Replaced ink cartridge, and printer would not print. now we got the printer printing and it won't stop printing the same thing over and over

***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
if it is printing the same document over and over again, probably you hit a couple of times before, all we need to do is to cancel the print queue. first turn off the printer before it prints the next page, or once it finished the doc its printing, remember not to turn it off, in the middle of printing. unplug the usb cable. you did not mention your operating system,
for widows xp, click start->control panel->printers and faxes->right click on the printer icon->cancel all documents, delete the icon: right click on the icon then select delete,
for vista: click start->control panel->switch to classic view (look at the upper left side)) ->printers ->right click on the printer icon->cancel all documents, delete the icon: right click on the icon then select delete,

the icon will disappear but it will come back once you replug the usb cable , so next is to replug the usb cable, tehn try printing

***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

First of all it is not that necessary to click the Unplug Eject Icon for removing the Hard Disk. Default with Windows XP Opearating System there is a option for removing the USB External Devices without clicking the Unplug Icon. So no need to worry.

How to download photos from vivicam 4100

Hookup the camera using the supplied USB cable. Turn on the Camera. And wait!!! Sometimes the VISTA PC will recognize the camera in a minute or two, sometimes longer. Turning the camera on and off will cause an icon to appear in the 'Computer' window momentarily, but it usually disappears!

I have taken many, many pics with my trusty 4100 and have been able to transfer ALL of them by exercising extreme patience.

Just keep checking the Computer window for the USB icon.

Good Luck,

Hard disk icon disappeared from desktop

To add the hard disk icon back onto your desktop, first click the "Finder" button in the dock. It is the dark and light smily face icon at the end of the dock.

Next, click the "Finder" menu item at the top of the screen and then "Preferences". In the "Finder Preferences" window that opens, click the "General" button. From there you can select what system items appear on your desktop. You can click "Hard disks" to re-add the hard disk icon.

Wont connect to wireless network

first, I suggest trying a different USB port. remove the adapter and the icon should disappear, so if the usb port is loose or broken that may be why its acting like that. Plug it into a different port and try it. You may have to reinstall the driver for the next usb port depending on your system
