I got the right driver now, but it still won't print
I finally found the right driver and got it installed. The computer is reading the correct model and everything, but I can't print directly from a document or a web page. The copier function is fine. The parallel interface cable is new from the package (I'm assuming) as it was included with the unit and was in a sealed plastic pouch. The connections are secure. What could be the problem? I wonder if that is why it was sold as refurbished.

Re: I got the right driver now, but it still won't print
Try to check with the manufacturers website, they may have new softwares drivers for the printer you have now. but in any case, when you want to print directly from a web page, you must do some tweaking in order to print it. i want you to check on the printer settings about this and check also your HELP contents of your explorer.

It sounds like the printer driver you have on your PC has become corrupt. It can also be that when you set the printer to print from your iPad that could be the root of the problem. I have had similar problems when I have tried setting up peripherals with my iPad. Try disabling the iPad from printing and re-setup the printer on your PC. If the printer then works you have found the problem. If not, I am sorry, but nothing short of removing the printer driver from your PC and re-installing it from scratch is the best way.
Click on Start, on the far right you will see Devices & Printers, click on that. There should be two categories of listings (I am hoping that you are using Windows 7) - "Devices" and below that the list of "Printers." I have quotes there because you may not recognize some of the items. Don't delete any of them besides the one for the physical printer you are using. Once you have removed the printer driver, re-boot your system. If your printer is fairly new (a year or two), when the computer gets to the desktop it should have a message pop up saying that it found a device and it's going to install the driver. If it asks for a installation CD, insert it into your optical drive now. The computer will (read should) take it from there.
I hope this solves your problem.
Look at the printer, it has a brand and model. Go the the manufactures website, and under support look for downloads. There should be a way to look up your downloads by model number. Once found you are looking for drivers. Download and install the drivers that match your Operating system. I suspect this is a print driver issue. With out a brand and model number my instructions can not be more complete.

Hi, Did you set this printer as the default printer? To do this go to Start - Printer and Faxes, right click on HP printer, select Set As Default Printer. If you are not see your HP Deskject F340 there, that mean your printer driver is not installed. Please install your printer driver. If you already set it as the default and it is still not printing. Restart your computer to try solve problem. You said that printer scans so the connection between your computer and printer is fine. Problem is your computer doesn't take the printer as it's printer device yet. Hope this will help. Thanks for reading
If you are sure that you have the right printer ..go to device manager (right click on my computer ..properties..../hardware ..device manager ) and look for the printer ...and if it is in yellow with an ask sign on it ..,click right on the device (printer ) and choose update driver ..and run the wizard and follow what it says at the final before ..finish .. if it says the a problem was on ..and the device wasn't installed proper ...it means that you do not have the right driver and you need to download it again from the support site ..and run it into computer ..(but not before removing the old one completely and be sure that you got read of all traces of it ..) http://my.okidata.com/pp-C5200n.nsf/openingdrivermenu?OpenFrameSet follow the exact instructions on that page ...and be sure you selected the operation system correctly
Try to download and install the driver from the Lexmark website. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/cbIao7. Choose the operating system of your computer by clicking on the Microsoft, Macintosh, Linux/Unix, or Others dropdown found below the page. Then, choose the correct driver compatible with your computer's operating system. Install the software. Hope this helps but if you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get right back to it. Thanks.
If the size or resolution won't work right then it is usually a software issue and most probable fix is to install a new updated driver for your model and your operating system. Try googling your printer model for a driver(sample is Kodak X5300 driver) and you should find one free easily. Download and install the driver and this should fix it.
First of all, Alps MD inks do not "Dry up". They are dry to start with!
It sounds like you may be running XP, with the Microsoft driver for this printer installed. You need to load the Alps driver, which you can get by joining the alps or alpsdecal group at http://groups.yahoo.com. You can find the driver in the files section of one of the groups.
Ok, so you have tried a reset and no good. Try this again but this time unplug it too, all cords and cables. Replug, turn it on. Wait. Once reset again, check to see no print jobs queued and if so, cancel all print jobs by clicking on start, control panel, printers, icon of printer, scrol to properties, cancel print jobs. Try reprinting now.
