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.

Problem printing to 2 win 10 1803 PC. One is a desktop, both are brand new machines, one a laptop,
I Have 6 other win 10 PC’s in office including another laptop, all these work.
Current Users are administrator user,
NO AD, just workgroup
All pc’s are updated

I have done all the following changes,

Turned off firewalls and A/V completely, same Server connection error from bizhub c364
Turned on firewall, open all smb ports and port 445 to allow scans, same Server connection error from bizhub c364
Deleted then scans folder and recreate folder and sharing with everyone at full control, and current user sign in name as full control, same Server connection error from bizhub c364
Deleted and re completed the registration in address book.
Have also tic’d and untic’d the smb1 feature in add and remove features.
Have also turned OFF/ON file sharing, network discovery, and file sharing in network advanced settings

All other PC’s (Win 10 1803) work fine using the following registrations, example given,

Host Name--      192.168.1.114  (IP) address of the pc)
Folder--            scans      (shared scan folder with full permissions off the C drive like others)
User name            user      (local user name)
Password      password      (local user name password)

The error from the bizhub never changes, “server connection error”
all pc’s have no internet issues, can ping printer IP from the 2 not working, have powered printer on and off. Very frustrating. I am to believe that smb2 is already enabled …

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?
Many thanks,
-Ben

For no particular reason at all, we are now receiving the following error when printing from a remote desktop session on Windows Server 2012 R2. We are running Parallels Remote Desktop Application server, with 3 Win Svr 2012 R2's in the pool.  Users CANNOT Print from their windows remote sessions to network printers.

The document Print Document, owned by XXXXXXX, failed to print on printer {C092F33B-0674-436D-995C-B2E3B5E66090}. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.

We have a couple of old Lexmark 2500+ series dot-matrix printers still in service that are used to produced shipping labels, one or two or ten at a time. These printers have a horizontal metal shaft and the printhead slides back and forth on that shaft, driven by a motor and cogged belt. One of these printers has started to malfunction and as best I can tell it's because the printhead/shaft mechanism is in need of some lubrication. If you slide the printhead manually, you can feel resistance. Cleaning the shaft with rubbing alcohol seems to provide a temporary fix. Once upon a time, I was told that printers of this type should never be oiled as it would ruin the bearings in the printhead mechanism. However, according to the service manual on this Lexmark this one should be lubricated when certain parts are replaced, including the "oil felt (carrier block)". It further goes on to say that only mineral oil based lubricants should be used and gives a Lexmark part number 1280443 and these approved equivalents: Mobil DTE27, Shell Tellus 100, Fuchs Renolin MR30. My questions are, should I be lubricating this printer even though I'm not replacing any parts? Secondly, I'm having difficulty finding the specified lubricants in any size other than 5 gallon containers, costing over $100 each. These all appear to be "anti-wear hydraulic oils". Am I obsessing too much trying to find the exact spec oil or can I get by with something off the shelf, as long as it's mineral oil?

Our business just got a new copier.  The old copier drivers work on the new copier, but I want to update workstations to the new driver.  So, I added a 2nd printer GPO (users/policy/windows/deploy printer) and (computers/policy/windows/deploy printer), so the transition would be seemless to the end user.  In a couple weeks, I want to remove the old printer driver gpo (gpo setup the same way).  If I simply delete the old gpo, will the printers disappear from the users device & printers?  If not, what do I have to do to remove the old printer install?

Dear experts,

I can see my word document  with correct level of header and footer margin.

When i print it using my 'HP Deskjet GT 5810,' i find that the footer margin is very large.

So to check what was happening , i saved my above word document into a pdf document . I then I turned the pdf up-side down (turned it 180 degree). I printed the pdf document once again.  i found that the footer margin in the (180 degree turned doc) print out is still large ( irrespective of  the  swap )

Means there is no difference in the footer margin irrespective of how i print the page.

I understand from this observation that I might need to tweek my printer.

Kindly suggest if i need to make changes in my printer

We need a fax line (RJ11) to plug into our e-STUDIO3005AC. Verizon came out and ran a cat5e cable to the printer from the verizon ONT and gave it a telephone number. Issue is we need an RJ11 to plug into the copier. Should I buy this https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N8XIT4O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Its basically an RJ 45 - RJ11 cord. Would that work if I plug the rj45 into the cat5e wall plate and then the rj11 into the fax? Or do I need to do something else?

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.

Hello - we have a shared printer from Server 2016.  It's a Konica Minolta bizhub C364.   I changed a few settings on the shared printer from the Server's GUI printer properties window.   I click the Advanced Tab and select "Printing Defaults" then change the following settings.   1.  Set to Grayscale   2.  Set to 1 sided printing  3.  Set the "Account Track" password

I then install the Shared printer on one of the computers and see both numbers 1 and 2 above get set on the installed printer, but not number 3.   I reached out to the Printer company that supplied this machine and they are scratching their heads.   We tried to reinstall the printer, removed the drivers and downloaded the latest from Konica.    We can only print on workstations if I manually set the "Account Track"  on the shared printer after I install it.    Would like to get that "Account Track" code pushing down to workstations.   It was working on the previous Server (SBS 2011) but i can't seem to find what's making it work on that server and not the new one.

Anyone seen this before?

On a Canon IR-ADV 5235, when Scanning to Email, if the files are beyond a specific file size it will split the emails in two, with the attachments.
I would like to specific the maximum scan/file size that it can send, so that it doesn't split the file in 2.

I have a Lexmark MX417de, I downloaded the app to gain more functionality in windows 10, however as soon as I set the settings on this app and click "scan" I get an error as follow:


"There was a general error trying to communicate with the device"


However, when I use the built in tool in windows scanner/faxes it works OK, this seems to happen only with the utility I downloaded.


I have removed and re-installed multiple times the drivers and the app, but it continues to get the same error regardless for what I do.

We have Avast as our antivirus and I am not sure this is causing any issues also when trying to scan.


Thanks,

Python 3 Fundamentals

This course will teach participants about installing and configuring Python, syntax, importing, statements, types, strings, booleans, files, lists, tuples, comprehensions, functions, and classes.

I've got a user on a MacBook Pro, who's connecting to a 2016 server via rdp 8.0, but cannot use his local printer.
Of course this all worked fine under the old 2008 terminal server, but hasn't worked with the new & improved stuff.
When trying to add the printer, I can see other macs showing up, like TS009 (Joes-MacBook-: PRN2:# 9), but am not seeeing this guy's mac listed there.
Went back to try installing printer on the server & while I see full function software & driver for all desktop OSs, the servers listed stop at 2008.
Is printer just incompatible with that server, killing the whole idea right there?
Looks like that printer is about 8 years old, is it time for a new one?
Any other work arounds?
Thanks!

A client has a Ricoh MP3003 printer that they can't print PNGs\Jpegs from Outlook using quick print but can print PDFs and Word docs.

One user is on Windows 7 and can print if the file is saved to the desktop before printing.

The other user on Windows 10 can't print images either way.

The screen hangs on scanning for the printer (see attached)
The Windows 10 user also getsErrorMsg an error: Your pictures can't be printed because this error occurred: An internal error occurred.'
