I have a number of pre-printed forms with many blank spaces to be filled in. Rather than completing them all by hand, I would like to scan them into some software, like MS Word, then fill them in on the computer and then print them. I have Windows 7 Ultimate and an Epson Photo R200 printer. I have been unable to find a way to do this and would appreciate anyone's help/instructions as to how it is done. Thanks, wilemar

I am a teacher in Tennessee and I need to find a software that will enable me to edit and change a scanned document. I have some old tests and worksheets that I inherited from the teacher that had my room before me. I would like to make some minor changes to the documents without having to retype the entire set of documents. (Things like change the date and the teacher name on the heading, etc...)
Is there a software out there that will allow me to scan a document in and then alter it? These are not copyrighted materials, so that is not an issue.
Preferably, I would like a freeware or shareware or trial version of something to make sure I can navigate it before I shell out a chunk of cash to purchase something.
As a teacher, it is important to me that my materials look professionally done, so I would prefer to edit them on a computer rather than use white out and pen.
thank you so much

I doubt that I can post this question here but I assume it'll be removed if not.
I have an HP printer, 2540, wireless printer. Works fine.
I started to print a pdf file. Because it was a large file I choose the 'booklet' option, which prints 4 pages on one side, then, when everything of the even numbers (I think, not sure) has printed, you will get a message on the pc telling you how to replace the already printed pages in the printer so it can print on the backsides.
When I saw the first batch I decided I didn't like it. So when the message with instructions on how to replace the already printed paper, I went in the printer's menu, highlighted the name of the document and did 'cancel'. In this printer menu it now said it was 'deleting' the document. But it didn't. I waited about half an hour. I turned the printer off and back on. I closed the document. But still the printer menu said 'deleting'.
I opened the document up again, changed the settings for the printer (as in one sided, normal size) and accidentally hit 'print'. I then noticed that - in the printer menu - the 'new' document showed up above the one that still said it was deleting. But it still didn't print. I went in the print menu again and highlighted the new document and did 'cancel' and it did cancel it.
But the old document is still sitting there, 'deleting'. I can not get past that. Any suggestions wo... Read more
There's a way to force these to delete, if you don't mind a little typing. You need to open a command prompt by running cmd.exe. If you're unsure of how to do that, tell me which operating system you're using and I can walk you through that. This should open up a black window, and you need to type in the following commands sequentially, hitting the Enter key after each command.
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\* /q /f /s
net start spooler
The first command stops the printing service, allowing you to carry out the second command, which deletes any jobs in the queue. The last command re-starts the printing service, and you can try running a test print. Once that's all done, you can just close the black window.

Hi, one of my clients is using the Epson ex 330 dot matrix printer on a windows xp sp 2 machine. Now this printer stopped working on this machine since the 24 pin port on the motherboard got spoilt. So I tried to connect this printer to this machine using a USB to parallel port converter. Now the thing is that the printer is added but when I try to give a test page print or any other print the print spooler shows 1 doument printing. But within 3 seconds it disappears and prints nothing with no error message. Another thing is that this printer used to run on the Epson LX 800 driver since there is no EX 300 driver is the default drivers list. And now I have added it on the same i.e LX 800 driver. But I don't think this should be any sort of problem. Expert help is appreciated. Thanks!!
When I use File > Print Preview, it always displays the correct preview; that is, the outermost window which contains the print div. Printing from the Print Preview works as it should. However, when I use File > Print, it seems to print whatever window has focus, not the entire page (outermost window). Therefore my print div doesn't get printed and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen. Why doesn't the print out from File > Print match what is shown in the print preview?

