Turning On Wireless Printer

 
0
 

Hi, I recently got a wireless printer which is downstairs and I want to make a program that turns the printer on/off.

If anyone knows how I can do this, that would be great. I may be able to do this in C# if necessary.

I will post more details on the printer if needed.

Thanks :)

Are you trying to switch on / off (the power supply) the device ?

Yes, I want to make a program with an on/off button that allows me to turn the machine on and off :)

If the device is switched of how it will respond to your program ?

I assumed because it is on standby there would be a method of getting it to respond. Simply trying to print something doesn't turn it on.

I actually only need it to switch off, as when I need to turn it on I will printing from it anyway.

How would I get it to turn off?

Why do you need a program? Doesn't it have a sleep value you can reduce and get it to go in standby mode? What model is the printer?

That will depend on the model of the device and the device responds to what commands.
