    Same issue with multiple 1720 printers.

  • Anonymous Apr 30, 2009

    When I go to print anything, the pop up box about the toner's print level appears first, saying there is an unknown toner level (this message is different, and new--and doesn't make sense, it *used* to know the toner level). It goes ahead and prints anyway, but first wastes a piece of paper with about 3 inches of one line of gibberish at the top that ends with, ironically and annoyingly--"zen."

Normally to fix a printer that is printing gibberish, uninstalling and reinstalling the print drivers will fix this issue. Another thing that can contribute to gibberish print is using a USB cable that is too long.

With this particular problem (prints Zen), one solve is to uninstall any Dell toner management software. This is particularly true if you are running Vista and hooked up by USB. To uninstall the toner management software (Vista OS), go to control panel>programs>programs and feature>uninstall a program. From this list choose Dell software, choose a customized uninstall, and then choose anything that has to do with Dell toner management.

Actually, and I'm not sure why it took me so long to figure this out - I just reinstalled the printer drives. 2-sided vs. 1-sided wasn't the problem. Reinstalling fixed it.

I have Vista and fixed it this way; perhaps it will work in XP too: Go to the printer properties, click Printer Preferences, look for the 2-Sided Printing section and change from "use printer settings" to "1-Sided".

This fixed it for me.

My Epson WF-3640 is printing with gaps in the text. How do I fix this issue?


Make sure you should remove shipping tape from the ink cartridge. These taps are used to protect printer during shipping but you have to remove it before starting printing. Beacuse these taps prevent the ink to entering in print head. If you will not found shipping tape in your printer then there is terr off strip, remove it. The tear off strip seals the the vent holes on the top of the cartridge to prevent it from drying out on the shelf or during shipping.
After ensuring that the shipping tape has been removed, run the printer's "Head Cleaning" utility to prime the cartridge, then print a test page.

Prinnter not printing but showing 'put custom in manual tray'


There is still a print job in the queue. Place a sheet so it prints or kill the job.


Open Printers and Faxes. Open printer. Highlight jobs and Right click > Cancel, or Documents > Cancel.
For those stubborn jobs, Right click My Computer > Manage. Choose Services and Applications > Services > Print Spooler. Right click and stop. Then start. This may have to be done from the Print Server if it's network printer. Contact IT to kill.