I have a scanned doc that I need to fill out. How do I do this?
Hi, You need to scan again using a proper OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. Many HP middle and high end printers have this software but not on many normal low end printers. Depending on what is your printer, you may have to buy an OCR software - thereare some freeware around: http://free-ocr-to-word.en.softonic.com/ http://www.free-ocr.com/ Regards.1 more replies
I want to scan a document, save it and then edit that document by adding info. It is an application form. How do I do it. I am using a modern scanner, XP home,SP3 and Microsoft Home and Student 2010.
I have tried but am unable to do it. Hoping someone can help.
Hello and welcome to the forum!
When you scan a document you basically take a picture of it, pretty much just like a photocopy.
If you want to edit the document you need OCR software (Optical Character Recognition)
Whats the make, model of the scanner so that we can check to see if the manufacturer has OCR software available.
I need to scan some documents that can be sent by e-mail then printed. I can not seem to get the document to to read properly in word I get tens of pages with weird symbles. I am running office 2001 sp1, my scanner is a Cannon CanoScan FB 620U. I could really use some help. Thanks in advance.
You might try ABBYY Scan to Office -or- Fine Reader Pro for your OCR
I don't know if these try n buys are fully functional.
Just scan your document at a high res image - then let ABBYY read it.
When I scan a document on my Canon Scangear Toolbox CS and try to email it I get a drop down window stating: This file does not have a program associated withit for for performing this action. Create an association in the Folders Option control panel. What does this mean and how do I do it. Thanks
I have a Lexmark X125 all in one printer, scanner, fax and copier. I scanned a document which I wanted to edit and was unable to do that. It scanned as a .jpg file; then I attempted to scan it as a txt file but that didn't work either.
Any suggestions, or is this something I am unable to do?
You will need to use OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. Most scanners come with software which includes at least a limited version of OCR.
Be forewarned...OCR does its best to figure out what each character is during the scan but it's never perfect. Even the high-dollar OCR stuff makes some mistakes.
OCR also tends to fail miserably with heavily formatted documents...tables, forms, lines, boxes, etc....and with that sort of page, it's often faster just to recreate it in Word than to spend the time fixing the errors in the scanned version.
Finally, the better the original, the better your chances of getting a decent document to work with. Faint letters, smudges from copier toner, stains and even colored paper will add to the software's confusion during the scan.
When Im protecting a document in Word 2003 and allow exceptions, the exceptions have a grey box as a placeholder. This is printing out as faint grey lines on the printed version. Is there anyway to change the colour of the placeholder (it looks like a field) - or get rid of it entirely?
Hi LoloPerth, welcome to TSG.
If the exceptions use the same shading that field codes do, it might work to turn off the field code shading. You can go to Tools/Options and change the dropdown box under Field Shading to Never. Let us know if that has any effect.
1/ i have a document that i have scanned with paintshop pro into .jpg; then i print it to adobe distiller as a pdf and then convert it to .rtf via bcl drake ( i know it's a long winded process, but i dont know a more efficient way to get text from a hard copy); anyway, i have tried it once or twice in the past and it worked but now in the .rtf format, i can't seem to highlight the text so that i can cut and paste the raw text.
Anyone know a better way?
2/also, on a brochure, there are diff. pictures, and i want to extract one of the pictures and use it as logo; what's the easiest way to grab just that picture from that page?
Scanning text as text rather than an image requires OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software. Most scanner software includes some version of OCR.
If you scan the document in using OCR, you might have an easier time of it when converting to pdf and I know you'll be able to copy text.
Unfortunately, OCR is limited in what it can do. It has to look at the document being scanned and basically guess what character the mark on the page represents. The more limited (i.e., cheaper) the OCR software, the worse it will be at guessing. The poorer the quality of the original (faded type, photocopier smudges, colored paper, etc.) the more often it will guess wrong. The more heavily formatted the document (forms, tables, borders, lines), the more mistakes the software will make.
After you've scanned using OCR, just open it in a word processing program and clean up any mistakes.
As far as getting one image from a page, just scan the page in as an image, open it in some graphic/picture editing software (even MS Paint should be able to do this), use the selection tool to select the picture and either copy and paste it into a new image or use the "crop" or "edit" feature of the software you use to take out everything but what you have selected. Then save it.
Took a bit to configure my HP Printer to my laptop. (First Chromebook) Then I had to configure the Scan function. I can scan a document and save to Google Drive with no problem. I can open the document and print. I can email the document thru Drive. The recepients can open it up. They can scroll through it. They are NOT able to print it!! I have sent scanned documents to 3 other emails and all are having the same issue. All other items sent through email seem to print fine. It is just the ones that I have scanned. Since I sell real estate, this is not acceptable. Scanning, sending and printing are a huge part of my business. I cannot work without that function. Someone please help! I do not want to go back to a Windows product Best regards,
This is certainly an odd one. I'm not sure how the Chromebook would have any influence over this once you can pull a document store on Google Drive and print it.
I'm making an assumption that you're probably saving these as PDFs and using Adobe to open them in most instances? If you have someone who could try, have them open up the Print, select Advanced and then check the "Print as image" option and see if that allows them to print.
Hope this helps,Cory

