Printer won't print

Hi there;
My lasar printer doesn't want to print. It was making this funny clicking noise when I would try to print. It would grab the paper but it would stop feeding and get stuck and I would have to almost rip the paper out to unstick it. Now it's not making that noise anymore but it won't feed the paper at all and the "alarm" button is on continuously.

I have a feeling that there is paper stuck inside where I can't get to it without removing some screws which I'm hesitant to do....I have pulled the toner cartrige out and looked everwhere I could. Please help!!

You will have to lift all the compartments up and look for any loose paper.

When the printer is powered on, it makes a tweeting noise, and the display is blank.

Have you tired unplugging it for 5 minutes to reset the programming? If that doesn't work you likely have a failed printer, since printers have become dirt cheap for the home it is better to just replace it than try and fix it.

Won't print...says printer is on pause


According to your problem, first check the printer settings. Go to the Printer and faxes wizard in control panel. Right click on printer, if you fond there Resume printing then click on it. It will make printer working. Then reboot the printer and the system both. If it doesn't help you then there is the problem of printer software. Reinstall printer driver/ software again and reboot the both.

My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.

Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

Printer will not print e-mails


Once you give print command of an email, your email program should ask you to select printer.

If you are using MS Office, by default One Note printer might be selected.

Please check which printer is assigned when you click print.

I hope this information helps.
