My printer doesn't want to respond

I've been trying to print out an illustrator file. I make sure the page and printer setup look fine. The page size and everything are the same. I press print and it'll act like it's going through, but then all it will say is "job stopped." It doesn't do anything else. Everytime I try to print. I've done an alignment check...and it'll print for that. My ink and everything are fine. I dont' know what the problem is.

This is an illustrator/spooling problem. Reinstall the printer following the correct Epson procedure - Epson is very fussy here. Come off line/Disable A/V software -blah blah

When I try to print a page from the web, it prints what looks like code. It will not print the actual page that is front of me on the web. However, if print from Word Perfect, it is fine.

It's not your printer problem. The web page size is different from paper size. For these reson when you select whole web page, the web page divide more sector and at these time your printer print one of them or more.
Here is a software that help you to print the web pagehttp://www.printpunk.com/downloads.htm
Or,
There are some web site to print web page.
Jast go to the web, paste expected web address and try to print.
Or
If you are wondering why you can't just click the print command and get the web page or other internet page you're looking at to print out properly, you're not alone. Too often pages get cut off at the margin so the ends of lines are missing or pictures are cut off, or blanks appear where words or images should be. This is pretty frustrating because you can see the words right there on the screen; they're there, but when you print them out they're gone.
Never fear-- we a have a few how to tips and tricks for you to get those internet pages to print out nice, neat and complete.
First Click on Print Preview
Before you print out a page, go to your browser menu (usually the file menu) and click on print preview. This will bring up images of the web pages as they will appear on a print out. If they look good, all you should have to do is click the print command, usually also found in the browser menu file window, and they will print out as shown. Note, however, that once in a great while the print preview will not be accurate, and the print out will not match the preview. But don't tear your hair out, just make use of the tips that follow.
Look for the Printer Friendly Link
Some pages will have a "printer friendly" or "printable version" link or the like. Click on this link and you will get a version of the web page or pages that is optimized for print out. Once you have brought up this printer friendly version, just click on your print command found in your internet browser window. You might still have some problems if you are printing on a black and white printer, which we will discuss later, but otherwise you should get a faithful print out.
Also Look for the Pdf File Link
If the page you've called up comes up as a pdf file, you should have no problem printing it. If it is the usual html file, it may also have a link that will take you to a pdf file version of the same pages. Look for this pdf file link and click on it to bring up the pdf file. To read this pdf file, you will need a copy of adobe acrobat, which you can download for free by clicking on this adobe acrobat link. Remember that once you're in a pdf file, you should click on the print command in the pdf file menu, not on the print command found in your internet browser window. Clicking on the browser print command may cause all kinds of problems, depending on how your computer is configured.

Print in Landscape Instead of Portrait
If the print preview shows pages cut off on the margin, and you don't have a access to printer friendly or pdf versions, you can print the pages out in landscape instead of portrait format. If you don't know already, landscape prints left to right across the longest dimension of the page (as in a landscape painting) and portrait prints out the normal way (as in a portrait painting). When you print in landscape, you are pretty much guaranteed that nothing will get cut off at the margins. In most browsers, you go to the file menu, click on 'page setup', and in the page setup window click check the landscape box before you do your print out.
Black and White Printer Problems
Some black and white printers do not convert all the colors to black or gray causing some elements of pages not to print out at all. You get blanks spaces instead of words or picture. I have a black and white printer that does not print out blue. This is really aggravating when printing out text that contains a lot of those blue underlined links. You are reading a sentence and suddenly there are missing words.
There are a couple of solutions here. The obvious one is to print out the pages on a color printer or a different black and white printer that does not have this problem. Another solution is to cut and paste the web page into another program such as a word processing program. In many cases you can just then print out the pages and they will print fine. In other cases you will have to use the software program (that you've just pasted the page into) to change the problem color portions to black and white, and then print out the pages.
Problems Photocopying Web Page Print Outs
Sometimes a page prints out fine on a color printer, but you have problems copying color portions on a black and white photocopier. A lot of photocopiers don't copy yellow well. This may be intentional, as it allows you to get good copies of things written on yellow legal pads, and to eliminate yellow highlighter marks from pages you have marked up. However if the yellow is content you want to keep, it just gets lost. Try another photocopier; they don't all do this. Alternatively, print out on a black and white printer before you photocopy.
When All Else Fails
If you still can't print out successfully, you can try another web browser, or you can email the webmaster or other contact for that website and ask for a fix, copy of their catalog or whatever ot

I have an epson stylus TX110 and it was printing fine today, but then as is sent a job from adobe it prepared to print (made usual noises) but then didnt take any paper and just went quiet. I've tried...

Try purging your temp files. If it's a usb connection try a different usb port. Since it can print from scan and do a test nozzle print then it's not getting data from the pc to the printer. If a different port doesn't work either, and if purging your temp files doesn't work try it on a different computer if possible. You may need to reinstall the driver for it.

oh and make sure you don't end up with one of those 'oh duh' moments :) ... check both ends of the cable to make sure it didn't become loose or unplugged :)

Im trying to print a document in word thats about 200 pages and i just want to print only 4 of them and whn i print it says it prints in the box but nothing comes out the printer but when i try another...

Hi,
Alrite now, firstly, since you need only 4 pages of the 200pg document, go to File > Print > Select page range (e.g. 1-4, 51-54, etc)
Then print and make sure you have pages loaded in tray 1.

You can also have papers in tray 2. If MS Word does not respond, then change the drivers to UPD (http://www.hp.com/go/upd), the system may have legacy drivers or An earlier version of firmware.
Rgds,
Nikhil

I'm trying to print 11x17 from Illustrator and every time it would only print half of the 11x17. WHY? any help please?

May be you forgot the Page Setup. If it is: open, copy all (ctrl+A then ctrl+C), File|New, set page to 11x17, paste and re-position.
May be Print Setup is incorrectly configured. Check it by activate the Show Page Tilling option on the menu.

Printing one line on every other page

I really would need to see a print file to know what is going on.

Set the printer driver to "Print to File", when prompted, name the file "line". The driver will append a .prn to the name.

The resulting file: "line.prn" can then be analysed using any Hex Editor if it is a PCL file or A Postscript error analyser if the job is in Postscript.

Also, fyi - I do not believe you have a simple margin error. But just to make sure, under page setup, make sure that you have the correct page size selected in the driver and the same on the printer.

MP600 with Mac OS X - no borderless printing option?

I had the same question. I found the answer at Canon's site but I can't link directly to the page so here's how I found the solution...
1. Go to the Canon Support site. 2. In the "Please enter your question field" type: How do I Print edge to edge? 3. Hit the "Search" button. 4. Click the #1 (top) search result "How do I Print edge to edge?" 5. Click the #1 (top) solution: "Use Borderless Printing (Mac OS X) MP600 6. Follow the directions.
It seems the main thing you need to do is go to the "Page Setup" dialog. Then make sure you've chosen the MP600 in the "Format for:" popup menu. Finally, in the "Paper Size:" popup, select "A4" then "A4 (borderless). It's a hierarchical menu.
FWIW I still haven't gotten a "perfect" borderless print. Seems you gotta get the paper in there exactly straight...

HP PRINTER

function addess protection fault errors when I try to print file and go through older version of Corel Draw Print setup menu. error says "Application Properties sheet pages may not work properly". Upon execution of print file, CP1518 prints a couple lines of gibirish on top of multiple pages. I have to cancel print job manually and CP1518 needs to be "cancel print job" several times before the printing of gibirish stops. I can print just fine from Adobe Illustrator, so I am thinking that is something within Corel Draw, perhaps I need a new driver so that it works with the CP1518.

Any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.