MS Office Document Imaging allows scanning directly to DI. The image transfers to Word OK but without the text boxes.

all I get is the text that was added but not the rest of the form.

Hi... Just installed Thunderbird, latest version. When scanning a multi-page document to email with the Brother h/w device, I get multiple emails, one for each scanned page. I checked the settings for scanning and the only items that lists multi-page are TIF files, which isn't going to be adequate...PDF's are required. Outlook Express manages all the attachments into one email message, so it's not the printer/scanner device setting. How can I correct this?
Another computer in the office using the same model brother printer/scanner and the same version of Thunderbird works fine - multi-page documents scan fine to one email.
Well, after doing nothing particularly different.. reboot, and change to TIFF...and back to PDF, importing scan as attachment is working fine... so I guess solved. Although I have no answer as to why it wasn't working correctly in the first place.
I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.
My question is as follows:
Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.
Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, “The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?”
Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.
could't you just add a field in the record for printed?
Then if printeed true, show warning, else show printable form.

Scanning a physical document for digital storage requires scanning of the document, which is considerably quicker if two sides are scanned together.
Is there some freeware program (if possible running on Windows) to deskew and separate the two pages automatically for the whole created file (pdf, djvu, tiff...), creating an ordered document with a single scanned page per page (or at least a file with the odd pages and a file with the even pages). It is somehow more complicated than using a script of Autohotkey, since not all scanned pages are exactly located at the same position, and therefore the parameters of a page to be splitted do not necessarily apply to all other pages.
Thanks in advance for the information.
When saving a Word 2007 document as a webpage (htm, html), an extra folder is automatically created besides the hmtl document itself. This folder contains background information like pictures, wallpaper etc. Is there a way to prevent that folder from being created in the first place? I've got Word 2000 on another computer, and when I save my word documents as html files over there, that extra folder is not generated. The only time that folder is created in 2000 is if my documents contain pictures, wallpaper etc. In Word 2007, it is created all the time, even though my documents are just plain text.
Managed to find the solution, it was very simple after all. One has to save the document as a filtered webpage and click "yes" when a box pops up warning you that you will use certain featuers which are specific to Office2007, such as the background. Then the document will save without that extra folder and files.
I have two questions regarding documents created in Word 2007...
1) Can links be created within a Word document? For example, can I click on and item my table of contents and have the document jump to that particular section of the document?
2) Also, is there a way to make sections of the document hidden until the user clicks a specific word or graphic in the document?
I'd like to specify a particular instruction and include a "Show example" link that would make a detailed example appear for those who needed the extra help.
If you created table of contents through References - Table of Contents, you can hold Ctrl and click on the item in that table, word will take you there. This feature is standard.
Also, to navigate inside document you can use bookmark option.
Insert bookmarks. Word 2010 Bookmarks
Then insert Hyperlink - in the window select second tab "Place in This Document" and choose your bookmark.
As for hiding parts of document, I do not think that is possible.
I am running XP and Word 2000 and Nortons. Word will crash if you leave the document open for a while (there is no specific time frame) and then select close (icon). The error - Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. The details are: AppName: winword.exe
This has pretty much happened since I got this laptop. I have reformatted and reinstalled everything (due to another problem) and still have the same problem with word. I have used the same CD on other computers to install word and they do not have the same problem.
