We need more information...

1.) What is the make / model of the printer?
2.) What is the O/S of the computer
3.) What kind of "jargon" (alphanumeric characters or symbols?)
4.) When was it last working? What changed since?

y'know.. things like that will help us help you with a solution.

After you are on click on an email.
Go to the Hotmail menu(not the browser menu)..

Printer is printing wrong colors


Make sure it's the right ink cartridge for that model printer.
Check if any of the colors is out
Try running a calibration on the printer to make sure heads are lined up properly.

Link to the manual - Aligning print cartridges is on Page 70.

Lines are showing when color printing


You did not fix my problem and was on line with two different tech support people. Neither one fixed the issue and I am taking it back to the store and not buying you product.

Same lines won't print


Sorry, but this is impossible, as a "printer problem". This is clearly a "software/buffer/document" problem.

This can ONLY happen (on two printers, same results) if the DOCUMENT has "exclusive" properties or instruction sets, or "invalid data" for the "missing" lines. For example, you may be printing an HTML document with "DO NOT CACHE" meta tag or java instructions about specific lines or form entries. Many sites (like banks, registration, or encrypted mail/login pages) do this as a security measure to prevent critical data from being inadvertently printed (and ending up outside in trash cans for an ID thief to pilfer). Other possibilities: The lines are NOT text data, they might be IMAGES of text, and saved in a format the printer/buffer does not support. Any of these examples would allow the software to DISPLAY the specific (missing) lines of text -yet NOT print them.

To test my theory (almost a certainty really), simply open the document and select PRINT SCREEN key (or use whatever key commands capture the screen as an image). This copies what YOU see, to the clipboard as a single "image" file (instead of a variety of ASCII characters, images, and code).

Next, open "PAINT" in accessories under MSlop (or any IMAGE editor like Photoshop, Gimp, etc)

Select NEW and agree to the screen size you are using (1024x768, 800x600, 1280x800, etc)

Select PASTE from file menu (or CTRL/V keys). Your document will now appear.

Print the document. The "missing lines" will now show up! If the document is too long for one screen shot, you may have to scroll down, recapture (PRINT SCREEN, etc) and paste one or more images into each other before printing it as a single IMAGE.
