When printing from word the paper jams in printer.. works fine in all other programs

I work at a printing center at my college, sometimes this happens to the students that print. When printing it could be the word document itself: the file could be too big, or the printer could be reading the file wrong. Try saving the word document to a PDF (Print, Print as PDF), then try printing it. That way the printer reads it as a sort of image and not a .doc file, or .wrd file.

Networked the printer with an ip address - will not always print and sometimes it prints just on the top of the page and will do the on MANY pages

Try printing a PCL Font page from the printer itself and see if that prints ok? If it does you probally have a bad driver, try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver.

How do I overcome extremely slow printing, sometimes from an interface with the computer and sometimes just the printer itself?

On a very high resolution setting, a lot of data has to be transfered and that takes time. Sometimes the program generating the data has to re-sample the data which requires massive math work to resize and pixelate the data.

The printer itself may have to do a lot of crunching of the data.

The idea is to lessen the load on the system. Taking a mega-pixel photo from a camera and selecting very high resolution printing can take several minutes just to print one photo.

Printer will print pictures, but won't print documents.

Sometimes this happens because the ink dries in the print head. If multiple cleaning doesn't improve it you can try cleaning the print head itself with alcohol or an electronic spay can type cleaner. This should fix the problem for you. Also resetting the cartridges in the slots sometimes improves the ink flow.

Printing multiple test pages

Check for a sticking button on the printer itself. The big Green button will produce a test print if pushed. Also try disconnecting it from the wall outlet overnight to reset it.

Print from MS Word 03 & e-mail problem

Click this link for updated drivers if you do not already have them.
When you download and install these, if the problem is still there, then you need to go into your printer program and do a printer check and it will print specific characters to show if the printer itself is printing properly.
