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 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...
I've seen stuff like that happen on epson inkjets when the heads are slightly clogged. May want to look into that barring any other suggestions.
I think this is similar to the thread
HP 2575 Printer Paper Jam Error w/no paper jam
I was trying to print 2 sheets double sided (manually).
Side 1 printed, I reoriented the sheet, pressed OK, then the paper jammed.
I removed the jammed paper, which tore during removal
I tried to reprint the two sheets, and printed side one, then got a papre jam message before the reoriented paper was taken up!
I have tried powering off and disconnecting the printer, and now have a "permanent" paper jam message.
Can anyone tell me where the sensors are on this model? I suspect "chad" (yes, I really am old enough to know the problems chad can cause).
Unfortunately, I'm also partially sighted, so I need pretty clear instructions on where to look forthe chad.
Can anyone help please?

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.
Reading up on it, I found that this printer has an auto-duplex feature, which lead me to the question:
How damp is the paper going to be after printing duplex, especially if I print with 50% - 100% coverage?
My initial conjecture is that it wouldn't be wet or curled, as it would be counterproductive to Epson's image to provide a printer with an auto-duplex feature that would drench the paper.
After doing a little bit of research, it seems that it's largely going to depend on the ink itself. According to macworld.com, "pigment inks...are made up of tiny, encapsulated particles that sit on top of the paper, instead of being absorbed into a paper’s fibers, which is what happens with dyes." The article further goes on to state that pigment inks are primarily for the purpose of longevity. Well, I'm not particularly concerned about it's longevity but I am interested in whether it's ability to dry faster than dye ink is justifiable for an investment in pigment inks?
A little more research revealed that paper quality is also a major factor (duh). Only issue is, I've already purchased a bunch of cheap 20 lb, 96 bright white paper and don't want to purchase paper separately for this additional printer (when I mean "bunch", I mean that I possess cases of paper in the double digits). Another reason I'm hesitant to make any move towards better paper is that it seems that the higher quality paper is designed to ... Read more
I have a REALLY bad paper jam... My printer is MF4350d. The paper jam troubleshooting outlined in the manual did not help. When I opened up the toner area and the back end of the printer, I can't see see the paper at all. It looks like the paper is jammed in area that I don't know how to access to (if I can, aside from taking the whole printer apart).
Does anyone know any way to fix this problem? :/ The paper that got stuck was a label paper. I know for sure it is stuck because the paper did not come out at all. The WHOLE paper got stuck. The label paper half half label peeled off. I am assuming that the reason it might have curled up in the printer is due to the disappearance of that half label? :/
The label paper is a regular size paper with 2 labels divided evenly on the paper.
Is taking the printer apart the only way? (is that even safe/good to do on my own part?)
Please help thank you very much.

I am so hoping someone knows the answer to this very perplexing problem... I thought it was my printer so I bought a new one and I have the same problem. I print a picture of my granddaughter, who has these wonderful chubby cheeks.........until it is printed and the chubby cheeks are gone. She has slimmed right down...... lol I have been struggling with this problem for quite a while now, have asked everyone who comes within two feet of me and no ones knows how to fix this or what is even causing it. I know someone here will know. I have never had a problem that this site has not been able to fix for me. : ) Thanks, in advance.

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.
Has anyone else had the same sort of problem?
Try cleaning the print heads, this is the normal solution to this problem.
Other than using View>Text Size, is there anything I can do that may cause the print to be darker? I know that my eyes are beginning to grow weaker but perhaps someone knows a trick for me to use or an answer. The light print seems to occur on most web pages and very bad on my ISP webmail account. My signature will tell you I am using WinXP Pro and SP2. If all pages were as clear and dark as the print I am seeing while typing this thread, I would not be asking for help. As always, TIA

I recently acquired a Canon EOS Rebel T1i (500D) 15.1 mp. Previously, I had a Canon PowerShot A80 (4.0 mp).
Here's my question. Whenever I try to print a photo from my Canon i860 printer, the picture is a lot brighter than the image on screen (overexposed). I need to darken the picture significantly before printing it, in order to get a ressemblant result on paper. When I was printing a photo from my PowerShot A80, the result was almost identical to the image on screen.
Does this have anything to do with my new camera's higher resolution? Would I need to lower the resolution in order to match the printer's capacity?
This is becoming annoying and I really would like to find a solution.

