Reasons Behind Printer Not Printing
What are the reasons behind the printer not printing?
Printer is the device, which could provide you with the hard copy of the data stored in computers or other electronic devices. Most of the printers are connected via cables. In the modern printers, USB cable is used for the connection. Advanced printers such as the Network Printers, they have the wireless or Ethernet based connection. If you are taking good care of your printer and if you are servicing it on a regular basis, you could ensure that it always prints well. There could be a number of reasons behind your printer, not printing. Most of these could easily be fixed by you itself.
Following are some of the reasons behind your printer is not printing:
- Problems with cable
- Driver problem
- Problem with printer
Problems with cable
Loose or faulty cable connection could be the most common reason why your printer is failing to print. You could always check that the light indication is shown on the printer, immediately after turning the power ON. That could ensure that the supply has come to the printer. If not, you could conclude that there’s some problem with the connection. In order to fix the issue, you might remove the cable and reconnect it. You might also make sure that all the connections are intact.
Troubles with the driver of the printer are another reason behind the printer failing to print. Driver is an important component that helps your printer function properly. Sometimes, you might have forgotten to install the driver, although you have physically integrated the printer. If the driver is not present, your printer might fail to print at all. In order to fix the issue, you might make sure that, you are having the driver, corresponding to the printer, in your system. If the driver is outdated, that might also cause the same problem. You might regularly update your driver, in order to fix the issue.
If you have ensured that you have the driver intact and it is updated, you might feel relieved. But, troubles associated with the printer, such as lack of ink in the cartridges, or some faults with the printing mechanism could also end up in the printer not printing. In order to fix the issue, you might service your printer regularly and maintain it properly. You could seek the help of a qualified technician, if you are unable to fix the issue.
