When i try to print something the documents appear in my print queue then are deleted before they even begin to print, my printer was working fine until yesterday and now this
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.
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 appreciate any tips/suggestions you might have. Thanks!

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.
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.
This should be an easy one, but I've been banging my head against it for a week. I'm hoping I've just been looking at it to closely and someone can take a look from a different perspective, smack me on the back of head, call me an idiot, and point to the obvious solution.
I'm trying to fix a home network. It consists of one desktop computer, two laptops, and a printer. The desktop is attached to the router by a cable, and has the printer, which is shared, and the laptops are wireless. Everybody is running Windows XP Pro, and this is Lexmark Z45 inkjet.
The problem is with printing. It worked until about a week ago, but now when the laptops send a job to the printer, it just sticks in the queue with the status of printing. The desktop can print, so it doesn’t seem to be the printer. The laptops can see the printer, they can connect to the printer, they can send jobs into the queue, but then they just sit there.
I’ve reinstalled the printer on the desktop and the laptops, I’ve downloaded new drivers, I’ve restarted the services, I’ve attached to the share using the computer name as well as just its IP address, I’ve made administrator accounts on the desktop using the same username and password as the laptops use, I’ve made a separate printer account on the desktop and connected using that, and they’re in the same workgroup.
I’m working on the assumption that has something to do with share permissions, so if anyone has any suggestions I ... Read more
Which services did you stop and restart?
I'm sorry if this has been covered somewhere, I'm not very good at searches...
I press "Print" & the document appears in the queue window for as long as it takes for "deleting" to also appear then it disappears. I've tried all the fixes I can find on the net, completely removed all traces of HP printer stuff & reinstall the basic stuff to no avail.
I'm a very basic PC user...
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!!
hi my name is Sam i have had a printer brought me from parents all time i have had it has never printed. ink miss prints and bad quality i have read reviews which sound very positive but why is mine really bad
Did it ever print ok? Have you tried cleaning the print heads - there should be feature in the printer properties or Kodak monitor program to let you do this. Clogged heads are most common cause of bad quality printing. If it doesn't improve after several cleans, then best throw it away - printers are cheap, repairs are not.3 more replies
I have a HP officejet v45, which has had new hp cartridges installed recently. Alignment page printed and aligned. Colours on tis page where as normal. After this I could only print about 30% of a page going across the page. Tried printing test page which again only printed about 30% of normal. Have uninstalled printed removed drivers and software via ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS in Control Panel.
Have used both the installation disc and a downloaded set of drivers and software from the HP website to reinastall the drivers to no avail.

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.
I am accessing an HP Laserjet 4650 via network and everything works great except for when I try to print out 2 or more copies of a 36-page PowerPoint presentation. I have both checked and unchecked the Collate box when I'm about to print, but neither seems to actually collate the printouts; it always prints out pages like 1, 1, 2, 2, 3... etc.
Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.
I tried the same in other programs, and no matter which program I print from, it neglects to collate the pages, whether or not I select Collate or not.

Hello jviper777 and Welcome to TechSupport.
Please do the following:
You have SpySweeper installed. While this is a great program, we need to temporarily disable (not uninstall) the program because it might stop our fix.
Right click on the SpySweeper icon in your System Tray (near the clock).
From the pop up menu, left click on Shields, this will open the program at the same time.
Click the "Internet Explorer" tab and uncheck the following:IE Favorites Shield
IE Security Shield
Broswer Helper Object (BHO) Shield
IE Hijack Shield
Click the "Windows System Shields" and uncheck the following:Memory Shield
Spy Installation Shield
Click the "Startup Programs" tab and uncheck the Startup Items Shield
After all of the fixes are complete it is very important that you enable SpySweeper again.
Maybe Norton is preventing you from changing your homepage?
Open your Norton Internet Security, click on options at the top, then click Norton Anti-Virus. Look on the left side with the 3 columns. Under the Internet section at the bottom is Home Page protection. uncheck the box at the top, and change your homepage.

