Ok, I would suggest that you try to use just a base driver for the printer, and eliminate all the glitz and glamour of the management software. So uninstall all of that stuff, then get the latest basic driver here and just instal the driver, none of the optional goodies:

If by chance you are using a usb hub, then you might want to bypass it and make sure the printer is plugged directly into the computer. If it already is, try a different USB Port too.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.


Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep

Using the print or printer setup (I can remember what is actually written) from within word. ensure that the print margins are not to small and cutting off your words, or if the print is appearing close to the edge of the paper when you print, you maybe outside the range of the prints ability to print that close to the edge of the page in whice case you would increase your margins in the print setup (ie from .125 to .375 or .50)

If it is not printing as it should even though the printer cable moves along the printing area, it could be a cartridge problem. If you have an old cartridge with a little ink in it, try to load it and see if the result is the same. Otherwise, you have to buy a new cartridge. Also, check if the print head is clogged with ink.
