Is the printer connected via USB or a printer cable to the LPT1 port? Make sure the Port setting in the properties of the printer are set to the correct port. If the printer is plugged into the USB port but the properties say it is on the LPT1 port. the cpmputer will think it is sending something to the printer but the printer doesnt know it.

How to print a regular document from Microsoft Word, Excel.


Instead of pressing the start button to print, you need to press the small ON/OFF button. The start button works to copy/scan. But to print, you will need to turn the printer on first. Once the printer is on, the computer should recognize it fine and allow you to print from your applications.

HP C6180 will only print a partial document


Hi Rbluhm,

I need somre more information regarding this issue. Like are you able to print fine from other applications without any issue, connectivity and foremost thing operating system you are using...

However, as a work around, I would suggest to select the "Print directly to the printer" option in the properties of Hp Photosmart C6100 series icon.

That is:
1. Go to printer folder.
2. Right click on the printer icon.
3. Click on the Advance tab
4. Select "Print directly to the printer" option.
5. Click apply and click ok.

Then just close all the windows opened on your computer and then re-open the Microsoft Word document and try printing....


I am sure this will resolve the issue. However, if the issue persist, do reply me soonnnnnnnnnnn.......

With Regards.
Mike.....

Printer stoped printinting


Hello there,

I think the correct printer is not selected on your computer. All you need to do is to go to Start > ControlPanel > Printers & Faxes > and check if you see multiple printers over there. If you do see multiple entries then right click on your lexmark printer and then select "Set as default printer" Once this is done, you can try printing a document to see if that works! In case if it still fails to print, you can try selecting the other printers listed in the printer & faxes folder as the default one and try printing. If you are still not able to print, I would suggest you to try uninstalling the program > restart your computer and then install the software once again.

Merry Christmas

Document locked in que


Solution #1 Have you tried to power off the computer itself? The document is most likely locked in the PC not the printer. Unplug the printer's power, power down the computer, wait a minute or so then restart the computer. Once the machine has loaded check the print queue to verify the document is no longer there, if so you can plug the printer back in and the issue should be resolved.

Solution #2
From the Start menu, select Control Panel. Then follow this path:
Administrative Tools > Services > Print Spooler
Once at the Print Spooler, right click on it. Select Stop. Leave this window open. Turn off your printer.
At the open Print Spooler window, right click on the Print Spooler, and select Start.
Go to the Start menu, and select Printers & Faxes. Find the printer you are having problems with and double click on it. From the menu, select Printer, then select Cancel All Documents. The documents should clear.
Turn on your printer. You sould now be able to print.
