Check where your "print" command is going. It sounds like your defauly printer has been set to the
Fax function. Reset it to the printer and all should be fixed.

How to cancel print job

The following should work for any printer connected to a computer running Windows.

Note: the illustrations are from my laptop and at this time all printers are offline.

-From the Start Menu, choose Devices and Printers. It will open a dialogue box similar to the one below.
25741772-dtqtfdfjcjig55lqmujf4hta-3-0.png -Double click your printer. This will open one of two types of printer dialogue boxes:

Type #1
25741772-dtqtfdfjcjig55lqmujf4hta-3-2.png -Click on the document you want to cancel to highlight it.
-In the Document menu choose Cancel.

Type #2
25741772-dtqtfdfjcjig55lqmujf4hta-3-9.png -Click See What's Printing. This will open a dialogue box similar to the one in Type #1.
-Click on the document you want to cancel to highlight it.
-In the Document menu choose Cancel.

*NOTE: Many printers must be online in order to cancel a job.

I hope this helps.

My printer is saying paused and will not print

If you open Devices and Printers, right click on the menu that comes up and click on "See what's printing", a dialogue box should come up with a list of documents to be printed. In the second column is the status of each document. The first one in the queue will probably say "paused". Highlight this, click on the document menu and remove the tick against "pause" and the printing should restart.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Want to print black and white. How?

Setting the font type color in a Microsoft Office Word document to black will ensure that the document prints the text in black. However, if there are images, graphics or photographs within the document, they will more than likely print in color or hued colors similar to black. To ensure that the entire document prints solely in black ink, you must set the color settings on your individual printer to black-and-white

1.Click "File" and then "Print." To open the print dialogue box using keyboard commands, press "CTRL" and "P" simultaneously.
2.Select the printer you are using at the top of the dialogue box under "Printer" and "Name."
3.Click the "Properties" button next to the selected printer. The dialogue box that appears is different for all users, as it depends on the type of printer being used.
4.Click on a tab, button or selection box indicating "Color." Most options include high-quality color, grayscale and black cartridge only. Choosing grayscale will print the document using various shades of gray and other tones such as blue or green that match the actual hues in the document visible on the screen. A photo or picture that may look black or gray could actually have blue undertones. To print purely in black and white with no undertones, you must select either "black cartridge" or "black and white only."
5.Select "OK" to return to the Microsoft Word printer dialogue box. Press the "Print" button to print the black-and-white document.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

Sir i just install new ollivetti printer in post office but page is not accept by printer

Try this:-

Go to your printer's folder. You may access it from start/control panel/printers or start/printers and faxes depending upon your operating system.

There right-click on the printer's icon and select properties. In the dialogue box that comes up go through the tabs to find "Hold mismatched documents." It should be in the advanced tab. When you find it, uncheck the box in front of it. Then click ok the close the box and then try to print again.

Good luck and God bless!

My error light blinks on and off. I stopped my printer in the middle of a printing (I asked for too many copies), and pulled out the last sheet. Turned off printer and computer. Now I have this error...

Maybe you have a finding work to be print. Just check the printer status at the start menu. click the printer and faxes then double click the type of printer that you used. After that, the dialogue box appears then on the top of the box you see the word (Printer) click it and then click Cancel all Document then OK. That process are cancell all the finding document that you print before. If did not remove just switch Off the printer and turned it On again. Try this solution back in back if the finding document was not remove.

Black text Printing using Photo Black

You should be able to set the cartridge it uses when you print, as something like 'Print only black'. Fish around in the printer window when it comes up when it comes up. You may also be able to set this as a default in 'Properties' from the 'Printers' option in Windows, but then it will always try to do this, of course, which you may not want.
