Canon Imagepass D660 Laser Printer - Cannot Find Driver


I'm looking for creative ideas on my friend's current conundrum. He got a new $400 compaq pc from best buy loaded w/ windows 7 64-bit. All went swimmingly well until we got to his canon imagepass d660 laser printer. No 64-bit driver. Canon will never create a 64-bit driver for it. He loves this printer and does not want to abandon it. We can print to the printer from a laptop we converted from 32-bit vista to 32-bit 7. I'd share the printer from the laptop to the desktop but i believe that would still require a 64-bit driver.

I see only two options, unless someone can suggest another:

1. Repurchase win 7 at retail; wipe & reload the pc with 32-bit. Not sure if 32-bit drivers are available for the internal hardware. No cd came with the pc, either.

2. Return the pc and locate another pc with 32-bit loaded - probably via dell or hp online.
If there is any way to circumvent a problem where there is no 64-bit support for a printer but another networked pc can print via 32-bit, i'd love to know about it.

Canon Lbp 810 Laser Printer Driver Installation Problem

Windows 7 os wont install driver for canon lbp810 laser printer using installation disk for lbp810 printer. I have attempted to run the install disk for the printer as well as using auto update function in windows 7. It seems the list of printers windows lists does not include the lbp810 model. I have also downloaded the driver from the net which fails as well. There seems to be a compatibility issue with the older drivers used to run printers. Can anyone please help me with this?

Cannot Find .inf Printer Driver For Canon Pixma Ip4000

I have a laptop running windows 7 (64-bit machine) that i want to print from. The laptop is wireless on a home network. The desktop is wireless as well and is running windows xp. The desktop has a canon pixma ip4000 printer hooked up with a parallel cable. I have installed the latest xp drivers for the printer on the desktop. The laptop can connect directly to the printer with a usb cable and the drivers will download automatically and it will print fine. However, i cannot connect this printer using the wireless system.

I can go on the laptop to the home network and navigate to the printer and try to install. It does an automatic search and says it cannot find the proper drivers. I can browse to the install file on my desktop, but it is an .exe file and not . Inf. I have run the .exe file and it installs too, but the printer installer on the laptop will not let me by the add . Inf screen to finish installing a wireless printer. Any suggestions?

Canon Mf4370dn Laser Printer Keeps Showing Up As "offline"

I just bought a new canon mf4370dn laser printer and followed the instructions that came with the printer for setting it up to print via the network. The printer printed the test page, but keeps showing up as "offline" and i can't print anything at all. I have a toshiba laptop that has windows 7 on it (not sure if that's relevant).

I have very little knowledge of how networks work or how to set such things up properly, but i followed the instructions in the 'starter guide' that came with the printer. The printer is plugged in and turned on, however keeps showing up as "offline" when i look at the printer queue.

Cannot Install Canon Ip6700d Printer Driver

I have windows 7 64 bit set up with a canon ip6700d printer. I set up the printer to be shared on the network with another pc running windows xp 32 bit. When setting up the sharing options>additional drivers, i point to the x86 file: ip6700d. Inf located on the printer install disc. When i attempt to install the driver i get the message: "the specified location does not contain the driver canon inkjet ip6700d for the requested architecture" i have verified that it is the correct inf file by opening it. The following is the header info:

; Ip6700d. Inf (for windows x86 monolithic driver)
;
; List of supported printers, manufacturers

Attempting to install the driver on the xp machine fails as well with the same file, when i try to add it as a network printer. Is there something i am missing?

Dell Printer 1500 Laser

Dell will not update the drivers for my printer (1500p laser) - it's in perfectly working condition, so i would like to keep it. I have a pc running xp (on a shared network) so i'm wondering. Is there a way to create a shared folder on the xp machine and when i add files to the share from the win7 (x64 hp) pc, the xp treats the folder as a print que, therefore, i can still print from my primary (win7) to the 1500 laser?

Oki Laser Printer Offline Error

I'm using windows 7 64bit edition and an oki c5150n laser printer and have downloaded the latest drivers from the website. It always says the printer is offline, and when i uncheck the "use printer offline" mode, anytime i try and print it gives an error, which troubleshoot "fixes" by turning the printer to offline mode and the file i sent to print still does nothing. I have checked the cords, rebooted the printer and computer, as well as using "remove device". Any ideas would be appreciated

Hp Laser Jet 5p Printer Problem In Win 7

I've spent about 5-6 hours on this, and am pulling my hair out.

I've got a new hp computer w/ w7 home premium 64 bit. And i'm connecting my old laserjet 5p via a parrallel line from the printer, to a male, 25 pin (db25), that is plugged into a female db25 parallel cable that has a usb on the other end. Usb is connected to port on the new computer. The device area has it listed as only a "unspecified" unknown device.

