I have a MFC 490CW brother Printer I want to print B/W copies only I change the preference to grayscale but still does not print

Hi there,
That's the correct thing that you need to do, setting the printer preferences to GRAYSCALE. If that doesn't work you can also try printing document using a different/another application (example: Microsoft Word, Excel), because sometimes the setting of an application overrides the setting of the printer driver.
The last option for this issue is to uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

The problem isn't your printer. The problem is with your Microsoft Works software. I know of six solutions that may work.

1) Download the latest service pack for .NET Framework 1.1.

2) Go to this website and download the update.

3) Uninstall printer completely (again). Unplug the printer from the computer. Reboot computer. Download the lastest driver from HP website. When installing the driver software, choose (type)a different directory,( ie. C:\MYHP\HP4180\ ). Plug Printer back to computer.

4) Go to this website.

5) Click START, click RUN, type SPOOL. Double click printer folder, clear (delete) any files in this folder.

6) Download the latest version of Microsoft Works 9.0.

Let me know if this works

While trying to print from a microsoft works always says "out of memory" and prints a distorted page.


here are some ways to override the problem

When you try to print
it says
Microsoft Works Out of Memory

This problem may occur if there is a problem with the printer driver that is installed on your computer.

  • Method 1: Install a different printer driver
    Contact the manufacturer of your printer to inquire about how to obtain and install the most recent version of the printer driver for your printer.
  • Method 2: Configure the printer as the default printer
    Configure the printer driver that you have installed as the default printer. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start, and then click Printer and Faxes.
    2. Right-click the printer that you want to set as the default printer, and then click Set as Default Printer.
    3. Click File, and then click Close.
    4. Start Works, and then print the spreadsheet or the database file.
  • Method 3: Install an emulation printer driver
    If the problem persists after you install the most recent version of the printer driver for your printer, install an emulation printer driver. An emulation printer driver is a driver that imitates the functionality of a different printer driver. For example, you may be able to resolve this issue if you install the driver for the Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 550C printer or for the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet II printer. To do this, follow these steps if the printer is connected directly to the computer:

    1. Click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
    2. Double-click Add Printer.
    3. Click Next, and then click Local printer attached to this computer.
    4. In the Use the following port box, select the port that you want to use.

    If the printer is connected directly to the computer, the port is typically LPT1 (Recommended Printer Port).
    5. Under Manufacturer, click the manufacturer of the printer driver that you want to use as the emulation driver. For example, if you are installing Hewlett Packard 550c, click HP DeskJet 550c.
    6. Under Printers, click the model of the printer that you want to use as the emulation driver, and then click Next. Select HP. In Drivers, select HP DeskJet 550c.
    7. In the Printer name box, type a name for the printer, click Yes to set the printer as the default printer, and then click Next.
    8. Click the appropriate option for sharing the printer, and then click Next.
    9. Click No, and then click Next.
    10. Click Finish.

    Note If you are using a USB printer, go to step 12.
    11. Start Works, and then try to print the spreadsheet or the database file.
    12. Open Control Panel.
    13. Open Printers and Faxes.
    14. Right-click HP 550c, and then click Properties.
    15. Click Ports.
    16. Click USB001 Virtual Printer port for USB.
    17. Click Apply, and then click OK.
    18. Start Works, and then try to print the spreadsheet or the database file.
Hope this will solve your problem

When trying to print e-mails from the internet

Looks like your printer driver is crashing.
If it's the driver that's causing problem, try to find an updated driver on the manufacturer's website.
Also, to make sure, I would try a different browser - if you are using IE, try installing Firefox, opening your e-mail and printing. Or Opera, if you prefer.

My hp laserjet 1100 doesnt respond when i try to print

Not sure if this will help but if you right click on the printer and go to properties ( when your in printers and faxes ) and go to the ports tab I think it is and un tick the check box that says bi directional support and try it again.

Also what error are you getting thats printed off ?

what lights are on the printer and where are you getting the driver from, if the disc then try the latest driver from the hp website

Dell all in one 924 printer will not print from internet

If its only a problem while printing from the internet webpages, I think it would be an issue with your browser.Try using a different browser like Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. You can also try resetting your IE settings, delete temporary files and cookies, try reinstalling the printer again. If nothing works, look for program permissions under your Firewall program and ensure that anything related to Printer Communication System is whitelisted.

Good Luck!

"Rainbow" word art (Microsoft)

Have you tried prinitng this in MONO on your 2840 printer.
Does Wordart from Word or other office programs cause this?
If it is the office suite, then look at downloading some service packs from Microsoft.
If it's just your 2840 doing it, then look at downloading a different driver.
For some printers there are different types of PCL drivers, like PCL5 or PCL6, these do behave differently per printer, so swapping the driver might not be a bad idea.
Also check if you are using a PS or Postscript driver, but again, try the PCL alternative for your printer.

I would install the different driver under another name, for testing, then if it works just delete the bad one.

Printer will only print html no pictures from the internet

If you are using Internet Explorer 6, you would need to download and install the Epson Web-To-Page Utility for you to be able to successfuly print from the Internet. Otherwise, you might to give Adobe a call just to properly uninstall the Adobe software (clean uninstallation) just to isolate the issue, if uninstalling and reinstalling the Adobe software and Epson printer driver doesn't help this maybe a case wherein you need to contact Microsoft or Apple since its considered an OS Issue.

Says its ready till i try and print

Dell printer drivers try to 'phone home' with Ink usage stats .. even if you select 'no' when asked, they still try to access the Internet ..on install the driver modifies Microsoft Vista Firewall settings to permit this ...

So if you recently installed a non-Microsoft Firewall eg. ZomeAlarm your print driver will be denied access to the web and will refuse to print.

Note that 'deny' is different from 'time-out' ... to test turn off your wireless (or remove the ethernet cable) and ONLY THEN turn off your firewall - if it now starts printing you have your solution (go into Zone Alarm and Enable all Dell & MS print related software access to the Internet).

DO NOT browse the web with your Firewall turned off !!!!
