The printer and other peripherals comunicate with a computer via a small program or softwarecalled a "driver". You first need to go the manufacturers website "like www.hp.com" and go to their support page. Here you can locate the newest release of their drivers. You will need to locate the correct driver by looking for your printers model driver and it might specify your operating system "like Windows XP". Follow the instructions on how to install the driver because it might or might not require you to uninstall your current driver. If there are no instructions on how to install the driver, then follow the recomendations of going to the printers properties and deleting the printer. After this isdone, go ahead and install the new driver by runing the self executabe file that you just downloaded. Restart your PC and your printer should pick up the new driver. If it does not, then when you get a message that asks you to locate the driver, simply browse your way to the location of the downloaded files. I know this can be kinda confusing but inthe end it will save you $

My printer simply wont print, I just get blank pages even when printing the test page. I have tried cleaning, deep cleaning nozzle alignment, everything!


HI there,
It sounds like you've done everything right, and it still won't print. Your printer is dead - and you need a new one.

My Canon Pixma IP 2200 Inkjet Photo Printer won't respond to any printing commands. It is installed in my programmes. I have tried troubleshooting re setting but it still won't work.


Bottom right of your computer screen where your speaker icon would be? Is there a printer icon?
Printers will buffer (collect) till they can be printed. even if you shut down your computer and restart, these buffered print ques may not leave - printer traffic stops on this first print in the Que.
Right mouse click this printer icon and open all active printers. if there is more then one in this buffer, then select all of these and cancel them..

If this doesn't help and your USB and power cables are connected then unplug your USB cable and wait about 10 seconds and then reinsert your usb cable - see if your computer responds by indicating your printer has been identified. And try printing then.

Best photo printing and general use printing. Canon

Printer not responding to PCs print instruction All cable connections checked and appear firm in outlets. Will not print either new or existing files


Hi,

Are you able to make copy from printer or print test page ?
If you are not able to make copy from printer or print self test page
Check if the cartridges are not empty.
If they have ink, follow the steps below

1. Disconnect the power cable from back of printer
2. While holding the # and 6 button on front panel of printer connect the power cord to printer.

* Note : This is semifull reset and this will erase fax logs and any wireless settings on the printer.
You will have to re-setup the printer on wireless network.


Or if the copy works fine from printer and you are not able to print from PC only, follow the solution below.

Hp Besiness inkjet 1100 fault codes cayan maginta ink and paper lights come on dead


HP Business Inkjet 1100 stops everytime after the first line stars to print. The power is one, the ink drop light is lit, the "yellow" indicator light also on, and the paper light all on. None of them blinking. We replaced the yellow cartridge with a brand new HP 11 yellow cartridge. Turned the printer off and on to reset. Printer comes on everything looks good till you try to print anything, even a on line word doc? Then it happens again, so we replaced the yellow again...same thing. We ever cleaned print heads, Any assistance would be welcomed?

Canon ip1600 ink cartridges are not recognized?


First make sure you are placing the right
color cartridge into the right slot.
Most Printers are touchy about the
installation of ink cartridges. If the
instructions say to press the cartridge
into the slot until you hear a loud click,
that's what they mean. If at first you
don't succeed, remove the cartridge and
reinsert it into the slot again and press
on it hard till it clicks.
Then your printer should work properly.
Hope this is of some help. Bud

Printer will not print black ink


Seems to be a common fault with Kodak EasyShare 5100/5300

Contact Kodak Support and go though the following tests:

Remove and re-seat Printer Cartridge(s) - Done

Clean Printhead - Done

Calibrate Printer - Test Sheet Not Complete!

Run Computer Colour Test - Done

They will then send you a new Print Head.
