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 All,
I would be very grateful for your assistance on enabling Devices and Printers in Windows 10 via GPO. I have attached some images of the current setup.
Basically we restrict our desktop environment via Group Policy but I would like to allow users to view the devices and printers page of the Control Panel.
I have allowed 'Microsoft.DevicesAndPrinters' in Group policy but the Devices and Printers page is still not available for users. Could it be that Windows 10 uses another name for Microsft.DevicesandPrinters?

Thanks in advance.

Hi

I have a costumer with a HP Color Laserjet Flow MFP M880. The costumer wants to be able to use blank pages as seperator when using the scan-to-email function.

Example. Has a stack of 10 sheets of paper, the first sheet is 1 document, sheet 2-4 are 1 document and so on. The user wants to be able to put a blank sheet of paper in between the documents to tell the scanner that every time it meets a blank sheet of paper, it has to se it as the end of the document. Otherwise the scanner will just merge all documents into 1 PDF and the user has to split them up manually.

Regards Lars

Hello,
I have a Xerox WorkCentre 7545 on network.  All of the computers on the network are having the same problem as of this morning.  Whatever they try and print, goes to the printer and pages come out but they are all blank.  The really strange thing is that if you go up to the printer and make a copy of something, the copy prints out just fine.
I'm totally scratching my head on this one.
Thank You.

Hello. I am trying to setup a 5250 Printer Session from a remotely located IBM ISeries (V7R1M0) to my local machine using an HP LaserJet M605 printer. I have setup many 5250 Printer Sessions before using other printers (HP LaserJets, Lexmark) but for some reason after I set this one up to print to the M605 printer, nothing prints. The ISeries seems to be sending the print file normally but the M605 does not print anything. I am assuming that there is some "trick" to getting this to work but I don't know what it is. I have tried the Manufacturer and Model Type paramter to other types of printers without success. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You!

I've been using this printer for a long time and rarely have problems with it.
The worst I have to do is tell it what paper is in the Tray 1 feeder.

I am trying to print envelopes from Word 2013.
Well, they print just fine!

But, I have a mail merged word document of nearly 200 envelopes.
I have saved the document so it should now be just a plain Word document with #10 envelope-sized pages.
I have managed to print a few one-off but generally the printer just sits there and says "Ready" and the computer says there are no documents waiting to print.
All I need to do is launch the multi-page print job!!

I do know that there is going to be a message about margins when an envelope print job does work.  But that message isn't popping up on the ones that fail.  A clue?

How?

Does anyone know how to get the scanner software or feature to work on a Canon ImageCLASS D1150 copier/scanner?  

The printer works just fine if I download the drivers from Canon or any other google sources but when I try to get the scanner to work, the Canon MF Toolbox will not see the scanner (even after updating the drivers and also tried adding outbound and inbound firewall rules.

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/PRINTER/CANON/Canon-imageCLASS-D1150-UFRII-Printer-Driver-270.shtml

http://community.usa.canon.com/t5/Office-Printers/Imageclass-D1150-and-WIndows-10/td-p/153210

The client is using Windows 10 and I tried several options related to the above URLs and other issues that folks have encountered with Windows 10.

Let me know if anyone has any suggestions on how to get the Canon MF Toolbox Kit to see the scanner?

thank you!

I have been trying to re establish a lost scanning connection with my Ricoh Aficio 2022 with my computer workstation.   No matter, SMB just failed for no reason.    I gave up.  it was working for years then just suddenly failed

So I installed filezilla.   Still does not work but i think I just do not have the correct syntax.

Filezilla server invoked for my computer.  192.168.1.xxx
The Ricoh then set up as follows

FTP
Port 21
Server 192.168.1.xxx (my workstation)  or \\servername    (tried both)
Path:    \folder    or  \sharename\folder
user:    username
password   password

None of this works.

I am missing one syntax call.  What is it?

The FTP connections work just fine on the LAN.       This is all LAN based.  I am not making any external WAN calls (yet)

Ports 21 and 22 forwarded to my 192.168.1.xxx computer

thank you

We have an Okidata ML420 connected to the network via an HP 170 Jet Direct.  It will work for months and then only print part of the print job.   I have to uninstall it and reinstall it.  
The network is Win 2008 R2.  The printer is installed on a Hyper-V VM.  I wasn't using a Print server, previously, but today I set one up.   I'm not physically at the office so I don't know if this will help.

