[SOLVED] Windows 7 & Network Printer Issue

Q: [SOLVED] Windows 7 & Network Printer Issue

I have a 2 Zebra Label Printers (2 models) that are shared printers on two separate computers (both with XP) on our networked that are pushed out to all the other computers on the network via group policy on/print management on the server (Server 2003). One of these printers will push out to the Windows 7 machine but the other one will not. If you try to add it manually on the Windows 7 machine the printer is listed as one of the network printers however it will error, saying it cannot make a connection with an error code of 0x0000007a. Looking in Print Management on the server the printer that does push out is on the list of printers and the that does not push out is not, even though it is listed in the list of printers under printers and faxes. This printer has added to deploy under group policy though and still does not push out to the Windows 7 machines but will to all our XP machines. Anyone have a solution on how to remedy the problem?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: [SOLVED] Windows 7 & Network Printer Issue

Are you specifically using a driver designed for Windows 7 on the Win7 machines? By default, the print server will push out the driver installed to the client when first connected, so if the driver being used is for XP or 2003, it may not work properly under Win7. That error message means "ERROR_INSUFFICIENT_BUFFER", which would indicate a driver issue indeed.

I have ten computers connected to an ethernet switch, and they were all configured to print via an HP Jetdirect 500X printer switch connected through the ethernet switch as well. Recently the router was replaced and now I cannot print on any computer. The router is a Netgear Wireless-G WGR614 (but it is not being used in a wireless application). Please tell me what I need to do to bring back printing capability. The printer is an HP 930C, by the way. Thank you.

I had a problem with my HP printer not scanning via the wireless network even thought it did in the past. I could print wirelessly. The ADD/REMOVE program wouldn't allow me uninstall it came up with an installation error when trying to do so.I then went onto a HP forum to try and get help and was directed towards deleting the HP files and downloading the HP driver from scratch. Afetr manually deleting the HP folders/files and downloading the relevant full HP driver I now get an installation error when trying to install the printer. I am now at a point that the PC doesn't even recognise the printer on the network and I can't install the driver. Is this something to do with the ADD/REMOVE program not being able to uninstall properly?

A:Solved: Windows XP/Printer Issue

Trying to remove a program manually is always a bad idea. You can never find everything that needs to be removed, especially in the registry. The only thing it will accomplish, is prevent further installation of the software.

If the software is still showing inside "Add or Remove Programs" chances are you might be able to remove leftovers with the free Revo Uninstaller, but I wouldn't bet on it. Still worth a try though.

I got a new laptop loaded with seven. I have an older HP7150. New pc runs 64 bit, printer 32. When I plugged in printer, it loaded "sometype" of driver that said it would work. Well, it sorta does and don't and for the most part, it jams up, feeds through unprinted paper and etc. Upon further reading I found where 32 bit devices do not work with 64. So, I called HP and they provided a little free help and I took it, up to the point where they wanted $$ for there help. So, what I did find out that by going to command prompt and typing driverquery that I do not have any type of 7150 driver. By going to the HP does not offer a 64 bit driver for seven, only for vista. Hmm, thought I'd give the vista driver a whirl...and this PC is so smart, in will not unload the driver. It just comes up with a message and says something like..."it's been determined that the driver you are already using, is better than the one that you want to use". Hmm, so can somebody please tell me, where I can find an actual driver that will work, that I can download to say, my thumb drive, that I can actually locate and installed in the printer properties? Thank you

Hi all,
Hoping someone out there may be able to help with the following.

I have a Canon MG8250 all in one printer/scanner. All was fine on Windows 8, but then upgraded to 8.1 a couple of weeks ago. Just got round to using the printer and scanner and the printer wouldn't work (scanner was fine). Uninstalled MP drivers and reinstalled from Canon site and all seemed fine with the printing. Alas the scanner now would not work. Did the same, uninstalled MP Navigator Ex and reinstalled from Canon site, but no fix this time. PC says "Cannot start MP Navigator Ex" and printer says "Set PC to start scanning".

Anybody know how to fix?

Good morning...

I am getting ready to purchase a new AIO printer and a Mac notebook. Right now we have a Dell laptop and a MacBook networked on a DSL cable box through a Dell Truemobile 2300 router.

