We have 5 canon printers here of different makes and models. The only time it happens is when we run out of ink. Can you tell me what printer model and what you saw on the screens from the time you press File->Print? Did you do any print set up? I'm guessing the problem isn't with the printer but possibly with the software. The software might just need some tweeking/

I have a lexmark x6570 printer it will not print on both sides of the paper anymore it use to print on one side then pull the paper back in as use the other side


Please follow steps below on how to print 2-sided on your printer:
Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) automatically:
  1. Press printmastert_76.jpg.
  2. With a document open, click File > Print.
  3. Click Properties, Preferences, Options, or Setup.
  4. Click the Print Layout tab
  5. From the Duplexing area, select Use Printer Settings from the drop-down box.
  6. Make sure the printmastert_77.jpg light is on.
  7. Click OK to close any printer software dialogs that are open.

Printing on both sides of the paper (duplexing) manually:
  1. With a document open, click File > Print.
  2. Click Properties, Preferences, Options or Setup.
  3. Click the Print Layout tab.
  4. From the Duplexing area, select Manual from the drop-down box.
  5. Select the Print manual duplex instructions check box.
  6. Press Start.
  7. The printer prints the odd-numbered pages and the instruction sheet, which describes how to flip and reload the paper.
  8. Following the instruction sheet, flip and reload the paper with the printed side facing away from you.
  9. The printer then prints the even-numbered pages on the reverse sides of the odd-numbered pages, completing the two-sided sheets.
Note:
  • printmastert_78.jpg button is not functional with a Macintosh operating system. You can print two-sided documents with a Macintosh operating system by using the settings in the Two-Sided menu of the Print dialog.
  • Automatic two-sided printing (duplexing) works only with plain paper in letter and A4 sizes. If you want to print two-sided documents on another size or type of paper, use the manual duplexing method.
  • To return to single-sided printing, make sure the printmastert_79.jpg light is not on.

Can't get the printer to print. tests work, but when i go to print a document, nothing. says the printer is offline. i'm on vista


turn on/off, unplug, plug in2_bing.gif, should reset configs.

take all the paper out, put half as much back in.
check the rollers to make sure no paper or particles are stuck preventing from accepting paper.

go to applications folder for your computer, dbl click printer icon for make of printer. check settings. print 'test document', this should ensure proper printing formats.

lastly, go to web site of printer model and check site for trouble shooting if this does not work above.
hope this helps and good luck

Paper feeds, but won't print. As far as I can tell there is ink.


Ensure the Paper Tray is Not Overfilled Each printer tray has a maximum capacity rating, and this rating is based on a specific paper weight and or thickness. Consequently, situations might arise in which the tray will not be able to accommodate the maximum number of sheets listed in the printer specifications. Verify that the paper is not packed too tightly in the paper tray Adjust the Printer Paper Guides Adjust the paper guides to fit the size paper being used (Figure 1). The guides should be close (1/16" or less) to the paper without touching, so that the paper stays properly aligned without continually rubbing the guides. Locate and Remove Any Obstructions Inside the Printer and Input Tray Open the front cover and make sure the kickstand (if there is one) is engaged. Locate and remove any obstructions within the printer, such as paper pieces, staples, tape, or other objects. Close the cover. Remove all paper from the input tray. Inspect the input tray for any obstructions. Remove any visible obstructions. Reinsert the paper. Determine if Multiple Sheets Are Fed at Once From the Paper Tray or ADF Determine if multiple sheets are fed at once from the the paper tray or Automatic Document Feeder (ADF). Verify the print media installed is compatible with the printer Clean the ADF Paper Feed Roller Disconnect the AC power from the printer. Open the cover of the Automatic Document Feeder (Figure 1). Figure 1: Raise the Cover of the Automatic Document Feeder Using a damp paper towel, gently wipe the rubber roller to remove any ink or paper debris (Figure 2). Figure 2: Paper Feed Roller on the Automatic Document Feeder Close the cover and reconnect the power. Reseat the Dell Printer Power Adapter If your printer has a momentary loss of communication with your computer, it may be necessary to reset the printer to re-establish communication. You can reset a Dell? inkjet printer by unplugging the printer power cord from the electrical outlet and from the back of the printer for 10 seconds then reattaching the cord at both ends. If the printer queue icon is showing in your system tray (by your clock), you may have documents that are paused for printing. To resume printing a paused document: Double-click the printer queue icon to check document status of the active printer. Right-click on any documents that show Paused under Status, and then click Resume in the drop-down menu. Try a Different Type of Print Media Many image quality and paper feed issues are caused by the type of print media being used. Try a different type of print media that is specifically made for this printer. Replace the printer.

Printer prints all pages on one sheet of paper


what application are you printing from? also, can you do a print preview to see if there are more than one page? if that works, then your printer mechanism is not following the driver information from the print queue manager.
