Kodak 7250 won't print from wireless, says printer disconnected,

Q: Kodak 7250 won't print from wireless, says printer disconnected,

We recently moved to another location in the same city, but when I went to try to print from my Gateway Laptop on the Kodak 7250 printer, it says that the printer is disconnected. I have restarted the computer, turned the printer off waited and then turned it back on and have turned off the router and then turned it back on. In the printer tools section of the printer info, it lists the printer but then says disconnected beside it. I don't know what to do to fix this and I have tried a few things that were listed on the internet such as downloading new firmware for the printer but I don't know how to do that for the Cox Cable Router which was a suggestion.

Preferred Solution: Kodak 7250 won't print from wireless, says printer disconnected,

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Kodak 7250 won't print from wireless, says printer disconnected,

have you reset the kodak up on the new network - how is the kodak setup - fixed IP or to use DHCP
have a look at the network settings for the printer

and then on a PC post back here an ipconfig /all

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in the forum reply.

My new Kodak ESP 5250 wireless printer will not work with my D-link DIR 615 router. According to Kodak customer support, my wireless router needs configuring. They told me that the "always broadcast DHCP" should be disabled. If that makes any sense! Is this something I can do myself? I was on the chat line with Kodak for 2 hours, then I was on the phone with them for about one hour before they finally told me that.

Dad needs help in wireless Kodak 5500 printer. Setting the scene: First, he operates both computers on Vista. Secondly, he has Linksys print server upstairs with Kodak printer and a desktop next to it. Thirdly, he has laptop downstairs and wants to print wirelessly to the printer located upstairs. He is operating with 802.11 on all devices. He needs a step by step procedure to get the printer to print from computer upstairs and downstairs. Can anyone provide me a printed version of each exact step to this problem? I would appreciate this very much.

A:Solved: Wireless Kodak Printer

I looked at the Kodak 5500 specs and found that it is a all-in-one, but does not seem to have wireless capability. So, that's why there is also a print server in the mix?

What is the problem? Is that print server supposed to work with the Kodak 5500?

If you want a printed version of each step suggest you first look at whatever manuals you have for the print server and print them if necessary.

I have an HP C5280 printer running wirelessly via a TP Link wireless print server and D Link Di 624 wireless router. I can print successfully from either my desktop (which is connected direct to the D Link router) or either of my laptops (wireless). However, when I select the double-sided print option I get a print error message after re-inserting the odd number pages to print the other side of the paper and then click 'continue'.

Could I resolve this by connecting the printer both direct to the desktop using USB AND leaving it connected via the wireless TP Link print server? This would enable me to print double-sided from my desktop (as I did before when the printer was only connected via the USB desktop port).

A:Wireless Printer won't print.

Go to the printer and print out a config page. Take note of the wireless IP address of the printer.
Go to Start/Devices and Printers click Add Printer. Choose Network Printer. Let it scan for your printers IP address. If it can't find it, then add it via the printers IP address. If this doesn't work, then try the following.
Go to Start/Devices and Printers. If the Canon printer is there, right click and Delete it.
Go to Start/Search and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. Uninstall any Canon software. Restart the computer. When the computer comes back up, download the latest driver from Canon: Choose to install with USB. Setup will tell you when to plug in the USB cable, During the install, once the USB cable is plugged in, do the install again this time for Wireless. That should find the printers IP address. Once that is found, then you can remove the USB cable and try to print Wirelessly.

When I try to print to my HP6940(?) wireless printer from my laptop I get the following message:
"The print spooler was unable to connnect to your printer. This can be caused by your printer being turned off, a cable being unplugged, or being connected to a VPN."

I recently tried TrendMicro PC Cillin. Just before the printing ceased I had a popup referencing the print spooler I think... I tried to see if I inadvertantly blocked my printer. When I open the HOSTS file in notepad from windows\system32\drivers\etc the file is completely commented out as a sample file???

How can I restore printing?

First do you have any other wireless devices AND can they prin to the printer ?
What OS do you have ?

