Printer doesn't print - Printers & Copiers

  • hvs3rd Aug 27, 2008

    I have an Epson 850N Printer. It is in a network with a Mac OS9.2 computer and a Dell Inspiron 5150. It is linked directly into a Linksys Hub and the The Mac is also.



    It always printed with no problems until 2 days ago.



    The printer has disappeared from the CHOOSER, so I can't select it. It is Blinking Red and Green on the Back of the Printer near the Cable connection. I know I had to do something in the past to get past this blinking problem.



    I have rebooted the computer, rebooted the Cable Modem, turn off both the Printer and the Computer and a few other tries, but to no avail.



    I have not added the printer to my Dell and only use the Epson 850N for the Mac.



    Do you have a way for me to get it back up and showing up in my CHOOSER again? Can this be done without reinstalling the printer software? If I don't have the software, if I need to reinstall do you have free shareware for this?



    HELP!!! My wife needs to print to this printer!



    Let me know what you can do.



    Thanks.

    Hello arlenedelane,



    Here to assist you. Can you tell me the operating system that you are using, what brand and model the printer, and whether your printer is standalone or network?

Hi arlenedelane,

Make sure the printer is added to your printer properties. And that the drivers are installed.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Why doesn't my printer communicate with m,y computer?


Try uninstalling and reinstalling or doing a repair. Make sure you have your install cd handy. You can uninstall or repair by going to control panel > hardware and sound > devices and printers. Then right click on the printer and either troubleshoot or remove the printer all together.

Doesn't print correctly, the film doesn't go where it should


Hello Carlo,
When you say your printer doesn't print correctly, could you give some more details? What is the problem with the printing?

Also, could you may attach a photo / card scan which shows the problem? The internal test card would be best (press the small test button on the rear of the printer.

Regards,

MC.

HP 5150 Deskjet -- black printing abruptly stopped. Prints appear with color but no black. Switching black cartridges doesn't help. Clean print heads operation doesn't help. Switching computers...


There are very few things you can do, other than what you have aleady done.
I would recommend a decision on how much the unit cost and how long you have used the
printer vrs. what HP or a local authorized service center would charge to repair it.
If you have refilled ink cartridges, this is problem that can arise due to ink drying on the
print head as the black cartridge is use the most.

My printer won't print. my computer is hooked up to it, and it doesn't give any error messages. it just doesn't do anything.


Go to Control Panel/Printers. Right click on your printer's name, and hit Print Test Page. If printer prints a page out, then the problem is likely with the software you're using to print - make sure you have selected the right printer in the dropdown. If the printer's name doesn't show in the Printers folder of Control Panel, the driver for it has not been installed. Do so and try again.

If an inkjet printer has not been used for some time and several print head cleaning has been done and it still does not print properly then the nozzles in the print head are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent nozzles blocking with dried ink.
You need to replace the print head to get the printer functioning again.
But these print heads are expensive to replace, it may be better to buy a better and a later model printer for not much more costs.
