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 one user that I cannot get his Dymo printer to work on his computer. Everything was working perfectly fine until we moved the user to a different building. I have tried the following, with no results.

1. Removing and Reinstalling all Dymo software and cleaning up the registry.
2. Tried different USB cables that I know to work on other Dymo printers.
3. Swapped printers with one that we use for shipping.

When I send a job to the printer, the printer will start trying to print and then stop. At this point, the printer will freeze up and will have to be power cycled in order to try it again.  Dymo's tech support was of no help.

Morning,

Is there a way to automate the export printers to a file within 2012? So rather than launching Print Management, then exporting printers to a file, I want it to do it automatically and drop it into c:\printerbackup.

Cheers

Cant print after upgrading Windows 7 to 10.  I have network printers and after upgrading two machines, neither can print.  Have uninstalled and reinstalled multiple times.  Other machines that were new installs of Windows 10 can print without issue.  So far the only thing i have been able to print is a pdf from Edge.  Test print fails although i do see the test page hit the queue momentarily before i get the failed to print message.  Please help.

Hello fellow Experts Exchange members:

I request your assistance with yet another problem involving a software vendor!

One of our offices runs a client/server billing program.

The program works fine ... except on one computer.

The program works fine on that one computer ... except that it cannot print labels correctly.

The program is set up to print labels to a Zebra LP 2824 printer using the ZDesigner LP 2824 driver with version number 2.7.03.16.

Here is the problem:
      THE PROGRAM HAS NO WAY TO SET THE SIZE OF THE LABELS TO PRINT ON!!!

The *ONLY* option the program has is to choose which printer to print the labels on.

The program seems to determine which size to use for the labels based on the settings in the "Preferences..." dialog box in the Windows printer settings.

Originally, I used a printer shared from the server with the correct printer settings both in the "Preferences..." and "Printing Defaults" dialog boxes, and the settings worked for every other computer.

However, on this computer I could not get the correct label size to appear in the print preview page of the program no matter what.

I created a local printer and set both the defaults and preferences correctly, but the problem continues.

Now, this vendor has been very helpful in all other matters ... but they have no clue in this case.

Using either the shared printer or the local printer with either the original settings or modified settings, the program on this computer …

I have multiple printers that have scan to email functionality. They were all working well, until someone decided to do a hard reset on our Comcast modem and wiped out all of the settings. After that we could no longer scan to email.

During this time I was in the process of upgrading the server and network, which I have since completed. Everything internally seems to be working, save for the scan to email function on our scanners.

The scanners are currently using domain.mail.eo.outlook.com as the SMTP address running off of port 25. No changes have been made to the scanner since the modem was reset.

I know we have a static IP through Comcast, which might have gotten wiped during the reset. Or some explicit firewall permissions were wiped.

Any ideas on what I can do to get my scan to email functionality back online?

Hello all,
I have never been asked this until this past week.
In Windows 7 there is Windows Fax under printers.
Can you send reports to this printer and have it fax the report to another fax machine without having a modem attached to your computer or network?
If not then why does Windows 7 come with this Windows fax?
Thanks,
Kelly W

Hi

My point of sales receipts is compiled from queries that gather the following:
(1)      Taxes
(2)      Quantity sold & prices
(3)      Other calculations
So in short it is not possible to use the current form to act as a receipt report. These queries are the one providing data for the receipt report, that is why currently to print a receipt report you need to close the current input form and open the parameter query form.
Now I’m wondering if there could a better way of binding the parameter query using the input form so that people do not need to close the current input form but can just invoke the printing of a receipt from the same input form.

I Thought MS Access save data into the table immediately after leaving a control, if yes how can I use the current primary key of the current receipt form as part of the parameter query so that the document printed is the current document showing on the input form screen?
I want to maintain the current form parameter query because sometimes the document may fail to print, then with the current parameter form query available I’m able to preview the document and reprint it.

I know it is possible to attach a macro to either print directly to the printer or preview the document by using the built in macro wizard, but the problem is how to the current document I’m not sure here because this macro wizard will only ask for the report to be printed, this means that I will end will all receipts being printed.

Could it be that there is …

How to get out of HP install nightmare.

I tried to install a Brand New HP Envy 5-55 today.

I cannot print. The printer says "to print, you need to finish setup"

Then, you have chosen to enroll in HP instant ink, finish your enrollment.

When I saw where the were going to FORCE me to do that, I tried to opt out. Guess that's not allowed.

It's a shame, I used to think HP was great, it's HORRIBLE.

Ant clues on how to get out of this?

