When you look in the system file, (Start, Settings, Control Panel, Printers & Faxes) does the printer show? if it does not appear, you might have the cable from the printer to the computer w/a poor connection.
Are you getting an error message when you try to print? You should be building up printing tasks in the printer queue. Are you seeing this? sometimes it looks like a small printer in the lower right corner of your task bar.
Are there print cartridges in the printer and are they free to move? If the cartridges don't move, (you should be able to move the cartridges with a little bit of effort), try gently moving them.
With the printer on, disconnect the cable from the printer to the computer. You shopuld a beep, saying that the computer no longer sees the printer. Reconnect and try printing again.

Make sure you select the printer has the default printer under the Printers and Faxes option on control panel.

Simply right click your printer and select the option "Set as the default printer"

To make sure it is solved, go to the printer properties under the right-click menu and hit "Print test page"

Good luck

I moved my HP 4000 printer from one office to another. When I hooked It back up, it printed out a few pages of symbols and then will not print at all. The ready light is on, but it will not print. Any


If you get a bunch of meaningless symbols on the page the usual causes are a corrupt or wrong print driver, a bad communication cable or a failed formatter or possibly a print job stuck in a queue on the computer that you connected the printer to (pending jobs often corrupt when you reconnect your printer). Unplug the parallel or network cable from the printer and restart and then try to print the configuration page. If it prints then plug in the communication cable and try printing again. Still bad after that reinstall the printer driver. If a fresh driver does not work, try a different cable.

HP LaserJet 4L quit working It's connected to my PC and it's on. All 4 lights are on; 2 green and 2 orange. When I try to print, the paper goes through but nothing is printed on the paper.


Empty cartridge maybe?
Otherwise it's simple: selt-test page(by printer button) printed ok - it's outer problem. Self-page is blank - it's inner problem. And so on... use Golden Section method

I just moved apartments, reset up my printer/computer, now computer is not acknowledging the printer. When I try to print it will say "connecting, 78% completed) and then nothing actually comes out.


MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR PRINTER SET ON DEFAULT AND THAT IT IS INSTALLED PROPERLY! OR YOU CAN ALSO TRY...UNHOOKING YOUR PRINTER, SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER AND HOOK YOUR PRINTER BACK UP BEFORE RESTARTING TO LET YOUR COMPUTER INSTALL YOUR PRINTER.

IF YOUR COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGINIZE NEW HARDWARE, SUCH AS YOUR PRINTER, THAN IT IS NOT SET AS YOUR DEFAULT PRINTER!

YOUR SOFTWARE MAY NEED TO BE CORRECTLY INSTALLED, MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS NOT HOOKED UP WHEN INSTALLING SOFTWARE.

SOFTWARE HAS BE INSTALLED FIRST, AND RECOGNIZED...THEN RESTART COMPUTER WITH PRINTER (HARDWARE) HOOKED UP!

Print a config page and check the IP address.
On the PC right click the 4050, go to properties, go to ports.
Make sure the IP address is the same as the printer.
Also on the rear of the printer, make sure that the green light on the JetDirect is on.
Check the config page (the 2nd page) right below the EIO X - JetDirect heading.
It should say "I/O Card Ready"

I have a Canon iP1800 color printer. I recently


Look around thoroughly in the Printers > Properties tabs. While in the shop, they have no doubt tested your computer (without your printer hooked up). Try letting your computer boot up without the printer, then with printer power on, plug in the USB cable.

Perhaps your printer is "offline." If so, right click on your printer's name in control panel. Choose "Use printer online".

PSC 1315v won't print


When you go to scan and the power light flashes, that tells you your computer IS communicating with the printer, however it may not be a good connection. Below i described that more. If the connection is indeed fine, and you tried a second pc or re-installed software completely, then I would have to say the printer is dead to you. (ie. a chip on a logic board has failed). Please continue below.

Software may be at fault. Can you print a demo page on the printer? Generally it can be done without a computer connected even, just hold any large buttons on the front of the printer for a few seconds, lights should start flashing, and a test print should print. I bet it will, because you said it "copies without a gripe."

IF that works, maybe you can completely un-install the printer software from Add/Remove Programs, or you can install it on a second computer?

IF that does not make a difference, try a new USB cable if you can. OR See if the USB port on the back of the printer appears loose. Are you able to hold it upwards or downwards or move it around at an angle? You could print another page, and quickly hold the cable in, and pushed up at an angle, or pushed IN-AND-DOWN at an angle.

IF that can be confirmed, you would need a $1 store soldering iron and would have to take the printer apart, and heat-up the connections between the USB port and the logic board. Possibly need $3 of solder from radio shack or what not. Hope I

The printer apear to be dead!


Buttons and lights on the printer Two buttons and three lights are located on the front of an HP Deskjet printer.
  • The lights tell when the printer is working or when it needs attention.
  • The buttons help control the printer.
Buttons and lights Purpose c00123886.jpg POWER button and light Push the POWER button to turn the printer off and on. When lit, the light shows that the printer is turned on. c00123889.jpg RESUME button and light The light blinks when there is a problem with paper. When the problem is corrected, press the button. c00123892.jpg Print cartridge light The light blinks when there is a problem with a print cartridge. When the problem is corrected and the top cover is closed, the light will stop blinking. Troubleshooting blinking printer lights Blinking lights Reason c00123895.jpg

All lights are off. The printer is off (asleep).

Press the POWER buttonc00123886.jpg to turn the printer on.

The printer should turn on automatically when a print job is sent to it. c00123898.jpg

The POWER (top) light is on. The printer is idle.

The printer is ready to print a document. c00123900.jpg

The POWER (top) light is blinking. The printer is busy printing.

Allow enough time to print. When a document has many fonts or graphics or uses complex color such as a color photo, it takes longer to begin printing. c00123902.jpg

The PRINT CARTRIDGE (bottom) light is blinking. Possible causes:

  • The front cover is open. Make sure the front cover is completely closed.
  • The print cartridge is missing. Make sure the print cartridge has been installed correctly.
  • The print cartridge is broken or incompatible. Lift the front cover, and wait for the print-cartridge cradle to slide out. Check the part numbers on the print cartridge:


Black: 51645A

Color: C1823D,

If the print cartridges are compatible and correctly installed, they may be defective. Try replacing the print cartridges.

If none of the above suggestions fix the problem, and, if the error message still occurs, it may be a hardware failure. Call the HP Customer Support Center.

Paper lilght flashing after installation


Sounds like a Driver issue. Try completely un-installing the drivers, and re downloading them before hooking up the printer. Something is conflicting with the printer and making it print spooler language. Maybe try downloading the drivers from the Manufactures website. Also What model Printer is it? and What lights are flashing?
