Part way thro a print the printer stops, ejects the paper then starts to print symbols on new page i then have to switch off when i switch back on again it prints the whole page ok


Suspect communication error. Try different cable between computer and printer.
Try alternative computer.
After telling computer to print avoid any other activity on computer.
Make sure printer and computer are powered on the same receptacle with ground plug.

I have an HP Windows Vista 32bit Home Premium computer, I run a HP W2207 wide LCD monitor on it and print with a Canon Pixma MP495. I've bought 3 different printer within the last year so, I know it's not...


Connect one of the three printers to a different computer, and try to print, to see if the printer and the printer-software work OK with some other computer.

Acribat reader ir 3300 canon printer wery slowprint what is solution


Removing and reinstalling the printer driver will fix most issues such as this.

But if you are finding its just slow for PDF files read on.

If we break down the actual issue you will find that its not so much the actual printing part of the process that is slow, its actually the spooling/converting the document to the printer that takes the time.
Does your printer support PostScript printing ? (PostScript is a printing & imaging standard used by many printers) To find out if your printer does indeed support this either refer to your manufacturers documentation or perform a test page and look to see if you have a PostScript enabled option.

If your printer does support PostScript, make sure you are using its PostScript printer driver, most of the time we generally use PCL drivers, so simply change this.

Firstly we can force PDF files to be printed as graphics as opposed to text, to do this launch your chosen PDF viewer, select Print > Advanced > Print as image

This can also help to increase just about any slow PDF printing issues as it means that a soft font does not have to be created as the file is directly converted to a graphic and then printed as such.

Lower the print resolution (this can be changed from both the Windows print settings and from the printer itself if it has a LCD type panel) If we lower the print resolution most of the time the difference is very small, but it can reduce the actual file print size of the document by up to 300%, which can greatly decrease printing times, especially if your pc or printer does not have lots of memory (RAM)

Make sure you are using the very latest version of any print drivers or your chosen PDF printing program, normally Adobe Acrobat, as this will provide the most stable and efficient platform.

If the printer only has a small amount of memory if possible add more, if possible install a Post Script SI MM.

Prints PDF documents VERY slowly (4-5) per page

If you find your printer does not support PostScript there are a few other tweaks we can implement to increase printing speed.

Check the amount of ram your computer currently has, check memory usage from task manager when printing to ascertain usage

Printer goes through the motions but text does not print


Let's first test the printer independant of your computer:
Try printing a test page using the instructions here: http://www.ehow.com/how_2006016_perform-test-epson.html. I hope your model printer is listed there. If not, try to find instructions specific to your model in your model's user guide or elsewhere on the internet.

If this works and printing from your computer doesn't, then:
(???Bad print drivers???) Reload the print drivers on your computer.
(???Bad cable???) Try replacing the printer/USB cable that connects this printer to your computer.
(???Bad USB port???) Try using a different port to connect the cable to your computer.

If none of this works you either have a faulty ink cartridge or a more serious issue with the printer. Depending upon the model, unfortunately, it might be cheaper to replace than repair.

MY X1240 will not print the text .


Did you run test page AFTER new cartridges installation?
Please print text from different programs: Noterpad, Wordpad, Office word, excell, Browser etc..
If you see text in some other program check settings in "text not printing" program : MSWord has a setting in Options blocking texts.
If you never see a text, check "Printer Preferences.." different from "Printer Properties.."
Let we know if fixed by scoring this solution or tell us results for any further support.

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.

I have a HP Deskjet 1300n printer. I can print my email, pictures and items off the internet, but cannot print any word documents or notepad documents. When I print an excel document, I get an incomplete page-the grid lines will print,and text garbage from a adobe program but not all the text. When I do a test print page, I get an incomplete text page, but do not know how to solve this. I have removed and reloaded the printer software-no improvement. There are no new drivers to be installed.

Hp printer will not effectively cancel print


Solution by www.freaksmania.org,

We cannot turn off HP printers when the printing job is going on or it runs out of paper,Paper Jam or Cartridge runs out of Ink or any other reason,ie power failure.

To Cancel printing easily,
1)First plug out the Power Cable(the System tray icon will now disappear).

2)Plug out the USB Data Cable

3)Reconnect the power Cable and turn the printer on.

4)Turn the printer off again and Connect the USB Data Cable.

5)Turn on and then your existing printing Job will be Cancelled.
