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 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 B4350 Printer Fails

I have an oki b4350 usb printer that works well with xp and vista. Just got a new pc with windows 7. The driver appears in the windows 7 preloaded drivers, and the plug&play install routine appears to work properly. But upon trying to print, nothing comes out, and the printer's display reads "invalid data". The document leaves the print queue, as though printed, so windows does not appear to know there was an error. Any suggestions?

(I checked the oki website, they have nothing for windows 7, and under vista they just say it is preloaded with windows, there is no separate driver download available. ) I have also tried uninstalling the driver and printer, rebooting and reinstalling. Same problem.

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

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.

Printer Offline

New laptop with windows 7 - initially no issues with pairing to wireless internet and printer hp photosmart premium c309g-m until i bought home work laptop also with windows 7. Needed to use wireless printer and to connect temporarily to internet this system forced me to setup network group (not being completely sure what i was doing but thought i was doing no harm).

Thats when the problems started, this disabled our home laptop computer which before this was wirelessly connected to the printer and internet it stopped printing or connecting to internet even after joining the network group (for home computer with correct pass words etc) many many hours waisted, eventually got connection back to internet by restoring to a previous date.

I then deleted the  network groups, the printer shows as default in devices and printers but when fails to print saying it is offline, i have tried deleting printer and searching for bluetooth from both laptop and from the printer end a well (none detected).

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 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.

Oki C6100 Vista Driver X64

I recently purchased this printer and it worked fine with my vista home premium edition. My laptop was having issues and it was time to upgrade for school anyway so i did. The desktop i purchased has windows 7 so i went to the oki site and downloaded the windows vista x64 that they recommended and say should work. It doesn't. The driver is on my computer but it is not recognized and the computer says my printer is working fine but will not print anything because it's(print icon) not in the print area because it has no driver attached.

Laser Mouse 8000 Will Not Charge

I usually carry my laser mouse 8000 around with my notebook since i'm not a big fan of touchpads. I use it until the battery runs out, then i put it back on the charger. Been doing this for months. About a week ago, i pulled it off the charger after letting it sit overnight and when i tried to use it i couldn't get it to work.

I tried a fresh non rechargeable battery and it worked fine, so i tried just recharging it again to no avail. I tried lightly abrading the contacts with some fine grit sandpaper and cleaning with some rubbing alcohol and q tip, but i still cannot get it to charge. Any ideas?

Microsoft Wireless Laser Mouse 8000 Issue

I have a microsoft wireless laser mouse 8000. It was made in march 2007, i got it in around 2008 and have been using it every day. Recently it doesn't work much anymore. It will just stop working and putting in a new battery sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. Most of the time, even after a new battery has been inserted. I will turn it on, it either will do nothing, or glow green for a few sometimes work sometimes not.

Is it dead and should i have to get a new one? I recently picked up a pack of 8 rechargeable batteries, with a charger.

Ms Wireless Keyboard / Laser Mouse 5000 Intermittent Problem

I have an intermittent problem with my ms wireless keyboard and laser mouse 5000. Windows is not recognizing the receiver in "device manager" and will not allow any updates due to compatibility issues. My ms wireless has worked then when i re-boot, it will not work. I cannot find anything consistent about the problem so i can't troubleshoot the issue.

The only consistent thing is that when the device manager is reading a failure on the receiver, i can change ports and it doesn't change anything. I tried removing the drivers, and installing new drivers but nothing seems to help. What do i do to get win 7 device manager to recognize my wireless keyboard and mouse receiver?

No Offline Files

I have a user that has offline files enabled and syncing. When she takes her laptop out of the office, she can login and see her files, work with them and return to the office an sync the changes. Now for the problem, if she wants to connect to say a hotel wi-fi, she can do so, but after logging in she doesn't have her offline files. It appears that windows 7 creates a new profile for her. She is using her domain login credentials and does not change to (this computer) when she is connected elsewhere.

