I have a printer that I thought had given up the ghost.  I might give that a try!

 

Bet it'll work fine after that  :roflmao:

Wow!!! Glad I found an easier fix --- :2thumbsup:

 

My printer prints ok, it's just it wont stay off. I have the printer to shut down after about an hour on idle, it shuts down ok, but it doesn't like to be off, so it turns itself back on.  It will do this all day, (off than back on), :confused: so I just turn it off, by using the button on the printer, than it stays off.  :yes:

Probably a "sleep" energy-saver feature for that computer; somewhere in whatever utility screen it has will be a way to turn that feature off. It's probably not worth your time spent trying to find it if your work-around is good enough.

Hi ranchhand,

 

Well I did try to check the printer out some more,  :mellow:  and I think I'll just do what I have been doing, push the off button on the printer for now.  :)

 

Thanks for trying to help.

You could always try this fix procedure and afterwards buy a new one.
It'll probably work fine after that.