Hi, I have a user on a XP pc with Office 2007. He is having problems when he is printing a graph - some of the details on the Y axis are missing and also the graph header (see example2). Looks OK in print preview and also if he prints to a PDF file (see example1). Same result when he tries otehr printers from the same pc and old files containing graphs have the same problem. If he selects the graph and prints, then it prints OK but this is not really an option when he has multiple pages with multiple graphs.
The same documents on 2 other PCs prints OK.
Any ideas on what is causing this ?

I'm running windows 7 and the printer is wired.
One trick I've used successfully in the past was to force thick paper (like a manilla folder) through the printer in order to clear the paper path.
I have an HP Deskjet 5610v All-in-one and I have lost the disk that came with the printer but I have gone and downloaded the drivers several times. I was doing this all on windows xp and made sure that I had the right driver download, I then went through the same steps with my computer that has windows 2000 and it works just fine. I need to figure out how to diagnose my problem or find out what to do to fix this situation.
I don't understand by your title what problem you're having.
The HP site doesn't list a 5610v. Are you sure of the model number?
I'm having a real nightmare with my HP PSC 1355 All-In-One!
When I turn the power on the lights on the front light up, it makes the usual clunking noises then the amber 'Check paper' light starts flashing. I have changed the paper, put paper in, taken paper out, turned paper over, sworn at paper while inserting paper but to no avail.
I have opened the cartridge access flap on the front of the printer and had a look inside to see if there is anything jammed or obviously wrong in there but it all looks normal.
Does anyone have any ideas...?
See if this helps,
It give complete instructions for paper jams. There is also a link on the page if the cartridge light is also blinking.

After a long time of inactivity, and with the help of a member of the Tech Guy forums here, I was able to re-avtivate my HP Deskjet 5550 printer. But it seems, there is one more problem to be solved: the paper is not reached by the pulling wheels inside.
I suspect a missing part here. Please have a look to the two photos showing the empty paper tray (I removed, for better visibility, the outlet tray), and the same tray filled with some paper. The papers are on the ground, but the wheels above them which should pull them into the mechanics of the printer, are not touching them. Thus my suspicion of a missing part.
Is there anyone who can assist me? It is so frustrating to had to wait six years to use this printer again (HP does not offer support nor even any response to help requests to people from Jamaica), and now to face a second problem just after the first problem of a missing cable was solved.

Printer HP PSC 1410 thinks it has a paper jam - it hasn't! It will happily print test page after test page correctly (using up expensive ink in the process) but will not print any documents sent from the laptop. I have switched the printer on/off ad nauseam; removed and replaced the back cover several times; all to no avail. Needless to say the HP website/forum is of no real help with this problem (buy a new printer is the extent of the advice!). Is there any way to clear this erroneous message and get the printer working again?

Kofax software.. Anyone use it?
I'm not able to scan using it, it comes up with the below error saying it's out of paper. If I try to print from just windows side under devices/printers then it works fine. I tried reinstalling Kofax and it fixed it, then a week later it broke again. Reinstalled Kofax, but this time the error is still coming up.
It was a Kodak issue... below is the Fix.
This is an issue we are aware of and have a code change in place.
It is simple to get around:
1) make sure no scanning apps are running (including SmartTouch)
2) make sure their scanner is off (including any flatbeds)
3) delete C:\ProgramData\kds_kodak\kds_i2000\device\suspend
4) Restart the PC
5) Connect and power on the i2600 scanner
6) Using SVT, test scan with TWAIN. If this works...

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop running Windows Vista. I have also been successfully using an HP Photosmart B209a "all in one" printer with a wireless connection. I began getting low ink messages, so installed new HP cartridges. When I try to align the new cartridges, I get a message that says the alignment failed, but I can still use the printer. However, when I try to print any document I have generated on my computer, the printer picks up the paper and goes through the machinations of printing, but when it spits out the paper, it is blank. When I print a test page, it works. When I print a page from a website, it works. It will copy a document. It simply won't print anything I generate using my word processor or spreadsheet (I use Microsoft Works).
HP's Monitor program says that the computer is ready.
I have used HP Solutions Center, but nothing it suggests has made any difference. I have checked my wireless connection and it is working, obviously, or the printer wouldn't be getting the message to print, as it surely is, since it starts, picks up the paper and goes through the whole process of printing. However, nothing comes out except a blank piece of paper.
Hope you can help.

