Windows 7 Print issue

By roypavihi ·
I have a Windows 7 Professional laptop at the moment and I've set it up to print to a Toshiba eStudio520 Copier/Fax/Printer. But no luck with it. The drivers are already installed automatically by Win7Pro. It completes the installation with no errors, even when trying to print there are no errors coming up but no print out.

I used a Vista/XP machine and it prints fine.

(The Toshiba eStudio520 is setup via LAN. Laptop also in the same LAN)
Please help.

If I am understanding your question correctly

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to Windows 7 Print issue

You can not print to a Toshiba Network Printer is that correct?

If it is you need the Toshiba Install Package which can be downloaded from here but you'll need to find out if your copy of 7 is 32 Bit or 64 Bit first.

Then download the Complete Install Package and use the Vista Package to install the required Software and drivers. This will set the IP Address of the Printer on the network and add the required software to support printing.

Yes I cannot print to a Toshiba network Printer using Win7Pro but can print with XP and Vista.

I'll give it a try and will let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the help

Did you check the IP Address of the Printer in the Printer Proprieties?

by OH Smeg Moderator In reply to No Luck

When I was setting up Image Runners from Canon I had to always reset the IP Address of the Printer.

IP already set and already active.
I can print on a Vista Machine or XP but cannot on Windows 7

What did the Windows 7 Upgrade Adviser say about this unit?

I suppose that it's just possible that this is incompatible with 7. You can run this Utility on the Vista/XP Machine with the printer on and see what is says.

Try this

by gauthamamal In reply to Windows 7 Print issue

Most of the times, if you have any anti-virus installed in your computer, the firewall of the anti-virus will block the printing.

Try disabling the anti-virus or uninstalling it. If that works!!! add the printer spooler service or the printing service in the exception list of the anti-virus and check.....

It happened

by BizIntelligence In reply to Windows 7 Print issue

with one of my user who got his new laptop with a suprise of Windows 7.
We have a login script which installs network printers on logon if they are not installed already. In Windows 7, when logon script was trying to install network printers Windows asked to accept or trust the driver for each printer...Such a pain...

Anyhow, printers got installed but whenever user try to print something it prints as printer software confirm it but no print out at printer....WEIRD...

Windows 7 is new for me but after an hour struggle I managed to resolved it..I dont remember what I did as I was playing with settings as a kid who just got new toy...This is what I remember (I should have created an article in my IT WIKI...damm)

First of all, I removed all the printers..Later went to Control Panel > Action Centre > Turned off all security settings and Maintenance settings...

Please note to view all settings you will need to click on tab...for example if you working on Maintenance settings then Click on Maintenance to hide or display all settings....

Later restarted laptop and let the printers installed. This time no warning or confirmation...Done...Try printing and it worked.

Hopefully, it should work for you...

Also check if it works with user added to administrative group or with administrator account....

Cheers !
