Question about Epson Stylus C60 InkJet Printer

Epson Stylus C60 InkJet Printer will not print

Just recently I had a situation where my printer stop printing, I tried to load up new drivers, performed the print test as suggested in the manual where you unhook the printer cable and hold down the button on the printer and the test completed. I also replaced the printer cable and the printer will only show in the print que that it is printing but the green light on the printer never flickers or begins to make the noise for printing also the popup for Epson ink status delays in coming up and when it comes up the levels for black and color are grayed out showing no color. Finally in the print que there will show an error has occurred. Any thoughts?

First  go to your pc and click on file, print when the window opens does it show your printer in there? is it set to THAT printer?  does it show as being Ready?

 

If not re download the driver,  then click on File, Print, right click on your printer and set as default.

Next double click on My Computer, ( or click on Start, Control panel, printers and faxes, put your mouse over your printer it should say Ready, if not then change the cable

Tip

General Printer Troubleshooting


Printer does not have power indicator<br />First, make sure that the printer is on. When a printer is on it should have some light (usually green) indicating it's receiving power and is on.<br />If you do not have any indicator light make sure the printer is connected to a working power outlet by verifying each end of the power cable. Next, press the printer power button.<br />If after following the above steps your printer still cannot get a power status indicator it's likely you're encountering a serious printer issue and we suggest contacting the printer manufacturer for additional steps and instructions on repair or replacement.<br /><br />Cables not connected properly<br />Your printer should have two cables connected to it. The power cable and the data cable, the power cable should have already been verified as being connected if your printer has a power indicator light as mentioned above. Make sure the data cable (parallel cable or USB cable) is also connected from the printer to the computer.<br /><br />Printer error (orange or blinking light)<br />After your printer has completed its initial startup you should have a solid green light. If the light indicator is blinking or orange often this is an indication of a printer error. For example, this could indicate a paper jam, issue with the ink or toner cartridge, or other serious error.<br />Because there is no standard to what a blinking light or orange light means if you're getting either of these we suggest referring to the printer documentation for troubleshooting steps or methods of determining what the status indicator is reporting.<br /><br />No paper or paper jam<br />Without paper your printer will not be able to print. Make sure you have paper in the paper loaded into the printer paper cartridge or tray. Next, verify that no printer paper is jammed or partially fed into the printer. If you have one or more pieces of paper stuck in the printer these will need to be manually removed before the printer will print again.<br /><br />Inkjet printer ink related issues<br />Often when you're encountering an ink related issue you're printer status indicator light (mentioned above) should be flashing. If this is not occurring you may want to skip to the next section. However, if you've recently inserted a new ink cartridge you may want to try the below suggestions.<br /><br /> * Replacing ink cartridges and printer not working.<br /><br />Printer self tests<br />Most printers have a way of printing a test page. This page allows you to determine if the printer is physically working or not. This test is usually accomplished by holding down a series of keys. If you are not sure if your printer has this feature or how to perform it refer to your manual or visit your printer manufacturers web site.<br />In addition to testing the printer using the printer self-test Microsoft Windows users can also perform a software self-test to determine if their computer is able to see the printer and it's able to print. Follow the below steps to perform this test.<br />Microsoft Windows 98, 2000, ME, XP, 2003, and Vista users<br /><br /> 1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel.<br /> 2. Double-click the Printers or Printers and Fax icon.<br /> 3. Right-click on the Printer you wish to test and click Properties. If you do not see your printer listed your printer is not installed.<br /> 4. In the Printers Properties window click the Print Test Page button.<br /> 5. If the printer is able to print a test page, you're printer is installed and setup properly. However, if you're unable to print in other programs it's possible that the program you're attempting to print from has issues.<br /><br />Older versions of Windows with older printers<br />If you are running an older printer and MS-DOS, Windows 3.x, Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT, you can also attempt the below software test.<br /><br />Get to a MS-DOS prompt or Windows command line<br />Get to the root directory - Type: cd\<br />Reroute dir to printer - Type: dir &gt; lpt1<br /><br />The above should take the directory listing and print to the printer. If this does not print, refer to your operating system troubleshooting section. Extra Note: This will not paper feed, therefore press your FF or PP, or manually eject the paper.<br /><br />Printer drivers<br />If your printer does not have any flashing lights and is connected properly it's possible you may be encountering a driver related issue. We suggest visiting our printer driver listing, which links to all major printer manufacturer driver pages and downloading the latest printer drivers for your printer.<br /><br />Parallel (LPT) printers<br />If the printer you're connecting to the computer is an LPT (parallel port) printer we also suggest verifying the below suggestions if your printer is not working.<br />Parallel port in CMOS<br /> 1. Enter the computers CMOS setup.<br /> 2. Once in CMOS verify that your parallel port is enabled or installed.<br /> 3. Next, verify the printer or parallel port mode. This option will often have several different modes. If your parallel port is set to ECP mode, we suggest trying a different mode.<br /><br />Other parallel device<br />If you have a parallel printer with other parallel devices such as a parallel scanner or zip drive, temporarily disconnect these devices to verify they are not causing your issue.

