Hi Cheryl,
It's a common mistake to connect the USB cable to your pc
before installing the software. If thats the case, it's probably
the reason why it will not print.

In the past, I have had to disconnect the usb cable, un-install the
the software (sometimes the un-install software is on the CD)
then re-install the software/driver, then when the install software
prompts, plug in the usb.. Or if it does not prompt you to connect
the usb, do so at the end of the software/driver installation. That
is, after you have booted the pc.
Rgds,
dave

connect your epsom stylus to your computer

click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices



if you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver


if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver

how your printer icon is looking on control panel, if dim, it means it is not detecting , if normal it means detecting then,
go to control panel open printers, then open your printer, cancel all the documents, then send a print command and check

I just installed my third printer, a HP D2600, and the printer will print from Word and other installed programs, but will not print anything from the Internet using an email print icon or the printer icon...


this could be a very complex problem if you hooked your printer up to your pc prior to running the driver instalation disk. most printers requie you hook them up when qued by the install. the best advice i can give would be to uninstall the printer remove the printer connewction from the usb and insure it is removed from the device manager located in the properties section of you computer.

XP SP3 sends docs to print que but nothing prints


Open up your print queue. Cancel All jobs.

Go to the start menu and either click on, or search for cmd. This will open the command window. You also need to open your task manager.

In the task manager, search for a process called spoolsv.exe, or if that doesn't exist, find a process with "spool" in the name. This is your print spooling process. Right click the process, and end it. You can close the task manager now.

Next, go to the command prompt. Type "net start spooler" without the quotes, and hit enter. This should restart your spooling process. Close the command window, and try to print.

If this doesn't work, you should check to make sure you're printing to the correct printer. If it doesnt solve the problem, uninstall your current printer (you may have to end the spoolsv.exe process again), and reinstall the drivers for your particular model, which you can find at the manufacturers website.

Printer shows ready, whenI send a print job to the printers it displays printing, but does not print. The unable to cancel or remove printing jobs.


Check if the printhead starts moving when powering on the printer. The problem might lie in the printhead electrical contact pints in which case clean it gently. Alternatively replace the print cartridge where at least black ink is present. If these are OK but it wont pull in the paper then the rollers might be jammed. If its a laser printer,check by changing the tober cartridge amd post the result as a comment.........sodeep

I cannot find a printer to work on Acer Aspire X3200 Vista


any printer will work in your PC...as long as your computer meet the minimum requirement for the printer u choose

before you install the driver..remove or Un install the other program and driver you installed earlier
and restart the PC

you must install the right driver...install the driver that compatible to your Operating System (Xp, Vista), when installing the printer select the right port where you connect your printer (USB, LPT).

they are some installation instruction that you need to install the Printer Driver and Utilities first...then connect the printer or Restart the PC and connect the printer....

goodluck

I would like to use my epson stylus cx7800 to receive and send fax's. Can this be done. Please explain and instruct. Thanks. lstrat@telusplanet.net


If you are running Windows, and have a modem, you can use the Windows Fax Services which are built in.

You may not have it installed, as it's an optional component. Go to Control Pane/Add Remove programs. Select Windows Components on the left hand side. If Fax services is not checked, do so, and press OK. You may need your original Windows install CD to complete the task.

If you still need help with this, please respond to this message. If I have solved your problem, I would appreciate you rating this as "solved".

Good Luck
