How To Work With AirPrint on Windows? Tips and Tricks

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

The emergence of wireless technology has become a fad. This has been the case because besides the fact that it’s convenient, it’s also exciting. Who wouldn’t be thrilled when you can surf the net anywhere in the world and now, you can print your files without even connecting your computer to the printer with the use of nettlesome cables, or installing and configuring printer drivers on your computer repeatedly.

If we are enjoying the power of wireless web surfing, today, there’s so much reason to be happy, as wireless printing has come to life. And when we talk about wireless printing, today, it only means one thing: the AirPrint. AirPrint is a service that allows you to print documents, emails, web contents and photos wirelessly over a Wi-Fi connection. You can do it by sending your files directly to printers—given you’re on the same Wi-Fi connection—to do their print job. Although AirPrint works only with Apple iOS device and with a few HP printers, today, the rant among Windows users has been silenced. Now, Windows (Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP) users can also enjoy it.

But how does this work on Windows? Here are tips you might find helpful in enabling AirPrint service on Windows.

Before you can set it up on Windows, a few requirements must be made first. iTunes 10.1, which can be directly downloaded from Apple must be installed on your computer. Network printer sharing must be enabled on your computer. And make sure that you have all the administrative privileges to enable/disable services on your computer. And remember that Airprint wireless printing is only possible if you’re within the same Wi-Fi connection—that is your device and the printer used.

When all of the requirements are done, you may now install the AirPrint extension on your PC. There are a few different installers you can find in the web today. There’s a simple from Javox. There’s Elpamsoft AirPrint Installer, and others. Once an AirPrint installer is downloaded and file is extracted, run the .exe file. And installation is ready to go. In case a Firewall is run on your computer, set AirPrint for Windows to Allow access. Once setup is done, try printing a document (considering both devices are under the same Wi-Fi connection).

Although the process of setting up AirPrint on your PC differs depending on your installer, setting it up is not a problem as most installers come with simple instructions. And while it used to be very difficult to find in the net tips on how to work such service on Windows, now, you can just type AirPrint on Windows on your browser and you’ve got all the control over wireless printing.

Most Common Canon Printer Problems and How to Fix Them

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

Printers are essential to any space, from school, homes, offices and most especially to enterprise level companies and high grade printing facilities. Canon is one brand people trust because of its efficiency and of course great variety of products for various types of printing needs. Sometimes your life hangs on an efficient printer for projects, corporate information, releases and high grade image printing. Having Canon printer problems would be a nightmare and so what do we do to fix the most common problems that we usually encounter?

  • The first thing you have to do when you have a new printer is to make sure that the printer driver matches the Canon printer itself. Otherwise, there will be a lot of errors that you will encounter and so you might want to purge the documents first and reset your printer until all the unnecessary conditions are removed. This is essential to have a smooth printing process with your Canon printers.
  • Printer paper issues- what you can do is to restart your computer, then restart your printer and start making a test page to know if the printer is well calibrated for your purposes. If you have a paper jam, Canon printers would usually have a button designated to release a jammed paper but if it does not work, open your device and guide the printer and the paper gently. Do not tug too much as it may damage the device.

Look at your guide for proper paper feeding. Canon printers have marks and designated alignments to know the right position of your paper for the size of the paper. You can fed the paper on the tray but sometimes, there are printers like the Dot matrix that can be fed like a typewriter style and so you have to know the settings that you need in order to minimize printer jamming.

  • Always make sure that the printer ink is always at good levels because when you print with printer inks that are clogged and almost empty, the quality of printing especially for photos and colored projects are going to suffer. Check your Canon printer ink levels every now and then. Use only high quality Canon ink for better printer performance.
  • Cleaning your Canon print head is essential to prevent your document from having the unnecessary smears and dirt that could ruin your project or important document.
  • Another Canon printer problem is when the printer is not responding, if that is the case, check if your connections are placed well and verify if your cables are on the right spots. Sometimes it may be the printer itself that has a problem.

Canon Printer problems can be avoided by following the right printing procedures, making sure that the printer ink levels are right, the printer facility is clean and at the right temperature, and your paper is positioned well. Also check your connections and drivers to ensure that you save on precious paper and ink as well as minimize hassles and Canon printer  problems.
