My printer will not print still after I troubleshoot it and everything. I have a netbook laptop so I don't know why it's not printing. It says it's ready and everything


Problem Print job does not print; No Lexmark job status window Solution What you will see


  • The Windows print queue spools the print job.
  • The print queue icon appears in the systray or notification area.
  • The print queue icon disappears as if the print job has successfully been sent to the printer.
  • The print job disappears and does not print.
  • No Lexmark job status window appears to indicate a communication problem.
  • No other communication errors. This issue is most likely due to a corrupt device mode registry entry from another printer that was installed and used in the past.
Or
  • You do see the job status window and you do not see any alerts or communication errors, yet still nothing gets printed

What to do

A confirmed cause must be established before a resolution can be achieved.
To do this:

  1. download a diagnosis tool that will help determine the cause of the printing issue.
    IMPORTANT: Again, this tool is only to be used in cases where there is no communication error message from the Lexmark job status window and the job spools quickly through the Windows spooler, yet nothing prints.
  2. Select an easy-to-find Save location, such as your Windows Desktop.
  3. Double-click on the delserDevMode.exe file.
  4. Accept the License Agreement. After the file is executed, it saves devmode.txt to your root directory (e.g., C:\devmode.tx.

Hello guys, i´ll be very


Issue Print jobs are stuck in the print queue (spooler) on a computer running Microsoft Windows connected to the print server. Nothing prints, and the print job in the printer's queue shows a status of Printing . These print jobs cannot be deleted even on the server, and it will not disappear or print until the Print Spooler service is restarted. Solution For Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, a fix is available in Microsoft Knowledge Base Article, The Print Spooler service may stop sending print jobs to a printer that uses the standard port monitor on a Windows Server 2003-based computer . Click here to view Microsoft Knowledge Base Article 934885 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934885) . To prevent this issue from occurring, disable the bidirectional printing support for each HP printer driver installed. To do this, perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start , point to Settings , click Printers , right-click the icon representing the printer to be modified, and then click Properties .
  2. Click Ports , click to clear the Enable Bidirectional Support check box, and then click OK .
NOTE: Sharing a printer over a network is a feature of Microsoft Windows and not HP printer specific.

HP3600 USB printer works but won't print on my HP7058 Laptop


Try removing all ports from your laptop, then reboot, and then create just one USB port. Also, go to your hardware devices and make sure your usb ports don't have any question marks or yellow warning symbols. Be sure first that the drivers for your USB ports are installed and working first. This sounds either a faulty USB cord, which does happen, or USB drivers issues in your laptop. The printer is probably not the problem here.

Need to print a report of past print jobs


If you have CentreWare IS you can do the following (taken from the manual):
You can find the manual link here: http://www.office.xerox.com/userdoc/P6250/6250_Web/pdfs/reference_guide.pdf

On page 97 of the manual it states:

Using Printer Management Features


Job Accounting

The printer stores information about print jobs in a log file. The log file is stored either in the
printer’s memory or on an optional hard disk if one is installed in the printer. If the log file is
stored in the printer’s memory, it is lost when the printer is reset. It is recommended that a hard
disk be used for job accounting.

The log file lists job records. Each record contains fields such as user name, job name, pages
printed, job times, and toner and ink used. Not all fields are supported by all printers. For
information go to CentreWare IS online help or CentreWare Web online help.

The job accounting values reported vary depending on the protocol and print command used
when each job was printed. For example, using NPRINT over NetWare provides the printer
with the most information about the job being printed. When using Windows and NetWare, the
job name is often LST: or LST:BANNER. Other jobs from other ports may provide less
information about the job.

Job accounting is available through CentreWare IS and CentreWare Web.
Using CentreWare IS

1. Launch your web browser.
2. Enter your printer's IP address in the browser’s Address field (http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx).
3. On the right side of the main CentreWare IS page, click Jobs.

The “Job Accounting Links” page provides links that enable you to browse, download, and
clear job accounting records.

For complete information on CentreWare IS job accounting, including clearing job
information, downloading job information to a file, and job accounting file formats, go to
CentreWare IS Online Help.


Hope this helps!

Can't print a complete print job without problems


There may just be some type of configuration issue going on if you don't have a drive installed in this printer. If there is no drive installed the printer drivers may be functioning as if there's one present which results in this error. I'm providing you with a few possible solutions as it is more difficult to pinpoint an issue when you don't have access to the device.

If it is a configuration issue you can try these steps:

1. Mopier mode should be disabled.
Right-click printer then click properties.
You should find a device settings tab...scroll down to mopier
mode and make sure it's disabled.

2. Printer Hard Disk should be disabled.
Right-click printer then click properties.
Go to the Device Settings tab...scroll down to Printer Hard Disk
and make sure it's disabled.

3. If you had to disable one or both features then the very last thing that you want to do is try printing a multiple page document to see if this worked.

If you check these two settings and find that both the mopier mode and printer hard disk are disabled then you can try this:

Click this sentence to follow the link to HP's driver and software page for the 4600 series printers. Find your operating system in the list and click on it. This will bring you to the page with drivers, firmware, and additional software provided for your printer type. Try downloading the drivers (unless you have the installation CD) and reinstalling the printer. Also, make sure that you have the latest Service Pack installed for your operating system. If you're using Windows XP then the latest Service Pack is 3.

Hope this helps. I work with HP printers and sometimes I have to try more than one solution before I find the right fix.

Epson printer won't print


That sounds a lot like the print spooler has suffered some kind of problem...

Try the following:
  • Click START > Run
  • Type "MMC" and click OK
  • Click on the "File" menu then "Add/Remove Snap-in"
  • Click on "Add..."
  • Select the "Services" snap-in and then click "Add"
  • Select "Local Computer" and then click "Finish"
  • Click "Close" and "OK"
  • Select the "Services (Local)" line
Tip: This is the same thing as going to Control Panel > Adminstrative Tools > Services

From here you:
  • locate the "print spooler" service
  • Right click and choose "Restart"
This will restart the print spooler.

If the spooler is the problem you should be able to send a print job to the printer and it should now start printing.

If not then the chances are this is either a port misconfiguration or a driver error in which case you should try:
  • unplugging the printer (leave it unplugged for now)
  • uninstalling the drivers and software for your printer,
  • restarting your computer
  • download the latest drivers from the epson website
  • install these newest drivers (plug in the printer when prompted to do so)
If the port was misconfigured this SHOULD solve the issue but there's no guarantees... If you're still having issues, post again and we'll go from there..

Hope this helps.

Print error job storage


The printer needs to have RAM drive off, mopier mode disabled. Also the device settings for the printer needs to have Printer Hard Disk set to not installed and job storage and mopier mode set to disabled.

X5150 and Vista print issue


I am posting this in hopes of helping others that are having issues with the Vista print spooler. In my case, I have an HP Pavilion laptop running Vista connected to a wireless hub. I also have a Minolta Konica 2300DL printer that is connected to the network via the wireless hub as well. Ever since obtaining this laptop, I have not been able to print to the printer other than stopping and starting the print spooler to obtain a single print 'job'. After about six months I found a post that contains the fix - I cannot take credit for it! Follow these instructions to get your printer to work:

1.) Go into control panel - I would suggest classic view as it is a little easier to navigate.

2.) Then go into User Accounts.

3.) From User Accounts go into Turn User Account Control On or Off

4.) UNCHECK Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer.

5.) At this point you will probably require a reboot.

Once this exercise is complete, you should be able to print. One more item off of my Honey DOO list!!!!!
