  • My printer is fighting for its life

    When I try to print something it just goes to the print queue. The other night I hit print and the document parked in the print queue. When I got up in the morning it had printed.

    Somebody please tell me why it won't print immediately.

    The life of my printer is dependent on a quick answer.

    Reinstall your printer drivers.

      You know... you can buy a printer for no more than the cost of the ink that comes with the printer...

      I recommend you smash this one.

        Plug in the USB cable. Your wife unplugged it to hookup the camera...

              You still got the ink. Smash it anyway.

              Just be sure to buy the same model so you can re-use the ink...

                  Put in the CD that came with.

                  Autorun should take it from there.

                    ...we're on the edge of our seats.

                    Actually, I am tres sympathetic.
                    Our old war horse HP seemed to be fading fast....80% of the document would print dark---but the upper 20% was faded.
                    So I talked the powers to be into buying a new one.
                    Then days later, the office genius changed the toner---even though there was no low toner warning.
                    Ta-Dah!!!!!!!!
                    Now, what to do with this new HP printer.

                      Is it Windows?

                        Yes it's Windows.

                        I bought an HP 855 in 1995 for $500.

                        It worked flawlessly for 11-12 years but last Christmas my mother-in-law bought us a new printer. That POS would go through an ink cartridge in a week with minimal usage but my wife wouldn't replace it because it was a gift from her mother.

                        She finally agreed to replace it and that's gotten us where we are now.

                        For those keeping score at home I uninstalled the program last night and am reinstalling it as we speak.

                          That's a good move--usually. It's normally the best way to reinstall your drivers (sorry no response earlier to your "how do I do that?"; I went to bed). Are you running XP or Vista?

                            It'd be best to go to the manufacturers site and get the most up to date drivers for the thing, rather than installing from the disc.

                              The reinstallation worked. Thanks for the help.
