Remove all toner carts and close the front door
Turn on and wait for the printer to ask you to install each color cart.

Turn off and on again so printer can calibrate.

How can I get my printer to print in color rather than brown? more info


Hi Harold
I have a feeling that this is a problem that you will only be able to resolve by changing the colour cartridge for a new one and then doing multiple head cleaning operations.
It sounds as if the three tanks in the colour cartridge have become severely contaminated with ink from the others, thus giving this overall brown colour on the page, whichever colour the computer tells the printer to print.
To check this you may be able to use something like a Word document and using the font properties, change the colour of the font on the screen for a number of different lines (eg one line - bright yellow, another - bright red, a third - bright blue, a fourth - black) print this out and see what colours you get.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

How can I print my document ?


Your printer probably needs the Thai fonts you are using. You don't need to pay anyone to get this fixed. Just make sure your document includes the fonts when it sends the file to the printer.

When we set the font it prints for about 2 pages , then returns to the 17 font. We need the 10 font to be able to read the huge amount of items printed. Any way to get it to stay on the 10 font?


You didn't mention which document type or from which program you are trying to print but the commands for the printer are normally embedded invisibly in the document and sent to the printer to accomplish font changes, punctuation, etc.
We might have a better answer and a suggestion if you comment back to this thread with the name/version of the program that produced the document.

Printing in a huge font with outlined lettering


More than likely this a "Fontcall" error from within the application.

What normally happens is that you design a document in Word and select a font that is resident on the PC but has not been downloaded to the printer.

When the document goes to the driver, the driver sees the call for a font that it does not have in its index table and then does a :Best Fit" algorithm.

The output is usually very unexpected.

As a quick test, do a "<ctrl>+a" to select the entire document. Then change the font to Arial. Now see if the font on the screen matches the font on the printout.

If it does, either make sure you can get a "Soft Font" rendering of the font you want. Soft fonts will download automatically to the printer.

Or you can check with a company such as Font Mongerer to see if they have a printer font that matches the screen font. Once you purchase the font and download it to the printer you should be fine.

My hp officejet j5750 does not copy


hi im josh in cebu phils.try my solutions
.tt1 {font-size: 10pt;} If your printout is not as you expected, there might be several causes. The most likely cause, believe it or not, is our old friend the poorly connected cable. If all the instructions don't make it from the computer to the printer, your printout will be incomplete, if not totally out of whack. Check all cable connections to ensure a good throughput of data. If that doesn't fix the problem, just change the printer cable. An old or damaged cable could be causing your problems.
tip
tip_icon.gif Printing the printer's self-test page is also a good way to determine whether the problem is in the printer or in the computer—or somewhere in-between.


