While having a live chat i was informed the text would go to my print buffer....fine @! But I don't know what that is or how to access it. Can you help me ?


You don't say which operating system you are using.

The print buffer is an area where the printer stores a small list of the instructions given by the user ahead of what it is doing in real time (for example you can press print for 2 or 3 different documents while the printer is printing the first one and the printer will keep and remember the information for the subsequent documents in its buffer and print them in sequence, when it has finished printing the current document).

Feel free to add a comment to this question to explain the problems you are having with your printer, if this answer does not cover your specific problem.

Your printer has a small memory cache built into it that can store several pages of printing and print instructions ahead of what it is printing in real time. In the event of an error the memory cache can become full and be in a state where it accepts no more instructions.

If this happens:

Start (Contorl Panel) > (category View) > Hardware & Sound > Printer > double click on yhe printer's icon > highlight and cancel any documents pending > power off the printer > disconnect the printer cable > restart the computer > power the printer on > reconnect th eprinter cable > test print.

I hope this helps.

When printing, sentences over lap so the document is unreadable. Also it may only print the first line of a document.


I've seen word documents do this sometimes and fixing it has worked differently each time.

1) Open the document and press CTRL + A (select all) on the keyboard and then CTRL + C (copy), then start a new document and press CTRL + V (paste). Save the new document as something different and try printing again.

2) Open the document again and select all and copy again,but this time open wordpad (a different program to Microsoft Word) by going to Start > Programs > Accessories > Wordpad, and paste the text into wordpad. This may change some of the formatting. Now, select all again, and copy, and start a new word document and paste.

Copying the text out of word and back in seems to work more often. Sometimes the best program to copy out to is notepad, but you lose pretty much all of the formatting when you copy back into word.

3) If this doesn't work, you could try to update your printer drivers, and if that doesn't work, as a last resort, you can delete the printer and create it again via the Control Panel > Printers.

Hp psc 1510 wont print some pdf files (blank pages come out)

I've run across this a few times. And its always the pdf you really wanted not the one you just finished printing (Sound familiar? ;-])

Assuming the pdf is not corrupted then you can be missing a font which you fix by telling it to use one you have. Or if that's not it try printing it in greyscale only. I have had issues with printing color pdfs that work when you print them black and white.

When printing email most of the text is missing

This usually ocurrs because your printer margins are incorrect.
At your email program or at your word program Do a preview first and set the margins
Use the option (fit the doc to a one page)
Check how many pages are demanding your document, and delete the unnecesary pages
Check your printer setting in your email program or in your word document
Check if your printer is using "landscape" instead of "portrait"
And try printing again.

Thank you for using FIXYA!
Have a great day!

A940 printing issue sounds more like a software issue, than a hardware issue. Can you check on all version updates for the software from MSoft, and ensure that the drivers for your printer, by application, are up to date. From what I'm seeing, this MAY not be a printer issue.

and, if you want, we do this sort of service call remotely. see my link here for more on that.

There's a profile link on top right, that may be of some value, if this becomes unsolvable from your end.