This is a big problem because we do all of our invoicing from this printer.  

Any suggestions will be appreciated.  I'll be at the office Monday.

I have remote locations that are using PC's that are completely locked down as far as privileges so the users are unable to install printer drivers.  Other than Google print, is there any way to print to a printer without having to install drivers on the PC?  Is it specific to the printer as to whether it can do it or not?

I have a Fujitsu fi-5120C scanner attached to Windows 7. I've scanned using Foxit PhantomPDF and IfranView. In both cases I get a list of 3 sources, yet there is just the one attached to my computer. Why? Which should I select? Does it matter?

Control Panel > Devices and Printers, shows only one scanner: fi-5120Cdj

3 scanner sources

I have a windows 2012R2 printer server.  I am trying to add printers to windows 7 clients.  I have setup GPO under the highest level and added printers to the user configuration - preferences - control panel - printers.

It works perfect if i assign a user to the delegation or through Item level targeting

However, it i try to use a security group with the same user the printers do not get deployed to the client
 
Anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks,
Kenny

Current HP 8210 printer on LAN (Apple Airport Extreme) + 2 macOS Sierra has variable IP address (e.g. 10.0.1.123)

How do I set permanent IP address?

Currently, I let Macs find printer which requires booting Mac, then start printer which has variable IP address.

Entering current (variable) IP address in Safari browser returns useless info.

I work at a place that has a Konica Minolta 200 printer/copier/scanner. They have only ever used it as a copier. I want to hook it up to the network so that people can print to it. My problem is I can't seem to find a driver for the Konica Minolta 200. Anyone have any idea where I can get the driver?

This is on a small peer-to-peer network.
Multiple computers with the same problem.
It appears this is very common and I find no solution.

Free Tool: ZipGrep
LVL 8
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 to send someone a PDF. After scanning a text document and clicking on the document before saving it there is a drop down menu to choose formats. The file formats on the list are:
tif, bmp, pcx, jpg, pct, tga, png, and all files.
This scanner creates files that are quite large as far as pixels and I have to use Irfanview to reduce the size.
There is a Full Auto mode, Home mode and Professional Mode and I have tried all of them and once scanning and looking in the format drop down window I never see PDF as a choice.

I have Scansnap's desktop scanner http://www.fujitsu.com/us/products/computing/peripheral/scanners/scansnap/ix500/ 

I have the requirement to scan to pdf and email at the same time.  The ScanSnap can do this, however, it requires using a desktop email client.  My requirement is to have the ability to scan,pdf and email without using the user's email client as everybody is on web mail.

One option is to save the pdf's to a folder and then listen for new files to hit a folder and email via smtp.  For this request, I am looking for suggestions on a desktop scanner that can do this. I have the ability for this function on a larger multi function device, but need desktop.

Have to get a scanner / printer with scan to folder options

Old cranky customer who is moving from an office (with a massive machine)  to home office

Thanks

Hello - I have a printer that HAD been working ok on a specific network port in the office.  It was on VLAN 2 here, and had a static IP.  I've had to add a second subnet to increase our number of available IP addresses, and desired to move this printer into the new, 2nd subnet.  this 2nd subnet is on VLAN 6, so I changed the VLAN for the port the printer is plugged in to, and it lost connectivity.  After fighting with the static assignment and trying DHCP on the port, I brought the printer to my office where I plugged it in to a 10/100 Netgear smart-switch that is on the new, 2nd subnet (VLAN 6).  the printer accepts an IP address when plugged in to this Netgear switch.  So I left the configuration set to DHCP on the printer, and moved it back to the original LAN jack.  I confirmed the VLAN setting on the wall port is correct (VLAN 6) and also made sure the speed and duplex setting is set to AUTO.  still no dice from this wall jack.  what could be wrong??  The printer is a HP Officejet X451dn, btw.  Thanks for your help.

I'm seeing several 41.0BB8 errors in the log history for a CP5225dn printer.  Some non-specific complaints from users.  I'm not seeing any reference to this specific error code.  Anyone know what this means?  Printer firmware up to date.  Thanks for any info.
