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.

Experts,

Not sure why I am stumbling here so much but, I need to compare a DateTime field within my database to see if the dates stored in this column are between two user submitted Unix Timestamps.

Example (not working): SELECT * FROM registration WHERE checkin BETWEEN FROM_UNIXTIME('".$_POST['from']."') AND FROM_UNIXTIME('".$_POST['to']."') AND `appointment`=1 AND `deleted` IS NULL ORDER BY checkin ASC;

When attempting to validate by printing my query to the screen, I get the following which seems correct: SELECT * FROM registration WHERE checkin BETWEEN FROM_UNIXTIME('1571011200000') AND FROM_UNIXTIME('1571616000000') AND `appointment`=1 AND `deleted` IS NULL ORDER BY checkin ASC;

I'm not receiving any syntax errors but, not sure I am employing the "FROM UNIXTIME()" function properly???

Cheers!

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

        I am needing to scan a certificate and save it for editing purposes.  Specifically speaking, I have a name on a certificate that has been misspelled and in need of correction.  

        With respect to tools, I have an HP ENVY Photo 6255, a laptop running Windows 10, and Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.  If more information is needed, please feel free to let me know and it will be provided upon request.

         Thank you

Hi,

One of the printers in our office network would get disconnected every now and then. It is my boss's printer, only used by him. It would be working fine and not working all of a sudden. I had to remove the printer and rejoin it into the network. I use wire connection.

Any ideas? thanks

Hi,

Some of the printers I've been sharing to my users using GPO are not visible in the 'printer section' of the Control Panel. But I can see them using 'get-printer' in Powershell. And they're visible in the printer dialogue of programs like Word or Excel.

But since they're not visible in the Control Panel I had to use Powershell to make one of them the default printer.

Anyone know why this is happening?

Experts, I have a printer mapping script that installs printers based on the user's group membership (due to the 50+ printers we have in this office, I can't use group policies).

@echo off
setlocal

setlocal enabledelayedexpansion

echo Connecting Printers...
set PriorityDefaultPrinterSet=0
for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=-." %%a in ('n:\ifmember.exe /list ^| find /i "group %UserDomain%\Prt-" ^| sort') do (
  echo Connecting %%b %%c
  rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /q /n\\w2k8ps01\%%b
  if not "!PriorityDefaultPrinterSet!" == "0" goto not_def
	echo ...Setting as default printer
	rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /y /n\\w2k8ps01\%%b
:not_def
  if /i "%%c"=="D" set PriorityDefaultPrinterSet=1
)

:end

As we migrate the users from Windows 7 to Windows 10, I need to change this script to include the new print server (w2k16ps01).  I tried just changing the server name in the script but the printers aren't installing in our testing.

Can someone look at this script and verify if it will run on Windows 10 or if there is different verbiage that I need to include?

Thanks Experts.

Is there an issue with any of the new W10 updates causing printer issues?

A number of clients have been having issues with the print spool service not starting or printers loosing the driver and needing to be re-added

I am trying to find a way to add sequential bates stamping on a Xerox Atalink C8045 multi function device.

I already understand how to use the bates stamp feature when copying a document and clicking on the Annotations feature and from there click on bates stamp.  

The problem with this is the numbering always starts with 1.  The requirement is for the machine to remember the last number used. The real end goal is to be able to add a unique number to every page printed at the bottom of the page.  I know the machine keeps track of how many copies are printed so this data is stored somewhere and that data would be a good option to print on every page. Either there is a way to do this already in place that I am not finding or there is a way to do this through programming.  Either option will work as long as the end result is to have a unique number printed on every page.

I am having trouble getting the print functions on a machine to work. The print spooler keeps crashing. I have stopped the print spooler removed all of the network printers. Deleted everything in the system32 PRINTER and DRIVER folders, and restarted the machine. After the restart I am able to add a network printer before it crashes again and i cant add any more and I cant make any changes to the one I added. It will not print anything after adding it again. I'm still hoping that a windows version update will help with the problem.

Have an issue with Excel not printing to a Sharp MX-2615 N. The sheet will go through the queue and then *poof* it's gone.
Environment:
Windows 10 Pro with latest updates
Excel 2016 (Office 365) with latest updates
Installed latest print driver for the Sharp
Printer is accessed via IP address.
All other applications print with no issue.

Have tried the driver 'Auto Configuration' fix and to be honest many other settings.....

Anyone have an idea as to what could be going on?

Thanks,

When imaging WIN 10 devices I'd like to add the printers.  We know what printers need to be added as we pull the device from production, and I'd like to try to use the Print Management Export feature to export from one device and move it to the new device.

Are there any downsides to using this method?  The devices we're pulling are WIN 7 and there is a print server in our environment.

The devices are laptops or workstations, no servers.

Thanks.

How do I fix a situation where all the printer ports are greyed out?

The customer has a Win10 Home PC and an HP OfficeJet Pro 6970 that has been working fine since she bought it a few months ago.  But ever since she changed the ink cartridge it won't print from Quickbooks, giving an error about a problem with the printer port USB001.  Now when I look at properties and the ports tab I see they are all greyed out.

I am remote from her office today, but I did a "remove device" and rebooted, but the printer still appears on the device list--maybe because I did not have her disconnect the cable before the reboot??  I tried to reinstall the HP software, but does not give me that option, instead only offering to connect to a different device or add more features.

