Error 0x0000052e while connecting the printer. Windows cannot connect to the printer, we will solve it in a minute. Windows cannot connect to the printer, we can solve it in a minute

Good afternoon! Dear readers and guests of the Pyatilistnik.Org blog. Last time, I explained to you in detail how the problem is solved, with printing with the error “There is no print handler”, it is just one of a thousand that you may encounter. Today I will show you what to do if, when you try to install a printer, which one is local or on a terminal farm, you get an access error that your Windows operating system cannot connect to the printer, although you have all the rights. As usual, everything turns out to be very simple.

Possible Causes of Printer Access Error

Let me first describe my situation. There is a terminal farm on Windows Server, if someone does not know what it is, then this is a powerful server or a group of servers that users access from outside to work with applications installed on them, a very common option now in large and medium-sized companies. A user working on a terminal server tries to print a document, but his printer is either NOT visible at all, or when he tries to access him, he gives an error message:

And such a message can be with a local device, up to the latest version of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Possible reasons for what should be noted:

  • Check the rights to access the printer, it is relevant for corporate printers, where system administrators make it possible to use the device on the basis of groups, read more in the article about printer security and differentiation of rights.
  • Problem with device drivers, see below
  • Physical problem with the printer
  • The printer is offline (Be sure to check that the checkbox is not checked)
  • Problems with SNMP traffic (Try to disable it)

Kind of error

Let me give you the most common error codes in this situation, when Windows cannot connect to the printer. Access denied:

  • 0x00000002
  • 0x0000000a
  • 0x00000006
  • 0x00000057
  • 0x00004005
  • 0x0000007e
  • 0x000003eb
  • 0x00000214
  • 0x00000bcb

Solving the problem with connecting to the printer

There is only one reason and it lies in the digital signature of the printer drivers, or rather in the absence of this signature. If the drivers for the devices are signed by a certificate that is NOT valid from the point of view of Microsoft or without it at all, then it does not accept the driver, considering this a potential threat, as a result of which your device stops working. This is not a new problem, but after the next update KB3170455, the verification of the digital signature of drivers has tightened.

  • You can completely disable the digital signature verification of drivers, as I described it, take a look. In Windows 10 it is mandatory and toughened.
  • You can remove the KB3170455 update, but I think This is not the best option when it is much easier.
  • Editing the Windows Registry.

Since I mostly have a windows 10 operating system at work and from it I cannot connect to a printer on a terminal server, where there are drivers without a digital signature, so as not to make a large number of gestures and a bunch of reboots, I will put for printers that are experiencing problems one parameter to fix everything.

READ  Which button on the printer to scan

What do you do, you open the registry and follow this path, personally I use the register jump utility to quickly search the registry, this is done either locally, if the printer is connected via USB, or on the terminal server, if they are used.

In my case, this is the HP M1212, but there are a lot of such, Canon, Xerox and so on.

We find the PrinterDriverAttributes parameter there, by default there will be a value of 0, you need to change it to 1. Then you can safely restart the print service or the server itself.

This method works in 90 percent of cases, if it did not help you, then below I give additional methods for solving this problem.

Additional methods for solving errors 0x00000002, 0x0000000a, 0x00000006, 0x00000057

If your clients still cannot connect to terminal printers, then try clearing the registry branch:

In my case, I removed the servers from the print server.Make sure you have empty here. Then you can restart the server or print service.

Even in Windows 7, there is an error 0x0000007e “Windows cannot connect to the printer. The print handler does not exist” when trying to connect the same network printers, everything is solved by re-creating the print port. The port is some indication of where to look for your device.

Through the right click, go to the print properties, the “Ports” tab. Find the current port, and remove it, then click add.

Specify the standard TCP / IP port for the network printer.

This will open the add port wizard.

Specify the IP address or DNS name of the printer and the port name.

