The printer does not print from the computer what to do

Comments 86

Hello! A couple of times I came across a similar one. What I did:

1.If it is possible to connect the printer to another PC (to check its performance).

2.If there are restore points at the time when the printer was working, then we roll back to that moment.

Lack of contact. we distort all the wires. And check if there are any bent.

disconnect the printer, remove all drivers (and even clean temporary files), reboot and see if there are any tails left from the printer (in devices.). Well, on a new one, we install the printer as for the first time.

Once the rollback of the system helped, the second time was replacing the wire and reinstalling the printer.

I cannot connect to another computer.

The system is clean, I reinstalled it yesterday, so I can’t rollback.

There is a contact, the printer works, it does not print only from the computer.

printer, does, print, computer

I wrote in the topic header that I removed the drivers and installed it again.

I read what you were doing. I just wrote the whole range of actions that I found in my time on the internet and did it myself.

That is, it turns out that the printer was previously connected to another system and worked there?

If so, is there a problem with the system? On which system did the printer work and which one did you install?

You understand that only 2 reasons can be to blame for the fact that the printer does not connect.

1 Iron (problems with the printer itself or wires

Or incompatibility with the system, or (if it is someone else’s assembly) something was disabled.

And by the way, Print Manager in services is enabled?

I worked on Win 7, after updating to Win 10 I also worked for a long time, or rather, I printed it from a computer. Now there is Win 10 downloaded from the torrent, I first checked the print manager, everything is included.

My printer wont print FIX! Simple fast and easy way to get your printer to print.

and the port generally works or replace the cord itself

Yura, the printer itself is working, I make copies, I cannot print only from the computer, I tried to insert it into another port.

I also have an epson, and he also makes photocopies, but sometimes he refused to print from a computer, so go for reasons)))

What did you do to be able to print from the computer? What helped you and on which system is 7-ke or 10-ke? I already did everything, only the monitor did not turn off and why turn it off at all.

I also have an epson, and Xerox also makes photocopies, this is a company, in which case you need to say an epson copy.

How to Fix All Printer Printing Issues In Windows PC (Easy)

a photocopy is performed without connecting a computer, it is not needed in such cases. But the scan to file itself is to start scanning or the scan button, right in the program))

which copies are you talking about, about scanning to a computer from a printer, you have three in one?

Yes, three in one, scans and photocopies are made on the printer itself, only I can not print.

On my 1607 both a computer and a laptop and before updating to a 7-ke, the printer printed everything itself, without the drivers I installed, I put my relatives on another seven, so, for extended service. After updating to 10, they remained in the system everything is still working as it should.

If you say that the PC sees the printer and, besides, you scan it on it, but printing is not possible, then of course you need to put his relatives and all that are needed for the entire printer. Before that, delete the old ones completely and reboot.

If, with correct installation, the reason is exactly the same, you may have to pay attention to the OS. Besides, you said that before that everything worked for a dozen different.

As a reliable option, try everything on another computer before that, so as not to demolish the new system ahead of time.

I already installed native drivers, I have a printer installation disk. You see the screenshots in the topic header, on the first one. there is no connection, when I try to connect it, the computer does not find it, the second screenshot. Something I’m missing, some action to connect it.

try to find on the office for dozens, if not, then take sevens from there.

when installing the driver for printing, the cable must be connected when the installation asks, then autosearch is performed, you did that?

Yurochka, of course)))) I’ve reinstalled so many times that I remembered it by heart)))

but how does it scan to a file on a computer.)))

I would not install any drivers, but connected it to the PC and waited for all the updates, I think the print would work a little later, since the PC scan sees.

That’s right, it scans normally, look in the old design, I inserted a screenshot. I don’t know what to do anymore, I’ve already tried everything.

Somewhere in the settings there is, add your printer, manually, not p: Lucy robbed.

I tried it, it is not added, okay Yura, thanks for the help, I will not do anything else, for now, I have deleted the printer, scanner, drivers from the computer, and in a few days I will try again, I’m already tired of him, to be honest))))

Lucy, I had a problem of the following nature; I was presented with an Asus Xonar Essence ST PCI sound card. I got up on the 7-ku easily. I installed it on the 8-ku in the same way. I didn’t go for a clean 10-ku. I was tormented for a couple of days. I tried different options. Installed through Vista firewood.

https://m.YouTube.com/watch?v=H83steLrlxQ here for seven, but try this way

I don’t think the reason is in the OS, but still, what a dozen?

read it here? Try everything step by step and leisurely

Turn off the printer and disconnect the USB cable. We look at the connectors in the computer and in the printer. If they are dirty. clean. An old toothbrush will probably come in handy here. We connect the cord. If “does not see”, we connect through another USB connector of the computer. If you have a stationary PC, we connect it to another connector on the back of the system unit. If the problem persists, we disconnect, for a while, other peripheral devices (webcam, scanner, monitor, adapters and other devices). We connect one printer and a mouse with a keyboard. If the problem persists, you need to connect the printing device with another USB cable

If the USB cable was damaged, the printer would not work at all.

