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...printer won't print black
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 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,
uninstalling and reinstalling driver, and communicating with Epson - I have
discovered this morning that it may not be the printer. I installed a
different printer, hp officejet 6100 all-in-one, went through all the
software installation procedures and finally attempted to print the document
from yesterday. Did not print in black ink??? I printed the sa...Ubuntu Lurid crapware: "hibernate hangs...ethernet disabled...no network...shutdown hangs...CD won't write...printer won't print"

I've got a Canon S600 inkjet printer which was working perfectly fine
until a couple of days ago in which i was rearranging my computer
station to another room. All that was done was that the printer was
disconnected and moved temporarily. Upon re-connection, I noticed
that anything I try to print in black (ie. Word document or web pages)
doesn't print. Other colors including grey print fine. I've checked
that all the ink cartridges are full, tried reinstalling/updating the
drivers etc. but nothing.

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

My Canon i560 has suddenly stopped printing black.
I've looked on the internet, and quite a few people seem to have had

It won't print black text from Impression on my RISC PC, but when I
plug the printer into my laptop with the USB it prints out "Word"
documents perfectly. I suspect this is because the RISC PC prints
documents as graphics, and it has stopped printing graphics. Anyway, it

She bought a Belkin USB Parallel Printer Adapter (part number F5U002v1).
She says the box doesn't say Vista support. Is this a problem? I don't
think it is since it is just a cable adapter.
When she tries to print, Vista saves as a XPS file and not send to the

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.

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.

easy solution for this problem?

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

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 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
recieve an error message. I can't even print from the command line

message, no nothing.

A client of mine has a small ethernet network, using 1 iMac Flat-Panel and 2

of the eMacs was bought maybe 6 months ago, and the other was bought about

I have an HP 5150 inkjet, and it really worked nicely for the first few

often anymore. It will print the black better on the first sheet after
resting for a month or so, but after that the black printing gets streaky
and sometimes goes out altogether. (There are some minor streaks in the
other colors too.) I've cleaned that black cartridge several times, both
with the printer's own function and by hand, with rubbing alcohol. It is
definitely not dried up. And I've even replaced the bla...HP Printer won't scan... augh!

Got the C5180 from a relative because it didn't work. I tried a new
black ink tank, it doesn't print anything in black. Color print looks
weak and washed out without black for shadow, and black only print
comes out almost blank, just a few tiny black dots like I have an
empty ink tank installed.
I figured something is interrupting the flow of ink from the tank to
the printer head as the tank are mounted stationary on the front. Is
there any instruction I can use to take apart the 5180 (or any 5100
series) so I can check the connections?
