Start from the beginning. Check that everything is connected between the computer and printer. Be sure the power is on. In Windows XP, go to the control panel and find "Printers and Faxes". Double click on that. If you don't find your printer in the list of printers and icons, click on the "Add Printers" button on the left column. Follow the steps to install your printer. When you print, make sure the printer is selected. If you have more than one printer icon (and you only have one printer), right-click on the icon for your printer, and find the button that says " Set As Default Printer". Click on that so that the printer is the one that will print your files. You'll see a check-mark next to the icon which indicates that it's the default printer. If you have multiple icons for the same printer, delete the ones that aren't being used.
Once your printer is set up properly, try printing something to be sure it works.
If it doesn't and you can't figure out what's wrong, you may have a faulty cable. Try another one.
When you go to print you file, click on "File", then "Print". Then you can see which printer is going to be used. If your printer isn't shown in the box at the top, click on the scroll box and see if your printer is there. Click on it if you see it in there. If you simply click on the printer icon on the tool bar, you won't know which printer has been selected. Use the "File" and "Print" commands instead to gain access to more information about your printer selection, paper type, preferences, etc. Good luck!

Hello, sounds like your drivers are messed up, reload them to the computer or the connection cable maybe bad. If neither of these fix then the printer is bad.

My office jet G85 won't print. No error messages appear,it has a new color cartridge,it copies, but won't print from my computer.


If it copies ok, then the issue is either the way it is cabled to computer or the print driver software settings on pc.... How is it connected via USB? Check port and correct driver is in windows/control panel/printers. Reinstall.

Have you tried using the other printer that is not checked? Make it your default printer if it works, and delete the other one.
If neither works, then delete both, and reinstall software.
