Question about Dell 942 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Random yellow highlighting

It likes to highlight e-mail addresses,and highlight over green highlight and
other stuff at random. It always does this in yellow. I have reinstalled drivers. Nothing seems to work. The only way I can stop it is to print every thing in black & white. Could this be a hardware problem ?

I don't think it would be a hardware problem. If anything, there's a setting on the program you're using doing it. If not that i'd check the printer manual and the buttons or setting of that.

Hi, I have two printer HP 4015n, I installed them on the same time in the same office (two month ago). They worked fine, but this morning all lights keep flashing ( both printer) and can't print. Any...


Thank you for contacting FixYa with your printer inquiry.
Sounds like both these network printers have lost connection to your router or failed to obtain an IP address after server maintenance or network upgrades.
Would suggest printing a configuration page on each of the printers and determine what the IP address is (If there is one) and see if other devices are in conflict. Power down your printers and reseat your Jetdirect Network Cards and confirm cable connections. Re-Power the printers and print configuration again to see if obtaining IP address.
Find out what IP address are to be assigned these printers and manually configure via embedded Web Server or at the printer control panel. Consult your manual or Follow these steps:

1. Type the IP address into the address line of a Web browser to open the embedded Web server. 2. Click the Networking tab to obtain network information. You can change settings as needed.

Epson Stylus T10 printer prints out random symbols from PDF file


When you attempt to print, make sure you are using the correct printer. If you had an old printer before, its name will be still in the printers' list.

Goto the File Menu -> select Print-> Highlight the printer you are currently using, and then Print.
I am pretty sure this will solveyour problem.
If it does, give a rating to this answer.
