I'm assuming you're using Windows here.

In XP:
Click the Start button
Click Run
Type "services.msc" (without the quotes)
Click OK

In Vista/Windows 7:
Click the Windows Orb
Type "services.msc" (without the quotes)
Press Enter

In the resulting Services window scroll down to Print Spooler.
Right-click on the Print Spooler then click Start.

CANON PIXMA MX310: printer not responding.


If you go to Start, Printers and Faxes, if it says "Offline", right-click the printer and choose "Use Printer Online." If it says Ready, you should be good to go.

If however there is a problem yet, double-click the Printer there and see if any jobs are in the print queue. You can remove them all buy Right-Clicking and choosing "Cancel All Documents" then try printing a test page. Right-click the printer, go to properties and click "Print Test Page."

If you still have problems, follow up on your question.

Printing in black only on HPC4180


Click on Start> Settings/Control Panel> Printers and faxes> Right click on the default printer icon and left click on Properties> under properties you will see Printing references> there you see a option to use black cartridges only select it and apply and ok.
And try to print.
If not whenever you ptint any document you will see the printer where you can make selection of printers, even there you can right click on the printer and choose to print only in black.

Good Luck

Printing Backwards like a mirror image


You need to change the printer properties.

You can do this a few ways:

  • Click File , Print , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click File , Print , Setup , then click the Properties button.
  • Click Print , Properties , then click Printer Assistant .
  • Click the Taskbar Printer icon.
  • Right-click the applicable 3740 icon in the Printers folder, then click the Printer Preferences button.


Click on the "Basics" tab.

The 3rd option under "orientation" will say "mirror image".

Make sure this is un-checked.

Printing PDF files


I had this problem after I had fixed a problem printing from Quicken. I was able to print from Quicken by changing the print option in Windows -- mine was set to "Spool documents" and I changed it to "Print directly from printer" -- the advice I was given was to change it from whatever it was set at to the other option. For printing a PDF file, I changed it back to "Spool documents" and it allowed me to print the PDF file. Try this and see if it works for you -- click the Windows Start button and select Settings, then Printers and Faxes. Right click on the selected printer and select Properties. In the properties window look for a setting to print directly to printer or spool documents -- mine was under the Advanced option. Try the option not currently selected -- in my case, I changed it back to Spool documents with Begin printing immediately -- and then try to print a PDF file. It looks like I will have to toggle back and forth when I am printing from Quicken and when I am printing a PDF file. Hope this works for you.

Printing takes a very long time


In this case you can bypass the spooler by the following steps:

1. Right click the printer icon & left click the printer properties

2. Click the Advenced tab in the printer properties.

3. Select the option PRINT DIRECTLY TO THE PRINTER & UNCHECK THE OPTION SPOOL THE DOCUMENT.

4. Click apply and ok.

5. Try printing.

Cannot print with wirelessly networked printer


hi,

if printing from 2 other computer works fine, will i think its not an issue of IP address which changes somehow. but anyways, try to check if you still have other printer drivers under "PRINTERS" (see control panel). it should say HP Photosmart c6100 series. If you also have there a printer icon that says HP Photosmart c6100 series Copy1, try using it (right click on that icon and choose Set as Default Printer). If you only have HP Photosmart c6100 series under PRINTERS, try to right click, then choose properties. When Properties box is open, click on PORTS tab. then click on configure ports below. Try to type in the IP address of the printer under "Printer Name or Host name or IP address". make sure that you already printed network configuration page to get the exact ip address of the printer, Dont know how to print? do this.

PRINTING NETWORK CONFIGURATION PAGE
1. press setup, then scroll down and look for Network.
2. press okay on network, it will give you the first option "VIew network settings".
3. press okay on it, and it will give you the first option "Print network configuration page."
4. choose that and press okay. it will print the network config page. from this document, you will be able to see the IP address of the printer.

Please let me know if the issue is still not resolve so that i can go ahead and give you another possible solution.

Thank you so much.
