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.

Hello, whenever I scan a large document using Paperport it has a small window that says "Nuance WIA" and it doesn't allow me to use other programs without jumping to the top. Very irritating when trying to process a word document. I have looked through many settings and can't seem to find a way to remove it. Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

We have a HP DeskJet 2540 Printer and  we always purchased HP originals cartridges.   However, we purchased a "refill" cartridge from the same store that we always purchase the originals.  Testing it, it display a screen that HP says it damage or  unrecognizable.

Question,

Is any additional steps to do at  the computer or the  printer in  order to  use "refills"?

Besides recommending us to always use originals HP ink cartridges, what advice you guys give regarding  "refills"?

Hi,

We are looking for a robust Virtual PDF printer, with the following features:
1. Create PDF files
2. Combine documents: Say for example we have separate documents that need saving as one PDF, the printer will act as a repository for the printed files, after which we can save to PDF. This is vital, as a lot of freebie pdf printers will print each document to a separate PDF file. Whilst we are aware that there is software to combine PDF files, we want to avoid this step.

Editing features are a plus but non essential:
1. Delete unwanted pages
2. Add watermarks
3. Print on electronic letterheads
4. remove graphics

We are specifically looking for this to be installed on a Remote Desktop server so that it is available for all users. Google has thrown up a lot of very expensive options. Does anyone have anything reasonable they can recommend?

Thanks!

We were upgraded to Windows 10 and Office 2016 last November. I spent some time trying to resolve this issue to no avail.

We have some Access reports that have check boxes with check marks. The check marks are not printing correctly to HP printers. We can send the same report to other (non HP) printers and they print correctly. Also, if we export the report to Adobe and then print to the HP printer, it prints correctly. The check mark in a box symbol from Word also prints correctly.

We have updated the drivers and firmware from HP, but it did not fix the issue.

I posted this same question to HP in January but got no response.

I have included an image of what the incorrect printing looks like.

Anybody else having this problem? Any suggestions to resolve?

Hello there,

I have a Zebra ZT410 and it is integrated with my Java application and for some reason sometimes the printer does not begin start printing. Is there a simple ZPL code or way to get an error message back from a Zebra printer to determine if the labels did not print successfully or that there was some kind of error?

cheers

My client has a MAC that is utilizing Parallels for  Windows 8.  THe IP address for the MAC is obviously the correct IP range, but the Windows IP Range is in a different IP Range. So the Windows environment cannot communicate with the printer since they are on different IP ranges.

Printer IP  192.168.254.25
MAC IP 192.168.254.10
Windows 8 in Parallels  IP 10.25.65.4

Hi,

I'm trying to share a printer via a VPN PPTP Connection. It was working well for a while (although it took quite a bot of work to get it going).

I couldn't share the printer via the computername as it is not recognized but the IP address works (ie. \\IP Address\Printer Share Name\)

So I got that connected properly. However upon disconnecting and reconnecting the VPN connection, the printer is unavailable and I get the error: "Operation could not be completed (error 0x00000bc4). No printers were found"

Through File Explorer I can connect to the IP address and see all the shared folders and printers. The shared folders I can access but none of the printers can connect/install. If It try to right-click > connect I get a:
"Windows cannot connect to printer Operation failed with error 0x00000002."

I tried reinstalling the printer manually (creating a port name) but I get an access denied error.

I checked the printer spooler and disabled the firewall but still can't share the printers.

Any help or troubleshooting idea would be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Lawrence

In trying to get scan to email working I was changing settings in the kyocera cs400ci printer and now locked myself out of the GUI as the SSL settings I set it to are wrong and browsers dont trust it.

I checked SSL and DES only (no 3DES or AES) and now all browsers say invalid/bad/unsupported ssl/tls etc.

Any ideas on how I can ignore any/all ssl warnings and still get to the gui?  force ssl is on so I cant use port80.

We have a dot matrix printer but can't figure out how to get it to print an image. The reason we use dot matrix printer is because we have stencil paper that is on a tractor roll. We use the dot matrix printer to create our stencils. Anyone know how to get a dot matrix printer to print out an image?

We have a networked HP LaserJet 400 M401n at work. The user says there's a delay when she prints. I noticed that out of the 128 MB of RAM it has (which is also the maximum it could ever have), only 62.74 MB is available. Maybe that's the cause. I don't know why only half the RAM is available. There are no pending print jobs. I've tried turning off the printer, unplugging it for ten seconds and then turning it back on. But that did not free up the other half of the memory.
     The user has a tablet connected to a docking station (she's running some version of Windows 8).

I am currently looking for a way to detect if the "Pause Printing" option in the "See What's Printing" window is checked in Windows.

I've searched high and low, and looked into the Win32 native printing API (winspool) to see if there was such a detection available, but to no avail.

Is there anyone who has experience with a successful implementation of this detection?

I'm looking for a solution in either C/C++, or C#.

Hi,
Please do you have an answer for my situation?

Print Server = Windows Server 2012 R2
Client Machines = Windows 7

I have already added our printer (Samsung) and I am deploying through GPO which works fine. However, when I have added the Fax Utiliy (Which sets up as a seperate device) this does not deploy. I tried to add the Fax Device manually on a client machine and I am prompted to install drivers. I click "install" and it fails with the error 0x000003e3. I believe this is why the GPO is unable to deploy the fax service.

The fax service is on the same IP as the printer object so I cannot add it using LPT1 with IP address as this is in use by the Printer function. I have to create a Samsung Network PC Fax port.
How can I configure this so that users are not prompted to install drivers that then fails with the error? I believe I will then be able to deploy through GPO to my users.

Many thanks
Pete

Hopefully a straight forward answer. We have had 22 printers recently installed and one of them has just recently started to get low on toner and as a result it is now emailing me every time a user prints. Is there a way to remove this notification? I have been through the settings on the printer and in uniflow but cant for the life of me find it.

Thanks

John
