Re: Printing problem

Check it's not a software driver fault, uninstall both printers drivers from pc and disconnect the printers and restart. Re-install the driver and then connect the printer when prompted

In my opinion 1. Check the printer setting and see whether your setting is correct or not and try printing. 2. If it's not ok then Change the cartridge "with New one" and see whether it's working or not. 3. Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programes>remove "uninstall" 4. Restart the system and reinstalled it and see.

All the Best!

For some reason when I print from the HP Pavillion dv2000, my printer feeds a blank page through for each page I am printing.

Appears to be a relatively common problem for different reasons--sometimes system, sometimes printer. Things to check--page length settings, try reducing the printout size, margins. What's the printer and what size paper? Thanks

its possible that in your printing preferences you have black and white selected. you can also try reinstalling the drivers for your printers, first uninstall them and then install the drivers again preferably newest drivers from the makers website.

My printer does not allow me to print out pages with color.

go to start>printers and faxes> look for your printer and right click on it.. go to properties.. and look for the advance tab.. there.. click on printing defaults... what you see next dependes on your printer properties and features.. look for a setting that says something like "print color images in black and white" and uncheck the box.... look in to the quality or color management section... refer also to your printer documentation.

Cannot get printer hp psc2355 to work with br6215srg router can you please advise

This router has a built in print server. What type of cable setup are you using; USB, LAN, Firewire ?? All of these methods should work.

For me, I have usb printer and wireless router connected to my desktop in the office, and I use a wireless LAN laptop around the house and I can print from my wireless laptop.

Tell me what setup you want to use so we can narrow this down.
I'm assuming this is a NEW setup your trying to get started.

New Ink cartridges registering as empty ...

Is it an HP printer? We had the same problem at work with print cartridges purchased at Staples. They have a major quality control problem. Your new print cartridge may be empty or dried out (died on the shelf). It's my problem at work, as I have over 80 HP deskjets, and Purchasing still insists on buying the Staples cartridges rather than the HP.

Sometimes if you shake a print cartridge really hard it may correct the problem. However, I would buy or borrow a black HP print cartridge and try it out in your printer. Works almost every time on the job. Good luck.

Computer not in color printing mode

When you go to print, go to properties for the printer you would like to print. Once there find the tab that says color and make sure gray scale is checked off. It could depend though where that setting is at by printer. Please provide what printer you have. Just the brand no product number or anything only if what i gave at first does not help.
