Just wont print

I have printed on page successfully. I have not been able to print since. The computer shows very slow progress on the print job and the printer just makes this ticking sound, but nothing ever prints. We have even let it process the job overnight with no success.

    When I try to print something, it sounds like it's printing but the page is blank when it comes out. It says my color and black ink is low but the last time I printed (about 2 weeks ago) it was printing just fine. Besides, it doesn't go from low ink to absolutely nothing on the page.

    can you please provide your operating system, service pack, processor speed, RAM.

    But basically try to do a test print by going to start>control panel>printer and faxes then right the icon for your printer then properties then click on test page, you might have more than 1 icon so try all. if this fails delete the icon then go to device manager. look for composite device under usb controllers then uninstall it. disconnect the printer and reconnect it and it should create a new icon then try to print again.. if not then uninstall and reinstall the printer driver

Printer shows job in progress so cannot uninstall


Make sure there are no print jobs stuck in the print queue so you can successfully uninstall the printer from your computer. You can try this approach:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.



When the print queue is cleared, try to uninstall again.



I hope this helps. Thanks.

Our HP Laserjet P4015N printer prints slow. It prints, stop, prints, stop and so on. It is working from a print server (Windows 2003) and we have update the driver. It might work for a day, but then it...


If it is a local issue to your printer it is likely that the fuser temperature is set to low. If the fuser temp is set low then it will pause printing in order to maintain a whatever temp it is set at. If you web out to your printer(type in the ip address of your printer) you will find the menu for the printer. Somewhere in there will be the option to increase or decrease the fuser temp. Sometimes it is as obvious as FuserTemp;Higher, HIgh, Normal, Low, Lower. Other times like on the cp2025 color laser i have it is under the extended print modes option, and it is under fusing with the options of; less fusing (-2), less fusing (-1), normal, more fusing(+1), more fusing (+2). however the option is presented on your printer you will want to increase the fuser temp. do it incrementally and see what works best from you. If this does not solve the problem there may be a problem with the spooler dropping packets from your print server. Hope this helps.

I have a usb cable for my printer , it is long but not sure if it is to long ,when i send a job to print it is taking too long and wont print what can i do , i have the epson sx 410 series


Most USB cables are 3-6 ft. long. Longer ones tend to attenuate the signal, but that normally happens when the cable is beyond 15" or 5 meters. Did this just start happening? Try un-installing and re-installing the printer drivers.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!
Thanks, Joe

Printing blank pages on Lexmark C510 printer. Throws a 34 Short Paper error first, prints out a blank page. I have replaced the black toner, but problem continues. Demo page printed colors successfully but...


For 34 Short Paper error, reseat the tray guides and make sure it is set properly. Also, set the correct settings in the computer. For blank pages, always double-check the paper settings and again the settings in the computer. For not printing black, print the Print Quality page and see what color is not printed or not showing. If Print Quality shows black, try printing any document from any application in the computer. Check if you still have the problem. If problem is not resolved, leave a comment so I can get back to this.

DELL 1720 PRINTER PRINTS VERY SLOWLY.


Whenever I have a customer tell me their printer seems to be running slower, 9 times out of 10 its what they're trying to print...not the printer. Heres a couple of things to do and ask yourself. First I'd do a test print from the printer itself. Does it kick it right out? Then go to the printer folder on the computer, right click on the printer, go to properties..click print test page. Does that come out pretty quick? Okay if they seem relatively fast then its beginning to look like something other than the printer. Try printing the job that seems to run slow. Then try printing from a different program. Is there a difference in speed? The job that prints slow may have graphics or require more memory then it use to. Perhaps you changed the graphics content on the page and the printerr is taking more time to process it. Adding more memory to the printer can help that.

Did you make any software change to the printer about the same time you noticed the slow down?
Have you changed the font color in the computer to something other than black for that particular print job? I've seen monochrome (black and white) laser printers slow down because its trying to convert the job to say violet or some other color. Its a black text printer and apparently printing color confuses it ..lol My bet is..if you really sit down and think back...something changed in the content of what your printing thats taking it longer to process it. Hope this helps!

Laser jet 2430tn printing slow


Check the way your print Jobs Spool up in your PC. you may have a totally different set up for printing in your new computer that takes two or three extra steps(such as spooling the print job) prior to actually sending it to the printer to be printed. If you have a user manual for your new computer, check the printer set up and see if it is set up to print directly to printer or print to spooling folder then to printer. Also try a different driver if you wish, I know the 2430 can use either PCL5 or PCL6 drivers... I'd start there and see if there is a difference.... the problem isn't your printer obviously its the way your computer is communicating to it. Best of luck to you.

I have (4) documents to print, but it won't print. It says: 4 document(s) pending owner


To cancel a print job in Windows you can use one of the following two methods:

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB WITH THE PROGRESS METER:
When you send a print job to the printer, the Status Monitor will appear in the bottom right corner of your screen. Another printer icon for the PROGRESS METER will also appear in the taskbar while printing is taking place. This PROGRESS METER is there so you can manage print priorities or cancel print jobs.

1. Highlight the print job in the PROGRESS METER box.
2. Click on DOCUMENT and CANCEL, or, right click on the job name and left click CANCEL or DELETE.
3. Confirm cancelling the print job.

CANCELLING A PRINT JOB FROM THE PRINTERS WINDOW:
If no PROGRESS METER appears, you can access the document queue in this fashion:

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS (START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS and FAXES in Windows XP).
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, left click PURGE PRINT JOBS (98,ME), or CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS (2000,XP). (Or, double-click on the printer name to see and modify the status of documents in queue.)
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.

Keep in mind that once information has been sent to the printer it resides in the spooling folders within Windows. It may a while for printing to stop as this data clears the system.

If the printer continues to print (ie multiple copies of a cancelled job, or garbled print) remove the rest of the paper from the printer and allow it to run out. Once an "out of paper" type error appears on your screen, cancel the documents. Once all print job information has deleted, reload the paper and press the paper feed button once to clear the red light and return the printer to a ready state.
