Why did my printing rate suddenly slow down to about 20 Why did my printing rate suddenly drop to about 20 % of normal

Check the print quality settings in the Printer Control Panel. If set to best and color it will slow printing considerably and use ink much quicker. Draft and B&W printing is usually fastest and sips ink compared to other modes.

Goes through printing process but no print on the paper

Dear Lynda,

Please perform the steps:

Step1: Print a self-test report

* From the printer control panel.

* Make sure there is plain white, letter-size paper loaded in the input tray.

* On the printer control panel, hold down the Power button, and then press the Cancel button (Red X button) once.

* Release the Power button. This prints a test page.

If the test page prints fine, then the hardware of your all in one works fine. In that case the issue might be a software conflict and you may perform the following steps to isolate the cause of this issue:

* Try printing from a different application.

* If the issue occurs for all the applications, they please reinstall the printer driver and software from the following HP web link:

You may refer to the following HP web page too:

If the issue persists please let me know.

* I know how annoying this issue is. However, there is a solution for every problem in this universe. :)

Have a great day.

Thanks and regards,

Dr. Tony

Sharp mx-350n will not print in color from the network

Which model is it? The MX-350N is black and white, the MX-3501N is a color model. I'll assume it's the MX-3501N.

Either it's defaulted to print B&W in which case you just go to your printing preferences of the print driver in the printers menu in the control panel, and uncheck the "black and white print" box, or you have account/user codes that you need to enter in your print driver in order for it to print color. Instructions for adding a user code to the printer driver are found here.

The buttons on the Scanner itself will no longer work.

You should be able to reconfigure the button settings by clicking on the "Settings" button in the CanoScan Toolbox application. Although the default setting is Scan, Copy and eMail, each of the buttons can be configured to do whatever operation you choose.

Printer Port is used by another device

Just only check and delete error print task queue in all of printers.

Start->settings->printers and faxes.

Right click and open each printer on your machine to find which printer remain error queue and delete it.

Good luck...
