    When I print, it just keeps printing and printing, even tho' I wanted one copy.

    My Epson Color 860 will choke itself sometimes and just keep printing what looks like alien html for hours !!! I have to sit here and keep refeeding the paper into it or else it will run through a whole **** of paper until it finally stops. Some pages are a line or two, the rest are up to whole page size; over and over and over...............the recycled pages get so thick with black ink that they're wet to the touch. If I canel or delete a printing job the same thing happens. It'sd been running now for 35 minutes.

SOURCE: crazy characters start to print when printing from pdf doc or certain websites

Hi,

I understand that the printer is printing garbage when you are trying to print from internet.

Please follow the below given instructions to resolve the issue.

This issue can occur if the data send from the application from which you are printing, is using the PC-8 character set. This will produce a smiley face or garbage charters each time an unsupported escape code is sent by application. To know the character set, please contact the manufacturer of the application.
Also, you can follow these steps to disable the power managment in the comoputer.
1. Right-click My Computer, choose properties
2. Click Hardware tab, click Device Manager button.
3. Click the + next to Universal Serial Bus Controller.
4. Right-click USB Root Hub, choose properties.
5. Click Power Management tab.
5. Uncheck the option "Allow the computer to turn off this device
to save power.
6. Click Ok.

If the issue persists, follow the instructions from the below given weblink to resolve the issue.

Here is the web document:

================

Just copy and paste the entire link into the Internet browser's address bar and press enter.

This should resolve the issue.

SOURCE: Can not print at all.

I found a similar error on a Vista 32-bit OS when I tried to print using notepad. There's no dot before dll.

PSW_Resdll.

I wouldn't suggest simply deleting the printer from the Control Panel's "Printers and Faxes" folder since that will still leave the printer drivers behind.

Try this instead:

1. Make sure you have the installer CD of the printer, and if not try to download it from the manufacturer's website. Make sure you choose appropriately if you're using Vista or it can cause problems. If you don't do this, Windows won't always download the proper driver for you.

2. Go to Start > Programs (or All Programs) > (Printer Brand) > Uninstall to make sure it's uninstalled, and also check it from the Add/Remove Programs (or Program Features).

3. Restart PC.

4. Use the installer CD, or downloaded installer, to reinstall printer.

5. Test printing from different programs.

If after all of these are done and you still have the same problem (unlikely, but hey, anything can happen), you need to call either the printer or computer technician. Most likely the first.

I tried this process and it printer worked fine.

SOURCE: Printer message- Page too complex

Other than the memory issue, this could also happen due to absence of post script drivers which are not a part of the software that you may have installed.
You can download the post script driver for this printer at the link below. Just select the Operating system that you are using and download and install the Post Script driver.

SOURCE: printer keeps printing blank pages non stop going

drop kick unit across room:)))) sorry just kidding I had the same problem with mine. If the computer is continually printing that means the printer is receiving print orders from your computer. Best thing is just disconnect the printer from the computer and turn the computer off and wait 30 seconds then turn on . This should clear the print cache then reconnect the printer. Make sure to only request one print at at a time.
if the printer continues to print blank pages check to see if you have the latest software driver for the printer installed on your computer. You can do this by going to the manufactures website and download the software its easy to do just follow the prompts and install! Hope this helpful!!!

Hi there,
It seems that " Print on both sides (Manually)" is selected in printing options., when you want to print any document Go to file Print > select printer and click properties and disable the Manual printing option in device settings.
You should be able to get printing without errors,
if the option is not checked then check for the default paper tray,
save the settings and reboot your laptop/desktop and restart printer as well so that settings should work properly and any given command gets clear from memory, If these all settings are ok, Uninstall the printer driver and download the latest version drivers from HP website and install see links below

Printer will not print anything except test page and wont delete


Possibly, the print spooler needs to be restarted. In Windows, one of the ways to do this is in the Command Prompt window. (Start > Accessories > Command Prompt, right click on the command and choose Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7).
Type "net stop spooler" <enter> without the quotes. At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <enter> again without the quotes. After the last command finishes, restart the computer. Check that the queue is empty and retry printing.

I hope this helps.

Printer keeps printing previous data without giving any command.


Dear user,
Your printer already have many commands given for print. that why is prints all that data which is already have given.

To clean the print commands. open your printer from Control panel---> printer and faxes--->> your printer
and then cancel all the commands which are waiting to be print.
You will not have anymore unwanted prints.

I just installed my new printer HP F4280, when gives print command in MS office it give error message MS office has stopped working


Hi Ahsan & Guest,
Thanks for sharing the problem with me.
Please first check printer installation:-
Start --> Printers and Faxes --> Right Click the printer --> Properties --> Print test page.

Problem might be Lose cartridge, Lose cable connections, Paper Jam, previous aoverloaded print que. Please Rectify all this.

There may be a hardware problem with printer itself please take help of printer technician in that case.

If this works, then start MS word, type something on page.
Click on print and select the right printer and print. It will work GoodLuck
Dear Guest, this problem might be in printing the web pages, please select all what you want to print or select nothing before printing.

Please see print preview to make sure that what you are going to print is rightly selected.

Thanks
