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.

Hello everyone,
This client of mine has ID card scanners which they have been using a 3rd party Citrix app to scan an upload, however now they desire to scan and then copy and paste somewhere else.  I can scan it and get it to work, but the ID appears at the top and then there is a lot of black space on the bottom.  Can someone recommend dimensions or many even a third party scanning program that has less limitation?

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

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

I need some help when trying to print remotely from a 2012 Windows Terminal Services box, when logged the printer shows redirected but once I try to print a test page I receive a message "test page failed to print. Would you like to view the print troubleshooter for assistance?" Any ideas? I have loaded a hp universal driver on the server and still did not work. When I try to test print using the Microsoft XPS redirected driver it works fine.

I have setup the prolific USB to Serial Comm Port (com 4) in device manager.
(I haven't set anything up in printers - should I?)
I am using this to operate a CB-910 Cash Drawer directly to the computer without a docket printer.
When connected the drawer keeps opening continually.
How do I stop it?
I am using MS Access with Visual Basic and hoping to open the drawer directly using VB code.
The code is
     DrawPrtr = "Com4"
     Open DrawPrtr For Output As #1
     Print #1, Chr$(7)       'Bell
     Close #1
I am running Wondows 10 Home, the driver is 3.8.18.0
USB \\ VID_067B & PID_2303 & Rev _0300
USB \\ VID_067 & PID_2303
I have wasted days on this getting no where. Any help would be appreciated.

Good Afternoon,

I was hoping someone would be able to help with a problem that I’m facing.
Just setup a new Windows 10 PC, they use RDP to connect to a Server running Server 2016 Standard and now whenever the user clicks print to the printer that has been setup locally (So re-directed on the server) it drops the RDP session immediately and after a few seconds reconnects

The printer that is locally setup is a Samsung printer which currently is using the "Remote Desktop Easy Print" driver. I’ve tried changing the driver to the actual Samsung driver and generic drivers always getting the same problem. Even tried a Hp Generic Universal PCL drive this still doesn't work.

Any thoughts?

Hello,

I need to map 2 local printers in an RDS server. One of the printers is a network one wich has assigned a local IP. The other one is conected to a local computer.

I know the RDS client has a check box to include local printers in the RDS enviorement, but for some reason it doesn`t work.

May i enable something in the RDS server? i have a server 2016 with multipoint services enabled. The local computers are a W7 and XP pro versions

Kind regards

Your "How to insert printer commands into a MS Word doc to determine printer tray.  Posted on 2013-10-03" applies to HP printers using PCL5.  Is this technique applicable to other printers not using PCL?

I'm using an Oki 182 IBM compatible dot matrix with a driver emulating Epson LX Series 1 (80) and wish to inhibit the paper out alarm.  The commands for this in the Oki handbook are Esc 8 (for ASCII), 27 56 (for decimal) and 1B 38 (for Hex).   Which of these (if any) would be appropriate within a Word 2000 document?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I have a Can MF5770 Printer, Scanner, Fax.  I had it working fine on a Windows 10 32 Bit PC.  I  got a 64 Bit Win 10 PC and can't get it to work.  I have downloaded and installed a driver from the Canon Website and a scanner patch for 64 bit PCs  In Settings I can see the scanner.  When I bring up the Canon scanner toolbox it says a supported scanner is not installed. In MS Word, Print - it does not show in the printer list.  Now what?

Good morning to whom this may concern,

We're currently in the process of upgrading our users OS from Win 7 to Win 10.
Some users have reported that when they've attempted to print images or documents from Microsoft Edge, or images from Photos on their system, the print option on their system is fine. However, when they go over to one of the network printers (Canon C5250i), nothing appears.
Other web browsers work fine (IE, Chrome, Firefox and Safari) and also users who still have Windows Photo Viewer installed on their system, are able to print from that.
I've done a test print to a local printer, from Edge and Photos, but they seem to print fine.

Has anyone else experienced this issue, and how they were able to resolve this?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I have been asked to recommend a printer model, to be used by some of our guys in the field. These are tradesmen, not IT people. The following are essential:

1. Battery powered.  
2. Capable of withstanding storage at high temperatures. These printers could sit in a car for weeks, without use, reaching 50+DegC each day.
3. Capable of printing on A4 paper.
4. Printed output need not be high quality, but needs to be legible, and not fade significantly over a few years.
5. Available in Australia.

The following would be nice:
1. Rugged
2. Bluetooth.
3.  Capable of working in a dusty and hot environment.
4.  Smaller the better.
5.  USB rechargeable batteries would be good.
6.  Cheaper is better, obviously. Prefer under about  $500USD.

The following are not important:
1. Colour. Not required, and just adds cost and complexity.
2. Consumable cost per print is not all that important, these devices will only be printing a handful of prints each month.
3. Speed is not very important.

Hello - we just upgraded from Xerox 7845 machines that were using USB Card Readers for Xerox Secure Printing over to  new Xerox Altalink C8070 copiers.   I moved to the USB card readers over and set the new machines up pretty much comparing settings to the old machines as closely as I could find.  Everything seems to be working correctly except for one small item that I would love to figure out.  After sending secure print jobs and retrieveing them at the device, they can only be printed one at a time.   Typically on the 7845 devices we would click  the 'Sel All' button and then print the entire list.   This is a widely used feature by our users... so I know they will be grumbling.  As it stands now.. the Sel All button is there, but when I press it nothing happens... it does not select the list and when I select print, nothing therefore happens.  The button is there but just seems dead.   What to do, what to do....?

What are the steps to setup a script or GPO setting to auto install network printers on computers once they are added to the domain?

I need info on the Xerox Fiery adapter. Its on a xerox workcentre 78xx series (I think)

What is the "Fiery" needed to do that a normal driver can't. I have never dealt with these before and my friend is complaining its slow and wants me to see what I can do. She says it slows down thier machine just by being there. (haven't we all heard that before)  Even they don't know what its for, it was just "part" of the machine and the vendor said it was required. I'll get with them tomorrow but I'm looking for unbiased opinion here.

They use this printer to print color bulletins, maybe 1500 at a time, not photos or fine art.

Hi there!

We have a PC w/ W10 in a LAN network. That PC is used as a file-server for that particular office. There are two types of users. One that have total access and control of shared content. Other is someone that can access the files, but with a read-only permission.
My question is this, can I restrict print of the documents for the second group with a folder permission?

Thanks!