READ  Can't see the HP laserjet 1010 printer

Llanti and in the passport for the printer there is support for 10? After all, you installed the drivers on 7-ku, then updated to 10-ku and the drivers were saved. And now, on a freshly installed 10, they may not get up correctly.

On my laptop on a 10-ke, they do not want to update the drivers on the video. stand up incorrectly.

Like this? Always write system requirements.

By the way, I experimented for the sake of interest. I have an HP 1010 printer (XP drivers only). Small dances with tambourines (we indicate another brand of printer) and it works great on a 7-ke. This 7 has been updated to 10 (still in the summer) and the printer works. So I tried to connect this printer to another PC with a 10-koy. but even dances with tambourines do not help yet, the system does not see it.

I don’t have another computer at home, only a laptop, I don’t want to carry the printer somewhere (to my relatives), I didn’t find where it says about the system requirements. I will look further, a solution to the problem.

Lyusya, Hello! With a delay, I wish you all Happy New Year! I, as a normal person, am in the hospital, where I met N.G. )))))) Do not worry and take your problem calmly, although it does not exist as such. It’s difficult for me to describe this situation to you now, but you are a Smart girl and you will find a problem.)))) Everything works for you and the printer is determined by the system. The only thing is that it is not one, but several printing devices. When you start printing, it enters the print mode and does not understand which of these devices you want to use. In the settings, look for the choice of a printing device. A dozen in the system of institutions have their own printer and it is determined First of all. I use exclusively Ipson, although I now have an Ipson darkroom, but this does not change anything. When you install a clean system, what I am talking about happens.

Hello Slava, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too, get well soon.

Yes, I am calm, the printer has not been printing from the computer for more than half a year, the fact of the matter is that the computer cannot identify the printer and does not find it when I want to print a document in the list only

the screenshots show that the system does not find the printer.

I was there))))

cool you wrapped it up, it means you don’t see it all the same and doesn’t print for half a year)))))))))

That’s right, I printed it on the seven, then it was updated to a dozen, for some time I could still print, and then everything))) I have already uninstalled the drivers several times, installed it again, several times did a complete reinstallation of the printer, I was already tired of it)) )) It’s just that sometimes you need to print a document. Now I have completely removed both the printer and the complete package to the printer from the computer again. I sit and think where to start again.

go into printers and devices and set it as default. Try this again

I uninstalled it, now I will reinstall it and try.

Yura, nothing has changed, the printer was on by default, installed the drivers for the printer for 10-ki, but still the system does not find it.

Llanti apparently your printer (found in the user manual) has drivers only for XP, Vista 7 is on its own disk. Here on the site there seems to be a 10-ku

Yes, I have already tried it, removed all installed drivers and installed for 10s, although when installing the printer, the program itself installed the latest drivers, look in the old design, I inserted screenshots.

I apologize, but according to the link that I gave, the file epson 514317eu.exe weighing 20.4 MB was downloaded from me and the beginning of the installation looks different (I did not install it until the end, because there is a different printer)

In 2015 you created the theme “The driver is not installed on the printer.” There, the method of installation on a completely clean system helped you, though there were 7, maybe here try this?

I reinstalled the system three days ago.

Yes, you wrote about this, it’s just that in that topic, you only got drivers on a completely clean one for 7-ku.

Sorry, the link is not inserted normally, so copy it into the address bar.

I have already installed the drivers for the printer, also version 1.53, nothing changes.

Well, there is some obvious problem with the system, somehow it does not install the drivers correctly.

And tell me please, if the device is removed and the driver too, restart and then connect the printer. The system detects that something is connected and looks for drivers?

Before this system, it was licensed and also did not print the printer.

When you connect the printer, without installing it, nothing happens.

Before that, you had 7 (judging by 2015) and it seems like there you connected it all the same.

