Printer won't print

I installed everything correctly, it was printing perfectly for a few weeks and now it just won't print. It says that it is currently 'printing' on my computer, but it just never starts. My connection is fine and I am not out of ink. Please help?

Make sure your print queue is empty. Try restarting the print spooler by doing this: Right click on My Computer and select Manage. Expand Services and Applications, then click on Services. On the right side, find Print Spooler, right click on it and select Restart. That will clear any pending document stuck in the queue. Also make sure you have the latest driver for the printer, and that you are printing using the right port (look on the printer properties on the Printers folder).

INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Kindly, read the previous posts. I have taken some time to compose them accurately and carefully. I cannot think of any more information to submit to resolve my problem. I can't print. According to...


If everything at the printer looks fine (test prints, and no errors on the display) I would de-install and reinstall the software. The DE-install is important, DO NOT just reinstall over the top of the current installation. Also I would reboot after I removed the software and BEFORE I reinstall it. It might be overkill but it won't hurt to be through.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only


My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

Printer doesn't print correctly.


My almost new F4100 printer is printing irradically, prints perfectly for two or three lines, then it fades to nothing, in a few more lines it prints perfect again. I can't find where to fix it.
