Top 5 Printing Problems

May 30, 2009

The top 5 printing problems I’ve found so far, in no particular order…

Printing Paused

Somehow (and everyone denies knowledge) pause printing has been ticked.

Not Connected to Computer

USB or Parallel cable is unplugged from the computer. This is necessary for printing to work.

Not Connected to Power

The printer has been unplugged from the mains. This is also necessary for printing to work.

Wrong Paper Size

This is quite a common cause of printing woe in the UK as well. The paper size has been set to “Letter” for printing but the printer only has A4 and so won’t output.

Microsoft One Note

Microsoft One Note installs along with Office 2007 and sets itself as the default printer. So when you try and print you get a nice window on the screen containing the output you would have liked to come from the printer.
