Printers


Who needs them?

I've been trying to print something off today and my printer keeps saying no

The computer is saying it can't find the printer even though the printer's plugged in, switched on and connected up correctly

to the printer and the computer!!!

Re: Printers


Do you need to re-install the printer driver? Try switching both PC and printer off and restarting. Sometimes they just loose contact with each other and you need to force them to see each other again!

Re: Printers


I have that problem with my daughters printer. She always wants to print her homework on a sunday night. a few sundays before it took me a hour to realise to get it too print from the front tray. I started to print and it made a awful racket. Tried feeding paper through and it spat out a piece of wire from a toy which had fallen down the back of it. Printed fine after that. Otherwise i phone my brother up and he goes through what i am doing wrong and that usually works if it doesnt he will come for tea and i wont let him go until its fixed.
