Hi I accidentally set the ink cartridges output to "restore fatory settings.' Now the printing colours are too dark, an obviously using a lot of some colours more than others. What do I do...

Hi! You didn't mention the brand and model of your printer. However, you can try this:
Click start then go to "control panel", select "printer and faxes". Right click the icon of your printer model, select "properties" then click "printing preferences". From there you can modify the printer settings, though the visual appearance and options may vary depending on the brand of your printer.

This works for Windows XP. However, there's similar options for Windows Vista and Windows 7 (Visual appearance and label may appear differently)
Please rate me if this helps you. Thank you for using fixya, have a nice day! ^_^

After I changed the ink cartridge, my printer will copy but it will not print.

Check your data cable and the printer status. (Start > Devices and Printers in Win7, Start > Printers in XP for example.)

Try a new cable. (if USB, try a new port. Use a direct connection - remove a print server or USB hub.) Does the computer think that the printer is ready or offline? Are there files stuck in the printer queue? They may need to be manually removed by stopping and restarting the spooler. In Windows this can be done in the Command Prompt (tun as administrator by right clicking in Vista or Windows 7) window. Type "net stop spooler" <enter> without the quotes. At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <enter>. Then restart the computer.

I hope this helps.

Printer status window interface stopped working dell AIO 926

I know this sounds too simple, but get a new USB cord. I had the exact same problem and it was driving me crazy. I followed all the advice about uninstalling, reinstalling and updating multiple times and it never fixed the problem. Finally, my husband made the simple suggestion that maybe it was a problem with the connectivity of the USB cord. I didn't have much faith in it, but I bought a new USB cord and hooked it up - and I have never had a problem with the printer since then. My original USB cord (the one replaced) was the one that came with the Dell printer - perhaps there is a flaw in the cord somewhere. ?

Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore. Choose an available date prior to the date you installed the problematic software.

IP4200 will not print pictures

This is an Internet Explorer problem.Using Vista O/S Windows IE seems to associate some or all of its searches with NotePad, and therefore prints out the source code. I could not find a solution, or a method of changing the file association in Vista or in IE, so I downloaded Mozilla Firefox, and this works fine with Vista. So, from now on I just ignore IE

There must be a better fix than this, but this has got my computer working again for now.

Job Status Window Interface has stopped working.

The issue usually occurs if you are using windows xp drivers on a vista machine. It's strange that the error does not come up when printing from internet explorer 7.0.

There is a file on that you can run to remove any xp drivers and then run the vista installation file. that should take care of these error messages from the operating system.

you can copy and paste the following links to download and run the files :

Patch file to remove xp drivers:

Windows Vista Compatibility

I had to go to my firewall and check the history. I happen to be running the Norton firewall right now and the Lexmark interface was marked as "auto" for access to the Lexmark site. I changed the setting to "Allow" and it immediately began to print. I am using the cjr3300en driver which is the current listed on the Lexmark site for Vista.

It seems not compatible

Please confirm are you using Windows Vista 32 bit or 64 bit

To determine product compatibility status , we looked at whether:
  • The product has earned the Certified for Windows Vista, Works with Windows Vista, or Games for Windows logo, which indicates that it has been tested for compatibility.
  • The device manufacturer or software publisher states Windows Vista support for the product.
