Ok, this usually happens if A: The printer driver hasn't been installed properly, Or, B: the actual printer, hasn't been chosen and set as "Default". The first time you print, you must actually "Select" that printer from the "Print" menu...

Hello goldhor, I would need more information to help you. When you send something to print do you see it under the printer's window? (Start - Control Panel - Printer and Faxes - double click your printer). You should see the document and the status.
Is that your default printer?

    goldhor, you did not answer any of my questions. I didn´t say anything about the cable. If you can print the test page that means that there´s comunication between the computer and the printer. I asked If you send a document to print do you see it as a job on the printer status window?

Feel like an idiot...does the paper load with the print facing downward or upward?


You didn't say what brand and model printer you have so I can't look up a manual and check it for you. But if you don't want to waste a sheet of good stationery or a valuable form (like checks), make a test sheet. Take a plain sheet of paper and mark it along the top edge. Or use a photocopy of the form as a test sheet. Put the test sheet into the printer and print something on it. From the result you'll know how to feed the sheets in the future.

I have re-installed my printer. It prints, but doesn't print anything what's going on?


I think you mean it sheet-feeds but does not print. If so, power off. If network connected, power off the print server. Power all back on after a minute. Depress power button on printer for 10 seconds.

If auto test page prints, problem is with printer configuration on your computer. Check the configuration carefully. Did you uninstall with the HP Scrubber utility before you did the re-install?

In If the test sheet feeds but does not print, use the HP printer utility, check ink levels, check cartridge "expiration", and clean heads several times. Test again.

Load paper


Hi,

To resolve this issue pick one blank sheet and insert it in the tray and try to print self test page. If the printer prints self test page then load the paper properly and try to print. If self test page won't print then check the paper settings.

HP will not print.It printed the test sheet.


If it printed a test sheet, then the problem is in your program..
go to your printer and faxes folder, (same place as youfound the print test page)
set the HP printer to Default
Try to print from Word or Notepad, when the printer select window pops up make sure the HP is showing, and selected.
If you have more than one printer installed on your Computer, but only one printer, delete all the printers you are not using..

Will not print test page or documents


  • Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
  • While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
  • Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
  • Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
  • Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
  • To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
  • To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

MY test page always prints


Hi,

I belive that after replacing the INk cartridges, you are experiancing this problem. The Alignment test sheet always prints everytime you turn on the printer, if u haven't completed the Alignment process.

To complete the Alignment process,
>>Once the printer finished printing the Alignmnet test sheet.
>> Place the Test sheet staright on the scanner glass facing down towards right hand corner.
>>Press the scan button(color), the Power ON light will start flashing, wait until it stops flashing.
>>Alignmnet process completed.


Thank You

Cannot restore the settings of printer like the tear of on the keybord... what did do to restore the settings of this printer... i cannot print  the print out is a symbol . same on the printest on the...


Hi,

To do a Default Setting Mode to an Epson LX300+, you need to:
1. Power OFF the printer (for at least 10 seconds or more);
2. Press Tear Off button while simultaneously powering ON;
3. Release button, maintain power ON, printer will print basic/default settings.

At most times, it is the parallel/printer cable that gets dislodged. loosely connected or perhaps would even require replacement.

Should you want to do a printer self-test on an Epson LX300+:
Printer's Self-Test - The built-in self test function demonstrates that the printer is working properly. You can run the test with either continuous paper or single sheets; this describes the easier way, with single sheets.

* Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.
* While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.
* Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.
* Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically.
* Press the PAUSE button. The printer begins printing the self test.
* To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button.
* To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned out or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Good luck and kind regards.