Another cause of print garbage might be the printer itself. If you have a low or old toner cartridge in a laser printer or a near-empty ink cartridge in an inkjet printer, your printout will be lighter than normal, perhaps even unreadable. If necessary, change the cartridge and run the print job again.
If you're using a laser printer, you might get black streaks on your output. This problem is most often caused by an old toner cartridge, or by a dirty roller or printer cleaning bar. If you replace the toner cartridge and clean the suspect parts (using a cotton swab) and you still experience black streaks, your printer might need service.
If you're using an inkjet printer, it's possible that your print jets are clogged. You'll need to unclog the print jet by inserting a small pin into the jet.
It's also possible that a paper misfeed in your printer caused the printout to become smudged or out of line; if this is the case, straighten the paper feed and start the print job again.
An incorrect printer setup in Windows can also cause unusual printouts. Make sure that Windows is configured for the exact type of printer you're using. Also make sure that you have the correct landscape (horizontal) or portrait (vertical) printing option selected.
If none of this works, you probably have a problem somewhere in your printer. Although a bad printer port on your PC could be the culprit, more than likely some internal problem with your printer is causing the poor printout. (You can confirm this by printing a self-test page; if it looks bad, the problem is in your printer.) Consult your friendly repair center.
Problem: Your Printed Page Looks Half-Finished If you're trying to print a document with a lot of graphics (especially on lower-priced laser printers), you might find that your printer doesn't have enough memory to print the entire document. What you'll get is about half the document—and not always a contiguous half! You can do one of several things to rectify the problem:
  • Add more memory to your printer. If you do a lot of heavy graphics printing, you probably need at least 1MB of RAM installed in your printer. You might be able to add the memory yourself, or you might want to have a qualified laser printer technician do the job for you.
  • Instruct Windows to print this document at a lower resolution. Go to the Printer Properties dialog box for your printer and select the Graphics tab (if your printer has this option). Select a lower resolution (which requires less memory and gives you less finely detailed output) and see if you can now print your document.
  • Simplify your document. If you're using a lot of different fonts and graphics, take some out. It's not an ideal solution, but it might be the only way you'll get this particular document printed on time!
Problem: Your Printer Prints, but the Fonts Aren't Correct If you create a document on a PC with one set of fonts installed, and try to print it on another PC with different fonts installed, you could be in for a real surprise! Windows will try to "match" missing fonts, but quite often the match leaves a lot to be desired—resulting in different line lengths and page breaks than what you had originally. Your options are to install the missing fonts on the PC you're printing from, or change the fonts in the document in question. (A word to the wise: stick to common fonts such as Arial and Times New Roman if you think you'll be sharing a document on multiple PCs.)
Problem: Your Color Printer Doesn't Print All Available Colors This problem is most likely caused by an old ink cartridge. It's not unusual for some colors to get depleted before others, throwing off your color output. If you're seeing less blue (or red or yellow or black) than normal, chances are it's time to change your cartridge.
Problem: Paper Jams in Your Printer It's possible that your printer's internal paper feed mechanisms are getting dirty. You can try taking the printer apart yourself to clean out any pieces of scrap paper or other debris, or you might want to take it into the shop to let a pro deal with it.
You might also be getting some paper sticking to other sheets of paper in your paper tray. (This happens more often with cheaper paper—spend a little more and get the good stuff!) Try thumbing through the stack of paper before inserting it into the tray; this should loosen up the paper and make it feed easier into your printer.
Finally, you might need to change the grade of paper you use with your laser or inkjet printer. Lightweight papers tend to jam up the works, so switch to something heavier if you experience a lot of problems.
THE ABSOLUTE MINIMUM
  • Most printer problems are caused by a bad cable connection, a misconfiguration in Windows, or a bad or outdated print driver.
  • All printers need periodic maintenance; make sure you regularly change toner or ink cartridges, clean the paper path and feed, and—if you have an inkjet printer—use the cleaning option to clean the ink jets and cartridge.
  • If you're having trouble printing graphically intense documents on a laser printer, you might need to add memory to the printer or simplify the documents.
  • Lightweight paper can cause unexpected paper jams; use a better grade of paper to keep things running smoothly.
  • good luck friend

Fonts not installed


Fonts are typically available either for free or for a fee.

Only fonts that are visible in your C:\WINDOWS\Fonts Directory will be available to print.

You can google fonts and find more if you are looking.

Also, depending on the program you are using, you can save as a .pdf to print and this will "pack " you fonts into the document. You cna also use the "prepare for commercial printing" option in MS Publisher to store the fonts in the file.

Bottom line, if the font isnt installed, you cant use it.

You may be getting this error if the document came from someone who has the font but you dont. If that's the case, tell your friend you need the fonts. Just copy them out of the E:\WINDOWS\Fonts directory to your disc.

That should do it.

Fonts and sizes are typically controlled by the application you are using. Are you sure you are increasing the font size? I've had some users confused by the zoom feature which is more like a magnifying lens. It just makes thing larger for viewing purposes and does not affect the print size. To change the actual font size of a document already created you would first highlight the text in the document. In Word (other applications are similar) you would then select Format from the main menu bar, then select Font. In the next box that appears you would click on the Font tab, and then in the Size field select a larger font size. After that click on OK and you should see your font size change. Let us know if that was your problem or not.
