Printer not printing


I have an Epson Stylus CX3200. It was working fine until a week ago now. Not sure what I did or did not do that might have caused this.

Problem: my laptop says it is sending the document to the printer and then the programs freeze and to make it go away I have to kill it. The printer (ink cartridges are all brand new) flashes a few times between the regular screen on it and "Printing..." then it says "Printing..." and nothing happens.

I need to be able to print! So will appreciate some help getting things going again.

  1. try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer drivers/software. It also sounds like you may have a dodgy USB cable/USB port.
  2. Hello,

    What worked for me was pretty simple. It seems to have completely settled the problem...whatever was going on.

    Fix: I unplugged my laptop and pulled out the battery so it sat completely dead for a minimum of 5 minutes. Then, I replugged it in and everything was working fine.


    Thank you for your efforts to help!
