    I have a BJC-6500 printer connected to my machine. OS is Windows 2000 proffessional. Printer works fine for users with admin privileges.
    Printer will not work with Power users and lower security levels.
    Can someone point me in the right direction to rectify this problem.

    Try start/settings/printers, right click on the printer, choose properties, on the security tab, under user, if those users aren't list use the add button to add them. Not sure, just a guess

    I have logged in as administrator and checked BrianF's suggestion. Still no solution.

    Make sure you have the printer shared, this from help in win2k

    To set or remove permissions for a printer

    Open Printers.
    Right-click the printer for which you want to set permissions, click Properties, and then click the Security tab.
    Do one of the following:
    To change or remove permissions from an existing user or group, click the name of the user or group.
    To set up permissions for a new user or group, click Add. In Name, type the name of the user or group you want to set permissions for, click Add, and then click OK to close the dialog box.
    In Permissions, click Allow or Deny for each permission you want to allow or deny, if necessary. Or, to remove the user or group from the permissions list, click Remove.
    Notes

    To change device settings, you must have the Manage Printers permission. For information about printing security permissions, see Related Topics.
    To open Printers, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Printers.
    To view or change the underlying permissions that make up Print, Manage Printers, and Manage Documents, click the Advanced button.
    A printer must be shared in order for the permission settings to affect the users and groups listed.
    You can also view the permissions assigned to you by clicking the group you belong to on the Security tab. For information on finding out what group you belong to, see Related Topics.
