I've had this fault myself, If memory serves me right the control panel ( small though it is) we found to be the problem, once replaced the unit the displayed correctly, weirdly all functions of the printer were still available even though we were unable to see the display.
we were able to get config pages etc, and like you say the indicator lights were working- sort of - when they wanted to.
replace the diplay PWB ( its small and reasonably cheap)
Turn off the printer and open the printer back door. Use a spot light and give look inside properly. Make sure there no paper. Some time small part of the paper creates the problem. So you can do one thing after open the back door, top side etc make the printer upside down etc. So if anything inside that's will come out. After cleaning again connect it with PC and turn on. Now give a look. If you face same problem then Un-install the printer driver and software from the PC. Then restart the PC and Printer both. Now connect the Printer with PC via USB and install again the driver & software. Then try to print and let me know the result.
I finally got my LaserJet 6P to work with Snow Leopard - after about a year of it not working Using a generic USB to Parallel Connector Thought I had tried this before but apparently not Went into the Printer Driver and instead of selecting the already recognized HP 6P Driver, I selected Generic PCL Laser Printer And then checked off the Duplex Box Works likes a charm Amazing
please check the printer statues ..after switch on the printer its comes to the ready condition ( ready is on ) .. second thing please check the printer driver in control panel ( printer and faxes ) it should be ready .... one connect the printer to the pc and check it detecting or what if its detecting please reinstall the printer driver and check .......... if its not detecting its may have problem with the printer connector or main board ............. please reinstall the printer driver and try ....... if the printer is working means it will help you .....if you are getting any error while giving please post the error .......
You certainly can download the driver from the Canon web site. Most all manufacturer's have current drivers for their hardware on their web site. If you have the MP160, it should be a quick fix. They usually supply everything that was on the cd that came with the printer.
The spooled files are not getting to the printer, do the following in sequence:
Start checking usb cable, test it by using a different one.
Check that no device close to usb can create an electromagnetic disturbance, a power adapter can do this.
Disconnect printer from power, Computer from power (unplug cables form power outlet) and printer from computer for 10 minutes (this will reset printer and get rid of electrostatic charges on PC usb). Connect everything back and try.
If none of the above worked disconnect printer from usb, remove printer from 'installed printers' in Windows (or whatever OS you are using) Reinstall driver from printer disk (printer must remain unplugged). Plug back printer only when required from printer software or after driver setup.
If it still does not work it may be a problem with heads, Alps are quite peculiar printers, in this case you will need to find a servicemen in your area.
