Printer problems

  Hetti 13:14 19 Nov 2004

I have a Sharp AJ1805 printer and each time I try to use it I get message "printer is not connected check leads and plugs", the printer is properly connected, when I unplug it then try it again it works fine but the next time I need it (say the next day) I have to unplug/plug in again for it to work.
When I check control panel it is listed, but in printers properties there is nothing in there at all. I was going to uninstall/reinstall but I have lost the software.

Is there anything I can do without the software?

Try searching th internet there are pleanty of sites for drivers. I searched using google and 'sharp AJ1805 drivers', produced a list of sites with drivers, you will need to know your operating system before down loading the driver for it. Some drivers require the equipment to be connected after the driver is installed some before. Also reboot after removing/installing.

Try click here for a driver.....There are several hopeful sights on google if you type.... sharp aj1805 .... including manuals for some Sharp printers.

If there is a self-test or reset button try that, sometimes printers will become "difficult" if the power switch is turned off before the printer has completed a job