Okay, so I have a Canon Multipass C5500 printer and I'm not sure what type of paper to buy. I'm really inexperienced in this department, and I really have no idea what I need to buy. There seem to be all sorts to choose from, which is making this relatively simple task seem a lot more daunting than it should be.
I don't need it to print out high quality photos or anything of that nature. I guess what I'm looking for is something to print out documents on, colored images but it doesn't need to perfect, and that's pretty much it. And ideally, I'd like something cheap. Can anyone help me out here?

I am unable to boot from my windows XP boot disk into re-installing windows at this point. Here is the history of how I got to this point:
I started having random reboots during computer use. Then I couldnt get into my hardware file on my computer.
So, I rebooted the system and logged into BIOS and removed my overclock, thinking this might be causing the problem. It went all down hill from there. I was unable to boot into windows and was not given safe mode options.
I reloaded windows on another hard drive and then reconnected the drive that wouldnt boot and backed up my files.
I then formatted the original HDD and tried to install windows. I got windows to install, but none of my hardware drivers would load, everything kept saying that there were files missing.
So, I decided to try and install windows on a SATA drive I had as a spare. I reinstalled the SATA drive and booted off the disk to install windows, as windows started installing, I would get a registration error. Windows XP re-install would complete, but I couldnt install my MOBO drivers or graphics, or sound card drivers.
So, I tried multiple times to format the hard drive and same problem over and over. So, I removed all components in system, leaving DVD player and Graphics card. I still could not get windows to install.
So, then I tried switching my RAM modules, removing a RAM module and changing voltage settings to Corsair specs for my RAM. Now I cant even get the computer to boot past the... Read more

I have widows 98, a Dell Latitude XPi CD laptop and an HP Deskjet 648C printer. I started getting an "out of paper" error message with a full paper tray. For a while I was able to coax it into printing an entire document but the resume light always started blinking when it finished. Then I started getting the message as soon as it loaded the paper into position to begin printing. Occasionally it printed a few lines and once it printed all but the last couple of lines of the document but never a complete doc. It makes harsh sounds when it tries to engage itself. It doesn't matter what program I'm printing from or from a website. I've tried numerous "fixes" suggested by HP Tech support t (including removing power cord and usb/parallel cable as well as pressing and holding the power button while pressing the resume button 5. 7. 9. or 12 times trying to get it to print a test page, clear itself, etc. to no avail. I am in no position at this time to buy a new printer (lost job, home, and mate) and need printer desperately.
Any suggestion are welcome and appreciated.

I have access to a Xerox Phaser 8200 color laser printer and I was trying to find a solution to my printing needs. I need to print a large amount of pictures with this printer and the solution that Xerox has, is for a specific photo paper that is almost a dollar a page ($23.99 for 25 sheets). I need to make about 400 prints and this is TOO much money.
Does anyone know of another paper that can be substituted besides Professional Solid Ink High-Resolution Photo Paper, part #016-1808-00, for the price stated above. They also have another paper, Phaser Glossy Coated Paper, part #016-1936-00 costing $22.99 for 100 sheets. This is a little better but still quite expensive plus its 100lb cardstock.
Can someone please give me a little assistance with this as I am stumped....
Well it looks like you are using a standard wax printer that used be be made by Tektronix before Xerox bought them out. When we had a printer like that we used to use standard recycled copier paper. If I were you I would go to an office supply shop and pickup a few different types to try. Dont get anything too heavy weight or it will jam in the printer. The real expense of these isn't the paper but the color sticks.
near specs (Phaser 340)
Paper 16-32 lbs
paper type, copier, recycled paper, bond, letterhead, and cover stock
When I go into Word 2003, and select
File > Print > Properties > Paper Source > Paper Type > Settings
I only see 'Plain Paper'.
But all my collegues can see an extra entry for 'Labels'.
How do I add this option ?
Thanks in advance.

She wanted a thin line right on the edge of the page has anyone got any ideas, first I'll tell you what I have done, in word2003 I managed to do a line which was close to the edge, but not close enough as she wanded it on the edge itself, I altered the settings on the printer to borderless tried that but there was a line still and a space at the edge of the page. I even did a text box filled it with colour and pushed it as close to the edge of the paper and tried printing it but to no avail. I tried the same with Word 2010, but just came pu with the same problem......I need to get this storted for next week end.

