    Thanks, but I forgot to tell you that I'm working on a Mac Power Book. Went to the Preferences - Print and Fax and right clicked the Print Queue. The print Queue still will not open!! Any other suggestions?

    Many Thanks,

Start - control panel - printers/faxes - right click on the printer in question and click clear queue or cancel all (or similar).

    Not familiar with apple products, but I would suggest powering down printer then unplugging from wall socket 5 min. Then restart PC and plug in printer and power on.

    Additionally, you may uninstall the printer, then next time you turn on the Mac, it will recognize it as new.

Que es la t c

There is no problem if the printer is still printing . The cartridges have a special chip which is special to the printer and only the manufacturer can put a new one in. It knows how much ink is in the cartridge and will inform you when it is empty. When you refill it, however, and do not replace the chip, the printer may still print normally but will give a message that the ink cartridge is empty. Just use it until the printing is bad and refill it again.

I have replaced the ink in my printer, but the red button is still on and it wont print whats up with it

Make sure that the ink is Epson Genuine Cartridges. Epson does not like Generic. Also, with Epson, all the cartridges must be full. It will not print with either empty or generic.
Get rid of what is in que, thurn off, then turn back on, then que up the documents again to print.
Good Luck :0)

Cannot delete document from que

After you delete all print jobs, hold down the window key and hit 'R', then enter "services.msc" and hit enter. When the services console comes up, find "Print Spooler" and right click on it. Then click stop. Wait 15 seconds or so and right click/start the service again. If all goes well, the print jobs will be deleted. Good luck.

Need Dell All-in-One printer 924 to work with Inspiron 530S.

If it doesn't say it is specifically for VISTA then it is not for VISTA.. Even if it does show up on the computer ,that just shows that some driver for that model printer is installed. Not necessary one that will work. Go to the weblink that I gave you. Download the VISTA drive and update the driver, using the one you downloaded ,and that will most lkely fix the problem.
