When I order a print job I automatically get the fax printer, which I never use. Sometimes the regular printer option is presented to me but not always. How can I change that so that the fax does not appear?

Hello
just set the printer(that you use) to default printer, you can also delete the fax printer if you don't use it.
go to your printers(control panel>printers) and right click on your printer and "set as default".
good luck

Cannot print screen shows ADF.what does this mean?


Hi!

ADF stands for Automatic Document Feeder and it means the device mounted on top of your pixma that allows multiple pages to be scanned/copied/faxed one at a time automatically.

Now why does it not print? The machine "believes" some document is inserted in the ADF in order to be scanned/copied/faxed, and wants that operation to be completed before it accept any print job. Please remove, if present, any paper from the ADF. Maybe its only some small piece of broken paper or even dust on the sensor in the ADF.

Good luck!

I am trying to set the printer to automatic duplexing...?


Hi

If you want to set Print on Both Sides (duplex) as the default setting for all print jobs (even single page jobs) use the following steps.
  1. Click Start , Printers or Printers and Faxes from the Microsoft Windows desktop.
  2. Right-click the HP Color LaserJet 2605dn_2605dtn and select Printing Preferences (Properties in Microsoft Windows 2000).
  3. Click the Finishing tab.
  4. Select Print on Both Sides under the Document Options section.
  5. Click OK to save the setting and close the Printing Preferences window.
  6. Close the Printers or Printers and Faxes folder.
Note:In this scenario, all print jobs, even single print jobs, will be treated as Print on Both Sizes (automatic duplexing) for media that is supported by the duplexing unit. For media that is not supported by the duplexing unit, the job will be treated as Print on Both Sides (Manually) (manual duplex).

Our HP Laserjet P4015N printer prints slow. It prints, stop, prints, stop and so on. It is working from a print server (Windows 2003) and we have update the driver. It might work for a day, but then it...


If it is a local issue to your printer it is likely that the fuser temperature is set to low. If the fuser temp is set low then it will pause printing in order to maintain a whatever temp it is set at. If you web out to your printer(type in the ip address of your printer) you will find the menu for the printer. Somewhere in there will be the option to increase or decrease the fuser temp. Sometimes it is as obvious as FuserTemp;Higher, HIgh, Normal, Low, Lower. Other times like on the cp2025 color laser i have it is under the extended print modes option, and it is under fusing with the options of; less fusing (-2), less fusing (-1), normal, more fusing(+1), more fusing (+2). however the option is presented on your printer you will want to increase the fuser temp. do it incrementally and see what works best from you. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the spooler dropping packets from your print server. Hope this helps.

When i send print appears in a printer press v to use availble media manual feed plain A4


The print job you are sending is in A4 format. If you are using Adobe Acrobat you will sometimes find that documents created in places such as Europe will be A4 not letter size. Check the settings when you send the print job as Acrobat gives you the option to resize and print to available media. You can also check your printer settings as there may be the option to automatically print A4 to letter.

To work around this issue, reduce the complexity of your PostScript print job. For example, set the TrueType Font Download option to Automatic, Outline, or Bitmap as follows:
  1. In Control Panel, open the Printers (or Printers and Faxes) folder.
  2. Right-click your PostScript printer, and then click Properties.
  3. Click Printing Preferences, click Layout, and then click Advanced.
  4. Double-click PostScript Options, and then click TrueType Font Download Option.
  5. In the True Type Font Download Option box, click Automatic. If Automatic is already selected, click Outline or Bitmap.
  6. Close the Printer Properties dialog box, and then close Control Panel.
hope this helps you.. please vote.. thanks

How can i generate incoming call report ?


To print a report:
  1. Press the [Menu] button on the Control Panel, until Reports is displayed on the top line of the Display Screen. The Phone Book menu item will be displayed on the bottom line.

    wcpe16-menu-but.jpg

  2. Press the right or left arrow button to scroll until the report or list you want to print is displayed on the bottom line.
    • Phone Book: Phonebook list
    • Sent Report: Sent fax report
    • RCV Report: Received fax report
    • System Data: System data list
    • Scheduled Jobs: Scheduled job information
    • MSG Confirm: Message confirmation
    • Junk Fax List: Junk fax number list
  3. Press [Enter] to print the selected information.
Your machine can print reports containing useful information. The following reports are available:
  • Phonebook List: This list shows all of the numbers currently stored in the machine's memory as Speed Dial and Group Dial numbers. You can print this phonebook list using the [Phonebook] button.
  • Sent Fax Repor: This report shows information of the faxes you recently sent.
  • Received Fax Report: This report shows information of the faxes you recently received.
  • System Data List: This list shows the status of the user-selectable options. You may print this list to confirm your changes after changing any settings.
  • Scheduled Job Information: This list shows the document currently stored for Delayed faxes or Toll Save faxes. The list shows the starting time and type of operation.
  • Message Confirmation: This report shows the fax number, the number of pages, the elapsed time of the job, the communication mode, and the communication results. You can set up your machine to automatically print the message confirmation report after each fax job.
  • Junk Fax Number List: This list shows up to 10 fax numbers specified as the junk fax numbers by using the Junk Fax Setup menu. When the Junk Fax Barrier feature is turned on, incoming faxes from those numbers will be blocked. This feature recognizes the last 6 digits of the fax number set as a remote fax machine’s ID.
  • Multi-Communication Report: This report is printed automatically after sending documents from more than one location.
  • Power Failure Report: This report is printed out automatically when power is restored after a power failure, if any data loss occurs due to the power failure.

NOTE: The lists you have set to automatically print out will not print out when there is no paper loaded or a paper jam has occurred.

Printer keeps defaulting to fax option


You have set the default printer to the Fax option.
Firstly, you could use the drop down menu where the Printer is displayed (when you go to print), and select the "regular" printer as opposed to the 'fax printer".
To set the default permanently to the laser printer....go to "printers and faxes" in 'control panel'. You will see a "check mark" next to the 'Canon MX 300 Fax' (or whatever it is called) identifying it as default. You want to put the 'check' next to the "regular printer" (whatever it is called)....'right click' on it, then "left click' on "set as default". Now when you go to print anything, it will just print.

Please rate me:)
