1 Restart Windows 10 print service
2 Uninstall Windows 10 updates

The connection to our printers allows us to physically capture everything we do on our computers, this ranges from text to graphics and other objects, but in some cases when trying to establish the connection with the printer we find the error 0x00000bc4 with the legend " No printer found." This prevents working with our files and one of the causes of the error is when a third-party printer driver or service has a direct impact on the use of our printer..

 

If we encounter this type of error, we will not be able to use our printer and this can slow down our tasks. That is why it is useful to know solutions that we can apply when we want to repair problems with the printer. The good news is that correcting this error is really simple and at TechnoWikis we have the solution for you.
