SOURCE: printer wont print after ink cartridge change

Hi pater_g:
Have you tried to reinstall the old cartidge to see if it would give a different problem ( light print ect.) if not try that. If the problem stays and you just can't communicate with the printer try rebooting you computer or go to www.hp.com/support to download a new print driver. I hope this helps you.

Welcome to FixYa.

Your computer's WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) might be missing or probably the scan driver itself. Try to scan first using PAINT and see if it will allow you to scan. While doing this procedure, note down any messages that will show up and include it in your reply to me. The video below will show you how to scan in PAINT.


I will be waiting for your reply. Thank you for using FixYa.

PRINTER WILL PRINT COPY OF SOMETHING BUT WANT PRINT SOMETHING OFF COMPUTER.


This problem sounds like the printer is not set up properly on the computer. Have you installed the software that came with it? If so, look for the printer under control panel and then try a test page. If the test page doesnt work, how is the printer connected to the computer, by USB cable? If it is connected by usb, try shutting the computer down, unplugging the usb cable, restarting the computer and once it is fully started, plug the usb cable for the printer back in. Do you hear a tone after the printer is plugged in? If so try to print again.

My hp laserjet 1100 doesnt respond when i try to print


Not sure if this will help but if you right click on the printer and go to properties ( when your in printers and faxes ) and go to the ports tab I think it is and un tick the check box that says bi directional support and try it again.

Also what error are you getting thats printed off ?

what lights are on the printer and where are you getting the driver from, if the disc then try the latest driver from the hp website

When trying to print from internet printer starts and stops


Try to reset your system one of two ways. With the printer plugged into your computer unplug from the wall for 30 seconds then plug back in. If that doesnt work then try a hard reset by pressing and holding the Cancel and Left arrow button. Hold down for 30 seconds then plug the system back in and do a test print then tr and print off the internet. If that doesnt work then unistall the Printer software and reinstall the software.

Paper and ink lights blinking - no power light flashing at all - can't do anything on our Epson R1800 printer... can you suggest something to try? have been doing a lot of head cleaning due to bad nozzle...


Try doing a printer check by doing the steps below. If it doesnt work, then try to call the printer manufacturer for more advanced solutions or information

  1. turn off the printer and disconnect it from computer
  2. place a plain sheet of paper
  3. press and hold down the paper feed button, then press and release the power button. Continue holding down the paper button until you see the power light flashes
  4. if it prints a test page it is working fine, the problem might be the computer settings, printer settings, software or printer application, or cables, otherwise the problem is the printer itself

Not printing


This is the information I received from another person when i ask for help. I did exactly as it said and my printer works fine now. Try it and see if it works for you. Good Luck!

First download and run "CleanupUtility.exe" from: ftp://ftp.lexmark.com/driver/inkjet_drivers/Cleanup/

Then unplug the printer's USB cable and restart your PC.

Then download and run the printer's drivers/install program for Vista, from: http://downloads.lexmark.com:/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:548:0:0&emeaframe=&fileID=10374&searchLang=en&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista

Only plug the USB cable back in when the drivers/install program tells you to.

After install, I think it asks for another reboot.
Then all should work fine.

Hp laserjet 4250dtn PROBLEM


try replacing the toner cartridge, if that doesnt work, let me know

Printing


Is the printer connected via USB or a printer cable to the LPT1 port? Make sure the Port setting in the properties of the printer are set to the correct port. If the printer is plugged into the USB port but the properties say it is on the LPT1 port. the cpmputer will think it is sending something to the printer but the printer doesnt know it.