I use a variety of templates and plain documents in my work and can not pin point it to one template.
If you leave Word open with a document (no matter what size) and come back to it later this is when the problem happens. I started to get around it my saving first then closing, but this no longer works. The save completes and then I select Close and this is when it happens - you get the dreaded pause and then you hear the whirl of the computer and then you get the Microsoft Word for Windows has encountered a problem and needs to close. Firstly I could put up with it but is now just a nusiance.
The other day whilst in the throws of fixing another unrelated problem I came across a strange and annoying Word Document problem.
When I bought this word document up it present a very unusual icon. It was grayed out and part of the title contained a ~$ then the name of the document.
When I tried to open it, the word document only opened up to the gray page just before it should turn white displaying the text, and there it froze.
Nothing worked after that! The freeze was so bad that the only way to close the window was to turn the computer off at the tower.
After rebooting I tried it again 2 more times with the same problem freeze occurring in the Word document.
Today I again found another document that caused the same problem, this time the icon for that document was normal but right beside this icon was another malformed grayed out ~$(name) icon.
When I tried to open either of the 2 icons I got the same freezing up problem, just as before.
I tried a previously suggested step in that I opened "Word" and from there navigated to where the bad files were located.
In turn I only hi-lighted each, and at the bottom of that window clicked on the arrow for the drop down box.
I was advised that one of the presented options was to repair the file. No such option was present.
So there you have it. Any advice on this problem please?
Just to advise that I am going to mark this topic as Solved......to a fashion so to speak.
I may resurrect it at a later stage if the problem re-presents it's self.
In a nut shell. I spent a lot of time today searching sites and performing tests including searches on my computer program.
I ascertained that all the aforementioned "defective " Word documents originated in the same folder. After performing several search functions with the criteria as ~$.doc no other such files were found on my computer, other that the already mentioned.
All tests suggested would not repair the said documents.
I have now deleted the offenders and I will monitor the situation. If I run into problems again I will re-post.

We're trying to streamline our RFQ-to-Quote process, which currently utilizes a combination of digital forms and hand-written forms passed among several departments. My boss asked me to modify the RFQ form to save him some typing (because he has to retype all the information in the final Quote), and I--not understanding the complexity of the process--very stupidly told him that it could be done fairly simply using form fields and bookmarks. He's been kind enough to grant me a lot of leniency because for him anything would be better than the current situation, so as long as I can improve on what we use now, he'll be happy.
I thought about creating form templates for each of the departments, then as the original RFQ circulated from one department to the next subsequent forms would be appended to it to create a rolling document. I'm not too happy with the that idea; there's all sorts of room for user error. I thought about creating a single document template containing every department's form, but a) I don't want any single department to be able to modify information gathered during another department's process, and b) certain departments must generate a variable number of copies of their form.
I told my boss the best way to accomplish a secure and low-maintenance RFQ-to-Quote would be to create a stand-alone Quote Generator application, but we both agree the effort is not condusive to the timeframe by whic... Read more

This is something that has been bugging me for a while now, and I've been unable to solve this problem. Perhaps someone out there can provide some guidance.
Sometimes, I'm unable to print things (such as online coupons) because I'm told that my printer is set to "Keep Printed Documents." I've tried disabling this setting via the Advanced tab under the printer's properties. However, when I do this, click Apply then OK, and close the tab, the setting automatically reverts back to "Keep Printed Documents". Does anyone know why this is happening? It's sort of frustrating to not be able to set the printer settings the way you choose.

