Try connecting the printer to a pc using the parallel port. If it prints, then probably the network card is bad. It may also be that the network address of the network card isn't set properly. Print out a configuration page and note the IP address of the printer and then check printer properties in your printers folder. Make sure the correct IP address is selected for the printer.

Laserjet 5100 says data received but won't print. It will print a conifg page from the printer. Will not print from Notepad, Properties test page or CS5. It printed yesterday.


How are you connecting to the printer? Parallel, USB or network? A 5100 series would come with a JetDirect 615 card and they are prone to unexpected failures. If you do have a network card it should show up on the config pages when you print. If it does not, then you can try to cold reset the printer as that sometimes revives the cards.

Quicken will not print. Program aborts after error message: Problems communicating to printer: "Dell Photo Printer 944" The specified resource name cannot be found in the image file.


Hi,

Ensure that your printer is online and all cables are securely attached.

(i) If your printer is on a network, ensure that your network allows you permission to access the printer.

(ii) If you are printing to paper, ensure that the Quicken PDF Printer is not selected.
(iii) If you have more than one printer:

(iv) Ensure that you have selected the correct printer in Quicken. (Select the QuickenFile menu, select Printer Setup, and select the item you want to print. Be sure the correct printer shown in the Printer field. For example, if you are printing a report, select File > Printer Setup > For Reports/Graphs.)

(v)Try making another printer the default printer.
Microsoft Windows Vista:
Click the Microsoft Windows Vista logo (Start button) and select Control Panel.
Under Hardware and Sound, click Printer.

Select the printer and click the Set as default command button.

Microsoft Windows XP:

Click the Microsoft Windows Start button and select Printers and Faxes.

Right-click a printer and select Set as Default Printer.

(vi) Try printing from WordPad or Notepad to be sure Windows is communicating with your printer.

Click the Microsoft Windows Start button, select All Programs or Programs, select Accessories and select WordPad or Notepad.
Enter some text. Select the File menu and select Print.

(vii) If your file does print from WordPad or Notepad, try reinstalling the printer or printer driver.
(viii) If your file does not print from WordPad or Notepad, it probably means that Windows is not communicating with the printer. Check your Windows printer settings.
Thanks for using Fixya.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

HP J4580 - prints 1/2 page, then a 3-4 min delay before it prints the rest of the page. No error messages, etc., just the long delay. Any advise?


Your printer comes with 16 Mb of non-expandable memory. It could be that you're trying to print a picture that is too complex or too big to fit in the printer memory. If this is the case, it's normal for the printer to print the 1st half of the picture, empty the memory, work on the 2nd half, and then print it.

Does it do the same when you try to print just one page of black and white text WITHOUT any pics? please, do the following test and report back so that I can help you further:
1) Open the wordpad (not Word and not notepad)
2) Copy the following and tne hit "print":

The pages that I'm printing have lines through the words


If you're printing from MS Word, be sure that you have not selected "overstrike".

If you're printing from NotePad or WordPad (see "Accessories" under "All Programs"), then you need to run a "cleaning cycle" on your printer.

The software installed from the Lexmark CD-ROM should have a utility for "cleaning" the print-heads, and for printing a "test" page. Run it.

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..............

Pixma IP3000 will not print


try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.

Test print great, document printing blurred


Have you tried a new cartridge yet? I know it doesn't make sense at first but I suspect the cartridge has a problem and your test print isn't exercising the printer like the Word doc is. If the new cartridge works than the problem is probably poor quality ink, the hole you used to refill isn't sealed correctly or the cartridge or jets were damaged in some way.
