Hey im trying to help my sister out with some documents, only it was originally 4 pages which ive manged to get down to 2 double sided documents (ie 2 pages back to front) and now i cant seem to be able to...

Open the saved document then click file print. Then when the print page comes up on your screen set the printer to print to as Microsoft Document Writer. Which is a virtual printer. Then click print, save the file on your computer either my Documents or on the Desktop. Click print.
It will then print your document to a file.

This file can then be attached to an e-mail.
Let me know how it goes!

Take care!

How to get a Canon MG5220 printer to print 2-sided copies

If you have a Canon MG5220 you certainly can print two-sided. I have one and I print two=sided pages. When you bring up your print menu underneath "Orientation" is a small window that likely says "layout". Click that window and you will have various options to choose from; color matching, paper handling, cover page, quality media color options. borderless printing and duplex printing & margin. Choose Duplex & Margin. Once you've clicked that you'll see a check box for duplex printing, click that box. You have other options for for reduced or normal printing (your choice) and then if you're stapling there's options for the side you'd prefer but the point is once you've checked off that box for duplex printing you're set to go.

Can't print

Three years unused cartridges might have become really very tough by now. The heads must be clogged and really very hard. Please dip it (cartridge head) in a bowl of warm water (only the head portion), if possible, **** out some of its contents or you can use the refill kit to do some suction job (use soft tissue paper or cotton to wipe off the head after doing this). I would suggest you to replace the cartridges. Good luck. Thanks for using FixYa.

My printer prints email etc. but will not print anything from my computer...example: word documents

I assume you mean that you can print from Outlook or other e-mail program (Outlook Express, LiveMail, Thunderbird). Are you reading your e-mail on the same computer that can't print Word documents?

If yes, one thing to try is to change the font on the Word document. For some reason, certain fonts just do not work. (Most often it is an issue with a document (or template) created on a different computer (or before upgrading the OS) and the font info gets scrambled in the transfer.) Just select all (control-A or Edit, Select All) and choose a new font. If the document has multiple fonts, do not use select all but highlight the sections separately and change the font.

If it is a different computer, check that the network is active and that all the correct drivers are installed. (One thing to check is a Universal Print Driver (UPD) software needs both the 32 and 64 bit drivers if the network has a mix of OS's. This comes up when the printer is attached to one computer and it serves as the print server.)

A940 printer. Diagnostic page looks perfect.

Seems to me a software problem.
Try uninstalling & re-installing the printer drivers & see if this helps.

Prints blank pages

hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.

Canon MF 4100 prints one page at a time

This certainly sounds like a software problem and seems to be common with PDF documents that change font types. Also it might be worth checking that you elected to print all pages of the document, remove the job from the print queue and try again.

Some fonts might not be available to use in the printer, make certain it's a true-type font you are using in your document.

Ping works, I can see the html page in the AR-205 but can't print

If you connect the machine to network via AR NB3 and EB 9, go to key operator program in the html page, hopefully the password still the default "Sharp", try test page printing. Also check the account control from the machine's panel by pressing special function, key operator program, password ( 00000 ) account control and un-check the account control for printer.
