    Do any errors come up on your computer? Have you tried turning both the printer and computer off, then bringing them back online one at a time? If so, does this problem still occur? What is the model of this printer?

I would try reinstalling the printer. Start-Control panel-printers and fax-add printer. also check that the printer cable is still attached at both ends.

Printer showing initializing on the screen and not getting ready


Usually a failed formatter is the problem on smaller printers where they will not come to ready. Try disconnecting any data cables going from your computer to your printer and restart. If it comes to ready, you might have a corrupted print job stuck in the print spooler. If it does not come to ready when not connected to a computer then the formatter is done.

I suggest you set up your printer to a different website if your in power point or excel or anything else or maybe you don't have a full connection from word to your printer if this is on your phone email to your work computer if you have one or a friend and print it off your email.

Why won't my printer print after I installed the software? It says its ready but nothing will print


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

My printer will not communicate to my printer, and it did recntly. just stopped working a month ago.


Do a normal power off (leave the printer powered on) on the computer and after 5 seconds re-power the computer on and you should hear the printer do a reset and become ready. I've had the same problem, it's in the printer.

My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.


Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

Mfc7340 will not print--it was working just fine and then it errors out. Uninstalled and reinstalled and it shows ready but errors out


Hello ,


First, please make sure there is no error message displayed on the LCD screen of the printer

Now we will check the status of your printer in the printers menu in the control panel.
The printer’s status should be set to “ready”
If the printer is “paused” simply clear the print queue, right click on the printer and select “resume printing”.

If the printer says “offline”, follow these steps.
  1. Clear the printer queue
  2. Shut down the computer
  3. Unplug the USB cable from your computer and your printer
  4. Unplug the power cable from the printer and wait 15 seconds
  5. Plug the USB cable back into the printer and the computer.
  6. Plug the printer’s power cable back in.
  7. Turn your computer back on.

Your printer status should be back to ready now and you are able to print.

Thank you,

Dell 540 photo printer


It might be time to, but try these first:

(1) Try rebooting the computer (Press Ctrl+Alt+Del>Shutdown>Shutdown OR press and hold the power button down on the front of the workstation/computer/tower/CPU until the unit turns OFF)

(2) If that doesn’t work, then try clearing the print queue: Start>Settings>Printers>Double-click on the printer>Right-click on the print job(s) and click cancel/delete/purge documents and try reprinting a document

(3) If that doesn’t work, then try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print

(4) Run a Test Print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

The printer doesn,t print


Check the printer on your computer to see that the file for printing has been received by the printer
and is ready for printing. (Go to start settings printer and left click on the name of the printer).


Check all wire connections.
Is it the correct cartridge?
Is the ink flowing from the outlet in the cartridge. Check with soft damp tissue.
Have you done a test run with the new cartidge (Go to start settings printer and right click properties... then cartridge maintenance)

If this does not work..
If necessary disconnect and delete software for printer.
Then follow instructions for installation again and reconnect printer.

Failing all this go to support at the manufacturers site for the printer.

Best wishes

Alleluia
