Question about Sony DPP-FP50 Thermal Photo Printer
I was actually a bit surprised that you were able to run it using windows 7. Sony did not release any specific driver designed for windows 7 operating systems and this can cause an issue to printing operations if you have used older drivers. Try running the main printer application on compatibility mode and see if it resolves your issue. Right click on the main application shortcut and click on properties. Go to compatibility tab and choose a lower operating system (e.g. Windows XP service pack 2). Save the changes by clicking on OK and test the printer. If this won't work, I would strongly suggest you uninstall the printer and removed all instances of it in Printers and Devices. Remove all applications associated with it (uninstall). reboot the computer and if the Printer came with an installation CD, used it to setup the printer. Make sure that the printer is plugged off the pc when you run the setup. Plug it only when prompted during the installation procedure. This is important to avoid driver conflicts.
Post here if it works for you or not.
