How to fix “Print to OneNote”, “OneNote cannot find a page on which to insert your printout”

2014/07/16 2 comments
  1. This error kept popping up for me on OneNote 2013, but I gather it is a classic.
  2. I should have just taken the error message seriously and literally: Could I do better than OneNote and find a page where OneNote says it cannot?
  3. First, to find out where I and OneNote are supposed to be looking for this page, go to File / Options/ Send To OneNote and check which “print to “location you have set.
  4. This one here looks obviously suspicious (and does not exist – one would wish still when this location goes out of scope this could be flagged with a more transparent warning):

  6. Change the location :

  8. to one that actually exists:

  10. or better maybe, for lack of a more transparent error checking if page goes out of scope, chose one of the other,  hopefully more robust options: image

Windows 7 cannot connect to shared printer (error code 0x0000000d)

2012/02/28 4 comments
  1. Problem here: Dell MFP1125 on XP 32-bit gets shared and discovered from Windows 7 (64-bit), but not connected to from Windows 7 (error code 0x0000000d). Elsewhere, many people encounter this error, in a variety of configurations (printers, Windows).
  2. Resolution:
    1. on Windows 7, from the command line, issue “net use LPT1: \\yourservername\yourprinter /persistent:yes”
    2. In devices and printers, from the add printer wizard, add a local printer on LPT1 (installs driver), print your job to that (for it to get redirected to the shared printer).
  3. If you lose your printing capability (“net use” shows “unavailable”), delete the local printer, reissue the “net use” line above, and reinstall the local printer.

Printing Problems in the LRC

  1. One problem
    1. Printer printing garbage like this? CIMG0002 (2)
    2. To fix it, try power-cycling the printer
  2. Another problem
    1. Received this error, repeatedly with students trying from different LC computers.
    2. printer-problem
    3. Until I told her to save the document (I thought she was authoring it), log out and log in on a different computer. Then  miraculously she could print.
    4. Now I am left wondering:  Did she open the document, maybe from Moodle, in her web browser, and the MS-Word browser plugin is not set up to print too our printer. Would be not a solution, but a workaround for this situation.
