    Print problem - I may have fiddled with ports and dont understand what I have done


    Printing problem. I have recently moved and changed to Sky broadband. TV set up ok and wifi to Canon printer works fine on my phone. It seems to be ok on the printer which prints out a test page but when I try to print there is a message in print queue to say there is a problem.

    I have run troubleshooter under manage your device and shows no issue. I think i may have fiddled with ports and changed something. I have a home Toshiba laptop.


    Any help would be very gratefully received because I need to print some stuff this morning.

    :)

  2. Printing problem - port in use

    Print  problem - I may have fiddled with ports and dont understand what I have done [​IMG]
    Since changing my desktop computer to a laptop, I have been having problems printing to my Canon TS8250 multi-function printer. Several times a day, I receive a message that the printer port is in use when I try to print something. When it occurs, the only way to clear it seems to be to reboot my computer, after which the document prints normally.

    I have been on to Canon support and so far, they have been unable to come up with a solution. I tried re-installing the printer drivers as they suggested, but it didn't make any difference. My printer is connected to the network by Wi-Fi, as is my computer. My daughter, who also has a laptop connected to the same network, was able to print without any problems while the port busy message was being displayed on my computer. The signal is very strong to all devices as we are within a few feet at most from the router (my computer is only about a foot away from it).

    I'm going to attempt to upload a few screenshots to show what is happening.

    Windows 10 Home Won't Print to Remote Printer


    I have three computers.
    Machine 1: Windows 10 pro, has the USB Brother HL-5040 printer
    Machine 2: Windows 10 pro, prints OK to the remote printer.
    Machine 3: Windows 10 home, Used to print, but not anymore (THIS IS THE PROBLEM).
    I’ve tried everything that I can think of, and would appreciate any suggestions.
    I did these steps on Machine 3 that did not work.

    1. Remove the printer device.
    2. Add a Printer
    3. The printer that I want isn’t listed
    4. Select a shared printer by name
    5. Browse
    6. Select the displayed Machine 1.
    7. Select the displayed Printer.
    8. Next
    9. Failure “Connect to Printer”.
    10. Add a printer using a TCP/IP address or Hostname
    11. Next
    12. Set Hostname to Machine 2, and set port name.
    13. Detecting TCP/IP Port
    14. Additional Port information required.
    15. Device Type – Standard, Brother Port Server
    16. Next
    17. Detecting the Driver Model
    18. Install The Print Driver
    19. Select Brother and Brother HL-5040
    20. Next
    21. Replace the Current Driver
    22. Printer Name (setting it to HL-5040)
    23. Next
    24. Do not share this printer
    25. Next
    26. You’ve successfully added “HL-5040”
    27. Finish
    Printing on Machine 3 puts the document in the print queue, which reports error printing.
    Printing from Machine 2 to the printer on Machine 1 works perfectly.
    All three machines are in the same HomeGroup. Machine 3 can access the shared files from Machine 1.

    printing problems with windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for responding.

    I understand that you have successfully installed the printer and printer is detected on your device.

    Do let us know few additional information to assist you better:

    • Which type of files/ documents are you trying to print from the printer?
    • Are you trying to print from the website? If so, which browser are you using?

    As you have connected the printer via USB port, I suggest you to connect the printer to different port and check if it helps.

    Also, I suggest you to run Printer troubleshooter from the Microsoft article Fix printer problems
    and check if it helps.

    Try the above and reply to the post with the required information, we will help you further.
