Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

If I select PRINT w/ control/print; print from the menu; or print from the document, it will not print. Won't print from Internet or XP or Word Pad I've tried disconnecting computer and printer; ran test page; researched printer through START/ CONTROL and MY COMPUTER. Test page printed. It lists what hasn't been printed. But won't print waiting or completed jobs. I have a feeling it's a simple solution, I just can't see it. It's on manual and sleep, could that be the problem? Tried to turn off sleep going into ecology menu. No luck. Thank you for your thoughts.

Printer won.t print ..... Before it stop printing it was throwing out a page that I was printing and wouldn't stop.


Go to the printers folder; Control panel/printers and there right click on the printer icon and select open. You should see some print jobs queued up. delete them, restart the system and try to print again. If this doesn't work, Go to the printers folder; Control panel/printers and there right click on the printer icon and select properties. In the pop up menu go to the advanced tab and look for hold mismatched documents and uncheck its box. If you do not find it under the advanced tab, skip through all the tabs to see which one has the "hold mismatched documents" option and uncheck it and click OK to exit. Now try to print again.

Good luck & god bless!

Single page printing


OK, well when printing from the internet it quite often only prints the screen you are on, I presume, because you likes what you read, you wish to print it, well as you are on Page 3 the end of the document, thats what get printed. You actually, need to go to the File Menu, select, Print, and actually select, the type of print, there are options, Print ALL, Print Page, Print Selection, you need to set that, it sometimes remembers a setting and perhaps 3 was the last setting.. In any event don't just "Hit Print" you have to do as related, I am not sure if you can set up special "Print Now" parameters, but I expect you can, choose a "Default" setting.

Have Microsoft Windows XP.....purchased HP Officejet J5780 all in


Before you print, look at the print preview. If it shows your document, then the problem is with the printer. If the page is shown blank, the problem is different. Check your Print dialogue screen (File menu, then Print to see the dialogue screen) . have a look what you have selected under the item Page Range. I believe you have clicked SELECTION without actually selecting anything on the document.If that is the case, undo it by clicking on another option
Best of luck

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..

Document locked in que


Solution #1 Have you tried to power off the computer itself? The document is most likely locked in the PC not the printer. Unplug the printer's power, power down the computer, wait a minute or so then restart the computer. Once the machine has loaded check the print queue to verify the document is no longer there, if so you can plug the printer back in and the issue should be resolved.

Solution #2
From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Then follow this path:
Administrative Tools > Services > Print Spooler
Once at the Print Spooler, right click on it. Select Stop. Leave this window open. Turn off your printer.
At the open Print Spooler window, right click on the Print Spooler, and select Start.
Go to the Start menu, and select Printers & Faxes. Find the printer you are having problems with and double click on it. From the menu, select Printer, then select Cancel All Documents. The documents should clear.
Turn on your printer. You sould now be able to print.