Friends, this is my first post.
My HP Photosmart 6510 B211a printer is set up correctly -- it prints a 'congratulations' sheet telling me so -- but so far I have failed to persuade it to print for me. It is wireless (no USB cable), so gets its jobs via the router (which is a British Telecom Home Hub 3, for broadband).
How do I tell Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit) how to talk to it?! Does the pc need a driver -- I have no message asking me to install one? And if a driver is needed, which one?
I wish to use a software 'printer' (to wit: the admirable FinePrint or PDF Factory) which sends pages to print, informs me that that is what it has done -- but nothing actually prints. Playing around with 'defaults' has so far achieved nothing.
Ideas? Suggestions? Similar experience? I'm all eyes/ears.

A:wireless HP printer won't print

You must have istalled a disk, that would contain the drivers. Your firewall is probably stopping your pc talking to the printer. I had this on a HP wireless all in one, a few years back, and i think thats down to hp not your firewall.

Hey guys, been banging my head on the wall about this issue.

I recently purchased an Epson XP-205 Wi-Fi printer, and I set it up on my network and installed the drivers to my laptop, initially I could print over the network, but since a restart I can't. I have tried an uninstall and reinstall of the printer, but to no avail and if it matters, I'm running W7 64-bit.

I've ensured the printing programs are part of my firewall exclusion rules, and I can access the printers set up page via, also as expected, the printer is "pingable". On top of this my Android tablet is able to send things to the printer, so I'm sure it is an issue with my laptop.

I'm tech minded, so feel free to rabble on, I'll understand.

A:Laptop can't print to wireless printer

I assume that there is now a printer icon in your Notification Area showing the print queue of files you've tried to print. Examine the settings in that to make sure the printer is not in a "use offline" mode.

In Devices and Printers right click on the printer - Printer properties (that's not the Properties choice at the bottom) - General tab - Print Test Page. What happens?

I have long printed from my laptop to my printer - wirelessly. Some time ago, my wireless router went down and I had to reconfigure to print via USB for awhile. Since the wireless has been back up, I can't print from my laptop. My daughter prints wirelessly from her laptop. My husband prints via USB. I've done my best to make sure my settings are right, but nothing works! One thing - when I got the new router, it couldn't handle my network name the way it had been before, so I changed it. Perhaps that messed something up - but I sure don't know how to know, nor how to fix it. Any ideas out there?!

Have a Canon MG6120 wireless multifunction printer. I rarely print anything from my laptop, but wanted to do that today. What I get is an error message that the printer is offline -- which it isn't; it's on. I tried going thru the setup on the printer, re-entering the SSID, and it said it was connected. Still same error that it's offline.

About a month ago, I did change the name of my router, but it never cause a problem with printing from my desktop, which I can still do. It's just the laptop that gets the "offline" error.

What do I need to do to make the laptop recognize that the printer is on?

A:Solved: Can't print to wireless printer

Never mind. I went thru the "Easy-Setup" on the printer a second time, and it was the charm. I have no idea why it worked the 2nd time and not the first, because after the 1st time, it said "Printer connected", or words to that effect, but when I tried to print, it still said the printer was offline. Oh, the vagaries of modern technology!

This is a 3-computer network using windows xp home
everything was fine until today when I wanted to print from the Toshiba laptop to the network printer, which is wireless through a router, & has been going great for a over a year. All of a sudden, today, it does not hook up to print and this error message is displayed:

Print Server
Error initializing output device

I have never seen that and have no clue what it is talking about, (thank you Bill Gates).
If you look in the printers, the correct printer says ready and there are no documents in the queue.

The printer works fine and the other computers can print to it.

Rebooting the computer and rebooting the router don't help.

I have a Canon Pixima MP560 that works fine on our laptop that runs Windows 7, but I cannot get the new laptop with Windows 8 to print.

When I access the Control Panel in Windows 8, it shows the printer with a green check that everything is OK, but when I tried to print, it said the printer was offline.

I went to the Canon website, and reinstalled the drivers. It looked like it was connecting, but then the error message indicated, ""printer is in an error state."

I went to the MS website, and ran their printer troubleshooter link. It said the problem was fixed. Now, the error message just says, "Printer is not responding." During this entire process, the printer is still connecting and responding just fine to another laptop that is running Windows 7.

