The only thing I can think of is in the Printer Properties on the computer with the problem. If you can't find anything, then remove the printer from the computer and reinstall the driver.

Hp P3005n. I have a problem with tray 1. the feeder flaps when i send anything to print and this causes a jam. what can be the cause. it never use to flap before. Now for some strange reason it does....


Hi there

Can you try to add new printer and set it as default printer. Because I believe the old printer driver got corrupted. If it prints the test page, then it solves your problem. Normally a driver can be corrupted that receives wrong command from the computer.

If still not working, try to click and download this PRINT DIAGNOSTICS UTILITY (blue text). Here is the link http://www.out-of-warranty.com/print-diagnostic-utility-for-hp-lexmark-canon-dell-xerox-and-everything-else/ .It is use to fix errors automatically in your printer. Download, unzip and install it to your computer. I will helps you solve your problem.

Page isnt prining out Have new ink in printer


Hi,

Before you can troubleshoot the problem, determine its cause. Do the following steps in order:
1. Print another PDF, such as the first page of Acrobat Help.
  • If a separate PDF file prints correctly, the PDF that doesn't print correctly could be damaged. See "Can't print a specific PDF file" later in this document.
  • If the separate file doesn't print correctly, go to step 2.
2. Print another type of file (for example, a plain text file) from another application (such as Microsoft Word or WordPad).
  • If that other type of file prints correctly, the problem isn't system-wide--it's specific to the Adobe Reader or Acrobat product. However, the problem could come from Reader or Acrobat interacts with the system. Go to step 3 to eliminate some system-related causes of the problem.
  • If that other type of file doesn't print correctly, the problem is system-wide--it isn't specific to Acrobat or PDFs. The problem could be low system resources, insufficient memory on your printer, or a poor connection between your computer and the printer. Go to step 3 to eliminate some likely causes of the problem.
3. Restart your computer, and then print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, your system may have been out of memory or resources.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, go to step 4.
4. Turn off your printer for at least 15 seconds to flush its memory. Then turn it back on and print a PDF.
  • If the file prints correctly, the printer's memory was too full or had become corrupt.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 5.
5. Print from another computer.
  • If the file prints correctly from another computer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the printer or the network correctly. Consult your network documentation or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file still doesn't print correctly, go to step 6.
6. Print a PDF to another printer.
  • If the file prints correctly to a different printer, the computer you first used may be unable to connect to the original printer. Communication, hardware, or memory problems can cause this kind of connection problem. Make sure that the printer is turned on and connected properly. Then run a self-test on the printer to make sure that it's working correctly. Consult your printer documentation for self-test instructions or contact your network administrator.
  • If the file doesn't print correctly, see "Can't print any file from any application" later in this document.

All of our photos end with a magenta to purplish hue. We are using Canon inks, and followed standard trouble-shooting procedures; checked proper placement, printer alignment, deep cleaning. We are also...


Print a "test" page:

<FONT COLOR="#FF0000"> RED TEXT </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#00FF00"> GREEN TEXT </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#0000FF"> BLUE TEXT </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#FFFF00"> MIX RED & GREEN INK </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#FF00FF"> MIX RED & BLUE INK </FONT><HR>
<FONT COLOR="#00FFFF"> MIX GREEN & BLUE INK </FONT><HR>
</BODY>
</HTML>

and see if the printed colors are "true" to what you see on the computer-screen.

I have a Canon PIXMA MP780. It won't print except


If you can print the nozzle test then that proves most of the electronics, it could be the driver is screwed.
Since you can get something out that is intelligent e.g. the larger font lettering then it is processing the file sent to it.
By that I mean rasterising it, converting it to dots of ink, so it can print onto the page as the heads moves back and forth.
Why not try another computer and connect your printer to that one, or try a different file, or even send it a file you've printed successfully in the past before you started to have this problem.

DOES NOT PRINT IN BLACK


This may sound a bit dumb, but believe me as a tech support specialist, I have seen it happen. If you are trying to print a document, what color do you have set for text? I had a lady who wanted the text to be white on blue on the screen in Word and instead of setting it with a blue background and "auto" text, she set the text as white. White print on a white background (paper) doesn't show up...:-)

Printing Problem


You can print the Coniguration page and demos?
If so, somehow you may the settings to the printer wrong.
If you select , file, then print, see that the proper printer is selected.
If you can print those other pages, the printer and connection is fine. There is some setting not sending the print job from the applications.
Really sounds like the printer has be deselected at the default printer