Offline Folders

I have a general question having to do with offline folders. If you have offline folders and say someone then on the server moves some files into a subfolder. When you resync back up how is that handled? Are the files deleted and the copied on your offline folder cache or are they moved? And what happens if you happened to make a change to a file, but it's been moved on the server? I've been looking, but can't find any documentation as to what happens when. Can somebody please help me out?

Always Available Offline Not Available For Network Folders

I have a netgear stora nas. All is well with my network access to the device, but windows 7 will not index any of the folders.

Offline File Synchronisation

As an experienced xp pro user, i am somewhat surprised at what appears to be limitations associated with win 7 offline file synchronization process in xp pro files would sync on log on, log off and as frequently in between as you established. However in win 7 it appears to only sync on log on [and as timed in between] but not on log off - am i correct?

If so am i also correct that there is a strong potential of losing recently updated network files that when you log off [ie after the last timed sync] and as such are not on the remote/network pc/laptop. Has anyone encountered this problem and more importantly identified a way of resolving it please.

Offline Files Problem

i have a network with:

Desktop - win 7 ultimate
Dell laptop - win 7 pro
Sony laptop - win 7 home premium
Netgear readynas duo

I have tested the "always available offline" function on the desktop and dell laptop and it works fine with files on the nas. However on the sony laptop the right-click option "always available offline" does not appear. I can find the sync center in the control panel, but when i go to "set up new sync partnerships" it says " there are no new sync partnerships that can be set up on this computer". Also the "manage offline files" link doesn't work.

Can anyone help me enable this? I'm assuming that this function is available on home premium as there is an entry in the control panel.

Offline Files Problems

I'm having all kinds of problems trying to get offline files to cooperate with me. This is the first windows 7 machine we have on the domain. We have been running xp with offline files successfully for several years. Some info about the setup:

The machine is connected to our domain (2003 level). H: is mapped to the users' home directory on our file server (2003 server r2). The mapping is done through the profile tab for the user in active directory. "Documents" and "desktop" are redirected to h:documents and h:desktop via group policy.

According to windows explorer, both documents and desktop have offline files enabled (i believe this is by default when using folder redirection). If i'm online, i can force a sync by right-clicking each folder and selecting "synchronize selected offline files" (i'm on swedish win7, so it might not say exactly that). However, if i go into the synchronization center and hit synchronize, nothing happens. The status just reads "waiting for synchronization". No error messages, no event log messages, nothing.

Another issue i'm having is that if i pull the network cable, the folders go offline and i can continue to work on documents as well as save new ones, but when i reconnect the network cable, it doesn't go online again. Even logging out and in again doesn't help. In order to get back online, i need to restart the computer. And even then, when i login, it won't synchronize automatically. I still have to force the sync by right-clicking each folder and hitting synchronize.

It should be noted that after re-connecting the network cable, it appears the computer doesn't even have connectivity with our domain. For example, running gpupdate results in an error about not being able to contact the domain controller. What's up with that?

Offline Files Lost

I have map network drive on my computer. Which is connected to a data folder on an other computer in my small office network. I hade activated the service "enable offline files".

Today when i loged on sync process started. When it was in process i disabled the function  "enable offline files". Sync was stoped. But some files from that folder on another computer are now missing. Now from where i can find those files.

 Perhaps when sync was in progress i disabled the offline files and the files from my computer could not be copied to that network computer. Please tell from where now i can restore those files. They are five files which are missing.

I am much worried. I dil not know that how offline files work so i did by mistake. But that data in those files was very important. That contains record of my company for many years.

Removing Offline Files In Win 7 After Upgrade

Removing offline files in windows 7 after both windows upgrade to 7 and elimination of server drives that were mapped with offline files enabled. Installed windows 7 on vista ultimate laptop.

Saving Offline Files To A Seperate Partition

When i installed win7 on my vaio i created a separate partition for my data (d:) & reserved the smaller (40gb) c: partition for system files. When i activate offline files, it quickly fills the c partition as it is storing these offline files in the csc folder.

I followed all the advice i received in the folowing thread:

Without success. Apparently i'm not the only one having this probem. It still tells me that 'access is denied' when trying to delete csc folder.
