Will note delete documents


If you're using Windows, it could be due to the pc's Print Spooler service not running. Please try the steps below to fix the problem:
  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

While printing or copying top part of print fades out in my canon 2018 n copier


Hi,
A cleaning will solve the problem, follow these steps;
- Open the document you want to print - Go to file > Print - click properties in the print window - in the menu select 'Maintenance' - in the 'Maintenance' click 'Ink Cartridge Settings' - select Black Only - click OK - click OK - now you can print only using the black ink in the printer.
Hope this helps.

Why can't I print in black ink only....that's what they said you could do.


On your printer properties.....go to start, printers, in the window, right click on the printer, in the window, click on printer preferences, look for the color tab, then click on print in grayscale selection. You will then print everything in black only. You can do this for everything you print, or by selecting printer preferences in the print window after you have selected print for a document, you can then go to the color tab and click on print in grayscale for that individual document.

I hope you find this information helpful in solving your problem. If so, please leave positive feedback.

Thank you,

Brian

Since yesterday I am unable to print documents that open in Adobe format, although was able to do that before. Now when I click on "Print" button, the pop-up window tells me to Print to File and Output...


Instead of click the Print button go to File menu, then Print, and THEN select your printer.

It seems you don´t have your printer set as default.

Let me know if it worked before leaving negative feedback. So we can still try.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Thank you

Won't print


Ok I just solved a persons problem that is very similar to yours. OK So I'll just paste what I told the other person. You might have tried printing a doc/app out earlier and it might have failed so while you trying to print out this present app/doc the printer still might be focused on that failed or it might be confused. Now to stop this follow these instructions. Go to the start bar click control panel. Then once that window pops up ( control panel ) click printers and other hardware. Then once that window pops up ( printers and other hardware ).  Click Printers and faxes and that page will have all the printers and faxes ever installed to your computer. Now click on the printer thats yours and then a smaller wider window will appear you will that window will have all the doc/app you have ever tried printing out. the status bar will show what is going on with each doc/app. Now you should first stop all the doc/apps and refresh. To do this you should highlight all the doc/app and then go into the document tab ( there are several tabs in this window such as document , printer, view and help) then click cancel and cancel all the doc/apps. last step is to go into the view tab and click refresh and it should work :-). If not contact your printer manufactor.

A support tech at Canon suggested I try this.

find the file ImageCache.ic - I found it in application data folder in My Documents, delete it.

Uninstall CD Label Print, search for any other "CD Label Print" files or folders and delete them too.

Re-boot and re-install CD Label Print.

This worked for me. Hope it works for you too.
