I just hooked up a printer while we take our other in for repair. The printer we just hooked up is a Canon BJC-240. It is printing everything small and only on half of a page. IT's the entire document but, squeezed onto 1/2 of the page!
Any help appreciated.

I have an HP LaserJet 1020 attached to a WinXP Pro workstation via USB. I have an Intel iMac networked with the PC wirelessly. I can detect the LaserJet on the iMac just fine, and on the iMac, documents spool and even say they have printed (they show up in the "completed" section of the printer control panel).

So, the iMac thinks the document printed, but it never did. When I look at the print queue on the Windows machine, I see "Remote Downlevel Document" in it. I assume that the iMac is printing to a port instead of starting the Windows Print Spooler, and this is why it is showing up with this name.

When viewing the LaserJet's queue on WinXP, the downlevel document is "Printing," and "113k/113k" has been transferred. But the document never prints - if I try to "cancel" the document in the Windows print queue, it says "deleting" for a verrrrry long time. Documents can be printed just fine locally on the Windows workstation.

Thanks in advance!

i have hp laserjet 1005 MFP, it was working okay but suddenly while printing a number of pages, it started to erase the middle of the pages while the sides were pretty good!!!
it's still new so am pretty sure that the cartridge doesnt need to be replaced yet! and its the original cartridge by the way
i removed the cartridge and put it back and it printed again normally like 5 pages and then the old story!
the problem is that even if i take out the cartridge and put it bak in (which i have no idea how it helped b4) now it's no use!
this problem is now both while printing or photocopying!.. and when photocopying it greys the sides of the paper
so this is like really messed up! is there any help soon plz......
(well am not sure if this is the right place to post so if its not plz tell me)

A:Solved: HP Laserjet printer prints only half the page!

Actually, it's almost certainly the cartridge. If this is a new printer, you may have gotten the "starter" cartridge that doesn't have that much toner, yet another ploy to get you buying expensive consumables for the printer.

Take it out and gently rock it side to side, then back and forth, put it back in, and see if it prints a few pages again.

I have an offiejet 7310. Printed the sample page (gourd in a basket on a tablecloth). Problem is how do you know what it "should" look like? There isn't an example on the screen saying this is what is originally intended. Hard to tell what those pumpkins and squash should look like since they come in many colors and the same with a tablecloth. I tried to find that picture online but good luck with that (unless someone else can post it)

A:printer test page question

I think those test pages are intended to see if you get a full print, if the ink is smeared, are the lines clean, etc.

Even if you found the pic, the color accuracy of your monitor would effect how close of a match you got.

When I have installed printers in the past, the printer needs to be disconnected from the USB port until after the installation of the software. If you have not done this then I suggest that you uninstall the drivers and reinstall ( with USB cable disconnected )

We have a new network printer, an HP LaserJet P4515, which is on our network. We added it today, and installed it via adding a new TCP/IP port, the usual way that we install network printers. It works for three out of four users that we installed the printer with. The fourth user is not able to print the test page, it just says pending, then error- failed to print.

I have a home network with an XP system with a printer attached and shared. A Windows 7 laptop and my old XP laptop from work can print fine, but a new Windows 8 laptop won't print. Sharing from the XP system works as I can read files from the XP system on the new Win8 system. When I do an Add Printer on the Windows 8 laptop, I can see the network printer and install it and the driver so the printer shows up as installed on the Win8 system. The Print Test Page does not work nor printing from WordPad. I turned off the Firewall on the XP system in case that was the problem. I don't know what else to try.

This old printer worked wonderful. I would like to re-install it. When I send a test page to it Printer Settings reports One document in Que, Status Printing, but it doesn't print.

I have connected the printer with a parallel cable and in the printer window it said Ready Standby.

I download driver R166996 and unpacked it to C:/Program Files/Dell/Win32/PCL/English/dixblzi and clicked Open. It said Installation completed successfully.

I went to Devices and Printer, clicked on Add a Printer, selected Add a Local printer use Existing LPT1, Dell Laser Printer 3000cn PCL6; have Disk, and then I browsed to where I unpacked the driver. The installation Completed successfully.

