"Printer not responding" message when printing test page

Cannot print at all, including test page, although driver seems to be properly installed. Tried power off, disconnect from computer, etc. Running Windows XP.
Tried printer with another computer and it works fine, so I know my cable is OK.

    Thanks for responding.

    Yes, I did try the reinstall, but no improvement. The machine is a Sony PCV-RZ10C. I'm running XP Home with 1.5Gb memory.

    I phoned Canon's Tech Support about the problem. They were very helpful, but we couldn't solve the problem. This printer works perfectly with one of my other computers.

    Are you using regular printer cable or USB cable?

Have you tried to uninstall the software completely from your computer? Disconnect your Printer then uninstall all the software. Goto Device Manager and uninstall the driver as well. Then restart your computer. Then reinstall all the software and drivers. This should do the trick.

Have you tried deleting and re-installing the driver? And what kind of machine are we speaking of?

SOURCE: MFC-490CW Won't print black

We are going to attempt to do a "power purge" to get rid of any clogged ink nozzles. Note, this will probably eat up about half of your ink, but that is the price you must pay in order to attempt to fix this bad boy.

1) Get into maintenance mode. Press these keys: Menu -> Black Start -> Scan x4 (hit it four times). A number pad should come up. If not, do it again.

2) Hit key 7, then key 6.

3) Press the right key until you get to "CLEANING BLACK."

4) Press 3.

5) Press Black Start.

After it purges and gets back to the main maintenance screen, press keys 9 and 9.

Let your printer start back up. If this does not work, try the above steps up to three times. If it does not work then, you need a new print head, which is not a user-replaceable part on this model.

Good luck.

is your printer set up in you windows, can you go to printers, see your machine listed, make sure it is the default printer, and tell it to print a test page from there. if that doesn't work, can try other things, but don't want to write a long list of things on here to begin with.

I have installed HP 1220c printer on windows 7 in several ways. Printer seems istalled OK, when I try to print test page or other, the printer doesn't react. Although the print appears and dissapears...


Unistall any previous you have installed for your device.

The Driver for Your Product Is Included in the Windows 7 Operating System (i.e. Win 7-32bit & 64bit).
Simply connect the printer to your computer with a USB cable, and Windows Update automatically installs the driver for your product.

Hope it helps.

Printer does not function


Friend,

In most cases this is caused by a faulty driver or a broken printer cable. Please try to print an internal test page to ensure the printer itself is working properly, then replace the cable and ensure the driver is pointing to the right port if the internal test page prints properly. Also you could try to print the driver's test page (driver properties > Print test page > answer "Yes" anyway, since answering "No" only produces a bunch of suggestions that won't help you solve the problem!). If this works, the problem resides somewhere between the driver and the application(s) you're trying to print from.

All in One Printer/Scanner/Copier will not respond to print command.


Pls make sure that your computer recognizes your Printer, if it doesn't it would never respond to any print command you sent
check to see (if the computer recognizes)
1- go to start then select printer
2- select your desired printer - right click
3- go to properties
4- select print PRINT TEST PAGE
5- check the message on your paper

if it doesnt then you might have installed a wrong driver
