    Can't print off Paint...... Can someone help me please xx

    I have made some invites using 'paint' (and no, not the liquid stuff:p lol). I printed 30 of them off earlier but ran out of paper...I've just tried to print off another 10 but it's moving and making the right noises etc.. but just blank sheets are coming out! I tried to print somewhere else and it worked fine. Does anybody know what I'm doing wrong please xx

    Have you ran out of ink ha ha



    lmao sounds like the sorta thing I'd do tbh:oops: but just bought the colour yesterday.....so something would work even if I'm outa black wouldn't it??? :? Or not? :oops:

    Dont new ink cartridges have little things on them that you need to pull out when you install them?

    You know like the things that go over batterys to stop them running out in toys.

    I dunno, I dont have a printer so I'd maybe not listen to me.

    Oh and you did buy coloured cartridges right? And not just black?

    Where is says "Paper" make sure you select "A4 210 x 297" and 'Source' = Sheet

    In Scaling, try setting it to "Fit to 1 by 1 pages"...

    see if that makes any difference...

    Source says 'Automatically select' or u can change it to 'upper tray' :?

    Done the other bit...just waiting now...

    Edit: Nope, still nothing :-(