Of course, I understand that the system is just installed and it’s a pity to demolish it, but I would have demolished it, put 7-ku (connected the printer) and updated to 10-ki (of course, there will be all 10 garbage.You have an ltb version now).

Thanks, but I don’t want another version of the dozen, I just got rid of unnecessary applications, maybe later, just for the sake of experiment, when there is time.

You can easily get rid of installed superfluous applications in 10-ke without reinstalling the OS. With CCleaner. At times removes.

on my old PC, the TV tuner worked fine, only on XP. But after the microscopic scanned old pieces of iron in my trash and offered updates to 10, the TV tuner worked like XP, even better. )))

not. I didn’t share it so that you would congratulate me)))

Licensed is not pirated, see in priority.))

In any case, so far it turns out, but I may not be. right.

10 does not allow installing “old”, even leucine drivers.

I did the same with disabling the touchpad. I worked on DOSe and after installing 7 also worked. After reinstallation (with disk formatting) on ​​10-ku. does not work. The driver (from the driver disc) is not installed. Writes that the latest drivers are already installed and do not need to be updated. The problem had to be solved only by disabling in the BIOS.

I have the drivers installed, you can see it in the screenshots above.

I have the drivers installed, you can see it in the screenshots above

READ  Brother Dcp T510w Printer Does Not Print

Yesterday I tried to connect my Samsung MFP to a new beech from the 10th. decided immediately. Working. Maybe Erik is right

What is right? But the scanner works and the printer is visible, the first screenshot is in the topic header. I don’t want to go back to the seven

Well yes. I overlooked something. Then one thing remains. still the wrong driver. well, or try to check the device on another PC (laptop).

Kolyan had a Corporate Party somehow installed, ask him more.

You can also connect a printer to a laptop?

It is forgivable for a teapot not to know this)))

Is that a teapot? And then who am I?

I told you that I was connecting the print to a laptop or to a PC, and you said there was nothing else to connect to.

And what system is on the laptop, updated license?

By the way. The scanner can work, and the driver for printing, it is separate and its system can simply accept it, we passed it.

We are already discussing the third day, I forgot)))) On the laptop, updated from the seven. So try to install it on the laptop. So I already tried to delete native drivers, downloaded from the Internet, especially for 10-ki, I still don’t see.

this is on the updated 10-ke licensed, did you do that?))

For now, just connect the printer to the laptop and to the network as expected, do not install anything. He himself must install or offer updates for the print.))

maybe in your system (nothing superfluous), printing the printer turned out to be superfluous)))))?

There are so many songs about construction that the thread has become lost. um. Sorry for the non-standard intro. But who knows, maybe my altyn will help find a solution.

I had a similar quirk. Khryusha was still on the car in his prime, then he bought a Canon scanner, which served me to the best of his modest strength.

Hryusha was replaced by a Seven. everything worked as expected. And I decided to change the car for a younger trotter.

Seven, 64-bit, tudy-syudy. worn and enjoyed life. Until it happened to me to connect my scanner.

Here history has come true, and endless surprise at the possibilities of the latest technologies. um.

In short, the newer machine flatly refused to notice my scanner. I changed everything that was possible. A lot of drivers were found, but they were all unsuccessful. Even my own firewood did not burn!

And only an accident helped me find one line in the vastness of the Network. most likely your scanner is incompatible with the system. (in the end it was)

Well, I didn’t want to throw out the scanner. device in very good condition and spirit.

I decided on the last move. Since the scanner worked on a Seven x86, on a Hryush x86, I set myself the task of cramming an 86-bit Seven into Virtualka in a 64-bit Seven.

No sooner said than done! But here I failed. It looks like there is something wrong with this salad for my scanner. He, as before, did not work

And only installation on Virtualka XRyushi 86-bit solved my such a nuisance.

I found the original XP x86 pro rus from the microsoftware, installed it, connected the scanner, which was also picked up by VirtualBox.

And native firewood came to taste without a word, and the software is 86-bit, and the device works like a refugee in a teahouse.

You don’t need much space for Virtualka on XP.

In the case of a printer that worked on 7-kex64, but refused on 10-kex64 (after the update), I think more.

But what she picked up there after the organ transplant, no one will tell anyone. And she grabbed (10) most likely just a little, which does not give life to a completely working periphery (printer). Who knows (except for the creators themselves) that they put it there to “facilitate” our activities.

P.S.: He who does not take risks does not drink champagne.

