    Trouble printing to shared printer


    Hi Everyone,

    This has been a tough one, never run into an issue like this before. I have a printer shared through a PC on the network, it was working fine until it appears MS updates may have broken it recently. It is the only thing that changed recently. the weird thing is some PCs can still print to it. Here is the basic setup and things I've tried and noticed.

    Printer is a Dymo Label printer attached via USB001 to the host computer and shared out.

    I can add the printer with no issues to other machines

    When I try to print from most most machines the jobs make it to the shared printer queue and error out. In the event viewer, the event ids go 800 and 801 then stop. Once the job is deleted the ids 842 isolation comes up stating the processor is returning error 0x3f or xBBB. I have searched on these and nothing is fixing this.

    I have reinstalled the driver on the host and client machines, I have verified that Everyone has permissions on the printer object and the the Spool and Printers folders. One thing I noticed is that the test jobs that succeed show a size of 5.98MB and the ones the fail show about 14KB. I am quite stumped on this one so I'm hoping somebody can give me a hand.


    Thanks,

    Brandon

    :)

    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.

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Step 1: Go to store.
    Step 2: Buy a less shitty printer.
    Step 3: Pick up some beer while you are there.
    Step 4: Enjoy both your new printer and your beer.

    In all seriousness, I have had more issues with Lexmark printers and their shitty drivers then any other manufacturer, HP is a close second though.

    However, if you don't want to get a new printer*Laugh :laugh:, and I can understand that, when my Lexmark was giving me the same troubles in Win7(and Vista) I had to make sure the Windows firewall was ON and the firewall service was enabled and running. After I shared it I could re-disable the firewall and firewall services.

    Trouble printing to shared printer

    Can't share printer—getting error message

    Ok, I'm going to take this one step further... I moved the printer to my server (thoroughbred) and it will handle the printing from now on. Now I won't have printer drivers on my gaming machine...

    I'm a bit worried about sharing it between a 32-bit xp system and a 64-bit 7 system, though
