  1. Printer problems after upgrading to Win 10 1903


    I recently upgraded to Windows 10 1903.

    Appeared to go ok, until I wanted to use my printer, a Brother MFC-J5330DW. It would not function, even though the device preferences and settings could be seen and it was flagged as the default printer in the Windows settings. Any attempt to print would bring an error message and nothing would happen.

    It appeared from reading the various forums that this was a common problem, and with all printer types, so i spent half a day trying the many remedies that were being promoted, including work-arounds from Microsoft - none worked.

    I then reverted to the previous 1803 version of Windows 10. I had to reinstall the printer driver, and now all is operating as it should.

    It is clear this is a problem with v1903, and that Microsoft has no solution yet.

    Therefore I would suggest be careful of doing the upgrade, particularly if your printer function is important to your business, until Microsoft provide a permanent solution via new upgrade.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 new upgrade; HP network printer will not print

    Windows 10 new upgrade; HP network printer shows as properly installed on printer list but will not print. Printer dialogue box shows "printing" but no output. I have removed and reinstalled this printer to this PC. Same printer worked before with
    Win 8.1 and still does with my wife's Win 7 PC. So not printer. Win 10 printer troubleshooter did not find any problems. Any suggestions to correct?

    Win 10 Network Printer Connection Problem

    I have tried, when using the wifi from a Win 7 computer to connect to the printer connected to it. Others can connect.

    I did do the three steps outlined:

    • Open File Explorer. Pick the "Network" icon from the left pane (navigation pane) of the file explorer UI.
    • If sharing is turned off you will see a pale yellow line towards the top of the window that states "Network Discovery is turned off. Network computers and devices are not visible. Click to change...".
    • Click this bar and select "Turn on network discovery and file sharing"

    None of the suggestion worked.

    I did notice that the PC I'm connecting to is 'Private' while I am listed as 'Public'.

    • Can this be causing the problem?
    • Are there other suggestions?

    I need to be connected to use the other printer so work flow can not be disrupted and someone else needs to print the file for me.

    I will be with this group again on Monday.

    Thank you.

    Printer problems after upgrading to Win 10 1903

    Win 10 1809 kb4497934 update fails with 0x80070157

    Hello,

    I tried all suggestions up to upgrading to 1903 from

    step 1 in fixes. I also tried step 2. None of the fixes

    solved the problem. I am not willing to upgrade to

    1903 - not during the first month of availability! Do

    you take me for a fool? Windows Update continues

    to be the most unreliable component of Win 10.
