Hi it can be driver or software problem.Drivers and software download areas for brands listed below, just click to gain access and then locate driver for your needs.

Brother Epson Sharp Canon Lexmark OKI Dell HP Kyocera Samsung Konica/Minolta Xerox Panasonic

PLEASE NOTE

When installing drivers/software it is generally a good practice to - 

  • Delete old/previous installs
  • Leave printers USB cable disconnected from computer until newly installed software requests it to be connected.

    This error might show up on HP LaserJet 4, 4M, 4Plus, 4Mplus, 4V or 4MV. It means that the lower cassette is selected as the paper source. The printer has detected that the Paper Cassette, which serves as a paper guide for the Lower Cassette, is not installed. Install (or reset) Paper Cassette.

    Switches For Paper Cassette:

    On the LaserJet 4, 4 Plus and 5 printers there is a paper controller board on the paper pickup assembly, and there is a set of metal buttons that sit on the paper control board which is fasterned by a screw on the pick up assembly, 

    If the screw is lose or fallen out the switches or buttons that sit on the paper controller board become disloged and give out false readings or no readings to the paper controller board and utimately the DC controller and as a result the DC controller thinks there is no cassettee and it brings up INSTALL PC or PC LOAD A4 or PC LOAD LETTER.

    When you connect the printer to the laptop it should detect automatically . If it doesnot detect go to control panel ->add hardware and then add your printer .

    Post details about brand and model number of your printer.


  • SAM ANDERSON Dec 06, 2008

    Unplug power cord from back of printer
    Wait for 10 minutes
    Plug back power cord to printer.

    Again if it doesnot detect . Then it is faulty cable replace it .

Hi, unplug the printer, uninstall all software you have related to the printer.

insert the cd that you got with the printer into the drive, install the software plugin the printer when asked, should complete the install and the printer should work fine.

    goto printers and faxes


    start -> control panel -> printers and faxes


    See the status of the printer, is it READY? do you see it there? If you don't see it there, the printer is not properly installed try the printer on another computer to confirm if the printer works.

Cant turn printer off none of the buttons work ink is low will this cause a problem cant fax or copy


Ink low issue or message should not cause the printer to freeze.

You can disconnect the power cord from back of the printer ( while printer is on ) and connect it back after 10 seconds. Turn on the printer.

It should work fine.

Ron

Cant connect printer to wireless laptop.


have you setup the wireless connection in between the printer and the laptop...
your laptop is working wirelessly with the internet but for making the printer to use it wirelessly the printer should be also a wireless printer.

and if the printer is a wireless printer then you have to setup the connection in between the printer & laptop to work wirelessly.

I cant get my new laptop to scan from my hp psc950


Try to reinstall your drivers from your printer/scanner installation disk, if that does not work go to the manufacture's website then download the latest update of drivers or software for your printer/scanner...this problem usually happens when you switch to VISTA....

Printer cant shared?


when you change printer settings, the printer needs to be on and connected. if you have a working network, there's no reason you cant set sharing on your printer, then on the other computer, install a new printer, tell it to look for network printers, and it will install the driver on the 2nd machine. voila.
