Question about Kodak EASYSHARE 5500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Won't print a whole page

First off I calibrated the printer once and thought I might need to do it again since it wasn't printing right. Now I can print the calibration page (a bit slanted) but the scanner won't recognize it.

Whenever I print something it will only print on about 3/4 of the page lengthwise, leaving a huge margin on the right and an incomplete document.

Brother HL-2270DW printer shows offline and won't print


I had this problem today with my wireless Brother MFC-990CW using Windows 7, and when I went to see what s printing, then printer, it wasn t showing that I had checked the use printer off-line
So, on my pc I went to the start button then chose:
- Computer
- Network
- Double click your printer
- New print drivers will start to install
- Right click the icon that is a copy made of your printer setup
- Set this as your default printer
I was then able to print and my printer didn t show as being off-line anymore. This is a lot easier than having to uninstall and install the printer again using the disc.

Print cartridge alignment failed.


Check the following steps :

Double-click the HP printer icon in the system tray at the lower right end of your desktop. Navigate to the "Toolbox" tab.

Click on the "Status" link on the left side of the window. Scroll through the "Status" menu and click on the "Print Info Pages" link.

Click the blue "Print" button located to the right of the "Configuration Page" heading. Check the print page to see if the "L" shaped bars are overlapping or bleed into each other.

Contact HP directly for a repair or replacement if the "L" bars do not have any overlap, as that will indicate an extensive mechanical problem that can't be fixed through troubleshooting.

Return to the "Toolbax" tab if the color bars are overlapping. Click on the model number of your HP color laser printer at the upper left end of the window. Click on the "Device Settings" link.

Choose the "Print Quality" option and then click on the "Calibrate" button on the right side of the window. Click "OK" in the new window that appears and wait for the alignment calibration process to finish.

Attempt to print a document again and see if the alignment is still off. If the alignment is not correct, repeat the calibrating, since the HP color laser printer may need to be calibrated more than once to fix the alignment.

NO CALIBRATION SHEET


Hello, you can print a calibration sheet from the front panel of the printer. Hit menu on the panel of the printer and scroll down to calibration printer and hit ok. Then hit ok on print calibration page and it should proceed to print a calibration page. After it is done printing, it will tell you to scan the calibration sheet.
