How To Troubleshoot Your Printer

Data Recovery and other PC Services in Leigh, Lancashire.
Check your printer cable connections
  • Make sure your printer cable is securely connected between the PC and printer. The cable should be less than 10 feet (3 m) long, as the signal depletes after 10 feet.
  • Check for any bent pins on the printer cable. If you find any, straighten them with needle-nose pliers.
  • If you aren't sure about your cable, try swapping it with one from another printer. If the printer suddenly starts working, you know that your original cable is defective.
  • Refer to the image number 1, in the left hand collumn if you are unsure what the cable connections should look like.
Update and reload your drivers
  • Check the Web site for your printer's manufacturer and download the latest version of the driver software for your printer.
  • Open the Printers folder through the Start, Settings menus.
  • Right-click on the icon for your printer.
  • Choose Delete.
  • Double-click on the Add Printer icon in the Printers folder, refer to image number 2.
  • Follow the Add Printer wizard directions to reinstall the driver software.

  • Right-click on the icon for your printer, then select Properties, refer to image number 3.
