  • Cumulative Update KB5005565 (printing)

    Got a call yesterday that Dymo Label Writers were no longer printing on a network.
    I confirmed problem here and uninstalled KB5005565 from only the server.

    After getting workstation to print, reinstalled KB5005565 on server and workstation would no longer print.
    Uninstalled again KB5005565 from server and workstation instantly printed.
    This did not affect the main default printer.

    Uninstalling and installing KB5005535 may have removed a non-related server from going through the firewall so added it again.

    Hi Mike,

    Printers have really been a sore spot the last couple of months (what am I saying... last 30 years). I have a couple dozen on my network and about half have gone down recently with losing connection, not found, won't print, etc... The latest problem is the ports tab in the printer properties is blank. All the ports disappeared.

    I have tried re-installing them, changing drivers, updating firmware, swapping printers throughout the building, changing the IP address, etc. but nothing seemed to work. Printers would be paperweights for days trying to find the solution. I had two different IT firms remote into my network for hours and eventually gave up and said they can't fix it.

    They all used to have DHCP reserved IP addresses but lately it seems to fix them I need to remove the reservation, delete the printer completely from the server and workstation and then re-add it using the hostname (NPIxxxxxx).

    These are all HP printers so far. I have a Canon plotter and a few Dymo Label Writers but so far no problems with them. Also any printer directly connected to a PC works fine. The problem is always a network connected printer.

    Printers continue to prove they were the worst invention by the human race. Necessary to have but a pain to keep working.

      Longer. Don't you remember what it was like getting ANY peripheral to work correctly - or just work, period - during the days of the "MS-DOS clones?"

        Actually 30+ years ago I had less problems with Wordstar 4 and a Epson LQ-850 printer on DOS than I do today on Win7/10.

            30 years ago I was in the military, and if it didn't have a serial port, you didn't use it. All you had to do was keep track of RS232/485, and which pin this vendor thought DTR/CTS should be on.
