To help you troubleshoot the issue, please follow the steps given below:
- Make sure the printer top cover or printer door is closed properly.
- Make sure printer power connections are turned ON.

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

I just got a new computer with windows vista installed when i went to use my printer it keeps saying printer not commuciating with the coumpter


hello,
plug your printer to a power supply, connect the printer to the computer, make sure it is screwed properly, the computer detects it as a new hardware, install the new hardware hen it is ready for use.

when you are about to print, you select the item you want to print, then you right click and select 'print' from the options, select the type of printer you are about to use and it is ready for use.

I replaced the shuttle and need to do the phasing adjustment. Can you tell me how?


IMPORTANT The printer must be printing the Phase pattern of “H’s” when the Phasing Value is changed, or the New Phasing Value will not be written into NVRAM. If the value is changed when not printing, the printer will return to its default phasing
value when powered off then back on.
1. Install the ribbon.
2. Load full width (136 column) paper.
3. Power on the printer and set top of form.
4. Press Stop to put the printer into NOT READY mode.
5. Press Scroll + Scroll to unlock the Enter key.
6. Press Scroll + Scroll + Return + Enter to enter the CE Tests menu. (Press all four keys at the same time.)
7. The display will show “SERVICE / PRINTER MECHANISM TESTS”, the first menu item. Press Enter to enter the
mechanism tests menu.
8. Press Scrollor Scrolluntil
“PRINTER MECHANISM TESTS / HAMMER PHASING” is on the display.
9. Press Enter. The printer begins printing all H’s, each line preceded by the phasing index number.
10. Press Return. The display will show
“SERVICE / PRINTER MECHANISM TESTS”.
11. Press Scroll or Scroll until “SERVICE / HAMMER PHASE VALUE” is on the display.
12. Press Enter. The top line of the display will show
“HAMMER PHASE VALUE” and the bottom line will show the current phasing index number.
13. Press Enter. The phasing index (followed by an asterisk) will move up to the top line of the display.
14. Press Scroll or Scroll to increase or decrease the phasing index, then press Enter to activate the value as it prints.
Continue to increase or decrease the phasing index until the pattern of H’s appears.

15. When the print pattern is acceptable, press Stop. Printing stops, and the printer automatically enters the current phase
index value into NVRAM. The display shows “NOT READY”.
16. Press Scroll + Scroll to lock the Enter key.
17. Close the printer cover. Press Start to put the printer into READY mode.
NOTE: If you changed the phasing value, power down the printer, remove the shuttle cover, and write the new phase value on
the aluminum shuttle casting.

CX5500 wont print!!


Your printer is not ready yet because you didn't see yet 4 colors Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, Black.
If this 4 colors are showed then your printer is online but if not it all shaded grey.
If still have a problem exist, insert the cartridge properly or calibrate it. Such problem like this are due to cartridge not inserted properly. I have one this kind of printer in my house CX5500, it's cool.
Power On & Power Off is the best result on this.
Good luck!

Printing problem


I also own an HP D2360. I had the same problem with eyang and vinerc. I brought the printer to a computer technician and he told me that my color cartridge is busted and needs to be replaced. I bought
a new color cartridge and presto! My printer is working fine.
