I loaded the windows update driver and connected my PSC 2115 all in one printer. It prints text documents and the test page without any issues. It displays images in print prieview but won't print them.


You need to get the manual for this printer, it has a printing language all it's own. The encoded text tells it where to put the bar code on the label, how to encode it, what text to put under it, etc. It's looking for a specially designed print file that's plain text. There may be a way to turn that off and turn it into a bitmap printer, but you would need the manual for that.

Hello, the printer will not print out forms either from a adobe pdf file or from the internet; it leaves the page blank or just prints out the grids but no text.Please can you help?


Hi. Try turning off the image sharpening in the print settings.
For Windows, open the file and go to File > Print > Preferences/Properties in the Print window> Image Enhancement tab in the Lexmark 4500 Series Printing Preferences > choose None for Image Sharpening. Hit ok. Click Apply to save settings. Hit print to start printing. For Macintosh, open the file > go to File > Print > Print Settings > Advanced Settings > Image Sharpening > adjust setting to None. Try to print. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Unable to print text documents


Some times image/picture files are very big files. That big size, in mega-bytes, some times conflicts with your amount of available memory. It could effect the print que or ram. Try running the file through a picture editing program edit the files then rename and save them. You can check the file size prior and then after you run the file through the program. If the file size is lowered it should print.

TO Print the image using IPL.


I've printed images over 500kb. Can you print a small image? If not, perhaps the driver is the problem.

If you're trying to send a text file of IPL commands to the printer, set up a Generic Text printer driver, to to send the file as ascii characters instead of as a graphic image. You can set this up in addition to your Intermec driver.

Go to Printers and Faxes, Add Printer, Next, Select the Port, Select "Generic" Manufacturer, "Generic / Text Only" Printer, and give it a name like "Text". Cycle the printer power to clear previous attempts, then print the file to this printer name.

Same lines won't print


Sorry, but this is impossible, as a "printer problem". This is clearly a "software/buffer/document" problem.

This can ONLY happen (on two printers, same results) if the DOCUMENT has "exclusive" properties or instruction sets, or "invalid data" for the "missing" lines. For example, you may be printing an HTML document with "DO NOT CACHE" meta tag or java instructions about specific lines or form entries. Many sites (like banks, registration, or encrypted mail/login pages) do this as a security measure to prevent critical data from being inadvertently printed (and ending up outside in trash cans for an ID thief to pilfer). Other possibilities: The lines are NOT text data, they might be IMAGES of text, and saved in a format the printer/buffer does not support. Any of these examples would allow the software to DISPLAY the specific (missing) lines of text -yet NOT print them.

To test my theory (almost a certainty really), simply open the document and select PRINT SCREEN key (or use whatever key commands capture the screen as an image). This copies what YOU see, to the clipboard as a single "image" file (instead of a variety of ASCII characters, images, and code).

Next, open "PAINT" in accessories under MSlop (or any IMAGE editor like Photoshop, Gimp, etc)

Select NEW and agree to the screen size you are using (1024x768, 800x600, 1280x800, etc)

Select PASTE from file menu (or CTRL/V keys). Your document will now appear.

Print the document. The "missing lines" will now show up! If the document is too long for one screen shot, you may have to scroll down, recapture (PRINT SCREEN, etc) and paste one or more images into each other before printing it as a single IMAGE.
