  1. Printer says 3 documents waiting but no printer in tray to fix


    Printer will not print. Message says 3 documents in print que but there is no printer icon in the tray like ALWAYS. Always before there was a printer icon in the bottom tray where you could go see the printer status and control the printer. Or delete document(s) which have the printer blocked. Looked in devices and find no printer control point. Always nive to have a new version of a Microsoft product, NOT. Windows 10 ---- One problem after another. Almost like the old DOS upgrade days. New upgrade, boat load of new issues.

  2. printer trays don't follow the instructions in Word/printer/page_setup

    Hi Denny,

    There are several reasons why an issue occurs, sometimes this may be caused by some files or components that are broken or missing on the system. To sort out your concern, we suggest that you follow the steps provided on this article on how to
    fix printer problems in Windows 10. Once you're done, check if the issue

    To remove your printer

    • Click Start > Settings > Devices > Printers and Scanners.
    • Under the Printers and Scanners, find and select the printer and click
      Remove device.

    To reinstall your printer

    • Click Start > Settings > Devices > Printers and Scanners > Add a printer or scanner.
    • Make sure that your printer is on and connected to your computer.
    • It will scan the available device that is connected to your PC, wait for it until it finds a printer, and then select
      Add device.
    • Download and install the latest printer driver by visiting the manufacturer's website.

    Note: You can print a test page to make sure that the printer is working correctly.

    Printer advice

    hp printers have the most expensive ink of all printers, the most economical is cannon and epson so i suggest if you looking to keep costs down look at those brands.

    that being said it may not have the best print quality if it uses less costly ink.

    if keeping cost down is the most important then shop in reverse, find a brand that has cheap replacement ink cartridges then see what printers they are used on. then from that list look to see if you like any of those printers and if they are affordable to you, if not then select another ink cartridge and look at the printers that those are used on. this method will give you the most affordable printer and the cheapest cost of replacement ink.

    personally i use the refillable ink cartridges like these: http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/catalog/Our-Epson-Refill-Kits-orderby0-p-1-c-4.html
