Hi there!

that actually depends on the brand of printer you have, if its an hp, yes you must have its software installed, some of them are automatically installed when you plug in the printer thru usb (plug and play). otherwise, you have to install its software from its cd, there you'll be able to see the printer's menu. =)

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.

Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now
If that does not work then follow the next step.

Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

What is a 5200 error


Hi there
Some times this works, and also gave the print heads a good clean.

There nothing wrong with the printer it seems that the power needs to be reseted, so do it and try it again, just take out the usb, the power from the wall outlet and the usb in the printer itself.

All the best Pineworks

Hi there,

Try to do a deep cleaning on the printer head. You can find this on the maintenance tools together with your printer driver you installed. It just seems the your printer heads was clogged or it was to many stains of ink that make this problem.

Hope this helps

Canon mp210 problems print spooler error


Hi wolst, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Is there away of getting around the paper orientation when I duplex.


This cant be right, if you print on one side, then it is the same as when it prints the first page of a duplex print.

Paper should be face down, head to front for both, make sure you are using duplex driver for your printer and duplex option is ticked. (4250DuplexTwotrayNetwork)\

make sure trays on machine are identified with correct papertype (tray 2 plain and tray 3 letterhead or vice versa)

printer I beleive has setting too enable duplex in print menu.

tray one in manual feeder on these.

When I set these up sometimes I install the print driver twice, ones set to use letterhead and the other plain, so customer can just choose which ever one at print time.

Usally it is set up that you go to driver and select tray or windows decides depending on what doc type is set on what you are printing.

So you need to check settings on printer paper handling and printer menu, you also need to check driver on pc, if on a network you may need to have admin rights to change driver config on server if your system requires it. But you need to check drive has coorect tray/paper type and options too

You also need to check doc type settings on individual document being printed

I have 1000's of customers, running HP (including 4250dtn and this has never been a issue raised.)

Ignore manual, stick letter head in tray 2/3 face down front and print single sided, then use same tray and do it duplex, it will do as the first one did then turn it over and print other side.

I think most customers don't duplex on letterhead, they use that as cover then duplex on plain, but I cant see it not working if you did, otherwise I would of come across it buy now, this machines format has been around for ages and they are great workhourse printers once noisy swing plate gear fault is fixed (common 4250 fault)
