My printer is giving me this error message "Batch


That's a batch error, more than likely due to a communication issue between the pc and the printer. If you reboot the printer, THEN reboot the pc you should clear that error.
This error sometimes occurs when the printer has been shut down whil logged into your software, which disables communications between pc and printer. The error indicates that the printer didn't receive enough data to properly print the batch of labels/tags.

Error 306 can't get printer to work with my mac. It was working just fine until I changed the cartridges and now it gives me an error 306


Error 306 is a communication error and should have nothing to do with the cartridge. Check to make sure the printer is plugged in and restart your computer, and try again.

Every time i try to print, the computer doesn't seem to see the printer and it stops the job. error message # 306. very aggravating!


That error message usually means you have a communication error. Make sure that the printer is plugged in, powered-on, and properly connected to your computer. Then try printing again
If that doesn't work, try this:
1. Start Home Applications, go to Utilities, select Utility Printer Setup
2. Hold down the "option" key and click on "More Printers" button
3. From the main menu, select "Advanced"
4. In the next dialog box, under Device: select field "LPD / LPR Host or Printer"
5. In the device of the "URL:" lpd://PCName/PrinterShareName
6. Click the "Add
If that doesn't work either, check your router settings.

Do the following:

Try a different usb cable.

Plug the cable into a different USB port.

Try disconnecting printer power cable for ten minutes.

Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes and restart.

Reinstall printer drivers.

If that all did not work, test the printer on a different computer, to find out if it is faulty or not.

It is possible that your ink cartridge is damaged. Try using an old ink cartridge that worked before and try to print again.Even if the ink cartridge you are using is full of ink, when sensitive electrical components are damaged, it wouldn't work.

You can also try using a different printer to rule out the possibility that your computer is the problem.
