Re: problems with printing

Make sure all cables are properly connected and not damaged. Try connecting it to a different port on your computer to make sure the port isn't at fault.

I suppose lights seem to be n"normal" on it? No flashing lights that may indicate problems or anything like that?

Whenever I try to print something I keep getting

It's a possible hardware issue in the feeding mechanism. Try to remove the cartridges from the printer then close the cover. Remove the sheets of paper. Unplug the printer from the power source. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back the printer to the power source. When the printer's ready, reload the cartridges. Load some paper but don't overload as this may send wrong information to the printer. Have the paper guides lightly touch the sides of the paper, thus avoiding shifting of paper when it feeds. Let it print an alignment page and do some test prints from computer. If problem persists, I strongly suggest you contact Lexmark Technical Support to further investigate the problem. Thanks.

CANON PIXMA MX310: printer not responding.

If you go to Start, Printers and Faxes, if it says "Offline", right-click the printer and choose "Use Printer Online." If it says Ready, you should be good to go.

If however there is a problem yet, double-click the Printer there and see if any jobs are in the print queue. You can remove them all buy Right-Clicking and choosing "Cancel All Documents" then try printing a test page. Right-click the printer, go to properties and click "Print Test Page."

If you still have problems, follow up on your question.

Xerox Phaser 8560DP shows annoying 'print completion' message

Someone installed the "Printing Scout" on this computer. You may need to uninstall or check all the settings in the printer driver. I'm not really familiar with Macs but I know the 8560 inside out, upside down, and backwards.

Cartridge message

There is some problem on the sensors or on the firmware of the product.
try to reset the printer by:
> unplug the power cord without turning off
> try to press and hold the power button without the power cord
> then press and hold the pound key "#" and the number 3 key at the same time while plugging in the power cord.
> dont release buttons yet, release it when you are prompted on the display like "Partial NVRAM Reset"
> then after doing all of the steps, try to print or copy and check if it would still prompt the error message