I have two printers, one of which is an Epson Artisan 1430 (very new, installed with current drivers and current firmware) and one of which is a Canon iP6000D (very old, with old, unsupported drivers), and both of them frequently will not actually print anything unless I turn the printer off and back on first. The system thinks the doc went to the printer, but it's landing in the bitbucket instead. This behavior began several months ago, and was not present for at least the first several months after the 10 upgrade.
In both cases, when the symptom crops up, the system and printers may have been on continuously with no sleep, power-off or other reboot (that I know about) for as little as 4 hours since the last doc printed, or as much as several days. If the system has rebooted, the problem becomes *slightly* more likely but not certain. When it happens, usually both printers are impacted. (I have not consistently tested it, but so far it appears that when one needs a power-off/on cycle, the other will as well.) When the problem is present, a document sent to the printer pops up in the queue list barely long enough to read the job description, and then it's *gone*; the system apparently thinks it went to the printer successfully, as no error message is presented.
So far, I have found precisely zero mention of anything relevant to this problem anywhere. I've got the hyperannoying (and incredibly TJFS) "automatic printer mismanagement" feature turned off, and... Read more
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!
are you using windows workgroup printing? How are you connecting to the printer?
I'm a bit stuck & am also probably posting this in the wrong forum too. (i wasn't sure which one to use in the end!).
My printer is Epson Stylus CX3600 & it stopped printing. It goes through all the motions but won't print any documents, web pages, note pads etc. It does however print out the printers own test page & also will do run a self clean & print off a nozzle check. But it simply will not print any documents. I've not changed any settings, the cartridges have ink in them (but I've used up nearly the whole cartridges to clean it, as sometimes those didn't print well either). Epson website suggests I buy new cartridges, the printers troubleshooter couldn't come up with anything, all cables are attached etc., so what on earth do I do?
It goes through all the motions of printing off documents, but nothing. I have now done what I've always been told not to do, I lifted all the cartridges out & put them back in, I figured since it's wasted almost four entire cartridges on not printing I had nothing left to lose lol It was a worth a try but has made no difference whatsoever.
Given the price of the four new cartridges Epsom suggest I try I could buy a new printer for that. My last Epsom printer was great, lasted years, this one is about 14 months old. And becoming extremely irritating. There don't appear to be any driver updates available & on slow dialup I'm not wishing to download a huge driv... Read more
have you tried completely uninstalling it and then reinstalling it? Also, how do you know Life is a 'he'? Mother Nature and all.
I just bought a new printer because my old one will not work properly anymore. How do I clean away any documents that might still be in the old printer?
What brand and model is the printer?
Many printers, especially inkjets, don't have any memory at all - they rely on the operating system's print spooler.
The printers that do will have flash memory or a hard drive. The printer would be very old, very large, and very expensive to have a hard drive.
You can clear flash memory by unplugging the power cord and leaving it unplugged for at least 5 minutes or so. You might press the power button too.
If you suspect the printer may have a hard drive you would need to open it up and look for one. This is fine if you are disposing of it anyway.
My mother has an Epson Stylus printer (inkjet). All of a sudden it will not print spreadsheets or forms. It will, however, print e-mails. I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer thinking that might solve the problem - but it still won't print those documents. She is running Windows ME.
Any suggestions as to why this just started happening? Oh by the way it has new ink cartridges that are seated correctly.

I have a WPSM54G, that is the print server for my HP PSC 1315. It has become slow to print documents, and sometimes never finishes printing them. Mostly it does so on 2 or more page documents. This is sometimes true even on the copy function. Is there something wrong with the hardware? Do I need to replace one or both of those components? Or is it some software issue I can fix?
Tried disabling printer pool and enabling it again, gone into windows32/spool/printing setting permissions for my user account that has admin permissions but given it full permissions for that folder.
Tried logging in as admin to remove them but I get access denied each time in the window bottom.
The port is blank for each document in the queue.
I usually don't have issues clearing documents from the menu but this time I have.
I let my sister use the pc and it was something she did that caused this but I don't know what. She won't remember either.
So how do I get rid of these documents? Resetting the pool service didn't reset the queue so what will?
did you try this?

