First of all, restart your system and your printer. Leave the printer off for few minutes (let the printer get cooled) and then reconnect it's usb cable and try giving a print command. If the problem persists, uninstall it's drivers and reinstall it. It'll be helpful if you update it's driver.

It's also important to run a registry cleaner and system cleaner.

If you have further problem, do let me know with the description of the outcome from the above tips.

Good luck.

Brother 4800 printer how to print on both sides


If your printer does not have a duplex unit then the printercannot print double sided pages automatically.
You can print double sided pages but you have to do it one page at a time.
First print Page 1 then place the page back into the paper tray, but turn thepage upside down and the print Page 2.
Then print page 3 on one side then page 4 on the other side and repeat for therest of the document.
I suggest you try a test page first, to get the printing the right way up onboth sides of the page so it reads correctly.

Print queue stops document and will not resume


Hi,

Clearing the Print Queue in Windows:

Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.


Goodluck,

Konica Minolta 1350 printer won't print with Vista


Also try turning spooler OFF/ON. Also, try turning 1350 OFF/ON. Those sometimes work. But 1350 had same problem with W98SE so must be a problem in 1350 software(?). I got so tired of this that I bought a Canon MFC which works perfectly. Still use 1350 to use up the toner.

I send a document from WORD (ms vista) and nothing happens. Printer window shows a document to print.. but nothing ever prints. No lights blink as usual, nothing. restarted computer, still nothing.


Vista has most drivers, and certainly supports your printer.
Try this routine.
First turn on your computer.
Now, turn on printer, and connect the USB.
Vista will recognize it.
i) Go to printers and faxes and set your printer as default, because there are other software like One note which could be default.
OR ii) Go to your word document, ctrl+P for print settings, choose your printer from the drop down menu

Cannot print with Lexmark x4875, Windows Vista OS.


You need to cancel all print jobs for a printer, you must have permission to manage documents on the printer.

1. Open printers by clicking the "Start" button , clicking "Control Panel," clicking "Hardware and Sound," and then clicking "Printers."

2. To open the print queue, double-click the printer you are using.

3. Click the "Printer" menu, and then click "Cancel All Documents." Depending on the printer, the item currently printing might finish, but the remaining items will be cancelled.

Next, you may have to change the communication format called the "Spool format."
Please follow the steps given below to change the spool data format:
1. Click on "Start," "Control Panel," "Hardware and Sound" and "Printers."
2. Then, right click on the Lexmark printer icon and left click "Properties."
3. Either on the "Advanced" tab or the "General" tab for some models, there is a "Print Processor" button, left click it.
4. This is the spool format setting. Under "Print processor" it should be set to "Lexmark 4800 series print processor." Next, under "Default datatype," select "NT EMF 1.008."
5. Click "OK" and exit back out to your desktop.
6. Please try printing again.
If this does not help the situation, please describe any differences it does make.

Print not working on my brother MFC-665CW


Do you have several attempts showing in your print que? Go to control panel, then printers, the double click on your Brother printer icon. See if there are documents stacked up. If they are, Windows will not send anything to the printer until all documents are printed in order. I hope this fixes your problem. Thanks for using Fixya.com

I want to print new page of printing printer keeps churning out prvious printing instrctions i am 78yrs old still learning


Hi,

What you need to do is clear out the printing "QUEUE".

.
Clearing the Print Queue in Windows
The printer is one of the slowest devices in a computer system. If you had to wait for it to print your document before you could resume writing, you would quickly go back to using a typewriter. To eliminate the delay, Windows reserves a portion of memory for something called a “print queue” (or spooler). The queue works on a first-in first-out basis. You can continue to use the computer and send jobs to the spooler as it feeds a steady stream of data to the printer.
Print queues are nice, except when something happens in the printer to cause it to stop functioning. Sometimes it is just a paper jam and sometimes it is a bit more serious. If you need to cancel the jobs in the print queue, you can simply double-click the printer icon (in the system tray down by the clock) and open the print queue. Depending upon the length of your document and how many documents are waiting to print, the printer icon may appear briefly or for a sustained period. (Note: This would be a good time to remove the paper from the printer before continuing.) If the icon is not there, you can manually open the queue.
Open the Print Queue
  • Windows 98 - click Start, Settings, Printers
  • Windows XP - click Start, Printers and Faxes
    or click Start, Control Panel, Printers and Faxes
  • Windows Vista - Start, Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Printers
Double-click to open the appropriate printer's queue. The Print dialog box will open. Here you will see a list of all of the jobs waiting to print, along with the status of each job. The first print job is at the top of the list.
To cancel a document in the list, right-click it and select Cancel Printing. Most often, it is better to cancel all of the jobs and then resend the documents to the printer.
Cancel All Documents
  • Windows 98 - click Printer on the menu, select “Purge Print Documents”
  • Windows XP - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
  • Windows Vista - click Printer on the menu, select “Cancel All Documents”
Please note that you must have Administrative rights in Windows XP and Vista to cancel print jobs. If you are the only user, you automatically have administrative rights. If you are on a multi-user computer, you must be an administrator. If are on a network and get a message saying that you do not have Administrative rights, find someone who does.
Under normal circumstances, printing documents are cancelled and will disappear from the queue. If one or more do not disappear, shutdown the computer and restart. When shutting down, you may get a message warning you that your print jobs will be lost if you continue. Tell Windows to shutdown anyway. When you restart, Windows may tell you that you have print jobs waiting. Tell Windows to delete them.
Before you resume work, open the Print Queue from the Start menu. You should find the queue empty. If you are using Windows XP or Windows Vista and the queue is not empty, you will be unable to print. Before trashing your computer, you can try to clear the queue using a secret Windows command.
Click Start, Run, and type “Net Stop Spooler” (without the quotes). Then press Enter. Shutdown the computer and restart. The print jobs should be removed. If they are not, shut down the computer again, take a deep breath, and then go for a long walk. The queue should be clear when you return. Note that you must restart the computer for your printers to resume normal operation.

This should solve your problem, Let me know how it works for you..
