The issue could be with an improper installation of the the printer. Uninstall the printer drivers and software and then restart the computer with the prnter disconnected. Reinstalling the drivers after this would be the easiest way to get it fixed. Is still unresolved please let me know.

Rate if useful.

I have re-installed my printer. It prints, but doesn't print anything what's going on?


I think you mean it sheet-feeds but does not print. If so, power off. If network connected, power off the print server. Power all back on after a minute. Depress power button on printer for 10 seconds.

If auto test page prints, problem is with printer configuration on your computer. Check the configuration carefully. Did you uninstall with the HP Scrubber utility before you did the re-install?

In If the test sheet feeds but does not print, use the HP printer utility, check ink levels, check cartridge "expiration", and clean heads several times. Test again.

Problem in color printing


I suggest making sure you installed them correctly, you can take them out and put them back in, it will ask you if you just replaced the cartridges one by one "select yes" if they are new, then try to print out a test sheet (which you do this through one of the options in your "menu" on the machine itself, it should be in your manual or you can look online in the Brother 240-MFC troubleshooting tips for printing, this just happened to me a few days ago and I got the answer there. So, when you print out the test sheet it will probably have colors missing and you say "NO' that it is NOT GOOD, and then it will do another cleaning and then print out another test sheet and hopefully it will work then, otherwise tell it NO again and have it do another cleaning, sometimes it does take a few times. This happened to me the other day when I replaced a black ink cartridge and I could not get ANYTHING TO PRINT, it kept coming out BLANK PAGES, so I went to the troubleshooting tips on the website and this was the advice I was given, it took THREE CLEANINGS and three test sheets before the black boxes printed out fully on the test sheet with none missing and ONLY THEN was I able to print successfully, GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

    If you can see missing short lines, press 2 (NO) and go to Step 7.
  7. The display will then ask you if the print quality is OK for black and three colors. Press 2 (NO) for black or three colors with the problem.
  8. The display will then show START CLEANING? 1.YES 2. NO.
    Press 1 (YES) and the MFC will start cleaning the color ink cartridges.
  9. After the cleaning is finished, press Color (Colour) Start. The MFC/DCP will print another Print Quality Test Sheet.

Will not print test page or documents


  • Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
  • While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
  • Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
  • Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
  • Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
  • To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
  • To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

MY test page always prints


Hi,

I belive that after replacing the INk cartridges, you are experiancing this problem. The Alignment test sheet always prints everytime you turn on the printer, if u haven't completed the Alignment process.

To complete the Alignment process,
>>Once the printer finished printing the Alignmnet test sheet.
>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.


Thank You

Cannot restore the settings of printer like the tear of on the keybord... what did do to restore the settings of this printer... i cannot print  the print out is a symbol . same on the printest on the...


Hi,

To do a Default Setting Mode to an Epson LX300+, you need to:
1. Power OFF the printer (for at least 10 seconds or more);
2. Press Tear Off button while simultaneously powering ON;
3. Release button, maintain power ON, printer will print basic/default settings.

At most times, it is the parallel/printer cable that gets dislodged. loosely connected or perhaps would even require replacement.

Should you want to do a printer self-test on an Epson LX300+:
Printer's Self-Test - The built-in self test function demonstrates that the printer is working properly. You can run the test with either continuous paper or single sheets; this describes the easier way, with single sheets.

* Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
* While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
* Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
* Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
* Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
* To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
* To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Good luck and kind regards.
