The printer's lying to me


The printer requires both cartridges to have ink before the printer will initialize and operational. Even if you are only printing black and white both cartridge have to contain ink or the printer will error out. This is standard on all ink jet printers from every manufacturer. You will have to get ink before you can print.

This is not a Hardware problem It is purely problem of your Operating System Vista Home Basic.

  3. The computer will ask you some simple information like keyboard layout currency and Language after this you will You will be asked to "Repair" or "Install" Windows Vista.
  4. Vista System Recovery tool will start.
  5. Select Startup repair.
  6. Your Vista will take care of the rest.
If this does not work follow the previous steps from 1 to 4
  1. Select "Command Prompt" instead of "Startup repair"
  2. Type in the Black command prompt Window bootrec/ rebuildbcd and press enter.
  3. You will be asked to enter an entry in the BCD store from Windows Installation path directory. Select "Yes".

Samsung CLP-315 colour laser printer - is it true that you cannot print only with the black toner cartridge, if one or more of the colour cartridges is empty? I only need to print black!

apparently the default printing color has been changed, you have to change it back either from "control panel/ printers /right click on your printer and click properties, and choose color for printing." or you can do it per printing job, when it shows u the printing options, (like number of copies and other (basically same window from the control panel). if you do it from the control panel whatever you choose, that would be the default, otherwise it is per job change and is not permanent.

Deskjet 3940 won't print using microsoft wordpad but works otherw


You will kick yourself !
It drove me crazy for 3 days and I had tried everything ! reloading the software, full system restore and pulled what little hair I have OUT !
I had exactly the same problems my printer which is an HP Photosmart 2610 all in one,would print photos and everything else EXCEPT anything from wordpad,notepad or similar ! the pages were coming out blank !
Wait for it !
The solution is so so simple !
As wordpad docs are only usually in BLACK.I decided to change the colour to blue and lo and behold it worked !
Simply my black cartridge was empty ! upon refilling Absolutely everything printed fine !
Sometimes the most simple solution we cannot see !
I hope this has been helpfull to you..............
