Under the start button go to the Printers folder and verify whether or not your printer is listed as the default printer, when you ran out of in it may have defaulted to another printer or vitual printer(ie.... a pdf compiler) If that is your problem, simply right click your printer and select "Set as default"

If this is not the case I need some more info. What is the manufacturer of your printer and what model is it? How does it connect to your PC (USB, ethernet,Wifi, or Parrallel port)

Hope this helps

Try to print some more pages. The ink will take time to go down as it is not free flowing. This is due to the air beetween the new ink and the old ink, after some printing the air is push out and then you can have a clear print.

Computer says it is busy when I try and print out a page, just installed new black ink cartridge and it won't try and print anything now.


1. Check to make sure the black ink cartridge is installed properly.
2. Check to be sure no printer alignment program is trying to run.
3. Right click the printer icon on the tool bar and see if any print jobs are still lingering. Cancel them or Restart them. Printer should pickup and start working from there.
Last resort:
4. Shut down the computer and unplug the printer for at least 1-2 min.
Restart everything paying close attention to any error messages.
If none, the printer should work again provided nothing serious has happened.

Hope this helps!

Not responding to PC instructions to print data


Hi,

You need to load the PRINTED ALIGNMENT PAGE on the scanner glass, then press on "OK" button. It should start scanning the alignment page. That way, you are completing the PROCESS of ALIGNMENT.

Thank you so much.
