Print error message when trying to print double sided output on wireless printer

Q: Print error message when trying to print double sided output on wireless printer

I have an HP C5280 printer running wirelessly via a TP Link wireless print server and D Link Di 624 wireless router. I can print successfully from either my desktop (which is connected direct to the D Link router) or either of my laptops (wireless). However, when I select the double-sided print option I get a print error message after re-inserting the odd number pages to print the other side of the paper and then click 'continue'.

Could I resolve this by connecting the printer both direct to the desktop using USB AND leaving it connected via the wireless TP Link print server? This would enable me to print double-sided from my desktop (as I did before when the printer was only connected via the USB desktop port).

Preferred Solution: Print error message when trying to print double sided output on wireless printer

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Probably, unless the USB connection is already used with the print server.

Many times I save worksheet in an Excel 2003 file the double-sided settings for printing, and I usally need to set it up repeatedly.

I there a default way to set up and especially by worksheet tabs?

A:Excel 2003 save double sided print output

You can save printer settings for most printers. If it is a work printer you might not be able to though. Within the "Print" (CTRL-P) properties dialog box try clicking on a button called "preferences." Usually somewhere in here you can save what they call a "profile" via a button. I hate to be so vague but each printer has different preferences.

How do I print double sided AND draft (low) quality on my HP OfficeJet Pro 6970?

I'm running into a frustrating situation where some of my users cannot print double sided, but the issue only happens from Office 2007 Pro.

The printer is a Xerox Phaser 6300.

From one of the affected laptops, I can print PDFs double sided, but when I try to print double sided from Word 2007, it only prints single sided even though 2x sided is obviously selected. Have tried other Word documents as well. I have also tried re-installing the printer drivers.

From a Server 2008R2 workstation I can print double sided to that printer using the same version of Word.

Is there some type of feature inside word or office that I'm not aware of that's disabling this feature?


A:Can't print double sided from Office 2007, can with all other apps

In Word, when you go to Office Orb (File) and choose Print, under Settings/Print One Sided, choose the drop down menu and choose Print on Both Sides.

Hi everyone. I'm not sure I'm posting in the correct area so please redirect me if necessary.

I have a 436 page pdf document I want to print. I have a HP DeskJet 3050 which does not have a duplex unit.

I wanted to print the document with 2 pages of the document on each side of A4 paper in booklet format. I selected Print, booklet, 2 pages per sheet and to print both sides. I was expecting a notification to turn the paper over and reload it into the printer after it had printed page 218. I was away from the printer when it reached page 218. When I returned there was no message asking me to turn over the paper.

What have I done wrong?

Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Hi, I just purchased an used computer with Windows 7Home Premium x64, this is an HP Slimline s5610f. The problem that I have is with a Brother HL 2040 series printer. It gave me a really hard time to install the drivers that I downloaded from the Brother website I kept getting a "0x00000057" error and "could not find suitable driver for this printer" error. Finally I decided to take the driver folders for this printer from my wife's computer and copied them to my computer and put them in the drivers repository under System32 and was able to install the printer after that with no problems.

The problem that I have right now is that the printer won't print, even though it told me that the driver installation was successful.

1-the print button is grayed out
2-If I click "printer properties" it tells me that the drivers have not been installed and asks if I want to install them.
3-If I install the drivers at this prompt it tells me that the drivers have been successfully installed.
4-Now it lets me access the printer properties but when I click "print test page" either nothing happens or it tells me that it failed to print and access is denied
5-If i close printer properties and try to access it again it tells me that the printer drivers have not been installed.

I get the same results with the printer connected locally trough USB or on another computer through the network.

hello dear sir
I have the problem with my printers in my office . the printers are HP laser jet 1300 and 2035.
my problems is : After I print a document , printer does not stop and printing white papers until I stop print service or power down the printer.
whenI push ctrl+p  to print ,
some files like shockwave.shd appears in this address." c:\windows\system 32\spooler\printers". and these files never vanished unless i stop the print spooler.
I know that  : The following briefly describes the purpose
of SPL, SHD, and TMP files:

SPL files are the actual spool (print job) files.

TMP files are usually associated with LPR print jobs.

SHD files provide information about which printer the print job was sent to and from
whom the print job came. An SHD file is a "shadow" file that keeps track of what logical printer a (same number) xxxxx.spl file goes to. It also contains the file's order in the queue, the user who sent the file to the printer, and other information.
These files are usually deleted unless the logical printer settings state otherwise.
but these files  never vanished and untils these file were removed manually ,
printer cant print at all.
please help me .

Hi there,
OK, here we go. I previously owned a Lexmark Z25 printer and up to a certain point, it was printing ok. Then it abruptly stopped printing any pages. It sounded as if it was getting the signal from the computer, but nothing would print. Rather than buy new cartridges, which would have cost more than a new printer, I bought a Dell 720. Now, the color prints fine, but I cannot get the black to print. The cartridges are just about full with only a small amount out of the black cartridge.

