CanoniP90 playing up!!

Won't print current page on my Macbook,eg a BA ticket reservation.Seems locked into printing previous formats eg home fax page,bank remittance requests etc all, of which I print out in some numbers for future use from time to time,but it refuses to return to printing  what's actually ON THE SCREEN!! Stupidly I seem to have mislaid the user's guide CD,the quick-start guide is useless;I have tried pressing the right quadrant on top of the printer,which produces a yellow light,then the left quad,which produces a green on/off light,and even both together..nothing.

    1. Click "start" and go to "Run"

    2. Type "services.msc" at the prompt which will open the Services

      window (ooh, pretty...)

    3. Scroll down the alphabetical list in the right window pane until you come

      to the entry with the name "Print Spooler"

    4. Right-click this entry, then select "stop". This will stop the computer

      running the process that holds your print queues.

    5. Leaving that window open for now, click again on "Start", and then click

      "My Computer" to open a Windows Explorer window.

    6. We've stopped the queue service, now we just have to clear the jam that is

      already there. To do this we navigate to the print spool folder which is hiding

      within the Windows folders. Usually Windows is installed on C: drive, but you

      should be easily able to tell when the Explorer window opens which drive it is


      The usual path to the spool folder is

      C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS, but yours may be slightly

      different. Your windows drive may have another name for instance, but this would

      be uncommon. So click on your Windows drive (usually C), then double-click on

      the Windows folder, and then find the System32 folder and double-click on

      that. Windows may warn you that you are about to view system files, but click

      "View files anyway" message and search out the "spool folder". Within the

      Spool folder is your Printers folder, and you should open


    7. Delete every file within this folder to empty the jammed print queue

      (pressing the "ctrl" and "a" keys will select all files and then you can just

      hit "delete").

    8. Close the explorer window now that we have emptied the cleared spool files,

      and return to your Services window. we must re-start the Print spool

      service, and do so by right-clicking the Print Spool entry and selecting

      "Start" from the list. Close the services window and try printing again

I need help how to print my boarding pass for an airline.

How to Get Boarding Pass

You can print tickets by logging in to the airline's reservation systems or at the self service kiosk at airports. It also appears you can now make use of mobile phones to acquire the equivalent of a boarding pass. If you have purchased a ticket online for a flight, you should have links in your confirmation email as well as the reservation number. Print out that email. When you go to the particular airline's website, you will need that information to enter into the system there. If it is not obvious, use the search feature on the site to locate information about boarding passes.

I have just printed train ticket reservations from the internet and all that prints is code for the websit page

If the printer is writing the web address the problem maybe is from the webpage. Try to select the text you want to be printed then from the File menu -> Print, choose Selection from the options available in the Print Range and then click OK.

Copier km-c2525e will only print 1 page of document

it might be a long shot but have you got an add toner message on your copier screen.
When toner is required the copier will only print on page at a time.
Alternately you should ensure that you have not selected a partial print  eg
print current view or print current page.
if all this fails, reload the driver and or your Acrobat reader

hope this helps

HP officejet 6310 All-in-One When I try to print a copy of an airline reservation, from the ticket, or selected "print" on computer, it doesn't run off the ticket. It prints Page 1 of 1 on top of the page...

Make sure you're using the website's printer-friendly option when printing the ticket. Look for an option on the webpage (not in the pull-down file menu) that will correctly format the information for printing.

How do I fax from Writter??? I have a HP Officejet J5780 that fax hard copy just fine, but want to fax right from the word processor. I am using Vista Home os.

Sending Faxes and Configuring for Faxing
To send a fax directly from, you need a fax modem and a fax driver that allows applications to communicate with the fax modem.
Sending a Fax Through the Print Dialog
1. Open the Print dialog by choosing File - Print and select the fax driver in the Name list box.
2. Clicking OK opens the dialog for your fax driver, where you can select the fax recipient.

Configuring a Fax Icon
You can configure so that a single click on an icon automatically sends the current document as a fax:
1. Choose Tools - Options - Writer - Print.
2. Select the fax driver from the Fax list box and click OK.
3. Click the arrow icon at the end of the Standard bar. In the drop-down menu, choose Customize.
The Toolbars tab page of the Customize dialog appears.
4. Click Add Commands.
5. Select the “Documents” category, then select the “Send Default Fax” command.
6. Click Add and then Close.
7. On the Toolbars tab page, click the down arrow button to position the new icon where you want it. Click OK.
Your Standard bar now has a new icon to send the current document as a fax.

I just bought a new printer, when connected to my pc, the test page printed correctly. However when I tried to print tickets from a website, the printer will only print a sheet of blank paper. Is there...

When ever you are printing coupons or tickets don't go to your printer icon instead make sure they have not established a "Printer Friendly" button on the page. Sometimes they will set up the printer schedule for adobe reader format make sure yours is up to date.. Good luck be mucho blessed...Mark

Instructions to number tickts


MS Pub still lacks a lot of luster, and I've taught this program at the local community college and recently built a template for someone needing the same thing.

The trick is in tracking the numbers which can be done by adding more pages as you go or printing them off as needed one by one and keeping track with a log using notepad. In notepad you can press F5 and it will insert a time/date stamp and you can enter which number pages you printed so you don't overlap, etc.

You want to Insert a Field in the Header or Footer. The field you want is Page Number. You will notice some formatting options and choose consecutive and the options that seem right to you as you are working in the field. You can then select that field and format the color and font face, etc. I've always used red bold. Each page you add will ratchet up the page number for you automatically. The pitfall you may encounter is that MS Pub may crash after a certain number of pages are created. It has and seems to always get a bit better with each new version but be aware of this potential problem and keep a backup of your template file and your working copy. You may find you can also do this in Word which has no crash issue for 1,000 pages.

Still, the most practical way to go about this would be to print off all 1,000 at once or do 100 at a time and keep your log up to date, creating a new working file for each 100 copies with the starting page number 101, 201, etc. This all depends on when MS Pub decides to crash (if it does at all) and how you choose to go about this.

If you are unclear as to what I've stated in the above feel free to ask by commenting back to this thread and I will work with you until you're done. That is if you are willing. I am.