My brand new HP printer works great, but I can't print any internet documents through Internet Explorer, It WILL work only through Google's CHROME. Otherwise I always get an error message. My computer is only one year old. I have stored hundreds of favorites and is organized under dozens of categories, and I need to continue using them. All of my previous printers had no problem. I hate Chrome, it states that it is "streamlined." It sure is. I have gone through several forums (HP and other forums) and other people have the same problem. I'm using IE Windows 7, HP laptop, and I'm stuck with 64 bit (somebody through a forum said there is a solution, but not 64). Please help! I don't want to return it. One person had to delete his printer driver, so it would work. I'm no expert, and I am hoping there is an easier solution. Thanks!
What is the error message?
As a test,
Open Internet Explorer.
Click Tools > Internet Options > Security tab.
Close IE and restart it.
I purchased a Canon MG3250 unit about nine months ago, and it prints and copies beautifully. But recently I wanted to scan a document, never having used the Scan facility previously. When I pressed the Scan button, I received an error code which indicated that "The machine is not connected with the computer". This particular unit is wireless, and there is no USB cable employed. I am not too well up on this sort of problem, but if the machine is reported not to be connected, how am I able to print Word documents, etc? And can anyone suggest how I can arrange to scan items?

Hi, I have Windows Vista on a Compaq Presario. My printer is a Brother MFC-250C. About two weeks ago my computer became infected with a trojan, and I did a system restore and had my McAfee scan and remove the virus. Since then, though, the printer icon for pending documents in the system tray started to make its own documents to print (that's the only way I can think to say it) and I would just keep cancelling them. I have no idea what the documents are because my printer won't print since it's out of yellow ink (even though it has plenty of black ink, but that's another annoying problem.)
So, it's been a couple of days since I cancelled the documents, but I went in to clear them today and had over 7,000 documents pending. I cleared those out and three minutes later had 5 pending. I just unistalled the software for my printer since I don't plan on using it anymore due to my disdain for it, but I'm worried that maybe the trojan I had is doing this, and could my computer still be infected, or something else. Also, I have ran multiple deep scans since McAfee said it got rid of the trojan, and it keeps coming out clean, and the documents pending problem is the only one I have, but it's just very annoying and I would like it to stop. Thanks to anyone that can help!

I can't print. A Microsoft Word doc sent to the printer doesn't print or even show in the print queue. ("0 documents pending") I've cleaned out the queue, Using services.msc, I've stopped and started the spooler. Windows troubleshooting doesn't do anything. Another thread suggested stopping User Account Control and then printing. It worked but very slowly. The doc showed in the queue. I started that back up again and still can't print. Another suggested PrintFlush. No luck there either.
The printer works fine when wife's laptop connected directly with usb.
I'd appreciate any suggestions. My printer is a HP Officejet Pro 8620. It shows as default printer. It has been working fine until a week ago.
Ok, so I have an HP Deskjet 1000 printer. And I'm trying to print a Word document from my other computer, but it's not working. I checked the 'See what's printing' for that printer on the computer where I wanted to print from, and it shows a bunch of documents in queue. I tried to cancel or restart them, but nothing happens. I just get 'Error processing command'. I've already checked the C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS, but there's nothing in it. I've already removed the printer and re-inserted it and it downloaded the drivers again. That all went well, but I still can't print from either computer (I have two). On the one computer where the printer is, if I try to print something, nothing happens, no documents in its queue. But from the other computer, it just keeps adding more documents to the queue and I can't do anything. I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium on both of them.More replies

I have an Epson SX200 Series printer and since upgrading to Windows 10 I occasionally get a strange set of symptoms:-
If I load a *.doc file I can print it OK. However, if I double click on a jpeg file and open it on the desktop and then select print......
I get the "We couldn't reach this printer" error.
Similarly, but slightly differently, if I "right click" on a jpeg file icon and select print, the printing process starts (a whirring noise) but then just feeds a sheet through and ejects it without printing anything.
By navigating to "Devices and Printers" I can confirm that the Epson has been selected as being the default printer. If I right click on it and select Printer Properties and then select the "General" tab and click on Print Test Page, it prints that OK.
I have tried uninstalling the software and removing the device and then reinstalling and making it the default printer without any success.

