If the printer in on and waiting for a print job but the computer says it's off line that means it's not communicating with the printer. Check the cable to make sure it's fully seated on both ends. If everything looks OK then try another cable.

My computer was printing lines within color images. I tried to manually adjust the colored ink. That made things worse. How do I reset the printer back to default auto settings?

start>control panel>printers
select the IP3200 printer
select display printer queue
select IP3200 printer
select printer>properties>printer preferences>defaults>apply
This should set your printer back to the default settings.

Hi, I have a Macbook running Tiger 10.4.11. I have yet to figure out a way to print in black and white from safari. HELP!

When you go to print (apple/p) and the dialog box comes up (lists printer, presets, copies, etc)
There should be a gray horizontal line across the middle of this dialog box. Note the drop down box that is on this gray line ... this is an important drop down box. When you select different items in this box, all the options underneath the gray line change.
The selection in this box is probably "Layout" by default. Change it to look at the different options, but as things change below the gray line don't get confused about which is the "main" selector drop down for changing all the options .. it's the one on the gray line ....
I'm using an HP printer, and when I select "Paper Type/Quality" in this drop down, I get an option under the gray line that says "color" -- the options in that box include the option for "Grayscale"
If I were to select Grayscale, then the printer will print only in black and white and shades of gray.
That's the easiest way to do what you want, and it will apply to any program you are printing from, since you are selecting "Grayscale" from the print dialog.

Look through all the different variables in the print dialog to become familiar with them.
If you often use one particular setting and don't want to have to go through the sometimes confusing search through the drop downs, since they change back to their defaults each time you print, then you can set a "Preset" - this will remember your settings and allow you to get to them easily ...
To do this, first select all the options the way you like them, for example you might select Grayscale under the Color option under the Print Quality section. Then, before you actually print anything, go the the top where it says "Presets" and do a "Save As" and choose a Preset name that will be meaningful to you ... like "grayscale" -
Next time you print, keep an eye on the preset - it may NOT go back to the default of "Standard." It may stay on the last-used Preset ... so keep an eye on it before hitting the print button.

Hope this helps!

How do l reset my OKI c9650 yellow drum, l have the fuse but didn't came with the manual. In addition the printer has been saying the top cover is not closed though it looks like its all closed well.

The printer must be put back into "Shipping Mode" in order for the consumable counters to reset.

In order to place the printers back in “Shipping Mode,” do the following:

    1. Shut down the printer and press RESTART. Press and hold the [UP], [DOWN] and [HELP] keys at the same time while
    restarting the printer. Hold the keys until the display reads "Please Wait" to go to the System Maintenance Mode.
    2) Press + or - until "Engine Diag" Mode is displayed; press Enter and Diagnostic Mode xx.xx.xx will be displayed
    3) Press and hold both Enter & On-line simultaneously until Eng Diag Level3 is displayed

    4) Press + or - until Local Parameter Set is displayed; release and press Enter

    5) Press + or - until it displays Factory Mode; if it displays Factory Mode Twice with an asterisk next to one then it is in Factory Mode; Press Enter, Press + or - until it displays Factory Mode & Shipping Mode on the display; then press and hold On-line & Cancel simultaneously; when it stops blinking an asterisk should be displayed next to Shipping Mode, which becomes the default mode.

    6) Power printer off then on to complete the procedure.

Printer is offline My printer is off line----how do I get it back on line? When I open the control panel and look at my printers, it states that the laserjet 4M is off line. However, the printer itself...

Go back to your printer setting and right click on that printer and make sure it is set to default. then if you have multiple printers make sure their is not on default as well

Printer keeps becoming the Default printer

You could try checking in control panel -> printers -> right click each printer and choose set as deafualt -> Only thing is You will probably have to log in as each user (staff) that it occurs with and check these settings.

Also check any printer settings for the application that You use to do labels etc.

Check with each users log on that it doesnt work with
