You need to get the software which is the disk that came with the printer you can go to the website of the maker of the printer and download it from there (should be able to) and it might be better if you can use the USB if not thats fine but you need the drivers for the printer to work

First of all, check to see if the computer recognize the printer properly. Right click on My Computer, click on Properties, click on Hardware, and click on Device Manager. In this page click on the + sign next to Ports (COM and LPT). If you see your printer next to (LPT) then it has been recognize by the computer. Now, did you try to test page the printer? That is the first step to a TS. Go to Control panel, Printers and Faxes, right click on the printer that you are having problem with, and click Properties. Here you will see, under the General Tab, Test Page, click it and wait to see if it prints.

How do I make a test page for my printer to check color.


You need to clarify :
1. Your printer cannot print color even though it prints color well from a test page;
2. Your printer cannot print color in a test print page.

If it is the first one, then you have to set it properly in Window Print Configuration page of that printer;
If it is the second one, then you have to check whether you have installed the color ink cartridge properly in the printer. If the color ink cartridge is installed properly, try to replace another new color ink cartridge. Finally it is still not work, then you have to bring back to the repair center.

Can't get printer to print in color


...before anyone can answer. Do you have the latest print driver loaded for that printer? Don't know anything about Softplan but I do know that it relies on the printer's Windows print driver. Can you print in color from other applications to that printer successfully? Can you print in color from Softplan to other printers? Is there a "Print in black only" mode in the driver that might be selected? Is your Softplan configured to output CMYK or RGB (in Perferences or Setup, e.g.)?

you went into the printer settings and turned off your color printing, it's actually pretty easy to turn back on.

( I'm assuming you're working on windows XP - if not, the directions should still get you to the same place)

click: start, settings, printers. in the printers, right click on the DJ 920c, and left click properties.

when the properties page comes up, on the bottom you should see a button called 'printing preferances. click on that, and then click on the 'Paper/Quality' tab. on the bottom there, you should see the selection for color/black-white - hit that to color, hit apply/ok, and apply/ok again, and try printing, and the color should be restored.

please let me know if this works. :)

Printer won't print properly


the problem is in the driver, try to install the GDI driver or post script , i think you can change this from driver setting, and if your printing color pdf files and it gives you this, this means the driver setting is wrong, try color microsoft word test and check if it gives you the same result.

Best Regards

Color printer won't print color


Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
