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.

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

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 HP Deskjet 720c (yes, I know it's old). All of a sudden it
stopped printing anything in black. I put in a new cartridge and
cleaned them but still no black. Color prints fine.
I'd appreciate any help I can get with this.

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.

My Canon i560 has suddenly stopped printing black.
I've looked on the internet, and quite a few people seem to have had
this happen, and the only suggestion is "change the black ink
cartridge" - which is what anyone with any intelligence would do anyway!
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
proves that there is no fault with the blac...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:

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?

Don't know what's going on here. Printer worked normally a week or 2 ago
when I last used it. But now it will only print black--no colors. I've
uninstalled/reinstalled it. Updated driver to latest. Cleaned print head
by removing it from printer and also from Maintenance tab. Any more ideas?

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.
...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

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 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:

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
