Type on a multi part form, if the carbons are good the problem is the ribbon.

My CanonPC940 won't grab paper and push it through to print-also makes a a loud "grinding" noise. How can I fix this?


Sounds like a tire may have slid off of a wheel. Yes they have wheels. Also paper soaks up water like a sponge always keep your paper in the wrapper it comes in and the top side of the paper is where the seam is. Make sure you put the paper in so that the top side is the side going through the machine. I do how ever believe you have a wheel or gear out of place.

What can be the solution's, I am typing the letters on the keyboard and it is printing all different characters on the paper -- is there a command set that should be cleared?


First pull out printwheel and see if the "spokes" are even and straight, Second try a new wheel, and third, on this Brothers, when you turn it on the carrier has to go to the left and you will hear the wheel turn and cycle to the correct home spot. Some times there is a arm that comes out of the left side frame that loosens up and throws the time off, check for loose bracket on left side. But a new wheel may solve the problem Good Luck.

Print job barely visible


Have you tried configuring the settings? I had that problem with an Epson Stylus NX125. I put in all new cartridges, went to properties and tried all options. setting it to black & white, then to color and the greytone. Printing samples after each change. I finally came up with an acceptable print after moving it back to color.

Typing the wrong letters


First try opening and closing the top cover. If that does not reset the print wheel to the correct characters, check and make sure the correction tape is not interfering with the wheel as it spins. If that is not the case remove the print wheel and make sure non of the spokes are bent. If they are you can try bending them back to the right position or you may have to replace it.

Hp photosmart will not print in colour there is ink in cartridge but only printing in black


The first thing that comes to mind is to verfiy that you have not set the printer to only print in black or grayscale.

Check your printer settings by following these steps.

In the software program you are trying to print from, click File and then click Print . The Print dialog box opens.
  1. Make sure that your All-in-One is selected and then click Preferences . The Preferences dialog box opens.
  2. Click the Paper/Quality tab. Options on the Features tab include:
    • Print quality : If you are unhappy with the quality of your printouts, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.
    • Paper Options - Type is : Click the drop-down box under Type is . If one of the options matches your paper type exactly, click it rather than Automatic .
    • Paper Options - Size is : Make sure that it matches your paper.
Verify that this option is NOT selected ===> Print All Text as Black : Prints all text characters as black, regardless of the document color settings for text. Let me know if this resolves your issue. Thanks for using FixYa!

When both of these lights are on you should suspect a wheel sensor. Check the sensor at each wheel (look for small 2-wire plug). Make sure each one is securely plugged in and no wires are broken or bare. Also make sure no sensor has been damaged. Dealt with same issue with one yesterday and it had a sensor left unplugged after wheel service.

You have the Printer emulation set incorrectly. I think it comes as IBM as default and you should try Epson instead. Its a trial and error thing but am sure emulation is incorrect.

Printing blank page at the end of every printing job


Hi Keren,

1) Are you sure it is the printer, not the software application ?

Try printing a single "Hello World" message from "Notepad"

If there is no blank page at the end of it, the problem is in
the specific software app: Office, Word, Excel, etc...


2) What application are you printing from?

a) Check the page and print setup.

b) Make sure the application's "page size" and the printer's
paper size are consistent. Pay special attention to
metric paper sizes vs English:

E.g. A4 vs Letter

If the page with margins is bigger than the paper, it will
generate a new page, even though there are no visible
characters on it.

c) Check the print margins within the page setup:
In MS-Office: File ---> Page Setup --->

d) Add a single character to the very bottom of your
document, and see if it wraps around onto the last page.

Microsoft office applications are notorious for wrapping
the last PARAGRAPH character onto the next page if
it does not quite fit onto the paper.

e) if you are using MS WinWord, go into options and set it
to display all special characters:

Check to make sure that there are no page-breaks at
the end of the document.

Also look for extra paragraph marks/ carriage returns,
and check the format settings on the last paragraph
mark in the document:

Page brake before...
Keep lines together ....
Widow and orphan control ...

which can cause the last paragraph mark to generate a
new page. If the last paragraph mark is not formatted
the way you want it, make sure that you save the
TEMPLATE after you change it, since this is the
DEFAULT setting for all new documents.

Finally it is also possible for Windows applications to look
different on the screen than the final print due to small
(but cumulative) True Type Font (TTF) computation erros,
such that a 10 page document on the screen can actually
page-split in weird places printing as 11 pages.

====
I have the identical model of printer, and it does NOT seem
to have any settings for printing banners or adding separator
pages, at least not in my printer driver, but this is NOT to say
that the applications you are using are not causing this
problem.

I hope this gets you started.

Please rate my answers.
