Runaway print jobs are always a pain! First, power off your printer to stop it from wasting paper. If the power button doesn't work, pull its plug. That will stop the printing for now but your print job will probably restart when the power is resumed.

Whether you are using a PC or Mac, documents that you send to the printer are managed by a printer management service which is responsible for printing documents in the correct order and handling any printer problems that occur. When the printer is turned off, any documents you print will be saved (queued) for printing when the printer starts again. To fix your runaway printing problem you simply need to delete the copy of your large document that is still queued for printing.

On Windows you will see a small icon on the toolbar at the bottom right of your screen that looks like a printer. When you click on the icon you should see a window appear which has the name of your printer in the title bar (e.g. HP Deskjet) and a list of any documents waiting to be printed. To delete a print job, simply right-click on the document name in the list and select "Cancel". When asked "are you sure you want to cancel the document" click on YES and the document will be deleted from your printer queue. Repeat this for all documents in the list until it is empty, then you can restart your printer.

The process on a Mac is similar and even easier since you will see a bouncing printer icon with an exclamation point on it on your toolbar. Click on that icon to see the print queue, click on the document you want to delete and press the DELETE key to remove it.

Try replacing your Print Driver on the computer. Think of printers as dumb beasts. They only do things as they are told.

SOURCE: printer wont print what I want only mixed up words on top of page

With the printer on, pull the power plug out of the wall socket. Then power off your PC.
Wait a minute, then plug the printer power cord back into the wall. Turn the printer on, wait a minute, then power up your PC. It should print normally again.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

SOURCE: im trying to print a document in word thats about

Hi,
Alrite now, firstly, since you need only 4 pages of the 200pg document, go to File > Print > Select page range (e.g. 1-4, 51-54, etc)
Then print and make sure you have pages loaded in tray 1.

You can also have papers in tray 2. If MS Word does not respond, then change the drivers to UPD (http://www.hp.com/go/upd), the system may have legacy drivers or An earlier version of firmware.
Rgds,
Nikhil

How can I print in grayscale on my Canon PIXMA MG8120?


That printer has multiple ways to print grayscale. The best is directly from the print menu, when you tell it to print, one of the things in the pop up box on most apps, like Word or Excel is "Options", or Print Options. From there you can set all kinds of things, and there should be a box you can check for Print Grayscale for whatever you are trying to print at the moment. You can also set grayscale as a default setting for all printing on your windows device, but then you have to tell it when you want color every time. Alternatively, on your Printers Menu System, on the third page of your little printer screen, there is a Settings option. This will lead you to all printer settings including grayscale printing setup.

Printing Sections in Microsoft Word


Printing Word Documents with Multiple Sections You have a document with multiple sections. When you try to print specific pages, you get either one single page, or the whole document. What you don’t get is the two separate pages you need.

First, take note of which section has the first page you want to print, and in which section the second page resides.

You need to print Page 2 of Section 1 and Page 1 of Section two.
In this particular case, the command is the usual: File | Print:


The difference in this case is how you specify the pages to be printed. In the Pages dialog box, type P2S1, P1S2 and then click OK. The comma “,” separating the two pages indicates two separate pages. The result will print Page 2 of Section 1 and Page 1 of Section 2.

If, however, you wanted to print from Page 2 of Section 1 through and including Page 1 of Section 2, the command would be P2S1-P1S2. The dash "-" indicates a range of pages, which results in printing from Page 2 of Section 1 through and including Page 1 of Section 2.

I have a brother mfc 490cw. I have only printed from microsoft word. But whenever I print a page it runs another page reporting the file name, directory,template title, subject, author, keyword, comments...


Hi there!
The issue that you are having is because of the settings on your Microsoft Word. Here's what you can do to resolve the issue.
  1. Open the document you want to print on Microsoft Word. Click on the Orb icon on the upper left hand corner which is also called the Office button.
  2. Click on Print and click on Print again. The Print window should be open by now.
  3. On the lower left hand corner of the print window you will see the options button. Click on the Options button. You should now have the Word Options window.
  4. On the Word Options window. Click Display from the Left panel, you should see Printing Options.
  5. Make sure that under Printing Options only Print Drawings created in Word is Checked and leave the others unchecked. Click OK. Click OK again. This should print your document without the other page.
Hope this helps! Have a Good day!

My Brother 2170w will not print from word 2010.


Welcome to FixYa!

If your printer does not print from MS-Word 2010 and prints from another program, most probably the default printer for word is not setup to your printer.

Open the word document you want to print, click on file, print. Select your printer in the Printer selection box.
Click print. Please see image below.

Everytime we try to print a receipt, we get the following error: unable to print. insufficient disk space. What do we do to correct this?


This is for Windows Vista--depending on your version of Windows, some steps could be worded a little bit differently. Don't worry, you should still get to the right place eventually! :)

Go to "Start"

Go to "Control Panel"

Below "Hardware and Sound," click Printer

Right click the printer you want and select "sharing"

Click "Advanced" tab

Choose "Print directly to the printer"

Apply and then press OK

You are set to go!!

Don`t seem to be able to change the font settings. It prints evey line double and gives a double vision image when priting.


How are you trying to change the spacing?

Normally this is a software control (application) for example Word. For example, on the Home menu of the Word screen, about midway across the screen, you will see the character spacing blocks, just to the right of those you will see a small box with up and down arrowheads. This is the box to click on to set the line spacing.

I am out of ink for blue and yellow and just want to print in black (i have plenty of black) can i keep printing. It keeps prompting me before i can resume to replace empty ink cartiages. I really need to...


Perhaps... when you click "print", and the Print Dialogue box appears, try checking the box "Print in Grayscale". It may work, it may not (it's your printer itself that is stopping the process, not windows).

If it's not the standard Word/Excel type program, you can also trying "printing to file" through something like "PDF-Adobe PostScript Printer", which will "print" to a PDF... transfer to disk/flash drive, and head off to kinkos!

Hope it helps!
