Had a phaser 3330 for some years and it finally died on me.
Bought a replacement, plugged ithe existing usb cable, inserted the cd and thought everything was Ok. Press foir atest print on the machine - no problem. Try to do it via the PC and it does nothing but it shows a DHCP error on the printer. No idea what that is. Have tried deleting and reinstalling but no change.
So I have a brand new printer but can't use it
Any ideas( other than but another brand!) How do I stop/solve this DHCP?
Fisrt of all you must know what class of IP you have in your network environment. For this open a command promt and type "ipconfig/all" and press Enter. You will have an window like this:
so as per this info if, for exapmle, the computer IP is 192.168.0.165, you must setup your printer IP in the same class of IP's (eg. 192.168.0.166). Of course it will be better to ping that IP (also in a CMD prompt) so that there is no other device with the same IP with the printer network cable unpluged. If there is no answer from other device, you can setup that IP to your printer.
