Can't print from Word Perfect

I typed a letter in Word Perfect and it will not print. Box comes up saying "preparing document for printing" but nothing happens. I tried it from the print icon and file/print. Nothing. Just a week earlier I did print a letter from Word Perfect just fine. Did not do anything to the printer in the interim. Printer works ok with other applications and from the internet sites - it just won't print from Word Perfect. I unplugged the printer power cord and started again with no luck. It's a mystery. Thank you.

    My printer also won't print from wordperfect. It is a new printer, prints from other applications.

    I am doing the exact same thing. I have Vista so I installed the program on my husbands computer and still can't print. It's not the printer or operating system. I do know it is word perfect, but I can't seem to fix it.

    Same for me too. All of a sudden it printed and then bam...........it didn't print. Nothing changed either. I unloaded and reloaded Wordperfect from the CD too. No change. Any help anyone? Thanks.

SOURCE: Scaning . . . Scanning. . .. not scanned

Not sure if this is the correct way around, but it worked.  Go to Start --> All programs --> Dell Printers --> Dell Photo AIO Printer 922 --> Dell All-in-one center

From here, you can determine and change your scan settings as needed;  then click "scan now" (thus by-passing the button on the actual AIO machine).  This scanned photos into my picture program so I could email to all the grandparents!

SOURCE: when I hit 'file' then 'print' nothing happens

Go to your device manager and make sure that you have a driver for the printer. Or uninstall the printer then reinstall it. sounds like the printer driver has been deleted

SOURCE: printer won't print any Adobe files

When you click on "Print" do you get a window where you can choose the printer? If so, make sure you have you actual printer selected.

SOURCE: Printing small envelopes

In Word 2007, use the Mailing > Envelopes > Options section.

In 2003 I think it was under Tools > Envelopes & Mailings > Options.

There you'll be able to specify if the manual feed is top first or edge first, to the left, centered, or to the right, and how far over and down to place the address and return address.

After a few adjustment runs, it works great.

When I print a "letter" size document I have to push the green button to make it print. If it is legal it prints automatically to the legal tray.


Obviosly your magazine (Place of taking paper) of the printer is set to legal. The lights is lighting, couse the printer is telling you: You want me to print on letter, but I don have any letter, so please confirm that you want me to print on legal.
In order to avoid this set the printer to all types of paper available.

Check the paper tray settings and make sure they are alinged with they type of paper you are using. (Ex. Letter) These settings have to be perfect in the tray so the printer knows what paper is in there. Usually when this happens the printed is asking you if you want to use the tray anyway and by pressing the button you are saying yes so it prints. Try loanding the manual tray with letter paper and see if the same thing happens.

Cannot print


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Can't print Word Perfect documents on my Lexmark 1300


Make sure you have all the recent microsoft updates.

If it still won't print you can use OpenOffice (Free to use and download) to open your documents with and maybe they will print from there. Using Open Office may change some formatting, but you can usually fix that pretty easily.

Sending print job from pc to IR5000 prints with missing letters


I doubt it's the copier, sounds more like a application or board problem, my first suggestion would be to re-install the driver. the other would be to target the hard drive or memory/ mother board of the network of the copier

Did you change the top margin setting?

Make sure that the paper size is correct in the printer settings of the control panel when you print. You have to tell it what size paper you are printing on.

I have a Canon S330 printer which I have had for over five years and it has always been extremely reliable. However, very recently, it has not been printing so well. I typed a full page A4 letter yesterday...


it could be that the page lenght or papaersize is incorrect, you could try to adjust the paper size to A4 / letter size depending on the paper that is standard
