Go to add a printer and tell it you want to add a local printer. It will probably fail. You will then have to select the manufacture and the model or browse to where the drivers are installed.

Fax wont send or receive? I can here it ringing though wont send???


Try changing the cable from the phone wall outlet to the fax, when a incoming RING signal comes, with a bad phone cable (it is 90 volts AC) so the power to ring the fax can go through but not DATA, try pluging a standard phone in the wall outlet to see if it work's.... if the standard phone don't work than call the phone company's service desk, if the standard phone work's (initiating a call) than concentrate on the printer's trouble shooting guide...

Good luck!

Paper jam


Hi Good day!! Follow this method to remove your paper jam:

1. Check to make sure that the power cord is securely plugged into an active wall outlet if your printer is not turning on.

2. Make sure that the USB cable connecting your computer to your printer is securely connected if your printer powers on but will not perform a print job.

3. Remove a paper jam if the "Check Paper" light on the front of the printer is blinking. To do this, first turn off the printer and unplug the power cord from the printer. Open the front cartridge door and locate the jammed paper. Gently pull the jammed paper toward you. Plug the printer back in and turn it back on.

4. Connect your printer to a different USB port on your computer if you are experiencing slow printing. The slowness could be due to a connection problem with your computer's USB port. After you've switched the port, try your print job again.

5. Make sure that a phone line is securely connected from a phone jack to your printer if you are having trouble sending or receiving faxes.

6. Clean the scanner surface if your scans are blurry or have vertical white or black lines. To do this, spray the a soft, lint-free cloth with a mild glass cleaner. Wipe the scanner glass with the cloth and then dry it with another clean lint-free cloth.

7. Hard reset the printer if you are having trouble solving your problem. Turn the printer off and remove the power cord from the wall outlet. Wait at least 15 seconds and plug the cord back in. Power the printer on and try your job again.

8. Restart your computer if you can't solve your printing or scanning job. Sometimes restarting the computer can solve an unseen problem.

It says HP psc1315 printer is offline and won't print. how do i fix? wont change back to online also one document at front of queue wont delete


Reset your printer. To do this, turn off the printer using the power button, remove the cartridges, unplug the power and the usb cables. Press the power button for several times. Connect the power cable and also the wall jack, power on (don't connect the usb cable). While the printer boots up, keep pressing power button several times. Leave it for few minutes and again switch off. Now connect the usb cable as well and insert the cartridges. Shutdown the computer. Power on the printer and also the computer (Note when you power off/on, use only the power button). This will fix your problem. If possible, please reinstall the drivers for your printer before you restart it with the pc. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

I have connected d145 printer to my new dell laptop with Windows 7 but although installed as default printer it won't print


Do you have files in the queue? What is the printer status in Devices and Printers area?

Since this is a USB printer, my usual trouble-shooting starts with checking the USB connectivity. If you are using a hub, try connecting directly to the printer. Change to a new USB cable and try a different port. Check if a known working device will work in the port. Make sure the ports are not disabled for power-savings or security (power savings is adjusted as an advanced option in the same area as setting the Screen Saver, Security shut downs are in the Device Manager).

Frequently, you can reset the printer by unplugging the USB cable from both the computer and the printer and pulling the power cord for a minute. If the items in the print queue cannot be deleted from the queue, use the Command Prompt (run as administrator by a right click - Start, All Programs, Accessories) to empty the queue. Once in the command prompt, type "net stop spooler" without the quotes and then hit <enter>. Then type "net start spooler" (again without the quotes) and hit <enter>. Once the commands have been processed, reboot the computer.

I hope this helps.
