Printer won't print after being idle

Just got 3175FW installed. Works great -- when it works. But after it's been sitting unused for an hour or more, it refuses to print. Message says "Network Printer status is not available" or "printer is off-line". I can unplug the power cord, then plug it back in, then it will print. How can we fix this problem?

I have the same problem with a Samsung CLP-350N network printer plugged in to a FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN 7390. It seams it goes into a offline modus and doesn't wake up again but you can still ping the IP of the printer.

When I print PDF file, it print strange charcters. it print word files fine. How can I fix it?

Your computer is not communicating properly with your printer. This is usually caused by bad driver software.
Try to uninstall the printer driver (unplug it from your computer first), then install the latest driver available at the Samsung website.
Also, make sure you have the most current PDF program (usually Adobe Reader).

HP CM1312 on small office network.

do you have a printer server setup in the network,if so try restarting the server when it happens and see if the prints will print, check with your network administrator, the printer spooler might be at fault, also try adding more memory to the printer.

Printing one colour.

Given the age of the C87 it's likely that you haven't used this printer in a while and/or it's just slowly become clogged over time.

The ink in the C8x series printers is a resin based pigment ink which is very prone to clogging so it's not exactly unusual.

The best way to resolve this is to follow this procedure:
  1. Press the ink button once to get the printhead into the "exchange cartridge" position
  2. Pull the power cord out of the back of the printer
  3. Move the printhead over to the left out of the way
  4. Using a suitable inkjet ink cleaning solution soak the parking pad area where the printhead usually sits (This is a small foam padded area to the far right that sits in line with the printhead).
  5. Move the printhead back over to the right
  6. Leave for 24 hours (Patience is vital... Just leave it alone - see below)
  7. Plug the printer back in and run a single (just ONE) cleaning routine and a nozzle check
  8. If the nozzle check is still showing no colours on the black, cyan and yellow, leave it for an hour then try printing something with a little colour in it. (Sometimes the printer just needs a little rest time to sort itself).
  9. If still not printing properly, repeat steps 1- 8 again (and yes, wait another 24 hours!).

The way this works is that cleaning solution is able to wick up into the printhead nozzles and break down the clog. However it does take time to do this, hence the "be patient" bit :-). Distilled water is not recommended for this printer as the ink is not a water based type so a proper cleaning solution will work much more effectively.

Using this technique I've been able to recover CX6600, C84 and numerous other printers that have been completely clogged and unused for years so it does work.

Hope that helps.

Printer Looses Connection with Computer

It sounds like the 8 port HUB you are running the devices through is starved for power , either buy a new one or unplug some unused devices.

This should fix that problem
