Trying to print a 15 page word document but the printer keeps printing only one page repeatedly even though i have clicked print all as well as pages 1-15


I've had similar issues and here's what I found was the quickest and easiest solution. Select, cut and paste the entire document into a new document with a different a name. Sometimes the document format gets corrupted while typing.

I have wep printronix p7500 line printer. I haven't uses the printer since last 24-30 month. when i print a text file using edit.exe. it print quality is very fade. I brought a new ribbon for this printer....


I'm guessing the carrier solvent for the ink has evaporated. (Ribbon is old and dried out - even the new one) In the past, i have sprayed WD40 on unspooled ribbons and rewound them to bring ribbons back to life but that can be messy with spotty results. Suggest you buy direct fro Printronix.....

Ribbon not printing correctly on new labels have a sato CL412E and we are using the same ink ribbons we always use (premium wax/resin ribbon TRX-55) and we just started using new labels from a new company...


The ribbon / label combination usually doesn't have anything to do with print position of the fields on the label. Is the quality/durability of the print that you are seeing on the new labels the same as before ? With a glossier stock print quality should actually be better. This will at least tell you that the ribbon is correct for the new label stock. Is the new label a different size than previous labels ? That could account for the fields not printing in the correct position if the printer is not calibrating correctly on the new size.

Not sure if this will help but may give some ideas...

HP 1510 all in one printer won't print black.


It might be the cable ribbon to the black cartridge. If thats the case see if there are any rips in the line itself.

Black ink problem with printout on hp7780


Always try replacing the ink cartridges first.

It sounds like the print heads in the 7780 are bad. Don't confuse the ink cartridges with print heads. The cartridges fit inside the print heads. You will need to change the heads. Here is a link to HP's how-to.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00841890&tmp_track_link=ot_faqs/top_issues/en_us/c00841890/loc:1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=2512010

Could have the same problem with the Dell.

My printer displays ribbon error. but there is ribbon inside


you can change which ribbon type is installed in the printing preferences of the printer driver.
make sure you have the right ribbon type selected.
CYMTKO vs. CYMTO, etc.

There is also a button that will auto detect the ribbon right underneath the pulldown menu.

Greenish tint to black type


This is a dot matrix printer. The way they work is there is a print head that has a heap of little needles with flat tops on them, and they push out at high speed against the ink ribbon, and the ink ribbon is pushed against the paper to make a dot. Then the pin is retracted, spring loaded.
Pretty amazing that it can work that fast, eh!
So the only thing that can influence the ink colour on your paper is the ribbon.
Are you using original Lexmark ribbons? If so, my recommendation would be to take a sample print to where you got the printer from and get them to demonstrate the print quality of one of these printers, then compare it with yours.
Dot Matrix printers will not produce print as black or as high a quality as a laser printer, for example.
Perhaps the ink ribbons you are using have a less than top quality ink in them, and there is a bit of "bleeding" going on - it can only be the ribbon.
Another thing you can experiment with to get the best print quality is the print head gap - there will (should) be an adjustment, and getting that right will make a difference to print quality.
Hope this helps you.

POOR RINT QUALITY ON 4 PART INVOICE/DELIVERY PAPER


SRibbon wont effect multi part forms, well it will only effect the top one. Most dot matrix printers also have a impression adjustment, sounds like you need to increase yours.. it brings the print head closer to the platen.

It could also be the paper, not having much carbon to print the next part.

I've also notice you ask a lot and suggest you may need more than simple one line free answers.

Font problem will be program or print driver or even possible printer default settings (read printers user manual) .ie.font used by software is probally not supported on 2nd line so a default font is used

Once you have read manula you will find and know how to change print quality ie draft or LQ.

After reading manual you should also discover you can do print quality adjustments via the oprint driver.

Print quality is very poor


I used to use an LX300 and have never had this problem. I'm not sure what unclear means so I will just do some guessing. Clarity of the print depends on 3 things, software, printhead and ribbon. These are your problem areas. Epson has an option to print NLQ or near letter quality. So that should give more clarify. I basically double prints the same letter to create a darker image. The printhead, if your printer is really old, you need to either find someone to refurbish the printhead or buy a new printhead because it could be the impact pins are bent and not giving the strongest image. Lastly the ribbon, obvsiously the more used the ribbon is the weaker the image. So either re-ink the ribbon or buy a new ribbon cartridge. Hope this helps.

Possible print head failure


to test , press pause botton and turn on (press 5 sec.)
he print a "pause test".
check if print, if stop on ich gap and if come some lines across the print (if apear some lines, need new print head.) this step just pause wen print some labels, and then still print until turn off.
Turn off and turn on the printer to work normal.

To calibrate media, go on the setings to "sensor profile" and/or "run manual calibration, follow the steps. (dont forget to take the ribbon from the sensor.)
let the test run until finish.
