If there is print movement then the printer is fine check if the ink cartridge is not blocked. Do a cartridge clean

Good luck

Printer not connected to computer

If you are using Windows you will get a chime sound when you plug & unplug a usb cable. I would try using a different USB port on the laptop and see what happens. Did the dog/cat/hamster chew on the cable maybe? I would also try another USB A-B cable.

I have a zebra 110XiIII Plus 300 DPI printer that is randomly printing blank reciepts. It's connected to the computer via a USB cable. There is no rhyme or reason to the blank printing, just does it...

This is usually caused by the sensors being dirty or the printer needing calibrated. Blow off the media and ribbon sensors and also do a manual calibration. If it is still skipping after this then it is software related.

Will not print anything?

Check the cartridges first

Try doing this
disconnect printer from computer
cancel documents in queue
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of printer. else remove duplicate printer icons.

I have been unable to print to my lexmark z11 color jetprinter. pages come out blank. I received an error messarge saying : there was an error writing to LPT1 A printer timeoout error occurred. To...

This sounds like more of a communications problem than it does a "time out" problem. I am assuming that the printer is connected to the computer via a parallel cable. If that is the case, try unplugging the cable at both ends, the reattaching it. If that does not change anything, try replacing the cable.

If that does not solve the problem, try replacing the parallel cable with a USB cable and then follow the directions below.

If by some outside chance you have the printer connected to the computer via USB cable you can do one of two things. Replace the USB cable with a parallel cable or change the printer's port settings to use the USB cable. - If you do have the printer connected via USB cable you might be able to rerun the installation software that came with the printer and it may automatically pick up on the USB set up. If not, go to Contro Panel\Printers and Faxes\ - Right click on your printer and open properties. Under properties, click on the Ports tab. Since the error message stated "error writing to LPT1, check to insure that the LPT1 block is checked. If it is, and you are using a USB cable, scroll down until you see two blocks - "USB001 Virtual printer port for USB" and "DOT4_001". Check the box beside "DOT4_001" then click on Apply and close the window. The try printing again.

Hope that helps - Graye

Hello  btfsplk,


Me is Vikram Kumar Thumu from India-Hyderabad. I have seen your message and issue on this issue. I would like to provide my suggestions on this issue.


Generally, this issue could happen if the Port selected that is Printer Properties  is not same as the Port connected to the Computer or Notebook, if this is the case the Printer starts Printing Blank pages from Computer . The issue could also happen if the Printer software is corrupted.


To resolve the issue I recommend you to check and try out below options:


1. try to restart the Print Spooler.

2. Make sure that you selected the correct port in the Ports tab of the Printer Properties.


Example: If your Printer uses USB cable to connect the Computer, then make sure that it is USB001 or USB002 is selected in the Ports tab of Printer properties.


Note:  Make sure that Printer is connected to the USB ports of Computer at Rear End and not in front end. Since, front end USB ports in Desktop Computer are meant for USB flash Drive or other USB devices and not for connecting Printers.



Well, I need much more information of your computer so that I can help you further steps of troubleshooting.


So please let me know below information:


1. Version of Operating System that you are using on your Computer.


2. Please let me know the Printer Model number and Serial number along with Manufacturer.


3. Did you receive any other error messages on this issue?


4. Please let me know cable type ( USB/Parallel) that you are using to connect Printer to the Computer.


Please mail the information at, I'll be glad to help you with further information on this issue.



Bye .
