Printer says "offline" and "Mismatch Paper Size/Type

Q: Printer says "offline" and "Mismatch Paper Size/Type

There is a Lanier LD117 Printer recently installed in the office, which is connected to the network, to be used by the two computers in the office (both are Windows 7 equipped). However, the printer shows "offline" on the computers when the printer
is on.
Secondly, the printer says there is a paper type/size mismatch. After changing the printer (and the computer) settings to the correct ones, the printer still says its mismatched. And the confusing thing is if you select FormFeed manually on the printer,
the documents that are waiting will print anyways, even though it says it cant and even though the computers say its offline.

How can I reset the system so the documents will print automatically upon command via the two computers?

I have a new printer for my Vista, the Dell v725w. However, it will not print. My problem is with the Vista as the printer can scan and make copies. I just for whatever reason cannot print. Whenever I click "Use Printer Offline" to turn the on the printer online, instead it states "Printer status Offline-Offline". It says "offline" twice! When I click again, it goes back to "Use Printer Offline". I cannot turn the printer back online as "Use Printer Online" won't show back up! I also get a message saying that it is a communication error.

On a side note, does the "WI-fi" and "Ethernet" icons on the v725w need to light up to indicate that the printer is communication with the Vista desktop? If so, that could be my problem and I don't know how to turn on Wi-Fi/Ethernet" to fix the communication.

I hope someone can help. Thanks.

I am recently encountering the following message whenever I try to print something on either of my 2 printers. I am using win98. I have 2 different printers. I tried to remove the printers and then reinstall them but this did not help. When I try to do the test page I get the above message telling me to add paper. I cannot think of anything that I did recently to cause this kind of problem. I have tried to reinstall windows but that did not help. After I did that Norton virus protection told me that it noted that something had changed in my partitioning and that it may be cause by either a virus or by me installing windows. I chose to ignore this problem. No virus was found. Several weeks ago I did have a warning of a worm virus which Norton Quaranteened. If I cannot figure out what is going on, I'll simply format and begin again. Any ideas?

One feature I really liked in XP was the ability to look in a folder through My Computer and sort the files by extension. For example if I wanted to get all .jpg files to one side of the folder as I looked for a file, I could click View, Arrange Icons By, Type and make that happen. I don't see that feature in Windows 7. I'm using W7Pro and can't find that or a similar feature anywhere. Is it here and I just haven't found it? TIA

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

Hi all,

Can you help me? I got a new Linksys router this week and it works beautifully. I have a wireless printer that worked great with the old router -- no problems. Now it won't work and when I click on it in the Printer window in the Control Panel, it says it's "offline". The network light is on, as is the blue wireless light. So, it should work, yes? Why isn't it??

Wondering if someone can help me with something. I just got a new Brother 7840w Printer. It installs and works fine with the USB connection. The wireless setup also works fine, the test page prints fine. However, when I try to print something wirelessly I get an "offline" error.

I have read and run all the troubleshooting tips I could and from what I can tell, everything is set up fine and should be working correctly. The computer and the printer are communicating. The network is setup correctly and the IP address is set up as static. I have the latest drivers and firmware for the printer.

I did read that there were some problems with Mac OS 10.5.5 and brother 2170w (which is the old printer I had) and that they had been worked out. I was never able to print wirelessly with the 2170 either I just used the USB. I am currently running Mac Os 10.5.8. I was hoping getting the new printer would solve my problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:Printer showing "offline" printing wireless with Mac OS

This is not for Mac but might give you some clues.


Do you have to change the Brother IP from Static to use an IP address on your LAN (Network)?

Also if you are using the same Mac with the USB settings try removing/uninstalling the Brother software completely and disconnect the USB.

Then try installing again and select Wireless connection as having both USB and Wireless Printer setup might be confusing your Mac?

I am running Windows XP SP3, fully updated, on an Acer lap top PC.

I have several folders full of .mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. To do this I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

The two new columns appear, but the format of the "Duration" column appears to be "hours:minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03" for most .mp3's, when what I want to see is 'hours:minutes:seconds", e.g. "00:03:45".

