    Not that.  It will print an email, or something off a web site OK and some word docs.  I just opened a word doc attached to an email and printed fine.  so opened other word docs in my file and just says ready print pending. Once it has refused one doc it refuses everything - including what it had just printed a few minutes before.  If I turn it off at wall then on again it sometimes prints what is in queue.  If I cancel queue and start again it will do same thing.  print the email and word doc downloaded from email, but not word doc from my file and refuse to print anything else.  I had given up printing with it and was just using it for a scanner and photocopier.
    Previously it was doing same thing but saying no paper.  Doesn't say no paper now, but if i put a sheet in the manual feed slot - it prints what it had just refused.  That is what it used to do - but it never refuses to photocopy.  I thought it might be software.  I reloaded the installation disc driver.  Very frustrating it was a lovely printer till it became temperamental.

    Thank you Jongcur.  I am sure that has something to do with it.  The average size of word files that I had been regularly printing were around 350KB without any problems.   When I first had the problem my son in law suggested that about memory and I realised the file it would not print was way too big (19MB)  so I dealt with that.  But since then it does it on a very small files like 15KB.  It is almost as if after upsetting it with the 19MB  Word file, it panics at anything coming from Word.  Files it was happy with before it will not print now.

Have you checked the paper cartridges? If you have supplied the paper cartridges with paper but the no paper message sill persists the sensor in the cartridges might not be functioning.

    This might be due to a data overflow, or a lack of memory in your laser printer. Laser printers are page printers, they build an image of the data and store it in memory at one setting. You need to check if your printer has enough memory to handle text and graphics from your file. Reduce the resolution of the file you are printing. If you're usually printing at 600 dpi, reduce your setting to 300 dpi. Or you might add memory to your printer. Hope these suggestions will help your problem.

Unable to print document 1" top,bottom,andleft and right. Font very small. Margin needs to be aligned with computer


and Hi again,

For some unknown reason(s) our Live Session was cut. Any development(s)?

Pls, in MS Word, have you tried clicking on File and then Print Preview? Would you so kind as to check if the way the document is shown is the same way the document was printed?

If yes, was the right margin as you would want it to be? otherwise, have you checked on the settings of the MS Word document specifically the right indent as shown below in red circle?

Would appreciate if you can post back any developments or even the lack of it.

Cheers.

When printing, if I select any other form of paper than "Plain Paper", e.g. "Photo Glossy Paper", the print (of a photo) comes out with a distinct Magenta overhue. The true colours are...


Hello Landscapeman ,

You need to specify the paper type when the print dialog box appears. Heavy glossy paper needs to spend more time in the fuser so that the toner is fixed.

Paper jam


Have you checked your paper that is fed on the bay...maybe there's a foreign material that is present inside because most of the printers nowadays are very sensitive especially on dust that triggers to false positive detection to your computer.

If it does, try clean the bay.ok?

When printing black, the first page comes out in clear black, however subsequent pages are printed in red. In doing a second document the same thing occurs.


Be sure to update your printer drivers with the newest (correct) manufacturer's drivers.

Also, make sure when you print a document you are printing in greyscale. Otherwise, you're wasting your color cartridge. Speaking of which I would try another set of cartridges, and aligning them using the software that came with your printer. Your color cartridge could be malfunctioning.

Fuser Error


I truly believe that you did not take the fuser out. It is not a simple process and is not readily accessible.
You most likely took out the toner cartridge, which works with the fuser.
The fuser is what "fuses" the toner to the paper so the documents print as expected. There are fuser kits that can be purchased, and they usually come with some decent instructions.


in case of new printer
A fuser problem is serious but if it is is a new printer, use the warranty now. Don't play with it as more than likely you can't recover and you *MAY VOID* the warranty in any attempts, so use the warranty. You should have returned it immediately once the problem cropped-up to be within the quicker satisfaction settlement period, you may now have to deal with a warranty center if not the vendor themselves for repair, but start the process. Plus, document this as well, cal,s letters, etc. to best serve yourself if any other problems arise.

To explain what the fuser is, one must explain what the fuser does.

A laser printer works by assembling the page in its memory, then transfers that "image" by scanning a drum. The drum then picks up a charge which will attract the toner. By varying the laser you can induce specific dots, creating an image on the drum. The drum is rotated through the toner, the charge then attracts the oppositely charged toner particles (the uncharged sections don't have anything) The drum, now dark with toner, is touched to the paper, which has an opposite charge, thus transfer all the toner over to the paper. Then the paper is sent THROUGH the fuser, which basically MELTS the toner onto the paper permanently.

If the fuser is too hot, that means the temp control unit for the printer fuser has FAILED, and that is NOT something you can fix by yourself. The labor will likely cost more than the printer unless it's under warranty.

You took out the toner cartridge, which is NOT the fuser. Toner cartridge is just the toner and the drum together in one unit. The fuser is where it warns "high temp! do not touch!"

Just buy another printer or use the backup printer. Again, this is NOT something you can fix by yourself.
