Hi jevance2012:
If the printer is a laser, you need a new cartridge, more than likely.
If you would give the make and model, it sure would help.
Your printer setup page may need to be reset.

If your printer is an ink jet, then the problem is not in the cartridges.
Anyway, hope it helps.

It won't print receipt


Does it try to print but no paper comes out? If not, are the proper drivers loaded? Turn everything off. Check that the paper is loaded correctly. Turn on your peripherals and then turn on the PC. Ensure the correct drivers are loaded. If the printer still makes no sound, it is possible the main power supply is fried. Good luck.

I have a hp photosmart c4280 and whenever i print it says margins are incorrect. how do i set them correctly so i can print documents.


Check the paper size at the printer properties on control panel.
You may be trying to print an A4 document to a printer configured to print on Letter size paper.
The document paper size should match the printer's paper size deffinition.

Sharp XE-A202 won't print


Hi.
If it is not printing at all, make sure you have the paper the correct way around. it will only print on one side. Make sure you have thermal paper loaded - standard bond paper rolls will not work in thermal machines. To test the paper, feed a small amount out, then scratch it firmly and quickly with a finger nail. You should see black lines left behind where you scratched it.
If it is printing everything except date and time, then it has been programmed not to. I can help with this.

Have installed new printer a message pops up saying the printer is out of paper even though there is plenty of paper in tray.


Hey buddy,

Follow the below steps:

Step one:
Check the media and print settings
While the printer is on, remove the power cord from the back of the printer, wait 30 seconds, and then plug the power cord into the back of the printer.
If the printer is not already on, turn it on by pushing the power button.
Replace any paper that is ripped, dusty, wrinkled, or bent. If the paper is curled, uncurl the paper by gently bending it in the opposite direction of the curl or replace the paper.
NOTE: Use plain paper in the unit until the issue is resolved.
Verify that all the paper is the same size and type.
Tap the stack of paper on a flat surface to align the edges.
Verify that the stack of paper to be loaded in the unit contains between 10 and 25 sheets of paper.
NOTE: Do not load too much paper in the printer.
Insert the stack of paper into the printer and then gently push the paper guides snugly against the paper.
Adjust the paper settings in the print driver. The paper settings in the print driver must match the paper settings for at least one of the installed paper trays.
Open a document in the application in which it was created.
Click File .
Click Print .
Click Properties . The Printer Properties dialog box displays.
Click the Paper/Quality tab.
In the Size is drop-down menu, select the size of the paper loaded in the unit.
In the Type is drop-down menu, select the type of paper loaded in the unit.
Click OK .
NOTE: These changes do not change the default print settings. The print settings will revert to the default print settings the next time the application is opened.
On the Print dialog box, click OK to print the document.
Try printing again. If the issue is not solved, continue on to the next section.
NOTE: If the issue is resolved and you want to print on another type of media, change the paper in the unit and then repeat steps 2 through 7 for the new media.
Step two: Clean the rollers
Turn off the product and unplug the power cord.
Open the access door to gain access to the rollers. Depending on the model, this is usually the rear access door. See the product user guide for information about locating the rollers.
Clean the rubber rollers with a lint-free cloth, lightly moistened with water.
NOTE: Distilled, filtered, or bottled water is recommended for cleaning the rollers. Tap water might contain contaminants that can damage the rollers.
Make sure that any paper rollers that rest on the input tray, which are located behind the back rollers, are cleaned. A clean cotton swab, lightly moistened with water, might be necessary to reach these rollers.
Close the access door and plug in the power cord.
Try printing again. If the issue is not resolved, continue to the next step.
Step three: Service the product
If you have completed all the steps and are still experiencing a problem, service your product.

Cause of this problem:

Any of the following issues can cause the error message to appear:
The paper trays are empty or overloaded.
The paper is curled.
The print side, or shiny side, of the paper is not loaded in the input tray face down.
The paper might not be engaged with the feed rollers.
The paper-width guide is pressed against the paper stack too tightly.
The paper tray is not completely inserted into the product.
The paper settings in the print driver do not match the paper loaded in the paper tray.
The rubber paper-feed rollers are coated with dust.

Printer won't print and gives me a code of 6A00. Printer is a Canon Pixma iP3000. Tried turning it off and on however this hasn't fixed problem. :(


Try manually moving the print carriage a few times. The problem is normally a stuck piece of paper or object. If you have any compressed air, try using that to blow out any dust or paper particles.

I am out in black


As far as I can tell, your printer model does not support color to black printing. Sorry.

The best I can suggest would be for programs like word or excel, etc.. to change everything that is black, to a dark blue.