I am looking at a Canon PIXMA MP970 AIO printer that I want to add with a MacBook Pro laptop. I am hoping that someone might be able to tell me if there is a compatibility issue here? The printer is offered on the Apple website and is supposed to work with a network, but one reviewer had this to say on connecting it:

"With most printers this is what you do....you have to connect by usb cable, tell the install program that u want to connect to a network and run an auto install program that finds the printer and installs the software. With the Canon MP970 you do this....
you connect by USB cable, tell the install program you want to connect to a network, connect a network cable. If you want the printer farther from the computer than the USB cable can reach, you have to set it up in one spot and then relocate it afterwards.??? Not difficult but not state of the art installation."

I did not connect my current network, so I can't understand what they are describing about making this connect with what I have already. I am wondering if I can use the router/DSL modem box I have, or do I have to get something else as well.

BTW, the Apple MacBook came out of the box and started working. Did not have to make one adjustment at all for it to work wirelessly. Now if I can... Read more

Hey guys, I'm trying to connect a new laptop windows 7 (64 bit) to a shared network printer thru a XP Home computer. I see it, we're all part of the work group however when I connect it does not supply me with the correct driver and says I must use one manually with a .INF extension. I go to CANON's Website and download their Driver for the (Canon PIXMA 6000D) on both the 7 and XP yet, nothing happens. I also manually search the folder when the error pops up as it suggests and it refuses to see the drivers. I suspect because they are in an executable format and not the .INF which it requests. However there only seems to be .EXE drivers available for this printer to communicate, and not the requested .INF.. I have networked printers before and 7 Is usually really good with automatically extracting drivers.. But this time I am STUCK.. Any ideas? ......THANKS

I installed a new PC running windows 7 on an existing network with a shared pinter on one of the XP computers on the network. I'm able to add the network printer and print the test page and can also print from notepad. However attempts to print from Word or Excel (2007) or a page on the internet all cause the program to "not responding". The print windows comes up with the printer selected as the default printer but hangs when I select print. I connected another Windows 7 PC and got the same results - test page and notepad print OK but not Word or Excel. Note, I installed the new Dell print driver for W7 and also tried the old XP driver - same results. Printer is a Dell MFP-3115cn. Any ideas? Thanks.

A:Solved: Windows 7 can't print to network printer

Additional testing: I connected the Dell 3115cn printer directly to the Windows 7 PC and it worked fine. I then shared the printer on the network and the other W7 PC was able to print to it with no problems - using my W7 PC as the print server. When I reconnected the printer to the XP PC, printing from both W7 PCs again failed. Interesting note: I connected another printer to the XP PC (a Ricoh printer) and both W7 PCs could print to it with no problems but still could not print to the Dell printer.
Dell thinks it's a problem with 64 bit W7 PC going through a 32 bit XP PC to the printer:

(Agent (OKCp_Matthew_193761): "Charles, I looked that exact error up on Google and everything that I read states: The process that handles converting the graphic functions in the driver from the 32 bit application to the 64bit driver and 64bit spooler is terminating. This process is s plwow64.exe. Most likely the driver is corrupting the memory of this application. When you print and Word crashes like that is because the applications memory has crashed. A few things to try is first to verify that you are using 64-bit office software for the Windows 7 machine. Second is to directly connect the printer to the Windows 7 PC and test it that way. There is some sort of conflict between 32-bit and 64-bit that is occurring on your network those steps will help narrow it down. )

Since I can print to the Ricoh printer using the same path through the XP PC, I would think the problem is in t... Read more

There is a shared printer on my wife's Windows 7 computer (HP7250). When both computers were XP, I had no trouble accessing them with all my accounts on my computer. 3 years ago I upgraded both computers to Windows 7. Same thing, no problem accessing the shared printer on all my accounts. Now I got a new Windows 8 computer and the only account that can access the shared printer is my admin account. Nothing has changed on the W7 box but I cannot access the printer with my W8 standard account, or my new "Microsoft" admin account. Only with my "local" admin account. I don't even see the printer in Control Panel/Printers and Devices, only in the local admin account. If I do a "net view \\HP7250\MP150" I can see the printer share on all my accounts. Therefore I can print on the shared printer only on my local admin account. Is this by design of W8 or am I missing something.

