I'm getting the message 'cannot continue to print as disk is full' How do I clear the internal memory?


Hi Lucy,

Try this:

Your print job is killing the printer's memory. a couple things to try:
1. disable spooling and print directly to the printer.
this almost never works, but from the control panel, open printers (and faxes) and right click on your printer and select "properties". the radio button to check is under the advanced tab.
2. print to an image first, print to another software printer, like the microsoft document imaging printer. then reprint from the .mdi file that is generated by it.
3. export your file to a non-publisher document.
file save as file type to something other than a .pub file. a .doc might work, then again it might muck up your layout.
a .jpg/bmp would work very nicely for printing.
4. increase the memory to your printer.
this option may not be possible for you.

Hi I have a Lexmark X75 which won't print....status button is flashing, don't have drivers disk to reinstall and can't seem to find online....any suggestions? Thanks.


Hello Lchalfa,

  • Okay, so I go to the Lexmark web site. This is the page where you download the files you need. (Either because you've lost the original CD, or because you want a more up-to-date version.)
  • Choose inkjet printers
  • Choose Z705
  • Choose the operating system you have (such as Windows XP)
  • Click on the file and choose Download and Run
  • The program will unpack into a folder on your hard disk, then run to install the printer.
Thanks.

After clearinf the Defence Virus my printer prints


Hi There,

In my experience with HP's (maybe more than I'd like :)), I've found that when you decide to remove and re-install an HP, the temp files from the first installation, no matter how long ago, stay within Windows and interefere with a frsh install. You can install a different HP or another brand and you won't be affected because those leave their own set of temp files.

So, even though a key file could have been removed in taking out the virus and the temp file removal solution may not help you, here's how to do it and it can't hurt to try.

Uninstall the 5550 from the Control Panel. Hold down the Windows Logo key on the keyboard and press the R key. A Run Command window will appear. Type in %TEMP% and hit the enter key. Your Temp File Folder will appear. Delete every file that Windows will allow (a few may remain because they are in use for normal Windows functions). Reboot your computer. Go to the Start Button>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools and run Disk Cleanup. Reboot your computer.

Now reinstal the 5550. If it doesn't run correctly after this, you'll know that the virus did damage within the small memory section of the printer and that's a problem I've personally never faced. Even if this is the case, at least you now know the proper and thorough way to re-install an HP Printer.

Good Luck

Hi our dell 1720 printer has been printing hundereds of pages of nothing but gibberish since saturday. At first I thought it was trying to print a file someone deleted before cancelling from the que but...


I've found when this happens to our printers after we reload the driver the printer prints fine. You may not even need the disk. You can go to the Advanced tab in the printer properties and the driver should still be loaded on the PC's hard drive.

It takes 2-3 minutes to spool before it prints. Runs on a network, 6 users and a file server. Printer connected via USB to file server


Okay, it's been some time since the thread started,
but finally I think I found a solution...

yea after all it was a problem with the windows firewall.
I've seen people saying add specific files to the firewall exceptions list,
but didn't work.. so I just tried adding EVERY single executable file in the folder
C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3 to the list,

and voila it worked!

however printing sharing through network still seems slow. :P

CD-R tray problems


I had the same problem, canon said nothing wrong with printer, solution I found was to slightly lift the rear of the tray as it fed in, as it appeared to hit something on way in when fed by itself