You can also check that on the “Access” tab there is a checkbox that Allows it. Your device is now accessible over the network. Try again to refer to it using the UNC path \ name of your print server (if any) printer name. For example, \ printserversumsungcolor

I also recommend trying the Print-Spooler-Repair-Tool diagnostic utility. This will help you fix error 0x0000007e and that the print handler does not exist. I hope this note was useful for you, if there are any other methods, then write them in the comments.

Error 0x00000709. Unable to complete the operation check the printer name

Good evening. Today I want to tell you about one error that you may encounter when you try to connect a printer to yourself, which is connected to a second computer via USB. Once a year, auditors come to our company with their computers and check the accounting and for their needs we allocate them a printer (HP 1505) which is connected via usb to one of their laptops. Today there was such a situation that when sending to print from the second laptop, the start of the departure, the error error 0x00000709

Unable to complete the operation (error 0x00000709). Check the printer name and Make sure the printer is connected to the network

I’ll tell you right away if you came to my site with questions:

  • What to do, I have error 0x00000709 when installing the printer over the network
  • Error 0x00000709 unable to set default printer
  • Printer error 0x00000709

Just scroll to the middle of the article, there will be a solution to your problem)

In my case, this error occurred in the following situation:

  • When the auditors came, I assigned one computer IP 192.168.100.10 to another 192.168.100.11
  • To a computer with IP 192.168.100.10, I connected the printer via USB and shared it
  • To a computer with IP 192.168.100.11, I typed \ 192.168.100.10 through the explorer and connected to the printer
  • And it all worked

Then a small incident happened and I had to change the IP address 192.168.100.10 to 192.168.100.15 and when a document was sent to print from the second computer, it naturally stopped cursing, because there was no such address and the printer could not establish a connection with it.

When we tried to reconnect the printer or go into its settings, we received the error Cannot complete the operation (error 0x00000709) completely removing the device from printers and faxes did not give any positive results.

Well, now let’s move on to the solution itself.

Error 0x00000709

To solve the printer error 0x00000709, you can use Several options (the one for which I decided it will be 1 option, if it does not help you, follow the rest)

Change the printer connection address

I must say right away that my mistake was in the Windows 10 operating system, but I don’t think that this can be fundamentally different from other systems.

  • Remove this printer from Printers and Faxes
  • Opening the explorer
  • And we connect to remote computers not by IP but by computer name (i.E. Not by \ ip but \ computer name)
  • After that, you will be asked to enter a password if you have increased security in Windows and after entering it into you, the printer will already work quietly.

As you understand, the only problem was that when I changed the IP address and logged in again, He could not, for some reason, make changes in the registry and later there was an error 0x00000709. But when we logged in by name, then everything went with a bang!

Updating and installing drivers

In my practice, there was still the same situation, but there it was solved by the fact that I connected the USB cable to the second computer and completely reinstalled the drivers, made sure that everything was working and printing, returned everything as it was, and then the network printer via USB started working.

The issue was driver conflicts.

Editing the registry

The last method, which everyone recommends, is editing through the registry

  • Press the WinR key combination
  • We enter regedit and press Enter
  • Open the registry branch HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionDevices
  • Right-click on Devices and select “Permissions” from the context menu.
  • Select the Restricted group and give it Full Control
  • Now select the printer you have installed from the list and remove it
  • Restart your computer

Since it was on computers where there was no access to me to record a video instruction for you, so I will post a video from someone else’s YouTube here

How to fix error 0x00000bcb when installing a printer?

During installation, the network printer returns error 0x00000bcb, which notifies that Windows is unable to connect to it over the local network.

What caused the error?

An attempt to print a document can be interrupted by an error for a number of reasons:

The print queue has failed. The malfunction can occur due to an interrupt when the spooler service was downloading a file to send to the printer. To solve it, run the troubleshooter.

The print manager has failed. Sometimes the service does not load correctly. To fix the problem, you need to restart it.

Access control problems. To solve, run the cacls.Exe utility from the command line.

