Hopefully a straight forward answer. We have had 22 printers recently installed and one of them has just recently started to get low on toner and as a result it is now emailing me every time a user prints. Is there a way to remove this notification? I have been through the settings on the printer and in uniflow but cant for the life of me find it.

Thanks

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

my OS is win 10 pro 64 bit and my printer is a HP OfficeJet 8600 Pro.  My printer driver got corrupted somehow and I tried to reinstall the software from HP, but I seem to get so many unwanted programs, and not the plain driver.  I have also searched the web and they all come bundled with lots of junk.  Do anyone of the experts know a site where I can download just the program I need for my OS.  thank u.

So I guess laser printing bar codes onto fruit/vegetable skin has been a thing for a while now. Slipped my radar. I only heard about it recently from this article where a market in the UK is using the technology on Avocados.

The labels, which are etched onto fruit's skin with lasers instead of stickers, will save 10 tonnes of paper and five tonnes of glue every year according to M&S.

Here is the company behind the technology:

Berries, grapes, etc are going to be in a package anyway. This is for fruit that gets those little individual stickers: avocados, grapefruit, oranges... good question though about thin skin like apples, may not work so well.

In another year, they'll probably be dispensed like gum-balls.

I have a Canon Pixma MG6853.

I've can't seem to get it to work via wifi on Windows 10.
It worked for two days approximately just when I bought it and set it up and then suddenly stopped.

It works via:
USB
Wifi on Windows 7 laptop

Printer is connected succesfully to wireless network.
My two Win 10 devices cannot ping the printer either.

What I tried:
Assign a fixed IP address on router -> printer receives new IP after reboot
Disabled IPv6 on printer
Disabled (obviously) Antivirus and Firewall on laptop
Played around with sharing settings on winodws
Uninstalled and reinstalled Wifi adapter drivers
Updated Wifi adapter drivers

I cannot find connect to the printer using the Canon driver installer utility nor via the classic TCP/IP wizard from Windows.
IP address is 100% correct as I can ping it and use it on a Windows 7.

Am I missing something here?

One Windows 10 is 1607 and the other is 1703.

Hi, All - I am a budding FileMaker developer, and I have a new client who wants a POS system The first challenge I need to solve is how do I get the cash drawer to open.

My research has shown I can get Troi Serial but I am hoping to open the drawer natively, or at least perhaps using 360 Scriptmaster plugins send a windows shell command.

The printers are Epson TM-T20, The operating system of the POS tills are Windows 10.

Any guidance is very appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi,
I'm here to pick your brains and find out how you perform the following tasks at your sites.
  1. Workstation Maintenance
  2. Workstation Windows Updates
  3. Workstation Driver Updates
  4. Workstation Installing Windows 10
  5. Login Scripts that include installing printers and configuring Outlook, McAfee, etc.
How do you perform these tasks and what are you using and how are you using.
I'm at a small site where there are about 50-55 workstations and I've managed them manually on a quarterly schedule.
I'm now looking at best utilities and practices to perform the tasks listed.

Thanks,

Recently it has been noticed that laptops at one of our sites are incorrectly detecting directory printers. What I am talking about is when you attempt to add printers and select "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer" then Windows performs a search of devices and returns a list. Sometimes this list returns only the printers that are published from the printer server at that AD-Site. The very next search can return the printers from all sites.

The IP address of the laptop doesn't change, the IP subnets for the laptop, printers, and print servers are all correctly configured for the Site. The location entry for the AD site matches those of the printers and the site the device thinks it a member of is correct. My first thought was that the wireless IP range for the network wasn't assigned a site but was wrong.

I guess I'm looking for any insight as to how this is intended to work as so I have an idea where to look next. Process monitor doesn't provide much assistance.

I have a single Exchange 2013 box running all roles on a VM. It’s been in place for years and we haven’t made any recent changes. I built a FrontendTransport receive connector to allow selected internal and external servers to relay anonymously. This has been in place for years as well and nothing has changed recently. In the middle of the day one day last week mail suddenly stopped relaying from internal servers and printers. Any servers on a different subnet relay just fine. Incoming and outgoing mail works as expected. When I point the internal servers to the outside IP address for the Exchange server, and add their external IP address to the relay connector the mail flows fine.

I used ADSI Edit to verify that Anonymous Logon had “Accept any Sender” selected. I have restarted the server and the Transport service many times and even deleted and recreated the receive connector. I cannot telnet into the server from the LAN either. I get a “421 4.3.2 System not accepting network messages” error. I can connect and send mail via telnet from the Exchange server itself. There is not any AV software installed on the Exchange server. I have tried turning off, turning on and disabling the firewall. I even created a rule to allow port 25 separate from all of the Exchange rules. I cannot figure out what’s happened here. Any help you can provide would be appreciated.

Connect further...control easier
Connect further...control easier

With the ATEN CE624, you can now enjoy a high-quality visual experience powered by HDBaseT technology and the convenience of a single Cat6 cable to transmit uncompressed video with zero latency and multi-streaming for dual-view applications where remote access is required.

We currently use a Print Script to install and map printers to all users on log in, but are toying with the idea of using Deployed Printers GPO, what have people found the pros and cons of using the two methods above?

