Printer won't print, messages won't delete in WindowsXP Pro
I'm running Windows XP Pro with a Lexmark Z22 printer. Often when I try to
print, the printing notification widow pops up. As usual, I hear "Printing
started," but nothing happens while the seconds are ticking away on the
clock. If I try to cancel the job, then check the printing queue, the job
is still there, marked "Deleting." The only way to get it to print is to
restart, then it works (until the next time). The only way to delete the
unsuccessful print job is to go into task manager under Processes and try to
guess which process to delete. This works, when I g...Epson printer won't print
A friend of mine with an Epson USB printer a couple years old running under
Windows 98 is having a problem not being able to print. She says the
printer indicates no paper is present when there is ample paper. When the
printer is turned off and then back on it usually prints. Is there a fairly
easy solution for this problem?

I have noticed several posts saying that their Epson CX4600 printer won't
print after changing the printer cartridges. I'm having the same problems.
I've tried cleaning and unplugging the printer for a time, but it still
doesn't work. It started when I changed the black cartridge. I couldn't get
any black to come out. Eventually the colored cartridges needed to be
changed and now I get a blank page when printing. The monitor shows that I
used half of my black cartridge, but I don't see where it could have gone.

Fellow Mac users:
After using the program and printer for about 9 months, iPhoto 2.0
will not print to my Epson Stylus Photo 925. Here's what I've done.

including MS Word and Epson's Film Factory, they say that the problem
is not with their printer.

My parents have an Epson CX4600 (all in one unit with
scanner/copier/printer). They recently changed the Black (T0441)
cartridge. The status monitor reports the other cartridges are empty. I
know for a fact they aren't. When I shake the yellow, magenta and cyan
carts, they have plenty of ink. I tried the status print and head
cleaning operations. However I can't get those functions to work
because the ink light remains lit no matter what. Is there another
cleaning procedure for the ink nozzles or heads that can be performed
so that my parents don't have to spend $...Epson Stylus Color 900 - took out a full color cartridge to test in another printer
I downloaded and installed sscserve.exe from http://ssclg.com/epsone.shtml but I can't get
that program to work or I still can't get the printer to print - not sure which (but there
is NO ink printing from the printer now).
Anyone use that app on this printer successfully?
OR is there another app that will work?
OR a hardware fix?

I've owned my Minolta QMS 1200w for five year and the last time I
changed the cartridge was four years ago.
Today I tried to print a document and keep getting the error message
"This document failed to print".
I've checked the parallel cable connections and power supply, tried
printing from the command prompt without success. I've uninstalled the
printer and reinstalled using the "Add Printer" again without success.
I've taken the cartridge out of the printer and gently shaken it from
side to side.

I have an HP photosmart 7550 and I just changed the black ink cartridge and
printed a calibration page and it looked fine. I went to print a Word
document and the print head was moving like it is printing but the page came
out blank. I changed cartridges and it happened again, so I don't think
it's the cartridge (unless I happened to have 2 bad carts, but what is the
chance of that?). The HP toolbox says the ink level is full.

I configured my printer with APSFILTER. It usually works very well,
but this time I tried to install CUPS before and it might be why I've
had problems ever since.
When I look at the printer settings in KDE, everything seems fine.
When I try to print a document, I receive a message saying that data
is sent to the printer, but nothing happens thereafter. I don't even

At work, we have an HP clolor laserjet 4600. I had a document with a
border. When I printed it, the document apparently was not straight,
as the margin to the top of the border was slanted. Does it just about
every time, although the slant differs from time to time. Is there
some calibration I can do?
This is a common problem with laser printers. As the paper feed rollers
wear, paper can slip and slide as it is being pulled through the
printer resulting in skewiff borders. You will need to replace the
paper feed rollers.

I have an Epson printer. When I changed out the black cartridge this time
it wouldn't print. After many hours of frustration - trying a different new
cartridge, printing in colors, cleaning printing heads repeatedly,

discovered this morning that it may not be the printer. I installed a

I have an HP 1300 laserjet printer. I just connected it
to a Linksys PSUS4 print server. In order to get it to
work, I had to change it from a CUPS printer to a networked
Unix printer using printtool:
Queue type: Networked UNIX (LPS)
Now it does not print landscape fro OpenOffice, or anywhere
for that matter. I've tried changing the driver, as well as
other options using printtool under Fedora Core 4. I also
tried using OO's spadmin but that had no affect either.

I have an i560 printer. It has suddenly stopped printing black.
I have the service manual, but it doesn't give any circuit diagrams.
Can anyone help?
I looked on the internet, and a number of people have had this problem,
but most of the answers tell them to replace the ink cartridge - as if
that was not the first thing anyone intelligent would do!
I have played around with it, and I find that if I plug it into my
laptop it prints a Word text document perfectly - so the black cartidge
and printhead must be O.K.

Trouble is because there is plenty of ink, the printer won't allow me

My friend has a minimac (non-Intel) running 10.4.0 and an Epson sc740
USB printer. While this printer isn't the state of the art, we can get
generic ink cartridges for it for about $3, which makes it attractive.
Anyway, out of the blue, when she tried to print, the printer gets tied
up. And doesn't. There is a red stop sign and exclamation point on the
Stylus Color 740 window. Sometimes she gets a dialogue box saying that
the queue is on hold and we hit the "continue" button, but no hard copy.
The hold icon is grayed out and also with the exclamation point.

Sorry to point out the obvious, but HP produce zillions of different types
of printers... just saying what printer it is, and into which port you are
attaching it may help enormously.
