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.

hi experts,

 I have setup 3 network printers connected to the server and they print slow one job at a time. I do have a color printer and that printer prints fast there is no delay like the other printers. Is there a setting for that?

I have installed a brand new Server 2016, printers are being deployed by GPO. The first weeks everything was working fine until users reported that their printer keeps asking to install the driver while they are trying to print.

Currently the issue is on Windows 7 64 bit machines. The printer is a HP Enterprise M553.

I would like to give one user on a 2012 R2 DC access to cancel print jobs and access to task manager. I've added them to the Print Operators group and logged them off and back on however their access is denied when trying to cancel print jobs and are unable to change printer settings. Also access to task manager. Thanks

Hello,

i want to install a printer, that i want to be named "INVOICE"

what i want : a user opens a file PDF and selects the printer named INVOICE.
The printer will print the current document 3 times (it is just one page) from a specific paper tray, in this case tray 3.

 i tried setting number of copies and paper tray setting in the basic "printing preferences" and "default printer settings" from the printer driver.  it  works for selecting paper tray, but the number of copies always get discarded.  

can this be achieved and how ?  may using a visual basic script ?

-Why existing firewall and DMZ architectures are not suited for securing cloud applications
-How to make your enterprise “Cloud Ready”, and fix your aging DMZ architecture
-How to transform your enterprise and become a Cloud Enabler

I have an HP 4350 printer.  When sending a print job, it prints the first page and then jams on the pages after.   The second sheet of paper is usually blank and can be removed from the top  without opening the lid.  The next sheet requires the toner cartridge to be removed and then the next jammed sheet can be removed where about two inches of the sheet has come through.  The rollers have been changed on all trays and the sensor is not jammed.  Any ideas on what the problem could be?

May be this is a simple fix and I'm missing something. It will print all other file types except Excel. See attached file for error.

I am trying to install  Dell Laserjet 5210n on our school network server so it can be shared across all clients. I have assigned a static IP address to the printer and I can ping it. When I try to install the drivers I downloaded from the Dell website I get the attached error.
I have tried installing as a network printer using the TCP/IP port and also as a local printer also using the TCP/IP port. Either way I get the same result.
The Server on the network is running Windows Server 2008R2 and all of our clients are Windows 7 Pro.  I did try to install it using a PCL driver found in Windows and I was able to print one test page but after that the printer went offline and will not come back on line even though I can ping still ping it.

Please Advise.

Thank you!

Hello,

we own a small copy shop, most we take copies.
sometimes customer come in with pdf files they want to see printed.

I recently got some files, that were not too big in file size, but the Ricoh copier wouldn't not print them.
i should state that the print actually did not get to the copier, the PC working on the PDF just started processing when i clicked printed, but the processing took for ages and as a result the print never came out (although on some occassions the copier seemed to be received data)

since this led to a small argument with the customer : he needed the prints badly, i could not give an answer what the problem was. i'm now intrigued what the problem with the PDF file is.  I printed afterwards PDF with over 100 pages just fine.

Here are some extra details:

Ricoh MPC3503 printer
Direct peer to peer printing using IP port
NO Postcript avalaibel
Ricoh PCL 6 driver installed, the specific for the device (not a universal)
i tried printing using Acrobat Reader DC and Foxxit Pdf 7.3
Windows 10 computer - 64bit Pro - Intel Pentium G3220 @ 3GhZ, 4GB Ram, Intel HD Graphics

How to clean the printer head for wepro dot matrix printer EX330+DX.The printing is not clear

Hello,

We just moved to a new print server and for the most part everything is working okay.  However, the printers are showing off-line in one of the departments, except one printer that they all print to.

1.  I have ran a gp update /force as an individual and as an admin
2.  The pharmacy users are should be in the right OU
3.  We did turn SNMP off for a moment to see if the printers would appear online, but it did not help
4.  None of the users have admin rights, but that should not make a difference when pulling from a print srver
5.  Could the system be pointing to the old print server somewhere in GPO or wrong on the new server?

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks!

VIDEO: THE CONCERTO CLOUD FOR HEALTHCARE

Modern healthcare requires a modern cloud. View this brief video to understand how the Concerto Cloud for Healthcare can help your organization.

My company has over 180 employees who use centralized printers throughout our buildings. Specifically, we need to cut down on the number of print jobs that are never retrieved.

We are also looking at user education regarding wastage printing. What is another method of making users accountable for the print jobs they send to the printers?

We would also like to minimized the amount of legwork (i.e., touching every PC) in accomplishing this task. We presently use a mix of HP and Dell printers. We are on an AD domain as well.
 Any suggestion is welcome.
