Selected FAQ

Q:
Only garbled text is printing with my PC or Mac. Why?
A:
The interface cable may not be securely connected. Turn off the printer and computer. Disconnect and reconnect the cable on both the printer and computer. Make sure the printer is directly connected to the computer and not through a pass through device such as a switchbox. Make sure the printer cable is fully-shielded and meets the printer's specifications (a Belkin USB cable is recommended when you are using a Macintosh computer or a Belkin cable with a length of 6 feet or less if you are using a PC). If you are using a PC, try printing a screen from a DOS prompt. If the DOS print screen is garbled, try using a different printer cable. If you are only experiencing the issue when trying to print from Windows (but the DOS print screen prints OK), make sure you are using the correct driver. Select the Stylus Photo 2000P as your default printer driver. Check for and delete any stalled print jobs. If you are using a Macintosh, make sure AppleTalk is turned off in the Chooser and make sure you always leave the printer turned off until the Macintosh is fully booted.
