Need more info.. 'keep installing' what program..? Has the printer worked correctly in the past? Does the printer work with any other 'program'? Does the printer work from notepad? What operating system are you using? What brand & model of printer is it? Can you install the printer to another pc & test it there? Can you run a printer 'self test'? Thats where you do not have the printer connected to the pc, but hold down some buttons on the printer, to force a self test, to prove the printer actually prints. You can also run a printer test from the operating system.. Eg if you are running windows XP, go 'start button', 'printers & faxes', right mouse click the icon for your default printer, select properties. You should see a button to self test.

When installing usb connected devices..

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 install.
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

CAN NOT CONNECT TO MY PRINTER TO PRINT DOCUMENTS


First check if the printer is already installed into your computer.
Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270

If not please do the following:
1. Check if your printer is connected to the computer via USB, and check if you properly plugged in the power supply.
2. Look for the software or installer of your printer. Insert the CD to the CD-Rom and Install it until the setup completes.
3. After the installation of the printer, click Start>Control Panel>Printers and Faxes, then check if the printer was installed. e.g. Canon Pixma MG5270
4. Then try to print out some document. Just click File>Print and choose your Printer e.g.(Canon Pixma MG5270) then click the O.K. button to print the document.

Canon 4150 wont print , goes into queue


Have you gone into the queue and deleted the print jobs and started again? Do you have any error lights? If so there could be a hardware problem with the printer.
Try taking out the toner and putting it back in. Sometimes that will force the printer to reset intself.
If that doesn't help then you may have to delete the printer from the system and re-install it.

Every time I try to print the dreaded yellow error box comes up.


Hello,

Are you using the "same" printer with your 2 PC? or 2 different printers?

If you're using the same printer, check your cables, power supply, drivers, inks, and lifetime of the printer.

If your using 2 different printer you might have a virus in you pc.

PRINTING PROBLEMS


Maybe I can help;
I'll assume you have a windows operating system.
There are two ways to print, one is hitting the print icon wherever that may be in the current program and the second is to use the longer method of going to: file/print.. which takes to you to the print setup box.
This may be where you need to set the print properties for this particular document.
The first method uses whatever your default printing setup is.. such as which printer, portrait mode,
draft or best quality....etc.

If you always use the same print setup you can set this in; start/settings/control panel/printers/
Your default printer will have a check next to it.
Hope this helps

After installing the HP PhotosmartC5280 All in one printer we can get it to scan and print from new documents. Yet, when trying to print from a saved file we receive the message that we do not have enough...


Try to delete unnecessary files on your computer, coz your computer is low in memory. open up your printer if theres a pending document then try to clean or empty it. boot your pc. Then try to print your document.

My printer will not print. It says printer paused 11 documents waiting. I need to unpause it. I do not know how to do that. I have the hp photosmart c3140 all in one


Go to printer icon in control panel, click to open, right click printer and you will see properties. Click check your ports, Top ports are usually parallel, New printers use CPU ports. Try giving it a USB port if you are using a USB cable. Did your printer print on set up??? If you have the printer disc, delete this printer and go throught the re install, remember, many new HP do not want you to plug in printer till the programs ask.. Good luck