Why can't I print a test page? I shut off the printer I ran Problem Solver. It cleared Que. I tried to print a test page again and it sent the Test page to the printer but it still didn't print.

I unplugged the printer, rebooted the system, plugged it in and tried to send a test page again. It still didn't print. How can it be that Windows 7 sees the printer, the printer reports everything is Ready and yet it doesn't print?

I believe the printer is in working order but something is wrong with the communications. Can someone help me.

Hi, I just purchased an used computer with Windows 7Home Premium x64, this is an HP Slimline s5610f. The problem that I have is with a Brother HL 2040 series printer. It gave me a really hard time to install the drivers that I downloaded from the Brother website I kept getting a "0x00000057" error and "could not find suitable driver for this printer" error. Finally I decided to take the driver folders for this printer from my wife's computer and copied them to my computer and put them in the drivers repository under System32 and was able to install the printer after that with no problems.

The problem that I have right now is that the printer won't print, even though it told me that the driver installation was successful.

1-the print button is grayed out
2-If I click "printer properties" it tells me that the drivers have not been installed and asks if I want to install them.
3-If I install the drivers at this prompt it tells me that the drivers have been successfully installed.
4-Now it lets me access the printer properties but when I click "print test page" either nothing happens or it tells me that it failed to print and access is denied
5-If i close printer properties and try to access it again it tells me that the printer drivers have not been installed.

I get the same results with the printer connected locally trough USB or on another computer through the network.

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 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.

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.

A:Printer deletes documents before they are printed

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.
Cheers, qldit.

I have a HP C4850 configured to work through the wireless. I can ping the printer and access its internal web page. Network configuration prints out no fails or errors so as far as I can tell everything is configured correctly. If I send it a print job, a small notepad document with the text "test" in it, it won't print. Eventually it just seems to forget the print job is there. However if I send the job, then print the network device configuration, the print job will print immediately after. I did this 3 times and it was consistent in its behavior.

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!!

Hello everyone

I recently installed Outlook 2010 and I have got the following strange problem and I was wondering
whether anyone else had the same problem and found a solution.

Whenever I print an Outlook email, the pages come out in reverse order (page 2 then page 1) with a blank cover page which sometimes has "Microsoft Outlook - memo style OUTLOOK.EXE" printed
on the middle of it, and a blank sheet between each page of the message.

It only happens with Outlook. Printing is normal with Word, Excel, etc.

Any suggestions, please?

If this wont help, click Edit button in the same window, and make sure all the parameters make sense and are correct (page size, etc.)

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.

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.

This just started today. It's driving me nuts. When I click on link here or other places which will open up a new window, the page opens up to fill the top half of the screen. It does NOT happen if the link opens in the same window, because the page is already full size.If I click a link in my email, whether web based mail or Windows Live Mail, the page opens half screen.Opening up IE from the icon next to the Start menu opens full size.Using the desktop icon, sometimes full size, sometimes half size. I've done this several times, didn't work: Drag the corners of the window until it completely fills the screen. Hold down the Ctrl key, and while holding it down used the mouse to click File and then Exit on the toolbar.I tried it using the Shift key.Had this problem once on my XP system, dragging the corners, File/Exit did work on that one. No changes have been made to the computer. No new programs installed. Malware and virus scans have found nothing. It doesn't do it in SeaMonkey. I went to my daughter's desktop, and it does do it when clicking the IE icon next to the Start Menu. Screenshot of how it looks:All suggestions, advice, and clues on how to resolve this annoying thing will be much appreciated.

I'm doing some thread cycling, new questions for all you nice people out there.

Whenever I open my laptop back up, and hit the power button, it takes about 60 seconds to reach the password page. Once I type in my password, my computer hangs for about 2 minutes.

I had a Vaio VGN-NW265D laptop, with a bluray drive. I've used my bluray drive a handful of times within the last 1.5 years, and I'd rather have the performance. How would I go about putting in a SSD and installing windows 7 on that? I'm somewhat new to mods, but I'm affluent with computers.

