    We recently built an online app, and when we print in IE, it prints double.  Every other browser prints fine, but for some reason IE specifically will double the number of pages. We are currently searching for a solution.

It sounds like an older printer. How old is it? USB? Is it printing the same text twice or a different text but the same message? Did it ever print properly before?
U may want to look at the printer properties. Could be incorrect driver also.

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.

Dell Computer says Dell Printer 1700 is "ready" but when try to send a print command a little window opens in the lower right corner of the desktop and says the printer is "offline"


Double check which is the default printer. It should have a check. Or choose the printer while using manual print instead just print.

I cannot get my document printed. when i try to print I get the message printer is busy then , another message that states a printing error occurred appears


Open Notepad and type the following lines:
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

Save it in your root directory as: C:\DeletePrintJobs.cmd
Create a shortcut for it and move it to your Desktop

Now everytime you have print job(s) that got stuck in the print queue
go to your desktop and Double Click on the DeletePrintJobs.cmd

It will clear all pending print jobs in the print queue and allow you to
print new jobs again.

How may i print for Both Side Printing?


Hi,

Both side printing depends on the printer. It's a feature which require a hardware in the printer known as Duplexer. Which automatically turns the paper and prints on the other side. Some printer may not come with duplexer but if they support duplex printing, you can but the duplexer for the specific printer and attach it at the back of the printer.

If your printer supports duplex printing, when you click on print, click print preferences as shown in the fig 1 below.

Fig1

Click on finishing tab >> put a check on Print on both sides under document optoins section

Click Ok to close the preferences window

Click Ok to send the print job to the printer

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

Increase font size on printed matter, i.e., emails, etc.


Go to your printer,right click on printer and go to Preferences, make sure you are using Letter size of 8.50x11.00. Under your paper quality print documents on 8.50x11.00 (scale to fit).

On IE go to view click Text size and select from smallest to largest text.
To change the Font size in IE go to control panel, open the display-open the appearance tab and change the font size.

Will not print photo from main tray


The printer will automatically select the "Print Quality" Media based on its driver settings or the device settings.

You will need to access the properties of your printers software to assure that you have selected photo paper for the tray you wish.

Depending on which model of printer your using, you may have to access the Settings/Options/Page Setup/Tray Setup Menu. Consult your Owners Manual for settings these Tray options. Make sure you have set the tray you wish for Photo Paper (or comparable quality option)

Let us know
Good luck
