Won't print from computer


Try borrowing another suitable printer lead and test with that. If the printer can do a self test, it is likely the printer is not the problem. If that does not work, if you can, use another printer with your computer - but set it up first. Failing that come back for more help

Printer saying recieving data and is not printing


First check the printer itself is working OK by printing a test page.
Most printers have a power-on self test (eg press feed button while pressing power on - please consult your manual). If the test print is OK, then it's the PC or connecting cable. You could try any other PC or laptop (you would have to instal your printer software first) but just try re-installing your printer software first on YOUR computer. If that doesn't work try any other PC or Laptop available as directed above.
USE A FILE THAT YOU HAVE PRINTED OK BEFORE IF POSS.
If none of the works then the cable is suspect.

Hi, we have a GCC Elite XL 40N Printer at work on a network with about 12 computers attached to it. One day when I wasn't here, (so im not sure how it started) It started printing A LOT of sheets with...


This could be caused by a few different problems with the printer but here are some troubleshooting techniques that may help:

1. Check that the printer is able to print correctly on its own. Print out a configuration page from the printer or install the printer onto a new machine as a local printer and print out a test page. If this prints out as symbols, the problem is a most likely hardware error and the printer will need to be serviced. Try step 2 before servicing. If the printer prints normal characters, go to step 3.

2. Carefully go through the settings on the printer and review the printer's configuration page to make sure everything has the correct settings and nothing was changed accidentally.

3. The most common problem is that the drivers on the print server, or on the server computer, have become corrupted. In Printers and Faxes on the print server, delete all the drivers for the printer, reinstall them, and then add the printer again. Make sure to print a test page at the end of the add printer wizard.

4. It could be a problem with the ethernet cable so try swapping the current ethernet cable with a new one.

5. If it is still printing symbols at this point, it is most likely a hardware issue and the printer will need to be serviced.

Printer goes through the motions but text does not print


Let's first test the printer independant of your computer:
Try printing a test page using the instructions here: http://www.ehow.com/how_2006016_perform-test-epson.html. I hope your model printer is listed there. If not, try to find instructions specific to your model in your model's user guide or elsewhere on the internet.

If this works and printing from your computer doesn't, then:
(???Bad print drivers???) Reload the print drivers on your computer.
(???Bad cable???) Try replacing the printer/USB cable that connects this printer to your computer.
(???Bad USB port???) Try using a different port to connect the cable to your computer.

If none of this works you either have a faulty ink cartridge or a more serious issue with the printer. Depending upon the model, unfortunately, it might be cheaper to replace than repair.

Prints pages with no words but symbols


Print test page from the printer. This prints fine? Then anytime a printer prints gibberish versus what you were trying to print from the computer means you should try one of two things. Download the most recent drivers from the products support site, install these. Be sure to uninstall the old drivers first. Another item that can cause gibberish print is a bad cable. Swapping out with a known good could solve the whole problem.

Print test page from the printer. This does not print fine? Then you are looking at something wrong with the printer. The cable and drivers would not be the cause because the only piece of equipment involved at this point is the printer. First step I would try in solving this. Download and update the firmware from the support site. If this does not work, then you may have a defunct printer. If you are under warranty, contact Dell tech support.

It might be time to, but try these first:

(1) Try rebooting the computer (Press Ctrl+Alt+Del>Shutdown>Shutdown OR press and hold the power button down on the front of the workstation/computer/tower/CPU until the unit turns OFF)

(2) If that doesn’t work, then try clearing the print queue: Start>Settings>Printers>Double-click on the printer>Right-click on the print job(s) and click cancel/delete/purge documents and try reprinting a document

(3) If that doesn’t work, then try a power cycle: Try turning the printer off, then unplug the power supply from the printer, then unplug the USB cable from the printer then the back of the computer; wait 30 second; then plug the USB cable back into the computer, then back into the printer then plug the power supply back into the printer and turn it on – run a test print

(4) Run a Test Print: Start>Settings>Printers>Right-click on the printer>Properties>Print Test Page

Canon MX700 network problems


Once you have it installed and working on the USB port go to the properties page of the printer.
1) Select the "Ports" tab.
2) Select "Add Port".
3) Select "Canon BJNP Port".
4) Select "New Port".
5) Fill in the IP Address of your printer and select "Next".

Make sure that the Port is checked back in the properties page and select "Apply" and your done. Do a test print and your printer should work on your network. You may still need to fix the settings on your firewall or router to allow access if it does not print.