I want to know if the ability to print from anywhere in the world to a printer. My initial setup i was thinking of was this:

The laptop pulls up the IP address of a wireless print server which is connected to a wireless router (where it gets its internet from). The person using the wireless laptop gets the IP address of the print server, some how configures the computer to print to THAT IP address, and the paper should come out of the printer. Correct? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

P.S. it would be nice if i could be told how much this will cost.

Can I still print to the wireless printer if I disconnect the Homegroup?

I do not wish to share files and see no point in joining a Homegroup.

Would removing the Homegroup cause internet connection problems?

Please advise. Thanks.

A:Can I Still Print to Wireless Printer if I Disconnect The Homegroup?

Sure, you could still share it.

To print to it from a computer you would simply open up the "Devices and Printers" page in explorer, click "Add a Printer" then the network/Bluetooth printer option. It may take a few seconds for your computer to discover your printer on the network but it should be there.

Alternatively, you could add the printer by clicking the "my printer isn't listed" button and entering the DNS name or IP address of the printer if it has a static IP. Or you could open up the "Network" page of explorer and install it from there. As you can see, you have options outside of Homegroup, albeit they may involve a few more steps.

Best of luck, be sure to post back your success or if you need additional help

And no, the homegroup has nothing to do with internet access

Hi lbucc,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you tried removing the the complete printer driver and install again. Kindly try to configure the printer using software/driver provided by the manufacturer.

You can also try disabling the security on the router as printers are not compatible with WEP or WPA security.

Also, check spooler service is running on the system properly. Please try the same and let us know if it helps.

Hello, I am happy to supply whatever tech info to resolve this issue which has defeated me for 6 months. I cannot connect my HP G60 laptop Vista to HP printer or Kodak. Having looked at old threads I am not the only person to run up against this very hard problem. I would prefer not to bin my Laptop and buy an apple mac for compatability issues with 3rd party software. My solution at present is using a stick and transferring to XP sony lap top which is a nightmare as both have different versions of microsoft office. I am new to this forum and apologise in advance if my thread post does not meet the standards required of this collective. many best wishes to all.

Hello all

I am having trouble connecting my verizon fios, dell 964 printer and my linksys wireless printer server. When I had comcast service it worked with moderate setup help from a computer technician. Now that I have changed to verizon, I can't seem to get it to work. Linksys will set me up with a third party for over $100 who specializes in multi systems... dell, verizion and linksys... and Verizon will do the same for the same amount of money. I have already paid a second compter technician to come in and set it up and he tells me that it can't be done and that verizon knows that there is a problem. I paid him over $170...Needless to say I'm looking to not spend another dime on this issue or I'll switch back to comcast.


A:Having trouble connecting fios with dell printer and wireless print server

You probably need to remove the previous wireless settings from the printer and run the set up program again.

I've just installed a wireless Belkin Print Server and having several problems. There are 3 computers, 2 on Windows 2000 and a lap top on XP. At first 2 of the printers could print fine. Then I downloaded the printdrivers for the HP 6110 on to the 3rd machine. Since then the drivers have been deleted from the other 2 computers - and the download version doesn't work. So now none of the computers can print.

I can reinstall the drivers - but what is to stop this happpening all over again?

The network is wireless (netgear) using BT Broadband. Can any one suggest what I can do to retsore the printer - incidentally after the pc drivers disappeared I checked the lap top and it was fine until it was switched on - it worked once then went teh same way as the others...Can anyone help?

A:Wireless Belkin print server appears to be disabling all the printer drivers

I can't get my new laptop to recognize my old Kodak 500 Photo Printer as a printer. It shows up as a "device" instead, and so I can't print to it. Has anyone else had this problem and found a fix?

A:Kodak Photo Printer not recognized as printer

What driver did you install? There is no Win 7 driver on the Kodak site for your printer but the Vista driver should work. There's also a firmware update that you may need to install but you won't be able to do that until you get the computer to recognize the printer. Kodak Photo Printer 500

A:Kodak All-in-one 5100 does not print with black ink

I cannot count how many issues I've had with all-in-ones, to the point I buy them like disposable dishes. Buy one cheap with ink, it runs out, chuck it (or sell it on ebay) and buy another one. I've even saved money (due to ink costs...) overall.