We recently ordered a new printer for our small business network. It is EXACTLY like the old printer, same model and I verified it has the same firmware rev as the old one. Since the driver software was already installed on all our machines, no need to do that. There is a static IP for the printer which is So this is basically a swap out to the same equipment, but the new printer will not recognize the proper IP address, it just reflects the factory default. I spoke to the Tech Support people at Brother (it is an HL 6050-DN laser) and they tried a bunch of things with me and we reset it a few times and they concluded the network card was bad, which seems a bit unlikely to me. I asked if the MAC address of the printer is an issue, since it is obviously different than the old one albeit the same printer spec. Maybe we need to update the MAC address on the server? router? or maybe this isn't an issue. Help is appreciated!

I havent had too much experience with Vista until lately, so I'll explain the best I can. Quite simply I recently installed a second computer into an office that has of course Windows Vista on it. Everything has run smoothly with setup and configuration except for the printer sharing. I've set it up with password protected sharing, and upon the initial setup, the printer was installed and working perfectly. When the box popped up to enter user name and pass to access the printer on the network from the other computer, I made sure to check the box 'remember password. My problem (or I should say the offices problem) now is that every time they shut down the computer at the end of the work day, it wont allow them to use the printer the following morning when they start up the machine. Does something reset with user access after the computer is shut down? And if so, would it be better to just to eliminate the password protection all together? I should note the initial reason for password protection was because they were on a wireless network, and extra protection was needed. But now the computers are networked on a local basis, we took out the wireless setup and put a hub in.

A:Printer network issue

When you enter the password, you are making a connection to the device itself.
if the system is shutdown, the connection is lost.

When restarted, you need another connection and --- password is required

Not long ago I switched network models from peer-peer to client/ server for my home network running W2K Server with XP Pro clients. I have an HP1000 Laser printer that has always worked fine without problems when it was shared with the peer-peer model.

The printer was inistially left installed directly on one of the client machines and shared from there. However due to problems I am having, I have changed it and now have it installed and connected directly to the W2K server machine.

The problem I am having is that I cannot print to the printer the majority of the times. When I look within the printers folder on the network machines the printer most always says "opening" and not "ready" like it should. The weird thing is whenever I immediately install the printer it is "ready" and prints with no problem. But as a short amount of time goes by it reverts back to the "opening" status. Also, the printer is fine and the W2K Server can print normally its just the networked clients that are having the problem.

The Netgear wireless router that I am using indicates constant network traffic between the one client and the server when the "opening" is indicated below the printer. Usually If I restart the machine the printer will then be "ready" and revert back to "opening".

FYI, the server is using the Active Directory which is how I normally find and install the printer.

Hi all,

I've an unusual problem...

First issue arose a week ago. I have a client who has three Xp clients on a network. THey each print to a Brother HK 2700N - connected and shared via usb from ws01 originally. File and printer shares on PC were corrupt and installation of office 2003 as well as logmein and antivirus software resulted in us reloading the OS from scratch. We placed the printer onto a second PC (ws02 and created a share). It prints fine both locally and from ws03 (the third client).

On reloading the OS onto ws01 and connecting everthing backup, printer still shared on ws02, it seemed to work fine. However, on day two, it dropped the printer. Yesterday, I reconnected printer and it was fine. Today, its gone again from this same computer, but ws02 still prints locally as well as ws03 through the share. Does anyone have any suggestions please?

Hi greetings to everyone.

Wanted to run this by all of you. I am a desktop tech at a company and we are having this printer issue. Well I say printer issue, they are saying it's a printer issue that I believe to be more of a network issue. the story goes like this...

They put it a new print server called bartender to run these label/tag printers that we have roughly 75-85 of at three different locations. The week of the change we started having these issues. The user could put in for a tag or label to be printed from the application they use, and they would get no jobs, no tags/labels, nothing. On the server side of things, the job on that printer would show errored out and the printer would appear as if it were offline. But at the same time it would be pingable. You could ping through the entire process. Funny thing is, is you could recycle the power on the printer and it would release the jobs and clear the queue right up. Now like I said we have between 75-85 of these printers, some of these get used more than others, some of these , this issue is occurring more on than the others. But keep in mind that they are spread out throughout three different locations, states and cities. Now some of these printers that the issue is occurring on is really bad. like at some locations, there may be a couple of printers that we may refer to as the "problem printers" because they seem to have this issue way more often than any of the rest of them.

