Go to Start, Settings, Control panel, printers and faxes is your printer there? is there a checkmark? no, then right click and set as default, put your mouse over it does it say Ready? no, then change cable.

 

send test page, it should print, if not the USB or Parrallel input of your printer has a problem.

Error message from printer properties : Can not print test page. This operation can not be completed. Take note that printer self-test is working and from printing option cleaning cartrige work perfectly....


You need first to do the following:

Check first a different usb cable ( be the case).

Check that the printer is the default printer or you are not printing to a different printer installed in windows

Do driver setup procedure.

Disconnect printer from usb.

Go to 'installed printers' and remove the printer from windows (right click and delete). If you have documents in printer cue you may need to purge documents in cue.

Restart computer (printer disconnected).

Re-install drivers from disk (printer disconnected).

Only connect printer to usb when required by printer install software or after installing software.

If the above did not work the printer can be faulty, in this case usually it shows some dignostic message, like flashing red light etc.

Check also that is not a windows problem, by installing in on a different computer (get a laptop) and printing a test page.

Hi, The power cord is connected. The green light inicates that the printer is on. Pressing the button at the green light and the printer will print a page. However when we try to send print jobs from out...


If the printer is printing a test page (by pressing the button on the printer) it means printer is fine. There are only two things that could be having any issues. 1. The printer drivers and 2. the USB Cable. So, I suggest that uninstall the printer and reinstall the printer drivers (It should print the Test Page after driver installation). I have come accross such issues with USB printer and replacing the USB cable has always fixed the problem.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

Printer will not print anything except test page and wont delete


Possibly, the print spooler needs to be restarted. In Windows, one of the ways to do this is in the Command Prompt window. (Start > Accessories > Command Prompt, right click on the command and choose Run as Administrator in Vista or Win7).
Type "net stop spooler" <enter> without the quotes. At the next prompt, type "net start spooler" <enter> again without the quotes. After the last command finishes, restart the computer. Check that the queue is empty and retry printing.

I hope this helps.