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.

I have searched to find an answer to this problem of faded pictures when printed from windows photo gallery. I have seen a few others having the same problem, but no solutions. I am hoping that someone now can help.
I can print pictures from other software on my computer, from the internet, etc, with great photo quality. When I print from Windows photo gallery they are very light and faded looking. I have made sure the adjustments are for my printer.
It seems that most of the people experiencing this problem had canon printers. Does anyone have a solution to this?
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"

It is working in user account Guest. printer and its driver is okay(updated). whats wrong with my windows 7 photo viewer? please help me
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.
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.

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?
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?

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.
I'm trying to print images/pictures using windows photo viewer and I get this error "Your pictures can't be printed because this error occurred".... It doesn't tell me which error.. simply just says that in the dialog box. THe dialog box comes out like 4 times with the same message and I have to click OK.
I've already tried googling it and the only fix I can find is replacing photowiz and I already did but it has fixed. I've also installed Photo Gallery and it stil lgives me the same error when I try to print and picture. I've also reinstalled all my printer drivers...

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'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

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
Wild guess .. Windows 7 software update for the printer ??
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.

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.
I've spent the last four hours trying to solve this/use info that's similar to my problem to no avail. I feel I'm so close I can smell the answer is near!
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.

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?

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.
The HP 4500 Envy all-in-one printer is new, replacing a defunct Canon Pixma. I received an electronic 1099 form, and printed it from my Foxit Reader program. To my dismay, the printed form was obscured by black bars in 4 places. These do not show in the print preview, and after experimenting for some time, I can find no setting that accounts for the problem. I went online and tried reprinting the 1009 form from last year. The same problem occurred, but my hard copy in last year's records ? printed from Foxit but using the old Canon ? did not have the offending black bars. So far this is the only pdf with which I have a printing problem, but the fact that it occurs with the same form for two different years is puzzling and annoying. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated!
Considerable time online with HP support which included remote access to my computer was unable to resolve this issue. The tech seemed to believe that it was related to the site hosting the 1099, even though the same form had printed without problem from my previous printer. If the problem develops on any other form/pdf, I will have to explore this further. For now, however, printing the screen capture of the pdf will suffice.1 more replies

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.
I have scanned a document to pdf and opened it with Adobe Pro 7.0. I chose the option to make the form fillable using Designer. I am able to fill in the form, but when I print it out, the form is not as crisp as the orginal document that was scanned. Are there settings that can be tweaked? If so, I can't find them. Before the document is pulled into Designer, it prints fine. It is degraded when it is pulled into the designer program.
I have a cannon mp210 all in one printer,scanner. When placing actual photos into the machine to be scanned then printed they come out perfectly fine but when I try to print pictures already imported onto my computer they come out very faint/light.

I beleive this is a issue to do with the colour settings installed on windows 7 as our pictures print out fine when the printer is connected to our lap top. If anyone could help me with changing the colour settings that would be great. Thank you
Have you made adjustments to the paper type and print quality?
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.

Is there a setting for this? I have not found one in the Microsoft website for Windows 7.

I have these consistent, straight, faded lines on the paper I print on when they come out of my HP Photosmart Inkjet printer. (Like as if there's a roller inside the printer which isn't calibrated, and doesn't put equal pressure on the paper). Has anyone had this problem, or know what I'm on about?
The printer is refurbished, second-hand off eBay but I don't think this has anything to do with it. I remember using a relative's printer and seeing the same lines in the past.
What gets me is that the inks are brand new, and not near empty...
