Re: printer doesnt print

Make sure the printer is a network printer. Then make sure the network cable is plugged into the printer and the switch box for all the network computers. If your printer is attached to a computer on the network, then that computer works like the server. The computer has to be on for anyone to access it. Make sure you can see the other computer on you network. Then you have to set the printer up on each of the computers. Make sure you you have your installation software.

If this helps you, please rate me. Thanks, Patty

Why is it randomly starting and printing rubbish?

go to control panel on the computer , printer devices , see what is printing and highlight print tasks and delete or cancel all print tasks
check that the printer drives has not been corrupted by going to printer properties and checking for driver updates
If you have up graded the pc with a win 10 upgrade, it could be a compatible problem as to get the best out of win 10 it needs to be installed of a disk as a stand alone os and not an upgrade of an existing os

HP Officejet 5610 All-In-One. cartridge error: refer to device documentation to troubleshoot ... I was in the process of of printing a series of documents. does not print prpoperly

Will it color copy- stand alone? Try making a copy on the printer by itself. If the copy is still printing in blue, then go to the service section in the menus, and clean the print head, if that does not work then try the recalibrate function. -If the copy comes out fine when you try it stand alone, try deleting the printer and reinstalling the printer.

The printer show offline

Is this network printer or stand alone printer?
For both, check the power of printer.
For network printer, check print server is working, network cable from printer to print server is fine, check your computer connect to network.
For stand alone printer, check cable connect between your computer and printer.

If they are all good, restart your computer to let windows pick up your printer when it start up.
Hope this will help. Thanks for reading

My Canon iP90 has been working perfectly but now won't work at all. Nothing. Not a bleep. The green light's on and I've done all the utility checks and they're fine. I've tried turning...

If you had done utility check and they are fine, had you try printing on a stand alone not using a computer. if you can print on a stand alone, there is no problem on the hardware side of the printer because u were able to print on a stand alone. you can focus now on the software side by uninstalling and re installing the driver of the printer and that should work.

Sounds like you have checked the PC-Fax as the default printer instead of the actual printer. Check by going into Start -> Control Panel -> Printer & Faxes. If the MFC-printer isn't set as default printer, right click it and choose "set as default". You could also try printing a test page by right clicking, choose Properties and then you'll have the test print option on a button in the bottom left part of the properties screen.
