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 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?

So I installed new ubuntu in dual boot with old ubuntu.

Hung. Turned off power.
Now the ethernet card is disabled on boot and I cannot get to network.
Even if I ifconfig the card. Also, shutdown hangs like hibernate did.
I have no clue how to fix this.
Fortunately, old ubuntu still comes up and gets to network or I wouldn't

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?
...Laser Printer Won't Print
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'm pretty sure that the cartridge is empty e...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...Printer won't print landscape
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.
Is it possible to get this configuration to support landscape
printi...Printer just won't print
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
with lpr /etc/hosts or echo "Hello World" | lpr -PCan300. No error
message, no nothing.
lpq (ou lpstat) yields:

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.
...LPT1 to USB Printer Won't print
I have a shiny new HP LJ 1020 USB printer attached to an XP workstation.
The printer is shared, and my trusty old Clipper program's batch file
attaches the printer to lpt1:
net use lpt1 \\x\hplaserj /persistent:yes
Everything looks good, the program prints to lpt1, no errors. The
print job file shows up in the printer's queue, but... it doesn't print.
Not only that, but it won't delete and it won't let any other print jobs
through... the only way I can get it to delete is to power cycle the

We have a runtime solution that several users are having success with. This
morning, a user called to say that their printer was printing blank pages.
We ran through the usual culprits...

Printer name is correct
Pages to print is correct
Ink Color in properties is correct
Still, the very important reports come out blank in their laser printer. Our
solution appears to send the job to the printer, it fires up and puts out
blank pages. Some other reports print but not the critical ones. We have
tested, from the same file set and can print okay here at the offi...EPSON CX4600 printer won't print
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.
I'm wondering if the monitoring software is...Printer won't print new data!

My mate has a HP DeskJet printer. I sent him a few photos as did someone
else. He got them all printed out but when he tried to print out a document
from Word the printer kept printing the photos. Does anyone have any idea
what the problem would be?
Many thanks for any replies