Thanks

Dear experts,

I have Cisco voice gateway routers and I need to know if there are any fax lines active in this organization. Is there a way to figure it out and what is the process?
unfortunately, the company does not have enough info but they have many MFP printers with fax lines and are working.

Thank you

I do not feel that I can get an accurate answer from HP regarding a matter of concern. I have a very seldom used HP8620 printer. It has been enrolled in the "Instant Ink" program for more than a year and a half along with an HP extended warranty plan. I have not utilized the original cartridges that I had purchase as the first replacements yet. ( I bought them prior to joining the instant ink program). HP has sent me a set of the Instant Ink cartridges ready for their first use many months ago.  Since these are the first set I have not been charged the monthly fee yet. I accidentally let the hardware extended warranty expire by one month. The question: If I discontinue the instant ink program and attempt to utilize the new cartridges does HP have the wherewithal to prevent them from functioning?
NOTE: I have two other HP printers under extended warranty that DO utilize the instant ink program and the cartridges.

I am using a Brother MFC L2720 DW - which has a duplex printing feature. I am using Word 365 and I can only get it to print in automatic duplex if I save the document as a PDF - otherwise if I just want to print my Word document in duplex I have to manually turn the pages...any suggestions?

The ability is needed to scan relatively small 5" wide x 6" high paper tags, at a quick speed.
or
The ability is needed to scan these documents using a conventional type desktop scanner perhaps with a document feeder.

The issue is that the thickness of these tags is less weight than conventional copy paper, so not only is the issue that they might get jammed
in a conventional copier/scanner but they might even get torn.

What is suggested for situations like this?
Would a very fast hand scanner be an option?

Afternoon,

I'm having to decommission a server, I've been trying to find out how to change the site server within the printer itself. Does anyone have any idea since I can't get any concrete answers.

Hello,

This is my scenery:

I have Iseries machine with a Printronix p7010 as the default printer attached via twinax. I want this Printronix my default printer but now in my Network.

I have another printer IBM 6400 as spare so I connected this to my Iseries(via twinax) to work on my Printronix.

Finally I put my P7010 in my network (I can ping the IP Address ) following steps others guys from here gave me and also I create a remote output queue.(thanks guys)

I tested the remote outqueue moving a file from my default printer and release it. everything is printing fine but I need this remote outqueue as my default printer (called PRT01) because I want everything print immediately without release.

My programs when generate reports use PRT01.

I need your advice. Do I need to delete my default printer PRT01 and create another remote output queue with PRT01 name?  

I wait for your advises
Thank you very much

We have a Windows 7 machine (Dell that is several years old) that has a HP LaserJet 4000 connected to it via a Parallel to USB adapter.

Just recently it showed up as the dreaded UNKNOWN DEVICE under Devices and Printers.  (It had been working flawlessly for years.)

We have tried to move it to a different USB without any success and can't seem to find a way to delete it is completely from the computer and reinstall the driver and USB instance.

How can we make Windows 7 "forget this printer ever existed" and try to install it again? (The only options to fix it are troubleshoot it which doesn't work.)

(PS We have tried the printer and adapter on another computer with Windows 7 and it works!)

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

            I have a question regarding a printout I got from the following link https://www.mtsu.edu/hrs/benefits/components/2015NewBeginningEEPresentation.pdf.  Basically, the background or backdrop of each page printed is black.  While I can clearly read the text in the foreground, I am wondering if there is a way of having a clean or white background with black text in the foreground.

            Any feedback given in response to this question will be greatly appreciated.

            Thank you

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm moving my print server from a server 2008r2 VM to server 2016.  I've set up the new server and gave the printers the same names they had on the old print server.  I then created a group policy to deploy the printers from the new server which worked fine.  Now I want to change the users default printer from the old server to the new server.  For example, change the default from \\DC1\printer1 to \\DC2\printer1.  I stole this powershell script below from another thread and modified it for my environment:

$DefaultPrinter = Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows" -name Device
if ($DefaultPrinter.Device -eq "\\dc1\Printer1,winspool,Ne13:") { Set-ItemProperty  -Path "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows" -name Device -Value "\\DC2\Printer1,winspool,Ne26:" }

I manually ran the first line on my PC "$DefaultPrinter = Get-ItemProperty -Path "HKCU:\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows" -name Device" to get the value for the current default printer, then I pasted that info into the "if ($DefaultPrinter.Device -eq" part of the second line, using the same method I manually set \\DC2\printer2 as my default printer, then ran the Get-ItemProperty line again to find out the name of the new default printer, then pasted that info into the Set-ItemProperty section in the second line of the script.  I'm cannibalizing and learning simultaneously so there's some guessing involved.  This …
