I seem to have remembered, I went to %appdata% to delete some left over files but, I think the last time I had to remove this was on 7!  Some one can correct me if this is not true anymore! Cheers Heather

Hi Shirley,

I am not sure about other operating systems, but with Windows 10, I went to programs and features and used the uninstall feature for Avast.  It is not too accessible, but I believe if you run the uninstall from programs and features, if you press enter on one of the inaccessible buttons, the rest is automated and the uninstall completes.  Give that a try and see what happens.

Monte and All:

The printer is an HP laser jet 1012 and the scanner is a Xerox 7600.

I got the Windows 7 in 2011 and think I may have gotten the printer and scanner, then but am not sure.

I don't need detailed formatting.

I am not in a school or business situation and printing is fairly simple things like grocery lists, letters, etc. I do not scan books and scanning is mostly snail mail etc.

Now, if you need to do detailed formatting of print material, this may not work.
But, if the formatting is all done within your document; it's fine.
How old is your scanner?

Could you post what you find out about the controls? I'm finding this
thread of great interest since, apparently, I can't use the HP
LaserJet printer and Xerox scanner that I have on Windows 7 on the
Windows 10 Pro and have to switch computers to print and scan. I'm

Holly,
 
From what I understand, when you print in black & white it requires a certain amount of ink from the color cartridge to print.  So, you should be okay in printing an occasional file, doesn't have to be very much, but just enough to move some ink.  If I'm wrong, someone please jump in and correct me!

Hi Margaret,
 
Good news and not so good news.  I was not able to find updated drivers for the HP Laser Jet 1012, but I did find the Windows 10 driver for your Xerox 7600.  I used my Win-10 computer to do all the searching so the website would definitely see that I was looking for Win-10 drivers specifically.  Below is the Dropbox direct download link with the website I got the driver from in the zipped folder.
 
 
Sure hope this helps you out.

Re: Wanting an accessible laser printer scanner copier

Hi Holly,

 

I think you are referring to a color laser printer in this message.

The color laser printer, like the black and white   laser printer does not dry out and clog if no used for a while.

Like the b’w, the color laser can sit for quite  a while wihtoutprinting, and will print as usual when sent a job.

Laser printers, like photocopiers, use a toner cartridge, not an ink tank.

I think low end  color laser printers start around 250 u s dollars.

It has numerous buttons, a little wheel (which uses actions with the buttons, or key strokes from the computer).  It copies, prints, fax, and can be used wireless (which I didn’t bother to set up). 

 

I purchased it online and I only paid $89.00 for it.  That was about three years ago. 

 

The ink is in a drumlike container which is easily removed and changed.  I paid $15 for the ink.  Changed once since I have had it.  It can be set up to use just black or color. Don’t know if it is still available.

Yes, that's why the suggestion of checking them out in person if possible.  My wife is sighted and can't stand the touch screens either.  Whenever the need has arisen for a new all in one we will go to 3 or 4 stores that sell this kind of equipment to see what is available.  It's damn sad but, the button types are slowly vanishing if not almost entirely gone now.

Carolyn, you might try deleting the contact, then re-entering it. If that doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you. Good luck.

Accessible laser printer, copier, scanner

Holly
 

Margaret and others with interest in this subject.

The Xerox B215.:

Lost your original email, but just talked to Amazon accessibility and this particular model does just have a touch pad.

I found the number for 'accessible products hotline' and it is closed now, but will call tomorrow if they are available on weekends. Next week, if not.

Here is the number for the accessible products hotline.

Re: Wanting an accessible laser printer scanner copier

Mike and All:

I'm not 100% sure that there aren't drivers that will allow me to use the printer and scanner on the Windows 10 Pro.

Before I got the Win 10 last fall, I thought Microsoft had some tool where one could check and see if existing Win 7 printers and scanners would work on Windows 10 Pro. Someone posted a link that sounded like it would give me the information, but I couldn't get the information. I'm pretty sure the tech who installed the new computer checked the companies' web sites, but I'm sure he told me the printer and scanner wouldn't work on Windows 10 Pro and he set things up so I can continue to use the printer and scanner with the Windows 7 machine.

I don't print a lot and primarily just scan snail mail , so the setup worked okay until a recent project when having a printer and scanner on the new machine would have been a big help.

Since I'd rather not buy new equipment if I don't have to earlier

I looked on the HP site to try to find out if there was a driver for the printer that might solve the problem, but wasn't successful in finding anything about Windows 10 and my model. I'm going to try again and will try to get their tech support. I think I remember seeing something about HP tech support not helping if one doesn't have the serial number, but I could well be wrong.

Do you know if Microsoft has some compatibility tool like I thought there was or what to look for on the HP and Xerox sites?

Thanks,

Margaret

Hi Margaret,
Is it possible to get and install updated drivers so your current equipment will work with Windows 10?
Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.
I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.

Holly,
Could you post what you find out about the controls?  I'm finding this
thread of great interest since, apparently, I can't use the HP LaserJet
printer and Xerox scanner that I have on Windows 7 on the Windows 10 Pro
and have to switch computers to print and scan.  I'm considering an
all-in-one and would prefer buttons.
Thanks,
Margaret
