Question about HP DeskJet 1100c InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The printer keeps printing pages of single line code even offline

After i ask my HP Deskjet 1100c printer to print an autocad drawing it fails to complete the job and then proceeds to print out numerous pages with a random single line of letters, numbers, characters, symbols etc. Even when disconnected from the PC it continually spits out the pages sometimes leaving random pages blank.The ink low warning light comes on or the paper jam light comes on. Ink levels appear ok as new cartridges have recently been installed. Any ideas?

Go to system settings and select the 'Printer' option.

Right-click on the printer and enable the 'Use Printer Online' function.

Cancel all the printing jobs till that moment and redo the process.

Sometimes the 'Printer Offline' message occurs due to a 'Job Stuck' issue.

Check all network connections and functions.

Be sure the network interfaces work properly.

Turn the printer off and on to see whether the device is working properly.

Printer is offline & will not print ... not even a test page.

First, make sure that the printer is properly connected to the computer and it's turned on.

Go to Control Panel > Printers > right-click the printer icon > select "Use printer Online".

Make sure the clear the pending documents on the queue before trying to print a test page.

Thank you for using FixYa!

when you hook up your printer to your pc via USB...can the computer detect your printer? does it prompt out any msg such as new device is installed and ready to use or did it ask you to install the printer driver?
if your pc can't detect your printer, replace the USB cable and try again.. and try to plug into a different USB port on your pc.. and if all fails, then most probably your printer main board is faulty...