I'm new here!
First I would like to say I'm a TBI survivor and I'm a male and 42 years old .
I was purchased an emachine computer with a Lexmark lasar printer,
Whenever I go to print something, be it a web site article or a personal document that was created using Microsoft Works Word Processor. Whatever is being printed my name appears at the VERY top and the city and state printed at the bottom.
I know little about computers so I'm trying to get an answer why this is being printed.
The only thing that I can come up with is MY NAME, CITY and STATE was somehow entered on this computer's Hard drive and is prints it because it's been entered by someone at the store before iyt was brought home and set up for me.
If there is someway that I can delete this info. being printed, PLESE tell me what to do EXACTLY!
That's very strange, it sounds like a 'Header and Footer' has been set up with that info and is in your normal.dot template. (If Works uses such a template, I know Word does).
Try doing a Find (or Search depending on your version of Windows) for normal.dot and rename any found to normal.old. Then test the printing again. If there is a problem you change the names back again.
The problem I am having is that when I go to print tax return forms from the IRS site or New York Tax Dept site, the form prints "short", that is, the last four or five lines of each page do not print.
You cannot save the data in these forms, they will only save as a blank form. Your only option is to print it.
However, although Adobe tells how to cure this problem ( by clicking File-Print and going down the menu which comes up to "printer scaling", then chosing "print to fit page", this only works if there is a
FILE menu on the left hand side of the page.
In these tax sites, the forms do not have a tool bar above allowing you to chose a FILE menu.
You can right click the mouse and chose PRINT, however it will print a cut off page.
SOOOOOOO ..how do I either:
1. Get a standard Tool Bar to appear on top of the form, on these web site pages, or
2. use some other device or method to print these documents to fit the page.
If any of you are about to suggest right clicking on the printer icon PRINTERS, in the control panel, forget it....my printer does not bring up anything about "Print Scaling".
Hopefully, some geek out there will read this and solve my problem. Thank you. 44 Guy
Every computerized tax form that I have seen...is available at the website of the sponsoring governmental agency...and reflects a printed version option which has resulted in everything being printed properly.
I'm not sure where Adobe figures into tax preparation.
If you are using a 3d-party app to do taxes...then the problem resides with the support for that application, IMO.
Im using access 2010 and there is a print of a report like a certificate whenever needed. My office is requesting me to provide a report of all certificate printed including the date and to whom .

Is there any way to do this without forcing the user to enter the yes/no. field.

I have found the solution to this problem, you need to untick the checkbox for "borderless printing", this is how to do it:
When you click print, go to Options > Printer Properties
Click on the "Page Setup" tab, then Untick the box that says "Borderless Printing"