Basically we are after a few options...
1. Speed up log in times
2. Make print deployment and management alot easier

Hi All,
I would be very grateful for your assistance on enabling Devices and Printers in Windows 10 via GPO. I have attached some images of the current setup.
Basically we restrict our desktop environment via Group Policy but I would like to allow users to view the devices and printers page of the Control Panel.
I have allowed 'Microsoft.DevicesAndPrinters' in Group policy but the Devices and Printers page is still not available for users. Could it be that Windows 10 uses another name for Microsft.DevicesandPrinters?

Thanks in advance.

So a medical office that I do work for has about "25 boxes" of records they'd like to save on their desktops and otherwise shred and get rid of.  Is there hardware that you can recommend that can take care of this?


Thanks!

Hi All, I am trying to install printer Canon 5500 on windows 2012 server, i have created a group policy under users, then in Print Management i have deployed it through the wizard "Deploy with Group Policy".

When opening a .jpg/.tiff or similar file that is attached to an Outlook 2010 message; it opens the file in Windows Photo Viewer with the message "please wait while the printer sends information to windows" which never goes away, the print button is grayed out. This happens for all available printers including network printers, local IP printers, and Adobe PDF.

Saving the file to the Desktop, opening with Windows Photo Viewer, and selecting print works without any issue.

I have tried the following:
Rename %systemroot%\System32\Spool\Printers to Printers.old
Rename %systemroot%\System32\Spool\Drivers\w32x86 to w32x86.old
Restarted Print Spooler service
Disabled DEP and previewers in Outlook
Reinstalled print drivers for network printers and Adobe

Hi

I have a costumer with a HP Color Laserjet Flow MFP M880. The costumer wants to be able to use blank pages as seperator when using the scan-to-email function.

Example. Has a stack of 10 sheets of paper, the first sheet is 1 document, sheet 2-4 are 1 document and so on. The user wants to be able to put a blank sheet of paper in between the documents to tell the scanner that every time it meets a blank sheet of paper, it has to se it as the end of the document. Otherwise the scanner will just merge all documents into 1 PDF and the user has to split them up manually.

Regards Lars

Hello,
I have a Xerox WorkCentre 7545 on network.  All of the computers on the network are having the same problem as of this morning.  Whatever they try and print, goes to the printer and pages come out but they are all blank.  The really strange thing is that if you go up to the printer and make a copy of something, the copy prints out just fine.
I'm totally scratching my head on this one.
Thank You.

Hello. I am trying to setup a 5250 Printer Session from a remotely located IBM ISeries (V7R1M0) to my local machine using an HP LaserJet M605 printer. I have setup many 5250 Printer Sessions before using other printers (HP LaserJets, Lexmark) but for some reason after I set this one up to print to the M605 printer, nothing prints. The ISeries seems to be sending the print file normally but the M605 does not print anything. I am assuming that there is some "trick" to getting this to work but I don't know what it is. I have tried the Manufacturer and Model Type paramter to other types of printers without success. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You!

I have been asked to create a Scan Statistics database here at our small non-profit organization for two scan operators in a split database. We are using Access 2016.

My skill set in VBA is beginner, and I am afraid I am a little overwhelmed with it , but am trying to get some VBA skills as it looks like it makes Access soar !

The goal is to update on a daily basis what the scan operator did that day. In the attached database, see f_Scan_Batch_Details.

On the form I have some command buttons. Here are the goals:

Clicking on the command button "1.  Select the scan folder", allows the scan operator to select the Main folder name,where they did their scans for the day.

The scan operator fills out the following fields:

Scan Operator
Scan Date
Scan Start Time  ( Can  "Scan Start Time" be extracted from the earliest scan in the folder instead of data entry by the scan operator ? )
Scan End Time   ( Can  "Scan End Time" be extracted from the earliest scan in the folder instead of data entry by the scan operator ? )
Scanner Used
Notes

After the fields in yellow have been filled in, I would like the scan operator to press the second command button to do  required counts and calculations and actions to provide the following statistics and update all of the tables with the appropriate Foreign Key.

The relationships  are:

CountFiles was working originally, before normalization attempt by me, thanks to help from Bill Prew.

No comments, but we're still running WordStar v.7 as our main word processor. We operate the 32-bit version of Windows 10, and we physically print letters from WordStar via a PCL driver (mapped to shared Windows printers). This works fine with all of our printers except one - our Canon iR4570 copier.

Our main copier has just gone to the wall, so we're down to only one LaserJet that can carry out this function. Obviously I want a bit more redudency than this.

We run Wordstar as a legacy app through the ntvdm.exe process we've installed with Windows 10 32-bit. If I send a print job via PCL to the iR4570 it generally never prints anything, and the touch-screen concole becomes unusable. It is like it is running a corrupt process that is consuming all memory and/or CPU cycles . The only way to recover is to physically switch the iR4570 off.

On very rare occasions, it does start printing, but just junk text comes out - either filing the page, or just a couple of letters at the top of each page. It'll print until the trays are empty.

If I print to the iR4570 via PostScript from Wordstar, it is absolutely fine. HOWEVER, PostScript fonts are slightly bolder, and it doesn't look quite right for our requirements.

The iR4570 has a pretty much identical firmware to our other copier that went to wall, and which handled this all fine with PCL printing, day in day out, until it's demise. I'm hopeful there is something just not right in the settings I can flush out - but before…