I started with w7's canned programs adding a printer, setting up devices, downloading drivers. Driver updates. When the test print did nothing, then i went onto trouble shooting. When that went nowhere.

Then i went to hp, looked through many blogs/community help sites, and eventually used their tech support for both the new computer area (had me re-do the canned parts, download drivers via devices area, again, and when that failed (again) they suggested i call their "commercial laserjet" technician who said. "It's no longer supported. " And if the driver you downloaded doesn't work, it's ms's problem, not ours.contact them. " Which (eventually) leads me here.

I went thru the ms canned fix-its, and downloaded manually from hp's site (as opposed to the devices automatic download/updates), only to get a message. "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver. The error occurred during installation, because it is either not digitally signed or not signed.contact your hardware vendor (that would be hp, who doesn't support it)

So you get the picture. I working a pretzel here. Ms says it's hp, hp says it's ms. And all i want is to use my printer that worked two weeks ago on my old compaq

So, there was one hp clue that i found that seems like i might be closer to the problem a .doc that said, look for a ieee 1284 interface in your devices, and make sure there are no error codes. So, i found ieee 1394's or something like that (i'm not there now). But no ieee 1284's. Let alone error codes

So, i got back in touch with hp service, and how do i get ieee 1284 there instead. They said they don't know, and it's a ms problem.

So, with a little more digging, i found in "device manager" that i could add a ieee 1284 printer. But the drag down list did not have the 5p. So close, but so far, and nothing to update, like in the other device area.

So, i'm getting pretty frustrated that an hp printer can't work on an hp computer, even after downloading a driver from hp. Is this ieeee 1284 something you can set up?

Any clues on how to fix this would be very, very much appreciated

Thanks, drjames

Win7 Can't Find Printer Port For Usb Printer

I have a canon pixma mp780 printer. It is a usb printer. I downloaded the latest driver, which is supposed to be specifically for windows 7. Windows installed the driver with no problems, but it is having trouble locating the printer port. I have the cable connected on both the pc and the printer. I have tried unplugging and re-plugging them both, as well as restarting the machine. The window for finding the printer port has the following message:

"Caution! Cannot detect the printer port. Check that the printer is on and that the cable is connected. If the port has not been detected even though it is connected, disconnect the cable from the printer and then reconnect it. "

I am at a loss as to what to do next. The window claims it will close once it finally detects the printer port. I have tried to plug the printer into different usb ports in hope that one of them would finally be recognized, but so far it has been to no avail. Do i need to reboot? Is there anything else i can do? I didn't have any problems when i was using windows xp, so i'm sure it is a windows 7 issue.

Canon Mp620 Printer

Iam using a canon mp620 printer networked with 2 laptops and a pc. The pc runs xp and the two laptops previously ran vista home premium - no problems. Since upgrading (!) To windows 7 ultimate on the laptops, the printer will not run with any machine via wireless/networking, and will work with the xp pc via usb and with one of the laptops only, also only via usb. The laptops and the printer can identify each other wirelessly , and say that they are linked and working until i try to print anything - then, after the print queue, nothing happens.

Control panel shows a 'troubleshoot' message by the printer. One laptop will not work even when connected by usb. I have downloaded new drivers from canon. Any ideas, please - preferably not too technical, if poss.

Driver For Canon Ip1600

Windows update cannot find a drive for my canon ip1600. Canon's website only shows a driver for an add-on module. Device manager does not recognize it as a printer. It shows device type as other devices. It connects by usb. I use windows 7 professional 64 bit. I spoke with someone at canon who said that the driver is available through windows update and said to talk with microsoft. I talked with someone at microsoft and the only way they can help is if i pay $59 for support which i will not do. Can anyone help with this?

Canon Mpc200 Printer Issue

I'm using windows 7 and have installed the latest driver available for the canon mpc 200. I can see the the driver has been successfully installed in the device manager window. The device status also shows that "this device is working properly. " However, when i go to the control panel to "add a printer", the exact device name is not listed there, so i selected what seems to be the nearest match i.e. "Canon inkjet mp21 series. "

When i tried to print a test page - nothing happened. (Even though the driver i installed has the exact name has the printer - i can't understand why it is available in the droop down list of available printers. ) So, i tried adding it as a new device but it wasn't identified.

I have downloaded the latest driver from canon web page.

Printer Error With Canon Mp500

I installed windows 7 (64-bit), and am now having problems printing with my canon mp500 printer (previously ran fine with windows vista). I've installed the 64-bit drivers for windows 7 from the canon printer web site, but get the following message every time i try to print: "cannot communicate with printer. Turn enable bi-directional support on in the printer's properties dialog box. "

The error message pops up every time i print, but i know the printer is connected because i can print documents from my computer (word files, etc). However, i cannot print anything from the web. I just get a page with the header/footer and blank in the middle. I checked the dialogue box for the printer, but don't see where to change the setting to correct this problem. Can you offer any suggestions?