From Windows Answers:
I believe it is a problem with the "photowiz.dll" file in system32. It is version 6.x.xxxx.xxxx. I found an older version of this file, had to change the attributes and permissions of the file to allow it to be changed. I renamed it with an "dlx" extension and then copied a version 5.1 photowiz.dll to system32 and the print wizard works again! The site I got the file from is: http://www.dlldump.com/download-dll-files_new.php/dllfiles/P/photowiz.dll/5.1.2600.2180/download.html
Try Googling your problem first. Hope that helps
I am unable to print pictures completely. I print them from Picasa on HP photosmart C4250. When I try to print, although the preview is correct, the printed result is not. Part of a picture will come out, or the image starts at the end of the paper and is therefore incomplete. Until now, everything worked properly.
Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve paper...it'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)
The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.
Web pages designed for printing do exist, and it works well in those (few) cases.
Cutting and pasting into a word processor is sometimes the only workable solution.
Don't print much multi page output, so am NOT sure when this problem began.
Originally, the pages on my HP DJ855C were printed as expected: page-1 first, then page-2, etc; this resulted with page-1 being on the bottom of the stack. Depending on the application being used, there was often a Print-Order option available for Back-to-Front printing so that the last page would be printed first and then page-1 would be printed last and be on the top in the stacker.
NOW, things seem to have reversed:
If I do NOT ask for the Back-to-Front, then I seem to get it anyway (i.e., page-1 last and on the top). but if I want the original order (i.e., page-1 first and on the bottom) then I must use the Back-to-Front option.
It seems as though the default has become Back-to-Front and then selecting the option for Back-to-Front re-reverses the order and the result is Front-to-Back.
Possibly this reversal happened when I went to Win/XP; possibly it happened with the installation of some piece of software.
Q. Has anyone else had this exxperience?
Please tell me where I might change some parameter to make the option of Front-to-Back actually print the page-1 first like it did originally?
Any advice apprecaited.
Go into your printers and faxes options off of your start menu.
Select your printer, right click the mouse and click on printing preferences.
On the features tab at the bottom there is a option for start printing from last page. If there is a check mark in the box next to it, click there with the mouse and uncheck it and then click on apply and ok and you should be all set after that?
Whenever I print out an email from someone, the resulting document prints my first and last name (Outook Express) in the top left corner. I would like to orevent this but have searched in the Options and cannot find how it got there or how to permanently remove it. Can someone please tell me. Thank you.
It is using your user name for the header.
You can change this in the account settings.
Not sure if you can turn this off.
I have 3 print queues that are retaining the printed jobs in the queue and every now and again the damn thing prints all the job again. I have checked that the keep printed jobs button is NOT checked/selected, but the queue acts ilke it is selected to keep printed jobs. I have 125 printer queues and only 3 act like this and they are set up identical to the others. I have reconfigured this twice on all 3 and they still act like they are set to keep printed jobs in the queue.
Anyone seen this and know of a solution, on the Microsoft site I am seeing posts but not a single reply about how to either run a job to clear them out a couple times a day or fix this so they act as configured. To NOT keep printed jobs in the queue.
Any help as always is much appreciated.
The race to solution is on, let's see who can figure this one out first.

Well not sure if this is the right area for this but not really sure what the problem is.
When I boot my PC during the bootup dos stage I hear my PC making noises, it still boots up Windows 7 ok but as soon as I open something I get continious R type accross my screen, If I hit the caps lock it changes from R to r.
Thought it was my keyboard having the R locked down so tried to fix it, no luck. Changed keyboards with my spare one no luck. Disconnect all keyboards no luck.
So where is this R coming from, its impossible to us my PC at the moment as soon as you click somewhere (word, exel, Google etc) an R/r appears.
Any ideas where to start?

Anything I print off the web or email says "Network + Job Functions" at the top of the page and the date at the bottom. Sure, I've been to websites pertaining to the job functions but I never saved anything with that name. How can it be printing at the top of any page?
If I print a document that I made and saved from Wordpad, not anything from the net, it prints fine with no header. I looked at the printer settings dialog box and it shows nothing with this title.
If you are using IE, at the top of the page click on file and page setup and see what you have under header and footer. You probably need to change those.

Thank u for ur support on my previous issue. I have an another issue, whenever I give print from an adobe reader file it shows the error message "Document could not be printed" . I have HP LaserJet printer model F2180. Kindly help on this issue.
If your problem is that Adobe Reader is unable to print, but other applications can print, I suggest that you uninstall Adobe Reader and then download and install it again.
I have a problem with my Word documents. When I try to print them, the right edge is cut off. I thought it was my computer or my printer, so I took it to another computer, and the same thing happened.
The problem is in the files themselves. How do I change the files so they function as they used to? This has been the case with more than 20 files, which were made at different times.
My computer used to warn that the form I was using was too wide, and ask did I want to go ahead. I would select yes, it would print, and would look just fine. Now it does not ask that question.
Incidentally, another problem is that my files no longer end with .doc, but now say .rtf. All of my Word files changed in several ways at once.

Other than using View>Text Size, is there anything I can do that may cause the print to be darker?

