A FAQ we get involves installing printers or resolving problems with printers.
So here goes… follow these steps to successfully install / re-install your printer.
Step 1: Do NOT attach the USB cable to the computer. (yet)
Step 2: Run the disc you got with the printer. Follow the onscreen instructions.
Step 3: When the program asks you to connect the printer – now’s the time to plug it in.
For wireless / WiFi printers. The best way is usually to install as a “Wired” printer 1st as detailed above. Once it has completed run the disc a second time with the cable connected and it will detect this and offer you different instructions regarding configuring the wireless side of things. Follow instructions.
Footnote: Once complete it’ll probably suggest that you register. Do this only if you enjoy receiving junk mail. If not click “No – and don’t remind me again”.
