It doesn't matter how many printers are shown in your print manager as long as you have the right printer set as default.

Does canon pixma mx 310 work faxing page up or page down?


When using the ADF load the document with the side you want to copy, fax or scan facing UP in the ADF.

When using the platen glass load the document with the side to be copied, faxed or scanned facing DOWN on the platen glass.

I keep trying to print something and something pops up that says save file why?


Must have the Canon PIXMA MP160 printer selected as the default printer and not Microsoft XPS Document Writer.

I try to print something and it takes me to a page that says save as xps file, but every time i hit save, nothing happens!


Do you have your printer properly installed in the system?

Go to control panel, printers, and see what printers you have installed. Among them there will be a "virtual" printer called "Microsoft XPS writer" - it is a special "printer" that saves your document in a special type of file. Not very useful in your case.

Do you see any other printers apart from the above mentioned? If so, then most probably the "XPS writer" is set as default printer, and you have to select the actual printer you have (I presume it will be HP Deskjet D4260, as in the topic), right-click it and choose "set as default". Then you should be able to print OK from whichever application you want to print.
Additonally, when you select File->Print from that application's menu, it will show you a window, where the chosen printer is specified; you can always open the drop-down list of printers there and select a different one (your actual printer).

If there are no other printers on the list apart from the XPS writer, it means that your printer is not installed in the system, and you have to install the driver from a CD that came with the printer. Or if you don't have the CD, go to the HP website, download and install the driver for your printer.

Good luck, and please come back with a testimonial if helped.

Which printing device should be shown - and used - on Control Panel. PixmaMX310, XPS Document Writer, Page Mgr. PDF Writer.


if your pixma is the printer you use then it should be your default printer. make sure it has the checkmark beside it. if you use another device then it would be the default printing device.
if you use several different ones then you can choose which to use when you print.
hope this helps you.

Copyer problem


Go to the Control Panel, open Printers and Faxes, right click on the icon for your Canon, choose Properties.
Since the offered settings can differ from one model to another, you may have to look at any tabs shown to find the default setting for paper type but it will probably be under 'Advanced.' Check through the various settings and you should find settings influencing which paper size the printer should use and expect.

Photosmart 2575 printer is offline - won't print


In Vista make sure you are logged in as a administrator whenever you make any changes.

And if not to bring the printer online you will have to right click on the printer icon and right click on Run as administrator> and then try bringing the printer online and checdk if it works.

And you can delete the Microsoft XPS Document writer it is a default printer icon installed if in case you did not have a printer installed you can store them to print later.
Now that you already have a printer you can delete the Microsoft XPS Document writer.

Good Luck
