Printer will copy but not print

I can't print anything. Whether it's in word or from the internet but it'll copy with no problem. I get an error message...Can't communicate. I've checked all the connections. What else should I do?

Remove the printer,,and then re add it under control panel. You may need to re install the print management software again. And isolate that printer with it's own power strip, and plug directly into the wall outlet. Power plays heck with printers. Got backup?

I replaced the cartridge of my hp psc 1401, copied the test page that was automatically printed, but now I can't print anything. Copying works OK. I don't get an error message or blinking lights on...


what is the status of print job in the queue? whether it is showing printing or no status in the windows.
if the status is printing you delete all the print jobs and switch off and on .then try print something. if no status is there in the windows then you check whether the printer is off line .try make it online by right click on the printer icon then click on the use printer online.

My hp deskjet printer can not copy or scan


Error message?
Just put something on the scanner glass and press the print button in the printer itself, leave the computer alone.
Did it work? if so... there's something wrong with the HP software, re-install.
That machine takes copies without the computer on, so, it should work.

Printer prints more copies than indicated. Driver reinstalled multiple times. Problem is not that is follows previous print number.


The printer has performed correctly for two days now - first consecutive days since purchase 6 months ago. I did not do or change anything - have no idea why it is printing the correct number of copies now. I am not confident that this will be longlasting, however.

Printer error 502


Shut down the printer, check whether the printer has peripheral devices such as a stabilizing power supply, and disconnect them.After five minutes, restart the printer to see whether the fault corrects itself. If the fault persists, the heating component may be faulty and the printer will need to be repaired.

Thanks for using FixYa.
