Q:
What should I do if my printout contains garbled characters when I print from Windows?
A:
If incorrect characters appear in your prints, try these solutions before reprinting:

  • Make sure any cables are securely connected at both ends.
  • In Windows, delete all print jobs from the Windows Spooler:

    • Windows 8.x: Navigate to the Apps screen and select Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers. Right-click your product name, select See what's printing, and select your product name again, if necessary. Right-click the stalled print job, click Cancel, and click Yes.
    • Windows 7: Click and select Devices and Printers. Right-click your product name, select See what's printing, and select your product name again, if necessary. Right-click the stalled print job, click Cancel, and click Yes.
    • Windows Vista: Click and select Control Panel. Click Printer under Hardware and Sound, right-click your product name, and select Open. Right click the stalled print job, click Cancel, and click Yes.
    • Windows XP: Click Start and select Printers and Faxes. (Or open the Control Panel, select Printers and Other Hardware if necessary, and select Printers and Faxes.) Right-click your product name, select Open, right-click the stalled print job, click Cancel, and click Yes.

  • If your product is connected to a USB hub, connect it directly to your computer instead.
  • If incorrect characters still appear in your prints, try connecting your product using a different cable.
