Printing Probs with Lezmark X215

I was wondering if someone could help me. Usually I dont have problems printing but I am trying to print a page of labels and nothing happens on my printer. My computer says the document is sent to print whilst the printer just sits there with PC-Print... on it. I am desperate and need some urgent help here. This has happened on one other occasion when trying to print a document that was sent via email. I even tried to copy the labels into a new word document and still nothing happens. Please advise. I have also tried turning printer on and off and still nothing.

Steps to troubleshoot:

1.Look in print preview (file-print preview)
Check that u could see all the 4 pages in print preview with same alignment.

2.Still if u cant print, then there is problem with the format of ur document..Save the file with .doc extension

3.Still the problem, Uninstall the USB composite Device of the printer from the devicemanager(Right clk my computer-properties-hardware - Device manager-Universal serial bus controllers).then reboot.

SOURCE: printer only prints one page of multiple page document


You may try to change the spool data format:

1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Printers and Other Hardware" and "Printers and Faxes."

("Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers" for Vista...)

2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."

3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.

4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark *** series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."

5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.

6. Try printing again.

SOURCE: This happens pretty much every time I try to print

Might be a driver issue. Uninstall the Lexmark software properly by following the steps found on this link: Once pc is ready, check if your Vista is running on 32-bit or 64-bit by clicking on the Windows logo Start button > right click on Computer > Properties. Leave the printer disconnected from your computer for the meantime. To reinstall, I suggest you use the updated driver from the Lexmark website. Just click on this link: (for 32-bit) or this link: (for 64-bit). Download and install the software. Follow the instructions on the software. If this doesn't help, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support for further assistance.

Is there a known problem with the HP J4680 and IE8?

The problem is usually with the web site being printed. Various website designers use different methods to create their pages. Some use tables and frames which present a problem for the print software.

1) Wherever possible, look for a "Printer Friendly" version of the web page

2) Failing this, from the IE print icon drop-down box (down arrow) choose "Print Preview" > Click Page Setup icon (gear icon) > Select page settings of your choice. Try printing by clicking the printer icon.

3) When encountering a webpage created with frames: Click IE print icon drop-down box (down arrow) choose "Print Preview" > Click Page Setup icon (gear icon) > Select "As laid out on screen" or "All frames individually" or "Only selected frame". Try printing by clicking the printer icon.

I hope this information was helpful.

That depends on what you are printing.
Any time you read stats about page count, it is usually based on 30% coverage of the page.
Depending on what you are printing, it can be more or less.

Estimated yield is 30,000 pages for a standard cartridge.
Using an aftermarket (refill) cartridge can vary greatly.
And as mentioned, it really depends on what you are printing.

Compaq a1500 printing probs

ok you might have tried printing a doc/app out earlier and it might have failed so while you trying to print out this present app/doc the printer still might be focused on that failed or it might be confused. Now to stop this follow these instructions. Go to the start bar click control panel. Then once that window pops up ( control panel ) click printers and other hardware. Then once that window pops up ( printers and other hardware ).  Click Printers and faxes and that page will have all the printers and faxes ever installed to your computer. Now click on the printer thats yours and then a smaller wider window will appear you will that window will have all the doc/app you have ever tried printing out. the status bar will show what is going on with each doc/app. Now you should first stop all the doc/apps and refresh. To do this you should highlight all the doc/app and then go into the document tab ( there are several tabs in this window such as document , printer, view and help) then click cancel and cancel all the doc/apps. last step is to go into the view tab and click refresh and it should work :-). If not contact your printer manufactor.
