|Hi, I finally got to the PC and tried all the above suggestions, nothing worked.|
1- The PC recognized the printer in device manager as PCI Simple Communication Controller whih the xclamation mark.
2- When I plugged it in and turned it on it came up as unknown device.
All that stuff really puzzled me. I was running short on time tonight so I kept removing it from the device manager and kept trying different things...all of a sudden I finally got the printer to register in the control panel as a USB printer...AMAZING....but when I tried to print a test page it said the printer was off-line and kept appearing at the taskbar as unknown USB device.
To make a long story short, I kept changing settings and finally the printer worked fine. What did I do to fix it? I really don't know, I was just determined not to let this printer defeat me. I changed so many settings and finally it worked. Hopefully it will stay working....touch wood!
I guess the moral of this story is...use determination and keep trying and maybe things will eventually work out.
Thanks a bunch for all the great responses!
Hopefully my advice will help you...Please post back with your results....thanks
