Your printers are either set up differently - make sure their settings are identical!

or the drivers are not sending the same information... if you can use Postscript drivers then do so - that will solve the driver problem.

Otherwise, it is necessary for you to create templates for the different printers so that the output is consistent regardless of which printer you are sending to.

Printer takes forever to print


How is the printer connected to your computer(s)?
If it is USB or network. Try a different cables.

Does your computer run slow also? Low disk space can cause print jobs to print slowly.

Network issues can cause slow printing as well. If your printer is on network and there is a mismatch of 10/100 Mbps speed or Half/Full duplex, the printing can be slow.

If your OS is Windows, remove the printer from Printers and Faxes. Uninstall the driver package if installed separately. Download the latest drivers and install them and reinstall the printer.

It won't print went i call for it to print the


No, First I would suggest is that you check the Print Queue to determine if a job is hung in the queue.

On a Windows Platform, on the bottom right of the screen you should see a small printer icon. Double clicking the icon opens the print queue. Once you get the queue opened, highlight the hung job (it will more than likely show as printing) and then cancel it.

Printed colours doesn't match with monitor colours


Here is a list of reasons why colours on electronic designs might differ from printed designs:
  • Monitors work in the RGB (Red,Green,Blue) colour space while printers use the CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) colour space.
    Designs look fine on a monitor if they are designed in RGB to begin with. Converting them to CMYK might make them look odd on screen, but they will print correctly, to a certain measure. It is difficult to sign of an image file that is currently in CMYK mode while viewing with an RGB monitor.
  • Monitor settings differ.
    The designer was sitting in a darkish room when choosing the blue and his blue looks vibrant. The client was viewing the same design in a well-lit room, making the blue seem lighter. The designer uses an LCD display and the client uses a CRT monitor and the vibrancy differs. The contrast and saturation settings on each monitor might differ as well, rendering the blue with different values.
  • Each printer in the world prints colour slightly different.
    Sometimes it is really obvious and sometimes it is almost impossible to see the difference. Normal desktop printers are definitely not something to do colour proofing with. If you print the design out on your desktop printer then a slight shortage on any of the colours will make the colour come out wrong. There are a lot of factors that can influence even the most expensive printing equipment. These include altitude, humidity, the current heat of the printer, age of the printer, quality of ink, the paper that is being used, special coatings on the paper etc. Even viewing the same printed material in different lighting conditions may make the colour seem different.
Tips on getting the most accurate colour
Go to your nearest printer company and ask to see their Pantone colour matching system. Each colour in the Pantone chart has a matching number. Most design applications have the same Pantone charts built in so that colour matching is easy. Read up on Pantone at Wikipedia. Make sure that the file is converted to CMYK (If not designed in it originally) before sending it to print. Some printer companies might ask for colour separation prints which the leading design packages can produce. It is also important for the designer to choose the correct colour management profile in the design package.

1. unable to store job at printer. 2. Insufficient disk space for this job. 3. Delete some files from the disk before resending this job


That is actually telling you that your computer doesn't have enough free space to store the print data before it sends it to the printer. Under accessories run the clean disk utility and try to free up some space. As well you can empty your recycle bin and from your web browser clean out your cache. Those will usually do the trick. You can also cause this is you are trying to print at some real super high settings that aren't needed. The printer might do it but you may not need it or even be able to see the difference past a certain quality.

Color isn't true


You'll need to calibrate your screen and your printer - calibration is required for every set of paper and ink you use. It's quite a science and an art. I suggest you google "colour space" "printer calibration" "gamut" etc and read up on it. Alternatively you could spend a few hundred quid on a printer calibration tool, either the Colormunki or the Spyder print studio.

It still won't match perfectly, as the way color is created on a screen differs hugely for to how it is produced on paper.

Start with a properly calibrated screen first though (my money is on the Spyder elite screen calibrator and spyder print calibrator)

I'm a pro photographer and I print my own photos - full system calibration is the only way. www.yourhandinmine.co.uk

Character spacing when printing 2 pages on A4


Hi,

Hope this gives you an idea. When printing from your pc, please select print properties to draft/best printing resolution. We'll see the difference between fast draft to best. Else you'll have to allign the printer settings from your pc, using the printers alignment tool.

Best regards,

There is a gap in the letters


Sounds like a communication error between the printer and the computer - may sound weird, but either try a different USB port or a different cable.

Doesn't pront the whole picture


Will it print it's own status page? or a page of just basic text? Are you printing a picture? You may need more than 30+ Megabytes of free disk space for the print job to spool.
0) Verify your Hard Disk has enough free space.
1) turn printer off for 1-2 min. Turn back on and try again.
2) Reboot the computer and try again.
3) Shutdown all other programs and try printing again.
4) Try printing from another program. (ie. while reading this, click print ;-) )
5) unplug printer from wall and computer; remove driver; reinstall from original disk.
6) Try printer on a different computer

If this does not help; take two aspirin and call back !

Good luck!

Documents in single space print in double space


There may be a dip switch somewhere on the printer which enables/disables the extra linefeed. If both CR (carriage return) & LF (linefeed) are both enabled, you will get the double-spacing. In years past, I've run a few different Epson dot matrix printers, and seems like they had such a dip switch. Also, on the software end, you may be able to disable either CR or LF- check in your printer driver software.
