    Hi @M45,

If you want to say 'Thank you' to my effort to help, click on the "thumbs up" to give me a Kudos.

    I would like to do a hard reset to see if that will solve the problem.

    1. Let the printer and disconnect the printer cable and the wall socket for 60 seconds.
    2. Reconnect the power cable to the output of the printer and the wall, and not a surge protector. This ensures that the printer is full on and can help this situation.
    3. Make sure that the printer is connected directly to a wall outlet (do not use a bar or a surge protector).

  • adjust the printer settings

    my printer has suddenly stopped printing in black ink, after installing a new cartledge. I can't find how to enter printer setting to possibly adjust the black ink. It prints in color.

    Any help would be appreciated.


    ·         What is the brand and model of your printer?

    ·         What happens when you try to print in black?

    ·         Have you received an error message?

    Method 1: I suggest you try to print a black-and-white test page and find the issue.

    Method 2: Clean the print cartridge nozzle and check for the issue. To do so follow the steps below:

    (a) unplug the printer from its

    and remove the device print cartridges. Most printers contain at least two cartridges, one for black and one for the color.

    (b) locate the small holes in the printer where the toner cartridges are installed. Put 10 drops of isopropyl alcohol in each nozzle using a pipette.

    (c) use a soaked q-tip with alcohol to swab around the nozzles to loosen and remove dried ink that has accumulated on top. Let the alcohol evaporates.

    (d) run the printer cleaning and diagnostic test. Repeat steps 2 through 4 as required until the printer produces clean copy.

    Also check the settings of the printer.

    I have a new printer, an Epson XP 430. My previous printer was also an Epson. With my old printer, when I chose to print (for a document, web page, etc.) the dialog always had an option to choose, black and white. I also could add to the presets and edit presets.

    With this printer, I can see the presets, but I can't make changes. When I click on view Presets, it is not an option for adding a new preset as it was with my old printer and remove and duplicate boxes are grayed out.

    I guess that this is due to the printer, not OS X, as I noticed the difference when I started using the new printer. Am I missing something somewhere? I rarely print in color, so I would have a preset that specifies black & white.

    Thank you.


    Since you have a new printer, you can create new presets. This is done through the printer with the selected printer dialog box, not through the page view Presets. When you select this option to print do the settings that you want to create a preset for and then click on the drop down preset menu. Select "Save current settings as preset" and enter a name for the new preset.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8620: Locked out of the printer settings

When I rebooted the machine, I proceeded to return to the network settings in order to capture the wireless information however I received the error "function has been locked by the administrator or the person who set up your printer".

    After some searching through the forums, I printed a wireless test and the results were a single FAILURE for Wireless on.

    Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  • message the printer offline

    I have a desktop HP Pavilion with Windows 8 and a HP Officejet 4500 printer. I get a "printer offline" message when I try to print - even when the printer is turned on and connected to the radio. I find when I uninstall the printer and reinstall, it works very well for a day or two. But then the problem comes back. I need a permanent solution to this problem. You don't know if it's important but uses Avast security program.


    I would that disable you the program Avast and re try printing. Check out the helpful video I found below on YouTube.com:
