Question about Computers & Internet
The first thing to do is to rule out human error. Check that the printer is in the
“on-line” state. Make sure there is paper in the printer (if it is a cheque
printing problem, replace Quicken cheques with regular paper). If you are
printing over a network, try printing locally.
Check Print Manager for stalled print documents
Double-click the Print Manager icon in the Main group or choose Run from the
File menu, type PRINTMAN and press Enter. If there are documents listed
under the printer name, then click the first one to highlight it and, if Print
Manager says it is stalled, press the DEL key to delete it from the list. This
will allow stalled or new print jobs to print.
If Quicken used to print everything correctly before The WPR.DAT file may have become corrupted. This file contains the Windows printer information which Quicken utilises. To correct this, exit Quicken, go to File Manager and select the Quickenw directory. Locate the WPR.DAT file, highlight it and go to File, Rename and rename it to OLD.DAT. Exit File Manager, restart Quicken and attempt printing again.
See if the printer can receive anything at all
“Port blast” from DOS. At the C:\> prompt, key in “type autoexec.bat>lpt1” If this does not print out the root directory to the local printer, the printer is not able to get any information from the system at all.
See if anything prints out from Windows
If you can port blast, try printing from Write to see if Windows is having a problem communicating with the printer. Do not use another application to do this. Some programs such as Word Perfect do not Windows for printing. Make sure Write is printing to the same printer as Quicken is. If Write can't print, this implies the problem is not with Quicken.
When “Garbage” is printed
Garbage generally indicates that the printer does not understand the language Windows is communicating in.
Verify the correct driver is being used
In Control Panel. Printers, make sure the correct driver is installed. If not click on Add to select the correct printer from the installed printer list. You can also get printer drivers mailed to you from the printer manufacturer.
