Autel scan tools cannot sent files directly to a wireless printer by default. 

Instead, you need to install software onto a computer which the scan tool will use as a gateway to print. 

Installing the MaxiSys software suite from the Autel

The drivers for the Autel j2534 and PC Link for wireless printing are included in the MaxiSys software suite.

MaxiSys software suite downloaded using the following link:

Troubleshooting Print setup

  • Is the Autel unit on the same wireless network as the Computer with the install software?
  • Verify the MaxiSys software suite is running? The easiest way to check the system tray at the bottom right on the task bar for the Maxisys Printer Icon.
    It is supposed to auto run on start up but some antivirus programs and security settings will prevent this. If the program is not running, start it and try to print again.

  • Is there a current, working version of Adobe Acrobat on the computer with the Autel PC-Link software?
  • If this is the first time trying to print and the Autel is failing to find a computer with installed PC-Link software, restart both the PC and Autel and try again.
  • If you are still unable to connect to any computers for printing, you may need to contact your local IT tech to ensure your tablet and PC are connected and there is nothing blocking the connection

 

Printing from the Autel MaxiSys