Any ideas what is going on, and what to try?  TIA

The Windows 10 printers are present in Settings | Devices and Printers.
In Word, Excel and Adobe Reader, etc, the printers do not appear.  The Print dialog states "No Printers Installed".

KB4524148 broke Windows print spooler!  This update was supposed to fix printing issues (Which this computer did not have).  Windows 10 v1809.

FYI, removing that update does fix the problem.  Suspended updates for 35 days also.  So printing works, but expecting more troubles to come with over 500 Windows computers to manage.

When I open ANY office 365 application and goto file --- print,  I get the erro message.  I can close it and all is well, but the user said that every once in awhile he gets the issue of trying to change from the default printer to another printer and it won't let him.  Very odd.  Not sure if it has anything to do with the error message attached.  He says the problem with switching printers only occurrs every 10 prints or so.

I'm having serious problems to make my kiosk printer (Nippon Primex NP-VK30) work correctly under Ubuntu 19.04.
The manufacturer provides no support for Ubuntu, but I've found on Github a very simple library made in Python.
I attached the Python files to this topic.

I tried to launch "test.py" and my printer worked fine!

Since I need to print some text strings from my C/C++ application, I would like to translate the python code into C/C++ code so I can easily import it in my original application.

Unfortunately, I'm just a beginner and I never coded in Python.
Can you help me, please?

Thank you!

This is the code for test.py:

#!/usr/bin/python
from w2k203dpi import Printer

p = Printer()

p.println('test')

p.bold(True)
p.println('test')
p.bold(False)

p.underline(True)
p.println('test')
p.underline(False)

p.qrcode('test')

p.fullcut()

Open in new window


This is the code for the class file:

class Printer:

    def __init__(self):
        DEVPATH = '/dev/usb/lp0'
        self.f = open(DEVPATH, 'w')
        self.mode = 0x00

    def raw(self, data):
        for i in data:
           self.f.write(i)
        self.f.flush()

    def esc(self, data):
        self.raw('\x1b' + data)

    def font(self, value):
        if value:
            self.mode |= (1 << 0)
        else:
            self.mode &= ~(1 << 0)
        self.esc('!' + chr(self.mode))

    def bold(self, value):
        if value:
            self.mode |= (1 << 3)
        else:

Guys,
I have a client with a Ricoh MP C5503 that I am trying to set up with scan-to-email. Because the Ricoh only provides SSL encryption, I set up a free Juno email account dedicated to the printer.  So we are on the same page, here's where I put what:
Device Management > Configuration
Under 'Device Settings' section
Click: Email
-Administrator E-mail address: (email@juno.com)
-SMTP Server Name: smtp.juno.com
-SMTP Port Number: 465
-SMTP Authentication: On
  -SMTP Email Address: (email)@juno.com
  -SMTP User Name: (email)@juno.com
  -SMTP Password: (password)
  -SMTP Authentication: Auto-select

I also tried:
Under 'Device Settings' section
Click: Email
-Administrator E-mail address: (email@juno.com)
-SMTP Server Name: smtp.juno.com
-SMTP Port Number: 25
-SMTP Authentication: Off
  -SMTP Email Address: (email)@juno.com
  -SMTP User Name: (email)@juno.com
  -SMTP Password: (password)
  -SMTP Authentication: Auto-select

My client is using Google Fibre as their ISP. One of my tech friends who works a Ricoh service says the issue is Google Fibre blocks access to any DNS other than the local IP pointing to the Google Fibre Gateway. I confirmed this as I set up the Ricoh with:
DNS 1: 192.168.1.1 (the Google Fibre Gateway) - Test Successful
DNS 2: 8.8.8.8 - Test Unsuccessful
Or DNS 2: 1.1.1.1 (Cloud Flare) - Test Unsuccessful
Or DNS 2: 1.0.0.1 (Cloud Flare) - Test Unsuccessful
He says that if I can figure out what DNS server Google Fibre is …

I have a web-based application built for a shop intranet which has the requirement for users to be able to print to local printers installed on the web-server or network printers on the LAN (whichever is easier). The clients need to be able to produce receiving and shipping tickets from the app to the printers in those departments, so; server-side printing.

I have tried an number of approaches to this using PHP shell functions and incorporating printhtml.exe from http://www.printhtml.com/ but with no success.
Research online shows an old php_printer dll but it will not load as an extension in v5.4. I know this is possible, at least in theory, but I am stuck.
Can anyone suggest a solution? Thanks.

I have a brother HL-L62000W.  When it prints, it crashes the computer.  This happened on Windows 7, then I tried it on a windows 10 machine with the same results.

I did some quick searching and one possibility is the USB port overloading but it is doing this on 2 different computers.

We have a Kyocera taskalfa copier/printer that takes a long time for the pages to come out for some of the jobs. I’m beginning to think it’s because of memory because we did not always have this problem. Does it sound like I should increase the memory?

Hello Everyone.  We are currently moving our customer away from an on prem Fax solution to a cloud based solution.   They have about 80 workstations and the old fax printer is installed on all of the users profiles.   I have removed the fax printers from the server mappings so they are no longer able to access them remotely.   Can someone provide me with a powershell script that I can deploy from our RMM tool that will delete just that one printer from the machines entirely without affecting any other printer?  Please let me know.   They have a mix of Windows 10 and Windows 7 Pro machines so I would need a power shell script for both platforms.

I found this link.   Can this be done with the same command for Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro?
