If you're using a MAC System

> Delete the printer in the printer list ( make sure that there's no printer left in the printer list for the CX 8400 )
> Click on the plus sign to add the printer again in the printer list
in the Printer Brouser window you should see the printer listed there via USB connection., Click on it and check under
"Print Using" if the CX8400 driver is listed ( not a guten print driver )

> If CX8400 driver is listed under Print Using., click on add and try to print.

Canon printer won't print wirelessly


there is always a way to fix things,

it may be the settings in the printer itself. it does need to be configured to work on the network, you will need to see if it is on the network firstly. then setup ip settings afterwards to get it going, then a re setup on the computer.

If you would like additional assistance with setting it up I am available to do it with you on TeamViewer so you can watch what I do for next time.

Regards,
Adam

Won't Print Color Ink


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Only prints first job - can't delete from que


Please try this approach instead:

1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.


I hope this information has been helpful.

Hi I have a Lexmark X75 which won't print....status button is flashing, don't have drivers disk to reinstall and can't seem to find online....any suggestions? Thanks.


Hello Lchalfa,

  • Okay, so I go to the Lexmark web site. This is the page where you download the files you need. (Either because you've lost the original CD, or because you want a more up-to-date version.)
  • Choose inkjet printers
  • Choose Z705
  • Choose the operating system you have (such as Windows XP)
  • Click on the file and choose Download and Run
  • The program will unpack into a folder on your hard disk, then run to install the printer.
Thanks.

My epson stylus cx6000 has stopped printing black. I've cleaned the print head, changed the cartridge and it still won't print black. What else can I do?


Be sure you are using genuine epson ink. Epson printers are "smart" and will not allow generic ink to work properly. Even after you replace a generic with a genuine it may take several print outs and alignments to get it to print again.

My computer can not find the printer - Windows Vista


If your printer is wireless you will still need to hook it up to the computer using a USB wire. You also need the printer install disk, called a driver that came with the printer. If you don't have the disk, don't worry. You can download it for free. Just google the name of the printer followed by the word driver. Then follow the prompts to down load it and load it into your computer..

Installing without the disk


Gabbyone, Here is the page to download drivers for your printer. Just click on the link for the appropriate operating system you need: http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:525:0:0&emeaframe=&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&target=http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi&&req=::::: As far as why is it printing purple it could be several reasons but some common ones are; you?ve run out of a particular ink color, one of your ink jets could be clogged or damaged, your cartridge was refilled wrong and on occasionally a software driver gets messed up. Reinstall your printer, do a test and if it still prints purple try running your printers nozzle cleaning utility. If that fails post another questions and give us some history, how long has it been since you?ve printed, are you using new Lexmark or refilled cartridges and any other pertinent information.
