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.

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

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?

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?

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

Dell Printer Goes Offline After Shut Down / Restart

I have a netgear 802. 11g wireless router with an hp 6840 printer & a dell mfp 1600n printer attached via ethernet cables. My various macintosh, windows xp and vista computers have been printing to these printers via wireless connections without problems for the last several years.

I got a new lenovo t410 notebook, with windows 7, in january 2010. I can install both remote printers on this system, and then print to them via the wireless router. However, when i shut-down or restart the t410, the 1600n printer shows up as "offline". I must then "remove" this printer, and re-install it (via "add printer") on the t410. It seems to lack "persistence" across a system restart with the windows 7 system. The hp printer works fine, showing "ready" status after a restart. Both printers work fineafter shut-downs and restarts on the mac, xp and vista systems. I use a static ip address for the 1600n, and have the latest windows 7 driver from dell.

One other piece of data: during the "add printer" process, the hp printer is automatically discovered, i select it, and then add it. The dell printer is not discovered, and i have to add it as a tcp/ip address, "generic device", of type "dell network printer", then specifically "dell mfp laser 1600n". Any ideas would be appreciated - lenovo and delltech support refuse to help troubleshoot- both say it is a microsoft problem.

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.

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 thedriver 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.

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).

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 connectedbecause i canprint documents from my computer (word files, etc). However, i cannotprint 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'tsee where to change the setting to correct this problem. Can youoffer any suggestions?

Canon Pixma Ip4000 Printer Problem

Windows 7 64 bit laptop on wireless network cannot find . Inf printer driver for canon pixma ip4000 wired to windows 7 32 bit pc. New win 7 64 bit laptop connected wirelessly in a home network through a netgear wndr3700 router. Wired to the router is a pc with a usb attached canon ip4000 printer. This printer has worked flawlessly with this pc for years. Add the laptop. Attempt to access the printer over the network (it is set to share on the pc) results in a failure to find the driver for the printer.

At the canon download site, i have downloaded and installed on both machines the driver add-on "aomwin110ea23us.exe". This does nothing to solve the problem. Then, following the suggestions in the above referenced thread, i downloaded 7-zip, installed it, and unpacked the canon add-on file.

Guess what? - There is no, none, nada, stupid ". Inf" file in there! I understand that i need to set advanced sharing on the pc to both x32 and x64, but without a valid . Inf file to point to, i am sunk. And the same thing is true when trying to add the printer to the laptop - no . Inf file to point to. The one thing i have not tried is installing the printer directly to the laptop via usb, and that is because that is not a usable configuration for me.

The printer must be attached to the pc. Is there anyone out there who can help me solve this dilemma? Please do not give me an answer that tells me to generally download the driver - you have to tell me specifically what driver, then walk me through the process.
