Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I plug in the printer and it keeps feeding the tape printing "junk". I am using it with Aloha and I currently have the same model printer that is a loaner working perfectly. I don't know if this is a driver problem or a printer problem.

Your last print job might have crashed, but it's still trying to send data to the printer.
If you have a Windows system, Go to Printers from the Control Panel and double-click on the printer. If you see any print jobs listed, choose File/Cancel All Documents.

But sometimes that doesn't work - then follow these steps to get rid of all stuck print jobs:

  1. Start –> Run Type “services.msc” without quotes
  2. Find PrintSpooler and Stop the service
  3. Navigate to C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS and delete all files in the folder.
  4. Next Repeat Step 1 and Start the PrintSpooler Service.
Hope that helps - Sam

Why does my epson 1400 keep loading paper straight threw instead of printing?


I have had this problem several times. The culprit is the feed wheel which can get covered with paper dust and it loses it "bite". Epson sells cleaning sheets that are tacky and when run through the printer remove this "dust". I have also resorted to taking a piece of scotch tape and carefully sticking it to the rubber take-up wheel and then gently removing it to pull the paper dust off with the sticky tape. Another problem can be because of not setting the paper type correctly. Check to make sure that the paper type set for the printer is the same as the paper you are feeding.

Canon mp600 printer repeated error code 6B00


After reading through earlier problem fixes, I inserted a piece of Card right through the feed system then taped all the covers and loose paper feed trays closed with masking tape. Picked the whole unit up, turned it upside down and shook it up and down and side to side quite hard. Put it back in place on the desk, undid all the tape and plugged both cable back in and switched it on. It went through a long startup process, spat out the card sheet and has worked OK since then (about 15 sheets printed).
Thanks for all the ideas in earlier fixes.

MFC-7420 "Change Drum Soon" I have had this message for a while. I purchased a new drum. In the meantime the printer continues to print fine, except we have paper feed problems. Is the drum related to...


the only time i've seen the drum affect paper feeding is if paper jams in the drum unit. i would use your current drum until print quality decreases to an unacceptable level. it will not shut down, and you will not see a "change drum message." if your paper feed problem is centered around the cassette/paper pickup area, you can try cleaning your rollers with water and a soft rag, and also make sure your rear paper stopper in cassette isn't pressing too tightly against the rear of paper stack. best to leave 1/8" gap, otherwise paper will not lift properly to the rollers.

My HP 1350 will not print cards/envelopes from the right side of the printer. They have to be loaded on the right but the printer keeps printing in the center.


Printing envelopes with an HP 1350:
If you use MS Word, select ENVELOPES. When address window appears, select OPTIONS on right > select PRINTING OPTIONS > select FEED METHOD option on far right (envelope placed on right of tray face down); select FACE DOWN; select FEED FROM UPPER TRAY. The only problem I have with this is that the address prints off in the lower quarter of the envelope rather than in the center of the envelope as we would write it manually. I am currently working on solving that problem.

Epson Stylus 580rx won't identify vellum paper


Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.

KX-P1124 Dm Printer -- Cannot clear the buffer, keeps printing garbage


Put one page in printer and tape paper so it will not feed as buffer print out data on paper.
May take one minute or one hour, that depends on how many times you hit the enter on keyboard
You must let the printer keep printing no matter if it is one word or one letter. Some old printer do not have cancel on printer, only thru computer or program. I have three in serv. from the 70's
A buffer happen and will always happen after it get information from computer. It takes many sheet of paper

C4 intermec printer


If you're using this printer on a print server then do the following

Turn Printer Off
Disconnect Data Cable
Press & Hold Feed button whilst switching on
Keep Holding Feed Button until test label is complete and light has gone red
Switch Printer off

Reset your Print Server
Plug Data Cable back into printer
Switch Printer on

This should start it printing (unless there are jobs inthe print queue, if there are then they will need to be deleted before printing will commence)

Disc Feeding Problem


I am assuming you are using a PF-2 printer. If you are using a standard HP78 ink cartridge instead of the Microboards cartridge, the unit will only print approx 5 discs before it stops. The microboards cartridges have a security tag under the barcode label that is scanned by a magnetic reader on the left hand part of the unit. If you are careful, you can use a razor blade and remove the label from a microboards cartridge and tape it on the front of a HP ink and save yourself about $25 an ink cartridge...
