You'll need to post more information. Is the printer off line? Is there an error message?

My printer does not print from the computer nor does it print copies.


Try this utility: Print Flush 1.3

Fix your printer with this small utility!

Has your printer quit working? Did you try to cancel a job and it broke the printer completely? I always do that. And the method to fix it usually involves rebooting, restarting the print spooler, trashing junk print files, and sometimes even more. Not anymore.


Print Flush has a simple function: clean the print spool. If your printer's driver is incorrectly installed, Print Flush cannot help you. If you have used your printer before and it worked fine then, but it doesn't now, Print Flush can probably help you.

It also works with Vista.

  1. Save somewhere where you can find it.
  2. If you downloaded the zipped version... Unzip the file to the desktop or something
  3. Double-click the file
  4. Try printing again!

How to i clear the queue with jobs waiting to print when the printer says printing but is not printing


Try pressing cancel on the printer first. Then, open the print queue by opening the printers folder, and double-clicking the printer icon for your printer. Try to select the jobs there and cancel them. If that doesn't work, turn off the printer, and wait for the title bar of the print queue to say "use printer offline". If it doesn't change on the title bar of the queue, then select "use printer offline" from the file menu of the print queue. Then try to delete the print job. If this still doesn't work, leave the printer off and reboot the computer, then try to delete the print job again if it is still in the queue. If none of these work, remove and then reinstall the printer as a last resort.

My printer isn't printing but it will scan and copy. It has items in the cue to print but they aren't working they are sitting idle.


First reset the computer and printer.
  • Unplug printer from wall
  • Restart computer
  • Plug printer back in to wall
Try to print now. This commonly occurs when files are stuck/corrupt in the print cue.
Remember
  • Only hit the print button once.
  • If it doesn't print immediately wait.
  • Wait some more
  • Open your printer que (xp Start button>Control panel>printer and faxes> double click on the specific printer.)
Now if this continues, use the above to see if the file is stuck in the cue. Try using a print test page from the printer control panel before anything else.

If the Test page works and your other print doesn't, then it is your application. Print from something else.

If even the test page won't work, then it is your drivers or your supplies are low.

Many of these printers won't work if you are out of ink. There may be a light on the printer flashing and you are out of ink.

PSC 2175 wont work with print server


Please make sure that the printer is working okay if directlysd connected to the MAC computer. You may try this as well. hope this helps

Description
LPR (line printer remote) is a platform independent printing protocol that is associate with TCP/IP. It works by using LPR client software that communicates to a server running LPR services.

In terms of PSU, LPR printing will become the basis for all network printing while Novell print queues are phased out. Therefore, all Macintosh, Windows, and Unix computers will be configured to print through LPR.

Requirements

· The name of LPR print queue. This can be found by searching the LPR printer database.

· LaserWriter print drivers version 8.5.1 or newer

· The Macintosh must have a working TCP/IP networking configuration. (If the Mac can browse the web then it's working.)

· a server running LPR services or a printer that supports LPR printing. Most HP LaserJet printers support LPR. However, only the following LaserWriters support LPR printing:

- LaserWriter 8500
- LaserWriter 16/600 PS
- LaserWriter 12/640 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/600 PS
- Color LaserWriter 12/660 PS Procedure

1.Open up the Applications folder from the OS X menu.
2.Open up the Utilities folder
3.Now open up the Print Center
4.If you have no printers installed you will see the following screen. Click on Add.
5.On the following screen, select LPR printing.
6.Now enter printhost.oit.pdx.edu for the LPR Printer's address.
7.Uncheck Use Default Queue on Server option and enter the queue name of the printer.
8.Select the printer model.
9.The completed settings should be similar to the following:
(LPR Printer’s address is the ip of our PRINTSERVER)
10.Click on Add
11.Your printer has successfully been installed. Test the printer by printing something to it.

I just installed my new printer HP F4280, when gives print command in MS office it give error message MS office has stopped working


Hi Ahsan & Guest,
Thanks for sharing the problem with me.
Please first check printer installation:-
Start --> Printers and Faxes --> Right Click the printer --> Properties --> Print test page.

Problem might be Lose cartridge, Lose cable connections, Paper Jam, previous aoverloaded print que. Please Rectify all this.

There may be a hardware problem with printer itself please take help of printer technician in that case.

If this works, then start MS word, type something on page.
Click on print and select the right printer and print. It will work GoodLuck
Dear Guest, this problem might be in printing the web pages, please select all what you want to print or select nothing before printing.

Please see print preview to make sure that what you are going to print is rightly selected.

Thanks

Lexmark C1150 printer doesn't print


First I try to uninstall the printer, it didn't work, so I reinstall the the printer anyway, it worked for one print only.
As second attempt I disconnected the printer completely, turned the PC off, and after few minutes on again. Uninstalled printer.
Reconnected the cables again, install the printer - it works well!

Not working dtc550


Since the printer prints the test page from the driver, most likely the problem is with your Cardfive software. To test this, try printing a card on the printer from Microsoft Word or Notepad. Just remember to set your page size or you will get multiple cards printed. The Fargo printer is just a windows printer and may receive output from any windows software.
