My printer is stuck. Won't work. It keeps indicating fax mode. Strange thing, I have never actually hooked the fax up. how do I get it back to printing


Please follow the following steps.



1) Turn off the printer.

2) Shutdown the PC to which the printer is connected.

3) Remove the USB/Serial cable through which the printer is connected to the PC and reconnect it back.

4) Now switch ON the PC(only PC and not the printer)

5) Let the PC boot up and login to windows.

6) Now switch on the printer, PC should detect the printer automatically now.


Now you will be able to print.If not then follow the following steps.




Please be informed that any Printer Driver software depends upon the hardware make and Operating System. You need to know all these information's to do get going.

Please find the Driver software's of your printer inside the installation disk provided with the Printer at the time of purchase. As you have not mentioned your Printer make I am unable to give you the direct download link. However you can download the same by visiting the website of the company that manufactured the Printer.


Even here you need to be careful to download the correct software for your PC. You need to be exact with the Printer Model number and the OS that you are using.



To install just Double clock on the driver setup.exe file and go on clicking 'Next' until you get the 'Finish' option and restart the PC.




If you feel that my answers have helped you getting solution to your problems then please give a vote for best answer.

Thanks.

My printer won't shut off or print, lights keep blinking, computer won't boot if printer is on, must pull the power cord. Does my printer have a short in it?


In most cases the printer driver software can have errors while being in use or is shut down. So to reset remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and then connect the Printer ONLY WHEN PROMPTED, to be detected as a new hardware as it will be installed. Now check the printer properties to see the ink levels.
Activate head cleaning before a test is taken. Sometimes it is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the PC command or can be an issue with ink drying or poor ink cartridge contacts.

My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.


Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

HPC3180 PhotoSmart printer - works great - I use brand X ink cartridges, and they work fine. But I just formatted my computer and downloaded the latest HP driver and software. My printer just ran out of...


Not Familiar with brand "X".. Know about brand "X" washing powder anmd "DAZ". I take it is not the same.

OH! I hate the words "Just Formatted My Computer". Ypou have actual answered your own question, please please say you have the "OLD PRINTER PROG" or a copy lurking on a long forgotten copy CD?

Yes! it will be trial and error, reload the old version of your printer. New updates sometimes leave out differant suppliers and their progs, infact they may have fallen out, we will never know.

As a matter of interest, reinsert the old cartridge and see if it sees that though empty, then if fails to see that you have your answer.

Were's is "WV" I'm in the UK. Hope all works?

I could not print from ms word 2007


Have you been able to print previously or have you recently installed a new printer?

In word, check the paper settings are the same as your printers, ie A4 or an imperial size. If Word wants to print to A4 and your printer has no tray containing A4 then it won't run the print job.

Is there paper in the tray of the printer?

Can you print a test page from the printer menu itself to ensure that the printer is working okay.

Printer won 't print have turned off and b ack on can find printer but won't print


Have you tried using the other printer that is not checked? Make it your default printer if it works, and delete the other one.
If neither works, then delete both, and reinstall software.