Hello guys,

Been looking though several forums now and tried several so called solutions but nothing fixed my problem. So I hope you will be able to solve this problem for me.

Two days ago my connection to the internet went down. I went to look at the router/modem which told me that it was from my ISP's end. I shut down the computer and went to bed. Today I plugged in my new graphic card and turned on the computer and I no longer have a connection. Router/Modem blinks fine and the wireless is working just fine (currently from which I'm posting this thread). This is what I've done so far:

1. Uninstalled Bonjour and every single Apple connected program.
2. Switched back to my old graphic card to test whether that was causing some kind of problem.
3. Deactivated IVP6.
4. Reinstalled Windows 7 (64bit)
5. Resetted BIOS with the pin switching.

....and im still a helpless fellow with no internet on my desktop!

I've installed fresh versions of Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit on the first hard drive and both have the slow network issue. I've also tried a new network card and still have the same issue.

I've not yet installed any antivirus and turned off Windows firewall with no success. There are also no other startup programs running since these are fresh installs.

Just today I decided to download the Windows 8 consumer preview and setup my PC to dual boot with it. I am running Windows 7 home premium 64bit and the 64 bit windows 8 on my other partition.

After setting up a separate partition on my harddrive and loading windows8 to this partition, I was all up and running. I had no problems setting up or running windows 8, the problem came when I booted back to windows 7 for the first time.

When I booted into windows 7, I was getting the "unable to identify network" error, and no network connectivity. First thing I tried was simply disable/enabling my network adapter thinking it was just some hiccup. No luck there. Next I pulled the power from my router, and let it completely reboot. Still no luck. I then shut down my pc and booted back into windows 8 and sure enough I am able to get internet connectivity when I am running windows 8.

This got me to thinking that when I loaded windows 8 there may be some new drivers installed for my network card that are somehow causing issues when I load into windows 7 again. Not sure how this is possible, I was under the understanding that when I loaded Win8 to the separate partition that it would keep all it's drivers and settings there and not effect anything when I was loaded back on windows 7 (This logic could be completely wrong, I don't know). So I rebooted and loaded back into windows7, went into device manager and uninstalled both network adapters and drivers, and reboote... Read more

English is not my native tongue, I apologize for any misspells or similar in advance.

I?m connected to a Konica Minolta C224 network multifunction printer. I have never had any similar issues with any other of my printers.

Let me also say I work in traditional Desktop view.

I have no issue printing, not once did it refuse a print job. Issue below are not tied to a specific software, I?ve experienced it in software from at least Microsoft, Autodesk, Adobe, Foxit?

When opening Print Dialog I am mostly not allowed to go to Printer Properties/Printer Advanced Settings. I say mostly because every now and then I am allowed. When hitting the Properties button my system freezes. A popup dialog box appears stating different things but the last couple of times it has been ?A RPC (Remote Procedure Call) could not get through? (Or similar ? remember: I?m not using an English system). I hit OK. At this point the software is frozen and locked ? I have to go via Task Manager and Kill Task. Meanwhile, all other running programs are not affected.

So the story above could just as well include a slightly different popup dialog box message but the problem is the same. I can always print with my standard settings but if I want for example multicolour or duplex I have to have a separate printer installation for that.

So if I go to my Control Panel -> Units and Printers I do actually face the exact same problem. I enter C224 Printer Settings but if I now try to go to Printer Properti... Read more

I just bought a Samsung network multifunction printer CLX-6210FX. I am encountering trouble wiht the built-in Windows 7 firewall. Despite the TCP port 9100 is open both for entry and exit in the firewall, no file will print untill I shut down totally the firewall.
Which port should I open ? Or which application should I grant access so that I don't need to shut down the firewall each time I want to print somthing ?
Thanks for any help,

How did you set your printer up? Is it hooked to a PC on your network, a printer Hub or your router?

Here is the deal. I am running Windows XP SP2 on my home tower (custom built). The tower is hardwired to a Linksys WRT54GS router. The tower does not have a wireless NIC. There are a few other computers that access this small network at various times.

The router is using WPA-PSK encryption. Wireless MAC address connectivity is enabled.

