Hi Pearl. I have a docuprint cp105b printer that stopped working. It was fine yesterday, but oday there's an error sign on the printer. i tried following one of your colleagues suggestion of changing the yellow print cartridge, etc but it didn't make a difference. Any suggestions?

Hi there. My name is*****'m sorry to hear that you are having a problem with your printer. Can you tell me please what the error message is that you see on the printer? Is the error message displayed on the printer itself or on the computer or both?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hi Alison. Sorry for not getting back to you earlier. The printer started working properly again, but has now returned to its previous error on the computer and is no longer working.
Expert:  TheGeekGal replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry to hear that the error recurred. Can you tell me please what the exact error message is? Is the error message displayed only on the printer itself or on only the computer or on both the printer and the computer? I would recommend that we check to make sure that you have latest version of the printer driver. Can you tell me please what your operating system is?

If you're not sure, you should be able to use one of these links to find out. Or, if you prefer I can connect to you remotely and work on this while you watch.

For Windows

Can you click this link and tell me what you see please?


From the Apple menu, choose About This Mac. Your version of OS X appears directly below “OS X

I will also check for any firmware updates that there may be for the printer, while I wait for your response.

Hi Alison. It's only on the printer itself. I have windows 10 and realised that once I'd upgraded to windows 10 from windows 7, i also no longer received the icon on the computer when printing, informing me of how much ink in each cartridge was available.
Expert:  TheGeekGal replied 1 year ago.

Ahhh. Ok. Thank you for that information. Please give me just a moment to research and see if there are any compatibility issues. Hopefully there will be a software driver specifically for Windows 10.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you
Expert:  TheGeekGal replied 1 year ago.

You're very welcome. There is a driver for windows 10. You can download it here. Once thi sis installed and you have rebooted both the printer and the computer, your problem should be resolved. You may want to uninstall the printer, restart, the pc, and then install the new driver to avoid any potential conflicts.

Please let me know how this works for you. If you need clarification on any of the steps or have additional questions I am happy to assist. I am committed to working with you until the problem is fully resolved.

You can simply view it or you can save it to your computer for future reference. There is an entire section on troubleshooting in the manual. I am currently reviewing it for you as well as the Fuji Xerox online troubleshooting guides. I hope to have an answer for you shortly.

I apologize but I am going to need to opt out and see if another expert can help. You may need to call for service on this.
