierd intermittent problem where the printer stops working on a Windows 7 machine. It has two printers connected a Kodak 5500 All in one and a HP Laserjet 1012. Both work well from the Win7 machine. However I keep having major problems with machines suddenly seeming to drop the connection to the printer. I have also:
A Wireless Vista 32 Business machine
A LAN connected Windows 2003 SBS.
Both of which I constantly seem to fight to use the printers on the Win7 machine.
Monday the Wireless connection worked with the Vista machine today nothing. I cannot see the printer anymore when browsing to "Find A Printer"
The Win2003 SBS can see the printers both but gives me a message returned saying "The printer has not yet responded, Microsoft Office may be able to proceed without the printer information. Do you want to continue to wait for the printer"
No matter what I choose nothing happens.
Has anyone had any problems like this that you can share you knowledge with. Any help is greatly appreciated.
