A printer is a peripheral which makes a persistent human readable representation of graphics or text on paper or similar physical media. Traditional printers are being used more for special purposes, like printing photographs or artwork, and are no longer a must-have peripheral; 3D printing has become an area of intense interest, allowing the creation of physical objects. An image scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Hand-held scanners, where the device is moved by hand, have evolved from text scanning "wands" to 3D scanners used for industrial design, reverse engineering, test and measurement, orthotics, gaming and other applications.

I have 2 HP printers, an Inkjet 2542 and a 4620.   Both were printer perfectly until I changed the black cartridge in one of them.  Now neither will print in black.  All test prints and clean and align print heads print only color.   I have checked all preferences and they all seem correct.   Any ideas?   I am running Windows 7

Free Tool: Path Explorer

An intuitive utility to help find the CSS path to UI elements on a webpage. These paths are used frequently in a variety of front-end development and QA automation tasks.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I have a Mac that is running Parallels 10.  For some reason, it stopped printing on the Windows 7 side.  I looked at the printers and they all show yellow exclamation marks.  I have checked to make sure that "Add all Mac printers" is enabled.  I even turned that setting off then back on.  I notice that it keeps installing an HP 2800 printer that is not even there.  Any help would be appreciated.

I purchased a Ricoh MP C307 printer directly rather than going through the Ricoh sales people. It's a brand new printer with new toner, but for some reason it won't print black, we have to change font color to blue in order to print it. I called the seller, he told me I haven't done the setup right and that there is nothing wrong with the printer, he advised me to hire a Ricoh tech to do the proper setup. I've setup 100s of printers in my life time, I am pretty sure there is no magic step that I missed during setup. Would appreciate any tips on how to fix this. Thanks!

I have an HP Laserjet, CP2025dn, and it is printing off slightly in the vertical direction ... and only in Black. See attached Photo ...
Does anyone happen to know if there is a adjustment or fix for this? I replaced the Black Cartridge and no change.

Hello Experts,

We are remediating security vulnerabilities.  I have several Ricoh MP 401SPF printers in our environment.  One of the vulnerabilities found was open TELNET.  I want to enable SSH and disable telnet.  I go into the printer interface and setup SSH as follows:

When I try to SSH into the printer, I get the following error:

Ricoh2.png
When I look at the logs, I'm not seeing much that will help me.  Here are the logs:

Ricoh3.png
I've googled the error and have not come up with much.  I've deleted the key and recreated it.  I've also tried different clients.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,
Nick

I have a client who is having trouble accessing the web interface on two different Konica Minolta Bizhub printers.  The symptoms aren't identical but may be related.

On his Bizhub Pro 920, he is able to access it from IE8 on XP without problems.  He's tried Windows 10 (IE, I presume) but gets a 405 error.

He is unable to get to the web interface on a Color Bizhub C7000 at all, even with the XP computer.

In both cases, he is able to ping, scan, and print using the IP address of the printer.

I'm trying to get better details from him but was hoping for some feedback as to whether there's something different about these printers as far as browser requirements for the web interface.

The computers and printers are connected to the same unmanaged switch.  The KM tech came out to look at them but wasn't successful at sorting it out.

Suggestions would be appreciated!

Hi all, I'm trying to modify the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\LPDSVC\lpr to improve the number of ports that LPD can use to send print job.
I can't understand why but, on two different server with same configuration  (Windows server 2012), I have different key.
On Developement server the registry key exist and I can add the key "UseNonRFCSourcePorts" in order to improve the number of port, on the Production server the key doesn't exist and I can't understand why.
Anyone can help me?

Regards

I am having a probelm with using local usb printers redirected for RDP session. I install the usb printer on the WYSE thin client Win 7 Embedded. The printer works. I then login to the RDP VM using use local resources with RDP session. The redirected printer shows up in the list of printers in the Virtual Machine (Win 10 pro). When selected to print it does not and just gets an error.

I then tried to share the printer on the thin client. I can connect to the printer and install while in the RDP session. It all works fine but as soon as you restart the VM, Thin Client or just logout the printer stops connecting.

Any ideas on using local usb connected printers. While logged into the RDP VM session?

