SOURCE: Compability problem between LBP 2900 with Windows Vista

you will need to download the vista driver for this printer. follow the link below. enter your operating system and language information in the drop down box. under the information box that pops up you will see 1. Printer Driver (R1.11). when you move your cursor over it, it will turn red. click on that link. next you will see Software LBP2900_R111_EN.EXE. click on that line, download the driver, save to your desktop. when download is complete, close the browser and double click on the file to install the new driver.

Please take a moment to rate this solution.

SOURCE: Print back to back with Canon LBP 2900

If the printer does not support double sided printing, you need to take the printed page and put it back into the paper tray upside down to print on the other side of the page.
If you have a document several pages long then you need to print a page at a time. The odd page on one side and the even page on the other side.

WHEN TRAY EMPTY PRINTS OUT OF OTHER TRAY


The user cannot select a paper tray for a print job from within an application. It is also not possible to configure a default paper tray in the Document Defaults, Printing Preferences, Printing Defaults driver options.
This problem may be experienced with an HP PCL5e, PCL5c, or PCL6 LaserJet printer driver on any of the following Operating Systems:
  • Windows NT 4.0
  • Windows 2000
  • Windows XP/.NET

Typical symptoms of this issues include:
  • Paper tray selection grayed out.
  • Cannot select paper tray, only size and type.
  • Not possible to select tray.

SOLUTION: Perform the following steps to clear the NT Forms configuration.
  1. Go to the Printers folder by clicking Start , Settings , and Printers .
  2. Right-click the printer and go to Properties .
  3. Go to the NT Forms tab.
  4. Click the Clear All button.
  5. To save and exit, click the OK button.

SUMMARY: This is expected printer driver behavior. The NT Forms feature allows a user or system administrator to configure a so-called "form-to-tray assignment" for the printer. When this feature is enabled it is not possible to select a specific paper tray for a print job, or to set it as default, because the system is aware of the specific paper size and type loaded in the various printer trays, which makes the source selection redundant. Some applications or environments may require a "form-to-tray assignment" in order to take advantage of certain features. For instance, in an Active Directory environment, this feature has to be enabled for the operating system to be able to report the available paper sizes in the printer to the Active Directory

WAS HAVING TROUBLE WITH HL 2040 PRINTER , LEARNT HOW TO RESET , FIXED THE PROBLEM. TRIED TO PRINT A WORD DOCUMENT , WOULD NOT PRINT - BUT WOULD PRINT EXCEL DOCUMENTS. WHILST TRYING TO GET STARTED AGAIN...


Hi Ron, I dont think you have a printer problem, i think you have a print driver/computer problem.

To find out unplug it (the usb) from you computer, turn it off so no data remains from previous print commands sent from your pc and run a self test by holding your green go button when you turn it on, keep it held untill toner, drum and paper lights light up, then let it go, then press the go button and the printer will print a self test....

If this works ok then we know your printer is ok. and your issue is as i suspect it is, with your print driver, paper size or tray select settings in Driver or in Word or in Excel or your document.

You can isolate if document problem by doing self test in print driver in control panel..

If self test on printer unpluged works and we have no error lights and are seeing the test ok and no flashing lights then you may want to ensure driver is good by completly unistaling the driver on your pc, do this by unistalling all brother stuff from control panel/programs and features (depends on operation system you are using).

Then with it still not connected, go to brothers web and download the full software and drivers package to suit your operating system, run it and only plug in the usb when instructed.

Let me know if your printer shows an error when not connected or if self test fails and Ill go down that road with you... if paper light on it when not connected, it tells us we have a jam, make sure you check back door and under toner drum and paper is sitting neat in tray

But when you tell me excel works and word doesnt, i dont think printer, it is software.Check your page size settings in word and excel and of your documents as the flashing paper light may be the printer trying to tell you the data sent to it from word is a paper size mis match to what the printer has in its tray and it wants you to feed the correct size paper in the manual feed/bypass slot. You should also check paper size and tray selection in your print driver in printers and faxs under control panel is the same as your document. Here is your manual

and here is where you can download your print driver (unistall old software and unpug usb first)

The more i ponder this, it is page size settings in document/excell/word and printer is asking you to feed paper in manual pass slot (above tray)

CHEERS RON

HP LaserJet 4200 - need help resetting default tray selections


Are you using Window 7 64 bit or 32 bit? Re-install drivers appropriate for that version of your operating system. Also look at the "Paper Handling" section in the printer menu. Be sure both trays are set for "Plain" paper.

Print jobs keep going to manual tray even though i'm sending plain paper 8.5x11 jobs at it windows xpp, newest drivers downloaded yesterday from hp no problems printing to other printers


You need to check the software you are printing from.

if you are using microsoft word for example. the page setup in microsoft word will take piority over the windows settings.

So if microsoft word page setup is set to use manual and your windows driver says to use tray 1. it will always use manual.

The other possible cause for this is in the printer's menu system defaults. but the laserjet 1012 does not have a menu system I believe.

HPC6180 DOES TWO ADDITIONAL THINGS: TOO MUCH PAPER PULL & TURTLE


Most of the issues I've had like this are resolved by installing or reinstalling the latest software drivers which are available here. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=1153494&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us&submit=Go%20
pick your operating system, download the appropriete driver to your desktop , install it, restart.. do a test page both in windows printer properties and in one of your document editting programs like word.
Post again here if that doesn't remedy things.

Paper tray is full and the paper light keeps flashing.


First check the machine for paper jams. If not, remove the paper from the paper tray and reinstall it. Then try to print from the MP tray.If this works, check paper size settings on the printer driver, or the small black arm which hangs down next to the paper pick up roller, and is the paper sensor.

6122 Printer says it is out of paper and will not print test page


Hi Ken,
The user manual says this:

1. Verify the following:
There is sufficient paper in the paper tray (at least ten sheets).
The paper tray is not overly full.
The paper stack is touching the back of the paper tray.
2. Slide the paper guides so they fit firmly against the edges of the paper.
3. Press the Resume button to continue printing.

Sometimes my printer won't print if it has too little or too much paper in the slot. It's a relatively common sensor problem.
Try that.

If all else fails, here's a link to the user manual in pdf form:

Too Much Paper


2 possible solutions.
1 The paper itself. Check that the paper tray is not overfull. this can cause multiple sheets to feed through. Also make sure that you use good quality paper suitable for the particular type of printer. Always keep the paper dry Damp (not wet) paper will also cause the sort of problem you describe. another good reason for not keeping to much paper in the paper tray. Paper will keep better in the packet than in the tray. Always store the paper in the packet in a warm dry place. I keep mine near a radiator and away from the Air con.

2. The printer driver. Download the latest driver for your printer from the manufacturer and update the printer driver, via the control panel/printers. If you don't know how to do this you can simply uninstall the printer and then install it again using the new printer driver.

Good Luck
