Can't print documents from Word.

I can send documents from the Internet and print them, but I can't print any documents that are created in Word. My printer will print in color off of the Internet and so I changed my black ink cartridge tonight and it still will not print Word documents. All the settings appear to be correct. Help, please.

Did you do a test print by pressing ink testprint etc.? Do you have all colors incl. BK? If yes, check the printersetting WITHIN Word. Is the mfc the printer to be recognized by Word or is it another one? If you miss the bk upon the test sheet try to clean the ink cart by help of pressing ink arrow-down-button (cleaning) and (blue) start mono. If there is no or not enough ink check the cart. In case you use third party ones, use an original brother cart and do the cleaning twice. Third party carts do make a lot of trouble due to malconstruction!

Fax from computer

First, you will need a USB fax modem. Then you use Windows Fax & Scan program to create/forward new fax documents, or even send a file as a fax or email.

Setting up your external modem to work with an internet telephone line is simple. Simply put a 2 way splitter into the internet modem telephone jack. Plug your telephone into one input and the external fax modem into the other. Then you can even dial from your computer routine telephone calls too.

Need more explanation? Let me know.

Is there a way to hook up my hp lazer jet pro m1212 nf mfp to be able to send a fax utiling my laptop which is by wifi. In other words no land line available.

Without a dial-up line available for your fax machine, the only other way to fax is via the internet if it's supported by your MFP. Google online faxing or fax via internet for solutions you may be able to use in your situation.

Fax or facsimile was invented as a way to take a printed document, scan it into digital form and transmit it to it's destination in a matter of seconds -vs- sending it via an expensive courier taking hours or days. This is before the internet, Adobe and other players made a way to create and send documents via the internet without the need for a fax machine and dedicated phone line. While faxes may still be sent that way when the printed document is the only media available, faxing has died off considerably. Most large companies now have ways implemented to move documents digitally without the need to fax. I predict the fax portion of a MFP to disappear in the not too distant future. Earlier MFP's didn't include a fax feature and one had to but the next model up to get it, now it's included in nearly every MFP. Adobe's PDF format with the ability to fill in the forms fields electronically (as in your US taxes) without having to have expensive office software made printing and faxing a thing of the past. Don't be surprised if the business or other entity requests you, and all of us, to submit a PDF document to their business email address rather than a fax.

Good luck with your quest!

Word 2010 doc will not print. Will print with Wordpad.

Microsoft support describes several things to try. After checking to see if any new blank document you create could print or not, the next possibility is to rename the normal.dotm file that may be necessary to resolve this problem.

Procedure to check:

"Microsoft Windows 7
  1. Quit Word.
  2. Click the Start button.
  3. In the Search Programs and Files box, type or Normal.dotm depending on your version of Word.
  4. For each occurrence of the or Normal.dotm template that you find, rename it Normal.old. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Normal.
    2. On the File menu, click Rename.
    3. Type Normal.old, and then press ENTER.
You can now print new documents that are created from the new global (blank document) template ( However, existing documents that were created by means of your old file may not print. If this is the case, go to the "Print the problem document" section to resolve problems with these documents.

If you cannot print this new document, there may be a problem that prevents Word from printing. If this is the case, go to the "Print the problem document" section.

Determine if the problem documents were created from the same custom template You may still not be able to print particular Word documents. Examine the problem documents to determine if they were created from the same custom template. To determine which template created the problem document, follow these steps:

Word 2010
  1. Open a document that you cannot print.
  2. On the Developer tab, click Document Template in the Templates section.
  3. On the Templates tab, look in the Document template box."

The easiest way to print an envelope is to use Microsoft Word. If you have the software installed, go to start and then create new office document and click blank document. When the document opens, click on help and type in envelope. This will give you instructions on how to create an envelope and save a copy to your document. When you save a copy to your document, it gives you a picture of an envelope which helps to create it. Then click on file, and slide down the print and click ok. Creating the envelope through Word helps to change the printers paper settings. Word will send a signal to the printer to tell it what type of paper and size of envelope you are creating.

Hope this helps?

I have found that if I save my document as a pdf that it will print. I am not sure why this has happened, but it didn't start until we upgraded to Word 2010.

Found this on the Web Site. If you find helpful, pls rate me. For Epson, You must use Genunie Ink Cartridges. A MUST........

You may be copying something that is "proprietary" . The owner may have it copyright . Owner who can exercise control over what users can do with the software, in contrast to public domain.

Found this on the Web Site, if you would like to copy using the print screen key.
The key may appear differently depending on the manufacturer of your Windows keyboard. The standard position would be at the upper right hand corner of your keyboard and may appear within this sequence of keys...
The sole function of this key is to take a snapshot or picture of your computer screen and copy it to the clipboard (the clipboard is an invisible holding area for content that is copied). Its the same thing as if you copied something from a document and it is now on your clipboard waiting to be pasted in its final destination. Its that simple. As quoted by Webopedia...
Often abbreviated Prt Scr, the Print Screen key is a useful key supported on most PCs. In DOS, pressing the Print Screen key causes the computer to send whatever images and text are currently on the display screen to the printer. Some graphics programs and Windows, use the Print Screen key to obtain Screen Captures.
Now, how do you get to see those Screen Captures or maybe even send them to someone? The quickest and most effective method is to have a graphics editing program handy. If that is not an option, you can open your favorite word processing program and create a new document. Position your cursor at the beginning of the document or wherever you want the screenshot to appear.
Using your keyboard, press Ctrl + V which will Paste the screenshot in your open document. Now you can Save (Ctrl + S) the document to wherever you wish, make sure to name it appropriately so you can easily find it.
You can now send this file to anyone via email, use it in a presentation, create your own little book of screenshots showing how to perform a specific task, etc. The possibilities are endless.
We use the Windows Print Screen Key regularly. You probably will too once you get the hang of it!

Thanks and Good Luck.