I'm getting rid of a Lasterjet 1320 and am about to hook up a Laserjet Pro M203. HP printers can be tricky to install. With the 1320, you can neither install nor uninstall drivers when the USB is connected. However, I just got off a chat with HP wherein they insisted that I should hook up the new M203 to USB BEFORE I run the disk with the driver. Anyone know which is it. Rule of thumb with most hardware is, install the driver then connect it with whatever connection, USB, snap in etc. Thanks.

Hey guys,

We have four C558 printers and a few weeks ago our printers started printing  stacks of paper with random text on them. They will all print around the same time frame at random times with no consistency, sometimes late at night and sometimes early in the morning. The random text includes "Get / HTTP/1.0", "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.0", "versionbind" "HELP" and other random combinations of text.

We reached out to our vendor who handles our printers, and they checked the settings and shut off some excess features that we weren't using. They checked the driver versions for all the printers and they are as they should be. Doing a bit of research online, a few posts mentioned malware being the suspect, I don't believe that to be the case. Unfortunately the logs for the printers are unable to show any details minus the job says PRINTER and document says PRINT.

Since all four of these printers are printing random sheets at a high volume, it is consuming a lot of paper. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated. If you need further details please let me know. Thanks,

Kevin

I was experiencing significant interference and resulting wifi issues connecting a Lenovo Yoga 910 (which has limited USB ports) to my wifi network at 2.4 mhz.  I was using an USB 7 port hub which was adding to the problem.  I switched renamed the default network SSIDs which were the same at 2.4 and 5, then connected via the 5 mhz band and everything starting working very well with one exception.  My HP 8610 officejet printer operates solely at 2.4 mhz and I cannot figure out how to print (transmit the signals) from my laptop operating at 5 mhz to the printer wirelessly.

Can this be done and how?

Thank you for your assistance.

I have a Windows 10 PC. All of a sudden we are unable to print to the the shared printer I have been using for several years.

The printer is attached via USB to a Windows 7 PC and other staff are able toprint fine.

I noticed that the window on the ports tab of the printer properties (on the client PC) is empty. I deleted the printer from the PC and when I try to add it again I get nothing. If I let Windows search for it it comes back with nothing. If I manuall add the path (e.g. \\server\printer name I get the error message " Windows cannot connect to the printer - Operation failed with error 0x00000569.

Any suggestions?

Hi
I have 3 labs on a WIN-2012 network.  Each lab is on its own subnet.  I recently purchased a new network printer for one of the labs and I want to enable users who use the PCs in that lab to print to that printer.  There are 32 PCs in the lab so rather than adding the printer to each PC, I would appreciate if anyone can suggest the fastest way to add this printer.  Thank you in advance

Users get an "Acces Denied" error message when they try to "remove" a printer from their printers list. This is true on Windows 7 and 10.

User are NOT power users, but need the ability to add, and or remove printers as needed.

I currently have a C# WCF Service hosted in IIS 8.5  which allows users to print labels. Because the label printers are local printers for each user (USB connection on their laptops) they are forced to open the label in their browser and then click print on each label to print to local label printer. What the users want is for the labels to print automatically without any user intervention but without the printers being networked this does not seem possible - or is it?

Is it possible to use FTP to drop the text files (labels) directly onto the label printer spool queue of the laptop requesting the label?  The Service will have the IP address of each logged in user  but how can I send a file to a spooler rather than a folder and if it can be done can it be done silently ,without any user interaction.

I notice that when I send a label manually to the USB printer on the laptop (Windows 7 64bit) there are two files populated into c:/windows/system32/spool/PRINTERS. a SHD file type and a SPL file type. Is there any way of generating these two file for  the label text file to be printed?
 
I assume that a common FTP Site would need to be configured on each laptop for this to work. Appreciate any guidance and/or examples I can get.

regards
Pat

We have a complex set of spreadsheets that a tedious adjusted for columns widths. We print the finished product to a PDF file. HOWEVER, it now appears when someone prints directly to an HP printer, all of the column widths that are wider than 1.00 are slightly reduced. Is there a way to "lock" the column widths so Excel does not change them when someone happens to print to a different printer.
And no, when you change back to the PDF driver, the column widths do not return to their original setting!
