Hi this is a new printer- C4240. It will print alingment page, but when I go to scan something it says 'fail scan'. Also, the colours are way off when I go to print something. Thanks, Derrick.

CANON PRINTER MP560 WONT PRINT IN BLACK


Hi,

This is seems to be weird issue you are facing with the printer. I would like to know what is the application you are trying to print from ? Is it Microsoft word etc ? Try to type something in Notepad and print and check if the black is printed.

If you are able to print from Notepad then probably it there are chances the application you are tying to use is corrupted and might need to uninstall and reinstall

Regards,
Suhail

I had a lot of trouble trying to get this new computer to recognize the printer. I had to spend money on it again to get the computer and the printer to work together. Now the printer will scan something...


Hi, It sounds like you need an updated driver for your printer to match with win.7. Go to the lexmark site and download a new driver for your printer. And after that do an alignment page.
Good luck

Printer keeps showing Office Jet 8500 Wireless


The printer wants to align the print cartridge, if you print out the alignment sheet, and then following instruction, place on scanner and scan it in etc, and it fails to callibrate, I have found it is because some of the information on the calibration page is not being printed correctly so therefore machine cant calibrate the print heads from it, this is normally due to poor quality cartridges or failing/empty print cartridge or cartridges, these use two I think, and I bet one of the colours from the colour isn't printing properly, replace colour cart if blacks look good. Below is a link to HP so you can see what a alignment page needs to look like to pass calibration, compare yours and you may find a colour is dodgy on it.

HP Officejet J5780 : copy's and scan's result : black page


Try to disconnect the power cable from the back of the unit and reconnect it after few secs. The alingment will start itself. Complete the alingment once.

Print out is dirty, there are smudges of inks at the page center


What colour are the smudges, if they are one colour you can try changing that colour toner cartridges. Failing this then it sounds as if you may need a new drum

Test Page Prints Everytime Printer Cuts On


this is happen when you install an new catridge or refill one printer is automatically adjust the catridge by alingment so you do one thing when you switch on printer and it will print something just read the instrction and follow them bcoz you need to setup the alingment thing . when the print is come out just place it in to the scanner and just press the scan button the printer will store the setting and next time not print the extra page bcoz the setup is completed.

bye