Problem: Green Cast on Images being printed
Editor - Elements Version 7 & Windows default viewer
Colour Management:- every variation tried
My Neighbour has a Epsom R285 http://www.epson.co.uk/Store/Printers-and-All-in-Ones/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R285 printer, his had it a few years.
I have recently changed his PC to a Windows 7 desktop and installed all the drivers. The Printer worked fine, but yesterday he was getting a green colour cast on all images
I checked the head alignment, nozzle set-up and cleaned the heads
Checked with windows default viewer, and printing from that application - same problem
Checked all the Colour Management, ICC, settings etc - tried without Management, sRGB, adobe 1998 etc, checked colour management on printer and elements
The image looks fine on the screen , I have emailed a sample image and on my setup it prints fine
The next step was to try the printer on my laptop
any other ideas - this is usually a colour management issue and i have fixed quite quickly in the past on other systems - so I suspect I'm missing something obvious now

It likely just a matter of the resolution of the email derived image vs the resolution of the printer. Does it happen with every image or just the lower resolution ones from the emails?

G'day steviejay, sounds like you have an intelligent printer that is censoring your output!
That is a worry, I haven't seen that problem previously.
You might try having a look in your control panel, system, devices or device manager, with a bit of luck when you scroll down through all your devices you will find a USB printer, (assuming yours is usb) if you open that item you should see something like "this devise is working properly" which is a good start for troubleshooting.
There should be no yellow exclamation marks on this item.
Are you quite sure your print queue in the print manager is being actually deleted?
What kind of printer is it?
The assumption is that it is a PC using a windows variant.
I have had my problem for some time and had a work around which is no longer applicable hence I get a white screen where message should be so I don't know what is being said.
My problem started about 6 or 8 months ago on Outlook Express. At that time I was using dial up and changed over to Earthlink.net with their e mail program Total Access. My problem immediately disappeared. One month ago I switched over to High Speed and the person doing the custom install saw I used Outlook Express so he reenergized (non computer word) the program. The custom installer saw my INBOX with about 30+ messages that go back a long way. EACH ONE LINE description was complete, meaning To: xxx,
From: YYY, Subject: ZZZ, and anything else that showns on the ONE LINE.
When I double click on one of the inbox messages I FIND MY PROBLEM! Everything that showed before is shown again, but now greyed out since it has to do with basics. HOWEVER, the text area (where the message should be) is 100% pure white. I have double clicked all 30+ messages and get the same thing,...a pure white screen.
I thought it might have something to do with installing SP-2 on my XP Home Edition BUT SP-2 was installed about 6 months ago and my e mail problem started about 8 months ago.
That is my problem! Can anyone offer suggestions?
Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!
So if I understand correctly, you can send and receive emails ok.
The problem lies in that the messages you receive are blank inside?
If you run your mouse over the inside of the message, does anything show up in the highlighted/selected area?
Perhaps your fonts have a white color?
Are you able to create a new message and see the fonts inside?
Let us know.
Hi, when I print anything from the web (Amazon receipt for example) the 'Print preview' and actual hard copt print appear as source code (similar to lots of DOS type commands etc) and very small print size. Only happens in Internet Explorer 7.0 -tried using Firfox and that appears okay- any suggestions -anyone? (thanks in anticipation)
open IE, click tools > internet options > advanced tab

This will put everything back to default options and all is good!
I'm running Windows 8.1 64 bit. I have a PNG file that exceeds the size of the page, 8.5 x 11, when printed. When I view the picture online it appears that it should fit the paper okay. I resized the file by %, pixels, and measurements (inches). I also changed the paper size to 8 x 10. Can somebody tell me what I am doing wrong.
Open a Word document of the desired size and import it there. You can also draw a box on the Word document and put it into there - it will fit. If you don't have Word, try Paint.3 more replies

I suspect this might be a fairly common problem. Whenever I print there also seems to be a block of about 5 fine lines printed over the text for about ever new line of text. Now I recently bought a new (high capacity) cartridge which costs a fortune, so I'm not too keen to buy another if it is the printer (about 6 years old) which is the problem.

