HPdeskjet 940c is printing out rubbish

  Tabatha 00:22 21 Feb 2006


I'm a bit perplexed here. Some paper got stuck in my printer just now. Luckily I have sorted that problem out, but my printer has gone mad -
keeps printing out strange letters - almost like some foreign writing unknown to man -

It then won't stop printing out this rubbish until I turn it off.

I am in limbo!!

Help. Thanks Tabatha

Does it sort itself out if you leave it without power for five minutes or so to allow the data in the buffer to be lost? Switch it off completely at the mains socket.

1. Go to START/Printers/faxes- double click on the printer icon - and look for the panel with the documents waiting to be printed.
Highlight them, right click. click delete.
This will take a lttle time for the spool memory to clear.
Now restart the machine.

Start the print process again