I bought an HP 1022NW Laserjet printer and tried connecting it to the wireless network using the enclosed getting started guide. I initially tried connecting it in ad hoc mode because I believe this is what I should use in my home office. No dice. Nothing was recognized. The only printing success I got was when I hooked an Ethernet cable directly to the router. After unplugging the cable, I had no luck printing wirelessly, even though I tried also configuring the installation for infrastructure mode, where the printer was recognized but still would not print once the cable was removed.

I have taken the printer's MAC address and added it as a trusted endpoint in both my router's configuration table and in my firewall (Norton Internet Security). However, that has also not helped.

Some advice I have read is making sure QoS is disabled on the router and also making sure that the SSID and pass key for the printer match that of the router. It should be easy to make these changes to the printer, but I cannot access the embedded web server in this printer to make these changes. Also, one source said to make sure the printer is on the sam... Read more

I am trying to add a new network-ready printer (Brother MFC-7820N) to my existing wireless network. The printer is connected to a LAN port on the back of a wireless router.

The pre-existing wireless network consists of a Linksys BEFW11S4 wireless router, a wired Windows XP Home desktop and a wireless Windows XP Home laptop. The network has MAC address filtering and WEP security enabled.

I turned off both MAC and WEP security when installing the printer, and the wired desktop was able to detect the printer after going through "add network printer".

I got the printer's MAC address from the printer test page and added that to the router and turned the MAC filtering back on, and still ok: I was able to detect the printer from the wired desktop and print.

I then turned on the WEP security, and suddenly the wired desktop no longer detects the printer (tried pinging printer's IP address). If I turn off WEP, the desktop again recognizes the printer.

I'm not sure why WEP is affecting communication between two components that are both wired into the router. I haven't even tried to get the wireless laptop to communicate with the printer yet, since I can't even get the wired desktop fully working first. I don't want to disable WEP security, so that is not an option. Brother support says its an issue with the router. Is there some setting I need to change on the router? Alternatively, I think if I got a wireless print server and entered the WEP... Read more

First of all, THANKS for looking! Here's my quandry:

My wireless router is in the living room. My printer (which is networkable but not wireless) is in the study. How can I print from a laptop that is on the network wirelessly to that printer? (without walking the laptop over to the printer and using the USB cable)

I was thinking of adding another wireless router over by the printer and plugging the network cable into the router and printer. The router would not have any other network connection (wired) and set the router as an access point only.

Would that work? Probably not but figured it was worth a shot!

Thanks again for your help.

I have a HP color laserjet 1600 printer connected to a HP 6000 computer. The printer was working fine this morning and now when I go to print, the printer icon in the lower right hand tray comes up then goes away. I open the the printer and there are no jobs pending. It acts like it has printed but it didn't. I have uninstalled the printer, removed the usb printer from device manger, removed the hp folder with the drive for the printer from the c: drive, stopped and restarted the printer spooler in the services, changed out the usb cable, reinstalled the printer driver, reconnected the printer, computer finds the printer and it says it is ready to use. I try to print and the same thing happens. So after doing this over and over I decided to install the printer on my laptop and connect it to the laptop via usb. It works great, able to print. It has to be something going on with the PC but I don't know what. Can anyone give me some advice on this issue?

A:Solved: Printer issue

from MS themselves:


To resolve this problem, do the following.

To open Device Manager, click Start, click Search programs and files, and then type Device Manager. A list of available matching items appears above the search box; click Device Manager. Device Manager opens with your computer name at the top and a list of devices that are installed on your computer beneath your computer name.

Locate the malfunctioning device in the list of devices, right-click the device, and then click Uninstall. When a warning message appears that you are uninstalling a device from your system, click OK. Device manager uninstalls the device.

Right-click your computer name in Device Manager and click Scan for hardware changes. Device manager scans your system and automatically reinstalls your device.

Right-click the device and click Properties. On the General tab of the device Properties dialog box, in Device status, you should see the message This device is working properly.

If the steps above do not resolve the problems with the device, and if the device is an external drive, such as a USB flash drive or external hard drive, use the taskbar icon to safely eject the device, then unplug the device from the computer. For devices that use AC power, unplug the device from the electrical outlet or power strip, wait 30 seconds, and then plug it back in. Turn on the device power switch, and then plug it in to your computer. If the device includes a drivers disk, ensure that you hav... Read more

Doing a repair is not an option, because he is remote and we do not send out disks and Google isn't helping me with this question. TIA
