Hello everyone,
Anyone out there know how to get a printer up and running again? The symptoms of my printer are as follows
1. It says error and fails to print.
2. It says, if I try to put more than one copy on it, that my printer is past capacity?/! Can only print one at a time. (I've never heard of that error b4)
3. I just switched from my portable canon after I was having the same problems with it, but I finally got it to print only to run out of ink. So then I switched to my epson 740, that was fine just a few days ago, the last time that I used it.

I've tried the spool thing, and the port thing, and everything else besides uninstalling the printer and starting over again. If that has merit, I guess I'll do that then.

What is the error that is given when it fails? Is this computer connected by a USB port or parallel port?

If you have the CD with the drivers you could try uninstalling the printer and load the drivers an see if that takes care of it.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