I read somewhere this week that it has something to do with the software. I believe there was a work-around, but for the life of me I can't remember where I saw it and I didn't bookmark the page! My other computer is WinXP, but I didn't like XP and the fact that I got hosed on the deal with only 128 RAM - never could track down the guy who sold it to me..Figures. Anyway, I now have a computer with WIN2K. I don't have the software for the Dell printer, but I downloaded the drivers from the Dell site. I do have the software for the Lexmark.

Lately, it seems I've seen Dell and Lexmark being spoken of in the same sentence - are they connected?? A LEXPPS.exe, which is Lexmark corporation, is "listening" according to my Comodo, leading me to believe that Dell and Lexmark have a lot to do with each other.

I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1

It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?

A:Print Screen button will print to the printer! how to stop

By definition the print screen function only sends the image to the clipboard so if the printer is also involved then something else -- some other software installed on your machine -- is the culprit here.

One way to find out what it is is by unhooking the printer and then watching the screen to see what error messages pop up when trying to use the print screen function.

When I try to print to my HP6940(?) wireless printer from my laptop I get the following message:
"The print spooler was unable to connnect to your printer. This can be caused by your printer being turned off, a cable being unplugged, or being connected to a VPN."

I recently tried TrendMicro PC Cillin. Just before the printing ceased I had a popup referencing the print spooler I think... I tried to see if I inadvertantly blocked my printer.

Friends, this is my first post.
My HP Photosmart 6510 B211a printer is set up correctly -- it prints a 'congratulations' sheet telling me so -- but so far I have failed to persuade it to print for me. It is wireless (no USB cable), so gets its jobs via the router (which is a British Telecom Home Hub 3, for broadband).
How do I tell Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) how to talk to it?! Does the pc need a driver -- I have no message asking me to install one? And if a driver is needed, which one?
I wish to use a software 'printer' (to wit: the admirable FinePrint or PDF Factory) which sends pages to print, informs me that that is what it has done -- but nothing actually prints. Playing around with 'defaults' has so far achieved nothing.
Ideas? Suggestions? Similar experience? I'm all eyes/ears.

Hey guys so I'm having an issue with one of my laptops not being able to print on my wireless network.

The printer in question is a CANON MX920.

We have 7 computers on the network and six of them print flawlessly.

We have varying operating systems: Windows Xp, windows 7 and Windows Vista.

Two of the laptops running windows 7 work flawlessly, one does not.

It is reading the printer on the network but when I try to print a test page or any picture/documents it goes to the queue and says "Printing" but the printer never prints anything. If it's in the queue on this laptop the other laptops don't see the item in the queue but they also cannot print anything because "Another device is using the printer" -- removing the item from the queue allows the other devices to print again.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer several times, turned off all security software, and disabled all firewalls and there has been no change. I have run windows update completely. The hardware device manager indicates that the "device is working properly"

This is extremely frustrating and I cannot seem to figure it out. 6 out of 7 devices work with the printer but my main laptop does not. Help please!

A:Wireless Printer won't print.

Go to the printer and print out a config page. Take note of the wireless IP address of the printer.
Go to Start/Devices and Printers click Add Printer. Choose Network Printer. Let it scan for your printers IP address. If it can't find it, then add it via the printers IP address. If this doesn't work, then try the following.
Go to Start/Devices and Printers. If the Canon printer is there, right click and Delete it.
Go to Start/Search and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. Uninstall any Canon software. Restart the computer. When the computer comes back up, download the latest driver from Canon: http://support-sg.canon-asia.com/con...100477901.html Choose to install with USB. Setup will tell you when to plug in the USB cable, During the install, once the USB cable is plugged in, do the install again this time for Wireless. That should find the printers IP address. Once that is found, then you can remove the USB cable and try to print Wirelessly.

Have a Canon MG6120 wireless multifunction printer. I rarely print anything from my laptop, but wanted to do that today. What I get is an error message that the printer is offline -- which it isn't; it's on. I tried going thru the setup on the printer, re-entering the SSID, and it said it was connected. Still same error that it's offline.

About a month ago, I did change the name of my router, but it never cause a problem with printing from my desktop, which I can still do. It's just the laptop that gets the "offline" error.

I've done my best to make sure my settings are right, but nothing works! One thing - when I got the new router, it couldn't handle my network name the way it had been before, so I changed it. Perhaps that messed something up - but I sure don't know how to know, nor how to fix it. Any ideas out there?!

Hey guys, been banging my head on the wall about this issue.

I recently purchased an Epson XP-205 Wi-Fi printer, and I set it up on my network and installed the drivers to my laptop, initially I could print over the network, but since a restart I can't. I have tried an uninstall and reinstall of the printer, but to no avail and if it matters, I'm running W7 64-bit.

