Troubleshooting

Verify sign in profile failed

The username and password specified in the sign in profile does not match that of the printer. Or no password has been set on the printer.

RESOLUTION: Set password on the printer and make sure it matches the sign in profile.

Sign in to printer failed

The username and password specified in the sign in profile does not match that of the printer. Or no password has been set on the printer.

RESOLUTION: Set password on the printer and make sure it matches the sign in profile.

No Printix Client acts as proxy on this network

There is no Printix Client on this network to facilitate the communication from Printix Cloud to the printer.

RESOLUTION: Bring a computer with Printix Client online on the printer’s network.

Changed Go configuration does not take effect

If you change or modify a Go configuration, it will not take effect on the printer until you apply the changes to the printer.

RESOLUTION: To apply the changes you must Update the Go configuration on the printer.

Printix Go install status says failed

On the Printix Go tab on the Printer properties page the install Status says failed.

RESOLUTION: Update the printer firmware to the latest version and try again.

HP Access Control web page settings discrepancy

If you sign in to the HP printer’s web page, select Security and then select Access Control, you will see the text:

  • Some security settings on this page are unavailable because they are managed by Printix Go.

This means, that the settings shown on the HP printer’s web page, are not necessarily reflecting what is being applied via the Printix Go configuration. The printer’s touchscreen control panel, should reflect what has been configured with Printix Go.
