Your USB cable is either too long (more than 9 feet), or too thin. This makes the connection strong enough for status, but too weak for data transmission. Install a good quality cable and let me know.

Printer ready light never comes on but printer works

I've had this fault myself, If memory serves me right the control panel ( small though it is) we found to be the problem, once replaced the unit the displayed correctly, weirdly all functions of the printer were still available even though we were unable to see the display.
we were able to get config pages etc, and like you say the indicator lights were working- sort of - when they wanted to.
replace the diplay PWB ( its small and reasonably cheap)

I have created a bi-fold bulletin for my church using Cosmi Print perfect Gold and I need to send the bulletin off to the printing company but they need it in a pdf format. Can I make this in a pfd format?

Yes you can. If the software to do this is already installed, when you sellect Print... a pop up menu will appear with a list of your printers init. Select the one that says pdf and it will ask you for a file name. This will then save your file as a PDF. If you do not have the PDF printer listed here is a fee option to download one.

this is an easy way to create a pdf for the print company.

Hope this helps

I have a Konica user guide for your printer here:

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner

To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.

Printer will not print

Hi Check that the cable is fully into the printer also make sure that there are not any lights on the printer that are on. Within the printer icon right hand click on it and select properties. Once in there select the ports tab at the top of the window and check that the port that is selected is the correct one i.e. LPT1 or USB or which ever the printer is connected to.

Once you have check these try clearing the print que and print a test page from the properties window. If the printer prints ok then there is nothing wrong with the printer and make sure that within the program that you are using the correct printer if not change to the correct one by Ctrl: P and then at the top of the window it should state what printer is to be used.

Hope this works for you
Thanks J