I have a Dell All in One printer Model 924, using in Windows 7. It worked fine until I changed the black ink cartridge. I used a refiiled one, which I suspect may be what is causing my problem. My problem is that it printed the test page fine, and now when I go to print anything at all in black it has the message that ink is low and do I want to use the option of using the color cartridge to print the black. I say "no" to print from the black cartridge. It just prints another test page and refuses to print the document it was supposed to do. The test page prints fine. No where in the manual does it give any information on the problem I am having. Does anyone have any idea what is going on?? I have used refilled cartridges before with no problem.

Hi all,

I am a newbie to this forum and I have looked at previous posts but it doesn't seem as though my particular problem has been answered as of yet...

Basically, I am running XP and have just installed a Netgear Wireless internet card as well as AVG Free 8.5.

All of a sudden last night I got a pop-up message out of the bottom right corner saying "Security Center Alert - You have a virus" or words to that effect... I click on it and get a IE window saying "Apache 2 Test page...powered by Centos". Then some stuff about the web domain and owner etc etc.

When I try to exit the window I get an error message saying my computer is infected with a virus and it won't let me close the window...It eventually closes itself a little while later, only to pop back up a couple minutes later. This is all accompanied by a little red X in the bottom corner of the tray...

So, I'm after some help really. I've googled around and found some references to the computer being hijacked? When I read that I turned off my router...

Can anyone help with this and tell me what I need to do??

PS - I should add, I found this website as I am having a problem with fast user switching and the mrvgina.dll (from Netgear) disabling it. I am working through fixing that too...just thought I should mention it in case it might be related??

Thank you all very very much in advance!!

When trying to print through the DOS based application the printer starts printing and then suddenly stops half way through and does not give any kind of error message.

I'm running Windows 98 with Office 2000. One of my powerpoint files appears to be demon-possessed. Most of it will print normally, one slide (which appears in modified form 4 times in the 30 total slides) prints differently each time. It contains several shapes inside shapes (pentagons inside a circle). The pentagons come out of the printer totally black! The crazy part is that of the 8 pentagons, a different combination is blacked out each time I print. Sometimes, the top two, sometimes the side three, sometimes the bottom four. It prints erratically in the handouts (six to a page) style too. Every other slide in the file, however, prints totally normally.

If it is a true Network printer ( not one that is shared out from another work station ), try opening a command prompt an see if you can ping it...

Also try, uninstalling the printer ( if you can ping it ), then go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool, and delete all the drivers/files associated to that printer ( sometimes during the uninstall these don't get deleted ), check all the folders that are in the Spool folder for the drivers/files...

1. Uninstall and reinstall the printer drive.
2. Restart printer spooler service and computer.
3. Try different user account including administrator account.
4. Turn off and then turn on the printer.
5. Try to add different printers such as HP, canon and Lexmark. All have the same problem.

I am trying to create a shortcut on the desktop for print test page.
I have tried a couple of different googled solutions and cannot find one that works...
First I tried - 
cscript C:\Windows\System32\Printing_Admin_Scripts\en-US\prnqctl.vbs -e -p "Brother PJ-622"

I tried this from both a normal and elevated command prompt - logged in user is a local admin - both resulted in 
Failed Print Test Page Win32 error code 5

I tried the same command using a -u and -w command to specify the local admin account.  This didnt work either and  
I also tried 
print /d:printer textpage.txt
just to get something to print... this didnt work..

Ok I had all this typed out and found a powershell solution that works so I am going to go ahead and post this anyways for anyone else to use.  There was alot of ways with powershell 4 using invoke but i found a simpler way with a couple lines to print
to default printer.  This works on powershell version 2.

Create PrintTestPage.ps1 in notepad and save as ps1 file...

$printer = Get-WmiObject -Query " SELECT * FROM Win32_Printer WHERE Default=$true"
$PrintTestPage = $printer.PrintTestPage()  

Edit - obviously for the shortcut I just modified the target to the path of the script.

