    This is the WORST printer I have ever bought. Will never ever again buy an HP. I have bought 4 in the past 2 years and had problems with all but this one is the worst.

here are the things that i want you to follow to somehow resolve your issue.

1. On your computer, click on start then go to control panel
2. inside control panel open the PRINTERS and FAXES (XP) or PRINTER (VISTA).
3. make sure change the default printer icon to the HP Officejet 5600 series.
- right click HP Officejet 5600 series and choose "set as default printer"
4. then try printing,

note: the reason why you encounter that problem is because the default printer icon is the "HP officejet 5600 series fax".

best regards

My printer HP6960 will print word documents, but when I try to print pdf's the 6960 is not one of the optional printers. What do I need to do to configure adobe on my computer??

Make sure your 6960 is set as default printer.
sometimes when you want to print PDF it will ask if you want to print as word document, try that as well.
can you right click on PDF to select printer?
Last look at Adobe properties notice if in Setup for Adobe allows you to select default printer.

If this does not help,
try selecting "print as" or "print..."(notice the three dots)

How do i cancel a printing on my laserjet 1100a

The document you sent to the wrong printer is still in the print queue. You need to go into the print queue and delete the document there. You may need to click to control panel, click on the laser jet printer and delete the wrong document.

My brand new Canon IP 100 pixma printer wont print cause it's saying "offline." I've turned it off and on numerous times. What can i do?

Hi, please follow this instruction to make your printer back to "online". Notice that i have used Epson Stylus Photo R230 as a model for the instruction, but this procedure also works with canon.
1. Please try to print a document. (word, excel etc.), 2. Now, if you already notice that your printer is "offline" by clicking the printers icon at the task bar.

The task bar can be found in the lower right part of your screen.

3. All you have to do is, Click on the "printer" tab 4. And then remove the check mark at "user printer offline" by clicking on it.

5. Once done, you will notice that the "use printer offline" will disappear and then let's you print the specified document again.
I hope this helps.

I started to print a document and noticed it was 18 pages and canceled the printing. Now the printer won't print and the button next to the on/off button just flashes when I try to print something. What do...

I'm not sure why your printer stopped in the first place, but one reason why it won't print is because the print queue is blocked with old document requests.

Try going into your printer properties and remove all documents listed in the print queue.

(Start - Printer/faxes) - default printer - RMB - Properties).

HP Photosmart. I have a document open in Word

o.k. I believe I can help you with this.

The mysterious printing document huh? many people run into this problem some point in the printing experiences.

This is what I think may be your problem.

You have backed up print jobs in your print cue. Things that you or someone using your computer told your computer to print but never printed out .. maybe your printer was out of paper? maybe you turned off your computer or it lost power before a print job was complete?


Look to the right bottom corner of your computer monitor. This is your system try. look of the printer icon. Click on it. now
this should pull open a printer task menu.

right click anywhere in the box and cancel all print jobs.

Now resume trying to print your document. It should print out for you.

If you still have problems turn off your printer and computer.

turn back on your printer and then power back on your computer and try printing again. This last step is just a way of refreshing everything in case changes did not take place.

good luck if this was of assistance pleas take the time to leave a kind testimonial. :)

Printer keeps printing same document so i can not delete it

You have to erase it from it's memory. If you have already tried to cancel it via your pc and it didn't work, try this: turn off the printer. Entirely, from the wall socket. Turn off your computer. Then turn them on again. Both the computer and your printer should erase the document from their memory, so it will stop the printing.

Only headlines of document prints and no black text

First try to nozzle check your printer. For most cases this works best.
