An ink system error started occurring on my printer and eventually it would constantly power on and off. Apparently some defective components were used in the construction of the logic board (see photo). On my C6180 there were 3 failed capacitors (the green cylinders - the puffed top indicates failure) and a 4th from the same manufacturer (TEAPO - many unfavorable web references to this manufacturer). I purchased 3x 330uF 16V and 1x 680uF 10v rated to 105 degrees Celsius (total about 60cents). On the logic board, the capacitors I replaced are labeled C613, C614, C660 and C662. If you are not comfortable replacing the parts yourself (or don't have a soldering tool), you will have to find someone who will. The time to repair should be less than 30 min - I did it in 25 min with only a solder pen. This also fixed the ink system failures the printer was having. A similar fix may apply to other printers.

    Want to install printer


    If you are running Windows XP or Windows Vista, you may simply plug in the printer to the computer, and the computer will install the generic driver.

    By default, Windows XP and Vista already has the generic driver installed.

    However, if the printer is not a Plug-n-Play device, you will need to load the CD that came with the printer, and follow the installation wizard.

    Thank you and good luck!

    While trying to print from a microsoft works spreadsheet...it always says "out of memory" and prints a distorted page.


    Hi

    here are some ways to override the problem


    When you try to print
    it says
    Microsoft Works Out of Memory

    This problem may occur if there is a problem with the printer driver that is installed on your computer.


    • Method 1: Install a different printer driver
      Contact the manufacturer of your printer to inquire about how to obtain and install the most recent version of the printer driver for your printer.
    • Method 2: Configure the printer as the default printer
      Configure the printer driver that you have installed as the default printer. To do this, follow these steps:

      1. Click Start, and then click Printer and Faxes.
      2. Right-click the printer that you want to set as the default printer, and then click Set as Default Printer.
      3. Click File, and then click Close.
      4. Start Works, and then print the spreadsheet or the database file.
    • Method 3: Install an emulation printer driver
      If the problem persists after you install the most recent version of the printer driver for your printer, install an emulation printer driver. An emulation printer driver is a driver that imitates the functionality of a different printer driver. For example, you may be able to resolve this issue if you install the driver for the Hewlett-Packard DeskJet 550C printer or for the Hewlett-Packard LaserJet II printer. To do this, follow these steps if the printer is connected directly to the computer:

      1. Click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
      2. Double-click Add Printer.
      3. Click Next, and then click Local printer attached to this computer.
      4. In the Use the following port box, select the port that you want to use.

      If the printer is connected directly to the computer, the port is typically LPT1 (Recommended Printer Port).
      5. Under Manufacturer, click the manufacturer of the printer driver that you want to use as the emulation driver. For example, if you are installing Hewlett Packard 550c, click HP DeskJet 550c.
      6. Under Printers, click the model of the printer that you want to use as the emulation driver, and then click Next. Select HP. In Drivers, select HP DeskJet 550c.
      7. In the Printer name box, type a name for the printer, click Yes to set the printer as the default printer, and then click Next.
      8. Click the appropriate option for sharing the printer, and then click Next.
      9. Click No, and then click Next.
      10. Click Finish.

      Note If you are using a USB printer, go to step 12.
      11. Start Works, and then try to print the spreadsheet or the database file.
      12. Open Control Panel.
      13. Open Printers and Faxes.
      14. Right-click HP 550c, and then click Properties.
      15. Click Ports.
      16. Click USB001 Virtual Printer port for USB.
      17. Click Apply, and then click OK.
      18. Start Works, and then try to print the spreadsheet or the database file.
    Hope this will solve your problem
