    Since you have not made clear what you mean I an going to guess. Usb cable connected? Plugged in? drivers installed? more than likely the printer and computer are ok. How much memory is in the computer?

hi,
Ink-backup mode lets you continue printing with one print
cartridge when the other print cartridge has run out of ink.
Ink-backup mode allows the printer to operate using only one print cartridge. It is initiated
when a print cartridge is removed from the cradle.
Exiting Ink Backup mode
Install two print cartridges in the printer to exit ink-backup mode.


Cheers !!!!

Unable to install Epson TM-U220B[U220 with UB-U02III usb interface] on Windows 7 AND XP!


Hi!

Are you using a third party USB adapter or a USB interface? On the self test page that you printed does it say USB connection or something that will say about USB? or does it say parallel or serial connection? try to check the dip switches setting if its configured properly. visit epsonexperts.com site for more info.

Printer will print only the first page even if you check all pages


Does it do it with other programs?

it sounds like you have a header or footer problem. Go to it in your word processor and delete any special settings that are listed in there.

I AM ON THE WINDOWS XP AFTER INSTALLING THE DRIVER THE TEST PAGE IS PRINTED BY THE PRINTER BUT ON GIVING COMMAND FOR OTHER PRINTING THE PRINTER DOES NOT PRINT


Got to: start>settings(classic view)>control panel>printers and faxes.
An icon for your printer should be there. Right click the printer icon and select "use as default". While in control panel, you can run the troubleshooter. Sometimes it works. Sometimes the software doesn't install correctly. Uninstall the software from the add/remove software in control panel, then re-install the printer software.

Pixma IP3000 will not print


try to do this set of instruction & solution:

  1. Go to Start | Control Panel | Printers And Other Hardware | Printers And Faxes. Double-click the icon for your printer to open the Documents window and clear any pending print jobs by selecting Cancel All Documents from the Printer drop-down menu
  2. Try printing a test page from the printer, not from Windows XP. Most printers have a built-in test function that's activated by holding down one or more buttons while the printer is starting up. Check your printer's user manual for instructions. If this page prints successfully, you know the problem is either with your connection or with the software in your computer.
  3. Check your printer's USB or parallel connection.
  4. Try printing something simple from Windows' Notepad. To open Notepad, go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | Notepad, type a few lines of text in a document, and try printing it. If it successfully prints, the problem is with the software program you originally tried to print from.
  5. Try printing using Windows XP's generic printer driver. Open and run the Add Printer Wizard. When you get to the Install Printer Software screen, select Generic under Manufacturer and Generic/Text Only under Printers (see Figure 2).
  6. Select No for Do You Want To Use This Printer As The Default Printer? (see Figure 3). Click Next.
  7. When prompted on the next screen, tell Windows XP to print a test page. If the page successfully prints, then you probably have a problem with your installed printer driver. Either update or reinstall the driver.

Not accepting command to print. The printer is OK.


Go to control panel, printers, find the printer you have, right click, see properties, bottom of page print test, see what happens. Did it ever print. Deleate printer, turn computer off turn on XP or Vista should find printer and install. Then test again as above.

Continuous garbage text when connected to pc


In reading this HP forum I have found many other LaserJet 1100 owners who are trying to do the same thing as you.

Many of them recommend various cable solutions from Sewell. When you contact Sewell, make sure to specify your printer model, and ask what specific cables and/or adapters you need to make it work vis USB. They sound quite knowledgeable, and seem to have dealth with this before.
