printer will not print
My Minolta PagePro 1350W laser printer set up fine, and printed pages, days ago. Today it will not print at all, not even a test page. The pages are in the queue, the printer is on, it's connected, it's just not printing. It does need ink, but it's not Printing at all. Not even attempting. Is it because it is reading that it is out of ink?
In all my previous printers, if I ran out of ink, it would just put out a blank page. Then I have to go buy more ink.
But this ink is expensive! I don't want to get more ink if the printer is not going to print.
Why would it print before and not even go through the motions now?
I just spent a lot of money getting new ink for my ink jet printer, Lexmark Z611, which would not print at all with Linux after it was installed.
So I don't want to spend a lot of money I don't have on ink for a printer that is not going to work. I cannot afford a new printer.
But I am a writer. Both of these printers worked before I got into Linux. Help!
