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.

One of our clients has a Xeorx Phaser 6600 and the new computer we just put in can't print from the bypass tray. It's connected, and the tray is an option in the print settings, but it constantly prints from the wrong tray. Any thoughts?

I have a Window 10 PC and have two printers connected via USB connections.  One is an HP multifunction laser printer and the other is a label type printer to print shipping labels.  For some reason (probably by mistake) , both are setup under the same port which is causing issues.  Please advise the easiest way to fix this issue - would it be uninstalling one of the printers and reinstalling??  Thank you for your help.

Hello all.

We have a Window's 2016 server with remote desktop and are having some issues with printers dropping out. We have a remote desktop environment with multiple printers. The model of the printers are as follows, UTAX P-4530DN, UTAX P-4530DN, UTAX P-4530DN KX, those are the main three with the problem. The issue originally was that they were disappearing from the RDS servers whilst users were signed in. However we managed to resolve this problem we adding it manually to each of the RDS servers. Unfortuantely this sparked another issue, and now the jobs get half way through spooling and the printers have to have their queues cleared and then have to be restarted. Once that has been done it will start to work again. They are added via IP address, and the printers have a physical connection to the network which is on the clients site.

I was wondering if anyone else had this issue, and if anyone could suggest why this might be happening? Please ask my anything if I have not been clear enough.

Thanks,

Kieran

Looking for something to map/discover a network of only two servers and 30 workstations. Something simple and inexpensive. The network is spread across 4 buildings and there are a bunch of printers and PLCs involved.

I am the system administrator on the IBM i platform. We have hundreds of printers throughout our enterprise. I recently came on board and have a couple of people that handle day to day operations. One area they spend a significant amount of time on is printer support. It seems when a printer runs out of paper, instead of a simple loading of the paper here are the steps required (sometimes) to get the printers functional again: ENDWTR *IMMED, Vary it off, physically unplug the printer, plug it back in, vary it on and STRPRTWTR. Wow!! This doesn't happen all the time but quite often. If we don't follow these steps, the writer looks active but a spooled files will sit in a PND status and never get to a WTR status. However, with the printer in this status I can use an LPR command to send a SCS spooled file to the printer and it prints fine.  

I should state that we are on V7R2 with the latest PTF's applied.

Attached are two pdf's. The configuration of one of our printers and a joblog when the above condition exists.

I guess what I'm asking is this... Has anyone else run into this? And if so, is there any solution beyond what we are doing? I even tried a vary on with a reset to no avail.

I'm currently trying to print out PDF files in a folder on my c drive,I thought it'd be smart to put all files in a printing queue, and then print them all in one go. Is this in any way possible with VBA?
I am trying to avoid looping through the folder.I cam manually copy and paste them in the print queue but I am trying to avoid doing that also.
Thanks

I am trying to print labels using a DYMO Developer SDK it uses javascripts here is my files PrintMeThatLabel2.js

I got most of it working with the help for you all. I have a from the user query sql then save the info to a json then the PrintMeThatLabel2.js get that info and prints the label. If the query get 10 recorded it prints 10 labels Great!


But if I want to print 1 label out of the 10 I don't know how to push the 1 json to the PrintMeThatLabel2.js for printing.


I got most of it working so when I press Print me button it reloads the json array with just 1 recorded then I have to click the big print button at the top to print just that 1 recorded.

If the user then want to print them ALL 10 he/she will have to query the db again for it to load all the recorded in to the json array then click the big print button to run PrintMeThatLabel2.js and print.

I am trying to not have the user rerun the page to print all label ones the just pick one of the record to print.


so 2 buttons 1 prints all the recorded and 1 prints just the one he/she picked.

Most of you will recognize this code

Hello

I am having issues getting Browser print working with Zebra label printer.  I am able to access the printer and it is printing however,  using IE 11 on the website 3PL Warehouse Management it will not print.  I know silverlight and java play a part in this however I believe it's the browser print software that is causing the issues.  We cannot use chrome or Firefox.  Has anyone ran into a fix for this?  3PL stated it might be a firewall issue however, it is not.  Please advise if you can thank you

HP PageWide 377dw MFP keeps going "offline".

It's attached to the network, and you can successfully ping it. But the only thing that temporarily resolves the problem is to unplug the printer, wait about 15 seconds, and then plug it back in. This only lasts for a few days before it goes offline again. Reinstalling the print drivers, restarting the print spooler, uninstalling and reinstalling the printer object at the computer(s) doesn't work. Interestingly, when it's offline and you web into its Embedded Web Server, it partially displays. The Home tab, the Estimated Cartridge Level and Network Summary "tiles" cannot collect information. The Network and Tools tabs would not display. They error out. We downloaded and ran the HP Print and Scan Doctor, but it could not repair the problem. We know it's not the network or the computers (Win 10 Pro). Other printers and network resources can be accessed without issues. We checked the Event ID > PrintService logs for errors, and there wasn't a single one. If anyone can suggest a solution, we'd be appreciative.

I’ve got a MacBook Pro, running High Sierra 10.13.4 & an HP OfficeJet 4650 All-in-One printer & can’t get them to work together. Using the HP software, I get no devices detected.
If I connect Mac to the printers built in WiFi network, it detects & sets up ok, but of course there goes my internet connection!

Can not print from Laptop. There appears to be an issue with the printer service. This is not printer specific. I am unable to use any printer.
I have checked appropriate services to be sure they are running and I have deleted all files in the systems32/spooler directory.
I tried to run Microsoft troubleshoot but it failed.
I am not sure if the related but I just replaced the hard drive.
The printers do say "ready".
The documents disappear from the print queue.

I'm running Windows server 2016. Users are connected via RDP. The local printers redirect fine, but...
When a user tries to print from a specific application (e.g. Crystal Reports), it does not print to default redirected printer, but to another one which is default for server, not for client machine.
Is there a fix to this problem?

I'm having the following issue:

We are using a dedicated system to share printers over the network, also using it for monitoring ends but thats not relevant to this case.
After installing the printers on this system, everything works fine. When I use a users computers to access the printer share and install the printers, they are installed but it doesn't install the same correct driver on the host computer.

The printer i'm trying to install is a Xerox Workcentre 7830. The driver used on the host pc is a General Xerox driver and i've selected the correct type on installation (7830).
When installing the printer on the users computer, it suddenly uses the 7855 driver, which is a complete different type and results in not being able to print to the Xerox 7830. I've even tried every driver from the Xerox website but it keeps giving the same results. Using an older driver seems to work, but then I can't change settings like which drawer to use etc.

I've configured the printer so users can't edit the settings so its not possible to change the driver manually to the 7830. I've configured the printer this way so users only have to double click the printer share to install is and so they can't mess with settings.

All users use Windows 10 Professional, same as the dedicated computer used to manage printers.
