Printer Restarting A Print Job フォローする
We run ~3 printers off a single Windows 7 64 bit PC - which is the only setup experiencing this issue.
Printing from BarTender 9.4SR3 to Zebra printers, including a 170Xi4, the printers currently connected through a USB-LPT cable (though they were previously connected USB-USB with the same issues). I have the 7.3 printer drivers.
Every now and then, the printer will stop printing, pause for a bit, and then restart printing [b]from the beginning of the print job[/b]. This is extremely wasteful to resources and expensive materials. How could this possibly be happening? The print spooler must be re-sending this data, as it would not have been stored locally in the printer for that long. The user of this PC has disabled Bi-Directional Support in the printer properties due to past issues. Should this be re-activated?
The issue has been happening since we switched from a windows XP desktop to a Windows 7 x64 laptop using a docking station. I have switched out docking stations, etc. The only thing I can think to try next is upgrading to 10.01, which I'm really trying to avoid at this point with this particular user. If it's a spooling issue though, that won't have an effect. grr