I have a form I use for work that I manually have to fill in 50 times a day with mostly the same information. This is definitely a job for a computer!
Ideally, I would like to open the spreadsheet and have a button that says 'Print' and it will print what I need - 50 forms with the right information.
So far I have done the following:
Created a custom page size (16cm x 14.7cm)
Scanned an original to use as a background so I can line up the information
Adjusted the Excel boxes to print the info in the right place.
Now I need to print the following number ranges as identifiers:
1 - 22, 29-42 and 51-54
I feel I'm close with using this macro:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
[copy] = [copy] + 1
I use both Excel 2003 and 2007, depending on where I am!
I have NO experience of macros until today, so any advice is very welcome.
I bought a parallel to usb printer cable to make my HP Laserjet 4L to work on my Vista dell laptop and it worked. Then I upgraded to Win 7 64 bit. Now it won't work. It sees it, installs fine, just won't print. no errors. Can it be a "cable driver" (never heard of such a thing until I started researching this problem) if it worked with Vista? It's a no-name cable, so won't likely have a driver that I can find.
Is there anything I can do but replace the cable?

I have included info that I thought may be useful.
Run the following:
Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.
Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

Greetings, I just purchased an Epson 4490 photo scanner and realized there is no printed user manual- just a very basic bunch of directions. They have an in depth guide on the Epson website but it is not an easy one to download and copy, and I find it very difficult to look online whenever I have a question about using this scanner.
I am wondering if there is anyplace I can get the in-depth printed user guide for this scanner. Printed guides are so much easier for some of us to use. If I had known there was no user guide I would never have purchased this scanner.I am hoping that someone other than Epson might print them,since Epson says they have no printed user guide. Thank you!!
I doubt you would find a printed version available if epson doesn't have it.
The online manuals are usually in PDF format and you can save them
to your computer so you don't have to download it every time.
Just download and open it,then click file/save as and save it to your desktop.
Of course,after that,if you want to waste the ink,you can always print it out yourself.
When I print I am getting a blank page between each printed page. Even if my document is one page it prints a blank page after it. I can also print a selected page, as in "print page 2" but it still prints a blank after it. The blank page does not show up on the preview.
I have a HP Deskjet D1300 and am running Vista Home using Word 2007. Is it a printer problem or a Word 2007 problem? Any suggestions?

Three days ago when I tried to print from the web and then WORD there was no installed printer. I checked and the printer was still installed but when printing a document the print screen said their was no printer installed. I checked and the print spooler was not working. So I downloaded the Microsoft tool MicrosoftFixit.Printing.Run.exe. I ran it and presto the printer worked but only once and when I went to print again, again the print box showed that there was no printer installed. So I have to run the Microsoft.Fixit.printing.run.exe tool every time I want to print a page then restart the computer. A royal pain and time waster.
Something is turning the spooler off and not allowing individual programs to see the installed printer and therefore reports that there is no installed printer.
2nd issue. this is a new laptop (ACER) and there is no LED light to show "Caps Lock". I did find a setting that flashes the screen and makes an audible beep. However, my wife has the exact same computer and hers has a 2" x 2" box appear each time she puts cap Lock on. Which is way less distracting than audible beeps and flashing screens. Is there a setting for this? I have not found one in the Microsoft website for Windows 7.

Hi All, Please Help !!!!!
I set the printer to Fast Mode. After few month used, now every day morning I print.
The first few pages printed are not clear (especially black color), then the following pages are printed fine. Why ??????
I'm guessing that the ink jet ports are drying up over night and it takes a couple of pages being printed before the ink is flowing correctly. I think using fast (draft) mode send less ink to the heads or less ink is available because you are printing faster.