The printer is fine, and it's making copies and receiving faxes just as it should; the printer itself doesn't show any error messages. However, both of our computers are insisting that they can't print because there's a paper jam. They spool files into the queue and then they just sit there. I've tried canceling all the spooled documents and starting over, we've turned the printer on and off and been over it multiple times, and we can't find a paper jam anywhere except in the network's imagination. Any idea what to try next?

we have a FX ApeosPort-II C4300 fuji printer. we recently updated to Office 2007 from Office 2003.
When we were using Office 2003, i was able to specify paper size for the document i wanted to print in printer's properties, however, since updated to Office 2007 i can't. Actually, i can specify the paper size by choosing custom print then edit the size i want to print but as soon as i click okay button and reopen printer properties i can see paper size did not change. I have already changed the paper size in page set up by the way.
I checked the our printer's properties and it shows under security tab for everyone can "print" section clicked. But "Managed Printer" not clicked. Only power users and administrators have that privilege.
so my question is: the reason i can't specify paper size in the printer properties because i am not a power user and don't have administrator privilege?
Off the top of my head, I'd be inclined to think you simply need to update your printer driver. Have you done so lately?

Ok, this is a strange one... I was working when my system seemed to go a bit crazy, bunch of windows opened up and told me that my virus protection was not working etc.. I closed them all and ran a quick scan with Symtec to see if I had somehow picked up a virus. Decided to reboot. When I restarted the computer I had this strange circle going on. It goes thru a normal bootup, and when it is loading the tray, it starts going in a circle. Starts loading up programs and then restarts and then restarts etc. Most of the time, after 3 or 4 times it ends with just the wall paper visable. Now, at this point the computer seems ok, I can run most any program by starting them in Task Manager ( applications, new task etc...). In fact that is how I signed up for this forum and wrote the note. BUT I cannot get the desktop back. The only way is to run Windows Explorer, via task manager, then you get it back, but it does the circle thing continously. IF you can get a program started during the part of the circle where icons etc are visable, then it will run. SO, I tried doing a restore, went back one day and ran the restore. Seemed to run normally. BUT the symptoms are the same ( now it was close to midnight, so I should have gone back farther). NOW, when I tried to go and do another restore, to go back farther, the restore program runs normally, except it will not let me choose a day. Shows many possible days and the help runs etc.. the buttons "push" but nothing happens.

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!

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.

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
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"

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.
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.
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?

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.

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 .
my only way to do this is to force users to enter a field print (yes/no) and from there the query "yes" and the report be printed.
Is there any way to do this without forcing the user to enter the yes/no. field.

I've been printing half letter paper (8.5x5.5) with my Epson Stylus CX7800, and I have all of the settings correct, paper type, paper size and such (and the paper tray holder thing) but when it comes to printing, it keeps saying "paper jam" even If I take the stack of 12 sheets out, and put one in, I get paper jam. Any tips?
Did you ever consider you might have a paper jam? You have to look down in the works of the printer. There is often a little shard of paper jamming something.
computer freezes, especially when going to facebook.com. I am getting pop-up ads. everything I print on my Brother MFC-440cn printer comes up with a watermark from "Spectrum Glass" When trying to download from your instructions for DDS I get a blank page and no download. 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.

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.
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 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?

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?

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 ??
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.

Gentlemen/Ladies,I?m not sure where to post this question so I?m plumping for this forum, knowing that it will be redirected if it is in the wrong place.Occasionally, when I open a website, its pages are too wide for my monitor and I have to scroll across to the right to see what is hidden from view. When I go to print the pages, I end up with just threequarters of the width of the script.I am using an HP LaserJet 1010 printer.I do not have this problem with all websites. Today, the offender is - http://www.explorenorth.com/whalers/featur...lecaptains1.htmWill the pages of this website be partly displayed on the monitors of all of the people who open it , or are my own ?settings? to blame. Please, how can I overcome the problem ?Yours sincerely, oldsoldier
Hi oldsoldier.I get the same thing when viewing that page. My screen resolution is set to 1024X768. I found that if I went to View>Text Size and set it to Smallest the page almost fit.

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 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.

This time I have a fine vertical line pattern that is not clearly seen unless you have glasses on that magnify them. Unfortunately, I wear glasses that bring them out. What can I do to prevent or get rid of the moire? Any ideas? Thanks, lilart
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?
