Error message; no printing of text

I got this pop=up message when trying to print material. "Some of the printer's settings may be overridden by your application's print options." No text prints. But I can hear it printing. I've changed printer heads, ink cartridges, etc. However, I may have triggered something when I tried to set up my scanner and fax components. But I don't know how to get back to what I did....thanks

    It happens all the time. I use software and Mozilla Firefox for my internet. When I copy information for example a job posting here at Harvard, the copy prints just the colored logo, and side bar blue categories, but not the guts that are in black. Nor from the OpenOffice, will it print my letters. So, I don't think it makes any difference what is on. However, I must say I tried to get my scanner and fax up and going. But being semi-illiterate in this business, perhaps I snaffued something and didn't know it? Still can't scan, nor fax. URgh. Many thanks BZoe

    Ok lets go for basics first, and you are most welcome. Let's reset the deafult settings in case you accidenatlly changes something. Turn the whole unit off, unpug it, all cables, replug it and turn it on. Go to your pc printer icon and scroll to properties. Check to see any settings are not ticked such as print offline or pause or similar. If they are, uncheck them. Now, go to printer icon again, find where your default settings are (usually in properties too) and click anything that says restore settings, default settings etc. This should fix all issues.

Error messages and printing problems

Paper mismatch errors occur because the printer scans the width of the envelope before printing. If the paper size setting in the printer driver does not match the paper actually loaded in the printer, the printer reports a 'Paper size error'.
Try to adjust the printer and envolopee settings..

I have an HP Color LaserJet 3800 printer. I am trying to print a document and it keeps printing: PCL XL error Subsystem: GEDI Error: MemA L LocError Operator: ReadImage Position: 743

That means that the printer does not have sufficient memory tp [rint the document, if it is a text document (eg word) try to print pages in groups, if it is a different document try the following:
" I receive a 'PCL XL error' on my HP 4100mfp when making a 2 page copy as one page in duplex? Why?
The problem is related to a printer memory problem.

If following parameters are set in the HP 4100mfp you will receive and 'Insufficient Memory" error.
1) In 'COPYING' the 'IMAGE QUALITY' is set to 'BEST'
2) In 'ORIGINALS' the 'CONTENT' is set to 'PHOTO'

Following error message is printed:

PCL XL error

Subsystem: GEDI
Error: InsufficientMemory
Operator: EndSession
Position: 32

The solution is to set 'CONTENT' to 'MIXED' or 'TEXT' or set 'IMAGE QUALITY' to 'NORMAL' or you can add additional memory to the HP 4100mfp. "

Printer malfunction

2 possible soultions,

1. The color required to print the text ( ie: black or a variation of ) may have run out and needs to be refilled or replaced.

2. The other way that could help, is to select only the text you wish to print, by highlighting the entire text of the email, and then press and hold Ctrl while you press P to bring up printing shortcut menu and then check the "Print selected only" before attempting to print.

This should give you only the selected text, but if your black or the color required to print is empty, it may appear blank on the page, or show a low ink error.