%SystemRoot%\system32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -File C:\MDT\Powershell\PrintTestPage.ps1

I have deleted the printer, remove the print drivers, install a totally differenet printer and have the same issue. I have tried to print from differenet user profiles with the same issues. The printers work great on other computers.

This is happening to both local printers and network printers. The printers are recognized and test prints works fine.

Any ideas?

Stop and restart the print spooler service

What is the usual diagnosis or outcome when an HP C6280 AIO won't print a correct Self Test Diagnostic from control panel? It printed it one (won't print another because of multiple errors); was missing ALL data from boxes & sections of 2 pg. report - except color print test boxes (looked fine). Just printed report sections headers & data boxes.

Gone through usual printer reset steps: power reset; clearing hardware error codes via "secret menu," then unplugging & waiting 60 sec.
That clears 1 (or more) errors, but they re-appear. The errors just rotate; clear 1, another pops.

Carriage or paper jam (neither true); carriage moves easily by hand - isn't "jammed" when reports it. Hitting OK starts carriage moving again.
No paper or bits. Took lid & top cover off. No paper bits that are visible - front, back, inside paper tray area, w/o dismantling entire unit.

Ink system failure: printed perfect text, lines & color boxes on the partial self test, after that error appeared & was cleared - several times;

Pump Motor Stalled: DON'T think ink motor is stalled or not working. Printed perfect lines, headings & color boxes on the one self test (lacking data). With top cover off, can see all pump gears, belt turning normally in warm up. Pump sounds normal during printer prep.

I am printing a Microsoft Word 2007 document and the numbers are cut off at the bottom of the page. This is using an HP7100 inkjet. Part of the footer is lost as well.

When I change the printer, and print from our Canon ir2018 LASER, everything is printed in its entirety. There are no problems, and that's with me not altering the Word file whatsoever.

I am able to print an Excel spreadsheet using the HP7100 until about 1/4" of the bottom of the page. These page numbers in the Word 2007 are much higher up (physically) and should not be out of the range of the printer considering what it can do for the Excel file.

Lastly, when viewing the document in "Print Preview" in Word, if I have the HP7100 set to print, it does not show that the footer will be printed. If I change the Printer to the Canon, the footer returns. So Print Preview accurately tells me what will be printed based on which printer I select to print from.

Is this an issue in Microsoft Word? How can I print these footers and page numbers from my HP7100?

Hello, entire 7F community,

I put this problem here because it relates not just to theme files, but is also about system files and/or advanced solutions. I know that this question (or at least its other variant) has been asked before, but I didn't manage to find the solution.

The problem is:
After failed boot with incompatible firewire card (tried WinXP drivers as legacy hardware driver, etc) I removed it and just to make sure that the PC would boot I've copied whole system32 from Win7 installation disk (X:\Windows) directly to original windir (C:\windows) using "xcopy /E /H /R /Y" thus attempting to fix somehow incorrect and not included in C:\windows IEEE 1394 driver in the process. The PC booted. But now I noticed that the taskbar was in classic style with aero top edge (see here) and any explorer window looks like this (notice the edges of the window and compare it to organize/system properties/etc bar).

Steps I have taken since then (in order):Ran chkdsk /f /r
Ran sfc /scannow
Done an in-place upgrade
Set visuals to maximum quality (best appearance)
Reinstalled GPU drivers
Restarted themes and uxsms many times (aero/basic themes become grey until reboot)
Ran Fixit troubleshooters

None of those helped.

I didn't set up system backup/recovery, so this option won't help me a bit.

Purchased a new Hitachi/LG Combination burner/dvd (player) installed with a second streight cd dom drive connected in master/slave config. The dvd side of the drive using Cyberlink PowerDVD installed and plays fine. But anything else, a data disc, music, installation of Nero 6.0 (recommended for the drive)
will not work. Does the cdrw side of the drive sound bad? (the second streight cd drive works fine and performs all function it should)-

The only other event during dvd install (done first) was an intial WMA
change when first installing the dvd software, but the change took and the reinstall indicated that the change was successful. I've done this on others combination drives before without creating any issues like this, so I either did something with the WMA change or it's a bad cdrw....would anyone care to speculate??? I would appreciate it! (if this is a bad drive, I can get it repaced).

