Turn off computer and printer.

Start over again. Turn on the systems

Disable any antivirus that could be blocking your installation

Go to printer folder and delete the non-using printers

Start over your new printer installation again.

My new lexmark 1200 is connected to my pc and electric the ink cartridges are in correctly but it will not print paper runs through fine but comes out blank


Make sure that the printer is properly installed on your computer that's teh first thing you need to do, if its installed properly try to do a test print using the printer utility and see if it will work..
You can also turn the power and turn it back on and try tp do a test print agin ...dont forget to check the connection

Hope that helps......

Document sometimes doesn't print


If the documents are large or have a lot of pictures and pages, printing can take a while. However, if the same thing occurs with a one page letter, try re-loading the printer driver(s) and/or check the printer settings, especially those that have to do with spooling. It's usually best to choose the setting that allows the document to spool so it prints faster.

Just in case you don't have the manul, here is a link to the book in PDF format:

I have a Lexmark 5400 seies printer and just purchased a HP Windows Visa PC. I am having problems connecting the printer. It keeps telling me that the USB is not connected. I have checked this out and it...


A couple of questions: Are you using an accout that has install rights? (ie. Administrator level account ) Are you seeing the UAC (user account control) prompts if you are are you clicking allow this software to run? Can you install other software? If these are true then

at this point try removing all printer software, then restart computer. Now turn on printer connect usb cable to printer then plug into a usb port on the computer, Do you get a "Found New Hardware" popup window? If so remove the cable from the computer and restart the computer. Now insert the cd that came with printer and follow the instructions for the software installation. If you don't see a "Found New Hardware"prompt then try a new usb cable, or try leaving the printer connected and turning the printer off for about a minute then back on. If this doesn't help try leaving it connected and re booting your machine also try different usb ports on your machine. If none of this helps you may have account permission issues or just bad hardware.
I would really need more info about your machine configuration if these tips don't help

Hi, i have a lexmark x2690 and am trying to install but get an error message and it won't print at all ... not even at test page... it flashes ec1 and the cartridge light flashes but they are both...


Did you take the tape off of the print cartridge before you put them in? Did you install the software first then when prompted turn the printer on then plug in the printer (usb) cord to the computer? Did you go into the print control panel and activate the print cartridges that you put in there? Sometimes you have to tell the printer that you installed new print cartridges.

Computer just quit reconizing my Canon Pixma IP 6600 Printer. Have tried new cable, reloading drivers, different USB Ports...Nothing seems to work


First impression is try to do an install on another computer.
uninstall unit from computer, delete completely all drivers and its printer software from computer. if VISTA OS make sure a VISTA driver is loaded for that unit.

if a fairly new unit, return too store, possible short.

I am trying to install a Hp L780 printer but i am not getting no results


When installing an HP printer, it is very important to NOT plug in the printer until the installation specifically tells you to. Uninstall the printer, reboot and start again. Make sure the printer is off and not connected to the computer. Insert installation disk, and follow the prompts. Only connect the printer when the installation tells you to. Good Luck
