    My Brother Printer is useless. Ain't Heavy and ain't my brother!

    For you young snappers there was a song in my era "He ain't heavy, he's my brother." Well that surely dated me. :) I have a fairly new Brother Printer Brother MFC-J491DW [ec5c6831d77f] I don't know why. Can't explain it but went to use it and it wasn't listed anymore. Always has been. I have...

    Banding or Horizontal Lines on Print - Epson ET4550

    Wow! That's a new one for me. Never had a well type. Maybe there could be some wear on the nozzle. Depending on how much you use it. Paper is soft, but it's like a micro-fine sandpaper to the extreme of course. But paper will wear things down. ?? Just a possible scenario. I'm curious how old the...

    WF 5690- How to change from wireless to ethernet connection

    As I said. The same thing as support. It's maybe tedious but in such a move I think a whole fresh start is called for. Good luck. I've done it several times.

    Banding or Horizontal Lines on Print - Epson ET4550

    They say don't answer if you don't really know. I don't. But so many of our issues find resolution by trial and error. Have you taken the ink pods out, waited a bit and replaced them. Is there anyway an ink head could have gotten damaged or finger prints on them? Can you put new pods in there to...

    WF 5690- How to change from wireless to ethernet connection

    Might it be you have to go back to the installation disk? Or download the whole program. I use wireless, always have. But I guess if I wanted to switch I do an uninstall and a clear install. Not even from the last program in your Downloads Folder. Just get a new fresh one, unless you have the...

    Oh, I've been to Control Panel, Devices and Printers but can find nothing there concerning ink levels.

    Cannot find ink level anywhere on my Epson desktop icons.

    I have searched and search everywhere you can find anything about Epson applications on my drive. Even Maintenance does not show ink levels. Just Nozzle Clean and I guess another. Print page maybe! But I find levels no where to view. Of course on the printer screen but it's in the next room. I...

    New Ink Refill reports Expired?

    HP C7280 All in One Wireless I hate this about this printer, that these ink carts are always telling you they're near gone, or about expired or expired and blah blah yadda yadda I put a new cartridge in and it reports expired. I then got to thinking how old the "new" cartridge was. That is...

    I have the HP C7200 series All In One Wireless. I have had it installed on this present PC in the past.

    HP All-In-One gives false jam report!

    Well, it's false as best I can see. The C7280 has been a great product for almost 2 years, until today. Mind you, it's a creampuff. Even the inks expire before I use them up. That's another problem but it works through with pressing ARROW/OK. This problem is the paper jammed for the frist time...

It has a large registry profile and installs many HP programs in the installation. You can never tell when but the installation of...
