I hadnt altered my printer at all, its been fine for about 2 years.
Its a HP deskjet 3650, usualy does exactly what i want. but lately it started to print a page or two then gives a blank page and forgets the rest, the print head starts to move round and make a new strange noise (not a broken noise, just new).
i was low on ink so i changed the black, still no luck. As the spooler only seemed to be sending some of the data i stopped the print spool service and deleted all files in the "printer" folder (C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\printers), restarted the service but had no luck
after it attemps to send the data to the printer, it usualy stops half way and when i click cancel it says "status: deleting" forever.
i thought it may be my PC so i wired it up to my laptop and had the same problem.
I thought there may be a hold up getting the data to the printer as it doesnt seem to be switching its self on anymore so i changed the cable and had no luck.
I think its a problem with the actual printer but not sure what. i dont think its a hardware problem as it can still print, i think it may be a conection/ memory problem
can anyone help!??
