Check that you have the printer selected as the default printer. To do this, click on start-settings-control panel-printers and faxes. Then right click your printer icon and set as default. Then try printing from Word again. If this does not work, do you have multiple installations (icons) of the same printer? If you do, try one of the others. If it works, set this one as default and delete all the other copies. Please provide feedback on this, particularly if you need further help.

My printer won't print letter automatically. It's stuck on printing only legal. If I pull legal tray out it will print letter. But I need it to adjust with alternating print jobs.


Printer wont stop paper, if any page length mismatch,Select page length as any size, as well as while shooting the print command select page length as legal & try it. I feel that teflon not rotating properly, result paper jamming at bottom end. If any paper length faulty printer detects the length give message of mis match..Pl check carefully...

Printer won't print. I went to printer and it says there are 9 items to br pringted in queue but they won't print Printer says it is ready


Good Day Nanawhit!

That happens all the times when first print job encounter a problem and stops printing and it was followed by series of print jobs. Some reasons for stop printing could be a printer out of paper and printer not set as default printer.

The best way to fix it is to cancel all pending jobs. When print jobs window is cleared off pending print jobs, restart your PC and your printer. Then go to your printer and make sure it is the default printer.

After that try printing a test page. Once a test page is successful, you can now print as many as you want.

The printer cuts off the top part of the document when printing. Is this a margin issue?


Yes, most likely your application's margin settings are incorrect. Try printing a test page - NOT from the application. If this is Windows, go to printers in control panel, right-click on the subject printer, choose Properties, then click the Print Test Page button. You should get the standard Windows printer test page with the logo at the top and all the printer specifics below. If the test page is also cut off, look around in the HP-provided software for any margin and/or page size settings that are incorrect, such as A4 paper when it should really be Letter size.

Printing duplex and legal size.


I don't have legal size paper to test this with so it's a theoretical point but it looks like the printer will not do duplex in anything other than:
  • A4
  • Letter
  • B5 (JIS)
  • Executive
You can always print in duplex manually which is always an option regardless of paper size.

Hope that helps.

My hp laserjet 4 plus printer cannot print excel files


wherer are you printing this, A4 is european, north america would use letter, etc..
if you go to control panel, open the printers and faxes folder, right click the printer in question, a window will pop up, click on properties.. a new window should open. click on "Printing Defaults" or "Printing Preferences" then click on "Advanced" ( I believe it should be to the lower left) that will open another window, in paper size make it Letter if your in N America, A4 for Euro.. this will set the deafult print..
Click ok, then print a test page from the general tab..

The reason you getting this LOAD LETTER message. your excel page setup is set to print to letter, your machine is set to print top A4

If you open Excel then go to Print then a window should pop up where you select the printer you want to use, click on Properties, then Lay out, then Advanced, and input the correct paper size before you print.

does this happen with all excels files, or one particular?
Create a new Excel file, and try printing it.. possibly could be in that particular file. I have seen this happen alott particulary with PDF files.. Where the incorrect paper size is in the file..

Canon BJC 4300 InkJet Printer


i assume the cleaning method that you perform is offline (taking the cartridge our and clean them). I suggest you clean the head during the printer on.. try to perform below steps per the manual Cleaning the printer Printing the test pages Cleaning the print head I assume you do not have the manual anymore (no DVD) i list down the step below Its a bit long manual I suggest you download them from the canon website.. if you still have problem I can send to you the BJC 4300 manual Cleanning printer Make sure the printer is turned off before cleaning it. It is a good idea to unplug the AC adapter also. Do not clean the exterior of the printer with volatile liquids such as thinners, benzine, or any spray-type or chemical cleaners; doing so will damage the surface of the printer. When cleaning the printer, avoid the area near the print head on the BJ cartridge. Do not touch the print head. Ink may leak out and cause stains. Clean the printer regularly to avoid printing problems. Remove any ink mist or paper debris from the interior of the printer using a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean especially well around the platen area. If the rollers become dirty, you can clean them using a small soft brush. Clean the exterior of the printer with a soft cloth moistened with water. Clean away smudges and dust. Do not use paper products (such as paper towels or tissues) to clean the inside of the printer. Printing the Test Pages You can print these test pages to check the operation of your printer and your print quality. Test A This test prints a repeating pattern of characters. Demonstration This test prints a sample page describing the printer's features. Printing the Test Page From Windows You use the Test option on the Control tab in your BJC-4300 Printer Driver for Windows to print a self test, demonstration page, or a nozzle test pattern. Before selecting a Test option, make sure paper is properly loaded in the sheet feeder (see Automatically Feeding Paper starting on page 3-7). Click on the Test option and then click on the Print button. Printing the Test Pages Using the Operators Panel To print a test page, make sure the printer is turned off and paper is loaded. Press and hold the POWER button until you hear the number of beeps that correspond to the test page you want to print. Test Page Number of Beeps Pages Printed Demonstration 1 Continuous Printing Status Information 2 1 Page Test A 3 Continuous Printing Nozzle Test 4 1 Page When you release the POWER button, the test page starts to print. *All self-test prints require Letter or A4 size paper. Using a smallersize paper for a self-test print will result in parts of the printoutbeing printed directly on the platen. All self-test prints are printed in accordance with the current printing settings (font, printing mode, etc.) *Red- Information for technician not included in the user manual Cleaning the Print Head Your printer is equipped with a print head cleaning function to ensure constant high quality printing. Cleaning the Print Head From Windows If you are using Windows, you can execute print head cleaning from the Control sheet in the printer driver. Simply click on Clean Ink Head. 4300 Chapter 4 Page 6 Cleaning the Print Head Using the Operators Panel If you want to clean the print head from the operator panel, follow these steps: 1 Make sure the printer is turned on. Make sure the green POWER light is on. 2 Press and hold the RESUME button for at least two seconds until the printer beeps twice. The POWER light will blink for several seconds while the print head is being cleaned. Perform the print head cleaning only when you encounter a print quality problem. Unnecessary and repetitious cleaning will waste ink. If you execute the print head cleaning while paper is manually loaded, the printer will eject the paper and then perform the cleaning. 4300 Chapter 4 Page 7
