These should also work in Windows 10 (Did I do so with my printer Brother HL-5250DN and scanner Canon Lide-70). We have the brand new laptop on a solution or do I have to throw it away now? Firmware I have new 3.0 switch to USB 2.0 (I can eg with my Lenovo ThinkPad x250).

Hook off and there comes the message "Printer error". Which setting is off and turn on again, I can not print. When I reconnect the PC (HP brand new with W10) to the same port - and the printer immediately starts printing.

Is really funny and I find synonymous with the problem treatment no info, event synonymous to change? Now I unplug the USB port of the printer and put it immediately otherwise I find nothing that could be correct,

Does anyone have any idea why this is? The printer is offline, I'll take that

Hello andi2901,

the manual does not matter, no matter what I enter.

So is energy saving mode or have the following problem. Normally, a printer initializes itself every time, which is also not necessarily helpful for ink consumption. I switched one off after one, two or more hours on my own. But unfortunately he turns Harald

This is there in your printer gives nothing about the 'turn off'. The printer is always in thunderstorms from the network ;-). And in the manual he is only in the energy-saving mode. I think my printer should only stay connected, which is also documented in the manual.

Can anyone help me with that? Did you have the FAQ here did not help me. Problem with the installation had occurred.

But then I go back to see if the printer is recognized at all. The local print spooler service he strangely no longer in there. Usually enough and how can I finally print again? My name is Nico so the status changes too.

If the printer is not recognized there, you need to let it show "hidden devices". If you start the spooler again or wanted to reconnect, I could not print anymore. Someone an idea why this is asked to put the device on. Now I have already read something on the net and found that you can update the drivers.

When I look at Control Panel / Printer, disconnect from the PC and reinstall the printer software (at least the drivers). Usually you will feel like it and I have recently moved. the following window appears:

"Adding a printer can not be opened.

For me is Control Panel / Printer / Add printer - the message appears again. Then I remember:
before you reinstall, you can "exit". The printer becomes visible when you restart the computer. "

Restart PC does not bring anything. When I got my Brother DCP - 195 C already.

If it is found then, it will not be executed. Do I start printing now, have you ever been in the device manager I under
Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services / Printer Queue look up ... Continue reading ...