Damage to the driver. The problem is due to inconsistent printer ports. To fix it, reinstall each port in the device manager.

Fixing the error using the troubleshooter

You can try to fix the error 0x00000bcb automatically. Take advantage of the built-in utility that can solve problems using predefined recovery tasks.

unable, start, printer, check

Go to the Troubleshoot section with ms-settings: troubleshoot. Launched from the command interpreter window (Win R).

On the right side of the window, click on Printer and then run the troubleshooter.

The utility will automatically check all components and try to identify the problem. If a solution to this problem is predefined in its settings, it will display the possible cause and prompt the user to fix it by clicking on the “Apply this fix” button.

After the utility completes, restart your computer and try to install the printer.

Service restart

If the service fails when starting and hangs in an undefined state, this will result in the 0x00000bcb error. You can return it to working condition by restarting.

Open the services using system search or the services.Msc command. Executed from the command interpreter window (Win R).

Find Print Manager in the list, Right click on it and go to Properties.

To disable, click on the “Stop” button, also check that the start type is set to “Automatic”.

After a complete stop, click on the “Start” button. Now repeat the action that previously caused the error 0x00000bcb and check if you managed to fix it 0x00000bcb.

Service recovery

Another prerequisite that leads to the crash 0x00000bcb is file corruption, which leads to disruption of the print manager components. So you will NOT be able to connect to any printer.

In the system search bar, type “cmd” and under the Found result click on “Run as administrator” or press the Win X combination and select Command Prompt (administrator).

In the console, run the following command to navigate to the location of the buffering service:
cd WindowsSystem32spool

After checking that you are in the directory, run the command:

Cacls.Exe PRINTERS / E / G administrator: C

Once done, restart your PC and check if the fix was successful.

Reinstalling the Driver and Printer Ports

Try to remove all ports to which the printer can be connected and then reinstall the driver.

Go to Device Manager using the system search or the devmgmt.Msc command. Launched from the Run window.

Open the “Print Queue” section and remove any devices present.

Then go to the USB Controllers section and remove ports that might be affected by the printing device. Restart your computer.

After restarting, Windows will automatically install a common set of drivers and ports for the printing device. Now try to print your document.

Error 0x00000709 when connecting a printer in Windows 10

One of the most annoying problems with a printer is that it refuses to configure itself on your computer. When it has configuration issues, one of the common errors it throws is 0x00000709. This happens if a configured default printer is already installed or Windows Media doesn’t want to configure a new printer at all. The error message reads like this:

Fix error 0x00000709 when connecting a printer in Windows 10

Run Printer Troubleshooter

A quick option is to download and run a special utility from Microsoft to fix printer problems. If the utility did not help or you DO NOT want to download it, then press the Win R key combination and enter msdt.Exe / id PrinterDiagnostic and follow the instructions on the screen.

Updating Printer Drivers

You should update your printer drivers. Press Win R and enter devmgmt.Msc to open the device manager. Next, find USB Controllers and click the arrow on the side to expand the list. Find the term “USB Composite Device” and update them all by right-clicking on them and choosing “Update Driver”. Restart your computer.

Use Registry Editor

Press Win R and type regedit to open the Registry Editor. Then follow the path:

In fact, you will see Device, Double click on it and in the “value” field write your printer name and click OK. A message will appear: “Unable to edit device: error writing new content.” Click OK again. The printer name can be viewed in the control panel “Control Panel \ Hardware and Sound \ Devices and Printers”. DO NOT close the registry but follow the step below.

Now right click on the Windows folder and select “permissions.”.

Very important! Find a limited group and remember, write down, take a picture of the default parameters before proceeding with further settings. Next, in the “Allow” column, check the “Full access” and “read” boxes. Now click “Apply” and then “OK”.

After that Right click on the file named UserSelectedDefault and select Rename, and rename it to your printer name. Restart your computer for the changes to take effect. Important! After you have added the printer, remember to revert the permissions you made in step 3 back to the defaults.
