|Have you tried to reinstall the printer after removing it first? |
Not sure of the procedure for a 1394 printer connection. However, when using USB connections you normally at least need to install the printer drivers prior to connecting the printer. If you have an installation CD I suggest you follow the installation prompts provided there.
Sometimes it become necessary to run a registry cleaner to remove remnants of the old install.
Try the registry cleaner module in CCleaner. Google for CCleaner. It is a free download and the cleaner module is one of the best around. I suggest you remove the printer and reboot. Then run both the cleaner and registry modules. If you wish you can backup any changes made to the registry for restoration if needed. I haven't ever had to restore though.
