My printer, as is its wont, decides to cease operations or act weird at the worst opportunity. Its latest trick is refusing to print. When I hit print on my computer, say for a Word document, the printer will fire up and make those diligent printer noises. I can hear and see the arm/thingie with the cartridge on it moving back and forth, and it sounds like it’s working like hell. But the pages come out blank. Moreover, it will continue spitting out blank pages until all the paper is gone, then it has to be unplugged, or it’ll sit there flashing the “No Paper” light. So, what’s the problem?
The printer is networked. It’s actually attached to my girlfriend’s computer. We have a small LAN here, hooked up through a gateway/router. It’s an HP Deskjet 3320. Inkjet. Both our computers are running Windows XP Professional. Her stuff will print fine, it’s mine that has the problems. Though sometimes rebooting her computer will make my stuff print.