FYI...uninstalled and reinstalled both the combination as well as the streight cd drive and both continued to function as before-

Many thanks in advance for the help-

My laptop has windows 10. When i power on my laptop often these days I see this screen comes up. After few seconds It starts beeping sound. I power off the laptop, then power it on again until the laptop boots up normally. Usually in two to three chances it boots up normally. After it boots up it doesn't give any problem it functions normally, its only when I power it on 70% of the time it shows this screen. It starts from the top and runs to the bottom those lines. What might be the problem ? I am using windows 10 on inspiron 15r SE 7250 I updated chipset and bios driver few week back and also changed the thermal paste on cpu and gpu

I am not a script writer. In fact, the last time I wrote a script it was by creating a .bat file to run on an old MS-DOS 5 machine. But I sure would appreciate help with instructions on setting up a printer script for the printers on my Vista home network.

I have four PC's, 3-Inkjets and 1-Laser printer on my network. To keep the inkjet ink cartridges from drying up from non-use, I'd like to setup a routine on one of the Vista PC's to automatically issue a "Print Test Page" command to each of the inkjet printers once every week. Can this be done, and if so, how?

Thanks in advance for your assiatance...

I just formatted the hard drive and installed the OS. Downloaded the printer driver from Canon's website and installed it. I'm able to print a test page and align the printer heads, but when I try to print from any application, it comes back with this message:

"An error occurred during this operation"

I hit OK and then it closes. No print dialogue box.

Everything is fine in device manager.

Hi All,

Trying to print out a newletter (in a book form) where i want the front and last pages in colour but the rest in b&w.

All images etc through out the entire document is in colour. Just wondering if you can possibly specify which pages to print in colour and which ones in b&w from within MS Publisher 2000, 2002 or 2003.

I cant do it from the print driver thus me asking if i can do it from within the application. Any thoughts would be great. thanks in advance.

I have an annoying problem which occurs very infrequently. For some reason there are times when the scroll bar on the righthand side of my screen is at least half off the screen. How do I resize my screen so that the entire bar and the up and down arrows are back onscreen? I tried dragging, but that didn't work. I'm sure there has to be a very simple answer to this minor problem. Thank you.

That looks like you have it in Classic mode instead of Aero. Your Start button says "Start". Mine is round and does not say Start. == Right click on the desktop and then click "Personalize". Go into Themes and pick one that says "Aero". Let us know if that helps.

Ok here is my issue; i had a health computer until a few days ago, we usually play World of Warcraft, and one of my friend took a break, and he is playing on some private server just to spend some free time of his. Anyway i was playing WoW on official server, then my friend came, i logged off, changed file to join the private server (cleared cache etc. so i am sure its not a game based issue) i created a character played a few minutes then logged off to disable an addon (here it starts) when i logged in, the milisecond i saw my character my computer froze. i am using a wireless logitech keyboard and a4 tech x7 mouse, when i press the numlock the numlock led on the receiver was working(its on ps2) but the led on my mouse was off, just like i unplugged it. restarted retried to join the private server, same thing happened...and again and again and again... i changed realmlist back to original and voila, i was able to play on official wow.

That's quite possible.  Some websites automatically detect your language settings and adapt to suit.  Where is your VPN terminating?  Does the same thing happen when you visit the site without activating the VPN?

My lexmark P4350 has worked for years and now for some reason today, after installing a new black ink cartridge it now refuses to print more than one page.

If you select to print a document (of say 4 pages) it will print the first page and then automatically stop for no reason and refuses to print any further pages of the document.

I am on Windows vista and have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the printer. I use a USB to connect the printer to the computer.

Please help as I love this printer and am thoroughly fed up having to print one page at a time!!