MISSING OR JAMMED PAPER

Usually, if the paper is jammed or out of paper, the printer will give an error while printing. By showing warning on screen or by LED indicators. But sometimes it doesn’t.

Paper jams are common. Many users choose low-quality stationery paper or use it multiple times. At the same time, it is not possible to evenly position the stack of sheets in the feed tray, they become electrified and a paper jam occurs, and the printer gives an error and refuses to print.

Often, a jammed sheet is immediately visible and must be carefully removed without jerking. If the device signals an error, but the sheet cannot be found during a cursory examination, you should remove the cartridge.

The visibility will be better and it will be easy to remove the jammed sheet

Wrong printer selected for printing

If the previous measure did not help, then you can try to change the driver in the printer properties on the “Advanced” tab, select another driver. Or completely remove the device driver, turn off and remove the USB cable. Then reboot. After loading the PC, turn on the printer, plug in the cable (preferably in another connector). After that, the installation wizard should appear, where you must specify the location of the driver. Didn’t appear. install the driver manually.

Is the device detected incorrectly, that is, it is visible in the system, but in Windows it is not identified by model? However, it is connected to the computer and turned on. You need to go to the device manager and open the line “IEEE 1284.4 devices”, then right-click. update the driver and specify the required.

All of the above steps should help if the printer is not printing a document. We hope the article turned out to be useful, especially since this is only the first publication on the subject of printers.

READ  Printer Does Not Print Word Documents

In Windows, several printers are available to the user. However, they are not always related to physical devices. Users are in a hurry to send a document to the virtual device and wonder why the printer does not start printing.

Set the physical printer as the default printing device to avoid the error. For this:

  • Opening Printer Management from the Settings Panel.
  • Call the context menu on the device icon.

Set the checkbox “Use as default”

If you use multiple printing devices, then you have to choose a printer for printing every time

Windows users sometimes have trouble printing documents due to documents hanging in the queue. It is rarely found among local users, but those who use network devices cannot often work with the printer because of this reason. The solution to the problem is one. emptying the print queue. In this case, you will have to cancel printing of all documents.

After completing these steps, the device starts working normally. But sometimes it is not enough to delete the print queue on the printer. You have to reboot the device physically to restore communication.

Sometimes the service responsible for the print queue hangs. In this case, you will have to clear the printer’s print queue in another way:

  • Opening service management from the administration section.
  • In the dialog box, find the service responsible for starting the print manager and double click on it.
  • Delete all files from the system32spoolprinters subdirectory in the Windows folder.
  • Start the service with the corresponding button.

Cartridge problem

A driver is a control utility. It organizes the interaction between Windows and the device. It is required for all equipment, both internal and external. Sometimes from problems with drivers, errors occur during operation.

Consider where driver problems occur:

  • Updating or reinstalling Windows.
  • Installing new hardware causing conflicts in the OS.
  • Software glitches.

However, the device can behave in different ways. For example, the problem occurs frequently if the printer prints blank sheets or if the print is canceled spontaneously.

First, you need to check the absence of conflicts in the OS. For this:

  • We go to the computer control panel.
  • Switching the display mode to small icons.

Here you need to check the absence of exclamation marks. They indicate problems with device management that causes various failures. If there are problems, you need to fix them by installing the appropriate drivers for the hardware.

Remove old drivers using OS tools or Driver Sweeper utility

  • We go to the official website of the manufacturer, indicate the model of the device and in the download section download the latest driver for the existing OS.
  • Install the downloaded package with drivers and utilities.

A common cause of printer failures is cartridge problems. Toner for the printer runs out at the wrong time and the device refuses to print the document or produces white sheets.

The first step is to stop printing on the printer and check the availability and level of toner or ink

This is done from the section for managing printing devices in the properties of the equipment.

It’s worth knowing. The OS uses the printer’s metrics to determine toner or ink level information. They may differ from the real ones, especially when using refilled or remanufactured cartridges.

There is another situation when the printer does not print well, although there is ink. If a string is used, it is worth cleaning the print head to remove dried ink.

But you shouldn’t blame everything on consumables. Physical damage to printing devices is possible. If the printer prints black pages, consider contacting a service center. Most likely, there is a breakdown inside the device and it will be difficult to fix it yourself.

Special attention should be paid to toners and ink used for refills. Poor quality consumables can lead to print problems and even hardware damage. In order not to wonder why the printer prints poorly after refueling, purchase consumables only from well-known companies from trusted sellers, since the market is full of fakes.