Also, stick to laser printers. Even though the cost of cartridges are higher compared to ink jet, they last 100x's longer. For example my old HP 6L is still using the same cartridge for nearly 3 years. Try that with an inkjet, I don't think you'd make 6 months even if you never used it. Btw the 6L is the only printer I've kept, and it's nearly 10 years old, even though I have a newer samsung color laser, I still use this reliable guy a lot.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

Hello Meandher!

When you try to print in word, does it go to the queue? What driver do you currently have?

Relevancy 56.76%

Most reviews I've been reading are negative. But their reasons are generally negative due to receiving the printer without a usb cable or that it's not bluetooth capable (whatever that is). Some say it prints like crap unless you use only Kodak paper, while others say the print quality is okay on other brands of paper. The ink is supposed to go much farther than others as well. So I'm wondering if that part is true, does the ink last much longer than what would be typical? Also, has anyone used non-Kodak paper in it and it works out acceptably? I don't print my photos at home, so that's not an issue. I just want the kids to be able to use it for classwork and for printing documents, so quality doesn't have to be out of this world. Input?

I am having the same problem. I have VISTA Ultimate SP1. I checked the logs and it tells me that Kodaksvs.exe crashed, then the print spooling system crashed. Kodak sent me a new USB cable, but no joy.Tried their cleaning program and reinstalling from the web but no joy. Requested that they post the entire download of the AIO installer so it could downloaded and installed instead of the web and they reacted as if they had no idea of what I was talking about. Since the problem couldn't be resolved by their standard procedure, which means they couldn't find it the manual, I asked for the next level tech help. The person who I was talking to put me on hold and then said his Supervisor wouldn't come out of the office. Then they blamed it on my motherboard and said I had to go to the MB manufacturer and download the proper drivers. My USB HP 1320 works fine, the USB mem sticks work fine, my WD MyBook works fine. Every thing works but the Kodak 5500 AIO wont work with USB. I was able to hook it up to my network with a print server from Cables to go and I can print to it, but cannot scan to the computer. Its definitely a Kodak software issue.

Hello and welcome Manuel. Now probably too obvious mate but is the printer showing up ticked as the default device in Printers and Devices? while 7 is up and running?.

I have a Kodak all-in-one printer ESP Originally its quot Home Center quot to UAC printer requires be Kodak disabled software always required confirmation from UAC that it was OK to continue which was annoying but I learned Kodak printer requires UAC to be disabled to live with it Today I allowed the Kodak software to update to the latest version and the software then stopped working The printer would still print from Word Excel and so on and the Home Center still requested permission to start from UAC but even once it was running it was still unusable because whatever I Kodak printer requires UAC to be disabled selected I just got an error message from it and I always got an APPCRASH message when I tried to close it The Home Center software is neded if you want to use the printer as a scanner or change any of the printer defaults Kodak say the only way to cure it is to turn UAC off permanently because their software is not compatible with UAC Sure enough this cures it - but I wanted to leave UAC on Have other people had the same problem and does anybody know if there is a better workaround How can Kodak advertise their software as being compatible with Windows Vista and if it is not compatible with UAC

Hello Telford.

Did the printer do everything you needed it to before you allowed the update?

Hi all! I have a Kodak ESP3 all in one printer. I purchased it about 5 years ago and after printing one test sheet it stopped working and I kept putting off it's repair. Now, 5 years later, I'm starting Uni and I really need it! I managed to removed the paper that was jammed and tried to print but with each printing attempt, an error message pops up saying there's a software communication error. I don't really know where to begin or what to do. The USB cable is plugged into the tower, so it's not that. Any help would be very much appreciated! Thanks

Need some help on this.

I have a Kodak Easyshare printer and it doesn't print anything I send to it.

