This is so weird, I don't even know how to explain it. I have a Canon PIXMA IP 4000. I have Office 2007 and Win XP. I have IE 6 and Service Pack 3.
For the most part, the printer prints fine. Then, without warning, it doesn't. All I get is a blank sheet. Or, like the one I attached which only prints background stuff but not the text of the document.
I've tried everything I can think of. I uninstalled and reinstalled printer. I tried saving the document in RTF and a myriad of other formats. Nothing works. When I want a problem document printed, I email it to my husband. Interestingly, he can't print it either without making a copy first and then printing the copy. That makes you think it's "Read Only" but I've looked at the document but it doesn't seem to be "Read Only". I even burned the offending document to a CD and took it to a printer. They had the same problem but after copying it and saving to a new file, it printed. However, when I do it, it doesn't work
I'm ready to tear my hair out. What could be doint this?
