O.P. Hi All, I hope somebody out there can Help me. Just the Last few Days, No matter what Program I Print from , the program locks up and a White Space the size of the Print Preview, that was just there remains. If I print a Page from Paint Shop Pro with just a Full Stop (a Dot) on it no problems,....but anything Larger or to Print a Full Page then the Full GUI is white with just theProgram Header Visible and accessible, with the Mouse Pointer..... But for the Rest of the Screen (white space) the Hour Glass is there waiting for the Printing to finish. , I can go and open up another Program and do some other work , but ifgo back to the Program I'm printing from ,it's still Locked with theWhite Space still there. I have run a Virus Scan and have found nothing.
I have a Free Ram indicator, in the Tray on the bottom of the Screen, that tells me I have 1450 mbs free. out of 2GB .
If I Close the Program I am printing from , sometime it stops printing immediately. which could be ½ way through a Printing of Page. I am using : Windows Pro SP3 Dual Core 2 E4500 CPU 2 GB Ram. Epson Stylus Photo R310

Re: Programs Lock until Printing Finished
1. Click on START, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS AND FAXES (or PRINTERS AND OTHER HARDWARE). 2. Right click your printer, and select PROPERTIES. (If your printer is not listed, click on VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS first). 3. Select the ADVANCED tab. 4. Select SPOOL DOCUMENTS BEFORE PRINTING. 5. Click on APPLY (if applicable), then OK. 6. Restart your computer. 7. Try printing now.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Hi. Thanks for looking. I have a friend who had this problem just few days ago.He inspired me to write this. What do I do when somebody just gave me film a DVD rip or Xvid some Dvix video in .avi format and it just won't play on my computer? This normally happens after you returned your PC to factory settings or formatted hard drive and got fresh operation system.You can probably hear sound but no picture at all.
This means that you are missing codecs on your machine. Codecs are simply talking little programs that tell players how to read video files. There will be different codecs for different operation systems.

some printers collate pages, which means they print from the last page to the first page. so that when you pick up the pages from the finished printing tray they are in order.
if you say it stops after the first page, there are a few possible reasons for this. either you closed the application you were printing from before you finished printing (which sometimes cancels the printing job) or the computer decided it wanted to cancel the printing on its own, this can happen if the printer has sometimes an error, this error or cause could be a lag between the data transfer to the printer.
try printing without collating the pages, while keeping the application/document open.
Go to start>Printers and Faxes, right click on the printer icon and select Printing Prefferences Click on the advanced tab, turn off the duplex settings by deselecting the 2-sided printing option Click on the Print Setup tab and make sure print last page first is not selected in the check box.
first thing keep u r printer cd ready.Second uninstall your printer from add and remove programs and also disconect the printer from computer.Know re start your pc and install printer drivers with cd dont connect the printer untill it askes to connect. once setup asks u to connect connect the printer cable to your computer.Once the setup is finished then trie scanning from printer to pc. It will work.
In whacky situations like this it is always best to re-set your camera and flash settings. Somewhere on your D80 you will find two function buttons with small green dots next to them. These are the resets. Push both in at the same time until the display LCD flashes.. The camera is now reset to default settings.You will now have to re-set your FV button to the custom setting you had it at before.
Also, reset you flash by turning on the power and removing the batteries and re-install them.
Unfortunately, the brother machines I have experiences with at work have this problem a lot. My Brother representative has not been able to give me a reason why or how to fix them so I believe it is a machine wide problem.
I would unfortunately replace it with something like a HP, they tend to last longer than lots of other machines I have sold.
