My mp610 no longer prints email documents, but will still print satisfactory colour pictures (Photos). Both black cartridges have been replaced with new. Could this be software or a printer fault?


this is software problem! you did not state what operating system you use this museum quality printer, as my telepathic powers somehow vane... anyway they work only in hollywood flicks... just generic advise:



open any office document and try to print - if it did not, or print garbage - but still print photos - definitely software problem, which can be exacerbated by printer connection or interface



suggesting hot water - IT PRINT PHOTOS! this meant that this is not physical printhead problem but SOFTWARE INTERFACE! pls do not listen to airheads...



now, procedure:

1. remove all cables from the printer including cable connecting to the computer

2. reconnect all cables to the printer except computer

3. try print any photo - printed? printer is ok, maybe cable - interface or computer itself...

4. while computer is on, and printer is on - connect computer to the printer via usb cable (even if you have it on wireless! disable it for the moment), did computer detected it? can you print test page? if yes and yes - you just solved the problem and computer rectified it



if not:

1. disable wireless (if present) and disconnect physical cable from computer

2. uninstall drivers pertaining to the printer

3. go to http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp610#DriversAndSoftware

and download drivers correct for your printer and operating system (remember the bit which you did not tell on the beginning?)

4. after download - start installation, when prompted, connect usb cable to the printer and the computer

5. print test page - printed correctly? solved the problem... if not, then error will be on ingress port of the printer, or cable or egress port of your computer, you cannot eliminate error on the printer but:



change the cable and change the port on the computer to that which you know is working, for example port where your mouse is connected.



if still no joy - use this printer as local for your photos and buy cheap laser with very, very cheap laser cartridges...



hope this will help you to solve your problem do not forget to vote...

The printer is not printing any document


Hi

Please check

1. Do you have a printer cable failure?

The printer will not be printing if its not connected to the computer. Check that the printer cable connecting your printer to the computer is firmly attached at both ends. Apart from this cable, there should be one more cable which is the one connecting to the wall outlet.

2. In case it still not work after checking try resetting and printing.

3. Else please change the Data Cable if it is very old one.

Printer connected but not printing


Hello,
If your printer has a network port you should be using the network adapter.
Otherwise you want to make sure you connect the printer with a USB cable to the appropriate port on the D-Link.
Once the USB cable is connected you should be able to add the printer from your computer as a shared printer.
You will not normally see any activity lights on your router for the USB connection because it does not send or receive information the same way the LAN cables will.
I do recommend a LAN cable though as it works much better with routers. If your printer does not have one I would look into getting a network printer.
Thanks,
Pat

HOW DO I USE A WIRELESS PRINTER WITH NO ROUTER. I WANT TO PRINT FROM TWO COMPUTERS, THAT BOTH USE DIAL UP INTERNET


You can attach the printer directly through USB cable to your computer and print, or you can connect the printer and your computer to the same wireless network and then print using the wireless and your connection.
Internet is not necessary, only a communication path needs to be established. For this whether its your neighbor's wifi network, your own wifi network, a usb cable connection between your pc and printer etc printing will be accomplished.

Printer is connected but does not print


Hi
Thanks for using FixYa. Please check the following things first---
· The printer cover is closed and the rear access door or optional duplexer is attached.
· The printer is connected to the power source and turned on.
· The cable connections are secure and the cartridges are correctly installed.
· The paper or other media is correctly loaded in the in tray.
Now check the printer cable connection: If the printer cable is attached to a USB hub, a printing conflict might exist. Use one of the following methods to resolve the conflict:
· Attach the printer USB cable directly to your computer.
· When printing, do not use other USB devices that are attached to the hub.
Now verify if the printer is connected to the correct USB port: If the computer is configured to use both the back and front USB ports on the printer, then you might be printing to the wrong port. The computer has two versions of the printer driver: one for the front USB port and one for the back USB port. If you are connected to the back USB port, but select the printer driver that is associated with the front USB port, the printer will not print. In the application that you are printing from, click File and then click Print. The Print dialog box opens. The Print dialog box displays two versions of the printer driver. Select the version that is associated with the port to which you are printing. The issue will be resolved.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Print jobs no longer arrive on printer


try this: make sure you do not have any pending printjobs (cancel all documents if there's one) then delete all printer icons. Reboot the computer then launch the printer server software to locate it. add that network printer & make it your default.

probability is that some of your applications are sending printjobs to the wrong queue (like the one for the USB connection).