As far as I know everything is correct. I'm figuring it's some kind of driver problem, but I don't even know where to start.

it's connected to a Computer running Win98SE

Really dont know where to start with my problem
Have been using my desk PC & Kodak esp 1.2 aio printer together quite happily for a couple of years.
Have now decided to use my printer instead with my Lenora T430 Thinkpad.
My printer recognises my router signal but when I try to add the printer to laptop devices/printer etc it shows a correct picture of my printer as if it is an installed device, but nothing will print.
When I right click on picture to give instruction to make sure it is default setting for printer, that default setting option isnt there, it starts the options with start scan, start profiles, start properties etc.
Its almost as if the laptop only recognises the printer as a scanner.
Also printer only seems to be installed as a short cut?

Anyone know where i can get a driver for this printer?

A:Kodak Pro 1400 Printer 64 bit Driver

Kodak Tech support tells me there isn't one. He suggested installing the printer on a 32-bit machine (which apparently does work) and sharing it.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Did you setup the network security with the correct pass-phrase on the printer?

Try running AdvancedIPScanner, you'll be able to see all your network devices.

I purchased the Kodak Easyshare 5300 Printer and when the printer is connected to the harddrive the external wireless card gives an error message of unknown devise and the internet no longer works. If you disconnect the printer USB cable and restart the computer the external wireless card is recognized. Any suggestions on what is causing this and how to fix it?

Have you tried changing the USB ports that the printer and the Wireless card are connected too? The computer should have several USB ports available.

Also post the specs on your computer and the operating system you are using.

I have been unable to print using Bluetooth connection. When I use the Kodak Printer Dock Configuration Utility (must be hard wired with USB cable), and I select Bluetooth as the preferred commo device, the Dock reverts automatically back to WiFi. Has anyone ever connected with Bluetooth and successfully printed any pics? Would appreciate any assistance possible ... Kodak not very helpful.

Hi robertmcp and welcome to Vista Forums

Not sure what you mean by this error code, but here is a link to the Kodak support page for your printer/scanner: KODAK EASYSHARE 5300 All-in-One Printer Support. It is possible that you may solve the error by updating the driver and/or the firmware via this link, but take note of the warning (firmware upgrade) and download time (driver): KODAK EASYSHARE 5300 All-in-One Printer Downloads and Upgrades. If you choose the firmware upgrade, then please note that you carry this out AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Windows XP, 384MB RAM, AMD Athlon Processor 805 MHz.

Have operated this system for 8 months after purchasing Kodak ESP AiO-3
until it would not scan.
Receiving Error 1-2036.
Kodak "Help" after lengthy discussion, requires I increase RAM to 512MB.
The carton information at the point of purchase indicated 128MB RAM required. Not 512MB.
Kodak sent a new installation disk Version 4.2. No improvement and Windows dialog box says the software is not recognized by Windows.
Most of the time, installation is OK until installing Printer Drivers.
Thanks in advance for any info available.

When I switch on the printer I get an error mesage 3533 saying there is a paper jam. I have checked the paper path and there is no jammed paper. If I press the OK button the printer loads a sheet of paper and passes it through the printer. I have checked the Kodak Support web site for this error and carried out their suggested solutions without any success. I have unistalled the printer software and reinstalled it - still without success. I am at a loss what to do next- throw it away perhaps!

A client is interested in having external networking ports available for printing to internal, XP-attached shared workstation printers.

Basically, they want to print to external IP address and have IIS push that data to a shared printer at someone's workstation. Ideally we would set up six or eight of these, each with a different port on the public IP.

Any suggestions?

I'm working at an office where when you hit the Print Screen button, it causes a printout in addition to the normal copy to clipboard. I just want to copy to clipboard without wasting toner and paper. It can't be a program on the computer as it's clean with just Windows 8.1

It actually happens on all the machines (whether Windows 7, 8, or 8.1). Is it a program installed on the server? Is it a setting in Windows? How do I stop this behavior?

A:Print Screen button will print to the printer! how to stop

By definition the print screen function only sends the image to the clipboard so if the printer is also involved then something else -- some other software installed on your machine -- is the culprit here.

One way to find out what it is is by unhooking the printer and then watching the screen to see what error messages pop up when trying to use the print screen function.
