Hi guys,
My DNP was working fine at an event, the media run out so I changer it, the four test prints came out, everything seemed fine, I sent another print through, the printer made a noise and tried to print but couldn't, then the paper/ribbon lights started to flash. I took out the paper and ribbon, put them in again, same 4 small test sheets came out, green light on, tied to print, again, paper and media lights flashing.
I put different media in, same thing.
This happened last week, but then rectified itself, I don't know how.

I am using Windows XP and Picassa, when I try to print via Windows, I get the same problem, the messgae is getting to the printer, it just can't print.

Please help!!

Did you change the USB port at all ?
I have this problem sometimes as i have to use the same port each time

I also had it once when i first got the print and had to uninstasll and reinstall the drivers - might be worth a go

Thanks Natalie,

This isn't the problem, I know that because I have had that problem before, I always plug into the same port.
The message is getting to the printer because I can hear it trying to print, it just won't! When I turn the machine off and back on again, the green light comes on, all looks well, then when I send a print, it tries, then the paper and ribbon lights flash.
I have an event this morning and one this evening!!!!!!!
