    I have Broderbund Print Shop version 11. How can I open docs on windows 8? Leanne

    Sorry I don't think there is a solution. Windows 8 doesn't run version 22 either. I did load version 23 on it for a while but it was limited in size of document. I had to remove it. Am looking for another product now. I guess we have to have an old computer for an old program.

    The printer says Load MP feeder B5. how can I fix this.

    Several options here:

    1st - cancel any documents in the print queue. and print off a report of some kind via the menu button on the machine. if that prints correctly then it either a software/ print driver setting issue.

    2nd - If that prints out correctly open up a text pad/ notepad and attempt to print that if the message pops up it's very possible the paper handling has been miss-configured within the print driver.
    Now if the document does print out fine, the original document you were attempting to print is set to a B5 paper size. If that's the case pending on what program you are using you will have to change the paper size to you choice of paper your using.

    3rd - open up the paper tray and confirm it's set to letter or legal pending what type of paper you have in the tray(not the manual feed tray). I highly doubt it's the tray however as B5 setting would not allow any type of normal paper to be loaded.

    4th - on the machine hit the menu button -> paper menu -> confirm that the paper type/ size and source are configured correctly.

    I cannot print color grahics or pdf documents. Operating system is windows 7, and I'm using the postcript driver for the printer.

    Do you have Adobe Acrobat installed? You need the program in order to open and/or print PDF documents. If you don't have it the program is available for free on the internet. If you do have it, make sure that your version is the most current.

    Then try this!

    Change or update the driver to the regular printer driver. Don't use the postscript driver choice in your control panel. If you already have the regular printer driver installed and are using the postscript driver as the "default" then follow the instructions below to correct the problem.

    Go to your control panel. Open printers. You will see all of the printers and drivers installed. Right click with your mouse on your regular printer. You will see a drop down list of choices to pick from. Choose "set default". Then close and save your choice.

    Then open Adobe Acrobat and find a pdf document and try printing. This will solve the pdf document printing issue.

    Changing your default printer to the correct driver should also solve the problem with inability to print color graphics too. If it does not solve the problem, please re-post and elaborate about what your experiencing when you attempt to print a color graphic and I will try and help you.

    I want to print a new document but the old document always coming out

    This is because - you had tried to print the old documents and that printing sessions were not completed and the documents are in printer buffer. You may switch off the printer - go start - settings - printers and faxes - double click the printer name - you will find some printing requests are there - delete those. Now switch on the printer. Try to print the new document, it will print perfectly. If same thing happen again you do the same steps. But if this problem repeats - you should re-install the operating system.

    Can't print Word Perfect documents on my Lexmark 1300

    Make sure you have all the recent microsoft updates.

    If it still won't print you can use OpenOffice (Free to use and download) to open your documents with and maybe they will print from there. Using Open Office may change some formatting, but you can usually fix that pretty easily.

    Download Open Office
