tgwright,

Does this error code appear on the printer itself or on the PC?

tgwright,

Thank you for the additional info. There may be a problem with the software installed to the PC preventing the change. Try downloading and running the print and scan doctor located here:

It can fix a lot on its own and if not give a better idea of what is going on.
Best of Luck!

tgwright,

Thank you for the additional info. With the print and scan doctor not locating any corrupted software/driver problems its time to look to the operating system itself. Others who have had similar issues with the same error indicate a corrupted registry key causing the problem:

Beware these solutions indicate changing registry info (very dangerous if you do not know what you are doing). If you are not comfortable in the registry or have never been there before I would suggest seeking additional support in some fashion (Microsoft/Local IT/PC Repair service/etc).

Best of Luck!

Thanks for responding. I have no idea how to make the registry changes described. I also have no idea how to code for my printer.

 

I won't attempt this.

I needed to print a pdf document and it would only offer the old printer as an option so I was now faced with returning the new printer to the store or getting into regedit. I tried the least invasive cure in the list. I changed permission in the registry. That worked.

 

Thanks very much for the assist.

I was reluctant to try regedit, but when I was unable to print a pdf document because the new printer was not recognized I was desrarate. I edired the permissions, and taht worked. Thanks for all your help.
