It just won't work. The light is green but I send a document to the printer and nothing happens. When I turn it on the light is red but if I put the "job cancel" button it will got to green.


Go to "Printers and Faxes" in the "Control Panel" and check to see if your printer shows any documents waiting to be printed, Cancel these documents and Right click your printer icon
select "Properties" and select "Print Test Page" to test your connection...For varies reasons documents sometimes fail to print and the printer queue backs up

Printer won't print documents. Green light on


Hmmm, try feeding a sheet of paper into the manual feed slot... you might have inadvertantly sent a Manual feed job, and the printer is waiting for a sheet to be fed by you.

I am trying to print a document ,i press the print icon and nothing happens. the print icon is at the bottom of the srceen awaiting print but nothing.


There could a lot of possible things happening right now. For one you could have a previous job that didn't finish. So delete all jobs from the print queue. Then go to control panel and go into printers and faxes. Make sure that the printer you are trying to use is set to the default and is ready. Then try and print to that printer again and double check when printing to make sure your printing to the correct printer. If you still need further assistance let me know.
thank you,

Printer not printing


Go to the printer properties and make sure there is not a previous print job. Cancel all print jobs. Then send a test print to the printer.

Problem printing from my acer aspire one


Can you provide a little more information. Is the printer green power light on but neither of the red lights. Does the printer just sit there doing nothing, or does it go through the motions of printing and produce a blank sheet. If it does nothing, can you check the print queue (double click the printer icon). If there are a mass of jobs waiting (all the times you've attempted to print something), right click and select cancel all jobs. When the print list is clear, right click the printer icon and select properties. Now click on test print. If nothing happens as before, cancel this job also. Then go to control panel and uninstall the Epson printer software (the "driver"). Reboot and reinstall the printer driver. Report back if it's still not behaving.

The Paper light keeps flashing when theres paper in the printer


A few things could be happening here.

1. Clear the print queue, and if there are jobs that won't delete, reboot the computer.
2. Now clear the jobs on the printer (cancel job button) until the status light turns green.
3. Put a piece of paper in the manual feed tray on the front.
4. Print a test page.
If the test page prints to the paper in the manual feed tray, then it is set as the default tray. Go into the printer settings and change it to "auto" or tray 1. If the test page prints to tray 1, but the original document you tried to print (when it got stuck) still won't print, cancel the job. Now, again, put paper in the manual feed tray. Try to print the document again and if it pulls from there, go into page setup of your document and change the setting from "manual" to "auto" or tray 1. Clear the job again (if it's stuck) and you should be able to print again. Hope this helps. This is one of the most common solutions - it happens a lot, especially with documents that are emailed from other people and once they get stuck in the queue, nothing will print (except the test pages directly from the printer, like you describe).
