    Print command is given; the printer starts up, scrolls the paper down; paper stops as if print is about to begin but doesn't, then blank paper scrolls out.

    I'm using Windows X. All is fine with Word and Excel but when I try print from an accounting program the printer spits out the page before the the on screen printer gauge even starts to run through the percentages.

    The technician claims the program is perfect and the my driver is the problem.

Westenn, if there is no black ink on the alignment page, then your black cart is empty or the nozzles need cleaning. Your printouts will be blank if you're printing text since that would be black and you're out of black ink. Try cleaning it by carefully wiping the nozzles with a cotton ball swabbed in rubbing alcohol, and try cleaning the nozzles through the Solution Center. If that fails, try a new black cart - install it, print alignment and then everything should work.

eshchory - the tech may be wrong. If the accounting prog doesn't send print data to the spooler in a way in which the driver expects, then it's not the driver's fault, but worse it's not likely you can resolve the issue. You can try updating both the app and driver to the latest versions to see if it fixes it, but it isn't likely. Sometimes apps like this just won't work with certain brands of printer. If you were to get another brand of printer and see if it prints from the accounting prog, that might tell you once and for all who's to blame.

Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

The printer will print out the test page but it will not actually print anything on a paper whenever i hit print, it just runs a piece of paper through the printer blank

If test pages are working but print jobs aren't, it's almost always a driver issue.
Uninstall and reinstall the printer driver.
If it's still not working, and you're running windows 7, turn off the bidirectional communication mode.
post a reply here if you need further help or if that doesn't work.

No print at brother mfc-24c

"Machine Error 50" (or "Unable to Print") indicates either a simple problem such as a paper or part of a paper stuck inside the machine, which of course is solved by opening the machine as much as possible and remove the reason for the jam.
However, if that doesn't work, the error is mechanical, and there isn't much you can do. If the message comes back right after turning on the machine, you'll have to have service performed on the machine.

I would first try to see that your paper trays are set correctly. Meanning that the paper size are set to the same paper size in the tray. The knobs that input the paper size Magicly they move. Also, make sure that you clear out all the print jobs in the print "Q". Some body may have a odd paper size tring to print. Also, has anyone chaged anything on your network or the setting in the copier?

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Test page print within Win XP

This printer requires special software to print labels with. It uses a unique PCL language to work with. Thats why when you use these printers with Fedex or UPS software, it typically downloads forms first before working.

Zebra used to see a label designer program to work with it. You might want to check with them to see if they still carry it.