This also happens for video files (.avi files), e.g. all my episodes of "Heroes" (sad, I know) have a duration of "00:42" instead of "00:42:xx".

Here are two pictures showing the problem with the .mp3's. The first is of Explorer showing the Duration as "Hours:Minutes":

The second picture is of the properties window of the first .mp3 in the list above:

I copied some .mp3 files to another (old) PC on my home network, and it displayed the duration field correctly:

Also, the properties window correctly shows the duration also:

Hello All,

I started a few weeks ago on the PowerShell programing and I got my answer from here only. So am putting up the error that I am getting now to get some help again.

Scenario : I wrote a script that checks a Folder on a server and counts the number of files in it.Then when it finds the resulting number to be more then a specific value(threshold) it sends up a mail to the required alias. To break it all along the portion to send a mail is generated through DBmail using another .PS1 file.

In the PS1 file containing the main checking of number of files I am trying to pass 2 parameters :

1. Folder path on the server
2. the Threshold value of number of files

Now when I created a job to run this powershell script as :

& "C:\PowerShell\Power.PS1" \\XXXX\\c$\Documents and Settings\ABC\Local Settings\Temp 10

IT fails with the error :

A job step received an error at line 1 in a PowerShell script. The corresponding line is '& "C:\PowerShell\Power.ps1" \\XXXX\\c$\Documents and Settings\ABC\Local Settings\Temp 10'. Correct the script and reschedule the job. The error information returned by PowerShell is: 'Cannot convert value "and" to type "System.Int32". Error: "Input string was not in a correct format." '. Process Exit Code -1. The step failed.

I really can not move forward on this.

Please help.

A:PowerShell issue ('Cannot convert value "and" to type "System.Int32")

Just to add for reference Below is the code for the Power.Ps1 file that I have used :

# check that the directory exists.
$does_directory_exist = (Test-Path $directory_string)

# if it does, then continue

# Check for the number of files on the directory

# If number of files exceeds the limit, send mail to notify

My sister's printer is connected with a wireless network to her office computer. It suddenly, and without any provocation that she can see, has went "offline" and now refuses to print at all. Can't get it out of "offline." I've tried the services > print spool restart, checked the queue (to make sure nothing was preventing it from printing) unplugged it, plugged it back in, rebooted the computer, ......we have not uninstalled and reinstalled the software yet, because she can't find her CD. So......aside from uninstalling/reinstalling, does anyone have any ideas of what to try? I'm assuming this is a network problem.....

The only thing that has changed between when it worked and when it didn't, is that she lent her laptop (also on the network) to our niece for college because hers just blew up (literally....sparks, smoke, everything). But that being "out" of the network shouldn't cause the problem, I wouldn't think.

I have XP, and a Samsung laser printer. I made that the default printer. At first it worked. Now, it says it is "offline," and several "copies" of the printer icon show up under "printers," called Samsung (copy 1), etc. When I tell it to print a document, it goes in the queue and stays there--no printing!
Can someone tell me why copies of the printer icon proliferate, and why it won't print?


A:New PC, printer shown as "offline"

Remove all those printers copies and keep the first that doesn't have (copyX) next to it. Now you need to purge the print spooler buffer. To do this you need to click on start, then on run: Type: services.msc

scroll down for the print spooler once you find this you just need to right click on it then click on restart. That's it.

Try to print something again..

If that doesn't work then uninstall the driver. Then unplug the printer. Reboot the system. Then install the driver again. Nex connect the printer.

I have a Canon i850 printer which I think is just great. Never a problem, not even one paper jam in the year I've had it.

However, tonight whenever I attempt to print a page from the Net I get the following message: PRINTER IS OFFLINE. I don't understand this at all since I am online and my printer is both plugged in and turned on! I have gotten this PRINTER IS OFFLINE before on a number of occasions, but that was when I really was offline. All I had to do then was depress the button and I was ready to print.

I have been having virus problems in recent days, but I didn't think that would affect my printer's functions. However, I'm thinking maybe what I'm experiencing IS a virus-related problem, especially since I can't make sense of it otherwise. Can someone please tell me what is going on?!! (I don't find any help at all in the Troubleshooting section.)

