    What program are you trying to print from? Would it happen to be Quickbooks or Quicken? Or is it any program? Can you print from a plain text document?

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.
Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage. Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head. Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now If that does not work then follow the next step.
Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

Printer not activated, error code - 20


You may face the "Error code-20′ with your printer installed in your Windows 7. The cause of the display of "Error code-20′ may be due to the following reasons. The desired printer may not be the default printer for your prints, issues with the USB composite device, and file missing or file corruption with the printer software supplied by your original equipment manufacturer.

Scanner error 20 in hp laser jet m1319f


HP Printer Error Code 20 is a very common error on HP printers, which will show when your printer does not have the correct settings / configuration to enable it to be used properly. The error will generally show when you try and print a document on your HP printer, and will claim that the "Printer Is Not Activated". Although there are multiple causes of this specific error, the good news is that it is very easy to fix if you know what to do.
The error you're seeing will typically show like this:
•"Printer not activated - Error code 20′
The reason for HP Printer Error 20 to show is mainly down to the way in which Windows is continually trying to use the printer, and does not have the right settings / options for it. Printing a document with an HP Printer Error 20 is actually quite a feat, and your PC needs to have your printer set up in just the right way in order to achieve that.

Fortunately, there's a very simple and effective way to repair the Printer Error 20 in the most effective way possible - by using the steps outlined in this article.

The way to fix Printer Error 20 is to first ensure that your HP Printer is set up to be the default printer on your PC. It's often the case that the printer you have on your system will either not be the default, or will have some sort of error that will prevent it from being properly used. To make sure this problem is not an issue, you should click onto "Printers & Faxes" on your system and then right click onto your HP Printer, and select "Set As Default". This will allow your PC to use the printer every time you print,removing some confusion.

After setting your HP Printer to be the default printing device for your system, you should then look to reinstall the printer on your PC to prevent Error 20.
You can do this by clicking onto "Device Manager" and then removing the printer from your system. On top of that, you should also look to remove any third party HP printer driver software from your PC, and install it again after a restart.

-Finally, you should also use a registry cleaner tool to fix the HP Printer Error 20. Registry cleaners are software tools which can fix any of the damaged settings and errors that your system might have inside. These tools are highly popular, and are used by 1,000's of people every day to help fix a variety of errors on your system. One of the biggest problems facing the HP Printer error 20 is the way in which many people's computers will actually have an incorrect file / setting inside the registry that's leading the error to show. To ensure this problem does not cause your system to become damaged, you should make sure that you can fix any registry errors Windows has.

Or the error may come like this :

Error code 20 Problem: "Not Enough Disk Space" error message
Possible Cause: Your computer needs free disk space to complete a print job. The amount of disk space required depends on the size of the file you're printing.

Solutions:

•A large print job has exceeded the memory capacity of the printer. Verify that the SIMMS or memory cards are seated. Add more memory or simplify the print job. Remember the original HP Laserjet has only 128K of memory available, the LJ+ has only 512K and neither one is really upgradable.
•On the 5P turn the image adapt and page protect to ON or AUTO. These can be set within the Remote Control Panel. Press GO to resume printing.
•On the 5L, set the Enhanced I/O to AUTO (PCL mode) and resend the print job
•Windows XP, click Start and then click Control Panel. Click Printers And Other Hardware and Printers And Faxes. In the Printers And Faxes window, from the File menu, click Server Properties, then click the Drivers tab. This shows the settings in your printer's driver. Compare the settings in this dialog box with the ideal settings in your printer's manual. If you see a discrepancy in these settings, the printer may simply need a new driver and delete old one. You can download printer drivers from the printer manufacturer's Web site.
• Get more help. Installing a new driver won't solve every printer woe, of course, so understanding printer's manual and Windows' built-in Help system will give you an even sharper troubleshooting edge.