I've ensured the printing programs are part of my firewall exclusion rules, and I can access the printers set up page via, also as expected, the printer is "pingable". On top of this my Android tablet is able to send things to the printer, so I'm sure it is an issue with my laptop.

Hey there

I've once again encountered this problem with my Canon PIXMA MP620 printer/scanner: when using it wirelessly, it can't print. According to 'Devices And Printers', it's offline and therefore most programs I use in Windows 8.1 claim it can't print.

However, using Canon's program 'MP Navigator', it can scan from the printer without any problems. I can scan from the computer to the printer and the other way around. Therefore I'm suspecting that the problems lies with Windows 8.1 and not the printer. The connection is obviously there but Windows doesn't seem to think so.

Last time I reinstalled everything but there must be an easier way to fix this problem. I can't find the exact same problem anywhere else online, I can't find a solution in the printer's manual, Windows doesn't give me anything when I try to troubleshoot the printer in question, and Canon's own 'Network IJ Tool' can find the printer but says it's doesn't work without clarifying why.

I want to know if the ability to print from anywhere in the world to a printer. My initial setup i was thinking of was this:

The laptop pulls up the IP address of a wireless print server which is connected to a wireless router (where it gets its internet from). The person using the wireless laptop gets the IP address of the print server, some how configures the computer to print to THAT IP address, and the paper should come out of the printer. Correct? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

P.S. it would be nice if i could be told how much this will cost.

Can I still print to the wireless printer if I disconnect the Homegroup?

Would removing the Homegroup cause internet connection problems?

Please advise. Thanks.

A:Can I Still Print to Wireless Printer if I Disconnect The Homegroup?

Sure, you could still share it.

To print to it from a computer you would simply open up the "Devices and Printers" page in explorer, click "Add a Printer" then the network/Bluetooth printer option. It may take a few seconds for your computer to discover your printer on the network but it should be there.

Alternatively, you could add the printer by clicking the "my printer isn't listed" button and entering the DNS name or IP address of the printer if it has a static IP. Or you could open up the "Network" page of explorer and install it from there. As you can see, you have options outside of Homegroup, albeit they may involve a few more steps.

Best of luck, be sure to post back your success or if you need additional help

And no, the homegroup has nothing to do with internet access

How about telling us why not? Because the printer is not available in each browser's list of printers? Because you get an error message? Because the job just sits in the printer queue? ...?

Hi all,

Please pardon if this has already been addressed... I tried to find threads that answered my question, but was not too successful.

I am trying to set up my husband's office so his laptop can print wirelessly to his printer via a print server. Right now, each time he wants to print he attaches the printer via the usb cable. This works ok, but is kind of a pain since the cable has to run across the room. Also, each time he unplugs and plugs, his laptop reinstalls the printer giving him countless copies of the same printer in the printer folder. (Another issue I've never bothered to fix.)

So, I've got the print server (which also happens to be a router) hooked up to the printer, and the laptop (with built-in wireless) detected the router/server and connected to it like a network without any problems. I thought all I'd have to do was go to add printer, detect it through the server, and install it. But though the computer is connected (wirelessely) to the server, it doesn't see the printer.

Was I totally crazy when I thought the print server would allow printing without the printer being connected to a PC? Can you actually just plug a printer into a wireless server and then print from your computer? Or perhaps because this is also a router, it must be attached to a computer?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. If you can explain how to do it, I'm sure I'd be able to do it.

Recently got an HP Officejet Pro 8710 printer which is wireless enabled. From my ThinkPad E545, Firefox will not print to it. It appears to send the page off to the printer. The print queue appears but there are no documents. It makes no difference what I'm printing - an email, a page from a newspaper/newsclip, or a product description from a retailer. No error messages are produced. I can print just fine from other browsers - Microsoft IE or Microsoft Edge. I can print fine from locally installed apps like MS Office. Am running a Thinkpad E545 with Windows 10 installed. Windows 10 is current on all updates. I've run a full Lenovo hardware scan/diagnostic and the laptop came up clean. I've checked Lenovo support and no similar problems have been reported either by users or support team.  Have installed all HP drivers for new printer. Am running current version (49.0.2) of Firefox. I can print to the wireless printer from Firefox running on a Surface Pro with Windows 10. So, it's possible that the problem may be specific to ThinkPads.I would really appreciate some help here. Thanks.

Hi All

I am having problems printing from a wireless laptop.

I have a desktop PC which is connected to an HP Photosmart 1000 printer and is running Window XP SP2

My desktop has a USB Wireless dongle to enable connection to my wifes wireless laptop also running Windows XP SP2.

I have set up the file and printer sharing and can access the folders I have permitted access to.

I have enabled the printer sharing.

On the laptop I can add the printer via the network printer option and the laptop can see the desktop printer.

The only problem is when I try to print the printer fails to print anything.

I am able to print from the desktop but that is all.

Has anyone else had this problem?? or can anyone help sole this issue

Many Thanks
