I have installed several printers like Brother wireless and HP Color LaserJet, and they worked fine on Windows 8. After upgraded to Windows 8.1 Preview, They are recognized by Windows but appear “not connected” status and can’t be reconnected. When I try to print doc file, a error “There are no more endpoints available from the endpoint mapper” message pops up.
Windows 8.1 update comes with 3D printing support but is lacking of 2D printing improvement. Many people have the exact same problem after Windows 8.1 upgraded with compatible drivers. Here is a way to fix printing endpoint insufficiency issues.
* Right-click the Desktop screen’s bottom-left corner, and choose “Control Panel” from the menu.
* Within Control Panel, go to Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers.
* Right click on one of the printers, and select “Troubleshoot” option. It will fix the problem automatically.
