Hello.

My printer has stopped working after I inserted a new color ink cartridge. Everything goes fine: It turns on, it makes it's usual noises and it loads paper correctly. When I try to print a document however, it does nothing. It says "Printing Document 1" on the monitor, but nothing happens at the printer. :)

Hope anyone can be of assistance to me. I have an HP PSC 1350 "All-In-One" printer. :tazz:

Try cleaning out the print jobs for your printer. If you are using Windows XP, to do this, go to START --> PRINTERS & FAXES. Double click on the name of hte printer that corresponds to the printer you are using. Then in the new window that appears, click File and Cancel All Documents. Then back in the Printer & Faxes window, right click on your printer and select PROPERTIES. Then try and print a TEST PAGE. Where this is located is different for each printer so just look around the tabs until you find a button that you can click that says PRINT TEST PAGE.

I tried printing a test page but with no luck I'm afraid. Nothing happens at all. The printer is turned on, but when trying to print it just "freezes". :tazz:
