When trying to print anything from web-based pages all I get is gobbledegook (computer code).No problem with printing emails or if I cut and paste web pages onto clipboard (although it reformats).

    No success with those two suggestions I'm afraid.



    I keep getting an IE "Problems with this page..." error coming up. Might this have something to do with it? The lines and characters vary but Error is "Object Expected", Code is "0" and URL is http://www.fisya.com/PostComment.aspx?th...

Try the following:
Update printer drivers first. Use the CD provided with the printer or download drivers from manufacturer website, and perform driver setup again.

Update Internet explorer to latest version, IE6 has problem with several printers. Here the download:Internet Explorer 8: Home page

Try downloading different browsers, and print , below the download for Firefox, Opera and Chrome:

First we need to try this:

Click on Start | Click on Run | (type or copy/paste) regsvr32 ole32.dll | OK | Click Ok for succeeded message.

If that doesnt help:

Try disabling the third-party tool bands and Browser Helper Objects and

How do i make my print larger onmy kodak esp3.2


I depends upon what you are printing from. For example, if you are printing from a web page, sometimes there is a selection available on the web site to increase the size.

If the problem is the size that is printing out, I usually do a "cut and paste" of the text from the web page and then paste it onto a blank document page. You can then change the font and/or size of the text.

One other suggestions is in the "printer" settings, select the choice for "no borders" or "no margins" and that will allow the text to expand slightly.

Printer only prints top and bottom lines on page


All web based documents, especially bank statements, require a COLOUR cartridge, so if your cartridge is empty, it will print blank pages. Although the font may look black... it is normally NOT. Altentaively you may also need to instruct your printer to print "background images".

When I try to print a page from the web, it prints what looks like code. It will not print the actual page that is front of me on the web. However, if print from Word Perfect, it is fine.


It's not your printer problem. The web page size is different from paper size. For these reson when you select whole web page, the web page divide more sector and at these time your printer print one of them or more.
Here is a software that help you to print the web pagehttp://www.printpunk.com/downloads.htm
Or,
There are some web site to print web page.
Jast go to the web, paste expected web address and try to print.
Or
If you are wondering why you can't just click the print command and get the web page or other internet page you're looking at to print out properly, you're not alone. Too often pages get cut off at the margin so the ends of lines are missing or pictures are cut off, or blanks appear where words or images should be. This is pretty frustrating because you can see the words right there on the screen; they're there, but when you print them out they're gone.
Never fear-- we a have a few how to tips and tricks for you to get those internet pages to print out nice, neat and complete.
First Click on Print Preview
Before you print out a page, go to your browser menu (usually the file menu) and click on print preview. This will bring up images of the web pages as they will appear on a print out. If they look good, all you should have to do is click the print command, usually also found in the browser menu file window, and they will print out as shown. Note, however, that once in a great while the print preview will not be accurate, and the print out will not match the preview. But don't tear your hair out, just make use of the tips that follow.
Look for the Printer Friendly Link
Some pages will have a "printer friendly" or "printable version" link or the like. Click on this link and you will get a version of the web page or pages that is optimized for print out. Once you have brought up this printer friendly version, just click on your print command found in your internet browser window. You might still have some problems if you are printing on a black and white printer, which we will discuss later, but otherwise you should get a faithful print out.
Also Look for the Pdf File Link
If the page you've called up comes up as a pdf file, you should have no problem printing it. If it is the usual html file, it may also have a link that will take you to a pdf file version of the same pages. Look for this pdf file link and click on it to bring up the pdf file. To read this pdf file, you will need a copy of adobe acrobat, which you can download for free by clicking on this adobe acrobat link. Remember that once you're in a pdf file, you should click on the print command in the pdf file menu, not on the print command found in your internet browser window. Clicking on the browser print command may cause all kinds of problems, depending on how your computer is configured.

Print in Landscape Instead of Portrait
If the print preview shows pages cut off on the margin, and you don't have a access to printer friendly or pdf versions, you can print the pages out in landscape instead of portrait format. If you don't know already, landscape prints left to right across the longest dimension of the page (as in a landscape painting) and portrait prints out the normal way (as in a portrait painting). When you print in landscape, you are pretty much guaranteed that nothing will get cut off at the margins. In most browsers, you go to the file menu, click on 'page setup', and in the page setup window click check the landscape box before you do your print out.
Black and White Printer Problems
Some black and white printers do not convert all the colors to black or gray causing some elements of pages not to print out at all. You get blanks spaces instead of words or picture. I have a black and white printer that does not print out blue. This is really aggravating when printing out text that contains a lot of those blue underlined links. You are reading a sentence and suddenly there are missing words.
There are a couple of solutions here. The obvious one is to print out the pages on a color printer or a different black and white printer that does not have this problem. Another solution is to cut and paste the web page into another program such as a word processing program. In many cases you can just then print out the pages and they will print fine. In other cases you will have to use the software program (that you've just pasted the page into) to change the problem color portions to black and white, and then print out the pages.
Problems Photocopying Web Page Print Outs
Sometimes a page prints out fine on a color printer, but you have problems copying color portions on a black and white photocopier. A lot of photocopiers don't copy yellow well. This may be intentional, as it allows you to get good copies of things written on yellow legal pads, and to eliminate yellow highlighter marks from pages you have marked up. However if the yellow is content you want to keep, it just gets lost. Try another photocopier; they don't all do this. Alternatively, print out on a black and white printer before you photocopy.
When All Else Fails
If you still can't print out successfully, you can try another web browser, or you can email the webmaster or other contact for that website and ask for a fix, copy of their catalog or whatever ot

Printer will not print from email


if you wan to print an email . go to the actually web page ...and try from there ...do not try to print from outlook cause it has an encoding that might not be read by the printer ...specially for attachments ...
if you wan t to print an attach ment ..save it in the computer first ...
if you want the whole page ...print it from the website of the email service ...and use file(left -top) and print ...for yahoo for example you can print from the page directly by using the print job on the right corner of your email ...Im sure that for about any email service there is a thing like this ...
in sort ...usually is best to save any file that ya want to print into the computer before..

Increase the size of the letters before you print them. For instance, if you are using wordpad, before you write anything click on Format, then Font, and increase the number from 10 to 12 or higher. If you are cutting and pasting to Wordpad, increase the size of the font before you paste. If you are printing directly from a web page, click on view and zoom in before you print.

Prints only on left side of page.


Hello,

In printing web pages and email please try to check also the print setting before you print the page cause word document files and web pages are not the same in there printing setting. Web pages and emails has different setting so my recommendation is that when you print email and webpages next time then please check the printer settings then modify it the same settings as you wish or as your word document's output.
Thanks

I have a c4200 hp Printer cc200-90006 i need to know how to get the printing larger.Can't read my bankstatements to small when I try to copy.


Make sure you have the proper drivers installed for the printer, then cut and paste the information into a word processor or similar that accomidates the desired print format.

Finally, change the text size and print.

The issue is not with the printer, but the program you are using to facilitate the print job. If this is a web based program, look for a "Printer Friendly" print option on the site.

Alternately, you may have limited success in changing the text size under "View" in your browser, and try printing with the larger text size selected, and in use. If truncating occurs in the printing, then you will have to cut and paste the text into a manageable format, like a Word Processor program.

Unable to print screen


Not sure but a workaround would be to cut and paste the document you want into Word and print that way.
