Photo Printer Software
Whenever new photo printer software is installed on a computer system, it must be reiterated that, in order for that new software to function, the computer must have the right kind of drivers installed in the operating system. Otherwise, no matter how good the software is, you will be unable to get the printouts. There are many problems that can be encountered when the wrong drivers are installed in the operating system.
- Reinstalling the driver
- Find the correct driver
- Find the updated version
Reinstalling the driver
One of the most common mistakes when installing drivers for photo printer software is installing the driver the wrong way. Although majority of printer drivers have a step-by-step guide for installing the driver, sometimes the driver can be faulty thus resulting in a malfunctioning communication between the operating system and the photo printer itself. Before replacing the driver, it is best to try to reinstall the same driver that came with the printer system into the operating system. Make sure to follow all instructions and recommended settings to avoid any mistakes when reinstalling the drivers.
Find the correct driver
If the incorrect driver is installed then there is no way that the photo printer software can even identify that the photo printer is attached to the computer. This means that there is no way these two can communicate with each other and there is no way to produce prints through that printer. To check if the right printer driver is installed, check the printer manual for the make and model of the printer. After this, find a corresponding printer driver that is compatible with the make and model of your printer. In some cases, the driver is compatible with other printers in the same category as your printer, this will not, in any way affect the printer. As long as the right driver is installed, there is no reason for your printer not to work.
The last, most common reason why photo printer software cannot print out photos is because the driver is outdated. Majority of software today have a way to easily check if the software is the latest version available. Look for the update button in the photo printer software to make sure that the operating system as the latest version of the printer driver. Should there be no update button, there is a list of updated printer drivers listed on the manufacturer’s website; all of which are available for download.