HP Photosmart B210a doesn't support manual duplex printing


Hi Marc,


Use the B110 print driver found at http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?cc=au&destPage=document&dlc=en&jumpid=reg_r1002_usen_c-001_title_r0002&lc=en&product=4022343&.

It is terrible that HP can release a product with such a useless print driver.

since you have not mentioned whether you are trying to print from a computer or any other device and have already performed the following steps :

Step 1WHICH MODEL ARE YOU USING?Stylus Photo R300 Step 2What were you doing when the problem occurred?Printing Step 3What happened when you tried to print?Only blank pages came out of the printer Step 4Using the buttons on your printer's control panel, print its built-in test page. Does the nozzle check pattern have gaps?No Step 5Adjust the left edge guide. Does that fix the problem?No Step 6How are you printing?From the computer
then you need to reset the printer to the original factory settings which can be done from the product manual or from the website details in http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Doc&oid=26322&prodoid=37368458

MAC OS X Canon MP830


Gazzards, First, what application are you printing from? Some applications (TextEdit for example) modify the size of the print job (scaling) to fit the size if the window on the screen. So, if I open TextEdit and type "THIS IS MY TEXT" and print it, it's fair. If I resize the window to full screen by clicking the green circle and reprint (with no other changes) the text comes out minute. If you've only tested one application printing, try another. Another bit of printing information in Mac OS X: You can manage printers in a different way using your browser and pointing to this URL: http://localhost:631/printers/ I use this to print a test page for printers, and it's a good test for your situation because it does not involve the print dialog settings. Just find the printer you use and click the "Print Test Page" button next to it. Does it come out the correct size? Please let me know if this helps.

Canon BJC 4300 InkJet Printer


i assume the cleaning method that you perform is offline (taking the cartridge our and clean them). I suggest you clean the head during the printer on.. try to perform below steps per the manual Cleaning the printer Printing the test pages Cleaning the print head I assume you do not have the manual anymore (no DVD) i list down the step below Its a bit long manual I suggest you download them from the canon website.. if you still have problem I can send to you the BJC 4300 manual Cleanning printer Make sure the printer is turned off before cleaning it. It is a good idea to unplug the AC adapter also. Do not clean the exterior of the printer with volatile liquids such as thinners, benzine, or any spray-type or chemical cleaners; doing so will damage the surface of the printer. When cleaning the printer, avoid the area near the print head on the BJ cartridge. Do not touch the print head. Ink may leak out and cause stains. Clean the printer regularly to avoid printing problems. Remove any ink mist or paper debris from the interior of the printer using a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean especially well around the platen area. If the rollers become dirty, you can clean them using a small soft brush. Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean away smudges and dust. Do not use paper products (such as paper towels or tissues) to clean the inside of the printer. Printing the Test Pages You can print these test pages to check the operation of your printer and your print quality. Test A This test prints a repeating pattern of characters. Demonstration This test prints a sample page describing the printer's features. Printing the Test Page From Windows You use the Test option on the Control tab in your BJC-4300 Printer Driver for Windows to print a self test, demonstration page, or a nozzle test pattern. Before selecting a Test option, make sure paper is properly loaded in the sheet feeder (see Automatically Feeding Paper starting on page 3-7). Click on the Test option and then click on the Print button. Printing the Test Pages Using the Operators Panel To print a test page, make sure the printer is turned off and paper is loaded. Press and hold the POWER button until you hear the number of beeps that correspond to the test page you want to print. Test Page Number of Beeps Pages Printed Demonstration 1 Continuous Printing Status Information 2 1 Page Test A 3 Continuous Printing Nozzle Test 4 1 Page When you release the POWER button, the test page starts to print. *All self-test prints require Letter or A4 size paper. Using a smallersize paper for a self-test print will result in parts of the printoutbeing printed directly on the platen. All self-test prints are printed in accordance with the current printing settings (font, printing mode, etc.) *Red- Information for technician not included in the user manual Cleaning the Print Head Your printer is equipped with a print head cleaning function to ensure constant high quality printing. Cleaning the Print Head From Windows If you are using Windows, you can execute print head cleaning from the Control sheet in the printer driver. Simply click on Clean Ink Head. 4300 Chapter 4 Page 6 Cleaning the Print Head Using the Operators Panel If you want to clean the print head from the operator panel, follow these steps: 1 Make sure the printer is turned on. Make sure the green POWER light is on. 2 Press and hold the RESUME button for at least two seconds until the printer beeps twice. The POWER light will blink for several seconds while the print head is being cleaned. Perform the print head cleaning only when you encounter a print quality problem. Unnecessary and repetitious cleaning will waste ink. If you execute the print head cleaning while paper is manually loaded, the printer will eject the paper and then perform the cleaning. 4300 Chapter 4 Page 7

Flashing resume light also can mean:

1. cartridge is missing or an incorrect print cartridge is installed
2. cartridge is out of ink
3. dirty cartridge contacts
4. paper jammed

Check are cartridges firmly snapped into place and not empty. Use water to wash copper on cartridges if contacts are dirty.
