Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N250N/B Notebook

1 Answer

Only prints one page! no matter what!

Ok so my vaio has this issue where no matter how many pages I tell it to print (and I've tried this on 3 different printers) my laptop will only ever print one page. This is especially frustrating when doing projects for work and need multiple copies! I've had the registery cleaned to sweep for bugs, but the prob is still there. Any ideas? As far as I can remember it's been doing this since I got the laptop new last year.

This sounds like something to do with the printer que, did you ever reload the entire operating system?

Black spots lined up on page - cleaning sheet didn't help


To tell if it's the fuser you can do a half way test, what you have to do is print a document, and open the front door of the printer to stop the print job half way through, you should see that half of the toner is fused to the paper and half is just applied to the paper, if you see the black lines on the fused side of the page its the fuser if you see it on the entire page it could be the etb or the cartridge.

possible fix:

This is a common issue with laser jet printer,

Try running cleaning modes under the service menu on the printer, run 5 back to back. if the issue is still showing, try using a different cartridge and run the cleaning mode again. If you have an old cartridge even if its close to being empty you can do an override on the printer to test the cartridge:
1.press ok
2.use the arrows and navigate to the system set up menu
3. press ok
4. print quality
5. press ok
6. override out
7.press ok and again ok to set

This could also be a build up of toner in the fuser assembly, and you may have to adjust the fuser temperatures in the embedded web server. You can print a blank word document (20 pages) and see if you still see black dots, if you do it is likely to be the fuser, set the driver and printer settings to card stock or heavy in order to heat the fuser more than the usual temp and print 30 blank pages this should resolve the issue. if this does not there could be damage to the ETB or the fuser assembly and servicing of the printer would be required.

take care,

Al

Hi jbasset285: Your printhead may be bad do to third party ink.
Try these steps first.

Printing problem


Well, as I dont know what exactly youre doing I will advise you to do the stantard process:

1. Uninstall the printer completely (COMPLETELY)
2. Copy ALL the document and paste it over a new one (WORD, PUBLISHER... same thing) just open a new document and paste all the text and save it with a different name.
3. Restart the computer
4. Reinstall the driver again and make sure it is OK by printing a TEST PAGE...

IF OK and the test page is OK then print your document.

IF NOT 1: the test page does not comes out OK, then you have a problem either in the printer driver or the printer mechanism (cartridges maybe, try replacing them for originals) if this way thing still bad, you have no better choice than take the printer to a technician as I assume your are clueless in repairing printers.

IF NOT 2: the test page comes out OK and the document does not, (MAKE SURE YOU CHOOSE THE RIGHT PRINTER inside "print options") the problem could be your computer and not your printer.

IF NOT 3: it would be very rare, but you could have a problem with the spool service (the windows service that manages printing matters) but in this case nothing shoud be printed ok. So if the test page is ok, the problem is NOT your printer and you should look for the problem in your computer or your operative system.

Best luck!

Printer prints always only a blank page


2 more things to try. Assuming it is USB Change USB port. Re boot the computer. Replace the cable. Reboot the computer. Coming back to the driver software. Go to Start /Printers and Faxes/Install new printer Leave what is there in place When the Wizard comes up and asks CD or Select from list Choose select from list - then go to HP and your model and simply load the generic driver. Try each alteration one at a time Tell us what you get.