Thank you,

A:Why do I get a "PRINTER IS OFFLINE" message?

The fact that the printer says it's offline has nothing to do with whether or not you are online (internet) or offline. It just can't communicate with the printer. Have you tried power cycling the printer and your pc?
Assuming it's USB, have you, by chance, unplugged in and replugged in into a different usb port?

My office just upgraded, and I can no longer use Windows XP. On this system, I was able to add a separate taskbar to facilitate quick access to commonly-browsed folder locations on our vast network, and another one expedited the launching of useful programs and lists. Each task on each taskbar was represented with a big custom icon to save eye strain. I had them installed in opposite vertical margins, and they were set on auto-hide to keep them out of the way when not being used. Just move your mouse pointer to the left or right margin, and BAM! Sorry for the cliche, but I really got used to the convenience of what I had set up, and I just don't think I can be as efficient without anything comparable.

Now there appears to be nothing comparable in the Windows 7 GUI, and it's making me sick with rage! I see only the option to put a "toolbar" on an existing "taskbar", and no option to create any additional taskbars! This cramps up your one-and-only taskbar, plus the tiny toolbar access buttons require way too much precision for anything that's supposed to be quick. When you've figured out how to bring up that ridiculous button, the list that it yields is small enough to cause painful eyestrain - nothing efficient, much less cool about this at all! I have seen customization options in other OS GUIs that may have resolved some of these issues, but I see none such in W7.

I have someone who works from home to connect to an office computer to access a database. Now, she wants to print out of her printer from home from the program she is using. She connects via VNC on a dial-up. Now the only thing I had in mind was to some how network her printer to be available to an outside source from home and add it as a shared printer on the office computer. Is this possible with a dial-ip and also not being on the same network? I wonder if I could do it through HTTP or something similiar?

help me?

A:"fsutil file setshortname "Program Files" PROGRA~1"=>"Error:Access is denied."

Hi TimFF,
This might be related with the UAC settings, check this thread:
give full permission for the users in program
files folder
The steps in the above thread is not recommended.
For the short name usage, we may consider to create a directory-junction from
PROGRA~1 to C:\Program Files:
With the following commands:
mklink /J "C:\PROGRA~1" "C:\Program Files"

I double-click and get "search" instead of "open"--only when I click a disk, like Hard Drive C: or Floppy A: or CD F: and so on.

It didn't used to do this, so I must've inadvertently changed some setting somewhere, but darned if I can find it now.

Any ideas?

It seems that no matter how I set this, after the next start-up it reverts to "15 minutes".  What registry key controls this?

Before I continue, I'd like to say that I signed up just to post about this problem and if you mention any technology terminology to me, I won't know what you're talking about.

So I have this problem with either my printer or my computer (I think it's the latter) and it's driving me crazy. I cannot freaking do my life without a printer! I have a Mac laptop, I don't know what kind (Lion?) and I don't think it matters anyway. Every time try to print something, when I open up the printer queue it says, "The printer is offline." It's not paused.
It's done this to 3 perfectly operating printers and they only not work in this house. I use printers using USB. I've also tried to print them in 3 different laptops (including mine) and it does the same thing. What's going on?

A:"The printer is offline"

I have a HP 5650 deskjet printer that has been working fine up until I installed Window Washer!! I think it might have something to do with the PlugnPlay features...(unfortunately I'm a little new to this!!)
I probably should not have done this but, I uninstalled the program and then tried reinstalling it with NO SUCH LUCK!!
I get an "INSTALLATION ERROR" at the final stage of the installation!!


Sorry, I may have been a little UNCLEAR!!
I uninstalled then tried to reinstall the HP software to no avail!!

I just bought a new laptop which has 2 usb ports but no parallel port (I believe this is probably the standard configuration now). I have an HP722c that I'd like to print to which does not have a usb port. Is there a "cheap" way (an adapter of some sort) for me to print to this printer with the laptop.


A:Printing to a "parallel only" printer with a "usb only" laptop
